If Indian players were using Yonex, surely they would go.
But if their sponsor is Li Ning, they might prefer to concentrate on other tournaments.
Saina is sponsored by Yonex and Sindhu by LiNing. Gopichand was saying on that day that they want to concentrate on commonwealth games, Asian Games etc than participating in all tournaments. They might have thought to give sindhu an opportunity to get more experience.
Hm....this is because gopi sir wants gold in CWG AND a medal in Asian....But hope she plays the Star Australia open...where she might face WSX (battle of my favourites )which will give her even more experience against Chinese top singles!!
interesting. if they win JP open, i think they gonna stick with it. Goh is talented. tanBH showed his desire once more after so many years. good coach and strategy will be needed.
My personnal view, TBH/HTH and GVS/TWK pairs should be maintained. GVS/TBH may be a stronger pair, but if we stick to this pair, Malaysia will only have one strong pair. There is no clear winner in MD department now, Indonesia, Korea, China, Denmark, Japan, Malaysia pair are almost equal, even Taiwan, Russia and Germany pairs are coming out strongly. So it's better to have 2 strong pairs instead just one....
