Just watched the Copenhagen Final. Gunawan, Bach vs Fu Cai. Bach's improvement since WC is remarkable. He follows the shots so much better and is starting to create offense with his shots. While his smashes aren't exactly devastating... his defense has excelled. Howard Bach seems like he is becoming an at least decent if not good international badminton player. One more thing. Its tough to play with a player who much better with you no matter what level. For Howard Bach to play with Tony Gunawan and to improve is huge. Playing with a legend basically puts all the pressure on you. If you lose it is your fault. At first when I watched WC in Anaheim I wasn't sure about Bach but know I have huge respect for him.
