    one can say that they tried to thrown the match.
    I did commented during the match the unfored errors by them and they even bother to try in the second!

    I dont believe this.

    Why would they not try? What is their reason? They owned the other two pairs in their pool, but lose to JJS/LYD because JJS/LYD is BETTER. Don't make excuses for them.

    They have no reason to lose. Now that they're up against the strong Thai and Cai/Fu, they'll lose anyway

    If they were smart they would try to win that game and stay in the bottom half of the draw, THEN they might have a chance to reach the final. Now it looks like they'll have to play Thai, China and even JJS/LYD IF they manage to get into the final

    Can't agree more! Although the thai pair has a lower ranking compared to the Indonesians, personally I feel they are more dangerous opponents with their explosive/aggressive attacking play. KKK/TBH may not have an edge over them. Even if they get past the thai pair, CY/FHF is an major hurdle to cross.. Hence, it may not be a bad thing to top their group..

    The BCers who said they lose to JJS/LYD to conserve energy are probably in DENIAL about the fact KKK/TBH are no longer one of the top pairs in the world for the past 2-3 years and they won't be anymore judging how other pairs have improved and studied KKK/TBH game.

    The title of this thread just explains it all.

    koo and tan are still firmly a top 8 pairing IMO.

    but let's face it, there is a clear gulf in class between them and the koreans at the moment (and they have some kind of wierd fundamental match up problem with Koo and Yoo!!)

    Koo-Tan fall in last group match but still make the last eight
    Malaysia’s Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong lost their last group match to South Korea’s Chung Jae-sung and Lee Yong-dae 21-16, 21-11 on Tuesday – but they still made the quarter-finals of the badminton event.
    The Malaysians, who ended up as group runners-up after the loss, will take on the Thai pair of Isara Bodin-Jongjit Maneepong at the Wembley Arena today for a place in the last four.
    The last group match was of no significance as both the pairs – Kien Keat-Boon Heong and Jae-sung-Yong-dae – had already qualified for the quarter-finals.
    Malaysia went into the match knowing that they had a choice as to who they wanted to play in the last eight – the Thais or Indonesia’s Mohd Ahsan-Bona Septano.
    Excusable defeat: Malaysians Koo Kien Keat (front) and Tan Boon Heong in action against Koreans Chung Jae-sung and Lee Yong-dae on Tuesday.
    But Kien Keat and Boon Heong said it never crossed their minds to lose on purpose.
    Kien Keat said they wanted to win because “that would have allowed us to avoid top seeds Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng of China later on”.
    “We did not play to lose ... it’s just that we lost to opponents who are technically superior.
    “We will now use the one-day break to recharge for the quarter-finals,” he said.
    But Kien Keat admitted that they played poorly against the world No. 2 pair from South Korea on Tuesday.
    “The Koreans were simply better on the day,” he said, vowing to raise their game against the Thais today.
    The Malaysians had beaten the Thais in the 2009 SEA Games.
    “The Thai pair showed promise back in 2009 and have been playing well here too,” said Boon Heong.
    “They have defeated fancied pairs from South Korea and Indonesia to top their group, so we must show them respect and tread with caution.”
    Doubles coach Tan Kim Her described the loss to the Koreans as “useful”.
    “We tried a couple of things and it worked initially.
    “But the Koreans were able to read Koo-Tan’s game and countered very well, putting our boys on the back foot. So there are lessons we can learn from the match,” he said.

    and so it was answered in 2 games

    they seem more determined, fit, lean, mean, and hungry to win... a new and improved version... almost reminescent of their 2007 ae form

    obviously the thai boys were less experienced, but koo tan nevertheless had very healthy 7 point leads going into the intervals

    Actually Koo/Tan is lucky to beat the THA pair la

    they came back from 6-15 to make it 17-19 and MAS coaches look pretty scared at that moment.

    Only experience help Koo/Tan to win... otherwise it was bye bye to Koo/Tan by a whisker.

    I prefer the THA pair go through actually because they could surprise Cai/FU and JJS/LYD whereas Koo/Tan surely lose in straight sets to them because everyone knows their game well.
