    Default NEWS: SwissOpen07 : Santoso beats Chen Yu

    The young Indonesian talent, Simon Santoso, through from the Qualifying
    event, takes yet another step up at this event. Today he was up against
    5/8 seed Chen Yu, CHN, who last week was runner-up at the All England.
    Santoso played with great confidence throughout this match and took the
    lead from the very first stroke. First game was won with 21-10. One
    decisive factor was the play at the net - Santoso succeeded, Chen Yu
    didn't. As the match progressed Chen Yu seemed lack of confidence that
    he could turn it around to his own advantage.
    In the second game Santoso continued where he left off in the first. He
    kept controlling the net and furthermore sent Chen Yu from corner to
    corner. Chen Yu was not very good friend with the lines today, and he
    didn't at all play with the same spirit and confidence as he did in
    England just last week.
    Although being the better part in the second game, Santoso didn't make
    an ultimate break in the score until 7-7. Chen Yu didn't succeed with
    anything at by the minute his confidence seemed to drop off him. On
    numerous occassions he sent the shuttle out the backline.
    Santoso to the game 21-12 on the first match ball.

    Seems Chen Yu was a bit out of character in this game. Is that a sign of fatigue or injury?

    I would Guess mental fatigue more than anything. He has played a lot of mathes recently, reaching German and AE finals.

    Simon played consisently, with few errors, but nothing special, CY made many erros, and didn't seem to have inclination to attack.

    I was shocked when I saw Simon beated Chen Yu.

    Could it be a fluke like Dickey Palyama beating Peter Gade?

    That wasn't a fluke. It was a one-off, wherby Dickys tactics were supported by his consistency in pulling it off, maintaining a strategy, and Gade not responding and changing his own.

    It may not happen again, but that does not make it a fluke-a fluke is all luck.

    only LD can throw a match. LD is imo a level above chen yu and bcl, same goes for LCW, hafiz. Only kuncoro, PG and CJ might have a chance of upsetting LD on his (LD) bad day.

    hahaha, not on purpose tho. I was gonna edit that post but then u pop this question, so fast I would put TH in the camp with PG, kuncoro, CJ. I also forgot about KJ, he kinda different, i would put KJ between the above 2 groups. Santoso improvement is quite surprising, he isnt that tall. I guess he is honing his skills to mimic TH, work the net and induce a nice 3/4 lift.
