    Based on current form, unpredictability and opponent fear factor, I think Ronald gets the nod. Imagine if LD draws RS in Round 1 what would go through his mind. ;) I honestly think not many would like to face RS in the early rounds. He, much more so than Kendrick stands a better chance.

    Call it..

    ..since this sounds like an uneasy decision to make and some like RS to go while others like KL to go, why don't they just flip a coin to decide the outcome??..Call it heads or tails?? If it's tails for RS, then RS it is..If it's heads for KL, the KL it is..:cool:

    Its all a matter of perception... about being strict, etc, etc...:D Yes our laws are strict and enforcement is thorough, but at the same time they are transparent. The aim is to be fair to everyone as far as possible.

    But it is also true that there is no perfect system. That's why the best is yet to be. :)

    If you have a decent living, you can find work, you can travel about freely at home and abroad, have adequate protection from the law, treated equally in the eyes of the law...that is not too bad despite what others may say...;)

    In the choice of the MS for the Beijing Olympics, I think they will be fair and will choose the player whom they consider the one most likely to do well and bring pride to Singapore... and this must be based on current performance for the BO is just about 3 months away. :)

    The problem is, there's still about 3.5 months away from Olympics. Peak too early might not be a good sign. Look at LD in 2004, no one can stop him for months, but he lost in the 1st round.

    Carry the good momentum is good, but peak at the right time is the best. ;)

    Not sure how you make such conclusion :confused: The only Chinese player that played and won all matches was Bao Chunlai. Lin Dan lost tamely to Chong Wei and was dragged rubber by Park. Chen Jin didn't played in the final and seems to get injure quite easily. Fu/Cai lost to Lee/Jung and Xie/Guo lost to Tazari/Zakry and China is more confident now to win more gold in Olympic based on the above scenario?
    I don't think TC is a good platform to gage the Olympic winners as top notch players hardly had chance to meet one another, take Lee Chong Wei for example, he only met and played one solid matches against top gun Lin Dan. Bao and Chen Jin didn't really play against any Olympic title contender since they play 2nd and 3rd.
    I would say is inconclusive, the coming platforms Singapore and Indonesia Opens will be a better one to peek at the Olympic gold medal contenders.

    China might not even want to play in the Singapore and the Indonesia Opens in 2008

    .
    Han... You could be correct. :):):)

    However, a little bird told me that China is happy after the TC/UC 2008, and that they might not even want to participate in the Singapore and the Indonesia Opens this year. :(

    But that little bird could be wrong. :D

    I don't think anyone who aims for OG gold will play his/her best in SO or IO.

    I would not risk LCW in the IO as it is too close for comfort even though he is the defending champion. Maybe SO is ok to finetune further.
