    Rashid have been given too Many players? Rather it was him whom took in too many players.

    Rashid is still yet to be in the spotlight of the media. 2010-12 is a long way to go. They should start acting like the future national squad & the future national singles head coach. Not as a 'back up squad' 7 back up squad coach.

    Prior to this, I have never met a head coach so eager to release his best charges to another head coach.

    Its a strange world we live in.

    That should be in the PO Draw.. not on James Chua's thread.

    I have the impression that he is kinda egoistic. Yesterday's match he even told the coach no need to watch him play. Anyhow, misbun was watching him at the side of the bench with me. Misbun was not even sitting at the coach chair in the court. Not that he don't want to.. but James say no need. hahah...

    James Chua Lost to Boonsak Ponsana. He played well... but Boonsak was even better.

    Not entirely unexpected, considering Boonsak's recent form. Wonder whether Boonsak has completed his studies and is now a full-fledged lawyer? If so, he can concentrate better in full-time training.

    Boonsak has been around for a while now and he had scalped many top players -- he plays strong and keeps coming back : that is the best part of his play. If he gets a degree together with his badminton accolades, we salute and congratulate him.

    Boonsak is an awesome player !!!

    James Chua and Boonsak Ponsana are on different levels. "Not entirely unexpected" is an understatement.

    Well 3 Malaysians, 2 Hongkongers, one each from Thailand, Vietnam and England entered the MS quarterfinals.

    Of the three Malaysians, only Hafiz is in the national team, the other two, Ayob Sainul Amar and Hashim Rosliin are not in the national training squad!

    Those national trainees under Li Mao, namely James Chua, Yogendran and Kuan Beng Hong (new tansfer) were knocked out during R16.

    Detailed results, which can be found on this PO website are:

    Hashim Hafiz (MAS) beat Kendrick Lee (SIN) 21-14, 21-13 (27"),
    in turn beat Anup Sridhar 20-21, 21-19, 21-19 (51")

    Chan Yan Kit (HK)beat Lee Tsung Tseng (MAS) 8-21, 21-18, 21-10 (52")
    in turn beat Rai Raju (US) 21-11, 22-20 (35")

    (This doesn't bode well for Tsung Tseng, I'm afraid. :(

    Boonsak Ponsana (THA) beat James Chua (MAS) 21-8, 21-12 (27") rather easily!
    in turn beat Jeffer Rosobin (INA) 21-17, 21-16 (35")

    Andrew Smith (ENG) beat Khrishnan Yogendran (MAS) 21-11, 21-13 (25")
    in turn beat Raffn Bo (DEN) 21-18, 21-11 (32")

    The Englishmen have caught up slowly, but surely! :D

    Hashim Roslin (MAS) beat Anand Chetan (IND) 21-18, 22-24, 24-21 (53")
    in turn beat Ismail Saman (MAS) 19-21, 21-8, 21-19 (46")

    Three cheers for hard-core veteran Roslin! ;)

    Nguyen Tien Minh (VIE) bt Kuan Beng Hong (MAS) 21-11, 21-14 (30")
    in turn beat Kashyap P (IND) 21-9, 21-2 (20")

    NTM is now a force to reckon with, so is Vietnam! :rolleyes:

    Ayob Sainul Amar (MAS) beat Sapkul Chananart (THA) 21-13, 21-14 (35")
    in turn beat Ohtsuka Shinga (JAP) 21-10, 21-9 (33")

    Kudos to another old warrior!

    Ng Wei (HK) beat Bhat Arvind (IND) 21-13, 21-11 (30")
    in turn beat Jamie Juno (PHI) 21-16, 21-13 (28")

    Not bad for the Filipino!

    Go Boonsak Ponsana, and win the title. He is one of my favorite players. I like the way he plays, awesome man, full of creativity.

    You are most knowledgeable! But not to disappoint too much for those who feel that James could be a "giant-killer"! :)

    Agreed....Boonsak is now just below the top players such as Lin Dan or LCW. James Chua??? I think even Nguyen Tien Minh will beat him.
