Totally agreed with Misbun Sidek.
For years I've been watching the BWF Super Series. Only the Chinese and the Korean can measure up to the pressure ! It comes down to their mental stability and a strong will to face the challenge playing against players who are better prepared for the game.
Team Malaysia needs support in the area. The Indonesian is lacking and falling so far behind now. If nothing is done, it will be years to catch up. Denmark is doing well in preparing their players in this area.
