    Err, I don't think you realize that IND immigrants outnumber CHN, MAS, INA or THA these days in SGP...

    But please don't reveal that SGP's every new iteration of sports planning/management has been **** -- and let players who are neglected by their birth country give SGP a chance...ORZ

    Excalty : he was there to set up the base, a professionnal structure. He did. Now it's up to french coaches and players to take profit of it, if they want to raise on badminton planet.

    Lin Dan left out of Thomas Cup Lineup by China.

    QIAO Bin replaces him. The entire First team choices play. Qiao Bin impressed coaches in Thomas Cup Simulation match, especially Xia Xuanze as he almost defeated Lin Dan in two straight games. Head coach Xia Xuanze and doubles coach Zheng Bo took great notice of him.


    Further news coming FROM weibo would be posted soon.

    lol.... Well done Singapore, after the China wave, now you have Indian wave.

    I thought they alway want to keep the Chinese at 70%?

    I don't think it is a wise decision for him to migrate to Singapore unless Mulyo is permanently there as a coach. India is a better choice where there are more players to practise and compete against.

    Personally, the teenager Laksya Sen is a talent, after watching a few of his matches. The potential is there, how far he will go remains to be seen. Let time tell.

    Btw, he's certainly not the only 16/17-year-old MS player to watch, of which some of us have our own picks, for me, it's 17-yr-old Kunlavut Vitidsarn atm. In that match, it's clear Lin Dan underestimated and took Sen likely at first but the moment he reasserted himself in G2, the old man simply put the young aspirant in his place in commanding fashion, particularly evident in G3.

    No problem, SGP is transit port for immigrants as well as oil/goods -- they need to keep up immigration rates because they keep losing people -- so the "native" population/culture is quite stable....

    Just watching the video from IND vs FRA : someone knows who is the second coach of France? He looks asian, but I don't know him, and never seen him before with FRA. Speaking english, he is obviously not an asian french.

    Let's move on. NZ Open was ages ago for me. No point bringing it up again or else you know that someone will be going on and on and on like Celine Dion.

    Angus Ng did well to prevail in G1 against Momota, 21-15, but after that he seemed less sure of himself as the latter tightened his game to come out tops in the end. Perhaps Momota was feeling the tension in the opening match as he probably very much wanted to deliver the first point for Team JPN.

    Because they don't have the confidences that LD could win the match on court 4? :D

    Can't wait to see the next session.
    Who will be the MD2 btw?

    At last, India took 1 point in DOUBLES. I thought Canada will beat India with 3-0 after seeing Saina losing to Li.

    Indeed, not worth dwelling on it further. Cheers.

    I think it's more like the CHN coaches want to test Qiao Bin's readiness in a safe opening tie. As we know, Team Championships have a different logic of its own from Individual Championships - the pressure of the burden of expectation, the nerves, can get into you, very few players actually thrive in such situations.

    Very Strange Decision,

    Today was a great day to check and get used to the drift and hall conditions before crucial match vs France tomorrow

    Corvee and Popov Junior are no pushovers whatsoever and have great coaches accompanying them. Lin Dan would be disappointed.

    Has Qiao Bin improved his stamina so much to be the automatic third choice? We shall see in today's match.
