MEN'S doubles Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong will not be penalised for their continuous slide as BA of Malaysia (BAM) president Tengku Mahaleel Tengku Ariff insisted their services are still needed in several main events next year.
Kien Keat-Boon Heong's poor form was exposed by Russians Vladimir Ivanov-Ivan Sozonov in the China Open on Thursday as they earned a straight-game victory.
Although Ivanov-Sozonov have become a quality pair, Kien Keat-Boon Heong's defeat was still hard to accept, and it was a first by a top Malaysian pair against a Russian combination.
The lack of depth among the back-up pairs is probably the reason for BAM still putting its hopes on Kien Keat-Boon Heong to provide some bite to Malaysia's challenge in several main events next year.
They are the Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Thomas Cup Finals in New Delhi and the World Championships in Copenhagen where Tengku Mahaleel said Kien Keat-Boon Heong are still capable of providing depth to Malaysia.
He acknowledged the marked improvement of Tan Wee Kiong-Hoon Thien How, saying they are also part of Malaysia's plans for next year.
"At the moment, they are committed and they are one of the best in Malaysia. Hoon (Thien How) and Tan (Wee Kiong) are also doing better, and we need both pairs for next year's events," said Tengku Mahaleel.
"The experimenting didn't show encouragement and the coaches recommended for the status quo to remain."
The other pairs also underwent a reshuffle, and the new combinations such as Goh V Shem-Teo Kok Siang, Lim Khim Wah-Ow Yao Han and Chooi Kah Ming-Teo Ee Yi are also expected to make some headway next year.
The men's doubles squad are currently being guided by Pang Cheh Chang, while Tan Kim Her, though redesignated as an assessor, has been asked to help the former following the departure of Indonesian Paulus Firman.

Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong can 'tabao'

Did anybody watch their first round loss to Chaibiao/HongWei in Malaysia Open 2014?
The Malaysian crowd was booing them loudly after almost every point. Does Malaysia hate them that much?
The booing starts in the 2nd game.

Me! i was there watching their style of 'kangkung' game. Slow movement, less idea, less communication .... after all, not only KKK's fault, i can simply summarized all 4 of them including TWK/HTH were rubbish. TWK/HTH lead England 20-17 before lost the game 20-22. Even the uncle sitting next to me was booing them that time. Ask both of them to go back and eat kangkung more. Hehehe

I'm an ex Malaysian.
Yet I don't understand one thing about Malaysian spectators. Why do they curse and boo their own country players when they're struggling and in need of encouragement? You don't see that happening with any other country, like Korea, Indonesia, Japan, Denmark, etc. And China especially will vigorously encourage by shouting loudly jiayou if their country has fallen behind.
Just a thought.

for almost 3 years we supporting them ... can you give me their best result? why the cursing and booing is not happen to Lee Chong Wei? even recently he lost to Cheng Long ..... From the video, are you expecting us to give a support to this kind of playing style? Support from the spectators couldn't be enough if the players themselves refuse to change their attitude

Simply because they do not have a right attitude... Too proud and not humble. I once fancied them, not anymore... Simply useless now

Well, after such dismal results in the past 12 months, they shouldn't be proud anymore are they? Imho they were proud maybe in 2008-2010 when they did well, but recent deterioration past 2 yrs is more of a reflection of stronger newer MD pairs coming out of KOR (Kim/Kim, Lee/Yoo), INA (Ahsan/Setiawan), CHN (Liu/Qiu), England (Adcock/Ellis), etc. It's just that Koo/Tan have remained stagnant and allowed others to overtake them.
01-15-2014, 09:52 PM #2459
Yep. A lot of good MD pair came out since 2010. Even fhf/cy also has already been split. Kido/setiawan did the same too.
