    Guo Kai seems to be pushing NTM hard whose attrition style must be forcing his young opponent to slog it out point by point. Good for GK's experience.

    Frankly I'd prefer to see Xue Song play NTM tomorrow, wondering how Xue Song's attacks can dent NTM's solid defence or be worn out by him.

    So far CHN's young generation of players is causing a bit of a stir here. What's more important is to gain valuable experience, winning any title is just a bonus.

    Liew Daren has proven again that he cannot last three games. He lost to the unseeded Korean, Lee Dong Keun, in three games just as he did last week to Lee Hyun Il who has not played in BWF-sanctioned tournaments since London 2012 OG. The match was in the Axiata Cup competition. His excuse for the loss was that he was not feeling well. LCW should also not take it easy when he plays unseeded players as he did in AE 2013 and now the Australian Open 2013 where he needed three games to subdue the lowly ranked R. M. V. Gurusaidutt. In the AE, he was almost bundled out in the first round.

    RMV is a good player. He has improved a lot it seems. Perhaps it is a disappointment for not having a live streaming for this tournament.

    TM's strength is not really good, so let subdue Xue Song in two games. if can not, i'm afraid TM will lose in 3rd game. Good luck!

    Well, actually you don't need high level coaches to coach the kids, and in other countries they would also not coach kids. What's needed are coaches at the club or local level to teach the proper footwork and basic strokes. These are often times ignored and the "coaches" themselves perhaps have no idea how to do them correctly in the first place. If the basis is not learnt properly, there's essentially no chance for these kids to move technically one step forward or they will at the best become one of the busy-moving players that are seen quite often in tournaments.

    The so-called "talents" are often times youngsters who have won some local tournaments. If they are guided and focused to win more matches, say, by developing a more aggressive style, which usually works well against other kids, they get further away from consolidating basic skills, which is a boring but essential part of good badminton. Nowadays badminton is such a technically sophisticated sport. For the "talents", there's no way back without doing the first step right.

By this I mean that they are forceful dictators of programs and players, and this is not what is accept by many in Australia. Whilst Australian people understand the idea of hard work, the programs put in place by some foreign coaches is excessive and doesn't provide the balance that should be involved in a western program. Also they dont provide the support and comfort that should be required when dealing with junior players.

    When I said kids I was referring to the younger members of the National squad, ones aged 14-21. They go back to their associations to train and these associations don't have the cash or knowledge on how to bring in quality coaches into their association. These are the 'elite juniors' and they just dont get the correct coaching at the foundation level and then at their association level.

    You are correct in that the kids aged 6-14 just need coaches who know the basics, but the problem is many of the coaches in Australia just dont have the technical ability for this. They then get lost into bad habits and horrible coaches. The bigger/stronger boys win in early levels and then fail when they age because they had little technical ability. Once again this comes back to the inability of local associations recruiting the correct coaches for their junior programs.

    Although there is another whole conversation to this that technical ability means s#!t all and that the idea is to just let kids (6-14) enjoy playing and develop their game as they want. Technical ability can be fine tuned at a later age and just cos you dont do things by the book doesn't mean you wont succeed. Also the Australian ideal is to have ALL kids participate, not just people with ability/money!

    I know Kwun is probably closer to the money (pun intended ) as to LCW's reason for playing but I hope somewhere in there he is also playing to help promote the sport in countries where badminton is a growing minority sport. Just hope the local Aussie media comes to the party as well and do a great job raising the sport's profile!

    Where have you been, adelina76?

    You must be a LCW's fan; Your last posts were made in 2006, when LCW was here in Melbourne, Australia, for the Commonwealth Games.

    It's nice to hear from you again.

    This is Xue Song's maiden regular international tournament (not counting the junior championships), I think he exceeded expectations already.
