WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS: Kien Keat-Boon Heong will see action in Guangzhou
KOO Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong can look forward to the World Championships in August as their form, even in its current pathetic state, is of no issue.
National doubles coach Tan Kim Her is sticking with them and the 2006 Asian Games gold medallists will be in Guangzhou, even if it will be just to make up the numbers.
Kim Her's argument was that BAM's executive committee (exco) made the decision but isn't he the coach and hasn't Boon Heong admitted that he has lost confidence?
This has prompted Kim Her to consider fielding either Tan Wee Kiong-Hoon Thien How or Goh V Shem-Lim Khim Wah for today's do-or-die Group C clash with Germany.
"Boon Heong has lost confidence and after the defeat to Taiwan (on Sunday), it will be hard for them. I have to choose between Thien How-Wee Kiong and V Shem-Khim Wah for the remaining ties," said Kim Her.
"I will not reveal who will be fielded but after having spoken to Kien Keat-Boon Heong after the Taiwan match, we have to look at other options.
"As for Kien Keat-Boon Heong, they will be together until the World Championships as it was a decision taken by the BAM exco and I don't want to dispute that.
"I am ready to accept whatever decision BAM makes after the World Championships and both players also appear ready for any eventuality."
It will be a decision that will be made after one year as there were calls that the pair be either split or dropped completely from the national squad after last year's London Olympics.
Instead, they were set the unrealistic target of making this year's World Championships final and blaming Kien Keat-Boon Heong alone for their woeful form is not fair.
BAM and Kim Her -- as the doubles chief coach -- are equally to blame for allowing the pair to drop as low as they have.

After MAS' loss to Germany, LCW said Sudirman Cup is always not regard as important nor of any concern by Malaysians, for Malaysians, only Thomas Cup is important.
LCW also said that SC is also not regarded as important nor of any concern by many countries now also....
(...... if so, why MAS host it this year??? And why MAS still lost to Germany who did not sent their no.1 MS and WS? I really smell the sour grapes...)
(forgive me if I didn't translate it good, anyone could correct me if anything wrong)

苏迪曼杯自5月19日在吉隆坡布特拉体育馆开赛至今，每天上座率略微有增加，但不会超过300人（排除工作 人员、媒体、参赛队伍外），令能够容纳1万余人的体育馆看起来空荡荡的，就连有主队比赛的时候人数也没有太 大的变化，更多观众在看完李宗伟之后就选择了退场。
“其实，我个人觉得苏杯很多国家都不是很重视了，这是我个人的感觉，譬如印度连赛娜都没来，听说受伤了，是 不是真的，我们不知道。你看，韩国这次好多人都没派来。德国男女单打都没有来主力，整个比赛都没有来，不知 道为什么。”

2) England didn't even bother coming, Thailand did the same in the past.
3) Why MAS host it? Definitely not because they think MAS got a good chance of winning. But the real reason you have ask who BWF invited to put the bid in.
4) Why MAS lost to Germany? Well it's pretty obvious that MAS ladies are not very strong. Have a look at the world rankings.
No big deal. I don't smell any sour grapes.

Anyway, gauged by team performance for Malaysia in the recent few years, the most important cup for them should be The Axiata Cup huh? Because that's the only cup they fought tooth and nail for, and finally able to win one.

3) From recent news, should be $$$$. BAM thought they can make money/profit. But, seems BWF will take 80% of the earnings, so Kenny Goh said next few years Msia will not bid for major tourneys anymore until the % change.
4) Germany- Msia WS, WD weaker. Banking on XD, MS, MD. XD crumbled, that's it

we (including MAS team and CW) always blame China not giving enough attention and attendance Superseries tournaments by telling down their importance as inferior to their selected top events (OG, WC, TC, UC and SC), yet seems these critics are also now joining the culprit to kill the sports, looks like just after their own failure to win.

When badminton could be like tennis, the fans not only attend the matches featuring their countryperson, but also good matches not featuring their countrypersons, particularly in a country claims to have a badminton-mania tradition...
The Hopman Cup 2013 in Perth, even Australia team could not enter final, the overall attendance is still good and break their previous record.

Actually he's telling the truth
