    hmmm, if arif is injured, then that's a shame. i was looking forward to seeing him do well this time, he had a good asian junior championship.

    INA lost to SIN, now that's a surprise, some heads are going to roll for this!

    So we are getting some results from our foreign talent policy, but we still have a long way to go...! :)

    And thanks to both powerhouses China and Indonesia, our youths are learning well from their talented foreign coaches as well :D:D:D!

    Singapore has to be different and in management and resource allocation, we are different from big brother Indonesia.

    Of course we have imported the girls when they were about 12-13 years old and developed them to this stage. This is what we call 'foreign talent'. And we import the talented coaches as well, just like Malaysia! :rolleyes:

    But I'm most happy that our local boys are up to the task now. :cool:

    This is taken from BWF's website:

    Malaysia’s singles coach Sun Chenhua said Arif is doubtful for the semi-final tie on Saturday after he strained his groin in the match.
    [FONT=Arial,][FONT=Arial,]
    “He is in pain when he walks and we will wait until tomorrow to see if he recovers. If the pain persists, we will not field him,” said Sun.

    [FONT=Arial,][FONT=Arial,]“We are the underdogs against China as they have two strong singles players, and with Arif’s injury, China are the favourites.”

    I respect what SIN is doing... If I were the one in charge of SIN badminton development, I would do exactly the same thing... :p Whoever is doing it over there, I give 2 thumbs up! ;)

    Singapore citizens are almost all imports from either China, India, Malaysia, etc... At one point, they were all foreigners... :p Most were imported 100 to 200 years ago, but hey, ...still imported foreigners. Now SIN imported Fu Mingtian, Gu Juan, Zhang, Xing blabla around 4-6 years ago. Same 'foreign import' concept... :D I see nothing wrong with that... ;) he he he... :p SIN's very foundation and existence was built on it. SIN is just following its founding father's old traditions... :)

    that would be fairly unlikely, though if you are going to aim, why not aim for the stars?

    I thought INA would have win over SIN...

    SIN baddy has improved very well recently.
    Could be the same level as MAS, DEN, INA, etc... someday...
