    1st round defeat against a qualifier is not ideal in preparation for the Olympic , but the score indicated a nice effort you have put in . The standard nowadays is very high , especially those Asian internationals . Not seen the match but hopefully you will have it on video.

    Quite okay to lose against Setiawan He's only a qualifier because he's got a new partner again...

    They just got smashed by Fischer and Pedersen. At top level, a good working partnership is as important as skills & class ,

    Thanks Toby for those Yonex all England videos. You and Grace played well in the 2nd game ! Too many mistakes from the fore court in the beginning of 3rd , that what costed you the match. However, I seen your brother video as well, and they have some talent and there are alot of positive . Against Cai/Fu , Derrick and Adrian done particularly well , they put up a great fight ! From what I seen , top WR of 10-15 can be in their reach. They might not take a game from Cai/Fu but not many can (maybe one of the top10 pairing), however , the score should be closer to reflect from what was displayed on the court. I hope they can take the positives out of the game against the World champions and build on from there !

    They are one of the friendliest bunch of players around! I wonder if they remembered this moment.

    Yup, I remember that picture in Malaysia. Thanks for the support everyone We are working toward getting as far as we can, but our system simply makes it tough for us unless we keep continuing to do this for a longer time. Unfortunately, I feel many people in Canada don't put in enough time. I know we're all aiming for this Olympics but realistically for Canadian players, we would need to continue playing til 2016 for a chance to start breaking through. The potential may be there, but experience and training wise, I think we need a lot more time as our quality of training here is lower than the countries we would like to beat.

    But there are still some of us who try... so I guess we have another month left before we see who makes it in. Our MD and WD are in difficult positions at the moment, but I hope you will continue to support us

    I mean in England , the LTA (Lawn tennis association) are giving some talentless tennis players in England (with my tax money) who would never make the grade at international level $30K+ per year for expenses. These players have everything, a training camp, accommodation, private education , coaches, travel expenses on top , tax-free $$ from winning challengers competition . At the end of the day non of them would be capable in breaking thru into the world stage and win grand slam . Some of them might be in the world top 10 for juniors but thats as far as they would get. They lack the motivation, professionalism and everything that is required to be champion in senior level. Even Andy Murray does not approve the luxury this players are getting. Some of those even get wild-card (free-pass) at Wimbledon to get more free ranking points.

    In Badminton , it is complete opposite , the funding has decrease in the sport this year and the support of our young players and even our senior players is a complete joke compare those with tennis even in badminton we have more success at the Olympics and other world stage events.

    Sweeet... Tokidoki for the win

    Nonetheless, I would like to share a project I did for our Badminton Canada Players Association. It's quite long, but check the video description for the contents of the video

    Hey Toby, good luck in qualifying for the Olympic, the list is going to be out soon and it looks like there is a good chance you going to be in London !

    Look like all those hard work and those wins at various tournaments had paid off.

    Lets hope your brother can join you as well because he got some real potential , it is such a shame that H.Bach and T.Gunawan are playing in the same continent .

    Lets see if they will fund you for the trip to Olympic ...........looking forward to seeing you all at the open ceremony
