    Those overheads really got KJ as he could not get down fast enough to scoop up the missiles. The last few points in Set 1 and the second half of Set 2 were Hafiz all the way.
    That's 2 on the trot. Can he take the Japan Open next week?

    Malaysian MS is really shining bright now, Lee CW, Hafiz are 22, and Kuan is 21, with WCH and Rosling being seniors and playing supporting roles.

    However, I cannot say the same for MD, though there a couple of young ones coming through, but nowhere near the other powers.

    Anyway, I think the Chinese really fear the Malaysian MS, especially Hafiz.

    Just looked at the tape measure. Hafiz is 6' 2"+ and KJ is nearly 6' 3".

    Now mixed doubles

    The mixed doubles should be very interesting.
    Opposing two young and upcoming pairs : Thomas Laybourn and Kamilla Rytter Juhl (danish champions and still waiting for a first WGP title) on one side, the new korean stars Lee Jae Jin and Lee Hyo Jung on the other, replacing mighty Kim/Ra as the new korean top MX pair...

    Lee/Lee must be pumped up after each already pocketed a Final. I hope they don't put Laybourn/Juhl to the sword like Lee/Jung did to Rasmussen/Lungaard in MD. The Korean MD and XD factory seems able to continue producing champions with the WD only less spectacular.

    Good result for Hafiz, nice to see him having consistency. Can't wait to see him play. Still a long way to go until Anaheim though.

    Hafiz really played well through out the whole game. Controlling the tempo. His style kind of laid back. If he can be more consistent with fire.. i think this will bring him to a higher level.

    Lee/Lee won it 15-12 15-12.

    That's definately a good tournament for Lee Jae Jin! :D

    Not exactly slew them did they? Just won comfortably enough. Does that mean the 3 tournaments won by Korea MD, WD, XD featured the same 2 players? How did Lee Jae Jin develop so fast ( 2 years) playing both MD and XD when the famous SangY/ZhengB got stuck playing only the MD in the last 4 years? LYB must consult the Korean badmintorn doubles doctors or better, shrink!!

    Lee Jaejin and Jung Jaesung come from the same university as Kim Dongmoon and Ha Taekwon and the new coaches of the National squad Tank Kim Her, Yoo Yongsung and Ha Taekwon have been a real inspiration. Especially the Malaysian coach Tan Kim Her must be really excellent like Li Mao in Malaysia as young doubles players told me.

    Tan Kim Her was a top Malaysian MD player years ago. Must be over 50 or even 60 now. Coaching Korea ? Why has the Malaysian BA not got him or kept him home if he is so good that a top MD country like Korea would pay good money for his advice? Y

    Tan Kim Her, the former member of the Malaysian National Squad is not that old, he is just 34 years old and is known as the expert on training young players. At the Olympic Games in Atlanta he reached the MD semifinals. Last December during the Indonesian Open the Korean chief trainer Kim Joongsoo offered him a post as chief MD trainer. His monthly remuneration is supposed to account for 5000 US$.
