Reading the situation of badminton in Vietnam, it made me wonder it had lot in common with India pre Saina Nehwal breakthrough. Prakash Padukone and Gopichand won All England but that didn't catalyse the growth of Indian badminton. Even worse, Gopichand had to mortgage his property and fight a case against state government to open his academy which is the fulcrum of Indian Badminton. And after the players started winning tournaments (SN and Kashyap), governmment started to give credit to badminton. Situation of NTM is pitiful. Man, he stayed in top 10 for quite a time and he still has to ask for help. I think if NTM starts an academy and produces great players , then Vietnam Government will start noticing. Vietnam and India are quite alike. Football in Vietnam is same like Cricket in India. I hope Vietnam also produces good competitive players in future.
