    Hopefully they can. Marcus/Chris is strong and experienced. Only time will tell.

    The first four mentioned look good, Sun Feixiang making little headway so far. Still early to say though who among them will rise above the rest and get into top 8/10 within the next one, two years.

    As far as playing style is concerned, I like Lu Guangzu, Ren Pengbo and Zhao Junpeng's more but Zhou Zeqi is the most thinking player of the lot. No comments on Sun Feixiang's atm as he hasn't shown any significant progress but in his junior days, he impressed me.

    Still Zhou Zeqi who is usually fairly cool,calm and collected can lose his patience and become frustrated into making uncharacteristic errors as when he played Lee Hyun Il at the Macau Open Final just now, unable to read the master's game and being moved all over the place and getting caught off-guard now and then, esp in G1. However, he's smart enough and learn fast to put up a better fight in G2. Frankly, he reminds me of Du Pengyu.

    Thanks for the info. He is good, BAI should get him back into the national team.

    Has potential, fast and aggressive, just like Goh V Shem/Tan Wee Kiong and the INA hotshot pair, Marcus/Kevin.

    If they can stay consistent, that is. From what I am seeing in this tournament, their performance is not terribly good.
    Well, perhaps they are too inexperienced. What I hope is they can mature and be consistent.

    Most MAS players tend to play very well, at their best or even above themselves when they are not under pressure to deliver in the tournaments with little at stake.

    Both but more of a compliment this time, as Vivian Hoo and Yap Cheng Wen is still a relatively new pairing, if I'm not wrong.

    If only BAI could be more productive like CBA. However, BAI is doing good work lately but still not enough in WS and doubles area. New leadership is good , it will take some more years.

    And no TV broadcast too, yet the SaarLorLux Open FB page is trying to say that they can't stream it on Youtube because of TV rights

    Aaron/Soh with a good job to save G1 from 16-20 to 23-21. What I expect is a beat down in G2, so I hope they can keep
    their head cool and play consistently.
