Vote for Tony at his prime
Heartily agree with this comparison between Tony and KKK.
where's the best backman poll??
i voted for park joo bong.
i think backman is not as significant as the frontman in men's doubles. anyone with a killer steep smash placed at the right spot will be a good backman. it does not involve a lot of skill or creativity.
ah, but surely there must be some who have stood out more than others.
besides, i don't think it's fair to have one thread and not another!
Then i would vote for TBH for his sideline smash. FHF for his powerful smash. Kiddo for his continous smash!
And I AGREE with you.
i like tony gunawan. He is best frontman in Men's Doubles.
i think i want to change my view about backman. i think, in a way, the backman also setups the frontman. A good backman knows when to smash, when to drop, who to smash, where to smash, how hard to smash, how flat to smash and etc.
I think Lundgard is very good at this. Eventhough he does not have the most powerful or fanciful smash, his smash often forces weak return and this setups JE with those killing chances.
i recomend candra wijaya for the backman
he do smash all the time
if he get 19 chance of smash >>he will surely do it for 20 smash
candra n tony was good pair.they completed ,fill, serve each other
Back On Track, Please
The 'backman' can wait a while...
...this thread is about the player in front
Hendra Setiawan is a good 'FrontMan' but not the best. Recent performance that brought much attention to him I believe is due to be his overall court performance and increased potency from the back.
I can't understand why is Park Joo Bong on the Poll List. Kim Moon Soo's a Real Forgoten Front Man hero of the pair. Prolly everyone remembers it as 2 Park Joo Bongs playing together winning all those titles.
Gretest Front Player of all time
Interesting topic for discussion...fyi, in recent years, after reading the comments from past greats like Rudy Hartono, Christian Hadinata, Han Jian, Liem Swie King, Razif Sidek, Jalani Sidek and even Kim Dong Moon himself...... they all regard Park Joo Bong as the greatest ever. I know most of you may not agree, but i think the past greats have a point there.....just my two cents worth.
Enjoy the discussion.
Cai Yun ahead of Park JB, Li Yongbo, Sigit and Rexy.
Says a lot, doesn't it?
If I'm not wrong, there's no 'front-back' in that partnership as they were really good in both? Either way, they were the greatest IMO.
Perhaps someone might have the interest to open a 'Best backman in Men's Doubles' with the mods helping with a poll as well???
I'm sure it will be a great hit
First, let the names flow (in another thread, of course).
And then we could look at a poll
Yes, I meant to say 'another thread'
The Poll forgot to add Kim Dong Moon to the list. He's as good as Tony setting up for his partner. Ha Tai Kwon gets to put his powerful smash to good effect thanks to Kim's setups.
