Congratulations to Korean Women and India mens team for winning the famous trophy. This is the first for India and they demolished Indonesia 3-0. Korea did well to upset China. No one knows what the Chinese WZY did to win ABC and then lost to an unknown Korean player in 3WS. Complacent maybe?
Some worth mentioned moments.
For Malaysian Uber team, they lost to Denmark narrowly. They should have put in the veterans like LPJ and Shevon Lai for 2nd doubles. Malaysia could have qualified for quarter finals.
For Malaysia TC team, the coaches gambled on 1st double to beat India, its a mistake because they did not do their homework to check the head to head record. Another messed up opportunity. No one in the Management team takes responsibility. Points fingers at each other.
For Japan TC team, someone needs to fix Momota, his form is horrendous. He needs a new coach to change his style of play. Too defensive. 1MD also disappoints.
Lakshya Sen did well to win the 1st match against Indonesia to get the ball rolling. Confidence builds up. Gintin should have close the match in 2 games. As for Indonesia, they also did a mistake to have Ahsan and Kevin to play 1st MD. It backfired.
For Denmark vs India, Gemke must be dreaming. Same goes to Antonsen. These 2 guys did not show up.
Japan Uber was disappointing as well against Korea. No one showed up.
Lastly for Singapore. They have good young singles player but unfortunately there is no focus on them. Too bad. Singapore will live with 1 single player at the moment. Need someone to kick butts in SBA.
The year of the underdogs. Good for badminton.
