    Default Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk is Indonesian!

    At least that's what Badminton England thinks: http://www.allenglandbadminton.com/today11.htm

    That's just a typo error. That shows the editor knows little info before writing the article

    I get mad about stuff like this because these people get paid for not doing their homework and writing wrong stuff. If you work for Badminton England and post articles to the official website of the AE, then you should at least know what country Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk is from.

    I don't think it's just a typo. A typo would've maybe been "Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk of Tahiland" or even mentioning Indonesia just once, but the guy (girl?) mentioned it twice! That means he/she was convinced that Saensomboonsuk is Indonesian...

    It was funny when I saw it yesterday, but now it's just sad.

    lol I didn't even know that "tahi" means something in Malay, but after you laughed I realized it must mean something so I looked it up on Google Translate

    Why did he give a walkover? Was he injured?
