Real shame. IMO when these two are at their best, they are indeed the best doubles pair in the world. In other words, true Olympic Champions.

Olympic champs may boycott Paris
SINGAPORE: Indonesia’s Olympic and former world badminton doubles champion Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan are threatening to boycott this month’s World Championships in Paris over a row with their national federation.
The duo, ranked second in the world, are upset because the Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) failed to enter them in the China Masters, a leg of the lucrative Super Series tour.
“If we can’t play, then we won’t represent our country in the world meet,” Markis told the Jakarta Globe.
“In our contract with our sponsor, the worlds is not a mandatory event but the China Masters is.
“We were ready to play in Paris and represent our country. In fact, we were going to use our own money just to get there. But I think we have to think things over now.”
The PBSI said the 2007 world champions had failed to file the proper paperwork and therefore could not be entered for the China Masters, which takes place from Sept 14-19.
The World Championships take place in Paris from Aug 23-29. — Reuters

KinDra played an evenly match to CaiFu in WC SF until they give up and let the CHN pair crush them by 5 consecutive points in the 1st set and 8 cnsecutive points in the 2nd set both happened after they're level (1st set : 16-16 & 2nd set : 13-13). How could it be ???

Surprisingly, FHF/CY has become a lot more balanced. Quite a few points with CY at the back. I'd say that while we finally have the good old MK back, the chinese pair has evolved.
Despite the lost, I think that match was a spectacle! Definitely a match to remember. Best rally is 13-13.

FHF defense these time was remarkable compared before. In terms of skill level they are almost the same. I hope Markis & Hendra improved their mental toughness next time they meet.
