Congratulations on Malaysia team for their fantastic and breathtaking match against Denmark last nite. We all Malaysian are very proud of the players for their all out spirit through out the 5 games. Just hope the magic will happen for this Friday match against China.
Hereby is the full result and some of my comments on the game last night.
Single 1: Lee Chong Wei vs Peter Gade (21-17, 21-17)
-Congratulation Datuk! You deserve it for your full commitment on your every day training at 4.am.
Kacak and Bergaya!
Double 1: Koo Kean Keat/Tan Boon Heong vs Viktor Axelsen/Mathias Boe (21-17, 21-19)
-Good pair. Support each other. Not much comment from me as I'm not fully focus on this match because of Adamaya.
Single 2: Wong Choong Han vs Jan Jorgensen (20-22, 21-16, 18-21)
-Even this match is won by Denmark, our Choong Han still play at his best level. He never give a single chance to the opponent who is much younger than him. Dah veteran dah beliau kan? Teringat zaman kegemilangan die dulu2, which is 10 years back. Btw, he's still fit and his fighting spirit amazed me. Just avoid the netting tactic ye Mr Wong. It's one of your weakness that your opponent has always aiming for.
Double 2: Mohd Zakry/ TH Hoon vs Paaske/Jonas Rasmussen (26-24, 12-21, 19-21)
-The most breathtaking match ever. I always love the deuce part and hope they can drag it till point 30! Jahat kan I, kesian players ni kepenatan. Zakry and Hoon were all out in the first set and managed to catch the Denmark even after being left with a few points. They managed to control their emotion and stay cool till the end. For the second set, their energy level quite low and miscommunication always happen especially when the shuttle headed to the middle of the court which is between them. And for the third set, I'm not sure why but Zakry and Hoon switched their position. Zakry was now guarding in front while Hoon at the back. Personally I'm not agree with that because Zakry seems blur at the front there and Hoon looks exhausted running from one edge of the court to another. Hoon duduk depan kan elok macam the first game tadi? But Hoon, you'll need more practice on the netting as the last point won by Denmark is caused by your net failing tactic. ;p
Single 3: Hafiz Hashim and Persson (21-12, 21-10)
-Hafiz is back! His coolness and no-expression face have hooked a lot of girls out there. His strategy on netting and sharp smash at the baseline turns out well last night, his height is a big advantage though. Congrats to Hafiz! Our coach, please make Hafiz as a player for a match against Lin Dan. I'm sure he'll make the sarcastic Lin Dan cried for the rest of the week.Lin Dan kan pantang kalau org cool2 neh.
Overall, congrats to the team for their tip top performance. Good luck for the upcoming match against China this Friday. Hope that I'll have another chance to congratulate you guys again.
