    they SHOULD NOT! Fired and let them be independent. . . it'll work that way. Why I'm saying they should not is that because we have better talented youngster. Send those youngsters to GP and SS more and let Koo/Tan rot in their on world.

    Not surprising result. But they practically gifted the match away with innumerable unforced errors. It was more painful to watch than getting my teeth pulled. :(

    c'mon guys, it wasn't that bad. This pair sarang/kijung from korea is actually really good. From that final, we can see their footwork is pretty fast and they can be a top pair in the world in a matter of time once Cai/Fu are gone.

    Koo Tan just didn't have the right tactics in the final because they haven't met this korean pair before. They almost forced a decider but in the end just didn't happen.

    Somehow, I got this "FUNNY FEELING" if BAM breaks them up, both of them will quit playing for Malaysia and go start a badminton coaching business ;) !! Both their "unsaid" body languages and hints are pointing that way ... they keep saying give us another year or two ...

    i think mostly they didnt want to start a new partnership from scratch and hence, their benefits as a top pair will be given to others. They did threaten to quit if split so many many many times... everytime that the idea of splitting them came up, they wil threaten to quit and last time, BAM/NSC/bla bla was afraid and just kept quiet, so it worked. This time, they did the same thing... everything was the same, the idea, the threats but its just that this time, NSC were pretty firm in that decision and therefore, KKK/TBH were the ones who got chickened and stop the threats and even said that they are willing to partner others but at the same time begging top ppl not to split.. I dont think the idea of quitting ever crossed their minds, they were just saying it(guess they learn it fr ex-coach Rexy bout the threats part). Imagine the amount of luxurious income and benefits they will lose if they quit. They enjoy the fame too much to really quit!

    KKK is like the Taufik Hidayat of mens doubles. Sometimes being too skillful can bring a lot of harm in your game. Being able to produce extraordinary shots also means that your game produces many mistakes/errors in the process too.

    In this respect Cai/Fu are the more balanced players, they have some amazing shots in their game(less so than KKK), but a lot of times they stick to their task with less surprises which also means less mistakes.

    KKK is a talent, but sadly like Taufik, it doesn't materialize on a consistent basis. There are glimpses of brilliance for a few years but even when he is at his best, he is prone to many errors(service fault, hitting at the net, not getting easy shots or defending well etc.)

    They have terrible record against both previous partnership. Let's see if they continue their terrible record against both halves!
