    haha....I think is fair for Ah How to have his own thread, something to remember for this silent fighter...not overrated but definitely underrated,

    Facts:
    Name: Hoon Thien How (云天豪)
    Born: 24 December, 1986 Kuala Lumpur
    Best Achievement: World Junior Champion 2004 (with Tan Boon Heong)
    INA Open 2008 SF (with OSH)
    AE 2011 QF (with Zakry)

    After some searching, found out he is LYD assasin, some notable one:
    2004 WJC HTH/TBH beat LYD/JJY 2-1
    2009 Asia Championship HTH/Lin Woon Fui beat LYD/Shin Bael Cheok 2-0
    2009 Taiwan Open HTH/Amelia Alicia beat LYD/LHJ 2-0
    2010 MAS Open HTH/OSH beat LYD/JJS 2-1
    2011 Sudirman Cup HTH/TBH beat LYD/JJS 2-1

    H2H with LYD in MD 4-1
    H2H with LYD in XD 1-1

    no big achievement at the moment but hopefully when he retire, he will have something to be proud of....:D:D

    Very useful player to keep around and spring surprises.

    Imagine the possible combinations in the next Thomas cup,

    TBH/HTH, KKK/GWS or even MHC , enough to keep their counterparts in China, Korea,Denmark and Japan guessing!

    So BAM must have a good reason to keep somebody, old saying good things come to those people who wait.

    if I can remember correctly, HTH used to partner TBH, Chan Chong Ming, Lin Woon Fui, Lim Khim Wah, Ong Soon Hock and now Zakry.....
    if there is time, i will list out some notable results he achieved with each partner....

    Wow..that's a lot of combinations..he is the utility man, underrated but capable of springing surprises. To make up for his speed and power, he is cool as a cucumber, accurate with his placings of shots and a damn good defence.

    this guy is good! his style and body shape is almost like markus kido! :p

    very few unforced errors, as compared to tbh

    excellent serves with the bird wobbly and tight to the net, making it difficult to return

    and most important of all, no fancy shmancy hi risk shots like you-know-who! :D

    Since thomas cup in KL, i already knew Ah Hoon is Daniel's idol:D..

    Btw, maybe rexy can consider partnering him with TBH in tournaments to come. Try pair up KKK with Zakry.

    They can be world beaters!:eek::D

    HTH is very mentally stable, but I have to agree that he's underrated, even I greatly underestimated him because he wasn't impressive with Zakry or with OSH (besides the big win against JJS/LYD)

    Has quite a sad story actually, ever since TBH paired up with KKK and won the Asian Games Gold Ah Hoon has pretty much been on the sidelines... but he stuck with BAM all the way...

    蘇杯‧以其人之道還治其人之身‧雲天豪打太極虎有一手

    2011蘇迪曼杯 羽球 2011-05-27 16:12

    2004年世青賽,陳文宏與雲天豪在男雙決賽擊敗了韓國新一代雙打奇才李龍大與其搭檔鄭鍾榮,拿下冠軍。

    搔七年之癢

    2010年大馬公開賽,雲天豪與王順福在首圈爆冷淘汰鄭在成與李龍大,當時“成龍組合”甚至因怎麼打也打不死雲王組合,罕見的在輸球後發火。

    2011年蘇杯複賽,雲天豪與陳文宏重新配對,闊別7年後聯手再次擊敗了李龍大與其拍檔鄭在成,這個“七年之癢”,雖等了漫長些,但還是震驚了韓國隊。

    儘管大馬最終無法創造奇蹟淘汰韓國,但兩人的表現仍獲得了雙方教練、媒體、球迷等高度贊賞。25歲的雲天豪再次證明了他是李龍大甚至“韓流”的剋星。
    懷才不遇未自暴自棄

    雲天豪與陳文宏登上世青冠軍寶座時,前途本應一片光明,但隨著教練把陳文宏與古健傑配為國家第一男雙後,雲天豪與陳文宏的命運迥異,陳文宏從此平步青雲,反觀雲天豪在國家隊裡浮沉多年,搭檔換了一個又一個,有點懷才不遇的悲情。

    可是,別看他身材越來越胖,以為他自暴自棄,他的功力一點都沒有“鈍”,每天堅持在訓練館訓練,等的就是那麼一場關鍵的比賽,使出他的絕技。

    這次在蘇杯複賽遇到韓國,雷西賦予雲天豪重大的任務與信任,結果後者不負眾望,網前、發球與接發都處理得非常冷靜又刁鑽。
    雷西:最好的防守球員

    雲天豪被雷西稱為大馬隊裡“最好的防守球員”並非浪得虛名,成龍組合此役的連環扣殺,一旦到了他手裡,都化為反擊!更重要的是,雲天豪的心理素質特別強,在這場比賽他打的出奇冷靜和沉著。

    賽後,雲天豪為自己在這場比賽的表現打了90分的高分,對於這次比賽能再次擊敗鄭在成與李龍大,雲天豪說是以其人之道還治其人之身:“他們擅於防守反擊,先拉開對手,再來進攻,我們就用他們的打法打回他們。”
