    JOHOR BAHARU, April 16 (Bernama) -- The defeat of reigning All-England champions Koo Kim Keat and Tan Boon Heong in the Asian Badminton Confederation (ABC) Championship here is a lesson to them not to treat their opponents lightly, national chief coach Yap Kim Hock said Monday.

    He said the two were still a long way from being at the very top of their game and the learning process was still ongoing.

    "So, the defeat to Choong Tan Fook and Lee Wan Wah on Sunday is a lesson for them. It will tell them that they are not invincible and everybody is out to beat them.

    "Once you are on the court, all your previous titles don't mean a thing," he told Bernama Monday.

    But Yap believes that the young pair will bounce back and go on to conquer the world.

    "I'm not offering excuses for them. But after their return from Europe (where they won the All-England and the Swiss Open) their training schedule has been interrupted to a certain extent.

    "Maybe they have taken things a bit too lightly. But from now on, it will be serious stuff because there are the two Super series coming up, the Aviva Singapore Open and then the Indonesian Open, followed by the World Championship in Kuala Lumpur," Yap said.

    And there will also be hard work ahead for the No 1 singles, Lee Chong Wei.

    "He has done all right in JB. But the most important thing is that he is enjoying his training under Misbun Sidek. Chong Wei has what it takes to be a world beater. It's a matter of applying himself to the task ahead," said Yap.

    if they wanted to bounce back, it will takes them tripple harder. every pair out there in the world is going to beat them especially the top Chinese pair. every pair knows they are beatable and can be beaten easily; even CTF/LWW can beat them, why not the others? besides, they found to have a very weak mental strength. forget about Sin and Indo super series. impossible for them to win. we'll have to wait till the World Championship in August. they probably will bounce back in that tournament. but bare in mind, they fail to secure the World Championship, we'll have another case of LeeCW and HafizH. sad to say, that's the trend of Malaysian players.

    well, that's my personal opinion anyway. somehow, i still feel that their maturity has not grown much and their play will be more or less affected after their failure in ABC. i would love to see them playing a top pair in future matches. that would fare how much they can bounce back.

    You are correct...XBall has lost his magic and lost a lunch bet on HH. I would have love to take on XBall bet when he bet HH go to final, except that I am so far away to collect my bet $$$. XBall should not quit his day job any time soon and forget about forecasting, his prediction is out of whacks....hahaha! (just joking)LOL! :D :D :D

    Once KKK/TBH is focused.. they can win. They were not focused in the event in JB and still can go finals. But then at the same time they have learned their lesson.

    That's harsh! I watched the videos of their SF in AE07, and F in ABC07, and I would say they played a lot better than last year. Their game has gotten more positive, instead of playing catchup all the time the past two years.

    In fact, in the AE07 SF, they could have won in the rubber game, except that luck was on the Danish pair's side.

    Of all the MAL pairs, CTF/LWW have the strongest defense, and the strongest smash. They are not as creative as KKK/TBH on court, but their bread-and-butter shots are much much better.

    Erm..anyway i like the smash of KKK n TBH better..I cant deny tat CTF n LWW team is much more stable..one more reason is they hav lack of time to practise b4 ABC so their performance in ABC not good!!

    Come on...all about match fixing. Obviously kkk/tbh purposely give them chance win the title. It is a win win situation to let ctf/lwh gain more ranking point. Anyway not a big deal to miss the ABC champ...!!!
