My first post on NTM was some 3 years' ago even though I have seen him earlier when he first started out and played in some satellite events in Singapore. He was always trying hard but he was rather gangly and his skill was somehow lacking at that time although his fitness was good.
Despite not having a permanent coach and financial support, it appears that his love for the game, his persistence and self-discipline at training have overcome all odds and it finally paid off as his skill is now more polished and his motivation for success has not faded. The best part is that he continues to remain humble, focussed and seek perfection in his game.
His recent performance and success have attracted the attention of some local and foreign sponsors, including Victor, the Taiwanese sports equipment supplier quite well known in the badminton fraternity. It must be his strong desire to repay his sponsors, particularly Victor, that has motivated him to play well to subdue Malaysian veteran WCH, who surprised by beating TH in the SF, to win the just-concluded Taiwan Open - his second GP title this year.
If NTM remains as motivated and as disciplined in his training and continues to work as hard, there is no telling how far he can go up the ranks. NTM is the man to watch from now onwards and having beaten both LCW and TH recently, his confidence has blossomed. No player can now take him lightly.

You hit the 'nail on the head' in your comment of NTM. Yes, no player including LD, can take NTM for granted from now on. He was just too good for Uncle WCH who was made to look 'silly' in his match against NTM.

(Problem is when will that happen and NTM may not have the patience to wait too long! )[/quote]
Yes, sure NTM can.......with his great improvement recently of course he will be able to beat LD one day,....even a mentally weak LCW can beat LD....quite a few times......I dont see why NTM have to wait too long...
By the way, uncle Loh,....when this NTM beat TH....? sorry i cant recall...

NTM is good... but he is a one man gang... not much support from his country...
but vIetnamese do have STRONG MENTAL!

So sorry a little mixed-up, it was WCH who beat TH although NTM beat WCH for the Taiwan Open title.
Well it is the majors that count at the highest level and LCW must have that mental strength to deliver, otherwise NTM may overtake him for that rare honour.
Good that you think it is possible.

I think after few more season, he could fight Lin Dan already.
He has powerful smashing and strong speed. So far the most powerful MS Vietnam.

It depends on what you mean by a "few more seasons". If you mean a few more years, then it is more reasonable.
Be prepared though, that along the way NTM will himself be beaten by lower ranked players just to bring him back to reality and hopefully make him more motivated!

I just hope the government could give him more money to live.
