Goh Wei Shem/Teo Kok Siang are now in the semi-finals of the Korean GP. The odds will be against them to take on Ko Sung Hyun/Yoo Yeon Seong. Hope they can be only the second pair who has beaten this formidable combination
*The only Malaysian pair who had beaten the Koreans is the Mak/Tan combo.

because if their recently poor performance in asian games.
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.

Time for them to reflect on what went wrong. I believe it's their lack of hunger for success and continuous drive for improvement.

GWS/TKS are ranked 24 now, but after China SS they will definitely overtake MHC/TWK who is ranked at 22. CPS/LKW are down to WR# 40+
I think most consistent is still GWS/TKS, while MHC/TWK and CPS/LKW has their up and downs. However, does not mean that GWS/TKS is the best among the 3. But consistency is good.

All 3 pairs are not sent to 2011 Msia Open but CPS, LKW, TWK will play XD.
In 2011 Korea, only GWS/TKS names are listed. CPS will play XD with GLY, looks like they are getting the automatic slot for XD in SS tourneys.

Communication breakdown puts back-up pairs out of home Open
By LIM TEIK HUAT
KUALA LUMPUR: A lack of proper communication has resulted in all four national back-up men’s pairs under the charge of Tan Kim Her not getting the chance to feature in the Malaysian Open next month.
The entries for Mak Hee Chun-Tan Wee Kiong, Chan Peng Soon-Lim Khim Wah, Goh Wei Shem-Teo Kok Siang and Ow Yao Han-Chooi Kah Ming were not submitted for the men’s doubles competition of the home Open scheduled for Jan 18-23 at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil.
Hee Chun-Wee Kiong, Peng Soon-Khim Wah and Wei Shem-Kok Siang would have been eligible to play in the main draw of the season-opening Super Series tournament even if the event attracted the world’s top ranked pairs as all of them are ranked inside the top 30.
Instead, they will be resigned to playing only the mixed doubles.
The Badminton Association of Malaysia’s (BAM) entries for the men’s doubles are world No. 2 Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Ong Soon Hock, Hoon Thien How-Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif, Vountus Indra Mawan-Mohd Lufti Zaim Abdul Khalid and Nelson Heg Wei Kiat-Teo Ee Yi.
Two independent Malaysian pairs – Gan Teik Chai-Tan Bin Shen and Chan Chong Ming-Lee Wan Wah – are also in the fray.
World No. 1 Mathias Boe-Carsten Mogensen of Denmark, South Korea’s Lee Yong-dae-Jung Jae-sung and China’s Fu Haifeng-Cai Yun are not among the entries and it would have been a good chance for the back-up pairs to stamp their mark in their own backyard.
The BAM general manager, Kenny Goh, said yesterday: “I find it strange that the mixed doubles entries were submitted but not the men’s doubles.
“It only came to our attention after the deadline for entries. The coach admitted that he made a mistake in not submitting their names.”
To be fair to Kim Her, who is now taking a break from coaching, he was with the players at the Hong Kong Open when entries closed on Dec 14.
The incident has only highlighted the need for a better communication set-up between the coaching department and administrative side of the BAM now that different coaches are in charge of different groups.
Hahaha, so this is the reason why....
12-28-2010, 05:32 AM #202
the way i look at it, it should not be the coach to be blamed entirely
its the administrative side, who is in charge definitely does not know who these doubles players are
one look at the malaysian entries without their names should prompt them to make a re-confirmation with the coach responsible, if not avaliable, to the chief coach
12-28-2010, 07:01 PM #203
independent coach do the good job than national BAM Coach???That's two doubles will play...

Funny how they remember to enter their name for the xd category but not md.. what a joke...!
