    As I said many times before, after TH, LCW and PG done with the game, it would all china dominance.

    Did remember Fung Permadi? People thought he had finished..after moving to taiwan...he played better...so you will never know that "udah mentok" can go futher...I think mentally and experiences are very important factor in the games...

    Like in Tennis, no one expect Amanda Coetzer can counter Seles or Hingis...Amanda is just like Simon...determination and fighting spirit are imprtant factors beside the skills...

    I would not give up on Sony or Simon yet...

    Default A bit off topic-True, determination and fighting spirit are as important, but..

    ..hehe, and so far from what you've seen, what do you think of both Sony's & Simon's level of determination and fighting spirit??...
    Personally, for Sony, a couple or so yrs ago, i thought he would be the 2nd dependable player after Taufik..But numerous injuries have befallen on him (ie. his foot injury just before the World Championships) and now who knows what happened to his game??..I believe, he's even gone behind Simon as the #3 MS, no??..
    Anyways, we'll give 'em another yr to prove themselves...

    just saw you were discussing simon santoso and was wondering if players from indonesia can be reached anywhere? by e-mail or homepages? for an example like peter gade?

    Maybe this doesn't belong in this discussion, but don't know whereelse to ask..
