    Or could they be worried about me representing Canada and kick their rear-end in the future?:D Not likely, consider that I am 30 years old now.:p

    Seriously, the Korean WD(Lee/Lee) has improved so much, that just in HK open 2005, they were owned by YW/ZJW, and now they are fighting head to head.

    Lee Yong Dae in both MD and XD are amazing! Too bad, he ain't good enough to beat Hafiz in MS.:p:crying:

    There is nothing much tactical games in the korean doubles.. Smashes over smashes from begining right to the end of rallies.

    It's an upset in a sense, but they are all seeded and not far in ranking.

    In order to smash, one must force a lift... how you force the lift is considered tactical. Plus where you smash or to whom you smash to, is a tactic as well.

    Otherwise, the whole game of tennis isn't much tactics either, it is always a lot of forehand, or backhand stroke to the far end of the other side.
