    yes, this time tony G seem to had committed more errors, candra was playing quite good. At the 2007 MO, it was candra that committed more errors of the pair.

    No Ticket to Final All England

    After defeating Lee Yong Dae and Jung Jae Sung 21-18 and 23-21 in quarter final, we were stopped by Cai Yun and Fu Haifeng in three intense games: 21-18, 19-21, and 18-21 in semi final round.
    Certainly, the key is to win the second game to prevent playing the third game. We could've won it; unfortunately, we didn't. Well, it was certainly not great when the match was won by Fu Haifeng flicking his serve to Candra; however, that's part of badminton game.
    Candra and I won All England back in 1999; although the last time I won it was in 2001, partnering with Halim. We certainly have the ambition to win it again; especially after years of being apart. Too bad, not this time. Hopefully, we will still have the opportunity to compete next year.

    Yes Sir, nice, gentle panda. But when you gotta "break" the shuttle, you gotta break it.:p

    Going back to Candra, after watching the 3rd game, he should not have let the shuttle affect him. Oh well...good luck to Fu/Cai in the Finals. :)

    From the pictures posted, the serve looks legal to me. Definitely below waist and top of racket head just below the racket handle.

    Tony had a bad moment when his racquet strings snapped and teh shuttle went into the net losing a point. It was just sheer bad luck to happen at such a close juncture.

    methinks doubles players rarely follow the serving rules... many of them serve about the waist

    In badminton, the definition of waist is actually "third rib from the bottom", so it is quite high. For those who don't know ...

    Maybe you can get a slow mo serve by Tony G. i'm sure it looks the same like the Chinese serve.

    Strange thing...

    ...in the other semi-final (Lungaard/Erikson vs. KKK/TBH) the very last point of the match was also a flick serve, this time deceiving Lungaard. Do you think KKK/TBH had been watching the earlier match...?

    Hmm, this reminds me of...

    ..another incident involving Candra and Sigit(abt 2 yrs ago or so)..But it was against JEriksen&MLHansen(aih forgot which tournament it was)...And yes, it involved the shuttle also...In that particular match, however, if i remember correctly, both pairs kept "exchanging jabs" by replacing & not replacing the shuttle when their respective opponents requested to change or not change..At the end, after all the exchanges, the Danish pair won..;)

    OFF TOPIC:Abt the inquiry of who's sponsoring/paying their traveling expenses, I believe since they(Tony & Candra) are playing as "free-lance" pair, both incurred all the costs..So, most likely they'll lose money, esp. after falling short in their last 3 SS tourneys..:p;)

    I was in thestadium watching this last match. I'm fairly sure the flick serve was legal but we've all had those super quick flicks that takes you by surprise. Chandra and Tony just seemed to stand there, i'm sure they were hoping that the serve would be called illegal.

    Unfortunately everyone in the hall were just stunned, there was silence for a second or two before everyone applauded the winners.

    As for the Danes match - a similar super quick flick, but I think they just gave up with the MAL team getting so many net cords :)

    Don't know what rules you are playing to, but that's not what the 2006 rules state:

    "9.1.5 the whole shuttle shall be below the server’s waist at the instant of being hit by the server’s racket. The waist shall be considered to be an imaginary line round the body, level with the lowest part of the server’s bottom rib"

    The bit about the bottom rib was added to this edition of the rules as there wasn't a true definition of where the waist was supposed to be.
