    I love JJS. He is a living proof that height is not a disadvantage in badminton. He's one of my idols.

    ..if Rexy and that M'sian coach Yap Kim Hock can play as if they're 185cm tall, why can't JJS??..;)

    JJS leaps very high.

    He'snot only a smasher, he can pretend to hit a powerful jump smash, and then, at the last moment, make a delicate drop shot instead. Isn't that amazing?

    Gill Clark always says that in doubles, you have to make your partner look good. This is what exactly JJS does to his partner. And I think that LYD is not afraid to take the half chances at the front court because he knows that JJS always got his back. That is what you call real partnership.

    Having a cannon smash just makes this shot all the more annoying to the opponents:D. Apparently he's quite famous for it on tour.

    The more of these two I watch the more I think they are the most evenly-matched MD pair I have ever seen; almost everyone else has a bias, however slight, but these two move around each other so smoothly and seem to be happy anywhere on court... really looking forward to seeing them at the AE next month:). If you want the best example of them in action, watch the China Open final from last year - an extraordinary game:eek:.

    Is this against the Malaysian pair? I soooo much agree. Their rotation here was superb. They're everywhere. They've pretty much covered every corners of the court. Amazing! :eek:

    I totally agree with you, I really think he's extremely underratet because people always talk about Lee Yong Dae (I agree he's superb :p). I esspecially like him since im a small player myself :D

    big adjustment will be made, think of who were their partners are, hendra for Kido and LYD for JJS, these players (hendra and LYD) dominates the front play a lot....

    Yh i have thought about that alot too :p. What if u would like mix up JJS/LYD, KKK/THB, FU/CAI, MK/HS what would be the best pair, if u can't combine a front player and a back player :p, i guess it would be JJS/MK or KKK/LYD

    Well, Jung and Park have already all but finished their military service so gold in Guangzhou couldn't have helped them. Ko/Yoo were the ones who missed out this time and Shin Baek Cheol still has a chance.
