Liew Darenhi ... i want to know more about liew darren... does anybody have any info about him? at 1st i tot his real name is darren liew... but i found out most of the newspapers call him liew darren... btw, i've seen him as the most consistent player in the elite squad compared to tan chun seang, chong wei feng, chan kwong beng... im impressed with his performance during his Indonesia gp gold semi final achievement... maybe he can become the new malaysian hero to replace lcw when he retires...

His full name is Liew Daren, his name is joined together.
His chinese name is Liu Guo Lun.
I agree that this is a good time to open a thread for him, after his exploits in the BAC. He is 24 this year, by no means young and most likely he will never be a successful player. However, he is a pretty decent compared to the others we have currently. Among all the backup players, he has performed the best internationally many times compared to the others. However, he tends to always lose in internal battles on the local circuit.
Saw him play once before against Dicky, he has good aggression but is pretty darn prone to unforced errors. He can go into a streak of unforced errors by smashing out, smashing into the net, lifting out the the sidelines and this can be really frustrating!
His big name victories :
Boonsak Ponsana (Malaysian Open 2009, first round)
P. Kashyap (Chinese Taipei Open, third round)
Wang Zhengming (Denmark Open 2010, 2nd qualifying round)
Dicky Palyama (Denmark Open 2010, 1st round)
Wong Wing Ki (Badminton Asia Championships 2011, 2nd round)
And most recently lost to Du Pengyu in a very tight encounter of 16-21; 21-19; 19-21.
Anyway, I wish Liew Daren all the best.

he's already 24? i tot he's only 20 - 21 yrs old... well, 24 years old is a bit late to achieve big thing in international stage since most of the chinese players started at the very young age and winning / perform well at the major tournament (chen jin 1st AE2008, wang zhengming 2nd bac 2010, chen long semi final AE 2011)... but hopefully there's still time to prove himself able to capture major tournament even in their 30's (poul erik hoyer larsen & fung permadi prove it already)... eventhough i never saw him playing, but from what i heard, he is the most consistent among the elite players based on his results in international stage...
anyway, the match against du pengyu sounds promising... it's a tough and good fight for him... who knows maybe he can become MAS no.2 behind LCW ... anyway, arif latif is another player to watch... he's got the talent but not the consistency ... he's still young if im not mistaken... good luck to both of them...

Perhaps Liew Daren can emulate Wong Choong Hann

In Ina Open, he only mananged to beat a Young player from INA, Hermansyah and Ramdan misbun to entered SF, lost to Alam Yunus in rubber games...........
Worse in Den SS, one win over DP in 1st round lost to HY in straight game in 2nd round.......
04-23-2011, 02:56 AM #15
In INA GPG, he didn't lose to Yunus, he defeated Yunus but lost to Hayom in the semi-final. Maybe this one not so good. I'm sure Denmark SS better than this BAC where he just beat Wong Wing Ki and lost to Du Pengyu in 3 games.
Know why I consider this good?
BECAUSE NO OTHER BACKUP PLAYER CAN DO THAT. LOL
Btw, must agree with you that Malaysia SS 2009 also considered a good performance. But Daren has been yoyo-ing a lot.

Anyway, he might be an above average player if he sustains this performance, but don't expect Liew Daren to ever become a good or a successful player... too late for that!
He has two more consecutive tournaments to go, next week in India and in Malaysia GP Gold. My targets for him :
India - Proceed to his 2nd only SS quarterfinal. Have to defeat Chan Yan Kit and take revenge on Hu Yun/defeat Yunus again.
Malaysia GP Gold - Defeat Taufik Hidayat
