    Lets discuss about this new pair in this thread. Please feel free to share pictures of them here as well.

    Besides that, I think any duscussion about Rexy the 'maestro' doubles coach is also very much relevent to this thread. Without him would any of this be possible ????

    Many people had reservations about Rexy's 'gamble' of pairing these 2 together and so soon with just the Asian Games around the corner....
    Many would consider such a decision foolish or worse : Crazy!!!

    But as they say... the only thing things that really separates Insanity from Brilliance / Genius is SUCCESS!!! To date, Rexy is producing this in SPADES!


    Koo Kien Kiet & Tan Boon Heong. They don't look like they have much in common. From their build, to their different playing styles, and even their 'on screen personality'...... one would imagine that the two wouldn't even be friends, have same kind of friends or in speaking terms under normal circumstances!

    However, this isn't any where near Normal Circumstances... besides the boiling pot of Malaysian Badminton Fans and Media, these two opposites have been drawn together and formed a bond & partnership not common. Not to forget the X Factor of having a character like Rexy as their Coach to Spice things up some more!!


    How are they / this uncommon you may ask??? Besides these 2 being more than normally athlethically gifted of course... Well for Malaysian Doubles Badminton.. we have always been well regarded as a strong nation to be reckoned with... but when was the last time any Malaysian Pair won 2 Major Titles (AG2006 & MO2007) within a span of less than 3 months???? almost never or at least no where in the past 5-7 years for my recollection!!!

    This itself could mean that KKK / TBH along with Coach Rexy have finally broken the Mould of what is Malaysian Badminton MD for the past decade or so???? It is very possible the curse of forever falling just short has been dispelled??

    I certainly hope so!!!

    So for now... only time will just have to tell if KKK / TBH under Rexy's guidiance will grow to be the stuff of Legends such as the best of TG/CW & Rexy/Ricky.

    Cheers

    TBBMBB(N)

    Both sharing the same name and birthday is not a coincidence, perhaps its the sign showing they're destine to be good partners. I see they hv the best potiential among the young pairs now. But how big they'll be depends on how "hungry" they r, hope Rexy will keep them on ground & guide them to become 1 of the greats.

    No worries. If they continue perform consistently like the way they play in the finals, they r definitely hard to beat esp having KKK covering the front court. CY/FHF is a different case, their weakness is too obvious (their defense and flat drives is weak) and CY's front court skill is only average. Thats why he couldnt set up much for FHF if the opponent can beat him at the front court.
