Coach: Chinese Doubles Need Learn How to Control Game
Xinhuanet 2002-05-17 23:09:30
GUANGZHOU, South China, May 17 (Xinhuanet) -- After China were
sunk by Malaysia 3-1 in a four-hour semi-final tie at the Thomas
Cup, an expert said here on Friday that the Chinese men's doubles
players need to learn how to control their games.
The Chinese doubles boast speed, power and fighting spirit. The
only thing they need is the knack of how to control the pace of
the game," said Malaysia doubles head coach Park Joo Bong.
His remarks came when throughout all the four matches China
played at the Thomas Cup World Team Badminton Championships,
Chinese doubles claimed only one big victory in the battle against
South Korea in their group competition.
China restructured their doubles line-ups just before the tie
against South Korea, a change which brought them to a crucial
victory 4-1 and moved into the semi-finals.
In the group tie against Denmark, China lost both doubles to
the Danes. The only complete doubles triumph China achieved were
in their first group match against Sweden who placed bottom in
"It seems that sometimes they don't have any strategy in mind
even when they are taking the lead," Park said.
Park, who is the coach of current world number one doubles Chan
Choog Ming/Chew Choon Eng, was originally South Korea's former
world champion in doubles.
He had a glorious career with five mixed doubles and doubles
titles at the world championships and a coveted doubles gold medal
at the Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992.

Razif Sidek, the amiable half of the doubles pair
recently commented that China doubles tend to play a very
simple and uncomplicated game based on speed and power
with very little variety in the form of strokes or tactics.Maybe it is
because of 7 points system.
