James Chua To-Be GiantKiller in Philippines
He will beat the mediocre field (only Hafiz, Beng Hong and Boonsak to beat).
Hafiz and Beng Hong have to step up ---- I think they are still not ready yet. The nerves will be with them.
James Chua has got nothing to lose --- he should go close.

James has been trainiing for a while now and he should be in shape --- the question is whether he has the mental strength to carry him. I give him a good chance if he is in shape. I remembered him too as a very good player and yes he was 'robbed' by his injury.
Tsuen Seng has never stepped up --- I think he does not take care of himself well --- I saw him once eating at the food court in the megamall with his girlfriend. Most likely too much laksa and and nasi lemak.

Well then that would be good to know.
I have not checked the draw but i would not rule out our neighbours from the north, Vietnam & Thai. They are defo establishing themselves at a respectable level.
As you said, dicipline in taking care of their body plays a big part in a pro athelete career.

James Chua is like the best player from sarawak right now eventhough he went to Kl to train. I wish him all the best and hope he can at least get to the semis. But i don think he is in the best shape, i heard that he is abit fatter now when he was in sarawak for the thomas cup training.

I will be very, very surprised if James Chua could beat Boonsak and Hafiz!

I thought the TC training would have slimmed him down. Did he feast on laksa and kolo mee or maybe sharksfin soup and will boar meat ? Shouldn't BAM be monitoring this --- don;t they have a program to advise them what to eat. See this is one of the things that angers me about BAM. They do not impose a strict diet plan for their players --- with all the money they spent on these players, they allow them to eat what they like.

Football players are much more highly paid, yet they go drinking alcohol, go to nightclubs, get into fights? Shouldn't their clubs stop them from going out?
Advice on what to eat is one thing. If you tell your players they cannot eat certain foods they like, I think you will not have many badminton players left - in M'sia, or in other parts of the world.

These days to be competitive, you need to take care of your body. Just take Malaysian Josiah Ng, he will tell you how many calories he needs to consume and expand everyday --- top sportsmen excel because they care of their diet. Professionals will take offense to what you say as they dedicate their bodies to their sports (there is food analytics now being taught at sports institions). I know the top cyclists like Andersen devote half their time managing the food they eat as fats eat awy their stamina.
Your comments are irrelevant as you do not know the changing trend in sports (in fact this 'health' trend has been around for such a long time) -- where have you been man ? Who cares about footballers, they do not count as the top echelons of individual sports.

I think what Cheung means is that even professional players must be given some liberties, perhaps to ensure that they remain sane. Even in the choice of food, it is not particularly harmful if a player chooses those that he likes to eat so long as the nuitritional value is not lost. Being too regimental may not suit every player and the coach must use his discretion.
A professional footballer is known to be one of the toughest athletes around and he can certainly compare very well against a professional badminton player. Although football is a team game, every member must be in tip-top physical and mental condition to perform and coordinate well. Their game is entirely different from badminton and we must not take away the credit from them.
Who cares about football? Being the no. 1 sport in the world, when the professional players are highly paid and well supported by sponsors, your question is redundant. Come June, all the world's eyes will be glued to the TV, some during very odd hours just to watch their favourite heroes and teams in action. Money will spin, high stakes will be involved.
When can badminton achieve such accolades???

In saying that I don't care I waqs referring to football as a team sport so people can drink and cavort if they like but not individual sport. I will also be watching football come the world cup.

However, if I am not mistaken, in 2002 Malaysian National Grand Prix Final, The Mens singles champion goes to Lee Chong Wei who beat Wong Choong Hann in the final. And from year 2002 onwards, LCW is always Malaysian National Champion till now.
James international results in 2002 should be better than Lee Chong Wei.
Personally, I still think Wong Choong Hann should be the top Malaysian singles player in 2002 but difficult to rate the others. There are a few good players in Malaysia beside WCH such as Roslin Hashim, Ong Ewe Hock, Yong Hock Kin, James Chua, Lee Tsuen Seng, Lee Chong Wei and Hafiz Hashim.
