    Default Luo Ying / Luo Yu

    Are Luo Ying / Luo Yu twins? I watched them play in the Singapore Open and thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. Probably confusing for the umpire as well.

    If they are twins are they the first professional twins in the history of badminton?

    Yes, they are twins. We will see more of them in the future.

    I don't know if any of the Sidek pairs were twins.
    Probably not.

    But Malaysia had a top professional pair who didn't get the attention they deserved.
    They were the Yap twins - Yap Yee Guan and Yap Hee Huck.
    Unfortunately, they didn't get picked to represent Malaysia at the 1996 Atlanta Games.

    Sarawak has a pair of twins waiting to break into the Malaysian side.
    They are the 19-year-old Lau brothers - Adam Lau and Alfred Lau.

    By the way, Hendra Setiawan has twins: Richard Setiawan and Richele Setiawan.
    They were born in February this year.
    Perhaps, one day, they will be Mixed Doubles Champions

    Henri Hurskainen of Sweden is famous as the Unknown Sedin.
    He made news a few years ago for his uncanny resemblance to the Sedin twins (Henrik and Daniel) who play for the Vancouver Canucks

    yes , there twins and they play very malignant as they are dressed and have the same accessories and i guess its based on the confusion so that their opponents find some difficulty in recognize who is who and on who to play...
