Please read back 2008 posts. The general consensus was Kido/Hendra were not in good form in 2008 compared to Fu/Cai, LYD/JJS. Fu/Cai and LYD/JJS were the favourites with Kido/Hendra 3rd. Kido/Hendra only won 2008 Msia SS while LYD/JJS were going in as the 2008 AE champ(plus other SS). This is considered pretty low key considering they were 2007 WC champ. In 2010 AG, that is the surprise of surprises, they did not perform well that year, including a tournament a few weeks before Asian Games. Plus they had gone independent. Once again the favourites were Fu/Cai, LYD/JJS to win the MD. End up, both pairs didnt reach finals, the pair most unexpected to win won it.
