speaking about MD(means during match), i would have to agree with the current poll result
waw FHF got more than half of the vote, that says it all
Why so many indonesian in the nomination?
because Indonesia is (or was) the Men Double power house
i vote for Markis Kido.. because there is a lot of jumping involves.
actually, i don't think he can smash very steep without jumping...
The Indonesians are strongest in the MD event for many, many years
Because the Indonesians are strongest in the MD event for many, many years.
i think they were the strongest for many many years
right now the chinese pair seems to be on top of their form
followed by malaysian pairs and the korean pairs
Now Indonesian MD pairs are not as good as few years back.
Now China, Korea and Malaysia is better.
Its not only in MS but in baddy as general, in fact its in the whole sports in general. I hope the fortune will turn in the next few yrs, otherwise we'll be called the sleeping Garuda
Just like West Indies cricket....
although West indies have deteriorated seemingly beyond return... since 1995... that's 15 years....
before that they dominated cricket to amazing heights especially in the 70's-80's
Sleeping Garuda (Indonesia) will not be a match for Awakening Dragon (China). And tempe goreng is nothing compare to ginseng, kimchi and kombucha (Korea) hahaha LOL
lol thats a good one. But Garuda is a local terminology, internationally its should be called Phoenix the equivalent of the Dragon. And tempe (pressed soy bean) although may sound humble has more nutritions (that can prevent heart deseases) than kimchi which is merely just a veg. INA tempe should be at least equal to CHN tofu
And you can have a Garuda tatoo like this:
Fu Haifeng has the most effective smash currently, and TBH also puts it to good use and is effective in Commonwealth but it isn't penetrating enough for top pairs sometimes.
One European I think of as a great smasher is Simon Archer from England, he may not be a good all round player but he definitely had a good smash, once he held the fastest smashing speed record.
4 me, jung jae sung, boon heong and fu haifeng are the best, but dont 4get to euro players like thomas lund and nathan robertson..
One more player..Tony Gunawan stands out, his smashes may not be the fastest but accurate and angled foe maximum impact
Still voted TBH for country support though Biased me
Just watched the old video of Sigit, he was a lot more powerful back then
