because lim (other than his shaky serves ) has amazing control of the net and forecourt, and being a lefty, he often times catches his right handed opponents by surprise when their blocks and shots end up on his forehand side, after which he duly obliges by slamming down on them
i don`t think there is any other left handed front court player in the top 20 pairs, is there
and goh, preferring to be at the back has a pretty mean smash ... for someone with less muscles than lcw, he smashes harder than him!

hong wei started the mocking first...
it was game point for mas in g1 when hong wei was receiving...
the crowd was cheering support for mas after a winning rally and hong wei lifted his hands up to taunt the crowd to cheer louder... within 5 secs mas won g1 and both lim and goh used the same hand actions to tell the crowd to cheer louder...
so yes, hong wei started it first...should have known better than to taunt the mas home crowd
but still doesn`t make it ok for them to reciprocate, but now you know how it started

Dang. You guys are still going on about the attitude?
The post match comments don't fit in with a bad attitude. I think you guys are over reacting. Mind you, I think the best thing about it is Malaysian badminton got a lift and it's got people talking about badminton even more!
BTW, I think Hong Wei started it off.
And if you think this is poor, a lot of matches in UK do turn out with similar psychological warfare. You guys should go and watch a few UK county matches.

Badminton is too much of a gentleman's sport and rather dull.
Some warfare is good and more entertaining, not that I condone MAS pair and I think they overdid it a bit too much.
I think in the end CHN pair was affected and this contributed to MAS's victory.

手臂揮動過大，導致林欽華在發球時極不穩定，不是過高，就是下網，發球容易讓對手壓制，失了先機。若少了這 10次的非受迫性失誤，相信“武林”組合吳偉申與林欽華可更容易拿下這一場決賽，無需白白丟分讓自己陷入危 機。

Disagree, think it all started with GVS indicating the high serve on CB. Then CB just gestures his serve was fine. This whole time LKW is giving the death stare every time he wins a point.
There was GVS show boating when he won a point after smashing several times and pounding his chest (or something like that :|). I think HW's wave at the crowd was in response to the crowd simply going nuts over having a malaysian pair at game point. Then there was the mocking behavior when they won the first game.
oh well, we'll see how they get on with everything else. Just don't want hooligans playing a gentlemen's sport.

Then there's some ppl like nokh88 thinking that badminton is too gentlemanly and needs some edginess.
But yes, staring down and shouting at your opponent after winning a point (like Boe/Mo and Lim is in my books an unnecessary behavior that I don't want any young or old player to emulate at all.

studying in UK right now, playing for a Uni in the midland region and boy do matches get rough. most definitely concur that this is nothing compared to local matches. but saying that, just because 1st degree manslaughter is not as serious as 1st degree pre-meditated murder, doesn't mean nothing's wrong. Obvious over exaggeration here, but I just personally don't like it when a sport that mandates the highest degree of athleticism, skill, finesse and mental fortitude to be played by monkeys

I always thought LD, PG always had that edgy/sexiness about them. (I swear i'm a heterosexual male)
anyway, let the thread get back to what it's about, GVS/LKW's match.
I'm personally pretty excited to see how both the "new" malaysian pairs will do in the next tournaments. I love it when new pairs burst on to the world scene and challenge the current status quo

Lim's service has that element of surprise but it's very hard to perfect it and it's also very inconsistent.
The taunts made me feel a little awkward but it's all good fun, for me at least
The service judge probably slept for a little while when Lim obviously did a double take on one of his service, which CB tried to remind the judge.
Anyway, good job and well done LKW/GVS d('.')

if they are on a rather good level,they wont get thrashed last week.
goh is a great player,said that long time ago,but no suitable partner for him.
the serve of lim appear more than his flash of brilliant in most of the match.
he need some counseling on this matter,just like chan peng soon~
