    I wouldn't say this. Of course MAS badminton is far ahead of USA!

    I think he had some successes before. Problem is MAS has too many good players.
    So do we expect your son to be better and represent USA in the future?

    Better don't let Chan know, otherwise your son will be put to some grueling warm ups before training! :eek:

    Maybe not much employment opportunity in MAS life after baddy, also with MAS on the brink of bankrupt USD vrs ringgit is surely enticing;)
    As for Sing swallow by US of A, are you kidding??? one look at US of A massive debt and perpetual trillion USD deficit, Sing said forget it, you fellas think we Sing people are mabok-ar:p

    Is Halim Haryanto the oldest player in this tournament? He's 41 and won the World Championships back in 2001

    More like KBC is already 30 and his standard is far below current MAS squad.
    Even if MAS badminton is "hopeless", the talent is there, only mentality is what set them apart, not location.

    It was reported that Sing's debt is higher than MAS's.
    But Sing borrows from its own people through CPF...never ending discussion and complaint on this one! :p

    True, Sing debt is highest in the world, more than USA. But the real debt is zero. USA debt is real, the interest financing alone can support the Chinese annual military budget.

    Lin Dan match was going to Court 4 per schedule But the Organisers delayed his match for 10 minutes just for US, so we can see COURT 1 Lin Dan

    Me to organisers
