    Yeah, the first time I saw him in action, it was in the Beijing Olympics. I was very impressed by his play and he nearly beat Bao Chun Lai.

    Last night, kevin has an awesome match facing Chen Long, two thumbs up for him...
    At the 3rd set, during 23-23, it seems that several of Kevin points was due to its smart play. he sets the condition so to make easier for him to score a point or make Chen long did mistakes.

    He sent Chen Long at right hand corner, and finish it with tight net shot...
    BEAUTIFUL....

    He is also a very determined Badminton player and energetic....

    Thumbs up 2011 World Championships (Round 2): Kevin Cordon-vs-Henri Hurskainen (SWE)

    .
    Congratulations to Kevin Cordon for defeating Chen Long at the 2011 World Championships.

    It should hope that Kevin Cordon could defeated Henri Hurskainen (SWE) today. But let's wait and see.

    Henri Hurskainen has also done quite well, defeating Carl Baxter (ENG) quite easily; 21-08, 21-19 in only 34 minutes.

    yup., I saw the CL and Cordon games. Those duece is amazing. The bald headed coach must have prayed the right thing. Cordon is on steroid? lol. Well done. A match of his life. He should have the advantage tonight.

    If LCW wins, he need to thank this guatemalan guy... This is the first time I'm seeing him. If he trains up, he can be a world beater with his left hand. I can see 50% improvements in him.

    the "bald headed coach" is Pedro Yang, also from guatemala. Kevin Cordon has been training with the Spanish team for the last couple of months, and says that this has been key to his improvement.

    I think his coach also prayed a lot. That's why he is successful. So pray people!.

    Today's match LCW VS Kevin gonna be exciting...
    should Kevin performs as he did when facing CL, the match could be held in 3 set. However, if he did perform like he did on Monday, and our Dato still win in 2 set & fast.....like when he disposed PSH yesterday.
    Wow, this is definitely a warning to LD..

    His netting and cross court smash from the forehand is pretty impressive. LCW will have to make sure that he's not lifting to him on the wrong side. I am very sure that Cordon will get about 5 points just smashing cross court to LCW backhand.

    Kevin is not just a star on BC.
    He is also fast becoming a "hit" on Youtube.
    His match with Chen Long has already passed 9,100 views.
    His other videos are also doing well.

    Yeah agreed to that....
    9100 views on Youtube mostly will be accessed by Badminton Fan in China, who was caught by surprise of Chen Long's defeat from a country that less to be known for its badminton reputation.

    Kevin cross court smash is just remarkable, he just need to improve on patience....

    I can be wrong but Kevin will playing his match of his life. I believe that it will take a lot for KC to send LCW packing. However, it will be a great match to watch.

    I've just seen 2 of his matches and am already a fan! Its not just how well he plays, but how he plays the game. Very quiet (unless he wins a big point! ) gentlemanly, attitude. No getting into dramatics with court officials. As far as his game goes, I am totally impressed by his technique, and his ability to maintain perspective: he is always in control of his actions. He is also very aware of the need to maintain and practise proper technique and shape. I think Kevin can really really go far!

    Does anyone know who his coach is?

    Thumbs up 2011 World Championships: Kevin Cordon is one of the best players

    Agree; And it was good that LCW gets to watch KC's previous matches. I believe LCW has already formulated a plan for how to play him.

    It is fantastic that KC has arrived thus far (into the Quarter-Finals). Win or lose against LCW, it doesn't matter; for Kevin Cordon has already shown us he is one of the best players at this 2011 World Championships.

    An article by LA Times, written during the US Open this year...

    http://articles.latimes.com/2011/jul...inton-20110715

    Badminton serves Kevin Cordon's mission

    The sport helps the Guatemalan, who's competing in the U.S. Open Grand Prix event in Orange, in his Olympic quest.

    July 15, 2011|By Lisa Dillman, Los Angeles Times

    Trying to become a Guatemalan futbol star, say, the next Carlos Ruiz (the former Galaxy striker), would have been the understandable path for a certain youngster bursting with athletic talent.
    What, then, if the Olympic Games happened to be the ultimate destination?
    The way Kevin Cordon looked at it: One made a lot more sense than 11. To reach the Olympics, playing soccer, he would need help and a lot of it. Ten other players, in addition to himself, of course.

    There was another sport to potentially get him to the vaunted Olympic stage, having to rely solely on the man in the mirror. He picked badminton, a curious selection considering the pecking order of the sport in his native Guatemala.
    "Why badminton? That's a good question," Cordon said. "One of my dreams was to qualify for the Olympics. So I couldn't do it if I played futbol because with futbol, it is very difficult. With the team, it's not easy. Badminton, I thought, was not [as] difficult. I'd have more chances to qualify."
    There wasn't anyone in his family with stray Yonex rackets sprawled around the house to pave the way.
    "No one. Nobody," he said. "I live very far from Guatemala City, five hours by car. That's interesting because as I tell you before, nobody [really] played."
    Cordon was talking after his third-round singles match this week at the Yonex/OCBC U.S. Open Grand Prix event at the Orange County Badminton Club in Orange. He took his first two matches in straight sets and defeated Dieter Domke of Germany in three sets. In Thursday night's quarterfinals, Cordon was to face Hsuan Yi Hsueh of Taiwan.
    The tournament is one of a series of qualifiers for the 2012 London Olympics, but Cordon said he'd already qualified for that event. He qualified for the Beijing Olympics in 2008 and was the flag carrier at the opening ceremony for his country's 12-member contingent.
    "It was one of the best experiences of my life," he said.
    The 24-year-old has had to take his talent far away from Guatemala to improve. Cordon had been at the national training center in Madrid since March and will be based there until October, leaving shortly before the Pan American Games in Mexico.
    This has led to his educating a lot of his badminton colleagues about his native country.
    "That's the first question they ask me: Where Guatemala is? I just say it is next to Mexico or something like that," Cordon said. "That's really good because now people know where Guatemala is."
    There weren't exactly a lot of national predecessors on the badminton circuit, to be sure.
    Kenneth Erichsen played in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics for Guatemala, and Pedro Yang represented Guatemala in Athens in 2004. Yang happens to be a member of the IOC Athletes Commission and is still active in badminton, losing in the first round of singles and doubles at the U.S. Open in Orange.
    The U.S. Open is something of a sneak preview for the Olympics with about 350 of sport's elite on hand for this event running through Sunday. The skill, finesse and power, all in a confined space, are fairly overwhelming and that helped attract Cordon to the sport.

    "Badminton looks easy," Cordon said. "The sport looks easy. You have to have power, instruction, good technique. You have to be smart. It's not, for example, just running and running."
