    Experiment with two options

    Why not?
    When there is a problem of trust and confidence, it is difficult or it will take a long time to fix it regardless of promises.By which time it may be too late to swing it for OG08.
    Rexy could perhaps experiment with ccm/kkk and hth/tbh.
    Field kkk/tbh and ccm/hth pairs for SS and ccm/kkk and hth/tbh options for GP Gold.(GP Gold are likely to be as competitive as SS because all are chasing OG ranking points.) See which partnerships work better. Look at the KOR. They are experimenting such that one has no clue which pair options they will eventually choose for OG08.
    Nowadays, with NSS, there is no clear disadvantage in fielding a new pair. IN fact , considering the kind of upsets so far, new pairs seem to have some advantage. And there's no sure advantage in being seeded anymore.
    But for OG08, historical indications favour veterans with considerable big stage experience.Has first timers ever won an OG medal?

    I think IF their attitude during the games itself did not changed , whoever they partnered will have not much impact ...:rolleyes:

    What's wrong with their attitude? They are just having partnership problems, that's why they lost. They haven't lost their skills. It's good for them to change partners for different tournaments then they'll know which partnership works better.Some things you have to try out to know. Prediction has often not tallied with actual outcome so far.

    Rexy knows how well KKK/CCM can work together

    Hi pjswift,

    Yes, I couldn't agree more with you.

    If I were BAM, I would entrust Rexy with his experiment/selection of different partnerships.

    However, knowing BAM, I would not be surprised that they are the ones who select partnerships... and then asking Rexy to work on them. But I could be wrong in saying this about BAM... because it was Rexy's idea to pair KKK/TBH together in the first instance.

    Of course, Rexy knows very well how KKK/CCM can work together. He coached them before the KKK/TBH partnership was experimented.

    Decisions, decisions... that's what makes life interesting !!! :):):)

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    What KKK has said

    Badminton: Rexy snubs players
    By RAJES PAUL

    [​IMG]

    KUALA LUMPUR: A usually jovial Rexy Mainaky was awfully quiet during the national men's doubles training session at Gymnasium II in Bukit Jalil yesterday.

    The Indonesian coach hardly spoke to the pairs, including the two who are gearing up for the Macau Open next week – Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong and Gan Teik Chai-Lin Woon Fui.

    But the “cold treatment” from Rexy has only fired up Kien Keat to bring back the cheers to the team.

    “The training used to be very lively but it is much quieter now. Probably, he (Rexy) is still upset with some of us (following a string of disappointing results),” said Kien Keat.

    “But we will take this approach as a new challenge. We have to get on and concentrate on working hard in training. Hopefully, we will get back to our winning ways.”

    The 22-year-old Kien Keat hoped that there would be support from all quarters even though they had come up short of expectations in the World Championships last month and in the recent Japan Open.

    “It is when we are down that we need everyone to rally their support behind us. We hope the coaches, officials and our team-mates will be there to support one and another,” he said.

    “Overall, I think the men's doubles have done quite well this year. Except for the Japan Open, we had at least one pair in the semi-finals in every other tournament. But, I guess, more is expected out of us.”

    Kien Keat did not want to go into the details on a recent strained relationship with Boon Heong but said that they wished not to be distracted again on the road to their ultimate aim to win gold at the Beijing Olympics next year.

    “There were problems but that is in the past. I now have more confidence in him,” he said.

    “I thought it was a fluke when we won the gold medal at the Asian Games (in Doha last December). But we started winning more titles. We know that we were up there (among the best) but there was something lacking in our partnership.

    “We are learning from our mistakes and hopefully, our partnership will grow stronger. We may go through ups and downs but our ultimate goal remains the same – to do well at the Olympics.”

    In the Macau Open, Kien Keat-Boon Heong are the seeded seconds and they have in their quarter South Koreans Jung Jae-sung-Lee Yong-dae in their quarter.

    “We have never played against them.

    “If we get to play against them and win, it would mean having beaten all the top pairs in the world since we started out together last year (in October). That will be another motivation for us,” said Kien Keat.

    Some of us isn't quite right. :cool:
    If Rexy is upset with anyone, it must be with KKK.

    This must surely be a joke.
    KKK, with his showy errors, is the weak one in the combination. :)
    The question is whether TBH (or Rexy or the BAM or the Malaysian public) has any confidence in KKK. :rolleyes:

    I'd say these were lacking in KKK's game:
    Court-craft, concentration, teamwork and, most of all, humility.
    There's time yet to learn.

    Here's wishing KKK-TBH all the best. :)
