    Badminton: Daren takes Taufik to the distance before losing in thriller

    PETALING JAYA: World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei sailed into the second round of the Indonesian Open but it was Liew Daren who stole the limelight by stretching Indonesian ace Taufik Hidayat in another epic three-match thriller in Jakarta yesterday.

    Daren, who many expected would surrender meekly to Taufik in front of the boisterous Indonesian fans, fought tooth and nail before finally going down 28-30, 23-21, 12-21 in 76 minutes.

    This is the second time that Daren, ranked 64th in the world, had taken Taufik to the distance. Daren had lost 24-22, 12-21, 18-21 in the first round of the Singapore Open last week.

    Despite the defeats, there is a slight improvement in the lanky Daren’s game.

    “At least we can see some improvement in Daren’s game and it’s a good sign that he may be catching up with the top players,” said national singles coach Rashid Sidek yesterday.


    Close encounter: Liew Daren fought tooth and nail with home favourite Taufik Hidayat before losing 28-30, 23-21, 12-21 in the first round of the Indonesian Open in Jakarta Thursday.
    “For him to take Taufik to three games in two tournaments in a row is a positive step and he should continue to train harder and work on rectifying his mistakes. Hopefully, he will reach the top some day.”



    Hopefully he keeps his consistency, so far Liew Daren has done pretty well after his disastrous outing in the Thailand Open. I had given up hope on him some time ago but he seems pretty persistent, I am starting to hope on this shuttler again. :) He has shown better results than his batch, and hopefully grow to become clear-cut better than the others and stay injury-free.

    For the sake of generating less negative posts(and putting less pressure on LDR as well) in the future, please don't bother and continue stick to your original expectations:p. Leave him alone and let him develop his game for now,thank you;).

    I don't expect him to win in the local circuits, his game is known too well by the other backup players. Rather look forward to his next international assignment, probably at Macau and Chinese Taipei.

    As long as he is willing to fight with the right mentality, he should be able to do it. ;) It's all mental now. ;)

    James: Daren needs to work more closely with Chong Wei to improve

    By RAJES PAUL

    KUALA LUMPUR: Singles shuttler Liew Daren is back in the good books of the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) following his fighting displays at the back-to-back Opens in Singapore and Indonesia.
    And BAM’s high performance director Datuk James Selvaraj wants Daren to rub shoulders more rigorously with world number one Lee Chong Wei to pick up more good traits from the latter for further self-improvement.
    In fact, Daren is now working closely with Chong Wei to provide quality sparring ahead of the World Championships, which will be held in London from Aug 8-14. Daren will also follow Chong Wei for the centralised training at the Bath University from July 27-Aug 4.
    James said that he had once given up hope on Daren after the latter’s uninspiring performances at this year’s Malaysia Open. But Daren has regained his confidence after pushing former world champion Taufik Hidayat to the brink, before losing to him in both the opening rounds of the Singapore and Indonesia Opens.
    “He has improved of late. He pushes himself during training sessions and also did well to make Taufik sweat before losing. He needs to sharpen some of his strokes. And I have asked coach (Teh) Seu Bock to get him close with Chong Wei so that he can emulate our country’s top shuttler to become a better player.
    Daren is one of the three second stringers left in the elite team following the retirement of Tan Chung Seang. The other two are Chan Kwong Beng and Chong Wei Feng.
    Daren will take part in the Kedah Open from July 13-17 and a good showing will prove that his performances at the Singapore and Indonesia Open were not flukes.
    He is seeded fourth and players in his half are World Championships-bound Wong Choong Hann, Kwong Beng and Chun Seang. The top seed and hot favourite is Chong Wei.
    Besides the assessment on Daren, James also gave his analysis on the contrasting performances of Chong Wei and Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong in his report, which was submitted to the BAM’s coaching and training committee on Saturday.
    Chong Wei nailed the Indonesia Open title but Kien Keat-Boon Heong crashed out in the quarter-finals and the defeat had put a damper in the duo’s preparation for the World Championships.
    “Chong Wei is playing exceptional badminton now but we do not see the same urgency, as far as winning is concerned, among the elite players in the men’s doubles department. I have suggested that we put a time frame for them to buck up or else, we have to move on with others,” he said.
    “Both Koo and Tan will undergo conditioning training for the next six weeks leading to the world championships. Focus will be on skill work and also their physical fitness and we want to do our best to motivate them ahead of the world meet,” he said.
    Apart from giving his input on the elite players progress at the recent Indonesia Open, James also shared his findings after having spoken to a few top figures from other badminton nations – especially Indonesia, India and Thailand.
    In fact, he visited Indonesia’s national training centre in Cipayung to learnt on how Indonesia conduct their training programme for their back-up and elite shuttlers. He came out impressed with the team unity and camaraderie.
    He said that it was important for Malaysia to have a well equipped training centre and he hopes that the BAM would get moving on their plans to set up a new national training centre off the Kesas Highway in Awan Besar.

    Well, if that's the talent we have..just have to hope for the best.
    He has shown potential, but stretching top players to 3 sets and lost is pointless, at least he needs to beat players of his standards, e.g. Dionysius, Tommy Sugiarto, Jan O Jorgensen, Nguyen Tien Minh and Japanese players to show that he has achieved some form of breakthrough..

    Terrible news... Liew Daren has picked up another injury... he retired against Chan Kwong Beng after losing the first game and trailing in the second.


    Question : Why are they so many players who retired here in the Kedah Open? :confused:

    We need Sports Scientists' help

    .
    Sad news; To hear that Liew Daren has picked up another injury. :(:(:(

    I wonder if the Sports Scientists employed by BAM are monitoring how BAM players are training and/or are performing at tournaments.

    It's here, where we need Sports Scientists' help.

    More ranking points for Liew Daren coming in soon as he has progressed to the third round in the Vietnam Open. He will face Misbun Ramdan Misbun and if he makes it, it will be a quarter-final finish as he is not expected to get past NTM.

    Hopefully he reaches the QF.

    From the way I see NTM play against P. Kashyap that day, I doubt that Daren can pull it off unless NTM suddenly lost all his energy :p

    Nah, don't expect too much. Straight game win by NTM if he meets either LDR or Misbun R.
