What an exciting game by our Malaysian players, especially Liew Daren! Indeed, Malaysia once again lost the hope to reclaim the Thomas Cup after winning in in 1992 (I was in Year 2 back then!) but it was satisfying to see our Malaysian athletes really fought well in New Delhi tonight.
The coveted Thomas Cup.
With the congested Master’s Degree assignments, I found that game was an alleviation and getting in touch with patriotism was somewhat a great feeling. Furthermore, it was nice to see Malaysians from different races and religions showed support to the Malaysian players. Definitely indeed, sports have the power for unity.
The man!!!! No.1 and as good as ever! Datuk Lee Chong Wei.
Tago of Japan. Hate his cockiness. But oh, well….
As usual, our No.1 Datuk Lee Chong Wei had no problem to beat the cocky Kenichi Tago (I just hate his arrogant gesture. Sorry to his fans!). With the subsequent games by other players (sorry, I can’t recall the other members), the game led to the most important one by Liew Daren against Takuma Ueda. Although Ueda won, but Liew Daren fought well. It was indeed a heart-beating game!
Liew Daren, weathering the pressure and dragged Ueda to 3rd game. That was some sportsmanship spirit!
Don’t be sad. Liew Daren! Malaysians know you fought well to weather the pressure. Congratulations to Malaysian team as well!
