    I play like: LYD (not as well goes without saying throughout this thread).
    I want to play like: LD - who doesn't!
    My MD partner plays like: KSR - incredible speed but not so reliable :p
    Would most like to play with: JJS! Ma or kim ha na for xd.

    I saw a hint of CAI Yun bouncing at the net in a recent [MENTION=64484]j4ckie[/MENTION] video.

    Huh? Who bounced? I don't recall that :D
    That said, playing with FHF would be a blast - wicked fast, thunders down anything high.....and also not too shabby in defense and net play. Of course he'd be a bit pissed off about my contribution, I reckon :D
    Playing like CY (or LYD) would be the dream. But we're very different (they're super quick and athletic), I think Mogensen/Eriksen are more in my range, style-wise. And isn't that just a little sad :D
    Both look slightly awkward or at least less elegant than most comparable players in their movement, but are somehow able to compete with them, placing the shuttle well and being good in the service situation....I certainly don't aspire to play the 3-5 shot kinda game, but it definitely suits me more than trying to thunder down smashes from the back all day.

    I play singles games like: WYH (I know shes a girl), often trying to overpower the opponent and not much strategy (which isn't something to brag about).
    I want to play like: Peter Gade (not the best, but with style!)
    My doubles like: Any net player
    I want to play like: Hiroyuki Endo. This guy is crazy on the court, not only moving really fast but is able to force the game to a faster pace and control it.
    My doubles partner like: JJS, specializing in smashes.
    Would love to play with: FHF. Smashes, defense, and control. What more can you ask for?

    I've been watching some Chou Tien Chen recently. We play some similar shots/style. Maybe I should put mx90 back on my wishlist as he uses it..?
