    A speedy Arif makes short work of Soon Huat to reach semis

    “Coach Hendrawan sort of breathe a new life into me and I feel that I’m training with more purpose now. I used to skip training or took it lightly before, but I’m serious about badminton now,” said Arif.

    Back-up shuttler stuns Chun Seang to enter final

    KUALA TERENGGANU: Back-up singles player Mohd Arif Abdul Latif stunned second seed Tan Chun Seang in the semi-finals of the National Circuit Grand Prix Finals at Stadium Negeri here yesterday.

    Arif snatched a 18-21, 21-15, 21-9 victory with a do-or-die attitude yesterday to set up his first ever appearance in the final of a GP Finals, where he will face world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei today.

    Yesterday, Arif took a fairly relaxed approach in the first game and it led to him making many unforced errors to allow Chun Seang to win 21-18.

    However, Arif bounced back in the second game by mixing his game and towards the tailend of the game, Chun Seang conceded three points in a row to lose at 15-21.

    It was touch and go in the rubber game until Chun Seang disputed a call by the line judge with Arif leading at 13-8.

    The game was stopped for almost a minute and when it resumed Chun Seang was unable to gather himself and he gave away many easy points to Arif who won 21-9 to reach the final.

    “My initial target was to qualify for the semi-finals. I never thought about reaching the final,” said Arif.

    His appearance in today’s final will surely impress the Badminton Association of Malaysia’s (BAM) coaching and training committee who are looking for a player to fill the void left by former All-England singles champion Mohd Hafiz Hashim.

    Arif, however, was quick to say that he still has a long way to go before he can fill anyone’s shoes in the elite set-up.

    “I think I have improved a lot since these two years training under coach Hendrawan. But it doesn’t mean that my standard is already at par with the elite players.

    “I’m fitter and quicker now after working with Hendrawan but I can’t say that I’m the most qualified player to be promoted to the senior team.”

    Chong Wei sweats it out against steely Wei Feng

    KUALA TERENGGANU: The semi-final match between world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei and Chong Wei Feng in the National Circuit Grand Prix Finals was destined to be a lopsided affair but Wei Feng still put up a steely display to win the hearts of fans at Stadium Negeri here yesterday.

    Chong Wei was forced to slog for 46 minutes before prevailing 21-16, 21-19 to set up a meeting with Mohd Arif Abdul Latif in today’s final.

    A slow start from Chong Wei gave the chance for Wei Feng to battle gamely in both games but the former packed too much experience even though he was trailing several times during the match.

    “My game plan tonight was to go and play my heart out against Chong Wei even though I know my chances are slim,” said Wei Feng.

    Wei Feng, who joined the elite ranks just five months ago, said he had improved tremendously since training with Chong Wei and the rest of the elite shuttlers.

    “This has been a good experience for me because it is not easy to play Chong Wei competitively. We often spar with him but playing against him in a competition is different,” said Wei Feng.

    Meanwhile, Chong Wei said he will do what is needed when he faces Arif today.

    Chong Wei last met Arif in the semi-finals of the Perak Open (second leg of the circuit) where he won 21-16, 21-8.

    “I think the juniors are catching up with the elites now as I can see their improvement in this tournament. If you compare them with me, obviously it will be a huge difference but they have improved nonetheless,” said Chong Wei.

    Maybe he already learnt everything from RS and it was so boring. Luckily Hendrawan came along.

    Ariff is quite impressive, playing like a "mini" Hendrawan and outplaying LCW with his deceptive strokes at times which is quite

    difficult for anyone to do.He appears to need to develop physically and play more opponents.

    Sonya Cheah also really impressive like a mini Wang Shi Xian, also need to develop physical aspects. Tee also a very promising player.

    A lot of talent but probably more development and exposure in competitive play.

    World No. 1 takes it easy against Arif in final

    KUALA TERENGGANU: Lee Chong Wei was magnanimous in his win over Mohd Arif Abdul Latif in the men’s singles final of the National Circuit Grand Prix Finals yesterday.

    The world number one held back his game before stamping his mark to win 21-15, 21-16 in 35 minutes.

    The win yesterday marked the ninth national title for Chong Wei, who will quickly shift his focus on defending his All-England title which starts on March 3-8 in Birmingham.

    Arif, who has shown tremendous improvement since training under coach Hendrawan, tried to take the fight to the world number one.

    But it was apparent that Chong Wei allowed the youngster to be in the game as he did play his usual blistering pace.

    “I gave him some chance in the game just to keep his desire to play alive. It should be a good learning experience for him and I can see that he has vastly improved,” said Chong Wei.

    Chong Wei last met Arif in the Perak Open semi-finals, where Chong Wei won 21-16, 21-8 in 23 minutes.

    “I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to play Chong Wei today and I learned a lot from him,” said Arif.

    “I know that I still lack the speed and strength and I will work on my weaknesses after this. I’m also more confident in my game as I’m regularly beating elite players now.”

    Badminton: Easy No 9 for Chong Wei

    IT seems to be getting easier for Lee Chong Wei who wrapped up his ninth consecutive title in the National Grand Prix Finals in Kuala Terengganu yesterday.

    Chong Wei was so dominant that he even chose to entertain the crowd with fancy shots to beat first time finalist Arif Latif 21-15, 21-16 in 35 minutes.

    He was also in a generous mood and played at half pace to spare Arif an embarrassing defeat and that allowed the latter to escape with a respectable scoreline.

    Arif was so comfortable that he even retrieved Chong Wei's smash between his legs but the latter matched it in the same rally to the delight of the crowd.

    The gulf between their standards was so great that Chong Wei still walked away with a comfortable win and has already set his target on recording a perfect 10 when the tournament is held on Dec 28-31.

    "I have been competing in this event without fail since 2003 and have done my part to attract the crowd. I will stop competing after winning my 10th title at the end of the year," said Chong Wei.

    "The juniors must use this tournament to make their breakthrough. I have seen some progress among them but they must keep working hard to go to the next level.

    "I didn't play to the maximum to give Arif the chance to compete but I kept the rallies in control.

    "Arif is a good player but the onus is on him to keep improving and he must also have the desire to achieve better results."

    Chong Wei will most likely play in the Kuala Lumpur Open on April 4-7 in order to qualify for the GP Finals.

    Arif said the final was a good learning experience and he wants to put up a better performance if he plays Chong Wei again.

    "I have started beating elite shuttlers and have also learnt a lot from the final. I must keep the momentum going," said Arif.

    "I still lack speed and power and I wasn't able to give a stronger resistance to Chong Wei. I have a lot to improve and my aim is to play much better if I meet him again."

    Badminton: Chong Wei, top pair to skip Sea Games

    K.M. Boopathy
    boopathy@nst.com.my
    2011/02/24

    LEE Chong Wei and men's doubles Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong will not be competing in December's Sea Games in Indonesia as the BA of Malaysia (BAM) wants them to focus on preparing for the 2012 London Olympics.

    This means Chong Wei, 29, will miss the opportunity of adding a possible Sea Games gold to his collection as he is likely to retire at the end of 2012.

    BAM coaching and training committee chairman Ng Chin Chai said the other players under the Road to London programme -- Wong Mew Choo, women's doubles Wong Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui and mixed doubles Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying -- will be playing in the Sea Games.

    "It was decided recently that top athletes from various sports under the programme be exempted from the Sea Games so Chong Wei and Kien Keat-Boon Heong will give it a miss," said Chin Chai.

    "This is to allow them to focus on their preparations for the London Olympics. It is also midway through the qualifying period.

    "As for Pei Tty-Eei Hui, the priority is qualifying for the Olympics and if they are not in good position, they may have to forego and focus on the qualifiers. Otherwise, they will be playing in the Sea Games."

    The coaching and training committee (CTC), which met yesterday, also decided that there is no need to promote any of the back-up players to the elite squad to fill the vacancy left by Hafiz Hashim as the new structure allows the coaches a longer period to see results.

    Arif Latif and Goh Soon Huat were in the running to claim the spot after high performance director Datuk James Selvaraj had proposed the matter but the CTC felt the changes are a little too early.

    CTC also approved Gan Teik Chai-Tan Bin Shen to spar with the national doubles squad but will be limited to two days a week, while the women's squad get Razif Latif and Chau Pak Chuu for sparring.

    The committee also agreed to a one-year probation for new players Tan Aik Quan and Tan Yip Jun.

    Aik Quan will be joining the mixed doubles squad while Yip Jun replaces Goh Sze Onn, who rejected an offer to join the back-up squad, after completing his stint as a junior.

    Oh, Wee Tat has lost his MD partner, Goh Sze Onn is rather good player. Tan Aik QUan in XD? Thought he's MS player, lol.
