While everybody is speculating that TH, LD, LCW, BCL will be the likely contenders for the forthcoming WC men's singles crown in KL, don't write off Sony Dwi Kuncoro, who demolished compatriot TH 15-12, 15-5, almost 5 years ago at the Asian Badminton Championships in Bangkok's Nimibutr Gymnasium for his first major title and US$11,000 prize money. During that tournament Malaysia's Hafiz Hashim and LCW crashed out in the QF and R3 respectively. Unfortunately LD and BCL did not compete. Another surprise was when Zhou Mi outlasted Zhang Ning 6-11, 11-3, 11-8 for the WS title. So will upsets continue in the WC 2007? It will be interesting and I will not want to miss the action in KL!
