    They upset Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong at the Kuala Lumpur Open 2011. Will this pair replace their seniors and reach greater heights in the future?

    I woke up in the middle of the night for no reason, about 3AM. Flipped on the TV to see whether there is any badminton match still going on as I learnt about the delayed telecast from george. Saw them down 15-16 in the third game against KKK/TBH. They were energetic and powerful in their attacks while KKK/TBH seemed to be struggling with their defence and kept lifting the shuttle. As they kept lifting, this energetic pair just kept smashing home. Nothing special shown by Chooi/Ow, but I like their spirit.

    Wah, so fast open new thread for Ow/Chooi. Assuming they will be permanent pair, I reckon they will take 2 more years. They need to breakthru with a small international title like International CHallenge.

    Ya. KKK/TBH lost is nothing special.

    Congrats to the pair who slap their face. Forget abt OG2012 and WC.

    That's why I said they were nothing special. They lost to CPS/OJG in straight games.

    Astro 801 is showing a repeat of the earlier match between Lydia and TYJ which Lydia won. Ow/Chooi's match is the last and I can't stay awake until then. Anyone knows the result?

    Now, after watching that match, i think the Professor who commented negatively on KKK is justified...from what i observed, it seems KKK is the reason why they lost...his unforced error is too many liao...too fired up is a bad thing...Tan on the other hand played well.

    My two cents, Yao Han and Boon Heong would make a very lethal and unbeatable partnership...both of them has a kind of calmness and steadiness while playing under intense pressure...well i dont see this in KKK or Chooi's gameplay...in fact, those two contributed lots of "bonus" points to their opponents and thus their elimination. :rolleyes:

    Koo Kien Keat has better mental toughness than Tan Boon Heong. Watch the finals of the All-England, the WC, etc. It's because he is the playmaker that's why he has many mistakes. When it's not his day, it can be disastrous.

    I agree with you, however that Chooi Kah Ming is pretty weak and Ow Yao Han is exceptional.

    That's one of the reason why I surprise a thread on Ow/Chooi is started so fast, cos I think they will change partner. Chooi physical strength not improved since his junior days? Every time I watch Chooi, I keep thinking he needs to take more muscle building vitamins, lol.

    Ow with TBH, at international stage, I think Ow will get nervous(he does), still rookie. Interesting to watch though. After OG 2012, good to try out.

    They stand no chance.

    Beating KKK/TBH is something rather easy IF compare to the other top guns. So many pairs/scratch pairs/low-ranked pairs/74th WR pair/no WR pair did that before.

    I dun think Ow will get nervous, may be for the beginning short period . Ow has same type of character as Tan Boon Heong - very calm and like to plan they strategy .... Even Rexy sifu - Christian Hadinata like Tan Boon Heong style of palying !
