    SWH's court coverage is very good, his military training keeps him in tip-top condition, I think.

    now Son Wan Ho can make his way up the ranking. He certainly deserves to be in the top 10. Military service held him back, but not for long, cos he's back with vengeance.

    Shon Wan Ho is back, for good. He moves fast and effortlessly, is rarely caught receiving the shuttle late; NTM is just as fit but not as quick.

    At the crucial points, from 19-18 in G3, SWH stepped up the pace and went on sudden attacks whereas NTM was business as usual and wanted to rally unto death and was caught short. Otherwise not much separated the two.

    Sorry, I jumped the gun, not realizing the MD is not an all-KOR final. But I think the KOR have the edge.

    Agree, he's the best successor of Lee Hyun-il. First title for Son Wan-ho after military service, his successful to win title here will upgrade WR, from 233 to 124 next week.

    Well, clean sweep in the making as Kim KJ/Kim SR took first game easily 21-11 against home pair Lee SM/Tsai CH.

    Strong Korean team here!!
    They have many worldclass players:
    WD: 3 pairs at least
    WS: JSH
    MD: 3 pairs
    MS: SWH
    MX: 4 pairs
    Let´s see if they can win major titles at bigger events as well ;)
    Good chances in the adidas China Masters next week as a few top players will be missed.

    Koreans send their best players to tournaments where CHN and INA best players do not participate.

    The Koreans were just great sweeping all the five titles contested even though their number one men's doubles pair failed to shine. Shon Wan Ho created the upset of the finals by beating Nguyen Tien Minh and he will be a force to be reckoned with in future tournaments. NTM had a tough match in the SF and this could also be a factor in his loss
