    It seems they have absolutely no confidence when facing KKK/TBH. They were doomed to lose even before the game started. What the hell. This definitely is not a champion spirit. When CY/FHF were beaten by KKK/TBH time after time, they still had confidence and were full of fighting spirit, that's why they can revenge when KKK/TBH's form dropped.

    Kido/Setiawan should talk to some psychiatrist. :cool:

    KKK/TBH can easily be defeated by Luluk/Alven
    Luluk/Alven can easily be defeated by Fu/Cai
    Fu/Cai can easily be defeated by WWW/TTF
    WWW/TTF can easily be defeated by Kido/Hendra

    Koo and Tan appear to be Kido and Setiawan's blind spot....

    As an observation, they looked so serious compared to KKK-TBH. Maybe they were too tense.

    Thats not true...MK/HS did not play well especially MK's smashes were not sharp at all and MK's netting was horrible......that affected HS' play....give them time and they will come back..may be KKK/TBH's style does not fit well with MK/HS...it is common that pair A can beat pair C, but pair B beats pair A then Pair C beats pair B....

    All of the above CAN bet all of the other doubles teams :p

    The margins in MD (especially with the 21 scoring) is rather small..;)

    That's the 6th time Markis and Hendra lost to Koo and Tan..
    They might meet each other again in French Open Semifinals.

    1) WWW/TTF?? - I suppose you mean LWW/CTF?
    Lee/Choong lost to Kido/Setiawan once this year and once last year(as far as I remember).

    2) I understand your point, maybe 1st line should be KKK/TBH can be easily defeated by Fu/Cai. Last 2 meetings, KKK/TBH lost to Fu/Cai. They lost to Luluk/Alvent only once, won at least 2x (AG finals and one of the early rounds of SS).

    You have a point there.. beaten once or twice is not as bad as beaten 6 times. Too bad KKK/TBH lost in the WC... if they did win against the Japanese... i'm sure they are the WChamps. Well its already pass... *sigh*

    Well, they learnt and improve. On a different note, you're right about KKK/TBH not at their best. KKK said so in the after match interview. Seems he haven't fully recover from flu and had blisters on his feet. If they had to play against Fu/Cai in the finals they might not have won.

    Just came back from Changsha and only to learn that once again, Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan have lost to Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong :mad: On record, that's their fourth defeat to the MAS pair. In addition, Kido/Hendra suffered two more defeats at the Asian Games and the friendly match pre Sudirman Cup. So, 0-6 :cool:

    I didn't watch the match but looking at the scoreline, its about the same as the Macau Open semi-final, which is pretty disheartening. They appear to have lost their confidence even before the match started :mad: At least, Hendra A. Gunawan/Joko Riyadi managed to push Koo/Tan pretty hard in their second round match. On the contrary, Kido/Hendra surrendered meekly :cool:

    X-Ball made a good point when he said that Kido/Hendra looked too serious and tense when facing Koo/Tan. In fact, this was mentioned by Sigit Pamungkas in his post match analysis with the pair after the Macau Open. Yet, Kido/Hendra still never learnt their lesson :mad:

    ctjcad was also right in saying that Koo/Tan would be their achilles heel in the effort to win a gold medal at the Olympics next year. Unless Kido/Hendra can find a way to beat Koo/Tan (or at least take a set off them in the upcoming French Open if both pairs do progress to the SF again), then, they better hope that they are not drawn against Koo/Tan in the same half :cool:

    it's all very relative.
    some people find it harder to play against A than against B, just because their style of play perhaps accentuates your weaknesses. MK/HS are an amazing pair, their accomplishments this year speaks for itself. every player/pair/team has a bogey opponent, in any sport.
