    Similary, if Kido/Hendra were to become champion:
    SF: Beat KKK/TBH
    Final: Beat Fu/Cai

    -- this will be the best tourney for them....eclipsing the World Championships 2006 and China Open 2006 (beat Fu/Cai comprehensively in front of their home crowd).

    hmm... everything will be decided today. Will KKK TBH choke or will Markis and Hendra go away humiliated like the koreans?

    my take on malaysian chokings:

    Normally Markis/Hendra will choke against Koo/Tan, not the other way round :D

    Exactly...I would rate Fu/Cai, Kido/Hendra, KKK/TBH EQUALLY and to a certain degree, all the top pairs can only dominate in certain periods of the year due to the intense competition.

    I am prepared mentally if Kido/Hendra were to lose today and I have a feeling they would due to fatigue of participating in 3 tourneys with only less than a week of break in between :cool: I will let the Malaysians celebrate tonight...:D

    BUT...if Kido/Hendra were to win........hmmm.......:rolleyes:

    Ok...I am off to Macau to join Rudy Huang now....

    i just read from kompas newspaper, kido/setiawan will play "nekat" it means they will play all out.. the key to beat kkk/tbh is don't let them lead too far.. kkk/tbh often win by straight sets with big gap .. tight points often stumble them

    Fu/Cai may have trouble against LWW/CTF, recent head to head records favors the Malaysian pair.

    but you see, this pair rarely play each other. The only 2 recent matches i remember are the WC and the singapore open, with their records 1-1.

    Whatever the outcomes today, it will be exciting matches in MD.
    Kido/Setiawan is not in peak form yet...talked to Kido and he wanted to fight as they have nothing to lose to KKK/TBH . They have lost few times to MAS...I asked if there is any strategy to play MAS? he said " NO"...just fight...KKK/TBH looks very relax in few days..thats good sign for MAS.

    that's exactly what they said in kompas " tidak ada strategi khusus, hanya main nekat aja"... don't forget to cheer kido/setiawan (i'm sure badmania will be the person who cheer aloud :)) although you'll have to opposite with fastdrop :p :D

    Depends on how LWW/CTF play their G1.If they play relax or defensive(to burn up Fu/Cai's jet fuel), the match is in their favour if they achieve match point before 60mins (cos that's their Cinderalla time) LWW/CTF must just let G1 be short, doesn't matter if they lose like 21-13. If G1 scores like 21-18 in their favour,match is likely to exceed 60mins and their energy level and concentration drop drastically and loss would be in the air.

    i really doubt Fu/Cai's stamina on attack will affect it much...they do have enough stamina to go past 60 minutes if anything...but if it goes attack vs attack...then i might say Fu/Cai will be in trouble...their defence has been a little off as of late IMO...so if LWW/CTF play defensively oriented to try and take away the stamina, it means they'll focus less on their attack...but my point being, giving the attack to Fu/Cai is like playing with fire...which i do hope happens ^^...Fu/Cai will burn them up ^^

    KKK/TBH beat Kido/Setiawan in straight sets. Very fast play, over in about 25 minutes.

    And yup, we already discussed that in another thread. 1st quarter of the year was to Msia, 2nd quarter to China, 3rd quarter to Indonesia. Interesting they seem to take turns. 4th quarter........ we shall see.

    And thanks again on the the info and analysis on Kido/Setiawan in the other thread.

    2. CY/FHF
