    Macao Open will decide who will be the new world number 1. The Indonesian pair snatched WR1 after a good showing in Taipei. However, only 300 points separate 1 and 2 and a further 400 separate 2 and 3... In contrast, WR4(TG/CW) is trailing KKK TBH (3) by 12000 points...

    GO KKK TBH!!!

    That mean FHF/CY will lose point if they cant defend their title here.....KKK/TBH have to go into Final to over take MK/HS....provided FHF/CY fail to enter Final:p.....to become WR No. 1.....that's tough...tough....for KKK/TBH recent form....:eek:

    But for MK/HS ...they just need to defeat FHF/CY in the Final...to stay on top of the World.....it will be easier for them...if FHF/CY fail to enter Final...:D

    As for FHF/CY.....only one way...to stay at WR No. 2 ...is to defend their title in Macau......;)... Is that RIGHT ?

    Fu Haifeng/Cai Yun DON'T HAVE to defend their title since their points for Macau Open 2006 HAVE ALREADY BEEN DEDUCTED.

    Fu/Cai WILL GET ADDITIONAL POINTS as long as they qualify for QF (3600 pts, the lowest in the events this year, which they get in Malaysia Open SS 2007) and they are almost likely to progress beyond QF.

    The similar situation goes for Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong. They WILL GET ADDITIONAL POINTS as long as they progress past Round 1/16, which is also pretty much guaranteed. They will face a stern test only in the QF against either Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae or Guo Zhendong/Xie Zhongbo or

    Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan's lowest achievement this year is QF in a SS event (5040 pts). So, if they lost before QF, Macau Open WILL NOT BE COUNTED in their rankings. IF, they fulfill their seeding and lost in the SF, there will be additional 1320 ranking pts.

    So, assuming Kido/Hendra lost in SF and Fu/Cai + KKK/TBH progress to the Final (as expected), they will climb above Kido/Hendra in the rankings table.

    yup, it seems more likely that either CY/FHF or KKK/TBH will get the no.1 spot off MK/HS. both of them only have to get pack round 1/16 to add to their points tally, can't really see either failing to do so. my money's on the CHN pair though.

    on a separate note, i wish they wouldn't give points to team events like the thomas, uber or sudirman cup. how are those points awarded anyways? does it mean that if one's team wins the competition one will get the total team points even if one doesn't win any of one's games? that's fairly unrealistic if that's the case.

    A tricky question, but, I don't think they will still remain in the no 1 spot IF Fu Haifeng/Cai Yun also progress to the Finals.

    its not like that, for team competitions, its a bit more complicated. Every opponent you play, you get 10% of their ranking points if you lose. If you win, you get 20% (or something like that) of their ranking points. So at the end of the day, you add up all the ranking points earned during all the matches you played and then bingo... you get your team points

    TG/CW's era is over.TG attack is not as dangerous as when he was mentioned to be the best player in MD.He plays best when he's paired with Halim Haryanto.HH is the wall breaker!
    For Candra,I prefer CW,esp when he paired with SH.Candra/Sigit is best combo ever!Hope they can be pair again sometime in the future.

    These two pairs met before,in ALL ENGLAND 2001 final.U should check out the match,in youtube.That's the best MD match i've ever watched.

    For this champinship,i am not so convinced in KKK/TBH's performance these days,compared to kido/hendra's.I guess Malay's older pair does better than the younger pairs these days.So,i guess the final is gonna be between kido/hendra n CY/FHF..

    I do agree that Tony/Candra's best years are not now.BUT, they still show that they are one of the top pair in the World, clincing one Super Series title this year.

    Candra/Sigit vs Tony/Halim's match during the AE Final 2001 was certainly explosive...those are the days.

    Kido/Hendra have to prove that they are not a flash in the pan...and time is on their side. For them to be considered a really world class pair (in the league of Candra/Sigit or Tony/Candra), they have to WIN the All-England, some Super-Series titles, help INA regain the Thomas Cup and hopefully either an Olympics Gold or Asian Games Gold. There's still a lot of homework...but...I still have confidence in them.

    all in all, the who ever wins Macau Open (either MK/HS, CY/FHF or KKK/TBH) will be No. 1 most probably.. hehe :D
