Thomas & Uber Cup 2010!

Thomas and Uber Cup 2010 are ongoing now from May 9 - 16 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. All the big teams including China (favorite team), Malaysia, Indonesia, Denmark and Korea have sent all their top players to in their attempt to emerge victorious in both events. So, what is your prediction? Based on the most recent results from this year's badminton tournaments, I would say that all the top five teams especially for Thomas Cup have an equal chance of going all the way provided that they live up to their top game when it matters most. Nevertheless, my prediction is still China taking both the cups, although I am hopeful that other countries such as Malaysia (haven't won Thomas Cup since 1992) and Indonesia (last won it in 2002) would step up their game and emerge as Champions!

Badminton News: Gunalan thinks Malaysia are capable of beating China with a 3-0 scoreline


FORMER Malaysian ace and top international badminton official Datuk Punch Gunalan feels that Malaysia need to produce a “shock and awe” performance in a Thomas Cup tie against China with All-England champion Lee Chong Wei firing the first salvo if they harbour hopes of toppling the defending champions.
Malaysia are playing in Group B, which has Nigeria and Japan. And they can only be up against China in the knockout stage and it could be in the quarter-finals if they slip up against Japan and advance as group runners-up.

Barely hours after coming down with high fever, Mew Choo surprisingly turned up on court to train with the rest of the team at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil yesterday. To her relief, the fever and flu scare turned out to be nothing much to worry about.

KUALA LUMPUR: Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka’s name may be quite a tongue twister.

They were beaten by the back-up squad’s Tan Wee Kiong-Mak Hee Chun in a simulation exercise at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara here yesterday. But chief doubles coach Rexy Mainaky said that there was nothing to worry about over in their 21-18, 15-21, 17-21 defeat.

Badminton Video: Badminton Asia Championship 2010 Men Singles Finals Badminton - Lin Dan VS Wang Zhengming

An interesting counter between the Olympic champion, Lin Dan and his fellow junior teammate, Wang Zhengming who is only 20 year old but has won both the World and Asian Junior Championships in 2008. Being the first international tournament that Wang is playing in, his performance so far in the tournament has been superb, beating Shoji Sato and then Kenichi Tago, the recent runner-up in All England.

The odds are stacked high upon Kenichi Tago, the former world junior champion to beat Bao Chunlao, the reigning German Open champion.

An uprising player from China, Du Pengyu in competition with his more experienced teammate, Chen Jin. Du Pengyu has done very well in this tournament by beating the reigning All England runner-up, Kenichi Tago. In fact, his performance this year has been pretty impressive thus far as he even beat Park Sung Hwan of Korea in the recent Malaysia Open. Would he be able to defy the odds and continue his run in this tournament?

Badminton Video: Swiss Open 2010 Mixed Doubles Finals Badminton - Lee Yong-dae & Lee Hyo Jung VS Shin Baek Cheol & Yoo Hyun Young

An all-Korean encounter for the mixed doubles event which is pretty rare considering the presence of numerous outstanding mixed doubles players from China, Indonesia, England and Denmark. Nevertheless, the less experienced pair which was unseeded definitely achieved a breakthrough since they did not even get past second round in this year's Super Series events so far (Korea Open, Malaysia Open and All England Championship).

Badminton Video: Swiss Open 2010 Women Singles Finals Badminton - Shixian Wang vs Yanjiao Jiang

Again, the Chinese team clearly shows their superiority in the woman event by having their two youngsters playing each other in the Finals. While it was disappointment for Shixian Wang in the recent All England when she lost in the first round to Indonesian Maria Febe Kusumastuti, she made amends and made it all the way here. Would she be able to make an upset and stun her more favorable teammate?

Badminton Video: Swiss Open 2010 Men Doubles Finals - Sung Hyun Ko & Yeon Seong Yoo vs Koo Kien Keat & Tan Boon Heong

After losing in the first round of the recent All England championship, Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong must be really pumped up to perform in this tournament. That being said, they lived up to expectation by getting to the finals. However, their younger opponents are definitely a pair to respect considering that they beat their more veteran and well-established pair, Jung Jae-sung and Lee Yong-dae. This match, I expect, would go down the wire. 

Badminton Video: Swiss Open 2010 Men Singles Finals - Chen Jin VS Chen Long

An encounter between two former junior champions who are both out to prove their worthiness for being in the Chinese team. While Lin Dan lost to Peter Gade in the quarter finals stage and Bao Chunlai not playing in this tournament, these two players definitely live up to expectation to get this far. Chen Long may be the next Lin Dan if he plays the cards right. Enjoy the match!

Badminton Video: Swiss Open 2010 Men Singles Quarter Finals - Chen Jin VS Tien Minh Nguyen

The top player from Vietnam, Tien Minh Nguyen has had a very encouraging outing in 2009 namely when he won the Thailand Open Grand Prix Gold 2009 and Yonex Chinese Taipei Gold Grand Pix 2009. Interestingly, he just played Chen Jin in the recent Korea Open and lost in the quarter final stage. Will he be able to avenge his defeat?

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Badminton Video: Swiss Open 2010 Men Singles Quarter Finals - Peter Gade VS Lin Dan

These two players always remind me of their encounter back in the 2004 All England Championships where Lin Dan was in his initial quest to dominate the badminton arena for awhile while Peter Gade just started playing again after recovering from a surgery. That match was entertaining not just because of their high-skilled shots but also the mental war that was going on where Lin Dan would always refuse to replace the birdie (shuttlecock) although Peter Gade requested so. Nevertheless, I would expect this match to be a a closely fought battle between the two of the most respected players of all time. Enjoy!

Badminton Video: Swiss Open 2010 Men Singles Round 2 - Lin Dan VS Wan Ho Shon

The younger player from Korea, Wan Ho Shon who gave the recent winner of All England, Lee Chong Wei a run for his time in the quarter finals stage had to play the most well known player from China, Lin Dan. Would Wan Ho be able to make his money worth like what he did against Chong Wei?

Badminton Video: 2010 All England Super Series Badminton Men Singles Semi Finals - Lee Chong Wei vs Peter Gade

Two of my favorite players, Lee Chong Wei and Peter Gade have to play each other again for the second time this year in which the first time encounter was in the Korea Open where Chong Wei emerged as the winner. I always admire Chong Wei for his speed and never-say-die attitude on the court while Peter Gade being the more experienced player has that flair and trick shots that always keep me guessing and excited.

Badminton News: What happened to Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong?

When I checked the news yesterday and knew they got through the finals and would be playing the less known Korean pair, I was quite optimistic about the chance of securing their third Swiss Open title. However, they definitely let me down especially after turning the tables after a disappointing outing at the All England. Hopefully I will be able to get hold of the match soon and post the videos here. Stay tuned! Meanwhile, this is the latest news about their performance in Swiss Open 2010 by The Star.

The independent players from Malaysia, Tan Bin Shen and Gan Teik Chai defied the odds of getting through the early rounds of this championship by Yohan Hadikusumo Wiratama/Wai Hong Wong (from Hong Kong) followed by the recent champion of German Open, Chai Biao/Zhang Nan. This time, they had to play the more veteran pair from Denmark.

Badminton Video: 2010 All England Badminton Mixed Doubles Quarter Finals - Anthony Clark/Heather Olver vs Lee Yong Dae/Lee Hyo Jung

Following the retirement of Donna Kellogg, Anthony Clark was recently paired up with a new female player, Heather Olver and based on their recent perforance in the All England, they are definitely faring very well as a new mixed doubles pair. Would they stand a chance against the formidable pair from South Korea?

Thursday, March 18, 2010

Badminton Video: 2010 All England Men Singles Quarter Finals - Lee Chong Wei vs Shon Wan Ho

Although considered an uprising player from Korea, Shon Wan Ho is definitely a player to look out for considering his previous rounds performance in the 100th All England Championship where he beat Wacha Przemyslaw, the number one player from Poland, Chan Yan Kit from Hong Kong and then Chen Long, another young talent from China who was on form to emerge runner up in the recent German Open. Did he give Chong Wei a run for his money in this tournament?

Badminton Video: 2010 All England Super Series Badminton Women Singles Quarter Finals Tine Rasmussen VS Lu Lan

While the Chinese used to totally dominate the Women Singles event, we are seeing more competitors who can challenge this pool of players, namely, Wong Mew Choo, Sainah Nehwal, Tine Rasmussen and Juliane Schenk. This is an exciting match which again proves to be a typical barricade that Tine Rasmussen has to overcome in most tournaments since there are so many women singles talented players in every Super Series from China.

Badminton Video: 2010 All England Men Singles Quarter Finals - Peter Gade VS Taufik Hidayat

A classic match between two of the most veteran players of all the time, Peter Gade and Taufik Hidayat. Being such experienced players, both of them have played each other in many occasions and understand each other's game in and out. Thus, this match was a big clash and every point was attained through hard-fought rally. Who will prevail in this match? Witness it yourself!

Badminton Video: Swiss Open 2008 Badminton Men Singles Final Lee Chong Wei VS Lin Dan

Another classic match between the two best players in the world currently. Will Chong Wei be able to forget the stigma of losing to Lin Dan and establish a well-deserved and admirable self-esteem? After all, they are comparable in skills, so the difference is really psychological.
