don't get panda eyes asking taufik ''hey, you got a slim chance of winning a biggie so you should come to usa or canada more often''

What is most heartening to see in IO10 about Taufik is how motivated and physically improved he is. He should not be underestimated as long as his motivation is high. There are clear indications that his stamina and fitness are better than ,say,two years ago. Taufik (and PG) only lose to LCW and LD because of speed. In two years, anything can happen to LCW and LD's natural speed. If their speed comes down, then the speed gap will be minimal and LCW and LD will have little speed advantage over TH and PG; the matches should get interesting.
I hope both PG and TH maintain themselves until OG12 because both are terrific badminton kings and by continuing to play at a high level and regularly at tournaments, at the expense of being 'upset' by younger players, their contribution to badminton is priceless and probably will be unmatched in that sense by both LCW and LD. LD plays for himself and now is only interested to win 'big' ones; PG and TH play for the sport of badminton, even if their chances of winning a title is slim. But I believe both PG and TH will have the chance to win a title in the run-up to OG12.

totally agree with Badmania on his statement:
Fact is: TH is an Olympic Gold Medallist, 2x Asian Games Winners and a World Champion.
PLUS : Taufik Hidayat is the first player ever in Badminton History that WON Olympic Gold and WC at the same time...and he won them all in the best manner (OLD SCORING SYSTEM)... ..also...2 x Asian Games winner..2002 (old Scoring System) and 2006 (new scoring system)...on route of winning the 2006 asian games ..he beat BCL, LCW and LD all in straight games....in 2005 WC also LCW and LD straight sets...
INA SS, Singapore SS, etc are just another name for what used to be the INA Open, Singapore Open, etc. And, Taufik had won those events before.
So to all taufik hidayat haters......pls think carefully before throwing a comment into the BC forums
also what more can you ask taufik to prove?????

i think this member is not a hater, its probably a guy who thinks he can prove taufik's winning future
and he messed it up and end up with a lot of members thinking that he is anti-taufik
i maybe wrong but i know the discussion was so looong....

TH has always been my favourite MS player and will probably for a very long time!

For example, a guy/gal who's won boatloads and is sure past his/her prime should just let go in trying to win some more (if not one more)?
Another example would he ctjcad's undying insistence that one title is bigger than another so not bagging a certain title is no biggie? ...yet ctjcad's insists that if TH wants to win one more, it should be the AE! Why, another WC is lesser a title?
ctjcad probably is philisophical, he didn't really pass the baton or throw the ball back at my court... ...maybe, moving the GOALPOST was an alternative?
Why is it so hard for us to enjoy what TH, LCW or even LD can bring to this sport we love w/o being too hard on the players as well as WE, the enthusiasts/supporters?

I do agree with Chris that the chance of Taufik winning another big one is slim. Not entirely impossible but slim. I do not think it's any worse than say BCL or CJ or PG winning another big one though, but certainly way better than SS, SDK, BP or NTM. Afterall, the "chance" has to be divided with the two main contenders (LCW + LD) who already had the lion's share.
I think he's playing better today than in 2005-2007. He's much more serious but the age is definitely showing in terms of speed. Stamina is always Taufik's achilles heels.

Seriously, you really don't know abt all the biggie tourneys or just pretending to not know anything abt them??..
And please don't put words into my mouth as i didn't mention he should just let go in trying to win some more..
