    I think it's part of the learning curve for Koo/Tan, esp Tan. Tan must get over those defeat as they are simply part of the games...u win some, u lose some. There's no need to be overly affected by a particular loss.

    Hwang looks much fitter and stronger than the last i saw her play, in AG06 i think. The jap girl was like playing against the wall today. I see bright future in the korean girl.

    Errrr Fuzzy used to be the back guy, being taller than Zakry. Wasnt much effective there, so now Zakry become the aggressive guy. Actually Fuzzy was quite good at the net if he's not nervous, if not how they win over Fu/Cai in China Open.

    Easy for us to say, TBH is one who have to bear all the pressure & criticism. Look at what happened to LCW... After like 3 to 4 years as Msia no 1, only he can get used to the pressure. KKK kind of confidence is rare for Msia young players. The oldies, CTF/LWW still get nervous, after all these years..

    Anyway, hope the resident sports psychologist can do TBH some good

    In a way, Korea didn't take the Final seriously so Malaysia should also have taken it likely even though with the loss of the MDs. The outcomes really didn't mean anything so it hard to judge the true potential for those players involved. Malaysia MDs certainly came out as losers but is not totally a bad thing, I always think Rexy should let his players exposed to more tournaments instead of stay home and prepare for the big one, nothing can replace experience from real tournament, nothing can simulate how your opponent can exploit players' weakness. So instead of staying home and train and hide your weakness, I rather our players go our and play and fix the problems as it comes along.
    Don't forget, we judge the success basically on one tournament, the Olympic so put the players out there and see what problem we have and fix it before the Olympic else will be another 4 longer years to mourn.

    I think Koo and Tan are losing on purpose so that they go into the thomas cup finals as underdogs

    So they don't have any pressure, and so that other pairs dismiss them ...

    Yeah, I think nothing beats experience. Maybe the people around him should not shield him against the public criticisms. Let him experience more of those and sooner or later, instead of being a troubling experience, it's a just a numbing experience. Same as all the accolades he will get. Instead of a glorifying experience, it should be a nuisance to him, like all those Hollywood stars under public glare.

    Nahhh the headline wont be like that, it'll be "Star doubles crashed out to strach pair" or "Bergu emas sudah hilang sentuhan." with pictures of both KKK & TBH looking dejected.
    lets see d headlines for 2day..hahha

    Yes don't shield them from anything. TBH was making a lot of mistakes -- his attacks seemed strong at times (I guess inconsistency). Somehow KKK-TBH seemed to play periods of good and bad badminton.

    They are not a strong team in my mind --- still a year or two away from being better. In the Olympics, we may still have to rely on CTF-LWW.

    Dangerous game, relying on the oldies. They are pretty good, but now very injury prone. In China, they were doing well until semis, when one of them got some injury.

    Last Thomas Cup, we got derailed by WCH's injury. Had he not had the achilles trouble, I am sure we would have made the final at least, 'cos Hafiz instead of KBH would have been in 3rd singles and probably still be too good for Persson. WCH himself would have even chance against Jonassen.

    Good balance matters. It's not about having the strongest singles and doubles, at most they can only contribute 2 pts. At minimum Teams have to have 4 of 5 matches where they are competitive to even think of winning the cup.

    Koo's despair was clearly shown last night, wasn't too happy with the way they are playing and probably still not trusting TBH that much. It was like night and day, between this performance and their All-England winning form last year.
