Discussion in 'Singapore Open / Indonesia Open 2009' started by xymaerts, Jun 11, 2009.
I did not EXPECT this !!!!!!!!!!!! My heart had broken
u obviously haven't been following badminton long enough to think this is impossible....
He is the hottest Vietnamese badminton player.
He received new sponsor by Victor from this tournament and he is trying to show that he deserve that ^^
Nguyễn Tiến Minh, the No1 player of Vietnambadminton!!! Thats our pride.
Last year he defeat Chen Yu in Singapore Open...and then Peter Gade beat him in QF..
He's going to name his name on top 10 after this tournament, and then you'll know who he is exactly.
who is he??? he is the player that beat lee chong wei today... proud of him...
Who is Nguyen Tien Minh, you ask?
He is the one that just kicked the crap out of the so-called world #1 Lee Chong Wei.
However, I have a feeling that is some sort of strategy so LCW can focus on the INA tournament and prepare for Lin Dan instead.
LCW may pull out from INA Open....
Nguyen is known as giant killer, Vietnam's best MS.
....whoops,now got another one, India's Anup just beat uncle PG
Dont think it's strategy of LCW to prepare for LD though, if like that, PG also strategise together, save energy to prepare for INA, haha.
Thien Minh is one of good player...last year during INA Open, Bao almost lost to him..
Now he is training in Singapore...
XYMAERTS, I also love Lee Chong Wei but I am happy with Tien Minh Nguyen. He is the proud of my nation.
He is the best player in Viet Nam!
you forgot, LCW already said he's not in a good form...
The only loser who comes up with excuses before the tournament even begins.
The advantage of it:
1. If win... I am so good that I can win even if I am not in form
2. If loss... don't blame me, because I told you so.
i dont believe kicking someone while he's down, only cowards do.
what's the reason.....becoz of this defeat...???
We love Chong Wei's style because his style is academic, exemplary, sharp and terribly talented.
The Vietnamese badminton system is not very well organised so that some non-common talents like Tien Minh have bolted from the blue and his style is undefinable but terribly efficient.
He usually had very good 3-set matches against top players like LIN Dan, Peter GADE, BAO Chun Lai...
Once, Taufik fell into the trap and lost the match.
But we think his present success over Chong Wei came from the recent contract with Victor and surely from his training with the Singaporian Badminton team during the last weeks before the tournament.
Please tell us what you would say if you are not in good form and someone asks you regarding an upcoming tournament?
This is from wikipedia:
"Introduced to badminton by his father at the early age of 10, Nguyen Tien Minh was immediately captivated by the sport and its graceful movements. The interest soon developed into a passion which led to Nguyen's crucial decision in 2001 when the athlete was 18 years old: to take on the path of becoming a professional badminton player instead of carrying on his education as his family wished. The young man's determination soon demonstrated its fruitful aspects when Nguyen was recruited into the national team in the same year. However, Nguyen's career did not become well known nation-wide until 2002 when he, at the age of 19, victoriously defeated the long time national champion, Phu Cuong Nguyen, and seized the gold medal for the men single category.
Nevertheless, despite all of Nguyen's painstaking endearment and awe-inspiring progress, the badminton player was receiving a salary of less than 150 US dollars a month, as most Vietnamese athletes were at the time. Now, after 9 years of contributing to the nation's sport team, while his ranking has been progressing significantly and rapidly, Nguyen's income has only been increased by around 50 dollars! This fact further contributes to the wonder of Nguyen's never ceasing improvement and to the spectacle of his flaming spirit, considering the premium and professional conditions the world's top players are being trained in. These athletes, with incomes much higher than that of Nguyen's, normally have specially assigned specialists to look after their every aspect, such as diet, injuries, endurance training, etc., not to mention all the top ranking sporting facilities provided for by the government. On the other side of the scale, Nguyen has been trained in an environment with nothing but poor equipments and has to rely mostly on his family's financial support, the cherished effort of his few coaches, and the quiet contribution of his team mates. The underdeveloped sporting system of Vietnam does not falter the athlete; his unwavering spirit is impenetrable against all the odds he has to face. Now, at the age of 26, Nguyen Tien Minh currently ranks 15th worldwide and still goes on striking generations of badminton lovers around the globe with not only awe but also inspirations. There is no doubt that the athlete will even further improve his ranking in the future, as he is portrayed by a common description in his home country, "the athlete with a herculean progress"."
Then I guess CL is the one that just kicked the crap out of the so-called "real world No.1" LD?
It seems some people would like to explain everything by conspiracy so that they can argue that LD is invincible.
