    So LXR should have no problem advancing to the Final and securing her place whether she wins or loses in the final of the India Open.

    It will be very difficult for the opponents to defeat her because of her sudden peak recently and it will take a lot of effort to spot her weaknesses..

    I cant sense any weakness in her defence or strokes. Her shots and deception at the back of the court are quite scary...you cant predict where she is going to place it; WYH for instance was tricked several times by the cross court placement....

    Kim Sa Rang and Kim Ki Jung have been very impressive throughout this tourney... beating everyone in 2 straight games and made it seem so easy!

    The Korean team have taught them well. Their rotation, speed and defence is what made them a great doubles combination and upholding Korea's great reputation in mens doubles. Both of them are very good at intercepting at the front, which made a big difference. Back player thunders the smashes, front player finishes it off. When on the defence, very steady and looking to counter every shot to get back the attack.

    Just when we thought JJS/LYD was good, then there's KSH/YYS and now KSR/KKJ! Definitely will be even more difficult for China now that they have 3 viable pairs to look out for. Not to mention Shin Baek Choel, another talented player waiting beneath the shadows

    Again as usual China once again exposes their weakness in MD department, producing sub-standard pairs that couldn't even beat player outside the top 10 bracket..

    Is Fu/Cai the only MD pair China can produce out of 5 billion population ? What a joke....

    All the "punishment" will not work because there will be difficulty in proving and the "punishment" for not following team order is even worse.

    I think the way is to make all players professional. First, BWF has to change the way players register for competition. No more through the country association. Everyone can register on their own to BWF.

    And prize money should be given directly to players.

    After that BWF can warn to give temporary ban or punishment to players so players who choose to follow their boss orders risk getting the punishment.

    Lin Dan wouldn't care if BWF deducts 10,000 points from his WR points. He could still play in the Olympics. But if BWF were to deduct just 2,000 points from CJ's world ranking points. That would be very interesting. Peter Gade would overtake CJ in ranking.

    In a sense, just like most of us, the Chinese fans like to see foreign opposition in fierce competition and to cheer compatriots on to win!

    They were already up and coming in 2011. First tournament together was Korean PSS and I happened to see their first round match and was immediately impressed (by their speed and defense). But Kim Sa Rang failed to make the national selection at the trials later/ was deemed not good enough/ kicked out (wouldn't be a surprise with that smug grin he has ), and they were split until rejoined in December of 2011 ...
    In any case, glad to see they added some hardware

    It was a delight to watch Kim/Kim throughout this tournament!! The way they play looks so easy, esp. defence, they are quick, hunting the net...
    ANd they beat quite a few pairs which are rankend higher.
    Ofc the big guns didnīt play, but iīm looking forward to see how they handle pairs like boe/mogensen, cai/fu.
    Koreanīs MD are so spectacular imo, nice to have a third MD pair who could make their way to the top 10.

    That was just your opinion

    and couldn't be something that can be measured

    like a thermometer in Celsius or Fahrenheit.

    If it can be measured that way,

    I would say its a freezing cold statement

    Of course I am just expressing my opinion and i have sticked it way before he moved to Japan to become the head coach.

    When he took up the job to coach the Malaysian doubles pairs, Choong Tan Foo/Lee Wan Wah and Chew/Chan's h2h record against the elite South Korean pairs have never improved. Especially Choong/Tan vs Lee Dong Soo/Yoo Yong Sung, they have been able to only beat them once in out of i dont know 5/6 meetings in their careers. So I was beginning to wonder if Park Joo Bong came to Malaysia with the intention to bring the best out of the pairs.

    My suspect grew even stronger when he was in Japan. His Japanese charges have never succeed in overcoming their Korean counterparts in any discipline since 2007. 5 years it has been, and none of the Japanese players are able to do well especially against Korea. Maybe Kenichi Tago but I checked his head to head record against Koreans have not been that pleasant.

    It's not wrong for me to suspect and question Park Joo Bong's commitment as coach. Sure he has introduced some elements to improve their game but at some point it feels like he is limiting their progress based on the knowledge he is sharing. I am surprised that Japanese coaching side who have too respectful and overwhelmed of his presence and touch; failed to see this through him and measured his actual commitment to actually transform Japan as a powerhouse that could hold their own against Korea especially. A Japanese with a right winger mindset would definitely shed some light onto this and bring up a case against Park Joo Bong. Is he putting his ethnic loyalty above his commitment to coaching? Look at the Japanese past results, there have been little or zero success in their performance against the powerhouse Korea since he took office, is there a hidden agenda as suspected by the right winger or simply the Japanese players are still inferior in terms of skills to the Koreans. I do not buy it...

    Just my 2 cents...i dont trust him since he coached Malaysia from the beginning.

    Again It's just my opinion.....but that were true, I say he should be branded as the biggest disgrace to badminton....far worse than the hot-headed dictator Li Yongbo...at least Li Yongbo will not pretend and he is only thinking China as the best team there is, he won't do anything to make sure other nations caught up with China.

    I have to salute Rexy Mainaky, one of the best coaches i have ever seen who have used his touch and commitment to bring the best out of his charges and that is evident; no matter where they are from...that's called true dedication and passion
