    Default A bit off topic-Hmm..

    ..well, in respect of those players' decisions, their exodus was probably due to a number of reasons, but primarily to have a better situation/opportunity/life.
    -One would be, they could develop and expand the sport in another country, which could use their talents for the sport's exposure. While at the same time they can compete and play, internationally, without restrictions for their new host country.
    Is this possible in a country like Indonesia, where badminton is arguably one of its top sports??..
    -Two would be, they went there for study/education or personal reason (followed spouse).

    But notice another important point, that is, all of them (and i'm sure there are more ex-INA & CHN players) went from a country not known for its economic stability to ones with a much2 stable economy & developed standard of living. Even Rexy took a hike and is now sharing his knowledge in M'sia.
    Sure, there are other non-badminton countries, similar to those countries mentioned above, but those players chose differently & what's best for them.

    Off-topic:
    ...
    If a person is a descendant of parents from 2 nationalities, then that person may choose to become a citizen of one of the parent's country from the very beginning. So, not necessarily the father's. That person may choose his/her mother's. Indonesia's law is amazingly gender neutral....
    ..eehhmm, are you sure a just born infant can choose his or her nationality, right after birth/"from the beginning"??..

    Btw, speaking of Indonesia's new "equal rights" law, i read recently in a couple of publications, they mentioned that there are still instances where govt. officials would still give someone, one who is of Indonesian citizenship, a hard time of processing visas etc.(they still ask for passport as a proof??). I've also heard from a couple of INA friends, who are living in INA, that they faced the same type of difficulties...Oh well, i guess, 'by law', it's "equal". But in reality, it's still a far cry from being "equal" (esp. when $$$ is involved)......

    Need more than that?

    Yeah, the girl was very pissed off, so was Bao
    - Bao's fault: HE'S TOO HANDSOME!
    - The girl's fault: She gotta think about Bao's condition at that time: The previous day Sony has beaten him, while he wanted to win badly... he's very tired and sleepy but the coach ordered him to record the match while he's desperate for a nap. Not a great idea to ask some photos.

    *You can call me whatever you want, lha..*
    Oh yeah, maybe that's a great idea.
    I will sort the photos and edit it a little bit,
    Maybe I will post the best 25 of the photos. Okay?
    I don't think Bao want to win badly.
    I thing in this tournament, his condition isn't fit as in thomas
    He did many unforced errors
    If he didn't do many errors, Sony wouldn't win
    We can say, Sony win because Bao's unforced errors
    Sony's techinque can't win the match
    His technique is too faraway from Bao

    wew...i think she is very lucky having a bro (not a biological bro) like Bao

    Bao almost lost to Nguyen....
    sony did beat Bao many times...they are equal if you are not bias..
    Bao is atext player, not thinking player...he kept repeating same mistake over and over...

    Yeah, maybe you're right. But, in Indo open 2008, even Bao did many errors and same mistakes, his footwork and techniques like giving dropshot or cross-netting, are really troubled Sony. he could see Sony's uncapability. So, I think that he is a thinking player. Unfortunately, Bao's mental of playing is not really good, because he isn't consistent of his playing. Technique and mentality are different sides. But skill is showed by techniques, isn't it?
    Sony only beated Bao for one time in Indo open 2008, he didn't beat Bao in 2006 thomas cup.

    So do I.
    Maybe he is on his training? Because I thing that his defeat from Sony will motivate him to improve his skilll or mental much. Do he really get injury?

    Sony crushed BAO badly last year at Swiss Open....
    Sony was having thigh injury if you want to know the truth...since TC...

    BAO was not injured as I did ask him...he said that he made so mistakes and the way Sony kept fast pace in 3rd set made him tired...
    Bao is not a thinking a player if you want to keep defending him...
    Bao's skill is same as before but he has improved his defending skill...

    Mostly in China, Chinese wanted to have their Englsih names as well...to sound more sophiticated....most of my Business associates have their first Englsh names like Anthony Lin, Michael He, Grace Shu, Gloria bao,Nancy Ho, etc...
