    I think it depends on the goal of the players. Do you want to be a great player, or just the player grabbing many titles or something. Li/Tian have as many WC titles as Park/Kim, but people remember Park/Kim much more than Li/Tian. There is a reason.

    The current Chinese system is destroying the possibility of producing great players. i don't understand why Tian Bingyi, who has produced Ge/Gu -- having beautiful playing style and can win -- satisfies in producing hammering machines like Du/Yu.

    Well, Du/Yu's style has a lot to do with their character. You watch them and you listen to them, they are just like two boys in two girls' bodies. Tomboys. That's why they play like that: smash smash smash. For delicate placements, we might have to wait until they grow more mature and smart on the court.

    I guess with the new scoring system, which does not allow for mistakes, chokes the creativity of the game. Stronger and faster seems to be the name of the game in order to win, especially in doubles. Shame really, but the rule changes seem to have dictated a shift in style.

    ..saw the match...Taufik was just too slow; seemed like 2 steps slow, esp. in the 3rd set...well, that's the result of him not preparing and training hard for this WC...But after his title last yr, i can understand...:rolleyes: :p ;)

    Well, I think even Ha Taekwon's or Cheah Soonkit's style looks better than Du/Yu's... Ha and Cheah are boys, right? :D

    Hehe, you must have had a few nervous moments with your beloved CJ coming so close with being shown the exit. I know you like KBH too so you were in a win-win situation :)

    To sum it quickly.

    Lots of suprises or nearly a suprise in R16 today considering not all player or pairs participate in WC 2006.

    In WS, Petra beat Wang Chen in 3 games. WC seem under performed lately. Is age catching up to her now? Losing to Tine in HK Open and now even Petra?

    Susan Hughes almost upasetting Petya after yesterday good performance eliminated Hwang Hwe Youn.

    From MD, not a big suprise when Hendra/Markis won over Choong/Lee. But CTF/LWW lost tamely in second set.

    Sofar not any suprise from WD.

    From MS.

    KBH almost so closed eliminated CJ who favour to roll at least into SF. At least malaysia fans can smile knowing that at least KBH still had it.

    And of course a heart break for all Taufik hardcore fans when he lost to CH.

    The most upsetting result is when Nova/Lily lost to KKK, WPT in 3 very very closed sets.

    Speaking of boyish looking girls, I'm sorry to say this: why are Malaysian women doubles players always so...i mean...they don't look like girls. They walk like boys, hair not properly kept, not feminine body. I don't know how to describe. Especially their fluffy hair and fluffy shirts. I mean, hey you're on camera and you're supposed to be a lady...

    Wang Chen is too old. I think she just can't keep the form training in HK. She was already sooooo slow in last years' ABC.

    ..unforced errors, esp. that many, indicate player(s) is/are usually losing awareness and most likely getting tired...They were basically taking their time esp. towards nearing the end of the 3rd set..
    The stats, at least to me, indicate that both are abt in the same "fitness" level...And like i mentioned earlier in my other posts, i'm afraid even if either TH wins, he will not have much left gas in the tank for tomorrow's or later match(es)..And i'm afraid it could be also true for CH..:rolleyes: :p

    As long as XXF defends her WS successfully, new champions are good.

    The Malaysian WD pair is hanging on...and seems determined to win the second set, currently on a set point, 20-19.

    Zhang Yawen might as well give this game up :cool:
