I think skill wise this game Fajar Rian was superior but Markus Kevin was much stronger mentally
of course he is.... that's what a kiddie diehard fan do
even though fajar/rian lost I still don't know who's the best player in that match, fajar or kevin ? both played amazing.
Liu Cheng dreams he has Gideon’s skills
I still can't believe Kevin and Marcus won after that mid G3 disaster, I thought this was Fajar and Rian's to lose.
Best player of the match is Fajar, in my opinion. But I guess it was not good enough. Both Rian and Marcus were tensed and made a lot of mistakes.
It's not. Objectively, its just not.
Some ppl may value it over the WC, but that is for some sentimental reason only and has no basis in facts. Facts: the standards are lower and the competition is worse. The only redeeming factor of this tournament is its rarity, otherwise no one would care at all. Even BAC has higher standards and similar, slightly better competition.
true, fajar/rian have a very good shot quality. if this match was actually like some open tournament I think they would win.
Well who is the best is subjective but its a win win for all of us watching. Mens doubles hasnt been that exciting for some time now.
Skills or nerves? lol
I feel for Zhang Nan most of the time.
Well Badminton has just come to an end in this Asian Games season, so much to celebrate esp for indonesian fans and also this forum has been very entertaining to me seeing and reading some of your comments, the good and the bad, the encouraging and discouraging one its just a joy to read it all .
sorry i don't agree in my opinion AG is definitely > than bac
AG is mini-olympic compared to Olympic itself
as for whether AG is > WC now that one is debatable for sure
Feels like farewell speech
I would give credit to gideon though, he serves so well when things get tight.
It's almost as if play styles and good/bad match ups existed...imagine that, players having individual strengths and weaknesses that don't match up equally against everyone, what a crazy world that would be....
Are you poking at some players who don't?
I took a peek at the total medal tally so far, it surprised me CHN have 88 golds, 62 silvers and 43 bronzes, total 193 medals, a run-away leader at the moment, even her bronzes are equal to second-place JPN's golds !
AG > BAC because it is every 4 years.
For badminton specifically AG is only missing Denmark players (+ Carolina Marin), so in a way it is close to Olympics.
Much scarier than Olympics though. You can lose and be champion in OG but not here and plus its every 4 years. So yeah, last man standing.
yes, his partner
Well you can say every tournament is worth it for sentimental reason. But the best players are the one that have the most money and not just AG/WC titles at the end of day.
