    Joo-bong has the answer to Koo and Tan’s troubles



    SOUTH Korean doubles legend Park Joo-bong feels there is still hope for the troubled Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong combination.
    The Malaysian pair have been on a downward spiral in recent years and look like decidedly rank outsiders for a medal at the London Olympics in July.
    In the Malaysia Open, Kien Keat-Boon Heong, who have developed a phobia of sorts against Korean opponents, were beaten 21-16, 18-21, 21-16 by the No. 4 Korean pair of Kim Ki-jung-Kim Sa-rang.
    They have also fared poorly against Lee Yong-dae-Jung Jae-sung, Ko Sung-hyun-Yoo Yeon-seong and Shin Baek-cheol-Cho Gun-woo over the past year.
    According to the 47-year-old Joo-bong, who formed a formidable partnership with Kim Moon-soo, Kien Keat-Boon Heong are physically not up to the challenge.
    Solid display: South Korea’s Cho Gun-woo (front) and Shin Baek-cheol in action during their men’s doubles semi-final against China’s Chai Biao-Guo Zhendong Saturday. The Koreans won 26-24, 23-21.
    “Their game has deteriorated because they are not physically as strong as the Koreans and Chinese. They also lack speed.
    “The only way is to push harder in training to get those aspects of their game back,” said Joo-bong, who is now the Japan national coach.
    “I see some changes now. They are attacking more but the Koreans have a solid defence so the Malaysian pair can’t kill the shuttle. Their good attacking play must be supported by superior physical condition and concentration,” said Joo-bong, who coached in Malaysia for five years. He said Kien Keat-Boon Heong had been on par with world champions Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng of China, Lee Yong-dae-Jung Jae-sung and Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan but the Malaysians and Indonesians have fallen behind.
    “Cai Yun-Haifeng and Yong-dae-Jae-sung are now the favourites for the Olympic gold medal,” he said.
    “The only way for Kien Keat-Boon Heong to stage a comeback is to make some serious changes to their training methods.”

    Doubles pair focus on service and service return ahead of Olympics

    KUALA LUMPUR: National men’s doubles duo Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong are focusing on their service and service returns to kick-start their stalling hopes ahead of the London Olympics badminton tournament from July 27-Aug 5.

    Yesterday, national coach Pang Cheh Chang said that their poor grip in this area had resulted in Kien Keat-Boon Heong being easy targets for their higher ranked opponents in recent tournaments.

    In the Indonesia Open, the duo were sent packing 15-21, 11-21 by the towering Mathias Boe-Carsten Mogensen of Denmark in the semi-finals and their lack of sting – especially at the front court – was evident.

    Cheh Chang gave a positive review of Kien Keat-Boon Heong’s preparations, expressing confidence in their medal prospects in London.

    “We can’t rule them out. They did play badly at one point but are making a comeback now. They still have a chance and we are looking at ways to strengthen their game,” said Cheh Chang.

    “The quality of their service and service returns had dropped and we are working on beefing up these aspects of their game.

    “If they improve in this area, they will be on par with the top pairs.”

    Cheh Chang said both his players were physically in better condition.

    “Their attack is much sharper and they don’t go too deep into defence as in past. There are positive changes in their game.”

    Kien Keat-Boon Heong, currently ranked eighth in the world, have not won a tournament for some time. There will have to be a drastic transformation if they are to make an impact in London.

    Besides Kien Keat-Boon Heong, 15 other pairs have qualified for the Olympic men’s doubles event. They will be divided into four groups with the top two proceeding to the knockout stage.

    So is he implying Koo Kien Keat's smash is a lot more powerful now ? To me, he still smashes like a girl.

    Boon Heong out to make amends for Beijing disappointment

    KUALA LUMPUR: The first cut is the deepest and for national doubles shuttler Tan Boon Heong, his Olympic debut in Beijing four years ago still brings painful memories.

    Then, Boon Heong and his partner Koo Kien Keat were considered as one of the favourites but they lost to Indonesia’s Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan for the first time in seven meetings in the quarter-finals. Markis-Hendra went on to win the gold but have failed to qualify for London.

    “We had won all our previous six outings against them, including at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha. But they blew us away in Beijing. It was our first Olympics and we were nervous,” recalled Boon Heong.

    “The defeat affected us in a big way and we struggled for a while before we regained our confidence.”

    Four years after the Beijing disappointment, Boon Heong is looking at his second Olympic outing with renewed hope. Although the build-up towards the London Games has not been smooth sailing, Boon Heong says he has not lost heart.

    “For some, it’s difficult to even qualify for the Olympics. I have a second chance and don’t want it to be a bad memory as well. Who knows where I will be four years down the road,” he said.

    “Kien Keat and I have decided not to dwell on our mediocre form in recent tournaments. For now, all our focus is on London.”

    The duo, currently ranked eighth in the world, have not won any major title since capturing the 2010 Malaysian Open Super Series. In the recent Super Series in Indonesia, the duo were beaten by Denmark veterans Mathias Boe-Carsten Mogensen in the semi-finals.

    Boon Heong-Kien Keat had come agonisingly close to ending their miserable run at the 2010 World Championships, 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou and the 2011 All-England but ran out of steam in the final on all three occasions.

    Boon Heong said the only thing they were lagging in now was confidence.

    “Unlike us, some of the other contenders have had a good season. They have won tournaments and appear to have the edge. We are trying to psyche ourselves up. We are not thinking of winning titles right now, just getting our game going again,” added Boon Heong after a training session at Stadium Juara yesterday.

    A total of 16 pairs have qualified for the Olympics doubles competition but no one is a clear favourite.

    The main contenders are defending champions and four-time world champions Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng, Guo Zhengdong-Chai Biao of China; South Korea’s Lee Yong-dae-Jung Jae-sung, Ko Sung-hyun-Yoo Yeon-seong; Indonesia’s Mohd Ahsan-Bona Septano; Boe-Mogensen; Fang Chieh-min-Lee Sheng-mu of Taiwan; Japan’s Naoki Kawame-Shoji Sato and Howard Bach-Tony Gunawan of United States. Even Thailand’s Bodin Isara-Jongjit Maneepong have an outside chance.

    With the restricted number of qualifiers, even the group matches may go down the wire. The 16 pairs will be divided into four groups with the top two proceeding to the elimination round.
