    Default Women's Doubles Final ......

    ..... was pretty much a repeat of the, err, 2012 Olympic final.

    With political tensions running high between both countries, it was China vs Japan again, but with a new Japanese combination against half of the Olympic Champion pair partnering China's best looking young prospect ..... . Yup, we cannot underestimate the importance of having pretty and cute girls on tour ...... wherever they come from.

    The way this Japanese combination play is a refreshing change .... they don't depend too much on defence as traditional Japanese pairs do. Instead, they do take a lot of initiative. Only problem is, the Japanese wand doesn't have as much potency or accuracy ...... well not yet, anyway.

    And so ......

    Good news.

    They should give the umpire a bigger screen though. Maybe the service judge should also get a screen for a second opinion or consultation.

    A process will be implemented and a trial run is scheduled to be run on Surdiman cup this year at the same venue...

    Default Men's Doubles Final .....

    Two Olympic Gold Medallists clashed their racquets in anger in this tie. The 2008 Men's Doubles Champion Hendra Setiawan leads his younger partner Mohd Ahsan, in an assault at the Korean juggernault, marshalled by the 2008 Mixed Doubles Master Lee Yong Dae and his new kungfu apprentice, Ko Sung Hyun.

    In the end, the Indonesians forced the game at a snail's pace (by Korean standards) to win convincingly in two games ...... thus adding more misery to former All-England-winning MD Coach Kang Kyung Jin ......

    yes, its the same guy.. they are from a group called the famemas malaysia supporter club.. Meanwhile, there's also 3 or 4 INA supporters in the final days.. one of the supporter is a 'seasoned campaigner' which will present in every year Mas Open. In the 1st and 2nd round you can clearly heard his shouting and thumping.. But towards the Quarter, semi and final perhaps he's still shouting loudly but nowhere can be heard..

    Seems like he is enjoying his life very well... no stress..

    Maybe if they sell it, they think they won't have sufficient shuttlecocks for the tournament?

    I was seating in a position which can see clearly the technical officials and the media.. And actually BWF is not lying.. they are actually implementing a test on the line calls... There's a laptop with clear baseline footage on the screen which I believe they are testing it.. Now i know why BWF said they are doing the test behind the scene.. And many are unaware including the player

    -Now this, is the VIP area ..... by invitation only ....

    This is where unlimited amount of foods and drinks are served inside.. there's a place for dine in lots of food are served with buffet style.. After the finals, the championship trophy which was lifted by LCW are placed just before the dining area. Mas player's past achievements in international stage photos which taken by abedeng are hung around the hallway sparks interest from Gill Clark and the bwf senior umpire while they exit through there. On top of that, Malaysia player's rackets and shirts which are for auction are also on display before you enter the dining area.. Notable name include KKK, TBH and Goh Liu Ying.. TBH's z force racket are also auctioned at rm5000...
