    Default It is only the Phillippines Open la

    With respect to the Phillippines Open, I think the Msian press and public should not get over the moon thinking that KKK/TBH are now back in business.

    The Phillippines Open cannot be used as an indicator simply because the opponents there were 3rd rate. And we simply cannot start building castle in the sky and think that KKK/TBH are now on course to take the WC simply because they won the PO.

    Thats the problem with Msian sports. We win one minor tournament and the whole buildup will start again ... and later we will fall flat on our face.

    true true...
    the opponents they played in PO are not so top class rated...
    but at least their performance is much better than previous two...
    as for WC, they are just not qualify as yet to win...

    Its true that PO is a minor tournament. However KKK/TBH shows that their form its back & most importantly their on-court spirit is high, thats what us fans r cheering about! They should be given more positive encouragement than negative comments like this.

    Trailling from behind to snatch the game in the 2nd set does shows that they are on the right track. Its not easy to play when you are trailing by so many points.

    I think the important thing here is that there form has come back. We will know see if there training has paid off in the coming World Championship.

    Agree. They should however consider it a good tune up and confidence builder. It gave them an opportunity to iron out some kinks and put to the test some of the stuff they've been doing at practice. It now puts them in the right frame of mind going into the WC.

    That's the main different of MAS players compare with the Chinese team.. Win a champs then get carried away .. and overjoyyed ! While u can see the form of the whole Chinese team never drop so significantly after their win.. Even in Olympics, WC, AE.. One fine example is ZN.. LD... Their wining chart is never like an roller coaster... is "near to straight" line in their chart.. I wonder any others country can produce the same consisitent players...
    No doubt.. KKK/TBh ever enjoy couple of continuos success.. But to be a true champion which win over fans' respect.. They must shows their consistent as Chinese players.. The most importantly.. win in Major tournamets.. such as the coming WC & Olympic.. Then only we can said they are as great as the ever consistent chinese

    You just can't win !!! When you loose, you get the bashing, when you win, its not good enough. Bottom line, this win is a big boost to their confidence and a huge step from the past three months. Why can't we take this as a positive step for the pairs. Let's cheer their success and root them to another victory at WC 2007. Be a die-hard fan !!!!!

    They simply having an outstanding perfomance in PO.. However.. It was not logic for ALL of us fink that a victory frm an Last OPens before WC will be guarantee them the title ..
    PO is over by now..We should STOP praising them .. Let them focus to the preparation in training.. Young players needs praise but they also needs crictism to mature as a great players.

    The players themselves knows that there is a big task ahead of them as WC is approaching.

    In the first place they should not be trailing behind 3rd rate opponents (thank god Cai/Fu was not there). The Philippines Open is a good warm up yes. But it is certainly no indicator.

    It is certainly not gonna be easy playing against top rate opponents.

    It is no bashing. What I am saying is that we in Msia should not fall back into our usual "chest thumping" whenever our sportsmen/women win something and then go about thinking that we are gonna conquer the world in the Malaysia Boleh trumpet call.

    Am not sure about winning the PO is a big boost to their confidence and a "huge step" forward for KKK/TBH. I think the PO is like a warm up kinda thingy.

    I am a realist. And KKK/TBH have yet to convince me that they will be up there amongst the legends.

    Great attitude. But Darien types would be what we call 'cynics.' No matter what is done, it's never good enough and the doubts will continue to simmer.Best approach is to not waste any energy, money or time on cynics.Over time, cynics may change, if ever.

    You know, types like pjswift are gonna jump on you like a group of monkeys fighting over a bunch of bananas. They are wishful thinkers and for the likes of them winning the PO is a step forward to the WC and Olympic Gold. In Msia, we have numerous wishful thinkers in all sports association. It is a Msian disease actually.

    Nowadays, 3rd rate opponents can suddenly turn on the heat in the space of one tournament. You'll have to promote them cos they beat 2 solid INA MDs otherwise you have to demote INA MDs to 4th rate. The fact that they have to give fu/cai WO in CM07 would suggest that they would have taken a lot out of fu/cai to make them vulnerable to TBH/OSH. 3rd rate? Think again.
    What would your reaction be if kkk/tbh had not won the PO title?
