    Why is it that in all major tournaments, there are no side by side seats for the crowds to enjoy. All major tournaments, the matches are played on a big hall and the finals are held in the same hall without the crowd getting a better view at the sides. It should be like Tennis matches.

    I just woke up and quite surprised to see Kido/Hendra winning in two sets. The pattern seemed to be the same too...11-10 at the the interval and time to step up a gear.

    Kido/Hendra vs Fu/Cai yet again in the SF. If Kido/Hendra play in their top form and no fooling around from Kido, they will beat the CHN pair! They know how to play against the CHN pair (unlike the DEN pair), they just need to focus and not to allow the CHN pair's flick serves to bother them!

    2010 BWF WC Semi-Finals: It is Park-vs-Hidayat (Top half of draw)

    .
    They, good friends, TH and LCW, both wanted to face LD at the Semi-Finals.

    Unfortunately for LCW, TH was the one who made it into the Semi-Finals.

    Unfortunately for TH, LD lost to PSH. :(:(:(

    Yes, I think TH and LCW are eager to play LD........but TH sure feel less pressure if playing other players except LD.

    There's no reason to feel any pressure anytime. why should it be differently when he's well prepared as he is now?
    by the way - that applies to LCW as well as for any other player (may be different for north koreans - buddies, that's a joke!)

    Sure, LCW's movements were pretty slow and sluggish but we cannot take credit away from Taufik. He certainly had a glimpse of his 2004* OG form in the first game, his defense was amazing yesterday although he fizzled out in the second game to save stamina.

    PSH sometimes does the impossible.
    I feel he has the belief that he can beat TH especially since he needed just 2 games to subdue LD whereas TH needed 3 games and spent more time on court. Also PSH is the younger of the 2 players.
