today straits time paper said that our junior must not be satisfied with 2nd place. they are right.
They also mentioned that Zulfadli should joined BAM to improve as he will have access to complete training facilities.
They also said that depths of girls single is still lacking and they dont think that Sonia Cheah is likely to win the worldchampion title

BAM should treat success with caution
By K.M. Boopathyboopathy@nst.com.my
MALAYSIA have made it a habit of winning the World Junior Championships boys' doubles and it was good to see Chooi Kah Ming-Ow Yao Han coming back from the dead to keep the tradition going in Alor Star on Sunday.
Kah Ming-Yao Han were rank outsiders, which has always been the case for Malaysians in the World Juniors, as Indonesia's Rendy Yohanes Sugiarto-Angga Pratama and Lu Kai-Liu Peixuan of China were the standouts but the local pair rose to the occasion.
The regular success of local pairs -- this was the fifth time Malaysia have won the boys' doubles in 11 editions -- is a remarkable effort which, unfortunately, has not translated into success at the senior level.
What is even more worrying is the fact that most of those who won the World Juniors boys' doubles crown faded away once on the senior circuit.
Except for Chan Chong Ming -- a triple world junior champion -- and Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, the rest didn't fulfil their potential.
Even then, Kien Keat was only a semi-finalist in 2002 but had the potential to become world class while Boon Heong, champion in 2004 with Hoon Thien How, is probably the only player who has thrived on the senior stage.
This is not the case for players from Indonesia, who have surprisingly only won the boys' doubles once -- in 1992, but their players have made the transition to world class players in quick succession.
Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan are the best example as they only had a bronze to show in 2002 but are the current senior world and Olympic champions.
Lee Yong Dae of South Korea has proved to be a phenomenon as after winning the world junior title in 2007, he captured the Olympic mixed doubles gold (with Lee Hyo Jung) in Beijing last year and has been twice runners-up with Jung Jae Sung in the World Championships.
A bronze medal is the best Kien Keat-Boon Heong, seen as Malaysia's brightest prospects in decades, have managed in the World Championships and they were only quarter-finalists in the 2008 Olympics.
The BA of Malaysia and the national coaches deserve praise for delivering in Alor Star when indications were otherwise but they cannot rest on their laurels based on the track record.
Players must be geared to quickly become world class rather than wasting their good years honing skills and physical condition.
The basics have to be mastered at the junior level but the process is not being done well enough and Kah Ming is a perfect example.
The frail-looking Kah Ming, 18, was not in a condition to play in two events and had to concede the mixed doubles with Ng Hui Ern.
Kah Ming-Hui Ern lost to eventual champions Jongjit Maneepong-Rodjana Chutabunditkul of Thailand in the third round and had the Malaysians won, they could well have taken the title.
Kah Ming's poor physical condition has already prompted a warning from Yap Kim Hock that the shuttler will struggle to establish himself when he joins the back-up squad next year.
But that is not only Kah Ming's responsibility for BAM and the coaches also share the burden.
Mindsets must change, especially when it comes to deciding when a player is ready for challenges on the senior circuit.
Boon Heong is a perfect example as he was Asian Games champion in 2006 -- just two years after winning the World Juniors and BAM and the coaches must decide based on the quality of players rather than theories.
The good news for BAM from Alor Star is that there are still quality players coming through the ranks but the challenge now is to ensure that they realise their potential.
KM Boothy also read BC, me thinks, all that been discussed + more.

Bolehians, lets not get intoxicated
Yes, yes we won the boys doubles event.
Yes, yes we have the world's best boys doubles pair nicely tucked in our stable.
Yes, yes our Iskandar made it to the final in the boys singles event.
... but hold the toddy and samsu, we are not home and dry yet. Why so? A quick check with previous winners, we will find a majority of them just fade away. Playing in the little boys and little girls league is one thing. Playing with the big boys and girls in the senior circuit is another. Not many will make the grade. And from our current batch, I dont see any exemptional talent/s.
For our girls shuttlers, I dont think any of them will make the grade in the senior circuit. Yes, they will play in the senior tournaments but they wont make any headlines or win any SS titles. In short, they will just make up the numbers or will be cannon fodders. Majority of them will fade away.
As for our boys, I be honest in our singles department, I dont see any potential at all. Iskandar, Shawal ... are just ok ok shuttlers. Yes, they are good in Malaysia but put them on the international circuit, they wont make the cut. I will say they wont even win a single SS title outside of Malaysia. Misbun's son? No way la. If daddy's not Misbun, the lad is at most a state player. As for our doubles, Ow/Chooi are just an average pair. They dont really have much technical skills and I rate their chances of making the senior cut at no more than 30%. As for the rest, they will end up as coaches/trainers/racquet stringers etc.

ok... i dont want to jump the gun to disagree and agree. whatever it is our nation have to keep looking for potential players.
Does Thailand knows that they have a WJC in Ratchanok? if they dont take chances they would never know.
before even Sonia or Li Lian tries, they have even been written off.
Same as iskandar, Misbun or Shawal- sad is it not
Our WJC only given 30% success.
Maybe its time for BAM to starts revamping and look into the problems we have.
Yes. we have good graduate from BJSS but after that....

Btw, next year, is Yew over age already? Yew didnt feature in BD this WJC, Goh/Pang played as 2nd BD and Ow partner Lai Pei Jing in XD, not Hui Ern.
I thought Hui Ern is best gal player among junior XD.
Next yr, it's Zulfaldi, Sonia, Yang Li Lian, Tan Wee Tat, Lai Pei Jing, Shevon & gang's turn to rise up.
