    There are many pro players that played entire career in BAM without winning anything, LKW/GVS could have been one of them and for them to win MO SS, at least there is 1 trophy to show for, I am glad for them. They are the underdogs in BAM, IMO the players we should support.
    They are young and with fans, media and their coach heaping praises onto them it could go to their head. Please be kind with words...it is not that they have won 50+ SS like the Sultan of SS hogging all the overseas playing opportunities. They do not have the priviledge like KKK/TBH who were pampered with so many playing opportunities, year after year, and even when KKK/TBH kept failing, they got another and another and another chances.

    Sole survivors Goh-Lim out to defend title

    BY RAJES PAUL

    Goh V Shem (right) and Lim Khim Wah earned a hard fought win over Indonesia's Gideon Markus Fernaldi-Markis Kido in the semi-finals. - ABDUL RAHMAN EMBONG / The Star




    PASIR GUDANG: Shuttlers Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem will seek to maintain their one-year domination at home by defending the men’s doubles title in the Malaysian Open Grand Prix Gold tournament at the Pasir Gudang Municipal Stadium on Sunday.

    Their opponents in the final will be high-riding Singaporeans Danny Bawa Chrisnanta-Chayut Triyachart.

    In order to pull off the feat, the Malaysians will have to play far better than what they dished out in a lethargic semi-final victory against third seeds Gideon Markus Fernaldi-Markis Kido on Saturday.

    Khim Wah-V Shem flirted with danger before sealing an 18-21, 21-18, 21-17 win in a drab 57-minute match that could have gone either way. The Malaysians should have nicked the opening game after confidently marching into a 13-8 lead. Instead, they got sluggish and the Indonesians seized the opportunity to steal the opener.

    Nothing much changed in the second and rubber games as both pairs continued to pull off brilliant shots, and then giving away easy points.

    Fortunately, Markis was the most inconsistent of the lot – and Khim Wah-V Shem did just enough to win a ticket to the final.

    Khim Wah admitted that it was a weak performance.

    “We got off well but made mistakes towards the tail-end of the first game. We got slightly distracted after that,” said Khim Wah.

    “We tried to clear our mind and regain our focus ... fortunately, we did enough to win it.”

    V Shem admitted that they will have to be consistent in the final today to stand a chance of winning.

    “We are the only Malaysians left in the tournament and we know what the fans want ... we do not want to disappoint them. We want to continue doing well on Malaysian soil by winning our third Open title at home,” said V Shem.

    Last year, the duo won the Malaysian Open GP Gold at Juara Stadium. In January, they delighted the fans by winning the Malaysian Open Superseries Premier at the same venue.

    Meanwhile, there was no joy for Malaysia’s women’s doubles when Lim Yin Loo-Lee Meng Yean lost 17-21, 17-21 to China’s juniors Ou Dongni-Xiong Mengjing in the semi-finals.

    From what i see, professional players must do their best, if want to maintain their ranking in the top 10 position.

    I agree with OTB. They don't deserve the harsh criticism that some Malaysians are dishing out and obviously, they are easy targets being public figures.

    It brings to mind one former player who is/was a forum member. That player commented that Malaysians are generally not appreciative of the players that represent the country.

    this is not our social game, when u just play 2-3 times a week and week in week out expect to beat the same guys over and over gain.

    people then to forget these are all professional players, they work very hard to overcome their weaknesses,

    these Singaporean pair obviously has improve tremendously by reaching the final & then winning it.

    the gap between professional players are very slim... on a good day, Hoon Ji Hong can beat lin dan

    Not sure whose idea is that to play Goh/Lim in All England 2014. Like I said earlier, they are not ready for Super Series or other big tournaments yet. If they don't progress, play them in lower league tournaments.

    V Shem-Khim Wah lose to lowly Singaporeans in final (updated)

    BY RAJES PAUL

    Goh V Shem-Lim Khim Wah were far from their best against Danny Bawa Chrisnanta-Chayut Triyachart of Singapore. - ABDUL RAHMAN EMBONG / The Star

    PASIR GUDANG: Three months ago, shuttlers Goh V Shem-Lim Khim Wah jumped with joy after winning the Malaysian Open Superseries men’s doubles badminton title.

    But there was no such celebration in the Malaysian Open Grand Prix Gold at the Pasir Gudang Municipal Stadium on Saturday.

    The second seeds and heavy favourites gave a toothless display to go down 17-21, 20-22 to qualifiers Danny Bawa Chrisnanta-Chayut Triyachart of Singapore in the men’s doubles final.

    It was Danny-Triyachart’s first career title.

    It wasn’t as if Malaysia were not aware of the Singaporeans’ threat. Danny-Triyachart had already served an early warning when they sent top seeds and Malaysian No. 1 Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong packing on the opening day.

    This is Malaysia’s worst ever showing on homeground after failing to win a single title.

    But a disappointed Khim Wah took the defeat in his stride.

    “It was just not our game. We came to a point where we were not even brave enough to go for attacking shots. We must credit the Singaporeans for their good tactical game,” said Khim Wah.

    Khim Wah-V Shem just couldn’t get it right from the start – with both hardly showing any urgency in their game.

    Their movements were stiff and they often made poor returns that were easily slammed down by the Singaporeans.

    V Shem too put up a brave front, saying they will make a quick rebound in the back-to-back Indian Open and Singapore Open Superseries.

    “We wanted so badly to win the title at home again but it did not go according to plan. We will be more prepared for the next two tournaments,” said V Shem.

    China were the big winners yesterday, taking home three titles – thanks to their women power.

    Lanky Yao Xue nailed her maiden women’s singles title while Huang Yaqiong delivered two – women’s doubles with Yu Xiaohan and mixed doubles with Lu Kai.

    Seasoned campaigner Simon Santoso showed that he has not lost his touch by bagging his first title of the year after beating India’s Sourabh Varma 15-21, 21-16, 21-19 in a thrilling men’s singles final.

    The word "lowly" should not have been applied to the SIN pair as it could mean something undesirable.

    MAS MD Goh and Lim must have taken note of the defeat of their higher ranked #1 seed compatriots, Hoon and Tan, in R1 by the same SIN pair who had to play two extra matches to advance to the main draw.

    Yet the SIN pair persevered after playing two earlier three-gamers against strong opponents from Taipeh and Japan before beating INA Andrei and Hendra, also qualifiers, in the SF.

    I think it is through sheer grit and determination that Danny and Chayut finally came through and deserved to win the MD title.

    Mind you the two MAS pairs are no chicken feed and they have generally acquitted themselves well so far at the world stage. Any team would love to have them as team mates.

    But not the SIN pair until now. I hope they will play better from here onwards and win more accolades for Singapore.

    I hope Chayut will dispel further doubts about his ability and concentrate as a professional badminton player and shoot for the Rio Olympics.

    i agree with you, Rajes Paul should not use the words lowly... I belib he do read BC

    I watched the replay last night, it was not goh&lim play bad, it was SIN-pair playing very well and putting the right strategy.

    Chayut won many battles at the net, knowing exactly where to expect the return.

    Chayut was on fire and was very sharp at the net. The Singapore strategy was simple and effective. No fancy big smash or wild rally. In fact, there was not much of opportunity to rally and play to their strength. Malaysia lose to the better players and strategy this time. LKW/GWS need to improve their serve and serve return. Hopefully they will learn from this defeat and come back stronger. I think this young pair still has potential, losing a GPG final is not the end of the world. Forgive, forget, focus. Win SS consistently and prove the critics wrong.
