    Coach: Chinese Doubles Need Learn How to Control Game


    Xinhuanet 2002-05-17 23:09:30

    GUANGZHOU, South China, May 17 (Xinhuanet) -- After China were
    sunk by Malaysia 3-1 in a four-hour semi-final tie at the Thomas
    Cup, an expert said here on Friday that the Chinese men's doubles
    players need to learn how to control their games.
    The Chinese doubles boast speed, power and fighting spirit. The
    only thing they need is the knack of how to control the pace of
    the game," said Malaysia doubles head coach Park Joo Bong.
    His remarks came when throughout all the four matches China
    played at the Thomas Cup World Team Badminton Championships,
    Chinese doubles claimed only one big victory in the battle against
    South Korea in their group competition.
    China restructured their doubles line-ups just before the tie
    against South Korea, a change which brought them to a crucial
    victory 4-1 and moved into the semi-finals.
    In the group tie against Denmark, China lost both doubles to
    the Danes. The only complete doubles triumph China achieved were
    in their first group match against Sweden who placed bottom in
    Group A.
    "It seems that sometimes they don't have any strategy in mind
    even when they are taking the lead," Park said.
    Park, who is the coach of current world number one doubles Chan
    Choog Ming/Chew Choon Eng, was originally South Korea's former
    world champion in doubles.
    He had a glorious career with five mixed doubles and doubles
    titles at the world championships and a coveted doubles gold medal
    at the Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992.

    Razif Sidek, the amiable half of the doubles pair

    recently commented that China doubles tend to play a very

    simple and uncomplicated game based on speed and power

    with very little variety in the form of strokes or tactics.Maybe it is

    because of 7 points system.
