    They seem to have been in great form lately but they did take time before reaching the top (they are already 25 and 24).
    Anyway, only time will tell if they are the new top pair, or if younger (indo?) pairs will overtake them...
    What is sure is that they are very skillful! :cool:

    don't think they will be as dominant as ricky/rexy.

    BTW do u think rexy kept that pair at the top, ricky was very good but i don't think he was as good as rexy who was the true genius of the duo.

    I think in doubles you need a balance, two genius' dont make a top pair.

    Take Sigit and Trikush, and tony and halim Sigit/tri were both genius's ion their own, but when together ABC2004 apart, they were not spectacular. Sigit with candra however, where candra is the more, how can I say, "subtle" player, and they are a great partnership. Likwise tony/halim, halim is more "subtle" and tony was more of a play maker.

    Ditto Kim/Ha, Lee/Yoo

    I don't know any double teams before Park Joo Bong/anybody. But I think Ricky/Rexy are the best. I think at their peak, Ricky/Rexy can beat Park Joo Bong/anybody and Kim/Ha. The only team I think can give Ricky/Rexy a good game is Park Joo Bong/Kim Dong Moon.

    I think one exception is Park Joo Bong/Kim Dong Moon. I watched they play once on dvd, and they were flawless.

    ya alven and luluk are a frightening pair.ive only watch them play twice but its enough to see that they are extremely quick to attack the shuttle thats 1 of their key winning factor.

    Agreed. They are flair players, but with great thought and hard work as well-Something for example sigit may not have.

    No, it's Kim Dong Moon who just retired after this year's olympic. They were playing Antonious/Kantono, and obviously 1 level higher. I don't remember Rexy/Ricky ever dominated Antonious/Kantono like that.

    Watch out for Candra's serve. It's rather fast too.

    And have anyone noticed that Luluk always serve to the sides ? I really wonder why because I don't see other players serving in this way everytime when they serve low.

    I think that Alven and Luluk, despite their height, they could still jump sky high and also have fast reactions at the net. And their defence is superb.
