    Default Big News!!!!!==rexy Coming Back!!!!

    Lets rejoice!

    My source in ATHENS told me that 99.9% Rexy is coming back to play.
    He will start at state level in Indonesia and will try to play internationally again.

    I believe he still has the game!

    Why not continue coaching Indonesian doubles? I'm sure he has lots of experience to share, being an Olympic/World/All-England doubles champ.

    At his prime, he and partner in crime Ricky are perhaps the very best in the business, eclipsing everybody, making them happy to just arrive in the finals.

    But now?? I'm afraid his body may not be able to take the punishment - or else Zhao Jianhua could make a come back too. Lin Dan vs Zhao Jianhua... hmmm.

    But he will be different without Ricky though - the two are made for each other! Are they going to play together?

    He will first partner with his brother for the state tournament. He will then see how he fare. After that who knows. Ricky is still involved with the Indonesian Badminton association. Age wise will be another challenge for him.

    33 is still ok. Michael Jordan came back to NBA after 33.

    Is Rexy the guy who has been helping coach Gail Emms and Nathan Robertson?

    i wonder if it is because his contract with BAofE is over? it'd seems like a bad idea in the part of BAofE to let Rexy go. look at the results of Robertson/Emms. i have no doubt Rexy has a hand in raising them to this level.

    and honestly, at 37, i don't think Rexy will be much of a threat against the current batch of youngsters.

    Huh, maybe that explains the success of Emms/Robertson (and the fact that they live and train in Denmark now).

    I also noticed an Indonesian coach sitting with the Korean head coach during the men's doubles semi-finals. He was wearing a shirt with a Korean flag on the chest, but I'm sure I've seen him coaching Sigit/Chandra at the All England a few years ago (2001 or 2002).

    Am I right?

    I think Rexy is back to COACH rather than to PLAY, no...? Not a very wise move on the part of PBSI if it's the latter, IMHO!

    And no, that wasn't an Indonesian coach. The two coaches on the sidelines were Kang Kyung Jin (Ha's former partner and the fairer one) and Kim Hak Kyun (Ye Zhaoying's former boyfriend and the tanner one).

    There was an article pasted here on Rexy's return to Indonesia. Could somebody provide me with the link, please?

    Ye Zhaoying had a Korean boyfriend?? I wonder what language they spoke? (other than the obvioius one - luurrve).

    which brother?

    I guess not Richard as he is currently coaching.
    Wasn't Marleve playing under a Swiss flag recently?

    even if age, rexy is one of the all-time best doubles player in the book, added up with former top 10 singles player marleve, so i'd say the tournament they are attending will prove nothing...

    I can only imagine Rexy does that for one of two reasons - For making money or for the love of the sport.

    In general, it is not wise to make a come back after retiring at prime time. Few badders and I were just talking about the case of Tony Gunawan, who quited PBSI at his prime time and decided to study in US. It was a smart move by Tony as he already become one of the few legends in badminton history, among the best doubles players. Everyone seems to only remember him winning gold in Olympics.

    On the other hand, when we talked about Chandra, most thought he was not that good because he failed to reach the finals in ...recent tournaments. As a result.....Chandra was not as good as Tony Gunawan.
