He needs to join BAM. Simple as that. KLRC players cannot go far.

Kazasuma Sakai is higher ranked but since he's in Japan's Team B, he had very few tournaments. From the few tournaments that I seen him play (I think there was the Swiss Open recently, CMIIW), he never did well or get beyond the opening rounds. Therefore, Zul has to beat him to make it... which he almost did. I think he's recovering on his form and hopefully we can see him actually creating those upsets in a few tournaments or so.

One learns from winning. One also learns from the taste of defeat. Thats the reason for tournament exposure.Hopefully this defeat will spur him to go from strength to strength as he enters the next tournaments...

2012 Russian Open GP: Kazumasa Sakai won the MS Finals
MS Final result: Japanís Kazumasa Sakai won badminton's Russian Open on Sunday (01-July), denying Vladimir Malkov a second win at his home event in Vladivostok.
Kazumasaís winning margin of 21-17, 21-17 was belied by a strong performance by the Russian No. 3 and 2009 champion, who led 16-15 in the first game and held Kazumasa at 15-15 in the second before two late surges from the Japanese player made the difference.

You'd expect a WJC to win this tournament really, Ivanov is a good player and so is Sakai, but you wouldn't see Viktor struggle with this tournament.

Congratulations to Zul for being the gold medallist of the badminton individual event of SUKMA, in a field that has Misbun Ramdan Misbun and Iskandar Zulkarnain (he beat Iskandar in 2 straight games en route to the title)
Hopefully he can bring his performance forward to the international stage... as of this tournament, KLRC has beaten BAM

I have seen ZZ playing in the recent SUKMA or Malaysian Games
and even thought he won the gold medal beating a BAM player Tan Kian Meng in 3 sets,
I am not impressed by his performance.
He's a talented player but if he continues with his current physical state it will get him nowhere.
He would either becomes an injury prone player or the next yoyo.
This is the sad thing when a decision is wrongly made. Poor ZZ!

ZZ should join BAM before it is too late.
LCW may not remain there for long to spar with him.
Good that Darien Liew and Chong Wei Feng are improving with the Dato as teamate.
Keep it up DL and CWF.
