Media seems to favour the aunties over the younger pair in the race to the Olympics...

Eei Hui relishing new role
IT has taken Chin Eei Hui six Uber Cup campaigns to be made captain and she wants to lead Malaysia to the final rounds in Wuhan, China in May.
Coincidentally, it was Eei Hui's long time partner Wong Pei Tty who had captained the Uber Cup squad between 2006 and 2010 and the duo's performance in the qualifying rounds in Macau will determine Malaysia's fate.
Malaysia must beat India in Group A to secure a quarter-final berth as Eei Hui has conceded that China, the other team in their group, are in a different class.
Pei Tty-Eei Hui have beaten their rivals Jwala Gutta-Ashwini Ponnappa on all four previous meetings and another win in the first doubles should virtually seal Malaysia's victory and a place in the last eight.
"This is the first time I will captain the squad and this is also the last as I won't be playing until 2014.
"So, I want my role as captain to be a memorable one by winning a point with Pei Tty and help the team qualify," said Eei Hui.
"We are the two most experienced players in the squad so we must win all our matches if Malaysia are to qualify.
"China are in a class of their own, so we have to deliver against others.
"We have beaten Jwala-Ashwini in all our previous matches but they have been very close.
"It is going to be tough again but we want to win and give Malaysia the advantage."
Eei Hui added: "Our second pair will also be strong.
"It could be either Vivian Hoo-Woon Khe Wei or Goh Liu Ying-Lin Yin Loo but both can win a point and this will reduce the pressure on the singles.
"We hope for one point from either the second or third singles.
"The quarter-finals will be tough as we will be playing either Indonesia or Thailand but we have a chance to upset them.
"Indonesia are strong in their doubles while Thailand have three good singles.
"We don't want to end up in the play-off where we may have to meet stronger teams like Hong Kong or Taiwan, so our best hope is to clear the quarter-finals."
A good performance from Pei Tty-Eei Hui in Macau will also improve their World No 14 ranking and help boost their chances of qualifying for the London Olympics, which is another reason why the veteran pair are all fired up to do well in Macau.

Itís almost impossible for them to catch up. Even if they finish 1 round ahead of their team mates at the AE, BAC and India SS will still not be enough. Of course if they manage to win one of them that will be a different story.

WPT/CEH are currently WR#14, they are already up in top 16, they just need to maintain it. WKW/Vivian are WR#19, with WKW injured,harder to work their way up. The youngies are almost 4,000 pts behind the aunties. Plus other WD pairs like the India, German, Holland pairs also fighting hard to get one pair in top 16

My initial thought was that the Indians may be a little over confident because these pairs were off the charts lately. A lesson learnt.

Condolences to Chin Eei Hui and Family
Excerpt from The Star Online:
"It was a sad day for national doubles shuttler Chin Eei Hui when she lost her No. 1 fan Ė her loving father Ė yesterday.
The 30-year-old Eei Hui rushed home to Penang after learning that her goldsmith father Chin See Foon, or fondly known as Steven, collapsed and died while playing badminton. He was 64 years old.
Eei Hui, who was seen laughing and joking just hours before at the ongoing Selangor Open at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara, was totally distraught when she found out about her fatherís demise.
She and her partner Wong Pei Tty then conceded a walkover to Ng Sin Er-Shevon Lai Jemie in the quarter-finals of the womenís doubles event."
RIP Mr Chin See Foon.
Hope the family pulls through...

Now that Rexy's moving to the PHI, who's gonna take over WS department? Jeremy Gan? Maybe Pang? Im anxious to know, also wondering if any foreign coach willing to take over and deal with BAM's management monkeys...

TARGET: Pei Tty-Eei Hui eyeing third consecutive Olympics outing

WONG Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui aim to become Malaysia's first women's doubles to play in three consecutive Olympics. But to do that, to see action in London on July 27-Aug 12, they need to raise their performance in the Asia Championships in Qingdao, China next week and the India Open on April 24-29.
A redraw in the Asia Championships has made it difficult for Pei Tty-Eei Hui as they will be up against China's top seeds Tian Qing-Zhao Yunlei in the second round.
In the initial draw, they had an easier passage, where they had a fighting chance of reaching the semi-finals.
Pei Tty-Eei Hui, ranked World No 16, will play Russia's Nina Vislova-Valerie Sorokina in the India Open first round before an anticipated meeting with second seeds Mizuki Fujii-Reika Kakiiwa of Japan.
Pei Tty is optimistic of reaching at least the quarter-finals in India which should help them remain in the top 16 but said much will also depend on how well compatriots Vivian Hoo-Woon Khe Wei, ranked World No 19, fare in both tournaments.
"Only one pair in the top 16 can qualify for the Olympics and Vivian-Khe Wei also have a chance if they do well in the Asia Championships and India Open. Our target is to reach the quarter-finals and hopefully clinch the sole berth," said Pei Tty.
"Although we are ranked higher than Vivian-Khe Wei, we cannot take it for granted and we have to do better than them to seal our berth in the Olympics.
"The resignation of our coach Rexy Mainaky is not going to affect us at this stage as the onus is on us to grab the opportunity and qualify for the Olympics."
Pei Tty-Eei Hui reached the last eight of the India Open last year and it will be crucial to secure a similar result to avoid a drop in their world ranking and confirm their ticket to the Olympics.
Lee Chong Wei, men's doubles Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong and mixed doubles Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying are virtually assured of their places in the Olympics.
Tee Jing Yi's chances of qualifying for the women's singles are all but gone after a string of poor results saw her world ranking plunge over the last two weeks from No 49 to No 63.
