    Very true. I can only heard how Liem Swie King and Rudy Hartono also had the same charm and persona, but Im lucky to see TH in my life time.

    Taufik Commented in Japan Open that he could not control the shuttles.. Sounds to me like he was using the Arc-Z :p

    I think he has been tricked by Yonex marketing department to use a racket with poor control :-D

    Beats me why they can't allow players of that calibre to use what the players want. TH would probably still opt for a 700 or 900T if he had his way, I guess. And if YY can't deliver what their "Advisory Staff" are asking for, then maybe they should just take a step back and figure out a better way to please the masses and the "Advisory Staff."

    This way, it's YY who would be responsible for unsatisfactory performance and the player's possible fall in rankings as a result of foisting/forcing an incompatible racquet on the player...

    just my blurry thoughts.

    From a WC finalist one moment ago to SS 1st round loser now. I did not watch the JPN match but something im sure of is that he was a different TH in JPN and in FRN, and I really cant explain why, it just does not make sense. I want to know if TH really wants to play SS anymore, or is it something prevented him doing so? Maybe stamina, motivation/psycological, or something else.

    Oh did he....?? There is a myth (i dont know if we can believe this or not) saying that for top a MS player once they get married or have children they will go down the hill in terms of baddy medals. Is it true???

    Its not myth, just some factor(s)
    Because most of them who already married would focus more on their family then their career
    Unlike who not getting marriage yet, they would switch partner everyday -.-

    not true for every married men.

    once you are married you can be busy with only her

    once you are not married you could be very3x busy with many hers

    as for taufik maybe its a change of life style, more obligations and ties..

    In the 60s and 70s, a person fooling around is called a stud. Today, we call them fools...Ohhhhh, that is dangerous;)

    With the withdrawal of PHG due to injury, I just hope that TH wins his first MS SS title by winning the Denmark Super Series 2010 tournament. This first SS win is overdue for player of his calibre and I just wish him all the best. Go for it TH.
