It's a bit shocking and definitely sad that Koo/Tan lost but at the same time, I think we shouldn't be too negative and start bashing them - saying that fame has gone to their heads, etc etc etc. True or not, they really have been one of our more consistent pairs, and in the world of badminton (and any sport), there's always been winners and losers. Someone had to lose, and if Koo/Tan was slightly off form while Ohtsuka/Masuda were brilliant with their form, then they would emerge victorious. Even world #1, world champs will fall sometimes. I mean remember when the Koo/Tan won the Doha gold medal and Malaysian Open and All England? They were the "new and unheralded" pair then and beat so many top pairs en route to their win. I'm sure the Indonesian/Chinese/Danish press and supporters didn't start bashing their players when they lost to Koo/Tan so as Malaysian fans, we should stick by them rather than criticizing them after a loss. I still remain a avid supporter of Koo/Tan although I do hope they will do better in the next tourney.
