    What prizes are they giving out to Lin Dan and Xie Xingfang just now? My Mandarin is not really good, I think I heard something like favourite male and female player for this tournament is it?

    Kido/Setiawan used the same tactic like Tony/Candra used to beat Cai/Fu, they play lots of nets and fast drives. Playing nets and fast drives like that is typical Indonesian doubles styles, Cai/Fu are not used to it, they like to play the power style instead. So Cai/Fu had no option to avoid Kido/Setiawan fast drives and traded it by playing long shots, but they had to play defense more, Kido/Setiawan's offense is not bad, that's why they still managed to beat Cai/Fu. I predicted that Kido/Setiawan could beat Cai/Fu when I saw them playing in QF, they improved their game and played more consistently.

    This is the tactic that the Indonesian coach used yesterday when Luluk/Alvent were playing against Cai/Fu, but Luluk/Alvent couldn't win, I guess Luluk played bad.

    Congrats INA MD, you showed the world your genetic ... :)

    It's an embarassment for Cai/Fu to lose at home.

    True, the Indons played a very smart game. Kido's smashed is quite powerful too, this guy has a small built but can seriously jump REALLY high up!

    There are many doubles players like Kido in local clubs in Indonesia, small, fast, and powerful. Sometimes you can't understand where the power is coming from, they jump very high too. Usually, they partner these players with a little bit taller and skinny player, or another short player, so there are 2 Kidos on the court :D Player like Hendra Setiawan is not that typical in Indonesia, he's taller than average.

    They play amazingly fast doubles player, sliced nets, half court push, fast drives, drives return smash, and strong attacks. You can't lift to these players, they will kill it before you can see the bird. I played with these kind of players before, and it was intense, but fun. :)

    why BCL lost

    Bao Chunlai ousts Lin Dan to enter China Open badminton final



    Bao Chunlai came over from one set down to beat fellow Chinese Lin Dan in the men's singles semifinal of the China Open badminton championshipsin Guangzhu on Saturday.

    Bao outclassed world champion Lin 18-21, 21-19 and 21-10.

    After losing the first set where Lin displayed his fast footwork and trick shots, Bao stayed calm as both players reached 7-7, but was far behind again 9-17 in a moment.

    However, the Korea Open winner didn't give up and clawed back point by point to 15-17 in a row and played better and better to win the set 21-19.

    In the third set, Lin lost his rhythm and made many unforced errors while Bao improved his pace on the court and absolutely back to his best to seal the match 21-10.

    "I am so excited that I beat Lin Dan. Last time I won over him was in 2001," said Bao, "I won't be happier even if I win the title tomorrow.

    "In the second set when I was 9-17 behind, I felt that I should do something different other than just giving up. And then I did what I wished. Lin may lose his confidence after I won the second set."

    I thought the last time he won over Lin Dan is in 2004 (Japan Open):confused: ... Then the next day he was beaten by Ronald Susilo:( ... Conclusion: Beating Lin Dan is bad luck:p ...

    I think they will. They are more all-rounded players than Fu/Cai.

    I totally agree with u about the fast drives they do to beat CaiFu. Setiawan works wonder at the front net and he also has effective backhand drives. As for Kido, he is the Flying Predator shooting all his preys...:p:p:p

    YESSS!!!! Well done Kido/Setiawan. You have shown them who is the boss. It seems Kido/Setiawan have a good records this year when playing in China. First they won the Hongkong Open which a lot of Indonesians have bad records and now China Open. I think the last foreigner (MD) to win here in China Open is Candra/Sigit in 2004? or is it 2005? Can't remember.
    Anyway, well done.

    Looking at the built of Kido, people will expect him to be guarding the net, but he is the one doing most of the smashing. Setiawan is seriously fast in front of the net. Looking good for the future now. What Indo needs right now is another YOUNG MD pair to back Kido/Setiawan. Luluk/Alvent partnership is finished. They should split and work with different partner instead.
