    i agree with you,kemana. He is pretty good and have a good talent. I think he should change his coach like training with taufik coach, mulyo handoyo!!!!![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] :) :) :) :) :)

    actually i was a little worried about simon's height too, but he is very agile(misspelled?), hopefully that will make up for his height;)

    He already done that!!! He is no longer coached by Joko Supriyanto, he shared Mulyo with Taufik after Indonesia Open I guess... Dunno the reason why... BTW, I think that Simon is really good, just his mental isn't strong enough... He made lots of unforced errors against Boonsak and Lee Cheol Ho (1st game only) last Indo Open... His shots are powerful and his footwork isn't bad either... I also heard that as a player, Simon is really discipline from the begining until now...

    Is Ardy really 171cm?

    Ong Ewe Hock must be shorter than that and Lee Chong Wei can't really be much taller.

    for his height, is better for him to play doubles..
    is not that he cant win in single but it take him double the effort in order to win points compare to taller player..
    is Hard but not impposible...

    Guys, Simon is 175... That's quite tall you know.. Ardy's onnly 171.. Can't say that Simon's short.. And, he has since grow.. At the recent Swiss Open 2007, he beat Chen Yu, and won Lin Dan one match before LD WO (27-25), but he succumbs to Chen Jin.. That's a great achievement, he's the runner-up of SO.. ^_^
