    Rexy said that Zakry made many unforced errors... guess he really is the weak link of this pair... :rolleyes:

    no point to blame Zakry, in one partnership, both work as one unit...
    if Ah How can get new partner it will be better...or else, just live with it....

    What if still no results from this pair? Still live with it? BAM will get to eat humble pie because choose this pair that didn't show any results for the WC instead of the more higher ranked Gan/Tan.

    But IMO, they are better than Zakry/hoon. At least they upset some well known pair before. Did ZAkry/hoon did?

    Yes, any pair go also will be the same. Agree with this. So conclusion, no need send any pair go la.. Wasting taxpayers money only.

    indeed if they don't show any result in WC, BAM will have to eat the humble pie.

    it breaks my heart to see HTH working so hard, breaking his balls just to have zakry squandered away all the hard earn point. they did get fairly good result in AE 2011, beating Fang-Lee in straight set and stretching BoMo before bowing out at quarter final. even then it was obvious that Zakry was weak, i was hoping he would improve, but the showing in Indonesia Open has been really disappointing.

    Zakry lacked the killer instinct, HTH 's mobility is suspect

    The Star

    Hoon-Zakry’s future depends on their performances in London



    KUALA LUMPUR: The future of doubles shuttlers Hoon Thien How-Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif will depend very much on their performances in the World Championships which will be held in London from Aug 8-14.
    The 25-year-old Thien How would rather stay focused on his present situation.
    The stocky Thien How, who is excited over his debut in the world meet, is hoping that there will be a first-timer’s luck when he plays together with Zakry. They are Malaysia’s other entry for London beside the more illustrious Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong.
    “Zakry and I may not have any good results to show this year but we have no intention of being too worried about our future right now. To us, what is important is to give our best in the world championships,” said Thien How.
    “This is Zakry’s third world outing but a first for me. I want to make it a memorable one.”
    Thien How-Zakry , ranked 26th in the world, have not achieved any outstanding results in international tournaments this year – except for one good showing at the All-England in March when they reached the quarter-finals.
    Thien How did well at the Sudirman Cup in Qingdao, China but then, he did not play with Zakry.
    Together with his former partner and world junior champion Tan Boon Heong, they shocked Jung Jae-sung-Lee Yong-dae to win a point for Malaysia in a quarter-final tie against South Korea. Malaysia eventually went down 2-3 to South Korea.
    “We will go into the world championships as the unseeded pair. But the underdog tag probably will work well for us.
    “Both of us are training hard and we are also focusing on our physical condition to be in better shape during the world meet,” he said.
    Thien How-Zakry have invited unnecessary attention on themselves after the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) had selected them ahead of former internationals Gan Teik Chai-Tan Bin Shen although the latter had qualified on merit for the world meet.
    All eyes are now on them to see whether they can justify their selection to the world meet.
    “It will be a pressure if we take it as a pressure. A decision has been made for us to compete in the world meet and our job now is to get ourselves in the best form for the challenging time ahead of us.
    “It will not be easy but we will give our best,” said Thien How.
    Currently, Thien How-Zakry and their compatriots and world number 19th Ong Soon Hock-Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari’s places in the elite squad are not assured.
