    I hope it is not only his comment... I hope it is a deja vu for his performance here in TC10... I still think that TH played his best badminton in Anaheim, not in OG04...

    Yeah, in Anaheim five years ago en route to grab WC title, TH beat two current best MS LCW and LD in last four and final respectively. It's really hard to repeat it again...

    Sony Pullout Fails to Derail Indonesians

    Kuala Lumpur. For the second day in a row, Indonesia’s march toward glory in Malaysia hit unexpected resistance.

    Its Thomas Cup squad clinched top spot in Group D after a 4-1 defeat of India at the Bukit Jalil Sports Complex on Monday, but the victory came at a price.

    No. 2 men’s singles shuttler Sony Dwi Kuncoro had to retire against Arvind Bhatt, suffering a recurrence of the back injury that has plagued him throughout his career and could cut short his stay in Kuala Lumpur.

    “Sony started to feel his long-time injury again during the second game, so he decided not to continue,” said Jacob Rusdianto, Indonesia’s Thomas Cup team manager.

    Sony, 25, retired while trailing Bhatt 15-9 in the second game, having won the first 21-19.

    He suffered the same injury last year during the All England Super Series and spent two months in recovery.
