About time too, they should have been paired together much earlier to sort out the understanding between them. Would have been in a much stronger position had they played together since last year or early this year.

Now, this new INA pairing just needs more experience playing against top CHN pairs. Looks like its gonna be Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei and He Hanbin/Ma Jin for the Asian Games and top European pairs (only 3 pairs that have troubled Nova/Butet so much lately: Robert Mateusiak/Nadiezda Zieba, Thomas Laybourn/Kamilla Rytter-Juhl and Joachim Fischer-Nielsen/Christinna Pedersen).
Late 2010-Mid 2011 will be the adjustment and testing periods, while the qualifying period between Mid 2011-Mid 2012 will be the real test. They need to win at least a couple of Super Series to further stamp their credentials.

Yes, new pair always the dangerous in a tournament, like ZN/ZYL in recent AE, like KKK/TBH in last AG......now Lily/Tantowi's turn !!

In the CHN XD front, MJ and YY are the two girls to watch out for... HHB has a very hard smash but lacks the finesse to cover for his usual partner YY. I'm not sure where ZB will be in 2 years. Not much from KOR although I suspect we will continue to see LYD/LHY.

Yes 2 years is enough for the 2 players to bond. Just like how Nova and Butet only needed the one year to win WC title (04-05), and another one 2 years later. However, Im not too convinced that Tantowi would be as successful as Nova in the XD field, surely its still too early to judge on his performances, and 2 wins out of 3 finals isnt bad at all. Tantowi's skills and style is totally different from Nova. Tantowi is more like a hard-hitter with speed, while Nova is a 'master-tactician' playing and mixing a lot of different shots. With this in mind, judging from Tantowi's and Butet's performance in Macau final, Butet seemed to have some worries abt her partner at the rear court, sorta like 'how is he doing at the back?' while when she played with nova, she solely concentrated on her net game. perhaps the bond isnt as strong yet, but hopefully it'll get better.
Speaking of chinese XD army, i think the pair to watch is the lethal combination of Zhao Yunlei and Zhang Nan. Both very young, and both also very skillful...a very strong potential for 2012 OG!

..again, the new Tantowi & Natsir partnership is pretty new to the circuit & they might be having a bit of success as other pairs might not be as familiar with them (e.g. their strengths & weaknesses, tendencies)...Let's give them some time to see if they are indeed a "better" pair than Nova & Natsir..
