    i suspect its his mental state thats are unstable and in a bad mood after the umpiree let chen jin's fault net kill (definetely a fault, look at the replay if you dont believe) to be a point. also there is an evident lack of stamina in the 3rd set. overall, at 1st and 2nd, Simon really brave to play some tight spinning net shot and crosscourt backhandside smash

    simon was leading towards the end of 2nd set and he rush a lot of shots...

    if he had been patience like he did during the 1st game and early part of 2nd game... I think he would have won...

    IMO, Simon is not typically a champ player, although his skill is very good but he has mentally problem :)

    I think he can do a lot better if his fitness improves.
    His skills is very good already

    ..erm, he could (because of his age), but imo, i think he's reached his peak..partly of his inconsistent game tactic..he lost to Sho Sasaki in the TC Semis Rd. event>>>my goodness!!..

    Simon needs to improve his fitness, as well as having winning spirit bigger than his opponent.
    At TC Final, IMO he lost to CJ mainly due to lack of winning spirit, after the referee did not put CJ on foul.

    ..not only at the TC Final...did you notice his loss vs. Sho Sasaki in the TC Semis??..even Hau-ge shifted from his regular VIP seat to one far away from the action after Simon lost..:eek:;)

    Who is Hau-ge?:D :D :D
    Oh yeah, his lost to Sho Sasaki at TC semi's, in my opinion he lacks of patience and i feel that he can't match well the pace of sho sasaki. Furthermore sho sasaki is better in smash's power.
    what do you think?
    The lost of Simon against sho sasaki is indeed should not happen. Given the pressure is on sho sasaki since INA leads 2-0 already.

    As expected, Simon Santoso won the 2010 Chinese Taipei MS title beating Shon Wan Ho convincingly, 21-14, 21-11, in 39 minutes.
    With this win, I think SS is the the best INA men's singles player and is equal in skills to CJ and BCL.
    He would be a tad lower than LD and LCW.
    I hopes SS continues to do well and bag more titles.

    :):):)
