    No... it was not KKK that made the difference. The "REAL" difference was Lungaard whom missed numerous serves or had to flick serve just to avoid service mistakes. Eriksen just couldn't say the above, so might as well said something else instead of blaming his partner.

    Let's turn this into a POLL! :D

    You only get one choice.

    I haven't voted yet. Tough to decide

    well, if you're going to bring Sir Park into this, then he's definitely got my vote. let's not talk about best frontman, he's the best doubles player ever, full stop. well, in my book at least.

    this will be interesting, i wonder how many forumers will vote with their hearts rather than their heads though.

    I think we need a better definite regarding "best". Are we talking about "best as individual skill", or "best contribution to a team victory"?

    If individual skill, Sigit that's it. However, sometimes he tends to over do it a bit, therefore, Tony is more consistent and gurantee you a W. ;)

    Thread title is a bit vague, IMO..

    ..as to "All-time"?? "Now"?? or "10-20 yrs ago"??:confused:..But i think, if we're to choose one category to determine "Who's the best", then it has got to do with the accomplishments/major titles won etc.:cool:

    i think KDM is not the front man
    his style of play with his pair HTK is not using front play..or more i can say they rotate a lot in their play.

    Man, although Cai Yun is probably my FAVORITE front man, I had to pick Tony Gunawan, as he, in my opinion, is the best front player.

    Kim Moonsoo?

    How come Kim Moonsoo is in the poll? Is it a typo for KDM? :D

    It's really a hard pick between Tony and Rexy. I decided to pick Rexy. :cool: He made hard things look natural and easy.

    Tony was the ultimate. KKK is getting better but not as good as Tony when he was at his prime.
