    Not because of lack of talented players, more because of not much effort (so far) has been done to develop young blood. And amazingly, this is not because of lack funds or proper sports school concept for young talents.

    BAM even lacks development of XD programme. The men's are stagnating and the women's discipline should have had more depth by now. How long has it been since Wong Mew Choo and Wong Pei Tty/Chin Ee Hui made their mark in the world stage?
    agree.i think mas actually has talented players but unfortunately doesnt have a good management. it is actually funny to see BAM only coming up with a proper xd program now considering that mas is a quite famous in badminton since quite a long time ago though more in men's department. but what took them so long to start it when other countries like china and INA already have it earlier and are already producing champs in xd. is it only after the WC bronze win by kkk/wpt and AG bronze by wpt/fairuz, they start considering to specialise in xd?

    besides kkk/tbh , the men are not showing any impressive results lately. it is good to see the success of kkk/tbh but mas cannot be overdepented on them just like depending only on lcw(and now what happens?)i also would like to see other mas pairs showing results and be on par with kkk/tbh. mas need to have 2 or 3 good pairs like china(in ms) to be more secure.

    as for lcw, i read from news that he was not planning to defend his ABC title next month but the 1st round defeat in SO may caused him to change his mind.as qwertyu said, maybe he should rest like nicol david and get back his form. talking about nicol, i think that she is a true champion. i admire her the most cos of her skills, nice personality and strong mental.
    mas badminton players should learn to have mental strength as strong as hers. she remains unbeaten for 40 matches in all competitions after her defeat in CG06.
    lcw should be like tat.learn from failure and come back better.
    in my opinion ,so far only kkk/tbh and wch had show strong mental toughness.

    as for the women
    ya i agree that they would be much better if only some steps are taken earlier like sparring with men.
    wmc started training with men and she was under li mao from last year i think.
    this certainly pays off as we can see that she is improving(able to beat CHN now) and becoming more consistent.
    ceh/wpt should have started sparring with men much earlier.anyway better late than never.
    ceh/wpt also show improvement after the sparring by beating TPE despite ceh's injury.
    but mas wd still lack good players besides them. the gap is still far between them and others.
    unlike in ws, we have julia, lydia and anita.
    but i was surprised that they didnt send julia to SO as she is in the top 20 and automatically gets to main draw. sigh.
    julia, lydia and anita needs more exposure and same goes to the juniors in other categories esp ms and wd.


    and about poor management, this news in NST is funny:

    In the women’s doubles, Fong Chew Yen-See Phui Leng were forced to concede a walkover to Indonesia’s Greysia Polii-Vita Marissa as they were stranded at Dubai International Airport which was closed for eight hours following an accident on the runway on Monday.

    they are supposed to reach earlier before Mon for the qualifying
    actually due to many withdrawals in SO , their seeded opponent in qualifying match got promoted to main draw and their second round opponent gave them walkover.
    so they got into main draw without even playing any match.
    so lucky but somehow unlucky that they have to give walkover in the end to INA in 1st round.
    i dont know this is bad luck or mismanagement but i feel that if they have better planning and not last minute, this wont happen.
    what a waste.





    finally my predictions for winners(sorry if i make you bored with my long post)haha:

    Chen Jin- but on form simon will make it tough and interesting

    Zhang Ning-she is definately better

    kkk/tbh-looks good for a double title this month

    Yang Wei/Zhao Tingting-i think CHN is still better though they are new pair

    Gresya Polii/Muhammad Rizal- the new pairing of KOR is better than old pairing but i think INA will win this


    go mas and polii
    haha enjoy SO

    I remember the BAM has been talking about grooming XD pairs once in a while in the past 2 decades but they have never been serious about it. Wonder if it will be going down the drain again this time round.

    I don't recall them playing together as a pair.

    Then:
    Zhang Dan/Zhang Yawen
    Wei Yili/Zhao Tingting
    Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen

    Now:
    Zhang Yawen/Wei Yili
    Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen (though recently split up-Yang Wei pairing up with Zhao Tingting)

They train full time, 6 days a week and do not go home for Chinese New Year celebrations at just to train and stay focus for future competitions! So you can imagine how much endurance is that.. Their way of training is crazy, no doubt their players are solid...

    To say Malaysia being overdependant on them(kkk/tbh), maybe. Its natural to be the centre of attention after emerging champions in various tournaments, so naturally fans & media focus on them. I'm sure Malaysians would wish to see other teams do well, so do I. We all know for sure M'sia's badminton camp is weak, so at least kkk/tbh is the benchmark and inspires other players to do well. Rexy is also bringing up other young pairs, and not to forget training new mix doubles pair as well. As for the singles, BAM have to sit down n discuss how to go about next. Being constructive at this stage is important, c'mon we all wan consistent world champions...Just producing them isn't easy.

    I think the semi final match starts at 9 pm or 1 am..1 am most likely i think...
    Very well written and constructive. This is the type of discussions we want .

    KKK/TBH is hot favourites tonight.. just my personal opinion! hope they win it in straight set. but nice to see them practising their defence in the second set and win convincingly in the third set.

    Oh Yeah, i might be feeling a little bit EMOTIONAL. By the way, in a BC doesnt totally means we totally need to show all our IQ here, but most importantly our EQ here. Yup, it is not the end of the world, but ALWAYS ALWAYS back up with FACTS in every single statement, otherwise it will OFFEND a lot of people. NO, Lin Dan DID NOT lose "MANY MATCHES" in the past 12 MONTHS. Here you go :

    15 Jan 2006 -YONEX GERMAN OPEN 2006 Semi-Finalist

    22 Jan 2006 -YONEX ALL ENGLAND OPEN 2006 Winner

    12 Mar 2006 -CHINA MASTERS 2006 Semi-Finalist

    18 Jun 2006 -PROTON MALAYSIA OPEN 2006 Runner-Up

    25 Jun 2006 -CHINESE TAIPEI OPEN 2006 Winner

    23 Jul 2006 -Macau Open Championship 2006 Winner

    02 Sep 2006 -YONEX SUNRISE HONG KONG OPEN 2006 –Winner

    24 Sep 2006 -WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2006 Winner

    15 Oct 2006 -YONEX JAPAN OPEN 2006 Winner

    22 Oct 2006 -CHINA OPEN 2006 Semi-Finalist

    28 Jan 2007 -YONEX KOREA OPEN SUPER SERIES Winner

    04 Mar 2007 -YONEX GERMAN OPEN 2007 Winner

    11 Mar 2007 -YONEX ALL ENGLAND SUPER SERIES Winner


    How would a player WILL BE ABLE to retain a WORLD TITLE if he / she does NOT consistently WIN in a tournament. Nevertheless, there is no need to to elaborate so much here, as this is not an exam. I think you have some feelings towards certain players. Anyway, be intelligent as u can. And, lastly, dont ever quote people's statement without any EQ ANYMORE.

    REPLY :
    No man, its all depends on how u see it. I think Sony is up to a certain level all the time

    His best past achievement (excluding minor tournaments):-

    02 Apr 2006 -Asian Badminton Championships 2006 – Quarter-Finalist
    11 Sep 2005 -Asian Championships 2005 – Winner
    26 Apr 2004 -Asian Championships 2004 – Runner-Up
    17 Nov 2002 -JVC Asian Champs 2002 – Winner

    I think it doesnt matter if u lose to a lower-ranking player as long as u maintain up to Q.Final. Some might have different point of views though
