    Congratulation Daren, do work hard to keep it up :D
    It has been a long while since a Malaysian other than LCW to win a superseries MS. Last being Hafiz Hashim in 2003 AE if I'm not wrong?

    Super Series started in 2007, so he is really the only other MS player who has won Super Series.

    List of Malaysians who have won Super Series:
    Lee Chong Wei (MS)
    Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong (MD)
    Wong Mew Choo (WS)
    Chin Eei Hui/Wong Pei Tty (WD)
    Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari/Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif (MD)
    Chan Peng Soon/Goh Liu Ying (XD)
    Liew Daren (MS)

    Like I said before, Darren has the 'goods' to deliver but it's just that there seems to be something else holding him back for instance, 'the hunger to win'. I really glad that another 'yellow shirt' player besides LCW got to the podium and although it's only the French Open winner, I am still glad. Good to know even something good can come out of 'directionless management'. However, no time to bask in your glory. Continue back training with LCW more at home to hone your skills. I especially like his crosscourt overhead smashes and also crosscourt overhead lobs that look like shooting lobs that are seldom used nowadays. :D

    On the other hand, Axelsen plays better this time than when he is against LCW. Maybe he is not so much in awe of unheralded Darren? His game has more 'umph' when he plays his normal game.

    Footnote: Does anyone notice that the final game umpire was a splitting image of Axelsen? And BCers have to carefully put Darren's initials as DL instead of LD:D.

    Pakito, Daren's official name Liew Daren. Its also on his Facebook and all official documents. Dunno why his name is different from other Msian chinese.

    On another BCer comment on English, Daren can understand English. His facebook updates are mostly in English. Perhaps he found it hard to understand the accent of the French interviewer, I know I do.

    his name is liew daren
    that's insulting if he need to change his name to dl instead of ld because of someone.

    I think it's the misunderstanding that they interpret all Malaysian chinese will be called by their surnames first and hence the later part will be their official names ie lee and then chong wei, hence, liew and then daren. However no one calls Gade Peter.:D

    As for the french interviewer, what was his question exactly?:confused: He was just making a statement that this is the 1st time Daren won at the French Open. So?

    Hiyaa, just call him Daren, wouldnt mistaken . He has a bro or relative named Liew Gavin, same odd name format

    And yes, Daren's English is better than Datuk and some of the other Msian players. He can straight answer in English, LCW,TBH will answer in malay. I think better than LCW but not as good as KKK

    There is no rule as to how you want to name your kids in Malaysia...just different from the traditional chinese naming system

    anyway i think we need to stop showing too much attention on him.... the reason being if there is so much attention, it also means so much distraction to him... afterall he only won once (which also happen to be his first semi final and final as well, in a SSgame), not to mention the lack of all top 5 players(simon withdrawn in the first round)
