    Congratulations to them and to the US for winning the Men's Doubles WC 2005 Finals! :D (and for making history!!!)

    I hope that their win will finally boost the popularity of badminton in the US (and I hope this will give badminton the respect it deserves). :D

    This also proves that height is no longer an issue to be successful in badminton. Howard Bach is only 167cm. I wonder what kind of training he's been through to compensate his height.

    Best what could happen



    I am a fan of Sigit and Candra and have known them for nearly 10 years, but the win of Tony/ Howard is the best what could happen to our sport. And I hope, that the US-sports-media will report this great success and put it on the frontpages. Badminton can only grow, if the sport is accepted in the USA and become there a real sport and not any more an BBQ-sport. And one word to Sigit and Candra: Keep on playing for the next Thomas-Cup!! Kamu Bisa - Indonesia. Bring the cup home!

    u r raising matter that is personal. WHAT TONY DOES IS NONE OF YOUR BIZNESS. You dont own tony, INA dont own tony. Dont keep creating posts and threads with political and religious slant. BTW, have u seen tony mouth yet? U r accusing somebody without even witnessing it yet.

    When Mods are back, you post should and would be erased.
