Who are the Top-4 MD pairs in the world at the moment?
Scope: We are looking at MD pairs' performances from the beginning of 2007 till now.
I think we are pretty sure who are the top-3 pairs (in no particular order),
Then, which is the last pair?
What is your opinion? The choice could be based on your own criteria - just explain why in your reply.

CW/TG. They consistently get there but don't necessarily have the finishing power.

DinkAlot is right! Candra Wijaya-Tony Gunawan should be the 4th...

Agree with both of you too. What triggered me to create this thread is that I read what Rexy told the press after Macau Open,
"The world's best four pairs were there (in Macau). And I certainly want to thank and congratulate the players (KKK/TBH and perhaps CTF/LWW) for a job well done."
TG/CW didn't participate. Wonder if he was referring to JJS/LYD as the 4th pair.
If JJS/LYD works harder, they may replace TG/CW one day. That will bring us back to the later part of 1980s where the "4 Heavenly MD Pairs" came from these four countries - CHN (TBJ/LYB => CY/FHF), INA (RG/EH => MK/HS), KOR (PJB/KMS => JJS/LYD) and MAS (RS/JS => KKK/TBH) while the No.2 pairs from these countries were not strong enough to consistently challenge them.

CW/TG is far more superior compare with JJS/LYD in terms of skill/consistency

i still see tat potential winners in OG '08 to be KKK/TBH, CY/FHF, MK/HS, JJJ/LYD.. others might create upsets... referring to CTF/LWW, MLH/JE.. but i dun think LP/JS can do much cuz they have been toooo unconsistent.. ah.. i think the biggest threat is definitely TG/CW..

The veterans pair for example JE/MLH & LP/JR; CTF/LWW will be the main threat in OG.. That's where the experiences do matter most..
If Fu/Chai meets any of the above pair before the semis, they will be in deep trouble...
But personally i think KKK/TBH have great record against those veterans pairs.. maybe with the exceptions of their own teammates..
It will be tough for MK/HS to win OG to repeat their greats success
in WC07. but it is not impossible too.
