    Just hoping that 'the day' is near, since our former hero (you-know-who) is hopeless now.:eek:

    INA always will hv good players.

    But to find some one as good as TH, thats a bit hard.

    For me, TH is a genius in badminton world.

    I also expect Simon's second SS finals in 2 weeks tomorrow... A Simon vs. Bao finals, perhaps... What will surely happen is that Simon will get a lot of ranking points due to his consistent performances of the past 2 weeks...

    U mean 'si tukang ngambek'? Yeah we do need someone who will replace him, since he seems not into badminton again... Well, at least he's not as on fire as couple of years before...

    I believe Simon will be a #1 player in Indonesia one day if PBSI give him more chance to play in high level tournaments... He's (in my opinion) the only Indo MS player that played well in TC... Hopefully he'll do great things for Indo Badminton in the future...

    Watch out for Simon!
    He's still young and promising. :D

    and being 2nd for two Badminton Opens in a row, that's quite good already.

    but if you look at the draw he got in the 2 previous tournaments, he didn't really met opponents that could challenge him. but i seriously hope he will do better in the future since it seems he is the only one who can replace either taufik or sony.

    Hmm, yes quite true.
    But he has that raw talent in him, I suppose.
    He better train harder! :D

    Dont forget he still young. Compare with mas players with same age with him, he is definately better.

    To replace Taufik, i dont think so.

    Taufik is Unique.:D:D
