‘Floater’ Eei Hui enjoying life with different partners
PETALING JAYA: Doubles specialist Chin Eei Hui is really looking forward to a reunion with her regular partner Wong Pei Tty.
But while waiting for that to happen, she is proving to be the most successful – and dangerous – floater in the national badminton team.
In the China Open yesterday, Eei Hui, who has been playing with different partners since Pei Tty underwent a knee surgery six months ago, cleared the first round hurdle in the women’s and mixed doubles events in contrasting fashions.
She reached the women’s doubles second round with Goh Liu Ying after China’s Wang Xiaoli-Yu Yang conceded a walkover while trailing 8-11 in the opening game.
In the mixed doubles, she combined with Koo Kien Keat to beat the formidable South Korean pair of Yoo Yeon-seong-Kim Min-jung 21-15, 21-15.
In October, the crafty shuttler bagged the mixed doubles gold with Kien Keat at the New Delhi Commonwealth Games. And last month, at the Malaysian Satellite in Sabah, she took the women’s crown with youngster Lai Pei Jing.
Eei Hui said that she was making the best of her stint as a “floater”.
“I give my best with whoever is paired with me. I just enjoy playing the game,” said Eei Hui in a telephone interview.
“Some of the youngsters still have a lot to learn. And usually I will teach them while playing with them. These partnerships are temporary and I am trying to make the best of it.”
Eei Hui is happy that Pei Tty is currently undergoing light training on court.
“I miss her. We have been together for almost eight years and it is not the same without her. I am glad that she is doing light skills on court,” said Eei Hui.
“Our world ranking has dropped and we need to improve on it if we are to qualify for the London Olympic Games. I am looking forward to that. But, for now, I hope to do well with the others.”
Eei Hui-Pei Tty, once ranked fourth in the world, have dropped to No. 18.
In the China Open in Shanghai today, Eei Hui-Liu Ying will take on top seeds Cheng Wen-hsing-Chin Yu-chin of Taiwan while in the mixed doubles, Eei Hui-Kien Keat will meet third seeds Sudket Prapakamol-T. Saralee of Thailand.

Eei Hui to reunite with Pei Tty after the Malaysia Open
KUALA LUMPUR: Doubles shuttler Chin Eei Hui’s (pic) days of partnering different young player are coming to an end.
And before resuming her partnership with Wong Pei Tty, she is determined to achieve her best results with Goh Liu Ying in the Malaysia Open.
Eei Hui-Liu Ying are unseeded and they will take on South Koreans Ha Jung-eun-Kim Min-jung in the first round on Wednesday.
“This will be my fourth and last outing with Liu Ying in an international tournament. Hopefully, we will be able to achieve a breakthrough,” said Eei Hui.
“But more than the results, I hope Liu Ying has learnt as much as possible by playing alongside me over the last few months. She has certainly improved.”
In the absence of Pei Tty, Eei Hui had also been teamed up with Lai Pei Jing and Woon Khe Wei.
After the Malaysia Open, Eei Hui will skip tournaments before she teams up with Pei Tty after a lapse of almost a year for the Australia Open in April.
Pei Tty, who was put out of action after undergoing a knee surgery, resumed training last month.
“Pei Tty has been progressing well in training. The Australia Open will be a good platform for us to touch base and test our combination,” said Eei Hui.
“I will not be competing in the South Korea Open (next week) and the All-England (in March) because I will be spending more time with Pei Tty in training.”
Due to the long absence of the pair from international tournaments, Eei Hui-Pei Tty, who were ranked at No. 5, have dropped to 30th in the world ranking list.
And they need to work their way back to get among the top 16 to ensure a ticket to the London Olympics next year.

Good luck to CEH/WPT. This might also be the reason why GLY has improved in XD.

Wong on top of the world after landing ticket to World Championships
Pei Tty returns from injury and books ticket to London
By RAJES PAUL
KUALA LUMPUR: Doubles shuttler Wong Pei Tty’s impressive comeback at the recent Australian Open has landed her a surprise ticket to the World Champion-ships.
Thanks to their second placing in the Grand Prix Gold event in Melbourne last week, Pei Tty and her partner Chin Eei Hui have moved up 26 rungs to the 48th spot in the latest world rankings released on Thursday.
A country has a better chance of having two pairs in the world meet if both are ranked within the top 64 bracket.
The other Malaysian pair ahead of Pei Tty-Eei Hui are the Ng sisters – Hui Lin-Hui Ern, who are in 38th spot.
On the mend: Wong Pei Tty (left) and Chin Eei Hui made it to the final of the Australian Open last week
Pei Tty can take pride in her achievement as the Australian Open was her first tournament in almost eight months after she took time off to recover from her knee injury.
Her last tournament prior to her enforced break was the Taiwan Open in May, when she conceded a walkover due to the injury.
When she began training last month, her main goal was to regain confidence and qualify for next year’s London Olympic Games.
The one-year qualifying period for the London Games begin in May.
But the 30-year-old has certainly outdone herself.
And she could not hide her excitement at having sealed a place for the world meet with Eei Hui just a week before the qualifying period ends.
The world meet will be held in London from Aug 3-8.
“I never expected this. I had given up hope of qualifying for the world meet as my goal was to build my partnership with Eei Hui from scratch for the London Games,” said Pei Tty.
“But our good results in the Australian Open have changed our fortunes. This will give us the confidence to make our way to the top again.”
Pei Tty said that she was not seeking immediate shot at stardom but looking for a gradual progress to get back into top form by end of June.
“My legs are still not as strong as I want them to be although we did well to reach the final in Australia. There is still a lot of work to be done,” she said.
“For now, what is more important is to get back the tournament feeling. The competition will get tougher and tougher from now on and I have to be ready.”
Pei Tty-Eei Hui’s next tournament is the India Open Super Series from April 26-May 1 in New Delhi.
“This is our first Super Series event of the year. It will be competitive and hopefully, Eei Hui and I will be able to perform well. We have not set any targets,” she added.
In the absence of top players from China, Pei Tty-Eei Hui’s challengers will be from Japan, Indonesia and South Korea.
The Malaysians are drawn in the top half with top seeds Miyuki Maeda-Satoko Suetsuna, sixth seeds Shizuka Matsuo-Mami Naito of Japan, fourth seeds Meiliana Jauhari-Greysia Polii of Indonesia and eighth seeds Jwala Gutta-Ashwini Ponnappa of India.
Meanwhile, the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM)’s secretary Ng Chin Chai was thrilled with Eei Hui-Pei Tty’s qualification for the world meet.
”We made the right move to send Eei Hui-Pei Tty to the Australian Open instead of the Kuala Lumpur Open last week. They have shown good progress and we hope that they will slowly move up the ranks again.”

They and Vivian/WKW have been in a race for the Olympic slot. They had the kinder draws as of these two back-to-back tournaments, and WKW is injured.
I say that they get the Olympic slot.

Eei Hui eyes strong finish at tailend of her career
By RAJES PAUL
KUALA LUMPUR: Veteran doubles shuttler Chin Eei Hui is hoping to accomplish two challenging missions as she enters the final stretch of her 10-year journey with the national team.
The 29-year-old is bent on seeing her partnership with best buddie Wong Pei Tty hit greater heights at the Uber Cup qualifying tournament in Macau (Feb 13-19) and the Olympic Games in London (July 27-Aug 12).
Eei Hui-Pei Tty are the top ranked pair in the Malaysian Uber Cup team.
Enduring pair: What a doubles journey it has been for Chin Eei Hui (right) and Wong Pei Tty.
The duo, who are currently ranked 14th, will have to remain in the top 16 in the next three months if they are to see action at the Olympic Games.
Eei Hui, who made her international debut with Pei Tty in 2002, knows that her career is at its tailend and she is praying for a strong finish.
“This is my 10th year with the national team. Pei Tty and I have come a long way ... and what a journey it has been. There have been ups and downs but I don’t think I can go on after the Olympics,” Eei Hui said after a training session at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara yesterday.
She was thankful, though, that she and Pei Tty had managed to overcome a long list of injuries.
“I have suffered every possible injury that you can think of all these years. Except for my right hand, I have had treatment for all other parts of my body. That is what badminton has done to me,” said the left-hander.
“I have withstood all the pain and I aim to persevere until the Olympics.
“Pei Tty too underwent knee surgery in 2010 and made a stunning comeback last year. She is pushing herself hard as well. It is unfortunate that we have had to face so many challenges in our last year as a pair but we keep on encouraging each other and this is what motivates us to hang in there until the Olympic Games.”
The duo have certainly done Malaysia proud in the last 10 years – especially in overcoming the much-vaunted Chinese and Korean pairs.
Eei Hui-Pei Tty also bagged the SEA Games gold medals in 2005 and 2009; won the 2008 Denmark Open and World Superseries Finals; and emerged champions at the 2009 Indonesia Open.
Eei Hui has also starred in the mixed doubles event, successfully combining with Koo Kien Keat to clinch the gold medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in India.
But there is one “nightmare” she can’t forget.
“I just cannot erase one painful memory from my mind ... the one where Pei Tty and I lost 0-15, 6-15 to Taiwan’s Cheng Wen-shing-Chien Yu-chin in the 2004 Korean Open.
“I still can’t believe we were handed a duck in the opening game,” said Eei Hui.
“We got a tongue-lashing from our coach Cheah Soon Kit then. He lectured us for almost an hour and then withdrew us from the Japan Open. We were kept at home. Then, when we were sent to the Asian Badminton Championships, we were filled with steely determination.
“We beat the same Taiwanese pair en route to a semi-final finish. From then on, we grew in strength and confidence. We will always be grateful to Soon Kit.”
On the team’s chances in the Uber Cup qualifiers, Eei Hui acknowledged that it would be difficult “as we are drawn in Group W with top seeds China and India”.
“China are in a different class all together but we have a 50-50 chance against India. Both our doubles pairs have to win at all costs if we are to have any chance of making the quarter-finals. We need to steal a point from the singles as well,” she said.
The other pairs in the Uber Cup team are Woon Khe Wei-Vivian Hoo and Lim Yin Loo-Goh Liu Ying. The singles players are Tee Jing Yi, Lydia Cheah, Sannatasah Saniru and Yang Li Lian.
A good showing at the Uber Cup and several other tournaments – German Open, All-England, Swiss Open, Australia Open, India Open and Asian Badminton Championships – would set Eei Hui-Pei Tty nicely up for a grand finale – at the London Olympics.
And that would be a fitting farewell indeed.
