    I am not sure Wong Wai Hong from HKG is the one we usually saw his entries in SS, if he is.. Allan Tai provide the second biggest upset of the day by defeating him :eek: 21-16; 21-18

    And i noticed Hoon Thien How partner for MD is Tan Wee Kiong :eek:
    Not sure it will be a temporary or permanent partnership :cool:

    Beryno Wong , who upset Kuan, was beaten by Thailand number 3 Tanongsak in 45 minutes in the same day:mad:

    Couple of strange partnership in XD (yannie, don't laugh :D)
    1. Chong Wei Feng + Ooi Swee Wenn
    2. Chong Li Qun + Julia Wong
    3. Beryno Wong + Anita Raj Kaur

    yeah, Allan Tai is ex BAM. discarded in the same batch with Ismail Saman, Sairul Amar Ayob and Ong Ewe Hock. I'm not sure if he was really given the chance to prove himself back then before they downsized the squad.

    Looks like he's finally back with some hot steam in his engine. watch out anyone in his way.

    Notable recent results :-
    1) This year Kedah Open dragged Yeoh Kay Bin to full rubber sets.
    2) I think he took a World Chinese title last year by beating a China Player. Not sure which age category.

    15 Nov Matches
    11:00 MS Wong Beryno (MAS) Kuan Beng Hong (MAS) 21-15 19-21 21-19 58 minutes

    18:00 MXD Wong Beryno+Kaur Anita Raj (MAS) Chong Li Qun+Wong Julia Pei Xian (MAS) 21-19 20-22 21-12 45 minutes

    20:40 MS Saensomboonsuk Tanongsak (THA) Wong Beryno (MAS) 18-21 21-13 21-15 45 minutes

    Well as you can see : Too many hard games in one day + all quality opponents + not being seeded in the draw when you are suppose to be seeded = all just ends up the wrong way.

    Still.... there's a glimmer of hope in their XD.

    I saw the young Arif play at the 2007 Singapore Open against Taufik Hidayat.
    His technique is very sound... and he is fast, very fast.
    Not surprisingly, he grabbed a game from the maestro (21-16) :)

    If I were Arif, I'd work on my blocks (which were rather wayward) and my smashes (for both punch and angle). He appears to be hitting the shuttle when it's right above him... instead of when it's in front of him. :)

    Yes, Arif is likely to prove azabaz_ipoh right.
    He is destined to go places :)

    (By the way, how old is Arif?)

    To Oldhand

    Dear Oldhand,

    I agreed with you that Arif is a talent player whom one day will represent my beloved team Malaysia. He has good skills but he needs to improve on his stamina to prevent him from getting cramps and injuries during match. I believe that he will learn from his experiences in the tournament that he participated. From a small boy is my eyes when I saw him play at the age of 14 now he has proved that he one of my future heroes.
