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

One question: When did Zhang Yawen and Yang Wei split? and why?
03-18-2007, 04:47 AM #55
I think u mean yang wei and zang jiewen rite?
in ae they are still together
as far as i know, they are only split in SO cos the coach wanted to try and form better pairs fot OG

> 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.
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.

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.
03-18-2007, 05:53 AM #64
I see what you mean Jack.In the SF yesterday, they thrashed TG/CW 21-7 in the 3rd set.

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.

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
