    This is the perfect case where the often talked about partner chemistry is so important to a pair's performance.

    LYD can now have the freedom to play hard and take aggressive chances, knowing that YYS can support him and back him up, without having to worry about being exposed to any weaknesses.

    YYS may not smash as hard as KSH, but he smashes very wisely at the correct spots. And his fore and midcourt play is impeccable, a joy to watch.

    They will be a powerful pair along with Ahsan/Setiawan in dominating MD.

    According to http://www.chi2ko.com/tool/hanjakruni.htm 杻 is 뉴, which is clearly not 유

    Are you sure there are Koreans whose surname is 杻 (뉴)?
    There isn't one in 2000 or 杻 is one among OTHER or UNKNOWN, according to http://ko.wikipedia.org/wiki/%EB%8C%...AA%A9%EB%A1%9D

    To win a premier super series in their first tournament together, that's something special about this combination.

    Obviously, there is no obvious weakness in this partnership.

    In the past, opponent will always attack lee young dae partners, KO, Jung or shin not because these players can not defend but because they cannot change defend into attack while yoo can do it

    Just noticed there is a 杻 under 유
    thought 杻 and 杻 looks alike and should be the same Han character, they have different representations in Korean and Chinese (Unicode) character set.

    Anyway, I still doubt 杻 is a surname.

    Long ago thought that they might be a good pair together because yoo is to me a very quick reflexes player at front and his smashes aren't too bad !!

    A bit to early to be saying if this will be a successful partnership long term yet, we need a good 6 months or 6 tournaments to establish a baseline and let the opposition adjust to the new pairing.

    If I remember correctly KO and LYD had a very good start to their partnership before the top tier opposition studied the pair and found the right tactics to expose their weaknesses.

    Hopefully YOO and LYD will stand up to the scrutiny and still win finals against top tier as I find them an exciting pair to watch.

    It's still early days but from what I saw in the Danish Open LYD seemed a lot more relaxed playing with YOO and they seem to have an even respect for each other. When LYD was playing with KO the preassure of partnering LYD seemed to really affect him (KO) when he missed shots.

    Looking forward to more finals like the Danish though, good stuff!

    yes... ko/lee did well at start wining few tournamnts. even got the Korean Premier SS beating the danes boe/mog... but havnt really shone with what 'seemed. like negative body language on court btwn the too and not enough aggression like wen jjs played.
    having said tht.. ko/lee ended off on a high winning their last tournmt togethr as a pair.. congrats to them.
    too early to judge leeyoo as ppl said.. new pairing. weaknesses may not be exposed yet.
    congrats for winning DO Premier SS.... but to lose to a mediocre malaysian pair this week.. hmmm...
    only time will tell further results...
    congrats LYD for a great year... no matter who his partner is

    A great year for LYD????

    Remember LYD/KSH lost several times in a row to the reigning AE champion and World Champions + that upset by the Chinese-Taipei pair in the World Championships.

    I would say that LYD has a good year, winning some SSP tourneys (as always), but unfortunately, when it comes to the major, he mostly fumbles big time! So far, his only major title in MD is the 2 All England titles in 2008 & 2012. I would regard him similar to LCW in this respect

    His Olympic Gold Medal is in XD. And that's also the only major title he won in XD so far. I don't think he won many XD titles with Lee Hyo Jung.

    LYD is a gifted MD player but the MD today is so competitive and this past year
    Hendra, another supremely gifted player with the powerful Ahsan, have been
    sensational with their fast, economical game.
    LYD only bottles up when he meets the fat HTH, eversince his junior days.

    Two Swiss Opens, 2 Korea Opens, 2 China Opens, one German Open, one Asian Championship, in addition to the Olympics. All that in 3.5 years. That's not too shabby, but no, they were never invincible or really even dominant. Hoon Thien How is one nemesis. Zheng Bo was another.

    Note - 2 Korea Opens (homeground) :P

    I believe one of them involved the Final match against Flandy/Vita in 2008. That was full of controversy and the INA camp was quite upset by the linejudges' performance throughout the Final.

    OK, so apart from the World Champs this year... in terms of Winning 2 SS Premier events, thats equivialent to 2 Major Grandslams in tennis, eg. wimbledon + US open? or something similar.

    we are analysing LYD's career here, I just brought up this year hahah...

    Im sure he's won enough OSIM massage chairs to open a shop lol....

    hope lee/yoo do well for the rest of the year.
