    The SIN girls also won the GD U19 title where Liang Yun, who also played Singles, partnered Sari Citra Purri Dewi to beat their Thai opponents.

    In total, SIN won 3 of the 4 U19 titles. The BS U19 was an all-MAS affair.

    Uncle Loh, if I remember right, after this U15 BD match (lasting 55 mins) now showing on Starhub ch 201/112 ,a 3-setter won by the MAS boys (which should end around 2.30 am), comes the U19 GS Final between Yeo Jiamin and Liang Yun, a 30-min match. Stand by.

    I believe Yeo Jia Min is representing the Singapore junior squad and Liang Yun is from China and play for Zhang Qingsong's club (can't remember the name of the club).

    I think its great to see a local player like Yeo Jia Min doing so well and hopefully inspire other Singaporean players.

    I look forward to the day we stop relying on foreign imports to win titles.

    Thanks, I woke up at around 2.15 am to watch the BD won by the Malaysians.

    Then I got a chance to see Yeo JM in her win against Liang Yun. I am impressed by Yeo, who is in good physical condition and is certainly more attack oriented than GJ.

    I hope she will further develop in her soft skills as well and improve all round. What a gem for Singapore!

    I also look forward to having our own local-born team, though it may take some time.

    In a way our strategy of giving the foreign talents a chance to become Singaporeans has met with some success as our locals have become more interested and improved on their game through interaction with the foreign talents. We must not forget that the FTs are making their contributions as well and the best thing to happen is when they become our own citizens.

    Some of our past FTs who have become Singaporeans are continuing to contribute by becoming coaches to our young badminton aspirants. Their children will become local-born, just like our forefathers' children who came ahead of us from China, India, Indonesia and elsewhere, for a better life.

    So I think we should not be too hard on our FTs but try to understand them and give them credit for carrying the Singapore flag in international competitions and trying their best to win accolades for Singapore. Their children will be our children in due course.

    i heard that sim fong hau from MAS is a good talent.

    Surya Purnama Sidi from INA is a unique talent. great stroke, and beautiful play.
    his development is quite stuck in the last 3 years (yes, 3 years) because of his attitude.
    Djarum fired him, then he moved to mutiara, and mutiara fired him too.
    i hope PB Exist can nurture him well. luckily, he is only 14 yo.

    Is he only 14 years old? :eek: I was very impressed with his intelligent gameplay. He was very relaxed and always smiling during his matches.

    yes, he is only 14. born 99.
    he won U-13 in INA Circuit when he is only 10 yo. and back then, he came from a very small club.
    Djarum recruited him through selection, everyone impressed. but his attitude is quite poor.
    you can guess how bad his attitude, when a club like djarum fired a 12 yo boy. movin' to another big club, mutiara (currently one of the best in INA in producing quality BS U19, U17 and U15), only to be fired again.

    if only his behaviour is better, i think he should have been very good.
