    The preliminary rounds kill the poor korean shoulder :D so enough time for kkk/tbh to rest and beat the crap out of their next opponent :D

    tomorrow Koo/Tan will face Olympic champion Fu/Cai, if Koo/Tan win HK SS, I want them to do 'Gangnam Style' right after they win the matchpoint...

    Have you text them? But the last two victors that did the "Gangnam Style" did not do well or compete in the following tournament.

    Maybe. Koo didn't do well in FO and injured in HKO. BoMo didn't take part.

    If Koo/Tan fail to win tomorrow... their run without a super series title will be further extended to almost 2 YEARS.. unless they can win super series finals next month, but the chances of that is very small since BoMo and all the KOR pairs are playing in it....

    Tomorrow is their best chance for finally get a title... If not they have to wait for a long time more.

    Wish they could do it, but Cai/Fu look like they got their rhythm back since their last tournament.

    KOO is famous for his 'freestyle' on court.. not necessary to do it after they win the match point though.

    Even KSH/LYD could beat Cai/Fu...

    The truth hurts, but ever since KKK/TBH started playing together they were never champion material, maybe a world top 5 pair..... but not the best.

    Even during 2006-2010 , when they were ranked number 1, they had to raise their game to beat the likes of Cai/Fu or DEN/KOR pairs each time they met. During this period they overachieved at best. and many times there were INA pairs like Alvin/Chandra , Kido/Setiawan to brush away other KOR/DEN pairs or Cai/Fu each time so Koo/Tan could win titles by avoiding other bogey pairs they struggled against.

    During 2006-2010, pairs like Zaky/Fairuzizuan , Kido/Setiawan could win major titles. Now there are more fast and furious pairs like KSH/LYD, KIM/KIM on the scene... this puts Koo/Tan out of the picture...

    Whether we like it or not, this is as good as it gets for Koo/Tan. (Reaching semis/finals on a consistent basis.). For all Koo/TAn fans out there, you should relish the form they are in right now.

    They have lost the hunger to play and win titles. Yes, they still can remain top 10 in the rankings and reach at least the QF in future tournaments. Nevertheless, they just don't have the heart to go all out and win against top pairs. Too relax and not serious on the court I would say. BAM should have the guts to punish them in order for them to improve their attitude towards the game.

    I don't think they are too relax, lost hunger to win bla bla ... :eek: it has become their style of play and if not, does it mean going inside the court looking like rambo can come out a winner? :D just look at the champion prize money and that of runner up:D maybe we should give credit to the winner instead. It was the chinese pair that kept their rhythm high and pressure on them forcing them to concede defeat eventually ... :p

    People like you are never satisfied and always got something negative to say. Even when they were winning you say they overachieved, got lucky etc.

    Even if KKK/TBH beat Cai/Fu yesterday you might come up with an excuse, not good enough because never win in style. So they lost so what? At least they are doing so much better now compared to before where always out 1st or 2nd round.

    Wait a minute, I am sure you got another negative comment to justify why this is the case. I give up.
