    Well,KKK/TBH is my favourite players. They always play an intense,full of suprise and breath taking game.Especially during the rally.That's what makes me addicted to watch them play and drives me back on playing badminton...But,by full of suprise,not all of their games are suprisingly happy ending game.People say that they are flashy and that's what makes them loose and disappoint their fans.What do you all think?:rolleyes:

    And does anybody have something interesting about them ? Let's share!:D

    I disagree that flashiness and arrogance causes them to lose the game. Perhaps, that was in the past. However, they are a much more matured pair now. The problem with this pair is that they tend to lose focus towards the end of the game, or at crucial moments. Also, Tan Boon Heong doesn't seem to have the mental toughness and physical ability to play his best when the game goes the full distance, as shown in the 3rd game of the All-England final, he made many errors and seem to lack the deadly sting in his smash. Of course, his smash is still powerful but it is not enough to penetrate top players' defense in the latter half of the third game.

    Also, they don't seem to be able to effectively defeat pairs with excellent defense such as Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae and Ko Sung Hyun/Yoo Yeon Seong.

    I disagree with that assumtion too..for me,they just have to maintain focus and not just block their opponents attack but attack them back as well.Especially in the 3rd game....

    I only saw the last few points. They seemed to be trying to defend only, didn't really take the initiative to attack.

    All the attacking was done by TBH.....Luckily KKK got back in to the game.....They had to play 3 sets against an unseeded and unheard Netherlands pair of Ruud Bosch and Koen Ridder......3rd set belonged to Malaysia......Still go indon pair to play....They r really all offensive.....

    IMHO, they do look a little arrogant. Well young chaps with big achievements can't blame them if they really are. Personally not a fan of them. Dun know why despite them winning matches, it's not enjoyable watching them play. Other MD teams have more color and simply more fun to watch. Perh

    Kim Her finally ready to stop experimenting with doubles partnerships.
    By KNG ZHENG GUAN


    PETALING JAYA: National doubles coach Tan Kim Her is finally ready to stop experimenting and start building a squad for the future.
    The only solid pair in the national squad are the much-maligned Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong combination as Kim Her has been experimenting with the other partnerships under his charge.
    His job was made even more difficult when several players – Teo Kok Siang, Chooi Kah Ming and Mak Hee Chun – suffered injuries last year, thus forcing him to reshuffle the doubles line-ups repeatedly.
    Now he has a full squad available at his disposal, following the successful returns of long-term knee injury victims Kok Siang and Kah Ming.
    After tinkering with the line-up the past few months, Kim Her has finally decided to build solid doubles partnerships for the long run.
    Goh V Shem and Lim Khim Wah, who have forged a strong combination and are currently ranked 29th in the world, will remain as a pair.
    The changes, however, will see Tan Wee Kiong (pic) teaming up with Hoon Thien How while 2008 world junior champions Hee Chun-Kok Siang will be reunited.
    The other pairs in the squad will be Mohd Lufti Zaim-Vountus Indra Mawan and the two world junior pairings of Nelson Heg-Teo Ee Yi and Kah Ming-Ow Yao Han.
    “This is to build the squad to focus on the future. There will be no more trials and experiments,” said Kim Her.
    “The Australian Open next week will be the last experimental tournament. After that, the players will have to stick to the combinations that we have decided.
    “Most importantly, however, is that they’re happy with their partners and comfortable playing with one another.
    “I’ve spoken to each player and they are happy with the arrangements.
    “For now, we have an important four-month period where everyone in the doubles squad will help Kien Keat-Boon Heong in their preparations for the Olympics as well as the Thomas Cup.”

    Kim Her also said that three pairs – Thien How-Wee Kiong, V Shem-Khim Wah and Lufti-Vountus – will be entered for the Asian Badminton Championships (ABC), which will be held in Qingdao, China, from April 17-22.
