The last final of the 2007 Wilson Badminton Swiss Open, fourth in the
SUper Series, was a clash between Jens Eriksen/Martin Lundgaard, DEN and
Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong, MAS. It was the second time in a week the
two sides met. Last was at the All England a week ago, with the
Malaysians winning on that occassion. The Danes were deternined to was
off that stain and played considerably better today, keeping the errors
to a minimum.
As always when Denmark and Malaysia meet,they play in a breathtaking
speed. The first game was won by Eriksen/Lundgaard 21-17.
The second game took a long time before any indication was made on who
might come out on top. But as Tan/Koo up'ed the speed a nudge that was
the factor giving them the second game 21-16.
The Malaysians also started best in the third game, keeping a constant
lead. The nearly flawless Danish play from the first game had
dissapeared, and combined with aggressively playing Malaysians, Tan/Koo
won for the second time in a week!
They took the decisive game 21-12!

Lets hope this Malaysia doubles can consistantly win a few more 4 star tounarments, unlike some previous fluke AE winners which go down hill after that. Especially TBH, he was a world junior doubles champ few years back and had since moved forward to be a senior player. Keep up the good work.

There is no Malaysian pairs that can match these guys standard. They should be in the top 10 after this win.

They almost gave me a heart attack last night !
KKK looked not up to mark during the semis and yesterday it was TBH's turn !
But I'm happy that despite all that they were able to pull through and won the title.
Kuddos to them. Hope they'll be able to keep up the good results...

The first game they look sluggish, some unforced errors and poor smash returns. TBH performs better during the 2nd set, with good return flicks and accurate placings.Thanks to KKK killer smash.
I can see them dominating this year tournaments.:-)

when will we know for sure the new ranking?

Who cares about their ranking? From their performance these past two weeks, KKK/TBH are the BEST in the world right now. Nobody could beat them even when they weren't playing well...
Unless they suddenly suffer a loss in form, put too much pressure on themselves or their opponents figure out a way to beat them, the M'sians loiok really solid for the world championships this year.

Well, although they have not met the Korean pair, it still seems apparant that they are dominating the Super Series right now and I guess from one's point of view, they are currently the best in the world.

if koren pairs is really good as u mentioned, y they lost in the quarter final????
what does it mean????
think about it.......
do u think malaysian pairs gone through to final in easy way?????from first round to final which pair did they beat??? pls think abt it...........

With the current form, it's quite fair to say that they are at the top. The other current top pairs surely can't wait to pay their revenge on them. Loosing more than one game in a row has a significant psycological impact. This is an advantage to the TBH/KKK which they can manipulate to maintain their upbeat in coming tournaments.
