Worst WC MD final ever!
Seriously, how could Kido/Setiawan and JR/LP lose to the Eng pair?

i know it wasnt a good MD final but too be fair the chinese were by far the best pair in the tournament and fullfilled their top seed spot. dont take anything from the english pair, they obviously played very well. what your saying is a bit disrespectful. i think u regard the other two pairs to highly and dont regard the english pair as a top pair. didnt u realise that anthony clark got to the MXD final aswel so is obviously in form. dont take anything from the english pair, they deserve to get there. they beat them because they played better.

aren't clark & blair ranked 7 in dworld? althou i prefer to ignore the rankin system, fact is this ENG pair are world class as they can clearly compete wit the best of them.. jst dat 2day i think they felt overwhelmed with d occasion (and the god-like form of cai/fu!)

If their performance today is normal for them, then I really don't think the Eng pair deserves to be a top MD. Many pairs would do much better facing Cai/Fu. And if I am not wrong, Chan/Koo beated the Eng pair quite easily in the commonwealth final.

Maybe the Eng pair is just not good at playing Cai/Fu type fast and furious pairs. Their drives are quite weak and they like to play at the net and then lift or get a lift from the opponent. You need to be strong in fast drives to beat Cai/Fu, that's their only weakness.

They were totally outclassed by the chinese pair!

The England pair play below form. Probably they lack confidence when they meet Cai/Fu.
First, they lost badly when they meet the CHina pair last year. 15-4,15-1. Then the extra confidence of the Chinese pair after their win last night against one of their toughest rival, Jens/Martin.
In the final of a big event, mentality also play big part of determining your success of winning.
Other example, Lin Dan. He was so sure he can beat BCL. (He already won against BCL 5 times in a row)So even a devastating lost in first set. He still had the confidence and win the other 2 sets.

I think they were just nervous today. Don't judge them by one match. Remember LWW/CTF's performance at All England final this year? If someone didn't watch their matches before the final, he must be wondering why they could enter the final too.It is the same case here.

With ENG and CHI in final the audience will assure a boring match.

LD see bao's form often, what bao gained, LD see
i watched the kido/setiwan vs blair/clarke.
yes, i think nervousness hampered the english pair greatly.
However, in the match against the indo, they won by mostly
unforced error by the indos, mostly relating to not adjusting
to the wind draft. (INA hits many winners out, while calling many
'IN' as out on their side.
blair/clarke has indo form from rexy's training but their drives are mostly
placement type, not much punch to them. Cai/fu drives are punchy and hard.

please re-read my above post, 'LD knows how to beat bao'
secondly, bao is a certified 'Mr Runner Up'.
the MS final result was highly predictable.

Please note the thread is about MD final, not MS.
