    Hehe they have their last chance in the Indonesia Open

    Another 1st round defeat and their chance will disappear forever.

    Thien How-Soon Hock crash out in Jakarta

    Thien How-Soon Hock went down 14-21, 25-21, 15-21 to Indonesia’s Mohd Ahsan-Bona Septano in a 49-minute match.
    Their second consecutive early round defeat in a Super Series tournament after their outing in the Singapore Open last week may dash their hopes of getting into the team for the Commonwealth Games and also the Asian Games.

    No, that day probably won't come for either a long time or not for ever. Hoon/Ong lost their chance, now it's time for Mak/Tan and Chan/Lim to shine!

    They played reasonable ok. But not superb. Many unforced errors. Thriller was on the 2nd set. If they played like how they played in 2nd Set.. they could have won. However AhsanBona had the crowd behind them and keep pressuring the Malaysians. When the crowd cheered.. initially i heard "MakanBola" then.. oh.. Ahsan Bona. It was an exciting match.

    key phrase: perform on and off...

    today can b hero, but tomorrow turn up something else...
    pressure?
    over-confident?
    scare of losing?

    i guess only themselves to know what had happened...

    The difference why we can 'overrate' Mak/Tan but not Hoon/Ong is because :

    When we talk about Mak/Tan, mostly about possible future.
    About Hoon/Ong leh, near the end of the road already, cannot improve much already.

    Zakry hopes to make good his new partnership with Thien How

    http://thestar.com.my/sports/story.asp?file=/2010/9/12/sports/7021862&sec=sports

    By LIM TEIK HUAT

    PETALING JAYA: Celebrating the arrival of the first day of Syawal has offered fresh new hope for shuttler Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif, who is determined to make good his new partnership with Hoon Thien How.
    Mohd Zakry is set to partner Thien How in their first Super Series event at the Japan Open from Sept 22-27 and they hope to achieve their ultimate goal – to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics.
    The stormy three-year partnership of Zakry-Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari came to an end recently when doubles head coach Rexy Mainaky, sensing they getting nowhere, assigned them new partners.
    [​IMG] All pumped up: Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif (right) and Hoon Thien How in action against Denmark’s Lars Paaske and Jonas Rasmussen in the Thomas Cup quarter-finals in May. The Malaysians lost but they put up a spirited display.
    Zakry paired up with Thien How to reprise their role in the Thomas Cup Finals in Kuala Lumpur in May while Fairuzizuan formed a new partnership with Ong Soon Hock.
    Fairuzizuan-Soon Hock will be seeing action together for the first time in the China Masters next week.
    Zakry, who bagged two Super Series titles with Fairuzizuan in the Singapore and Indonesian Opens in 2008, said it was all in the past now.
    “My partnership with Fairuzizuan was not going anywhere and we even didn’t qualify for the World Championships this year,” said Zakry.
    “I am sad with the decision (to split us up) as Fairuzizuan is not only my partner but my good friend as well.
    “But I am taking the decision in a positive way as the coach knows what’s best to get our career going again,” added Zakry, whose immediate aim is to rack up the ranking points first.
    “We have no ranking points currently and we have to start working our way up.
    “The 2012 Olympic qualifying period starts from May next year and we have to be ready to start fighting for a spot by then.
    “Anything else, including qualifying for the World Championships, will come along if we are already up there,” said Zakry.
    A country can qualify up to two pairs in the badminton doubles event at the London Olympics but both must be ranked inside the top eight at the end of the one-year qualifying timeline.
    Zakry teamed up with Thien How in the Thomas Cup quarter-final tie against Denmark in May and they almost brought the roof down at the Putra Stadium with their tremendous fighting spirit against veterans Lars Paaske-Jonas Rasmussen in the second doubles match.
    But their lack of experience and consistency during the crucial stages saw Thien How-Zakry going down 26-24, 12-21, 19-21 to the All-England and European champions.
    At the Japan Open, Zakry-Thien How have an easy opening tie against local pair Hirokatsu Hashimoto-Noriyasu Hirata.
    Their path, however, gets bumpy after that.
    Zakry-Thien How will face either South Korea’s Cho Gun-woo-Kwon Yi-goo or second seeds and Olympic champions Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan of Indonesia in the second round.
    Also in the bottom half of the draw are reigning world champions Fu Haifeng-Cai Yun of China, who are seeded fifth.
    The shuttlers are currently enjoying a one-week break and will return to training on Wednesday.

    I think HTH/OSH partnership is history for now....
    hope they can prosper with their new partner
    and achieve some high before they hang-up their weapon...

    Fairuz seems to be the weak link in the Fuzzy pair, not sure about the HTH/OSH pair...
