I don't think the Chinese pair was arrogant last nite, when they destroyed the Indonesian pair in the first set, they just seemed trying to blow off some of the steam and pressure as the homecountry ace for winning the gold in this tournament, the pressure must be quite paramount for them. When the game was finished, they truly acted like gentlemen, whether in the closing out moment right after the defeat by waiting the Indonesian pair in the net and congratulating them generously, also in the following medal ceremony, they didn't look like a sore loser and arrogant people in my eyes.

Btw, i was watching the end of the 2nd set and the whole 3rd set of the MD Final in the subway waiting area. I was planning to hop on the subway to head back to my lodging, but was stuck there watching the last set.

Only some arrogant fans trying to create unfounded animosity and friction between players to make themself feel better. ie, they need to make other feel bad so they can feel good. If only their hero players know what kind of fans they are, they would sure like to distant these fans at all costs.

Deserving WR#1, WC Champ, OG Champ. May they have many more years of good baddy.
And yes I agree, FU/Cai are gracious, dont remember them not being gracious though. Angry with themselves yes, breaking their own racket, yes but they're ok.

Now, with the Olympics Gold Medal and the World Championships title safely stored inside the trophy cabinet, I hope our Golden pair will continue their excellent performance and humble attitude and not let the stardom affect them.
Here's a list of ST and LT goals that I think we can expect from Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan:
With an impending rest after the Olympics, they should return back to action in the Japan (Sep 16-21) and China Masters Super Series (Sep 23-28). Considering their excellent form in China, I think we can probably expect a good challenge there. The Japan Open title will also be a good addition to their list of triumphs.
Then, they will fly off to Europe and compete in the Denmark (Oct 21-26) and French Super Series (Sep 28-Nov 02). INA pairs traditionally do not do well in Europe, so, even going into the Final of these events will be considered a good achievements. Of course, a title will be very much welcomed.
The last 2 Opens of the year will be their favorite hunting-grounds, China (18-23 Nov) and Hong Kong Super Series (25-30 Nov). It's almost surreal to think that they have a 20-0 record in these 2 events for the past 2 years So, expect at least 1 more title here.
No doubt, the biggest events will be the All-England and the Sudirman Cup Mixed Team Championships. With the recent resurgence of INA WS and WD players, INA should have a fighting chance of winning back the Sudirman Cup (with strong challenges from CHN and KOR as usual).
The World Championships will also return after a 2 years absence (due to the Olympics), however, I think I would prefer another INA pair to win it this time round (Rian Sukmawan/Yonathan Suryatama Dasuki perhaps?)
Winning a couple of Super Series titles that they never won before should also be their priorities, like: Korea, Singapore, Japan, and China Masters (if they still couldn't win it this year); plus the few SS in Europes.
The 2 big events will be the Asian Games (Team & Individual) as well as the Thomas Cup. Since Asian Games will be held in Guangzhou (the place where they won 2 China Open titles), it bodes well for their prospect here! Thomas Cup will be a long-shot, but, if there are other Singles and Doubles players rising up within the next 2 years, who knows.....

2008 INA National Championships, a Mixed Team event [like Sudirman Cup], where Kido-Hendra will represent their club, PB. Jaya Raya. Jaya Raya is the defending champion, having won the last event in Medan 2006.
2008 INA Superliga Badminton, the Men's Team event [like Thomas Cup]. Kido-Hendra will be joined by Candra Wijaya and Joko Riadi.

kido/setiawan strategy works very well in this tournament
after witnessing so many matches of them, they frequently give low ball to their opponent and forcing their opponent to give high ball where they can smash!.
