does anyone knows wat raquet is nova widianto using?
I suppose, but I bet she doesn't stir me up like Yoyo does. She's the only reason I actually look up at the television for more than a few seconds when a HK series is on.
really dun have any site that can watch the men's single? i dont manage to watch it sigh
George, why do show up now when HKO is already over? We were looking high and low for you........ho, ho, ho........
haiya, i was watching tv live mah....
i cheer for him in front of the tv...
but unfortunately, he lost:crying::crying::crying:
the next time LCW plays, maybe you shouldn't watch or cheer
Look's like Kido/Hendra HAVE PROVEN that they are the worthy Current World Champions, having beaten the 2005 All England and 2006 World Champions Fu Haifeng/Cai Yun and now the 2000 Sydney Olympics Gold Medallists Tony Gunawan/Candra Wijaya, who are both World Champions themselves with Halim Heryanto and Sigit Budiarto respectively.
Not enough Fire to win ???
They had 16 smashes compared to 12 for Tony/Candra in today's Final.
They had 16 smashes compared to 7 for Fu/Cai in yesterday's Semi-Final.
Add the 20 odds smashes for the lesser opponents in the past 3 matches.
MK/HS is a killing machine too
abedeng's comments are always the fairest Indeed, Kido/Hendra did find the going slightly tougher today than yesterday, esp in the second set when they were in the less favoured court Hendra did make a fair number of mistakes and looked a bit hesitant at times. And yes, your prediction went true....the match did go to rubber-set (to the crowds' delight) and Kido/Hendra did manage to establish a healthy 11-5 advantage before returning back to the "nightmare" court.
Fu/Cai gave it to them for free??? LOL...this must be the funniest comments I have read recently
Ok....so today's match have proven that they CAN KILL!
what MK/HS did to FHF/CY was grissly MURDER!!!
FYI, I DID WATCH the QF game. Yes, the game was littered with errors, but, like what I explained in the other thread, once the World Champion upped their tempo and started to play their fast breaks, the Japanese pair was troubled and it was all over very quickly.
Did u watch the game between Flandy/Vita vs the Hongkong pair ? The scoreline might suggested that they struggled...but in reality, it was more of a practice match
That is more like it. It has been a long time since I saw them killing their opponents so quickly. Past few SS have seen them struggling against the lesser pairs, killing them only marginally.
Yesterday, they were up for the match and DID NOT ALLOW the Chinese pair to play the game FROM THE START! That's why the scoreline was kinda surprising to many ppl.
Sorry, I wasn;t being clear - I was referring to the QF in Macau Open.
Was it even relevant to today's match ? They struggled many times in recent months against many pairs....I am not surprised
These are the matches they have struggled against recently:
Chinese Taipei Open R16 against Sakamoto/Ikeda -- 21-17 in rubber-set
The above-mentioned match in Macau Open against Gan/Lin -- 23-21 in rubber-set
Denmark Open R16 against Guo/Xie -- 21-19 in rubber-set
French Open R16 against Logosz/Mateusiak -- 21-18 in rubber-set
China Open QF against Eriksen/Hansen -- 21-16 in rubber-set
What was more relevant was the way they killed off Fu/Cai's challenge so efficiently yesterday and yet many ppl seemed to have disregarded that match and blamed Fu/Cai's indifferent form to a number of excuses
Badmania, congrats again to your heros. Thought you wouldnt come in here tonite, busy celebrating with your favourite MD players.
And yes, looks like in HK Open, Kdio/Setiawan decided to really really go out, it's the last SS of year. In my humble opinion, they even played better than WC Semis & Finals cos Tony & Chandra were all over the court.
The 2 veterans improved much too.
Kido & Setiawan have had the luxury and benefit of watching innumerable matches featuring Tony & Candra... and it's certainly to Tony's and Candra's credit that they could still put up such a stiff fight.
However, it must be said that the younger Indonesians played their heart out.
They played brilliantly.
