    I am glad Ahsan/Hendra have proved you wrong big time. They get it done 21-15 21-12 that is a great performance!

    I still dont understand with MA/HS performance it seems like everybody can beat them not just one but many time but at the same time they can outplayed the best MD in this world.

    Ahsan/Hendra seem to perform much better in important tournaments, against top ranked players

    Wow, surprising MD1 result, total reverse from yesterday's performance.
    Advantage INA.

    I have so much confidence on Ginting to deliver this like he delivered one in the Asia Team Championship vs. JPN, Nishimoto.

    Kinda wonder what happened to lyd/yys great defensive play. Seems today all ahsan's smashes can easily get through their defense

    Ahsan/Setiawan only turn up when it matters. Been a trend for their entire partnership. If they can win the Olympics this year, it would probably be the greatest "clutch" partnership in the history of any sport.

    Damn, I wanted to bet on MA/HS as i was sure they will win today but was too late :/. Today Kims would have been the better choice, but ofc how to drop world no.1...
    Now it can easily go either way. MS2 slight advantage for INA, MD2 is a need for Korea, as Im quite sure Korea wont win both MS...

    I am afraid HS/MA now only have interest to give their best against big names. :(

    Hendra and Ahsan lost to young pairs in the past few tournaments but they seem powered up when they face LYD/YYS. Ahsan seems like he is very energetic in this game when his attitude is the losing factor in the past few tournaments.

    Maybe they still tired after last night game against Fu/Zhang. It was a very long and exhausting game. And they had fewer time to rest(compare to Hendra-Ahsan)

    That's how true masters roll.

    Why waste energy on pointless games when you win big ones instead?! :)

    Actually the answer has already been written on the wall. If a team has to play grueling 5 hours matches at night till late midnight then reach the lodging place at wee early morning hours, then not enough of rest. Never mind after that play afternoon match the next day, 1 pm. How to win? Logic explain everything. I wonder why BWF can allow such a poor scheduling for Thomas Uber Cup event.



    I am not giving excuses but this might have contributed to the losr of LYD / YYS. Anyway I am not a sour grape and won't whine on this. Anyway congratulations to Mohd Ahsan / Hendra Setiawan for winning the match today. Sincerely congratulations. :)

    Hendra is the best front court player by far, as shown time and time again on most important situations.

    LYD can only dream to have his composure and big match abilities.

    As usual WSX has several opportunities to smash but chooses not to, and in the end gets into trouble.

    If this come to 5th match, I don't think JHJ can beat Ihsan.
