    This is the comment from md chief MD Tan Kim Her recently, after Ow Yao Han partner Tan Wee Keong to best Indonesia Olympic Champion Kido/Hendrawan...

    “I’m also impressed with Yao Han as he is the one player in the doubles squad who has improved the most.

    Well, Ow was always the talented one from the youngsters, I never thought much of Chooi or Yew HK when I watched them during WJC. I think CKM is better than YKH though.

    Among the young ones, I say Tan Wee Kiong, Mak Hee Chun, Goh Wei Shem are the other ones with talent ;)

    time to revive this thread...!!

    recent MAS GPG Ow/Chooi made it as runner-up losing to senior and MAS No.1 Koo/Tan. But I predict this young pair one day will become the next MAS No.1, only they not follow Koo/Tan's way (of destruction)...

    currently their target ranking for this year to be top 30 in the world, hope they can make it happen...

    They are rank #256 as of last week. Way to go unless they win some big ones like the two (when they burst into the scene during their early years) who are going downhill.

    This pair is ranked 134th with only ONE tournament, since they actually obtained zero ranking points from the Finnish Open due to giving walkover. (When Ow's father passed away) Pretty impressive!

    Do not ignore the others

    By K.M. BOOPATHY | boopathy@mediaprima.com.my

    PAY ATTENTION: BAM should focus more on Yao Han-Kah Ming and Nelson-Ee Yi There are others who need attention even as the BA of Malaysia is close to giving up on the misfiring Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong.

    Two pairs of former world junior champions -- Ow Yao Han-Chooi Kah Ming and Nelson Heg-Teo Ee Yi -- have suffered due to the BAM's tendency to focus on the seniors.
    National doubles coach Tan Kim Her has started to rely on Goh V Shem-Lim Khim Wah and Tan Wee Kiong-Hoon Thien How for results following the decline of Kien Keat-Boon Heong.
    But that is only a short term solution and BAM should focus on developing its former world junior champions in the world's best.
    Yao Han-Kah Ming are currently ranked World No 30 without any significant results while Nelson-Ee Yi have not been making much headway, their only success was winning the Finnish Open.
    Their progress is not encouraging when they have been touted as the pairs who will be battling the seniors for tickets to the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.
    In comparison in Indonesia, Angga Pratama, who played in the 2009 World Juniors with Rendy Sugiarto, has already established himself as the nation's No 2 while Ryan Agung Saputra is already ranked World No 8.
    Qiu Zihan of China, who competed in the 2008 World Juniors which saw Kah Ming reaching the semis with Pang Zheng Ling, is already an All England champion with Liu Xiaolong and they are currently ranked World No 6.
    Another player from the 2008 edition who has made the grade is South Korean Kim Ki Jung who is ranked World No 5 with Kim Sa Rang while Malaysians Mak Hee Chun-Teo Kok Siang, who were World Juniors champions, have vanished.
    Hee Chun was dropped from the national squad last year while Kok Siang is heading nowhere with Ong Jian Gup at the moment.
    Former international Cheah Soon Kit recently stressed the need for BAM and the men's doubles coaches, in particular, to push the juniors in order to have strong replacements as Kien Keat-Boon Heong's careers are not expected to last long but there is little progress in Yao Han-Kah Ming and Nelson-Ee Yi.
    "It is always good to have one or two strong back-up pairs to complement the seniors and if BAM and the coaches had put in the efforts, they will not be in the current situation where the senior pair is not performing and there are no capable young pairs," Soon Kit had said.
    Kim Her has given the two pairs plenty of exposure but what is lacking is the emphasis on them in training.
    Reshuffling the pairs could be an option after the World Championships but the new combination must be able to progress fast and make a strong impact in the next two years.
    The national junior programme based at Bukit Jalil Sports School is already struggling to produce top class talents and the onus is on Kim Her to ensure the current back-up pairs make the grade fast.

    I heard that this young pairs will play together again in the coming China Grand Prix Open 2015. Let's hope that both of these former great men doubles champion can still continue to shine again in future tournaments. Can't wait to see both of them in action again. I also heard that Ow Yao Han / Chooi Kah Ming partnership will be retained under the new men doubles strategy. Another former junior men doubles pair partnership that will be retained is Mak Hee Chun / Teo Kok Siang. They will also be playing together again in China Grand Prix Open 2015. Let's also hope that this former great men doubles champion can also continue to shine again in future tournaments.

    I also heard that with senior players retiring more emphasis will be given to the juniors now and lets just hope that this strategy will work and lets hope that the men doubles junior player can still play very well just like their good olden days during their junior time.

    Well ow Yao Han / chooi kah Ming has been spilt since both of them played in the senior team. I still remembered that both of them are former world junior champions. Well I hope that both of them will now produce good results together since they have been paired up again recently. Well for this China masters it will be their second tournament this year and their result in this tournament will be able to at least hint us on whether this new partnership will work out or not.

    Hi. hi... No worries here. Okay this is only their second tournament together plus Wang Yilv / Zhang Wen is also quite an established China MD. Maybe Chooi Kah Ming is tired because he needs to play in MD and MX for this China Open.
