    imho, his style is the badminton equivalent of brazilian football. Cool and entertaining to watch, but sometimes too flashy and that's when mistakes and loss of concentration creeps in. Good for sponsors though because he gets the "airtime" from tv cameras with his flashy and arrogant style. But not good for real supporters because he disappoints them by self-destructing during games....not to mention letting his own partner TBH down!!@!

    agree with shutterbug... maybe too flashy. to be honest, he's a joy to watch, however he does go over the top .. especially in big time events. however, i still believe he is one of the most gifted players out there at the moment.

    Yes agree!! Extremely too flashly and dont have the focusing during the game.....
    All their opposition knows already his style and easy for the opponents to kill the shuttle....
    Very upset for all their supporters and his partner being drag into his style also.....

    They have to change!!! if not MD titles for them will slips away......
    BUT we the Malaysian citizen still have some more trust on them!!

    maybe its just me but TBH is kinda flashy too.
    i mean during AE2011 vs MB & CM, he was like all over the place...in one rally, he acted like the shuttle hit him in the face and almost rolled off the court lol funny guy

    KKK isn't really VERY flashy, he just relies on high-risk shots to earn them points which can be suicidal on his bad day.

    I think KKK's style has something to do with his coach Rexy, a former player known for his flamboyant style.

    Rexy a creative player himself allows some lee-way on some of KKK's 'pattern' flashy play.

    Rexy may have created a 'pattern-king' in his pupil. :D

    Are you talking about KKK alone or KKK + TBH?

    TBH is OK

    .
    Actually @ 1:40, TBH moved away as fast as he could, so that the shuttlecock won't hit his face.

    It was the quick shift of his balance that caused him to move out of control to the side of the court. And when the shuttlecock went out, he expressed great satisfaction and happiness.

    TBH is OK; KKK is flashy. ;););)
