    Through the course of history we've had many players that shone for a while and then just disappeared...Lee Tsuen Seng, Yeoh Kay Bin, Lin Woon Fui etc....where are they now? Lee Tsuen Seng did quite well when he was young...but all went downhill for him...also..where is Roslin Hashim now?

    Yeoh Bay Bin joined K Yogendran to open Training Center. He still plays off and on. Yeoh's younger bro(also Yeoh Kay ....) is playing as independent. Roslin Hashim is assistant coach in BAM, since 2011, assisting Hendrawan.
    Jeremy Gan I think has asthma or sinus problem, so I suppose hard for him to play on.
    Lin Woon Fui, no idea, he retired and married Delia Arnold, Msia's squash player

    that's interesting...I wonder then what Lin himself is doing....he used to be a capable player...I remembered few years ago when Zakry/Fairuz and LWF/GTC and OSH/TBS were still in the national team....we pretty much had 5 world class MD pairs...LWF must be doing coaching now...any ideas on Zakry/Fairuz? playing independently?

    nope that isnt why... he ask to leave BAM because he is not able to participate in tournaments that he can win, but ask to participate in tournaments he dont like, not even when he is willing to fork out his own money

    Okay allow me to make some comments on this mixed doubles player named Lai Pei Jing. I am actually very impressed with her style of play. She is still very young but she has a very good skills at the court. This actually helped her to win over opponents which are higher ranked than her. I still remembered the epic moments whereby she toppled some of the higher ranked Indonesian and Thailand mixed doubles players. She is still very young. She is named the lady of steel or iron lady. She can play very well despite who she is partnered with. Despite not playing with Tan Aik Quan for one year, and recently only played again with Tan Aik Quan, her ranking rose up to 56 again last week. I believe her ranking will rise up again this week after the tournament. She partners Chan Peng Soon for a while last year and despite being a new pair playing together their ranking are as high as no 28 before. Well, I must say I am really impressed with her. :)

    Lin Woon Fui seems to be listed in the MD qualification section of Malaysian Open. I'm sure he's still got the goods to get past a few rounds...
