    A bit off topic..

    well, you might be right, X Ball..But even if he goes to WC, next month, he will have a "bull's eye" on his back(not only from the medias, fans alike, but also from LinDan, as he will look to finish the match)..so, for Taufik, might as well skip it, heh??..:p :rolleyes: ;)

    Indeed, seems like the "Who wants to see Taufik Not playing" thread is bigger than any other here >.<

    hehe, sorry for "hyping" it up and making a big stir...maybe we're the only ones from this forum making it "sounds/seems bigger" than what it is(maybe the players, organizers are over it already)..?!?!(shoulder shrugs)..
    crazy isn't it, the guy has been eliminated(by himself) and sent home, yet he's the one making all the "news"..:p :rolleyes: :D

    So,we can only know the upcoming finalists in late night. Only hope for Markis/Hendra plus Nova/Lilyana to step up into finale and win the title after totally failure from one TH's drama episode yesterday.

    I think Taufik would have woken up this morning hating himself for what he did. He needs to check his blood pressure.

    No way! We want the best players at the WC. Though Taufik is not at his best currently, he's still one of the best and when he's at his best, no one can touch him. Unfortunately for us, Taufik is rarely at his best.

    Yes, we definitely want Taufik to play. No way we let him off the hook after all his posturing over the last 6 months and recent hijinx. He said the WC was his target so he he'll have no excuses if he performs poorly. Then we'll see who the real Taufik really is.

    Potential upsets

    I can see two potentially big ones:
    Chen Jin to beat LCW
    Jiang to beat ZN

    Anyone else care to predict upsets?

    Well, basically, he's painted himself into a corner, and this corner is called the WC. No more hiding, no more excuses. He claimed this was the tournament for him and his preparations have been geared towards this.

    I suppose if he performed well, we'd hail him as "the amazing Taufik" and I can live with that. But if he bombs, I don't want to hear any more lame excuses from his blind, fanatical lemmings.

    If LCW played his normal fast and speedy game, beating CJ should not be a problem for him. All the best to him!
