He played a lacklustre first game against Tommy Sugiarto last night at the Sea Games men's final, but fought bitterly in the second game before succumbing 13-21, 17-21 to the Taiwan Open champion. I saw some flashes of brilliance in his defence and cross court smashes and drops, and dare I say it, some LCW-inspired shots such as his super quick smash returns and net play. Only 169 cm in height, and his best results was quarter finals in the WJC in 2007. Also runner up in the 2010 Malaysia International Challenge. Is he another diamond in the rough, or will he forever be lost in the crowd of young players the BAM is "grooming" for possible future success?
