    Stringing

    Red,

    Did you ask or notice the cross tension on those 30+ lbs string jobs? Just curious.

    peter,

    at first i've just noticed that was a advance electronic machine with numbers on it. coz u know, for me it's always like "action comes first".
    i looked at that machine whenever i passed by. the numbers was 30 this time, then may be next time is 30 something......after a couple of times with different reading. i realized that it should be the indication of string tension. then i talked to that guy and ask him about his "highest" order. he told me "36". then i said "wow that's amazing!" then i went back to position and shoot.
    that's the story!

    not very fair


    not a very fair comment - think the photo of bobby milroy has more reason to comment on - why does this person in the photo get so much attention

    36lbs.?! What string could take that tension? Has to be 0.70mm or higher. I doubt a 0.69mm or less thickness string could take it.

    Sigh, and I thought you were a badmintonfanatic:D

    Obviously concentrating on the face too much - that's called 'tunnel vision'.:)

    Milroy vs Chen Hong

    I just remember I saw Milroy play against Chen Hong.

    I was very surprised to see Milroy gaining points in the 2nd game. He did play some good shots.

    This is where I see Milroy's weakness:
    He is not fit enough to maintain the changes of speed during the game. It was obvious at the beginning of the 2nd game he didn't have much 'gas in the tank'. There were a number of shots he took too low. Although he played some good shots, quite few of those shots were 'ambitious' shots. They just happened to work well that day. Additionally, I think Chen Hong took his foot off the pedal.

    All in all, seems like Milroy needs abit of more the training routines that concentrate on changes of acceleration. It may be that he does those already, but there seems to be more room for improvement.

    Just like the girl from Australia - I saw her practising (which is how I got the picture). What I found very interesting is that after retrieving a deep backhand by playign a clear, she is very susceptible to a smash placed on her backhand side. I noticed she stands very upright after playing the deep forehand clear. This makes her slower in defending a steep smash aimed at the tramline of her nbackhand side.

    OK, when I see Tania (girl from Australia), I will give her your words of wisdom. :D :p
