    There we go again ...

    The Pahang Open only confirmed our nightmare about Malaysian players, consistently inconsistent. So far only Lee Chong Wei is considered consistent and he is still not the same level as Lin Dan and Taufik, what hope do we have on the coming World Championship?

    Interesting. I thought Chan/Koo are the future of Malaysian MD, and Wong CH and his partner beat them so easily. And he played so well in XD in Sudriman Cup. If he concentrates on XD and MD instead of MS, he may be as good as Kim Dong Moon or even better.

    Let's not be so pessimatic

    Lcw is definitely a different kettle of fish compared to the other Malaysian players,present or past.If u did watch his Sudirman cup tie against the Japanese player whom he disposed off 15-0,15-2 then u would not consider him as no hope in the coming wc.All he needs is to believe in himself,he is wc material,no doubt about it.Go for it chong wei.

    This Pahang Open serves as a warm-up for the nationals. The inconsistency showns in our national players. However there is till time to correct some of the mistakes. IMO there is nothing much to worry about :). We will just have to see in the up coming Aviva Spore and Malaysian Open.

    So unfortunate for KKK to withdraw. It will be an exciting match to watch.

    News from unconfirmed source, Wong Choong Hann/Chew Choon Eng will take part in future international tourneys. In an informal MD stimulation practise competition held last month, WCH/CCE pair defeated all their teammates in national squad to win the champion.

    Maybe it's time for him to do so next year?

    Post-match. Chong Wei & Mew Choo not very happy

    Yap Kim Hock(CHIEF COACH):"We are very happy to see the standard of ms players become closer after the arrival of Li Mao. They have more internal positive competition now, that will improve our overall strength. I see this as a huge boost because next year we have Thomas Cup."

    "I am satisfied with their form. I believe they can peak in the coming 2 months for WC"

    And YKH was happy with Lee Tsuen Send and Yeoh Kay Bin. Lee Tsuen Seng upset Choong Hann in quarterfinal. While Yeoh Kay Bin lost to world no.6 Hafiz Hashim 16-17, 15-7, 16-17.

    "Especially Lee Tsuen Seng and Yeoh Kay Bin. They brought surprises to us. The reason Tsuen Seng defeated Choong Hann is not because Choong Hann lose his pace, Tsuen Seng played really well. From here, we can see that Tsuen Seng still has a lot of potential inside. But we need to improve his stamina

    "Yeoh Kay Bin lost after giving Hafiz a real challenge. Before this, Hafiz can play Kay Bin on his palm if they meet, but now it's different."

    While being opstimistic for MS, YKH is worrying about Chan Chong Ming's left shoulder injury.
    "TBS/OSH won the champion, they have been improving very well. We all already see how WCH/CCE had also improved our overall MD strength. I will also give LWW/CTF one month time for them to find their rhythm back. But my greatest worry is still CCM's injury.""

    Lee Chong Wei (MS CHAMPION):
    "This is the worst match I ever play in local circuit. Too many mistakes, my attacks weren't so smooth, and I wasn't very accurate with my timing today."

    "Compare to last year, Roslin had improved a lot. He played a more attacking than a defensive game, and he becomes much quicker
    "

    Lee Chong Wei was not satisfied nad not very happy with his performance after defeating Roslin. When the game just started, Chong Wei couldn't find his rhythm, and a lot of mistakes, tailing 0-6, 4-10. Roslin was a quicker and more attacking man on court.

    At second set, Chong Wei led by 9-5 although once trailing by 1-5. However, Roslin didnot give up. The score become 10-10. At this moment, a controversial out ball (which is against Chong Wei) restore Chong Wei's spirit. And he wrap up the game by 15-10.



    Wong Mew Choo(WS CHAMPION):
    "I really perform very very poor in this tournament, I couldn't find my rhythm. I was struggling to win every game."

    "Li Mao told me I should be more tricky."

    Julia Wong was once at the edge of bringing the final into rubber games, leading 10-5, before she was tamed by Mew Choo's experience.


    Tan Bin Shen/Ong Soon Hock
    (MD CHAMPION):

    Ong Soon Hock: "This is my best father's day present. I am very happy, because this is our first crown since we partner "

    Tan Bin Shen: "Wong Choong Hann and Chew Choon Eng had too many mistakes. They actually didn't play at their level. This champion doesn't really mean a lot, because the standard of every double pair in national squad is very close to each other.

    Our aim is to upset some seeded pairs in the coming WC in August"
