    This highlighted phrase is very familiar. That sounds awfully like what our resident KOR fan's prediction over at the poll thread

    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!

    Great match. However, the loss was very painful, indeed.
    Fantastic match indeed. That's doubles at its highest standard with the most nail-biting deuce. Both teams displayed fantastic determination and dedication and neither should go home feeling ashamed if they lost. FHF/CY won by the thinnest margin -- I could almost see the match going to 30. Saw in the background LinDan was "threatening" to leave already.

    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.

    Quote Originally Posted by narnia View Post

    So, I have only 60% of confidence that the team will get the 2009 WC title.


    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.

    Enjoy~

    oh, so they got the runner up position again this time.. fell short yet another time.. don't worry, they can still try again next year..

    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?

    You can notice it if you just take a look at the ranking-point differences of the top 3 duos - just marginal. The top ranker Kindra is going out from the stage and KKK/TBH have been showing some lacks against JJS/LYD (refer the H2H tables I uploaded at another thread.), the KOR duo has good chance to get to the WR #1 soon.

    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.

    Enjoy~

    You're right, that's the problem with Korea and INA too.

    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.)

    Enjoy~

    ..
    ..don't be surprised by Hendra A.G.'s result. He's been known to be quite inconsistent and unstable even during his heyday with his previous MD partner, Joko Riyadi (who, IMO, is even more inconsistent and unstable). What you should be surprised and can't believe about is if Hendra A.G. actually wins a title. Too bad Vita has to partner with him.
