    Outstanding performance from the Malaysian Stable winning both Single's and Doubles Finals. Haven't seen both in Podium for such a long time. :) At least a confidence booster for them at the upcoming sea games.

    Great to have my fav japs girls winning the Ladies doubles.! :)

    Yes, LCW deserved his win, after a close call in the first game when he almost lost to Hafiz. Both players gave of their best and there were a number of long and exciting rallies that really sapped their energies.

    IMO, it was the first game that decided the winner and LCW just managed to come up on top. Although Hafiz seemed to be not as fit, he gave a good account of himself and covered the court well. But the first game exacted too much from him and he succumbed in the second and the match rather timidly.

    Maybe the 'jaguh kampung tag' should not continue to plague LCW as he has now won a 5* IBF event on foreign soil, but here again, his opponent is a fellow countryman. It would have proven beyond doubt if his rival in the final were a non-Malaysian. But, I'm sure this wait would not be too long! ;)

    In the MD Final, Chong & Koo did well against Lars & JR, but one could sense that the latter pair was somewhat not in unison with their actions and thoughts. They were a far cry from winning their first and only WC a few years ago and the talk about their imminent breakup must now be for real. So CCM & KKK need to further prove themselves in another major, maybe in the forthcoming SEA Games with the Indonesians in attendance.

    On the other hand, the winning WD Japanese pair of Shiota & Ogura impressed greatly when they beat their English opponents quite convincely and this must due in part to the contribution by Park Joo Bong, the world renowned Korean doubles specialist, who had also coached the Malaysians not too long ago. In general the doubles department of the Japanese team, both for men and women, have shown vast improvement!

    It would not be fair not to mention the tireless effort of the Chinese ladies featured in the WS final. Both of these ex-China players were dropped from the Chinese national team owing to their lack of height, but boy have they GROWN tall in stature in their respectively adopted countries, Pi Hongyan for France and Xu for Germany. Yes, they really fought tooth and nail but in the end, it was the more tenacious Pi who triumphed. They both knew each other's game rather well as their encounters in the past have been like a see-saw. I'm sure many of us who watched the proceedings on the telly were totally surprised by the long rallies and the gasps for oxygen time and again by these two ex-compatriots. A fantastic display indeed! :D

    With both Hafiz and LCW on form, they are favourites for the men's singles title. Both are noth afraid of either Sony or Simon. Sony is still recovering from his injury and we will see how he perform in the upcoming HK Open. If he can beat Hafiz in the third round, he stands a chance of defending his gold medal which he won in Vietnam 2 years ago.

    As for CCM/KKK, it will be a tough battle against either Luluk/Alven or Markis/Hendra. Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah stands a higher chance of retaining their doubles crown. They have a good record against Luluk/Alven.

    Ooh...and yeah...the Jap girls are now becoming my favourite ladies doubles pair, apart from maybe Lee/Lee.

    well i think we can't say that for sure... whenver the top 10 (even 20) players play against each other it'd always be very close.

    it is fair to say that lindan-taufik-LCW's matches are 50-50, while when they play the rest might be 55-45, IMHO

    Yes, I agree that with so many top quality contenders for the title, it is not easy to predict the outright winner. Much has to depend on their form on the competition day itself. Hopefully, none of them will be affected by injury or bouts of food poisoning, etc, otherwise their chance of success will turn from good to bad overnight. :mad:

    But we should all be able to enjoy some fantastic badminton next weekend when, hopefully, live telecasts of the Semis and Finals of the Hong Kong Open will be available in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. :)
