    Default Lee Wan Wah/Choong Tan Fook

    Does anyone like this malaysian pair? They have been playing together for 12 years but still haven't achieved any big titles.Their major achievements are 4th place in Olympic games 2000 (Their first Olympic debut), All england runner-up 2004 and 2006, world number1 in 2004, world championship (not too sure, 3rd place probably), unbeaten in Thomas cup 2004 and 2006. Their peak form was in 2004 where they bet many top pairs in tournaments and All England title was almost in their grip. Would love to see them winning the world championship this year. Hopefully...

    Delivered the winning point in thomas cup semi-final against China 2002, but faltered in the final due to their nerves, accoring to Indra Gunawan.

    They are actually one of the best doubles pair around. But its really unfortunate that everytime that they are playing at their best... injury comes along. Thats why they never manage to win any major titles..

    Won the Malaysian Open 2004 by beating Alven/Luluk. This win was very important for them to build their confidence again, according to Tan Fook and Wan Wah, after their All England Final 2004 nightmare.

    Wan Wah couldn't help feeling sad after they lost to Candra/Sigit in Thomas cup final 1998 and Malaysia lost eventually.It was their first thomas cup debut as 2nd mens double. I guess that most players would cry if they lost in their first thomas cup.

    Yap, you are right. They were in good form in 2002 and 2004 but then Wan Wah and Tan Fook got injured after their good run in tournaments. Wan Wah had undergone 2 operations and Tan Fook had a knee injury too.

    I started to like them after watching them playing a great game against Cai/Fu in AE 2004 semi-final and i like them more now after the thomas cup 2006. Still remember watching them playing in Thomas cup 98 final, they were fast but lacked skills and Indonesia was impressed by their speed after the match.Park Joo Bong had predicted them to become one of the top men doubles in the future ( when they were young then) but sadly, they haven't won any big titles yet.

    Glad that people supporting these double pair. I would say that they still have plenty of time ahead of them to prove their ability. They are still not old compared to the top Danish and Indonesian double players. They have prove their worthiness in the recent games and I have to say that I can't wait seeing them play again in WC in Madrid. Hope that they could keep up with the good work !

    They are certainly the pair to watch out for in the coming tournaments. But, judging from LWW recent exposure, I suppose by shredding a few kgs from his waistline may result in more shifter movements.
    It is unfair that the media is always on about LWW age. 32 isn't the end of the world! Look at the Danes top MD, they are even more ancient. LWW/CTF will definitely shine in the WC in Madrid later this year.

    They're my favorite men's doubles pair and one of the best men's doubles players IMO. It's unfortunate that for whatever reason they have not won as much tournaments as they should have considering their skill and talent. Coming back to the top level after 2 knee operations shows strength of will and determination (for LWW). I just hope that they are able to have at least one major tournament before they retire.
