I wish they would have an exhibition match that put top singles players against the top doubles players, or it would be fun to see ZN or XXF play a MS player. Or what about ZN/XXF playing doubles against Gao/Huang?
agree with you,,
another example for now was mia audina and wangchen
both always play doubles in uber cup and mostly gave a victory point..
i remember wang chen paired with koon wai che at uber cup...it's not bad combination coz they still deliver point for the team
1. Mia and WC's individual skills are way superior than most of their opponents (single or double) in UC.
2. Mia and WC do practice double games with their partners, but not just wake up and randomly pick one teammate and get on.
Therefore, Mia and WC's case of using regular double partner (even though they are more focus on single) against way below their standard opponents are totally different than the original topic.
I will say, on the same (or very close) standard, 2 randomly paired top single players can NEVER beat a well proven pair of double players.
Taufik and Lindan definately cannot communicate with each other on court. They will either let that person retrive all the shots or they themself get it. I'm sure it will be funny to watch them play together. In terms of winning... i dont think so. But it will be entertaining.
..it'll be 1 vs. 2, just like in practice..LinDan plays the first 11 pts and then Taufik finishes the following 11 pts or vice versa..
Juniors and seniors are as different as red and coffee beans - they both grow on soil but red beans are made into confectionaries and drinks, while coffee gets marketed worldwide in overpriced styrofoam cups and movie product placements.
I have another scenario in mind - the top-4 MS players form two pairs and play against each others. What kind of combination would bring us a balanced competition? I assume the No.4 MS player is Gade (I don't want to have two players from the same country anyway, so BCL and CJ are not considered).
LD and TH seem to have personal conflicts according to what the media has reported. If that is the case, they shouldn't play together. What if LD/PG vs. LCW/TH?
