    Hoon Thien How and Ong Soon Hock are going to be permanent partners I guess. I created this since they are already part of the elite, so that they can join ranks with KKK/TBH and Fuzzy who have their own thread.

    Here is one picture :

    Hoon Thien How is on the right, needless to say, Ong is the one on the left.

    So what do you guys think of this pair?
    Good chance for a title for them at the coming Indian Open, if both play to their full potential.

    is this picture from when they beat LYD/JJS?

    OSH looks like a fatter version of KKK from that angle!

    their edge is mental strength (as compared to other pair), their problem is consistency and stamina.

    Yes. It appears that Hoon Thien How was mentally strong in his match against LP and JR despite the latter two being an established pair with tons of experience!

    consistency and stamina=need more international matches exposure..
    On the 2010 TC performance:
    LP and JR figured out and were able to absorb HTH's smashes in the 2nd & 3rd game...too bad Zakry & HTH couldn't capitalize on the opportunities and made unforced errors at crucial times, esp. in the 3rd game..I wonder if HTH & his regular partner OSH would've won if they were the ones playing???..

    maybe, cos HTH & OSK are regular partner... therefore better combination & understanding among the duo. Anyway, zakry play up to his standard, as he gave some good shots during the game. HTH still nid more exposure, as the final serve showed his mental stability during the crucial moment.

    wow....after so long never log-in, OSH/HTH get their own thread already...
    i hope they are given more chance to compete in SS to gain more exposure
    too bad OSH not that young anymore....maybe the best will be 2-3 years
    more to shine or else....

    ..i think they should be at their peak now, not too old or too young...it's now up to how BAM use them and get them more exposure (for their next big goals: 2012 OG and TC)...IMO, they should get more exposure than Fuzzy pair..

    Unfortunately, their chance has come and gone! :(
    Sorry but time to pave way for Chan/Lim and Mak/Tan.

    2nd match ;)
    Not that it makes a difference that they failed MAS's expectations on them. I think the duo should be replaced with Chan/Lim or Mak/Tan and TCS with CWF.

    this is what i mean by overrated
    they shouldn't waste the fund and the slot
    hoon/ong and fuzzy should move aside
    give the chance for mak/tan,chan/lim

    this is a slap on those people face who claim ong/hoon is a decent pair or bla bla bla
    told u they are just ordinary player
    :rolleyes:

    Lol I overrate them myself by thinking they should win the Indian Open GP although I think that Mak/Tan and Chan/Lim better than them.

    I think he is 24, same age as TBH, no longer considered really young.
    This pair can still improve but if no good result in INA and Singapore SS we should pave way for Chan/Lim and Mak/Tan but cancelling Hoon/Ong and Fuzzy because the Mak/Tan and Chan/Lim are younger and still got room for experience. Not to mention I think this two pairs are better players with more potential. Of course Mak/Tan has to prove their worth by hopefully capturing a GP later... or at least final appearance.
