    Yeah, I feel that many people are giving too much credit to people that were not there in the field. I think Kelvin Ho is the main guy involved in this success. You wouldn't send the least important guy to the World Championships.

    He would probably make a call to LKY.

    SK had already lost G1. At best he could just equalize to play G3. So how could he have won the gold?

    The word “would” is way too strong, you are just making wild extrapolations.

    I only mean psychologically he would have an advantage.
    It's not like I or anyone can tell the future with certainty.

    That doesn't take anything away from LKY. He was massively impressive. I can't remember when was the last the time in badminton that anyone had such a massive unexpected rise.

    BTW, I always wanted to ask this - are you related to Loh KY?:p

    Loh Kean Yew achieved what Lee Chong Wei could never have done. In fact, Lee Chong Wei bottled it many times even when the world champ is annually now !

    Loh Kean Yew fought like a champ. He never let the previous point loss affect him. He kept fighting and diving against Srikanth's shots. Srikanth's shots are really good but too many unforced errors. The better player wins i guess.

    Good attitude and character by Loh KY on court. This is something LZJ will never learn to develop. The moment i see LZJ flopped against an unfit Chen Long in Tokyo, i know for a fact he will be flop and does not have what it takes to win as a fighter.

    I said "I think" he would. That's just an opinion. Nobody can see the future with certainty.

    I think if Kidambi works towards making less errors, he can regain or at least come closer to his 2017 form.

    I am now very excited for what LKY will achieve in the future.

    Congratulations to LKY and Singapore badminton! Congrats to Indian players as well!

    It can happen. Badminton players from everywhere should take note and get going!

    Although Kidambi makes errors and is not very good nowadays, I still think many of his shots are beautiful. He played such shots today in the match. I enjoy his matches although his errors are sometimes frustrating.

    Kind of embarrassed, about the last paragraph of this post.

    Happy to see Yamaguchi win. She can now see her service error in WC19 semi with a smile now.

    I wont be surprised even when a first African or Arab or South American winning the first world champ, Malaysia still has not won any.

    The management along with the attitude/work ethics of the players are a big joke. They are not matured to handle big events and never will be.

    Sad to say…but I feel that TTY had her chances for WC and OLY gold, but missed them both. At 27 years, today was probably her best shot at finally retiring with a major.

    With supreme grinders like CYF, ASY and AY in the mix now, her prospects are bleak for next year’s WC if CYF is back and ASY isn’t injured, and almost non-existent for Paris.

    Just goes to show…seize the chance when it’s in front of you.

    Yup, 2017 was the best chance for TTY to win a WC. She will probably look back one day and regret not participating in the WC in 2017. You got to win it when you have the chance.

    Old folks of BAM, man. They don't have a clue about what they're doing, really.
