After watching her matches at the Axiata Cup and if she continues to improve, she will be the next no.1 WS for MAS.

I want the other girls to rise up as well, not just Sonia... Wong Tat Meng is on the right track here.

No doubt, Wong Tat Meng is a good coach. Saw how Sonia played in her few matches. Sonia has good potential compared with Lydia and Jing Yi. If Sonia can increase her physical strength, agility, consistentcy and thinking side of her game, she shall be one of the world top player.

If someone always persevere no matter the obstacle, he/she will succeed (this include being a successful badminton player). If one gets complacent or just couldn't be bothered anymore, he/she is bound to failure. It's the attitude that determines one's success in the long run, not anything else like talent or luck factor.
I know I am still not answering your question but a mere certificate can't tell you how good a person is. But her attitude and commitment level might tell you whether she will be good in the future.

I admit that my view point maybe biased as I have seen many top junior players(who incidentally are also intelligent students) who eventually got complacent and slacked in their training. This is because they know that is easier to make a living (at least in Malaysia) with a degree than with a sport career. And slowly they left the court even though they have the age advantage, the facility and everything they need to be a top badminton player. To me this is really a waste of investment (for the country and sport association) and if that particular someone is not interested enough to start with, why not give the other individuals who are willing to put in the hard work a chance? Even though they might still be the best at that time, but they won't be able to go far if they doesn't love/enjoy what they do. I will stress again that it is the attitude that will be the deciding factor for a badminton player's career.
P/S: If you asked my honest opinion, I don't think BAM needs another lawyer....Just look at BAM's administration members and you just might find one fellow(already a qualified lawyer) who is already sitting there managing the association.

Icleing - don't say it's lack of interest all the time. People drift into alternate careers all the time. Even investment bankers changing career in their mid 40's. Perhaps it's more constructive to look at any novel incentives that might keep people in the sport.

Top singles shuttler undergoes op and will be out for six months
By KNG ZHENG GUAN
A big stunner: Sonia Cheah will be out for at least six months due to a torn Achilles tendon.
PETALING JAYA: Top women’s singles shuttler Sonia Cheah has undergone surgery for a torn Achilles tendon and will be out for at least six months.
The 19-year-old, who suffered the injury during training on Tuesday, sought treatment at the National Sports Institute (NSI) on Tuesday night before undergoing surgery yesterday morning.
It’s a sad end to the world No. 35, who has put in some strong performances this year and was expected to lead the women’s singles charge in the World Championships in Guangzhou, China, from Aug 5-11.
National women’s singles coach Wong Tat Meng was stunned by the severity of Sonia’s injury.
“The NSI confirmed that she tore her Achilles tendon and decided that she needed an operation,” said Tat Meng.
“That’ll put her out for at least three months before she’ll be able to do light training. My best guess is that she’ll only make a proper comeback next January ... probably for the Malaysian Open.
“It’s really quite unfortunate because she has really upped her level in training these past few weeks. Since Juliane Schenk (German world No. 4) joined us as sparring partner, Sonia has also shown remarkable improvement and was ready for the world meet.
“But accidents like these happen ... there’s nothing we can do about it. It’s important that she remain mentally strong and stay focused on recovering.”

Very unfortunate. I hope she heals fully and comes back stronger in time...
