    As a fan of Kido/Hendra, its also quite depressing to see Japanese pairs (which Kido/Hendra never have problems with so far), Luluk/Alvent, and now a Chinese-Taipei pair (who got beaten by both Luluk/Alvent and AG/Hendra) capable of upsetting Koo/Tan, and yet, Kido/Hendra never even capable of forcing a close match in all their encounters this year :crying:

    They should study how these pairs manage to beat Koo/Tan :cool:

    I think Rexy has no time to upset now but he must be busy figure out what is the problem with Koo/Tan and solve it immediately...

    KKK/TBH have the tendency to lose to lower ranked pairs or unknown players.....however....it's not really a problem for them to beat top pairs like MK/HS....Maybe they are too overconfident and underestimate their opponents...if that's the case, they had better learned their lesson.

    my report on Malaysia's performance today:




    Day 2 of the China Open proceeded with marginally less upsets than day 1, although several major hiccups have emerged.

    The most severe hiccup was that of the departure of first seeds and world number 1 Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong in the hands of a relatively unknown Taiwanese pair in two tame sets. It seems that even the first round opponent of the Taiwanese were able to put up a better fight, going down in 3 tight sets. Instead, the hot favorites for the title shockingly went down tamely to this relative unknown. The emerging trend in this pair is that they have no problem in sweeping past known seeded pairs, while relative unknowns seem to trouble them. Lack of respect or psychological weakness, I am sure doubles coach Rexy Manaiky will address this problem. Hopefully he will be successful.

    Hafiz Hashim's comeback to the elite club of shuttlers seem to have taken a heavy blow today. With the departure of top seed Lin Dan, Hashim's path to the quarterfinals could not have been any easier. However, Hashim lost to Korean Park Sung Hwan, Lin Dan's conquerer in 3 sets despite leading crucially in the 2nd and 3rd set; not being able to close up the game. With chance number 1 blown, Hashim better hope he performs more convincingly in Hong Kong next week.

    It's not the 1st time. But in other tourneys, at least one of them is in form. That's how they won Denmark Open. Watching the game, both seemed unfocused. There are some similarities too Fu/Cai in 1st round. For FU/Cai, like they're tired, dont have strength to chase the shuttle. In KKK/TBH case, more like they mentally tired, no strength to read the game.

    Both KKK and TBH did say(KKK in his blog, TBH in in intv before leaving for China) their fitness level dropped a lot since European tour.

    In conclusion
    KIDO/HENDRA ; CTF/LWW > Fu/Chai
    FU /CHAI = KOO/TAN
    FU/CHAI > JJS/LYD
    KOO/TAN > KIDO/HENDRA
    KOO TAN < Any lower ranks pair

    If in that case Rexy should not hv send them to both CO and HKO, whats the point letting them go with such poor form? These humiliating defeats might further damage their confidence

    Badmania, oh Badmania, dont be sad.
    1) Rexy's from Indonesia, so he knows how to beat them and teach his players the needed strategies. + there are 6 Msia MD pairs mah. Sure to meet one of them along the tourney.

    2) Rexy & other coaches have discussed and found ways to beat China pairs.
    Confirmed yesterday at post-match intv with Zakry/Fairuz(RTM) : " Kami cuba tak beri peluang mereka smash sebab pair China pandai smash."

    When concentrating how to beat top pairs, pulak left out the lower rank pairs = Japanese, Taiwanese, etc

    I also watched the game just now...In the first set,they did not convert the opportunity by having a good lead and this cause they loss focus in the second set.They are totally out of form today,making a lot of unforced error and i agree with you that they are mentally tired.Hopefully they can overcome this big obstacle...
