The Star Friday February 2, 2007 Rexy tells under-achieving duo to stay home and train KUALA LUMPUR: The national doubles pair of Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Lin Woon Fui have fallen out of favour with coach Rexy Mainaky following their uninspiring performances in the first two Open tournaments of the year. They will not get to play in the Swiss Open next month. And this is a blow to the world number 12 pair. Despite their higher world rankings, they are the only national pair who will miss the fourth leg of the Super Series. The others – Choong Tan Fook-Lee Wan Wah, Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, Gan Teik Chai-Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif, Tan Bin Shen-Ong Soon Hock and Chan Chong Ming-Hoon Thien How – will take part in both the All-England in Birmingham (March 6-11) and the Swiss Open in Basel (March 13-18). At the season-opening Malaysian Open, Fairuzizuan-Woon Fui were beaten in the second round by Japanese Shuichi Sakamoto-Shintaro Ikeda. In the Korean Open last week, Poland’s Michal Logosz-Robert Mateusiak sent them packing in the first round. Rexy said that he had hoped the duo would regain his confidence in them at the All-England. “They only get to go for the All-England. Their performances in the first two Opens were not up to the mark. They were not supposed to lose to those pairs. Unlike Zakry-Gan and Tan Fook-Wan Wah, they did not improve on their performances in the Korean Open,” said Rexy. “Now, they don't have to worry about the Swiss Open and can concentrate fully only on getting their act right in the All-England. They reached the semi-finals last year and I hope to see another good run from them.” Rexy added that the other pair could expect to be treated in the same way if they failed to live up to expectations in international tournaments. “I would prefer them to stay home and work on their game if they do not come up to the mark,” he said. Prior to the All-England, Fairuzizuan-Woon Fui will compete in the Proton National Grand Prix Finals, which begin on Thursday in Kuala Terengganu. And it will do their confidence some good if they manage to win the national title for the second time. They were the champions in 2005.
