Lack of speed and power leads to Peng Soon-Liu Ying losing in the semis
By RAJES PAUL
PETALING JAYA: More speed. More power.
That’s what youngsters Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying need if they are to become the first Malaysian pair from the current batch of mixed doubles players to qualify for the 2012 London Olympic Games.
Yesterday, the pair showed plenty of promise but lacked explosive speed and power en route to losing 17-21, 18-21 to China’s Zhang Nan-Zhao Yunlei in the semi-finals of the mixed doubles event in the China Open in Shanghai.
Still learning: Malaysia’s Chan Peng Soon (left) and Goh Liu Ying lost 17-21, 18-21 to China’s Zhang Nan-Zhao Yunlei in the China Open mixed doubles semi-finals yesterday.
At least this time they put up more of a fight compared to the tame loss they suffered at the hands of the same pair in the opening round of All-England in Birmingham earlier this year.
The 22-year-old Peng Soon admitted that he was more confident of his partnership with Liu Ying.
“We did well to reach our first semi-finals in a Super Series event but we could have certainly played better against Zhang and Zhao today,” said Peng Soon in a telephone interview.
“I played too cautiously and I was not brave enough to go for the kill. Liu Ying played well at the front. If we had more speed and power, it would have been different.
“Liu Ying and I are more confident now. I still remember our defeat to this pair at the All-England. We were blown away, but this time we were able to hold them off longer. Next time, we will be out to beat them.”
Peng Soon-Liu Ying, the Asian Badminton Championships winners, are currently ranked 32nd in the world and, if they can stay consistent, can move into the top 16 in no time.
Coach Jeremy Gan said it was a good start for the duo.
“Overall, they did well here. They are a pair with huge potential and I hope they will keep it up,” said Jeremy.
“Tactically, we are still behind some of the top guns. This is an area we can improve on. Liu Ying has shown a marked improvement and let’s hope for consistent performances from them. They will take part in the Hong Kong Open next.”
The duo will take on second seeds Hendra Gunawan-Vita Marissa of Indonesia in the opening round of the Hong Kong Open on Wednesday.
Peng Soon will also be competing in the men’s doubles event with Lim Khim Wah in Hong Kong.

yup .. that article hit the nail on the head... they have everything else except power.. gly needs to have the desire to kill everytime, not just return shots. i believe they will start winning against seeded players soon... one can only hope.
they are pretty exciting to watch though

not yet watch
but on the aggressive part
i believe she had did better in BAC where she play better than liliyana natsir(sf) and kim(final)
but they are relatively unknown that time,so the opponent had learn decrease the chance of gly involve in the net play
that's why they lost to natsir/partner in mas gp gold(not sure which tournament)

Consistency is the key, if they keep playing well, and reaching QFs of SS tournaments and winning/finalists of GP gold tournaments, then they will be going to OG12, however I dont think they have much chance of winning OG.

Congratulations, they produced another upset by beating Hendra/Vita in the first round of the HK Open. However, they should not only aim for INA XD, but rather CHN XD should be the ones they should place full focus on to beat. Second round's opponents might even be tougher than today although they are not seeded.

Which Korea XD? Ko/Ha? LHJ retired, so have to wait & see if LYD or Shin get new XD partner. CPS/GLY already beat Yoo/Kim during this year's BAC.
In terms of INA, the test is whether they can beat Lilyana/Tantowi, the current strongest INA XD

What surprises me was how fast this 3-games match was played - in 37 minutes

My advice is one game at a time. Always analyse your next opponent. Don't think too far. Well done!

goh/chan vs zhang/zhao
just finished watching the match
win points:goh 2 times>chan
lost points(unforce error):chan>goh
if cps perform on par with goh,then we might witness a rubber set
only if chan peng soon stop md,or else they will find it hard to go further in high level tournament

Heard GLY is a very impressive player at the net but falls short on defence I think FranPia is harder than HenVit, so they must jia you ar..!

Good luck to Chan/Goh, they should have a decent chance for the next match.
