    SIN has won unbelievably, when the net cord stopped the Malaysians.

    Remarkable that our qualifier MD accounted for MAS #1 & 2 seeds.!

    First big pay check for Danny and Chayut. Congrats
    Yup, what a big surprise created by SIN MD to eliminate two home fave pairs, well done!

    Sad ending for home fans as the sole survivor Goh/Lim failed to retain their title. China won 3 titles with their back-up shuttlers, double joy for Huang Yaqiong to nail 2 titles. And Simon finally crowned MS title in gruelling match against Indian Sourabh Varma, congrats

    Yes, you're right. It's possible to Singapore's badminton athletes to win World Badminton Championship. Congratulation to Danny/Chayut.

    Every country has a chance of winning, so long as they enter players!

    Congratulations, to Danny Bawa Chrisnanta/Chayut Triyachart, the Singaporean qualifiers, on their unexpected win.
    In the process they beat HTH/TWK and GVS/LKW Malaysia's number 1 & 2 pairs and that is no small feat.
    Hopefully, they will be motivated by their win and continue to deliver.

    One thing should be said is about the first match of the day.

    Despite of Huang YaQing's upcoming mixed doubles match, the Chinese teammates went all out in the women's doubles final, for three games. Although the play quality was a notch or two below that of the AE WD final, it was still a very competitive and entertaining match.

    LYB has said that his focus will only be the Olympics and the Cups. Hope that this will become the norm when the Chinese teammate meet in competitions.

    Don't know much about these players (the badminton MD winners, not the ping pong players). Are they imports or home grown?

    XD is the event for dark horses. For the smaller badminton programs, focusing on XD may pay the most dividends.

    V Shem-Khim Wah lose to lowly Singaporeans in final (updated)

    PASIR GUDANG: Three months ago, shuttlers Goh V Shem-Lim Khim Wah jumped with joy after winning the Malaysian Open Superseries men’s doubles badminton title.

    But there was no such celebration in the Malaysian Open Grand Prix Gold at the Pasir Gudang Municipal Stadium on Saturday.

    The second seeds and heavy favourites gave a toothless display to go down 17-21, 20-22 to qualifiers Danny Bawa Chrisnanta-Chayut Triyachart of Singapore in the men’s doubles final.

    It was Danny-Triyachart’s first career title.

    It wasn’t as if Malaysia were not aware of the Singaporeans’ threat. Danny-Triyachart had already served an early warning when they sent top seeds and Malaysian No. 1 Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong packing on the opening day.

    This is Malaysia’s worst ever showing on homeground after failing to win a single title.

    But a disappointed Khim Wah took the defeat in his stride.

    “It was just not our game. We came to a point where we were not even brave enough to go for attacking shots. We must credit the Singaporeans for their good tactical game,” said Khim Wah.

    Khim Wah-V Shem just couldn’t get it right from the start – with both hardly showing any urgency in their game.

    Their movements were stiff and they often made poor returns that were easily slammed down by the Singaporeans.

    V Shem too put up a brave front, saying they will make a quick rebound in the back-to-back Indian Open and Singapore Open Superseries.

    “We wanted so badly to win the title at home again but it did not go according to plan. We will be more prepared for the next two tournaments,” said V Shem.

    Maybe you can call them hybrid?

    Born in Indonesia and Thailand, brought to Singapore in their early teens.

    I think 90% of the credit should be given to Singapore for bringing this guys up and give them the opportunity and attention they needed to grow.

    If they went to Singapore in their early teens, then Singapore can claim full credit. Otherwise, it would still be tolerable in the name of promoting badminton, but it is not the same thing.

    They say "nothing is impossible". Easier said than done!

    But it depends on what we are talking about and whether we have the wherewithal to get things done.

    As for badminton, let's be realistic. At the present time, how many countries in the world can come close to China? And China has been a model for world badminton for many years now.

    I think Singapore is realistic and rather gets its own house in order first before dreaming too BIG!

    Uncle Loh, speaking of coming close to China, I think Singapore has the most realistic chance.
    The export or should I say movement of players out of China, Singapore, ranks the highest.
    Therefore based on this theory, SIN will be second after CHN, in years to come.

    You are not talking about badminton, are you?
