Oh...are u admiting now that Jung/Lee are fearful of the European pairs, like what you wrote earlier? Remember, Paaske/Rasmussen did beat Jung/Lee in the Thomas Cup? But but but..u can argue that Paake/Rasmussen are no longer a top fear so, the Korean pair didn't fear them? But.....look at what happen at the Olympics? LOL.....ah...so contradictory....LOL.
Instead, I think Kido/Hendra did fear Koo/Tan because of the atrocious head-to-head of 0-6 against the MAS pair. Yet, that fear didn't translate into a defeat, instead, the INA pair was so motivated to beat their nemesis and eventually overcame all odds and won! Similarly, losing twice to Jung/Lee earlier this year doesn't mean that the INA pair will lose again, should these 2 pairs met in the Olympics SF.
Once again fear != no confidence != defeat, because the INA pair proved that's not true anyway

Fu/Cai vs Jung/Lee = 3-1 (in fact, the Thomas Cup victory was the first for the Korean in the past 2 years).
Oh....Luluk/Alvent vs Jung/Lee = 2-0 Wow....I guess Jung/Lee must be fearful of Luluk/Alvent too

The real sad part of reality is that no matter how dominant or how many titles MK/HS can be/win... they can only be recognize as great badminton players, but not superstars or celebrities like Lin Dan, Beckham, Federer, and etc.
The cruel of reality remains that besides being great at the sport you choose, appearance(market-ability) is needed in order to reach even a higher level of success(in terms of $$$ and fame).

Contrast her reputation with the number of people in Asia who would know who Bode Miller is, or the same folks in North America who can tell what sport Viswanāthan Anand is the champion of.
Then again, what does all of these got to do with badminton?

Guys here are saying that they are all from INA.
- I meant "recent" as "this year" of 2008 if you rightly understand current nature of badminton world.
- in 2006, 2007, LYD was just 17~19 yrs old under learning the styles of the world top players as I told, if you want to still live in the past. (Even when he got his first Olympic Gold, he was still 19 yrs old. Did anyone achieve this when he or she was teen? I don't know. The reason I say this is he has an excuse why he lost to the danes. In 2008, he conquered the asian styles of INA, MAS, and CHN.)
- The point is: Why MK/HS lost to JJS/LYD two times in a row this year??? any answer? Just watch the videos again. Will you say... "NOW it's different.. they are not like KKK/TBH..."?? (I'm not saying about the danes. Just head-to-head between them.)
They should still have fears for JJS/LYD wondering if they can win next, although it might be reduced a bit after Olympic.

Why can't we compare LYD/JJS record against the Danes? Perhaps because they've quite an abysmal record and being "CONQUERED" by the veteran Danish pair? Afraid to see the truth ?
Living in the past? Fact is LYD/JJS failed miserably at their last international event, whihc just happen to be the #1 event in the badminton world, that's barely 2 months ago. How's that for recent glory? And what did JJS got for reward? An enlistment in the army too boot.

Go and read what I wrote if you have difficulty to understand what I meant.
I know we are discussing about MK/HS's future and I am arguing their major obstacle should be JJS/LYD as we saw their matches this year, (if you understand THIS year's results are MORE meaningful than last year's to predict future). I'm talking about head-to-head between the two teams. Why are you saying 3rd parties? (I can also mention all losts of MK/HS if you need.) Still can't understand???
