    Axiata cup loss was due to ahsan's back injury.. and lack of training time i think.. due to his marriage..

    thanks for all your explanation, anyhow, Axiata cup is a team event, the team manager should have picked the best MD for the final.

    I knew Ahsan/Setiawan withdrew after the 1 set loss (12-21). I think it's because the rest match were meaningless. By winning 1 game from Bao CL/Zheng B against Ahsan/Setiawan, Asia team got enough points to win. That's the real reason, but on paper, they have to pick some other legitimate reasons like injuries.

    If the reason were injury and marriage, the INA team would have picked another MD.

    Wow... both Setiawan and Ahsan, especially Ahsan, were on fire at INA Open. They played fast, flat, and efficiently.

    I'm particularly impressed by Ahsan's smashing, as if his life depended on it... in slow mo replays, he can be seen putting his whole body and soul into the smash. His fore and mid court play wa impeccable, and his defence was amazing. Both game points in yesterday's finals were from his counter attack smash returns.

    This pair is gonna be interesting to follow, if they keep up the consistency, they can be no. 1.

    Worth to mention, he's using Arc FB to create smashes with 270km/h!

    dont all get so hyped up with the racquet, its probably just because he has a panhandle grip and strings at 26 lbs

    @blableblibloblu
    Don't forget about the Time Advantage too of such an advanced grip technique.

    he probably wont be able to generate the same head speed and agility..

    i watched the game twice just to see how the indons played, ahsan appeared to have benefitted from a very speedy and occasionally less predictable return.

    on the VTZF.. LCW's been hitting 250-270 anyway.. i wouldnt think ahsan is any stronger than lcw

    I'm absolutely not a friend of this racket. But it's interesting that he can such fast smashes while holding almost no racket weight.
    The low weight was pretty sure supporting his fast net game as well.

    But let's put Ahsan aside. It's really worth to mention that Setiawan shows really really no emotions during the game. His emotions after the win were also rather calm... This is really special.

    It is no doubt. Hendra is well known for his calmness and a great shuttle placer. Look at Beijing Olympic 2008 Final, he looks really calm. I love his shuttle placement a lot. He is gifted in this area, i would say.

    yea i'm surprised they won this INA open this time... they beat Cai/Fu in the semis as well... totally unexpected.... not sure if they qualified for the WC or can repeat the same success next month in the world championships.... but still a very good job from this pair beating Lee Yong Dae in the final today....

    Ahsan/Hendra has beaten LYD/KSH at MAS Open 2013 in straight set too. Ahsan/Hendra set strategy so well. They put pressure to KSH and force him to make errors, when the opportunity exist and the shuttle is an easy meat, they sometimes smashed shuttle to LYD instead. Since KSH looks LYD as his senior on court, the inability of LYD returning smashes will put KSH under even more pressure, and that is the end of the match.

    If you re-watch the 2 matches, the INA pair played brilliantly and their strategies were spot on. Ko, in particular, was the weak link in this partnership. Lee could not even unleash his net prowess.

    Has this pair taken on Liu/Qiu before? Now that would be an interesting match!

    Edit: I see they played in the SF of AE2013. Hmmm ... wonder what happened to them then as they lost to the eventual AE winners.
