    That's a shame. Sonia must be the only pro player not to have her bio and pics up on her own thread, where even the Op doesn't really care... :( I thought she would have deserved a little more respect... Boleh? ;) :)

    Soniia has the will and determination. I would think encouragement and support from all will give her the boost.

    She has the personality and grace to succeed and she spoke well in her interview which accounts for her intelligent.
    Even her studies to her name has been make into a debate and joke.

    give her some due respect lah.

    Give a Malaysian Woman Single a good boost and say nice thing. Haiya.

    Support Her... give her a self belief we Malaysian also have a capable Ladies Single.
    Give her a chance.

    That's hardly the same thing. Most Westerners complimented their sport career with education (sport physcology, sport science etc). It's very clear in their mind that sport is the thing they wanna excel at. For example Tine was studying nutrition so she knows what food to take to maintain her performance on court. Asians on the other hand take sport as a part time job, something they can do with or without. Something good to have but if they failed, they will become professional workers. So tell me how does a law degree help your badminton career?

    Sure we would like to encourage her if her mind is solely about badminton. But, if she is one of the many Malaysian badminton players I seen in the past, taking sport as a alternative career then don't you think is better for her to pursue the law profession entirely so that she won't waste her time and giving other ambitious player a chance to get selected to the national team?

    We are just discussing (on a general note, not targeting her particularly) how one can juggle between sport and education anyway. I hope Sonia won't take this personally. Of course, if she feels she can succeed by juggling between studies and badminton, feel free to prove me wrong, I will be more than happy to eat humble pie if she becomes the next pillar of WS in Malaysia.

    After watching her matches at the Axiata Cup and if she continues to improve, she will be the next no.1 WS for MAS.

    No doubt, Wong Tat Meng is a good coach. Saw how Sonia played in her few matches. Sonia has good potential compared with Lydia and Jing Yi. If Sonia can increase her physical strength, agility, consistentcy and thinking side of her game, she shall be one of the world top player.

    I take a different view on this. Coming to law degree specifically, I think even badminton associations needs lawyers. Don't you think a former player cum lawyer would fit that role well provided she proves to be a good lawyer too. By being a player and a lawyer she will possess a good sports administrator acumen. Its good to have an college degree that augments a sportsperson's career like Tine's education in nutrition. But in today's world I think its up to an individual how he/she puts their education to good use. Although I am using all the big words here but its all about realizing one's potential. I see good potential in her but only time will tell whether she will succeed or not.

    Its debatable that some other player is being denied a chance to get in to the national team because of her. Selectors will select Sonia not because she is working really hard to become a lawyer and a player, but because she is a better player. You are not completely wrong but I think its not her fault if she gets selected or if she is better than someone else. I am not trying to prove you wrong but its just my personal opinion and I completely understand where you are coming from. My point is what else can BAM do if there is no other better player currently available other than Sonia.
