Malaysia in line for two titles
"The performance of Vivian-Khe Wei is really good as no one expected them to come this far and they have beaten some strong pairs to achieve this. We can safely say we have good back-up for Pei Tty-Eei Hui," said Rexy in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
"Liu Ying and Lim Yin Loo alos played well and almost beat Japan's Miyuki Maeda-Satoko Suetsuna and we also have Ng Hui Lin to consider for the reserve slot.
Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying will be hoping to win their first title since pairing together two years ago. "I need to get the report of the coaches on Hui Lin's fitness and if her condition is not up to the mark for the Uber Cup, then Liu Ying-Yin Loo will get in. But at the moment, all three are in the running.
"As for Peng Soon and Liu Ying, they now have the opportunity to win the title and if they can achieve that, they will be heading for the World Championships with confidence.
"Previously, Peng Soon and Liu Ying were struggling as they have been focusing more on trying to qualify for the Thomas and Uber Cup squads but I'm glad they have concentrated on doing well in the mixed doubles in New Delhi."
Khe Wei-Vivian prove Uber Cup credentials by reaching ABC final
“I just cannot express how I feel today. I was really exhausted after playing against the Indonesians yesterday (on Friday). My whole body was trembling during the opening game. I honestly thought that I could not recover,” said Khe Wei.
“But I kept telling myself not to give up. We encouraged each other and kept reminding ourselves that we could do it. Thankfully, we pulled it off.
“It feels great to enter our first final in an international tournament. This is my first year playing with Vivian and we are certainly hitting it off well.”
“Hopefully, I will be able to recover my form tomorrow (today). The odds may be against us but Vivian and I will be out to fight for every point,” said Khe Wei.
Peng Soon has been quite impressive in training lately and I am not surprised that he is in the final of the ABC meet. Hopefully, they can give their stronger opponents a good fight tomorrow (today),” said Rosman.

Khe Wei/Vivian Hoo will definitely lose today. Pan Pan/Tian Qing is too strong.
CPS/GLY has a better chance. but still they have played a lot of rubber.

THE ECLIPSE FOR MALAYSIAN SINGLE BADMINTON IS COMING
With no MS breaking through from the back up squad, Mas single players in the future would not be interesting, not when China's Chen Long and Wang look set to dominate in the years after LD and LCW retires or become too senior to sustained the punishing requirement of top flight badminton.
I just hope when LCW retires or take a back seat role after OG2012. Tan, Choo and Chong could turn themselves into Ong Ewe Hock or Yong Hock Kin who are competent enough at team level but mediocre at individual events. I dont see them becoming LCW or even Wong. But then again they werent top players when they were juniors either.
M'sia best hope could be Iskandar, and flamboyant Syawal or diffident Ramdan Misbun who may come to the fore post 2013 when they are 22 or 23 when they ought to make breakthrough at that age.
Zulfadli and Wei Sheng are for 2016.
BAM should send Iskandar, Syawal and Ramdan and those in their age group to International challenge tournament. They werent doing enough for Tan Chong and Choo.
Rashid may have been a good player but a a coach I doubt he can lift their game.

Young pair win Malaysia's first major mixed doubles title
By RAJES PAUL
PETALING JAYA: Youngsters Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying made Malaysian badminton history yesterday when they became the country’s first ever mixed doubles champions in a top–flight international tournament.
The duo clawed their way back from the brink of defeat to upset world No. 14 Yoo Yeon-seong-Kim Min-jung of South Korea 21-17, 20-22, 21-19 in a 66-minute rollercoaster final of the Asian Badminton Championships (ABC) in New Delhi.
Another back-up pair, Woon Khe Wei-Vivian Hoo, failed to make it a double joy when they went down 10-21, 6-21 to sixth seeds Pan Pan-Tian Qing of China in the women’s doubles final.
The mixed doubles has always been considered one of the weakest links for Malaysia in the past but Peng Soon-Liu Ying’s exploits may change all that.

Prior to their win, Malaysia had never achieved any outstanding results in the mixed doubles.
Among the notable previous achievements were Chew Choon Eng-Chor Hooi Yee’s gold medal victory at the 1999 Brunei SEA Games, Choon Eng-Chin Eei Hui’s silver medal effort at the 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games and Koo Kien Keat-Wong Pei Tty’s bronze medal feat at the 2006 World Championships in Madrid.
In fact, none have made it to the mixed doubles final in the home tournament – Malaysian Open – since the event was introduced in 1967.
Peng Soon-Liu Ying are now assured of tickets for their maiden World Championships in August and they are also set to break into the top 20 bracket in the world rankings for the first time.
Peng Soon, who will celebrate his 22nd birthday on April 29, was on cloud nine after the breakthrough performance in the regional tournament.
”This is the best ever surprise. I never thought we would be able to win here. We had lost to the Koreans in the same tournament at the quarter-finals last year but, this time, we had our revenge,” said Peng Soon in a telephone interview.
“It feels amazing to be the first Malaysian pair to win at the ABC and also the first to do so in a senior international tournament.
“The win did not come easy for us but we did not give up although the odds were stacked against us.”
After a hard-fought opening game win, the Malaysians looked good to wrap up the match after staging a great comeback from 14-18 to level at 20-20 in the second game.
But their eagerness to win saw the Koreans dragging them into the decider.
Things looked bleak for Malaysia when Liu Ying had to take a short break due to a knee pain while trailing 6-11 in the rubber game.
But she surprised everyone by hanging on and the Malaysians slowly but surely got back into the game to romp home for a 21-19 win.
It is the second title for Peng Soon after having won the men’s doubles with Lim Khim Wah at the Thailand Open last year.
The 20-year-old Liu Ying was on top of the world yesterday.
“Peng Soon and I had problems before this ABC meet. I was quite negative about the partnership and I lacked trust. But we mended our differences and today Peng Soon played really well,” said Liu Ying.
Huh? CPS 22??? 23 or 24 already

Rexy: Breakthrough triumph result of two years of hard work
PETALING JAYA: Patience is a virtue and yesterday it was proven true.
For all the hard work the coaches have put in to establish the mixed doubles department over the last two years was finally rewarded with Malaysia’s first significant title.
Youngsters Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying beat South Koreans Yoo Yeon-seong-Kim Min-jung 21-17, 20-22, 21-19 in 66 minutes to emerge as the mixed doubles champions in the Asian Badminton Championships (ABC) in New Delhi.
It was the country’s first mixed doubles title in a top flight tournament.
Malaysia only began focusing on strengthening the mixed doubles after the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
Doubles chief coach Rexy Mainaky selected a few potential youngsters and put them under coach Jeremy Gan with the aim of preparing them for the 2012 London Olympics.
Rexy, though happy with the pair’s breakthrough, hoped that the result would not be a flash in the pan.
“We knew it would take time to establish the mixed doubles department when we started to focus on it two years ago.
“Compared to other countries like China, South Korea, Denmark and Indonesia, we are infants as far as mixed doubles is concerned. There was no full-time and specialised training for mixed doubles players,” said Rexy.
“We changed that about two years ago and I am happy to see a breakthrough. Credit to Chan and Goh for their achievement and I must also thank Jeremy and the other coaches for their efforts.”
Jeremy was glad that Peng Soon-Liu Ying managed to end the long wait for a mixed doubles title in an international tournament.
“We had achieved results in the junior ranks, winning the Asian and World junior titles, but somehow we’ve always failed to get it right in the senior ranks until now,” said Jeremy.

Thien How vows to step out of Boon Heong’s shadow
“I won the most prized title in the junior ranks with Boon Heong six years ago. He was my first partner and I was very happy for him when he was doing well in the senior ranks. But I was feeling miserable because I had nothing much to show for when I joined the senior team,” he said.
Soon Hock is my sixth partner and, hopefully, with him, I will be able to enjoy the best years of my career,” said Thien How. “I joined the BAM Academy when I was in Form One.
“Finally, I will get to realise my dream to represent the country in the Thomas Cup Finals. It has been a long wait but it has been worth it.
“I was so happy when I was named as one of the team members.
“Currently, our status is that of a reserve pair. But we will be ready to prove ourselves if we are given a chance to play in any of the ties.”
of course i hope every pair can done well
we have the depth and strength
