    Default Tony Gunawan

    It was discussed on TV that Tony Gunawen is the probably the best Men's Doubles player in the world.

    Did they steal that line from my "Japan Open" report?
    Or do I really have some analytical acumen for badminton?

    Don't know but i didn't see the Japan Open because SINGAPORE, didn't broadcast it. Anyhow, it would be hard to say if Tony Gunawan is the best doubles player in the world but then again, with all the other great doubles players, its hard to say eg Candra Wijaya, Sigit Budiarto, Yoo Yong Sung, Zhang Wei, Eng Hian, Halim Haryanto, Flandi Limpele, the list goes on.

    Though many of them have not shown top form lately, eg Lee/Yoo, Zhang/Zhang and Flandi/Eng, they all have the capabilities to be world champions

    Tony's crosscourt is amazing..
    I think he's the best double player in crosscourt (net).

    He's the most intelligent doubles player I have ever seen. His net coverage is simply AWESOME!!

    Agreed, especially against Zhang/Zhang at the Sudirman Cup. The winning shot was amazing. Tony plays net shots to level that i probably will never play to. Hendrawan also has some neat net shots but no one beats Tony.

    I don't doubt your analytical acumen but whether they plagiarised your report is another matter =P

    How abt doing a comparison bwt Kim Dong Moon and Tony Gunawan (spelled with 2 As btw!)? Coz the former was considered "the player of the moment" in 2000, according to the same commentators.

    I think a great deal of injustice is being done to Kim Dong Moon, he is by far the best doubles player that i have in recent years. His reading of the game and explosiveness whenever he wants to step up a gear or put the pressure on is unrivalled. Evidence of that in the Malaysian Open of last year against the Chinese pairing. And he bloody looks so casual and relaxed on court, like Rexy Mainaky letting his racket drop to his ankles after having played a smash but like lightning pouncing on the reply shots. I hope i've done him some justice.

    I don't mean any injustice to Kim Dong Moon. Really what I should have said clearly is (IMO) Tony is the best Men's doubles players AT THIS PRESENT MOMENT.

    As an all round doubles player (inc. Mxd) then Kim is probably the best but it is difficult to gauge his form as he has played so few tournaments recently and lost to China in the Sudirman Cup. If you go on recent tournament results, the Zhang Jun or Michael Sogaard have showed more consistent form.

    And YES, Kim Dong Moon showed awesome form in 1999/2000 until the Olympics crashing spectacularly early in the Mxd and losing in the Men's doubles. I was quite shocked that time. Who was he playing against in the Men's Doubles? None other than Tony Gunawen.

    In the Korean Open, the Ina pairings were split and their 1st tournament with (relatively) new partners were always going to be under pressure.

    Yes but to be fair Kim was suffering from a bad back and maybe a little fatigued from all the tournaments he had won.
