So, despite their DOMINANCE (based on the head-to-head stats), the KOR pair is still mentally weaker? That just doesn't sound right eh?
Which is why I am saying that it's almost UNTHINKABLE for the KOR pair NOT TO WIN this year's WC, based on our resident KOR fan's infamous "head-to-head" theory, which leads to the DOMINANCE thingy.
But the UNTHINKABLE just did happen yesterday....and that too after the KOR pair wasted several valuable match pts!

It went down a bit to luck indeed. Definitely the most exciting set in WC QF - Final (and perhaps the best in the whole WC2009). Fantastic display from both sides.

This is what I wrote in the poll section of WC2009 of this forum.
As I predicted, they again showed they seemed quite pressured by the big name of the title.
But more than that, their plays in this WC were not their best or rather poor to my view:
1. They barely beat KKK/TBH.
2. They, LYD as well as JJS, made a lot of unforced errors.
Especially, in 2, JJS did some critical mistakes by his usual "loose returns" that were immediately attacked at the net and showed lack of focus at the final stage.
With a minor comment, their special coach HTK should have been there to inspire them more strongly. (On the contray, CHN was supported by JJ and LYB.)
Overall, 28-26 in the rubber set was awesome!
Great work with the Silver Medals again in two consecutive WCs.

By the way, where's HTK yesterday? He didn't made it to Hyderabad together with the korean md team? is he just a part time coach or what?

I'm happy enough to see 3 INA pairs in top 10.
Uh, where are other KOR pairs, if I may ask?
Depending too much on the World Dominator?

But unfortunately, the KOR duo will not participate in the upcoming China Masters due to the treatment of LYD's arm. So, it will be postponed to Japan Open.

On the ranking table, the players with point below 50,000 cannot be comparable with the upper-ranked players. The lower-ranked players are just minors in skills and confidence. They may need more experiences but I'm not sure if they can make it in the future. Actually, I have not been impressed by the lower-ranked two INA teams. I viewed many available matches of them but can't find any edges or something of the top players; they need more focus, consistency, and sensitive control at the net not just hustle speed or jump smashes. (Esp. Hendra Gunawan is good but can't believe why he was so unstable in the Taipei Final in XD. I saw the match and sure Vita and he were superior to their INA opponents. He needs some mental training.)
