I really admire their defensive skills. It's like they are 'trapping' or using 'Catanaccio style' to tire/luring their opponents into mistakes.
Simply, too hard for majority of WD team to beat them by smashes.
Ti-10 is simply the best defensive/counter attacking racquet.

Badminton / Indonesia Open: Pei Tty-Eei Hui end their barren spell
By K.M. Boopathy
WONG Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui finally justified their position as the women's World No 1 pair by winning their first title of the year with a smashing performance in the Indonesia Open at Senayan Stadium in Jakarta yesterday. Pei Tty-Eei Hui were never threatened by China's No 3 Cheng Shu-Zhao Yunlei and snatched a well earned 21-16, 21-16 win in 37 minutes to secure the second Super Series title of their career.
Eei Hui's recurring injury problems saw the top Malaysian combination struggle since winning the Denmark Open and Super Series Masters Finals last year.
The pair badly needed a confidence boost after suffering early exits from one tournament to another this year and the turning point came when they ended a seven-match losing streak by beating South Korea's Lee Kyung Won-Lee Hyo Jung in the quarter-finals in Jakarta.
This was followed by another fine win over top Taiwan pair Cheng Wen Hsing-Chien Yu Chin and a title win was on the cards as Pei Tty-Eei Hui's confidence was unshakable against Cheng Shu-Yunlei in yesterday's final.
Except for a brief rally where Cheng Shu-Yunlei reduced the gap from 17-13 to 17-16 in the second game, it was Pei Tty-Eei Hui who secured the next four points to achieve another milestone in their career.
Eei Hui especially was overjoyed with the victory as she has not been performing well since returning from back and ankle injuries in April.
"We never thought about winning the title. I really played badly in the Sudirman Cup in Guangzhou (last month) and wanted to make amends, and winning the title has been very satisfying," said Eei Hui by telephone from Jakarta yesterday.
"It has been an excellent tournament as we managed to beat the Koreans for the first time and we have also struggled to beat the Taiwan pair. We achieved both this time and won the title.
"We managed to get our rhythm right and it really feels good to win as the World No 1. We hope to keep our momentum going for future tournaments."
The win was worth US$18,750 (RM66,600) to the pair but more importantly, Pei Tty-Eei Hui now have the belief to target their first medal in the World Championships in Hyderabad on Aug 10-16.
Pei Tty-Eei Hui will also have the honour of being the first Malaysian women's doubles pair to be the top seeds in the World Championships as their victory in Jakarta will ensure they maintain the World No 1 spot until the July 16 ranking which will determine the seedings for the major event.

Badminton: Eei Hui-Pei Tty finally justify their No. 1 status
By RAJES PAUL
PETALING JAYA: It was a day of firsts for Malaysia’s Chin Eei Hui-Wong Pei Tty and India’s Saina Nehwal when they prevented a China domination in the women’s badminton events of the Indonesia Open at the Istora Senayan in Jakarta yesterday.
Eei Hui-Pei Tty ended six months of disappointment when they justified their world No. 1 status for the first time, beating China’s Cheng Shu-Zhao Yunlei 21-16, 21-16 in a 37-minute final match.
It was sweet revenge for the Malaysians, who were beaten by the Chinese pair once before in the final of the Japan Open last year.
For Eei Hui-Pei Tty, it was their third international Open title after their success in the Danish Open and the Super Series Masters Finals last year.

Their good run in the second half of last year saw them take the world No. 1 ranking in January but since then, they failed miserably and did not feature in a final until yesterday. And a back injury to Eei Hui in March did not help their cause. But yesterday, all went right for Eei Hui-Pei Tty.
“Honestly, the win here is something that is difficult for me to believe. We were not thinking about our world No. 1 status. We just took a match at a time,” said Pei Tty in a telephone interview.
“But to come this far and win our first title this year here in Indonesia is really great. I think, the turning point for us was our first-ever win over the Koreans (Lee Hyo-jung-Lee Kyung-won in the quarter-finals). It lifted a big burden off our shoulders. It gave us a lot of confidence to go all out in the final.”
The 29-year-old Pei Tty gave credit to Eei Hui, who celebrated her 27th birthday on Thursday, for her quick comeback from injury.
“It is common to be injured but Eei Hui certainly did great to make a strong comeback sooner than expected. It involves a lot of hardship.”
Eei Hui said that they played the right tactical game to get the better of the Chinese.
“Cheng Shu, especially, was making a lot of mistakes. She was our target for the day. Our defence was also solid and that frustrated our opponents,” she said.
“We certainly surprised ourselves with the win here. All the top pairs were in the competition and it definitely gives us confidence and a new hope to do well in the world championships (in India from Aug 10-16). But we still need to brush up some areas of our game.”
The next tournament for Pei Tty-Eei Hui is the Malaysian Open Gold Grand Prix, beginning on Wednesday in Johor Baru.
In the women’s singles, 19-year-old Saina scored a major breakthrough in her career when she put up a brilliant show, especially in the decider, to stun Wang Lin of China 12-21, 21-8, 21-9 in a 49-minute thriller.
It was Saina’s first Super Series title and it certainly gave her a huge dose of confidence ahead of the world championships in Hyderabad. Just a day ago, the former world junior champion, beat world No. 3 Lu Lan of China.
For the record, it is rare for China to return home without a title from either the women’s singles or doubles.
