They need to aim to beat other country's 2nd pairs like Bona/Ahsan, Ko/Yoo, Hong Wei/Shen Ye. LYD's new partnership will take time to build.

TKH dont seem to favour the seniors as they are not molded by him(including KKK/TBH), he likes the youngsters more. Ah How is still around as strategy for team events, Ah How and TBH's chemistry never fade after all these years.

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.
What help if they don't help themselves ? I remember during school days. (ONLY) Help those who help themselves.

Goh V (Wei) Shem/Lim Khim Wah has reached their first ever semi-finals of a Super Series event in the absence of the top pairs!
I hope that they can capitalize on their momentum and at least give KSH/YYS a run for their money. This is the result of their last meeting :

CHONG Wei Feng secured the Thomas Cup singles reserve slot ahead of Arif Latif while doubles player Tan Wee Kiong will also make his debut in the final rounds in Wuhan on May 20-27.
Arif's poor performance in the Thomas Cup qualifiers in Macau in February and in subsequent tournaments paved the way for Wei Feng to feature in his first Thomas Cup.
Wee Kiong, who was so dejected that he contemplated quitting the national team after being left out of the squad for the qualifiers, also received the trust of men's doubles chief coach Tan Kim Her due to his hardwork and positive attitude in tournaments and training over the last three months.
The BAM executive committee, chaired by president Datuk Seri Nadzmi Salleh, endorsed the Thomas Cup squad without much deliberation at Juara Stadium yesterday.
Lee Chong Wei, Liew Daren and Hafiz Hashim are the regular singles players while Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong and Goh V Shem-Lim Khim Wah will feature as the first choice pairs in Wuhan.
"This is our best squad at the moment and the players selected are based on their recent performance. The Thomas Cup is very important for us and we have targeted a semi-final spot based on the strength of our current squad," said Nadzmi.
"The players will be having centralised training in Kuala Lumpur and also a week in Dongguan, China and we are hopeful the players will achieve the target."
Kim Her said Wee Kiong had shown marked improvement and deserved a place in the squad although he and Thien How had only played in the Badminton Asia Championships in China as a pair last week.
"Wee Kiong took it hard after failing to make the squad for the qualifiers but he managed to overcome his disappointment and continued to work hard. I had told him he had the chance to make the final squad if he kept progressing and was disciplined in training and he has earned his place on merit,' said Kim Her.
"Thien How was already in as he is versatile. He and Wee Kiong are a good combination while Thien How can also forge a strong partnership with Boon Heong if needed."
Five coaches -- Rashid Sidek, Tey Seu Bock, Hendrawan, Kim Her and Pang Cheh Chang -- will accompany the Thomas Cup squad and BAM also approved for Misbun Ramdan Misbun, Chan Kwong Beng and Chooi Kah Ming-Ow Yao Han to join them as sparring partners.
THOMAS CUP SQUAD: Lee Chong Wei, Liew Daren, Hafiz Hashim, Chong Wei Feng, Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, Goh V Shem-Lim Khim Wah and Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong.
