Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong going for quality instead of quantity in 2010
Let's talk about Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong going for quality instead of quantity in 2010
In 2009, Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong took part in a total of 14 international tournaments. They participated in 10 of the 12 Super Series.
This year, they will cut down their participation in Super Series tournaments. They will probably be looking at not more than 8 Super Series tournaments.
They will focus on the preparations for the more important meets;
* Thomas Cup Finals in Kuala Lumpur in May
* World Championships in Paris in August
* Commonwealth Games in New Delhi in October
* Asian Games in Guangzhou in December

To monitor how KKK/TBH will manage in their performance from now onwards
To you BCers it might not be BIG news. But, to me, it is.
BAM has always wanted for KKK/TBH to enter in as many SS tournaments in the past (and to win as many SS tournaments as possible).
Now, all the sudden, BAM has revised plans for them.
This thread is to monitor how KKK/TBH will manage their performances from now onwards.

Reduce from 10 SS to 8 SS not that much difference.

I cannot see why they would need to do that though..14 doubles tournaments / year (a little more than one a month) should not be a problem for a fit MD pair.. heck.. Lee Young dae playes both mixed and doubles in most tournaments, for example (and doing quite well )

KKK/TBH, Coaches and BAM are aiming for quality now, quality mean wins atleast a major, reduce loses to lower rank pairs, more winners over top 3 pairs, or wins more SS titles........??

How to monitor ? We knew we are not allowed to.....
1. compare KKK to LYD........because only has 1 LYD in this world.
2. expect them to win in tournaments...over those top 3 pairs
3. dream them to win big....
4. critic them when they keep losing to lower rank pairs and pair having
5. reject their excuses when they lost.....
6. critic them without comparing their achievements with the fuzzy pair.....
I am looking forwards to see how they perform from now onwards.....

IMHO, it's always better to go for quality, than for quantity
So, this 14% budget cut has affected many MAS players, including LCW's tournament participation program. Perhaps, this could be a good thing for MAS players.
IMHO, it's always better to go for quality, than for quantity.
Why participate in so many tournament and get so exhausted tournaments after tournaments? Why not play less and do better at grander tournaments, like the Thomas Cup, World Championships, All-England, etc?
