    Default Malaysian shuttlers not performing

    In a recent article the Malysian shuttlers are not performing when it matters most, for instance in the recent All England Men doubles semi finals. They are said to take things for granted i.e their status
    But a week later in the Swiss open - what happens, the men's singles is an all Malaysian affair...
    Any comments?

    all credits to the Malaysian champions. however, we must also look objectively, the top players in the world other than Taufik did not compete in the Swiss Open. eg. Hendrawan, Peter Gade, Ji, Xia. so Swiss Open is not a real fair test and any conclusion based on it alone may be premature.

    but in any case, hopefully the wins will be a confidence boost to the Malaysian crew and we will see more good results from them in the future.

    I agree with u, but I think that with Singapore, it is partly because there's no talent, and no parent would encourage them to be come an athlete of any kind, whether they have talent or not.

    Its actually a pity that Malaysia haven't been performing to what their actually capable of right now.

    I think the only reason why it was an all Malaysian affair in the final was because there wern't very many top class players participating..... eg Ji Xinpeng, Xia Xuanze, Hendrawan and if Taufik played his best it would be a completely new game......

    But anyway, congrats to Hashim for taking the title!

    It is exactly the same in malaysia.Some time ago a Malaysian

    team manager when asked why his players cannot think replied

    that badminton players are not very bright, that's why they play

    the game for a living, otherwise they can be Engineers or

    doctors etc.

    Wow! Sharp comment but a bit tactless, coming fr the team manager.... I dun think you can call someone *stupid* juz coz they do sports for a living... in Korea, a lot of their players are graduates eg. Kim Dong Moon, Ra Kyung Min, Yim Kyung Jin... maybe it's different elsewhere. Anyway, I agree with Kwun that the Swiss Open didn't mean much coz of two things:

    1)Absence of top shuttlers
    2)New scoring system which some may not have gotten used to. I remember reading that the Malaysians have already been training under the new system.

    Well, we can only wait and see...
