    [h=2]Ramdan gets another chance for selection trial[/h]BY RAJES PAUL

    KUALA LUMPUR: Former men’s singles national champion Misbun Ramdan Misbun did not show up for the Thomas Cup Finals selection trial at Stadium Juara in Bukit Kiara – but he still has a chance to fight for a spot.
    Only three men’s singles players – back-up Goh Soon Huat and independent shuttlers Mohd Arif Abdul Latif and Tan Chun Seang – took part in Wednesday’s Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) selection trial for the Finals in New Delhi from May 18-25.
    Two others – former world junior champion Zulfadli Zulkiffli and Chan Kwong Beng – skipped the trial.
    National singles coach Rashid Sidek said that Ramdan had asked for a two-day grace period as he had just arrived from Romania on Tuesday night.
    The 23-year-old Ramdan, the son of Misbun Sidek, did well to win his first international title this year – at the Romanian International on Sunday. It was his fifth international crown since leaving BAM to become an independent player in January last year.
    “Ramdan only arrived yesterday and had appealed to BAM to give him some time as he is keen to take part in the trial. BAM have given him a chance to compete in the trial on Friday,” said Rashid.
    On Wednesday, only one match was played – with Soon Huat defeating Arif 21-14, 23-21. After the defeat, Arif withdrew from the trial.
    Rashid said that Soon Huat will take on Chun Seng on Thursday and Ramdan on Friday. Only one ticket is available for the Thomas Cup Finals’ singles team as the first three slots have been taken by world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei, Chong Wei Feng and Liew Daren.
    In the men’s doubles, professionals Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif-Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari could not play as a pair due to an injury to Fairuzizuan.
    Zakry then teamed up with back-up shuttler Tan An Khang and the duo went down 20-22, 18-21 to Chooi Kah Ming-Teo Ee Yi. The other pairs who took part were Nelson Heg Wei Keat-Low Juan Shen and Chan Peng Soon-Ow Yao Han.
    National doubles coach Pang Cheh Chang said that there was only one spot up for grabs in the men’s doubles. BAM have confirmed Tan Wee Kiong-Hoon Thien How, Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem and Tan Boon Heong for the Finals.
    “It is unfortunate that Fairuzizuan could not play because his eye was swollen after accidentally being hit during a training session with Zakry,” said Cheh Chang.
    “Zakry partnered with our back-up player ... he withdrew from the trial after losing the match. We just need one more player to complete the cast and we’ll decide after the trial.”
    In another men’s doubles match on Wednesday, Peng Soon-Yao Han defeated Wei Keat-Juan Shen 21-15, 20-22, 21-7.
    Former international Koo Kien Keat, who was invited for the trial, could not attend because of his commitment as a club player with Granular in Thailand.
    In the women’s doubles, the Ng sisters – Hui Lin and Hui Ern – also could not make it for the Uber Cup Finals selection trial because of their studies in England. They will only complete their studies in June.

    Why Darren Liew is given a slot for the Thomas Cup? The slot should give it to Goh Soon Huat/Ramdan...

    It will be interesting to see who gets the final slot for MD... either CPS or Yao Han...

    LD's services are not needed in Thomas Cup. CHN has many capable 3rd singles players.

    KUALA LUMPUR: Back-up shuttler Goh Soon Huat is set to be included in the Malaysian team for the Thomas Cup Finals in New Delhi from May 18-25.

    The 24-year-old showed speed and power to beat former international Tan Chun Seang 21-14, 21-13 to finish tops in the three-day selections trials at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara on Friday. It was his second win after having beaten former international Mohd Arif Abdul Latif on Wednesday.

    Two others – former national champion Misbun Ramdan Misbun and former world junior champion Zulfadli Zulkiffli – blew their chances to make their maiden appearances in the Finals when they pull out of the trials. Both independent shuttlers showed up at the stadium on Friday but withdrew because of illness.

    The coaches will now submit Soon Huat’s name to the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) for approval. Based on his fighting display and steely determination, he is likely to be endorsed as the fourth men’s singles player for the Finals.

    World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei, Chong Wei Feng and Liew Daren have confirmed their places. The closing date to submit the players’ names to Badminton World Federation (BWF) is May 4.

    Soon Huat said that he had done his best and would leave his fate to the coaches.

    “Based on my first-place finish in the trials, I have strengthened my chances of representing the country in the Finals as the fourth ranked player. I am quite excited about it,” said Soon Huat, who is troubled by a knee injury.

    “I was a sparring partner for the team when the Finals was held in Wuhan (2012). I saw and experienced the atmosphere during the Finals. I am looking forward to a taste of it now as a member of the team.”

    Soon Huat did well last year when he reached the final of the Malaysia Open Grand Prix Gold at Juara Stadium but an illness hampered his progress. He suffered constant dizzy spells and even fainted while in action during the Indonesia Open GP Gold in September. Due to his condition, the world No. 105 only competed in seven international tournaments for the last one year.

    “The doctors found a blood clot in the area near my brain. It could have been because of a hard fall when I was younger or it could have been a virus, but the doctors could not confirm it. I went for a surgery in October to have the blood clot removed.
    “I am playing better now and hope to keep the momentum going,” said Soon Huat, who will next take part in the Malaysia Open GP at Pasir Gudang on Wednesday.

    Meanwhile, Ow Yao Han-Chan Peng Soon were the winners of the men’s doubles trials. They defeated Low Juan Shen-Nelson Heg Wei Keat 19-21, 21-16, 21-18 to keep their unbeaten run intact on Friday.

    Two pairs – Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong, Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem and Tan Boon Heong – have already confirmed their places for the Finals, leaving the coaches to pick either Yao Han or Peng Soon for the fifth spot.

    THE TENTATIVE LIST
    Thomas Cup
    Singles: Lee Chong Wei, Chong Wei Feng, Liew Daren, Goh Soon Huat.
    Doubles: Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong, Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem, Tan Boon Heong, Chan Peng Soon or Ow Yao Han.
    Uber Cup
    Singles: Tee Jing Yi, Yang Li Lian, Lim Chiew Sien, Lim Yin Fun.

    KUALA LUMPUR: Rashid Sidek is glad to be back at the national training centre as the singles chief coach to restore order to the daily programme for players and coaches.
    Since Rashid’s and Tan Kim Her’s removal as chief coaches of the singles and doubles department last September, the coaches in the national team have not had a leader among them to communicate their plans and programmes.
    All of them were approached individually depending on which working committee they had to report to.
    On Thursday, the Badminton Association of Malaysia’s (BAM) exco decided that they needed a chief coach for both the singles and doubles departments after their failure to find a supremo to handle the national team.
    Their plan to re-hire Datuk Misbun Sidek as the national coaching director fell through when the latter turned down the offer.
    While the BAM exco have named Rashid as the singles chief coach, they are unable to name anyone for the doubles department. For the time being, it looks like Rashid’s responsibility will extend to overseeing all coaches until the BAM names a leader for the doubles department.
    Kim Her’s contract has been extended and he will continue to look after the men’s doubles back-up shuttlers.
    Rashid, who is glad to be back at the helm, said that his number one priority is to keep the team together in their preparations for the Thomas and Uber Cup Finals in New Delhi from May 18-25.
    “I am honoured to be the head again. For now, I will make sure that our team’s preparations are on track for the Thomas and Uber Cup Finals,” he said.
    Rashid, who was the recipient of the 2012 Coach of the Year award, has an important role – to plan and strategise the team’s approach for both the Thomas and Uber Cup Finals.
    He has to ensure that his team are ready with the head-to-head information of their players against all their opponents. He will also have to facilitate the motivational camp and build confidence, and determine the probable line-ups by working closely with the coaches. All this, while also working closely with the National Sports Institute (NSI) experts to tap the best from all their players – physically, mentally and technically.
    Fortunately, all these responsibilities are not new to Rashid and his coaches as they had done so before as a team.
    For now, though, Rashid’s immediate task is to get the players psyched up for the Malaysia Open Grand Prix Gold starting on Wednesday in Pasir Gudang, Johor. The bulk of the players from the national team are competing against promising stars from China, India, Japan, Indonesia and Taiwan.
    In the men’s singles, in the absence of world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei, Liew Daren and Iskandar Zulkarnain Zainuddin, Malaysia are pinning their hopes on Chong Wei Feng, Soo Teck Zhi, Chong Yee Han, Mohd Nur Azriyn Ayub, Goh Soon Huat, Goh Giap Chin and several independent shuttlers like former world junior champion Zulfadli Zulkiffli, Mohd Arif Abdul Latif, Kuan Beng Hong and K. Yogendran.
    Last year, Malaysia only won one title through Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem in the men’s doubles, while Soon Huat let slip a chance to nail his first international title after losing to Alamsyah Yunus of Indonesia in the men’s singles final.

    [h=2]Thomas Cup: Malaysia get Germany, South Korea and India[/h]PASIR GUDANG: Malaysia’s strength as a team may have been diluted but there is still a good chance for them to reach at least the quarter-finals of the Thomas Cup Finals in New Delhi from May 18-25.

    This is Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) secretary Ng Chin Chai’s assessment after the draw for the prestigious team event was released on Sunday.

    Malaysia have been drawn in Group C with South Korea, Germany and India.

    Malaysia have not finalised their team but Lee Chong Wei, Chong Wei Feng, Liew Daren, Goh Soon Huat, Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong, Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem, Tan Boon Heong and, most likely, his partner Ow Yao Han are set to make the trip.

    Chin Chai said that Malaysia could top Group C by riding on the strength of the ever-dependable Chong Wei and two doubles pairs, although they have been inconsistent of late.

    “I’m quite confident that we can enter the quarter-finals. In fact, based on team strength in our group, we have a chance to be group champions,” said Chin Chai.

    “South Korea will be without two of their top doubles players (Lee Yong-dae and Kim Ki-jung). I think our top singles players – Chong Wei and Wei Feng are more superior than Shon Wan-ho and Lee Dong-keun.”

    Yong-dae and Ki-jung, who partnered Ko Sung-hyun and Kim Sa-rang respectively, are serving one-year bans for their no-show during a doping test.

    Although Malaysia went down to a shocking defeat to Germany in the Sudirman Cup last year, Chin Chai believes than Chong Wei and Co are stronger than the European team in the men’s team event.

    “The Sudirman Cup is different because it’s a mixed team event. In the men’s team, I think we have better depth compared to the Germans,” said Chin Chai.

    “India’s men’s singles players have improved but we can still take one point through Chong Wei. Our men’s doubles are better and should take two points.”

    Chin Chai said that it was important for Malaysia to become group champions in order to avoid other seeded teams – like defending champions China or the much-improved Indonesia.

    “The top two teams will advance to the knockout stage where a fresh draw will be made but the top four seeded teams will be in different quarters,” he said.

    “It is best that we become group champions and avoid the seeded teams in the quarter-finals. If everything goes well, I believe we can even make it to the semis.”

    Malaysia were beaten 3-0 by China in the quarter-finals two years ago in Wuhan. Then, Chong Wei did not play against China after injuring his ankle while playing against Peter-Gade Christensen during a group tie against Denmark.

    Korea has never been afraid of mixing it up in the MD, and between KoSH, YooYS, ShinBC, and KimSR they have a formidable lineup. Remember Ko/Yoo were as high as WR3 as well as WC runner ups in 2011
