    It seemed as if Marc ran out of ideas what to do against Hafiz, since he rarely came through with his attack. Even if I have never watched Marc playing live, I’d say that maybe Marc’s smashing quality isn’t that much of a threat to world class players…

  2. Emmet Gibney says:

    Actually, I watched Marc defeat Hafiz in Denmark back in October at the Denmark Super Series. Marc has some amazing shots, and is very dangerous from the back court. He doesn’t hit super hard, but his slices are deadly. He also beat Wong Choong Han, Chen Long and Sony Dwi Kuncoro!

    For players like Marc it’s more about consistency of performance, and getting quality sparring. Occasionally he’ll have some great performances, but if you’re not playing those kinds of players very often you’re not going to be able to compete regularly.

    I see your point, Emmet.
