Just wathced Taufik-Ng game. Taufik seems to be playing half-heartedly, doing tests on all kinds of shots. What surprises me is his smashes. I don't think Taufik was a one-smash-get-a-point guy. But in this game Ng seems just unable to return almost all of Taufik's big smashes, and the reason seems to be they are just too fast for Ng. Indeed, many smashes from Taufik are above 290km/h. I remember last year's WC, his smashes were mostly between 250 and 270. What happened? a faster shuttlecock or a stronger Taufik? If it's the former, FHF should reach 350km or something. How could anyone defense then?
