Players Analysis : Mohd Arif vs Chen Long
Team Event 15 Jul 07 – 18 Jul 07
ARIF Latif gave Malaysia the winning point as the hosts beat China 3-0 to lift the Asian Junior Championships mixed team title at the Juara Stadium in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday. Arif beat Chen Long 21-19, 22-20 to give Malaysia the winning point.
This sweet story of the talented and agile youngster, Mohd Arif, was one of the strong points that i predict that Malaysia could have another World Class player in the future. Meanwhile China prodigy, Chen Long, who beat him twice before this in the Melbourne Youth Olympic in the same year, also looks to have a bright future ahead of him.
3 Years had past and it seems Mohd Arif is missing the boat and drifting away quickly while Chen Long, has now established himself as one of the serious contender in any BWF Super Series.These are their stats: Chen Long vs Mohd Arif
Korea Open Super Series - Semi Final
Proton Malaysia Open Super Series - 1st Round
All England Super Series - 2nd Round
Swiss Open Super Series - Runner Up
Thomas Cup 2010 - 3rd Single player
Bit Burger 2010 - Champion
China Master Super Series - Runner Up
BWF Current Ranking : 9
Super Series Ranking : 7
Korea Open Super Series - Qualifying Round
Proton Malaysia Open Super Series - Qualifying Round
Malaysia Open GP - 1st Round
Macau Open - 1st Round
Chinese Taipei GP - 2nd Round
BWF Current Ranking : 118
Super Series Ranking : 65
At the present moment, Chen Long, as the same batch with Mohd Arif and one of China's young players, has able to positioned himself among the World Top 10 player while Mohd Arif is no where near it. I hope BAM should be seriously worried about this.

Yes.. a very good comparison indeed.. that show's perhaps BAM or arif himself failed to groom himself..
Another slap in the face for BAM?

Let just pray that Zulfadli, Iskandar, Misbun Ramdan and many more current youth players does not end up like this...

In talent, training, coaching and funding, MAS is not inferior to CHN or any other country. One thing that differs is MAS players get complacent as there is a lack of internal competition among themselves. HH despite his poor performance knows that besides LCW, he is still the 2nd best player in MAS. Even WCH is still counted on for TC.
In CHN, especially MS and WS which are ultra competitive, a junior player like CL has to prove himself to be a standout and to make CHN in a short period of time or risk being kicked out. Unlike MAS which is banking on a small group of young players like Ramdan, Arif, etc, CHN has abundance of young players coming up. Li Xue Ri would be a star in MAS, but in CHN, her star is dimming fast. Even JYJ could not play in UC, WC or OLY. WL is out for 6 mth, I am betting she will not defend her crown in WC11 and that makes her the 3rd WS champion from CHN in a row to be out of WC. With stiff competition in CHN, making CHN team far more pressure than facing the competition. It is simply too many superstars or stars in CHN fighting for 2,3 or most 4 spots in major competition. So, if CL can survive in CHN, he has to keep improving otherwise there is WZM, Chou nibbing at his toes. Just my take.
If you think MS is tough in CHN, try WS, I can't imagine how tough it is to make CHN team, that is why, many CHN players have opted to play for France, HK, Germany, Macau...and probably can play as long as they want...with no competition and a safe job.

why not start a thread between lydia cheah and wang yi han?

Nice work Shooting Stroke !
my point on it is that the difference can come from the fact that the Chinese staff sometimes lie about the age of the players...
then Chen Long should be older than his 'official' age, and have a few years of training in addition.....

shows the difference in:-
- Junior / Age group tournaments with Open Tournaments
- Individual Potential to grow further
- Limitation in Physique
- Attitude towards the game / sport

Agree with jug8man,
Through training, one can improve his/her technical skills, physical, tactical etc. What is actually lacking comparing arif to CL? Experience? talent? attitude? coach? mentally maybe..?
Most match result are decided by how fast could one adapt and counter their opponent's game. Nowadays badminton tactical are quickly mix during games not like before. One have to be unpredictable in games. I think Arif has the ability and talent but does he himself work hard enough to improve further.
I wondered, malaysian are hoping that he could someday fill up the shoes left by LCW. But does he ever thought of the same? To become world's best player...

- Don't have the determination to work hard as to improve them self like Datuk LCW
- Don't able to sustain the highest level of commitment towards self improvements like
- Don't have the high level of self discipline like Datuk LCW
- Don't have the world class mentality and attitude to become a world class player like
Datuk LCW ( i know what you did last Thomas cup fairurizuan)
- They don't realise that under their very nose that the best example to emulate in
becoming a world class player is always with them that is Datuk LCW
- BAM should have a KPI method to pin down hard on them so that they will know that
donning the national shirt is not a simple issue

Yes, but they also should have one of the highest Player Burn Out / Crash Out stats if they are not careful. But injuries can come any time out of the blue so I guess we can't stop progress...
However... We must understand that this kind of 'comparison' is very LINEAR.
Besides the issue of Ultimate Potential, which is yet to be determined (unless you can see into the future or read a persons DNA like a pro), The Rate of Players Progress is another factor to consider.
We can not expect players of the same age to 'blossom' at the same time and pace. Sometimes we must consider the possibility that there will be 'Late Bloomers' among the pack.
The only question now is... Do we (or more importantly BAM) trully believe that Arif may at least fall into this Category? And is the Measure of the 'Bloom' (i.e. ultimate potential) significant enough to Invest all that Time, effort, attention and Govt Tax Money in for Many Years To Come?
Not my call to make. Weeeeeeeee

Ariff drifting away from his peers or other similar batch of player from other countries or any Malaysia backup players that are also drifting away from their equivalent peers from other countries just pointing to one concrete fact that they are not progreessing forward but backward currently, regardless whatever method used or scenario that has happen.

Thus... The only proper gauge we can use is assessing player's ATTITUDE = 100%

I think its Bam's fault. I have been following Tanongsak, Tago, Alamsyah and Rumbaka career. They are play in in the SS. Badminton is a sparring game.
The more u spare with higher grade players the more u improve.
I hardly see the m'sians in the 20/21 years old batch playing in the SS.
Even those in the 23/24 batch could hardly get to smell the court in an SS tournament.
Now they just train and spar amongst themselves.
How to improve like that.
Chen Long get to spar with Lin Dan Bao and Chen Jin.
And the fact that there are better players waiting to grab your spot makes you push harder other wise u go back to the provinces.
Even Du Peng Yu, Lu Yi would be phased out at the "official" age of 22. Wang Zhenming is coming to the fore.
But BAM always get their priority mixed up.
Junior Doubles players get to go to SS tournaments and look how they have improved.
And that also BAM reluctantly allowing the juniors to play more international matches this year.
Look at the Taiwanese No.1 and No.2 pair. They been playing in the SS and GP regularly for the past 2 years and their results speak for themselves. Remember the Taiwamses still train part time.
Their singles although not benefitting from full time training and physical conditioning that will make them world champions cam from time to time getting upset results. This is because they are playing top flight baddy more often then Msian juniors. Our Back up and Juniors srtruugle to beat Taiwanese or even the Indian top singles or couldnt beat them at all.
I dont see Iskandar and Ramdan in the SS but I see Alamsyah whom they could beat easily last year. Dont think they can beat him this year or next cause the formers are still cocoon in training.
