Today, the MO 2010 just ended.
The results are not suprising with the continued dominace of Team China in the WD, XD and WS department.
The MD and MS are won by Malaysia.
The MS was a sort of white wash by LCW of Boonsak Ponsana.
Boonsak Ponsana is still one level behind LCW in terms of skill/speed/stamina.
It is a pity or else Kumpoo Power Shot Nano 2300 Hexagon would have shot up in price.
The MD games was excellent with the game stretched to rubber game. The net game was very important with the lanky Chinese player, Chen Xu challenging and managed to beat Malaysia's Koo Kien Kiat in a few net exchanges. The experience and aggression of Koo Kien Kiat managed to set up winners for himself and Tan Boon Heong. Eventually the Chinese pair began to make more mistakes lifting long and wide to avoid the netplay of Koo Kien Kiat. The crowd was pretty loud in the stadium and when Chen Xu gestured to the crowd to tone down, he was met with jeers. Given the weakness in China's MD apart from Fu/Cai, this 2nd doubles pair certainly gives China some depth in MD.
