    If Voltric 70/80 is so good, why aren't they using it? Probably because the racket doesn't make much difference.

    All the attacking was done by TBH.....Luckily KKK got back in to the game.....They had to play 3 sets against an unseeded and unheard Netherlands pair of Ruud Bosch and Koen Ridder......3rd set belonged to Malaysia......Still go indon pair to play....They r really all offensive..... ​

    Rexy and BAM have NO GUTS to split this pair.

    '' They will come back.''

    ''They are still young.''

    ''Give them chance.''

    ''They are still top-10 pairs in the world.''

    like all malaysian players, after a few wins they were celebrated as gods. was given much rewards and recognition.
    bcos boleh-land is always starve of success.

    now, after the all the top pairs studied their game and learnt how to neutralize them, kkk/tbh never won any significant tournaments ady.
    it has even come to a stage where their junior team mates can defeat them

    it's time to kill off and bury both of them.

    all top pairs have their ups and downs...so we cant really say KKK/TBH are that bad...
    just among the tops...they are a bit behind...with few runner ups for majors....WC, AE and AG...

    In fact, TBH was actually blaming the shuttlecock for their recent loss to the INA pair. Never thought I would see the day a top professional badminton player blaming a loss on shuttlecocks. KKK/TBH have truly lost the plot. On a given day, they can easily match any doubles pair in the world in terms of skill, speed and power. Unfortunately for them, consistency is their biggest problem and mental strength and will has alot to do with that.

    They really need to realize that one does not lose skill, speed and power overnight. In rexy, they have one of the best coaches around to train
    them in terms of game tactics. They are still young and they have all the ingredients to succeed, really hope they pull it together for real.

    Next will be the shoes. socks, the lighting, the surface and finally, the crowd. Is racquet in the list already?

    Malaysians are a patient lot.
