    IMHO, Chris Adcock is turning to be a solid player recently. We shall see if Robert Blair will continue to partner him in the LR. Yup...this ENG pair also forced the Korean duo to rubber-set, quite surprising I would say.

    Likewise, Mathias Boe/Carsten Mogensen have seriously become DEN's most feared pair as they still have many years in them (compared to Paaske/Rasmussen).

    As predicted, all the top pairs will have their moments of glory as it's difficult to expect them to win tournaments after tournaments. There will be the odd moments where they lost in a shocking way to some lower-ranked pairs. So, expect more surprises come next year and hopefully the emergence of more pairs in MD.

    My picks of the young MDs: Kwon Yi Goo/Ko Sung Hyun, Cho Gun Woo/Yoo Yeon Seong, Wifqi Windarto/Afiat Yuris Wirawan. These 3 pairs have shown interesting progressing and have started to beat some veteran pairs.

    As for the WR#1, it might be rotated among several pairs. Remember, Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae have lots of points to defend from the German Open, All-England, Swiss, and Thomas Cup. Likewise, Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan also have to defend points from the MAS Open, Olympics, and the 3 SS titles they won in China Masters, Denmark and French Opens.

    I will not be surprised if some other pairs can take the no 1 position as well.

    Tan Kim Her is a factor, no doubt ...... :)

    The theory is he will be bringing Adcock up similar to how he spotted and trained Lee Yong Dae.

    Now, if only TKH has one more decent young talent, ENG MD might return to the world class heights of Ray Steven/Mike Tredgett and Mike Tredgett/Martin Dew era in the 70s and early 80s.

    By the way, what happened to Yoo Youn Seong/Han Sang Hoon? I thought the pairing had a lot of promise. They were in the All-England in 2007.

    Han Sang Hoon was focussed in the MD in 2007 and he had some brief success with Lee Hyo Jung, beating some top pairs too. Yoo Yeon Seong is now partnered with Cho Gun Woo, LYD's partner in the WJC days. Meanwhile, I believe we shall see Hwang Ji Man partnering Han Sang Hoon yet again for 2009, since Lee Jae Jin has formally retired from the Korea National Team.

    Tan Kim Her is also probably one factor why INA XD pairs have tough times against ENG's Anthony Clark/Donna Kellogg. Blair/Adcock have also beaten AG/Joko in the Japan Open this year.

    I heard when TKH was coaching KOR players, he usually enjoyed "betting matches" for $10 each. I wonder if he's doing it in ENG too. :)

    LYD once said during BWF 2008 Yeosu Challenge Open held in Korea just before SSF:

    "The Asian players are somewhat easier to play with in comparison to European players, because Asians tend to return strong for our strong hits while Europeans mix with strong and weak ones properly."

    That's exactly what I saw in the MD Final of SSF when JJS/LYD lost to KKK/TBH. At the match, Koo/Tan were very calm mixing their strength in their returns while JJS/LYD was unusually in rush. MAS seemed to start to know the secret. :)

    TKH does not coach Clark/Kellog and Nathan...unless they ask him to coach them on the side,...he decides to train young players only....YES! Adcock is one of the promising one to come..Adcock and Blair stays in KLRC to train after SS Final...

    The friendly HTK said to us that Korea will win 2-0 against KKK/TBH then Tony said how much is the bet if Korea did not win 2-0....:DHTK did not want to bet....

    Yeah, if he wanted to win the bet he should have done in the previous Super Series game in China when KOR beat the MAS duo by 2-0. :)

    That's the past long ago two years ago when the duo was learning around the world .... Now this is the age of KOR duo as you have seen recently. :)

    Once again, Koo/Tan showed their mentality problem in finishing the game.

    Actually they seemed to succeed but the learned KOR duo made it come back finally with four consecutive points. This is home ground for Koo/Tan and they at least should have won this match, anyway, they improved a lot recently and are expected to be ranked 2 very soon as they seem better than Kido/Setiawan. :)

    just happened to know a friend who was chris adcock schoolmate, he told me that chris was injured during his junior years n was out of the sports for a full year. when he returned to the court after one year, his was still the best (national junior wise). i heard he somehow maintain his ranking too because he was so good b4 he got injured n no one overtakes him during the year off.

    i believe chris is same age as LYD, born 1988

    wud b nice to c him get a medal in the london olympics 2012

    by the way, he is from nottingham area...

    I always check the stats and how the scores were going, that gives some partial but crucial information for the matches. In the third game, you can see that even though Koo/Tan showed their full strength to make 12 pts by smash the net winner made the difference - it was 8:4 for KOR. As you might expect, LYD must have got many net points at the finishing stage. Net play and control is the most difficult part in badminton that requires higher concentration and right movement. :)

    Rudy Hartona is a legend, agree?

    Now, do you need to be there to actually watch the man in action to ascertain that he is indeed a legend?

    You know what happen when you assume right? :rolleyes:

    One might be a legend, doesn't mean he'll make all the net kills at the later stage of a double game, like someone here proclaimed (which is purely based on assumption). :cool:

    As far as equating LYD to Rudy Hartono's....well, lets just said someone is really pushing for something...
