    Let's welcome our newest TPE MD pair who have even more amazing workload than CTC. They were scheduled to played in Malaysia Masters and Indonesia Masters, but their debut was postponed. They started their partnership in Spain Masters and WON. They won't stop there as they will participate in 8 CONSECUTIVE TOURNAMENTS in 8 WEEKS. I don't see any players being come close to them in this area, not even CTC.

    Here are the tournaments that they will join
    Spain Masters WT300 (Champion)
    German Open WT300 (R2)
    All England Open WT1000 (R2)
    Swiss Open WT300 (Runner up)
    Orleans Masters WT100 (Champion)
    India Open WT500
    Malaysia Open WT750
    Vietnam IC

    They are now ranked 55 in BWF World Ranking. I believe that they can reach the top 10 at the end of this year.

    Lee Yang was paired with Lee Jhe-huei, while Wang Chi-lin was paired with Chen Hung-ling, who is now become a coach. I'm sure that Lee Yang/Wang Chi-lin partnership will surpass their own former partnerships, respectively. TPE MD is in for serious contention in MD category.

    Turns out they withdrew from Vietnam IC. But, still, participating in 7 tournaments in 7 consecutive weeks is already amazing feat.

    I actually quite enjoy watching them play. Second favorite (after Indonesia MDs :D). Unfortunately they lost to Minions today, but I believe they will be a serious threat to all the top MD pairs, as long as they stay injury-free.

    Yeah these guys are one of my favourite pairings on the circuit right now. I love the fact that both of them can play the rear court and forecourt well and that they have a really good temperament.

    As a relatively new pairing, it will take some time for others to work out how to play them. But from what I have seen, they have a lot of strong points and the makings of a very good pairing. I feel their defence can be better though as this seems to let them down quite a bit and they are not making use of WCL's big smash enough.

    What's in WCL'd bag? I can't help but think he got that telescopic stick thing from CTC... :) I'm really into injury prevention and wonder if I should get one too for pre and post on-court sessions. Seems like it work for CTC and WCD judging by how many tournaments they entered so far without much injuries.

    What an achievement by LY/WCL: 3 consecutive weeks and 3 titles!!! this is the result of their hardwork! Congratulations once again! Today at at SSF final they played brilliantly, never let off the gas pedal and managed to win again over one of MD Goat, Ahsan/Hendra.

    Hope they continue to work hard and looking forward see their match against The Minions!

    Liao/Su has been split up according to Su's instagram. Unsure whether they have been disbanded as a pairing only or removed from the national set up. Neither of them are registered for the upcoming tournaments, but all their compatriots are
