I'm curious to see how Mak will fare with LKW, they were partners in their junior days. Much as I liked Mak/TKS combo during 2008 WJC, I think LKW has better net skills.
THen let GWS remain with TKS, their partnership just started this year.

I wonder why they withdrew this pair from the Hong Kong edition instead of the China edition, as TWK will be playing XD in HK, save $$ if they skip China instead. Hopefully this pair can at least reach the second round and fight for their lives against GZD/XC before they lose. Hope TKH can train them to fight all the way, they tend to give up easily when the opponent has a big lead...

Whether MHC-TWK have the fire in them or not..well it may be too early to tell but their performance in AG2010 showed a big question mark hanging..hmmm

Paying the penalty after Asian Games failure
By RAJES PAUL
KUALA LUMPUR: Back-up shuttlers Mak Hee Chun-Tan Wee Kiong have been stopped from competing in the China and Hong Kong Opens as punishment for failing to live up to expectations in their first Asian Games in Guangzhou recently.
The China Open starts today in Shanghai and it will be followed by the Hong Kong Open next week.
These are the last two Super Series events on the Badminton World Federation’s (BWF) calendar.
Back to training: Mak Hee Chun-Tan Wee Kiong will not be competing in the China and Hong Kong Opens after failing to live up to expectations at the Asian Games.
The top eight qualifiers in every event after the completion of the 12 legs will compete in the Masters Finals, which will be held in Taiwan from Jan 5-9.
Hee Chun-Wee Kiong were given a chance to prove themselves in the Asiad but they let everyone down.
They let slip up a good lead to go down to Thailand’s Bodin Isara-Jongjit Maneepong, a young pair of equal standard, in the quarter-finals of the team event.
Then, in the individual event, they went down with a whimper in the opening round to Japan’s Kenichi Hayakawa-Endo Hiroyuki.
The 20-year-old Hee Chun hopes that “the tough love shown by coach Tan Kim Her will make us stronger”.
“Our coach spoke to us (Wee Kiong and I) and said it was best that we stayed back and work on our game although he had submitted our names,” said Hee Chun.
“He was not too pleased with our performance in the Asian Games and we understand. He means well. We did not do well in our first Asian Games but it has been a great lesson for us. All these will help us to be stronger as a pair.
“Wee Kiong and I still have the same dream – to be the country’s top pair. But we now know that it takes hard work and also a lot of self-belief to move up.
“We have been given a chance to compete in the Copenhagen Masters (Dec 27-29) and we hope things will improve from then on.”
In the absence of Hee Chun-Wee Kiong, Malaysia will be represented by second seeds Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif-Hoon Thien How, Chan Peng Soon-Lim Khim Wah and Goh Wei Shem-Teo Kok Siang in the two Super Series events.
It will be tough for Malaysia to win the men’s doubles title for the first time in the China Open – especially with the presence of top seeds Mathias Boe-Carsten Mogensen of Denmark, world champions Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng of China, South Koreans Lee Yong-dae-Jung Jae-sung and reigning Asian Games champions Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan of Indonesia.
Malaysia’s men’s singles challenge has also been reduced to just one player – Chong Wei Feng – in Shanghai following the withdrawals of Tan Chun Seang and Liew Daren.
Chun Seang has aggravated a knee injury while Daren will stay back to prepare for the Hong Kong Open.
Wei Feng will be in action today but he is not expected to get past world champion Chen Jin of China in the opening round.
The return of Chin Eei Hui has brought renewed hope to Malaysia’s chances in the mixed and women’s doubles events.

11-30-2010, 09:35 PM #332
yes he did............

Will they shine one day? I dunno... but one thing for sure, their smashings are kind of lacking the power of TBH or FHF

Why they are not being sent to Bahrain international challenge by BAM?
it would be interesting to see whether they can win the title there if they are there.

Nop. I was hoping they get more match experience and try participate in smaller tournaments first before participate in bigger tournaments like super series tournament.
As mentioned, they are still young though, It would be rather interesting to see how they fare in that competition if they participate in it though. (although they are expected to win quite easily there),.
