    Just watched the 1st round match in the S'pore open. had a couple of observations of M'sia's so-called next generation of players under Rashid under Project whatever.

    If these are what M'sia is banking on for glory in the next era, then she should be very, very worry. I am not sure if the coach or the players are the problem, but I must agree with the observation of Li Mao on the group- they definitely lack speed and power. And I must add attitude and determination. I could not readily see talents among them (unlike LCW & Taufik (OK-he is NOT M'sian) who are oozing with talents even when they first burst into the scene).
    The only standout, if at all, is one guy- Beryno Wong. He reminds me a little of LCW when he came inot the scene.

    I concur, the so-called Malaysian Project players are not picking up steam quickly enough. At this point the Chinese would already be winning honours in World Juniors and some will break to the top team, like Chen Jin.

    The girls are a bit better, though I fail to understand why not many of the girls are participating in SG Open.

    Agree, the youngster are very slow approaching the international arena, players like Yeoh Kay Bin are still at old....stage, no impact from them....
    wonder what went wrong........:confused: :eek:

    Yes, i am very worry too. Non of them won the matches against non Msian players. Msia will have deep trouble in future if they don't improved. LCW and MHH can only play for another 4-5 years. KBH is still struggling to beat Vietnamese or Indian players.

    Dear Block306,

    Thank you for mentioning my buddy. He still has to catch up with the rest of the world but as Yap Kim Hock has said, our players should peak a little later than the rest (China / Indonesia) as they can only focus on badminton after high school.

    Lets hope this focus is not lost.

    Cheers!

    Traditionally, Malaysia don't have strength in depth (talking about singles only). The emergence of a rare talent like Lee Chong Wei took a long time coming. If another LCW comes to replace every LCW that fades away, then it would be a blessing.

    Out of so many players under Rashid, how many will graduate to the senior? Not many, as Malaysia does not have a big team. What I hope for is only for one or two of those youngsters to reach the level of Wong CH or Hafiz. That's all. Beyond that, we have to rely again on players who are coming up next.

    So of course, if you take a general look at all the junior players, the impression would be that they are mediocre.

    I like to think different --- coz I noticed over the years, Malaysians do mature to become good players : there were Ong Beng Teong, Rashid, Misbun, Foo Kok Keong, Punch Gunalan, Hafiz, Roslin, Lee Tsuen Seng, LCW,and many others.

    The next batch will be KBH (hey, he is still learning ok) and even tho the Rashid 2010 project team of youngsters are not ready, they will shine one day. LCW and Hafiz will still be around and so when they are gone, the new players will step up. So what is the worry man ?

    If he tried hard n exposed to small tournaments n slowly larger ones as much as possible, he may succeed even in only one or two years..

    he must learn form hendrawan, from loser to winner :D

    hendrawan almost kickedout from cipayung becos he was 24 yo and never won any title, after becoming a hero in thomascup 1998, he continued to play better and better and the best his result are
    wc 2001 gold medal , olympic 2000 silver medal

    I notice the men's doubles match between CTF and CCM and another younger-looking malaysian pair. It reminds me of Lord of the Rings... I felt like its humans versus hobbits. The other pair were like hobbits! In fact, many of the malaysian doybles pair are like hobbits; really small size like school boys with moustache.

    If they are hobbits and schoolboys, then I would be the smallest human in history

    No, I'm serious. I saw some pretty smaller size malaysian doubles players. I notice CTF and LWW were smashing at them like crazy.
