M'sian Koo Kien Keat can learn a few things from S.Korean Lee Yong-dae
MALAYSIA’S doubles specialist Koo Kien Keat can learn quite a few things from South Korean superstar Lee Yong-dae.
While Kien Keat froze when fielded with an inexperienced Goh V Shem in the Group C tie against Denmark on Tuesday, the gifted Yong-dae cleverly guided his debutant partner Kim Sa-rang to clinch the winning point en route to helping South Korea beat Denmark 3-1 in the Thomas Cup semi-finals at the Wuhan Sports Gymnasium Centre yesterday.
Yong-dae-Sa-rang staged a remarkable comeback from a severe beating in the opening game to defeat Denmark’s secret weapons – Jonas Rasmussen-Joachim Fischer Nielsen – 11-21, 21-19, 21-15 in a gruelling one hour and 13-minute match.
South Korea will be making only their second final appearance in the competition and will attempt to win their first Cup when they take on China today.
The scratch pair of Yong-dae-Sa-Rang took to the court after South Korea had won two points through their old guard Lee Hyun-il and rising star Shon Wan-ho, the India Open champion.
In a battle of veterans, Hyun-il showed his superiority at the net with deceptive shots to defeat Peter-Gade Christensen 17-21, 21-14, 21-10 while Wan-ho also oozed class en route to downing Jan O Jorgensen 21-13, 14-21, 21-16.

The Koreans dropped one point through Ko Sung-hyun-Yoo Yeon-seong, who suffered a 10-21, 12-21 hammering at the hands of world No. 3 Mathias Boe-Carsten Mogensen.
With his regular partner Jung Jae-sung back home nursing a back injury, Yong-dae was under tremendous pressure to deliver the goods with first-timer Sa-rang.
But there was no need to fret as Yong-dae did not disappoint.
Said the 22-year-old Sa-rang: “There was so much pressure on me and I was so nervous but Yong-dae kept encouraging me despite the demoralising defeat in the first game. I followed his lead and this was the key to our success.”
Said the 23-year-old Yong-dae: “We went in with South Korea leading 2-1 but we felt the pressure. It showed in our first game but we did not give up and we continued fighting, showing more fire and enthusiasm to take South Korea into the final.”
Rasmussen, the 2003 world champion, admitted that they let slip a golden chance to save the tie for Denmark.
“We knew that we were up against one of the best doubles player in Yong-dae, although he did not have his usual partner with him. We knew it would be close,” said Rasmussen.
“We came out firing in the opening game but the Koreans kept fighting and keep pushing us deeper into trouble. If they did not so stubbornly persevere, we would have seen our youngster Viktor (Axelsen) in action. We lost to a better pair and we congratulate them.”
On the match against China tomorrow, South Korea’s head coach Sung Han-kook said: “China are the favourites but it will be a good match.”
In the 2008 final, China ended South Korea’s hopes of winning their first Cup with a 3-0 victory in Jakarta.

Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong to undergo Mixed Doubles training
The article has given Pang Cheh Chang an idea.

LATEST GAMBLE: Mixed doubles training for Koo-Tan
Men's doubles coach Pang Cheh Chang has come up with another unusual method to turn around Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong's form by asking them to undergo mixed doubles training as part of their preparation for the London Olympics in July.
Cheh Chang's reason behind the questionable idea is to help Kien Keat and Boon Heong improve their court coverage and it has received the backing of the coaching and training committee chairman Ng Chin Chai.
National doubles chief coach Tan Kim Her said Cheh Chang, who has been in charge of the top duo since September, will continue with the revised programme until the Olympics.
"Cheh Chang wants to include mixed doubles training for Kien Keat and Boon Heong so that they can improve on their court coverage. Cheh Chang is in charge of Kien Keat-Boon Heong and he will be given all the support to try out any new ideas until the Olympics," said Kim Her.
"It would not be right for me to make any judgement on Chen Chang's efforts as he is fully responsible for the preparation and performance of Kien Keat-Boon Heong in the Olympics.
"Problems like lack of focus and low confidence are still troubling Kien Keat-Boon Heong and I leave it to Cheh Chang to come up with changes and ideas that can bear fruit in the Olympics.
"Kien Keat-Boon Heong also have one more tournament before the Olympics -- the Indonesia Open next month -- where their target of making the semi-final remains."
It remains to be seen how Kien Keat-Boon Heong can benefit from mixed doubles training as the event requires different skills and the intensity is very much lower compared to men's doubles.
The Indonesia Open on June 12-17 will provide an indication on how effective the new method is.
