Daren at best we can hope for becomes a Foo Kok Keong. Late boomer whipping boy who became a torment to Zhao, Eddy, Ardy, and Alan K.

I would like to give advise to Daren. Take heed of Ting Hien Hiow's advise. When you have opportunity to play the attacking smash shot, take it 80 % of the time. Every rally that you play must be to set up that attacking shots. If your line smash is bad. smash straight or further from the line. Prefer overhead smash to back hand lob. If you have to use back hand use a drop or drive.
How many times have you seen DL was in position to smash but played a weak shot instead and this after he has played about 7 to 9 rally shot?

His style of play is still too 'soft' from what I can see... perhaps he need to do more weigh lifting or push up?

I watched him play in the axiata cup semis against taufik and simon. His defence is very very weak. couldnt retrieve most of taufik and simon's smashes.
its probably the lack of confidence, he just wasnt himself in the first game against the two. only began to play attacking game in the second and i can see if he had done so from the beginning, the games would have been much closer.

also, i noticed in the game against simon, he was trying to mimick LCW. the way chong wei stands to receive a serve (he always has a high elbow position on his right hand), the way he wipes sweat off his forehead with just his fingers, etc...
unfortunately, the end game result was very different if LCW was the one playing.
i dont get it, whats the point of mimicking such actions??? just be yourself, DL. and play to your strength, which is to play offensively and put the pressure on opponents. I cud see some of your good play, if only you do it consistently.
I know easier said than done, but just my observation. Or maybe i observed wrongly...

Liew Daren seems really pissed about his defeat to HS Prannoy in the Malaysian GP Gold. Kept complaining that the umpire and linesmen cheated him of 5 points in the match and according to nokh88, he got a red card for his attitude.
Although I can understand his frustration of losing points at the crucial stages especially in two very, very tight matches... Daren should just accept it and move on. Things like this happen in badminton all the time, even LCW got this kind of treatment against CWF when he was cheated of 2 clear points... No point dwelling and cursing about it but focus to do better in the next tournament!

FYI...my friend told me the umpire was from Sri Lanka and from the features, he look like one.. Hehe.

right now Daren Liew has took up 1st MS for MAS team after LCW got serious injury during MAS vs DEN. As for CHN vs MAS tonight, DL will either up against Lin Dan or Chen Long (sure is Lin Dan), and that.........

We can dream on but Liew will only win if God were to be fair and smite LD with the same stroke he hit LCW. But then LD is GOD!!!!!!
