    i think it is quite customary for Malaysia press to use people's first name. is it also the case in general in malaysia?

    people like to call LCW : Chong Wei.

    we never hear people in China call BCL Chunlai, we normally heard people use the full name.

    right, kwun. in malaysia its customary to call our friends by their first name.

    i think this applies to other races as well.

    otherwise for some malay names, they are way to long and to call the full name

    would be like pronouncing a to z!

    i am sure some of our malay friends can give an example.

    For China, maybe it is the population. If you just call Chun Lai, maybe one hundred people will stand up and to eliminate confusion, they gradually called people by the full name.

    I saw in a documentary some years ago, China has so many people with the same names with 3 characters and it is creating problems with their registry and they advise people to add one more character to their names. However, there are already surnames like Shangkuan, Situ, Ouyang, WangLin.

    Arrow The universal system is always to place better players in the top half of the draw

    Meanwhile, Wang Xin had the easiest time of the whole tournament beating Tine in the final, so your claim the top half draw is the strongest is another display of your 'university trained' statistician skill.

    See that you have followed me into this thread to attack our universal system (or is it to attack me?).

    The universal system is always to allocate higher ranked players to the top half of the draw.

    err...... i like Ah Bo.
    here is same too. addressing first name is normal for talking to friends. addressing nickname is normal for closer friends.
    if calling name in full with last name, we consider it as rude unless in official matters or ceremonies. so, no mistake in getting this person.

    She's not been in her best form, for at least 6 months.

    Poor WYH is still in a slump. I think it started after her loss in UC final. I really enjoyed watching her play. Look like her career with the national team will be over very soon.

    I was going to add that to my post, but I was out of the 15min limit, so I just couldn't be bothered

    But, yeah if Zhou Mi's ban is upheld, then there is a vacant space in the HK team.

    If you think malay names in full is hard, try calling our east indian/tamil friends' name back home in full...and if you have 10 or more Indian friends, that would be fun trying to remember their names...in full!....memorizing history book would be a lot more easier task.
