    Watching them live now in All England Round of 32 is killing me. It's as if they've lost their concentration that was not much to begin with.
    Am I the only one who thinks that GLY lacked of the skill to setup smashes for CPS or doing a netkill?
    I haven't seen her doing any of this for a long long time.

    Just watched their match with Robertson/Wallwork in Axiata Cup 2013... really at lost for words! CPS/GLY were 20 (match point) -8 up and yet they let their opponents saved 7 match pts before closing G3 at 21-15!

    IMO, it's not that their opponents played really well to save those match pts, but I thought CPS/GLY were not focused enough to close match. :(

    Has anybody noticed how CPS always talks to herself and her partner in Chinese on court, even though she plays for Malaysia?

    I always thought it was a little weird/funny that she speaks in Chinese.

    I don't understand your question. Both CPS and CLY are Chinese Malaysian and naturally they can speak and converse in Mandarin or other Chinese dialects.

    Err, no 1) Chan Peng Soon(CPS) is the male, Goh Liu Ying is the female player
    2) They are ethnic Chinese and chinese educated, their chinese is better than English. Both CPS and GLY post in chinese on their official Facebook wall, GLY's english (the girl) is better than CPS though. GLY can answer press interviews in English, CPS looks like doesnt have the confidence to do so, much like LCW.

    3) Their coach, Jeremy Gan, gives them instructions in chinese, if not mistaken, Cantonese and sometimes Mandarin. Only if the coach is non chinese speaking like Rosman Razak, previously Rexy, then they communicate in malay.
    I forgot Tan Kim Her, the MD and chief doubles coach, he gives instructions in Hokkien to Hokkien speaking players like TBH. I think all these coaches have had the 'duty' of sitting in the coaches chair during CPS/GLY matches


    Hey Limsy, who you call banana? I banana but can speak chinese, read only cannot:p

    Aiyaiyai... To think that this question popped up in a MAS mixed duo's page. First you got the gender wrong, then you questioned why a Malaysian Chinese speaks Chinese... we shouldn't even say 'speaks Chinese' to be technically correct. Chinese is a race.

    Anyway, moving on....

    CPS/GLY just lost MAS GOLD GP...

    I guess when CPS said he's mentally tired, not really motivated.. he means it :eek: Need another solid XD pair to take some load off from this duo. Personally I would like to see Lim Yin Loo to have a permanent partner.

    I actually think GLY should be the one who complain since she has been playing 2 events and a ridiculous 4 matches on Thursday!

    She should is she? I noticed during the 2nd game before the Indonesian pair serve, she looked at CPS with concern, as if asking if he was okay or something like that... but really the pair's game was definitely OFF today. Even GLY made some uncharacteristic errors in her netplay. Hopefully WD would be better for her.

    I think this pair has reached the peak of their potential. Not a bad pair, and quite successful I must say for winning a Super Series title and several GP Gold titles.

    This pair MUST deliver if Malaysia wants to reach the quarters.
