Not a surprise and yes, PBSI should think abt splitting them up hmm, i wasn't surprised by this result at all..They've been inconsistent ever since last yr, after a pretty noticeable run in 2004. As a matter of fact, earlier this yr i was calling(in this forum) for both of them to be split up and paired with different partners; i believe just after EngHian/Flandy or Candra/Sigit split? if not just for a temporary change. I think Luluk/Alven both have reached their "max" potential. Personally, from what i've seen on webcast or live, i feel Luluk is the "weaker" link. As for PBSI going out and "fetching TG & CW as freelance etc." back, hmm, no, it won't happen and personally, i don't want it to happen. It's too late. Plus i think that'll sound a bit "desperate". Besides, both are already in their 30s and past "their prime". Personally, the wise move is for PBSI needs to seek and groom younger pairs in hope to compete with the future competitions.
