what i mean is when a player or a pair grabs a big title (depend on their individual goals set)
how they take it from there matters a lot...
something like this:
as you progress deeper into a tournament you are going to meet better and better player/pair
if you are nobody, nobody will take a note on you
if you have just become somebody, everybody will be keeping an eye on you!
so in actual fact, after you grab a title, its a start of a new beginning
its like 'welcome to the club'
and its going to be harder
in training, in discipline oneself/themselves .....

CPS/LKW got outfoxed by INA veterans Chandra/Luluk 21-17, 10-21, 15-21 like I feared. Study the weaknesses, improve & hopefully they will beat the uncles the next time round.
Next, CPS will fy to India for Commonwealth, after that Asian Games - in XD. LKW will play in Vietnam Open, MD partnering Chooi KM, XD partnering Lim Yin Loo. I hope BAM will add LKW's name for AG, max is 10 male players

just for now.. the 3 pairs are on a yo yo spree.. i wonder which pair will come out of this rut and start winning more.

So, who is better among the three then?
I was very impressed by Mak/Tan at the start of the opening game, but after the interval the Chinese showed their true class, keep pressuring and Tan made a lot of mistakes towards the end to allow the Chinese to level it at 18-18... they were 12-6 up... After that, the Chinese never looked back, made less errors and kept pressuring the Malaysians to make mistakes. Mak/Tan got a lapse of concentration some times, I feel.

See.. CONSISTENT again is the KEY..
No point creating upset and then the next round or tournament losing out early..
they need to be consistent.

Kok Siang-Wei Shem set to be major players in national team
PETALING JAYA: Back-up men’s pair Teo Kok Siang-Goh Wei Shem may not be in the squad for the Commonwealth Games and Asian Games.
But they are set to be major players in the national badminton team if their commitment in training and some good results in international tournaments are anything to go by.
At the China Masters two weeks ago, Kok Siang-Wei Shem did well to upset top seeds Fang Chieh-min-Lee Sheng-mu of Taiwan to reach their first Super Series quarter-finals. They went down to compatriots Chan Peng Soon-Lim Khin Wah.
Now, they will be out to win a first Open title – at the Vietnam Open, which will be held at Ho Chi Minh City from Oct 5-10.
Kok Siang-Wei Shem are one of the three national back-up pair in training undercoach Tan Kim Her. The others are Mak Hee Chun-Tan Wee Kiong and Peng Soon-Khim Wah.
Former world junior champion Kok Siang said that their ultimate goal was to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics.
“It was an important breakthrough for Wei Shem and I at the China Masters. It showed that we have the potential to go far. We just need to continue to work hard at it,” he said.
“We have our own strength but currently, we are trying to add more variety to our game. We do not want our game to be too predictable.”
The duo were teamed up early this year and they have showed some significant imprvement in their game since coming under the charge of Kim Her.
Said Wei Shem: “Our coach gives us a lot of confidence and he instils in us self-belief. But of course, he also pushes us to the limit in training. We train three sessions daily.
“Our hope is to make the Olympics. Currently, there are two other better pairs in the team. We push and encourage each other in training. It is a good training environment.”
In the Vietnam Open, Kok Siang-Wei Shem have an opening match against third seeds Yohan Hadikusumo Wiratama-Wong Wai Hong of Hong Kong.
The top two seeds are Malaysian independent pairs Choong Tan Fook-Lee Wan Wah and Gan Teik Chai-Tan Bin Shen.

GWS/TKS will feature in both Vietnam GP and INA GP Gold. GWS will also play XD.
While CPS is away at Commonwealth, LKW will partner Chooi Kah Meng in MD, XD with his new partner Lim Yin Loo. But I see LKW's name only at Vietnam GP, in Indonesia the other 2 slots given to other back up.
Mak/TWK will not participate this 2 GP, most likely will go Denmark & France SS instead, as preparation for AG.

I am doubt for Mak/Tan to win anythings in AG.....and CWG besides maybe team event in CWG....if fortunate enough for our ladies to perform well.
TKS/GWS has more chnces as most great pairs will skip these GPs for CWG and AG preparation.

Among the Asia countries, if not mistaken only Msia, Spore, India are in CWG. Plus : The top pairs normally dont participate in GP, GP Gold, they go SS only. In INA Open, Kido will be there, partner Sigit
