    No doubt about it.It's a pity though.He hasn't really made a name yet in the world scene.He was together with Boon Heong when they were 12 years old.Both were under the same coach back in Alor Star.Their skills were almost perfect even at those tender years.I had the privileged of watching them in action.Boon Heong has now carved his name in the doubles with KKK.I hope to see Lim Kenn shine soon.If he still cant make it,Misbun is only his hope.I am sure Talent is always never enough.HARD WORK may work wonders.Anyway all the best to Lim Kenn.He is a delight to watch but there is something not right somewhere.

    Hafiz pulls out, Pahang

    By LIM TEIK HUAT

    PETALING JAYA: Badminton fans in Pahang have been deprived of the chance to watch the much-anticipated clash between the country’s top two men’s singles players – Lee Chong Wei and Mohd Hafiz Hashim – this weekend.

    Hafiz, the national number two, has pulled out of the Pahang Open, which is the first leg of the National Grand Prix circuit this year.

    Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) official How Kim Tho, who is the designated team manager, confirmed yesterday that Hafiz would not compete in the Pahang Open.

    “He has pulled out, citing injury. There will be no re-draw because Hafiz had a first-round bye,” said Kim Tho.

    Hafiz now has to play in the Selangor Open from July 5-8 or he will not be eligible to compete in the National Grand Prix Finals.

    There are only two legs in the National Grand Prix circuit this year because the national players have to compete in the World Super Series badminton events and also because Malaysia will host the World Championships in Kuala Lumpur in August.

    Hafiz’s withdrawal has handed national number one Chong Wei a golden chance to win the title this Sunday.

    Chong Wei has been undefeated in the local circuit since 2003, although he lost to Hafiz in the first round of the Singapore Open early this month.

    However, Chong Wei showed that he is back on the winning trail by beating Bao Chunlai of China in straight games to clinch the Indonesian Open title last week.

    The Penang-born shuttler is the top seed for the Pahang Open and also has a first round bye.

    Kuan Beng Hong should benefit from Hafiz’s absence and make the final from the bottom half but he will have to watch out for juniors like Beryno Wong and Lim Kenn.

    While the men’s singles title looks to be Chong Wei’s for the taking, the men’s doubles title will be fiercely contested.

    Indonesian Open finalists Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Mohd Zakry Latif have decided to compete in the Pahang Open after all.

    The newly formed pair skipped the ongoing New Zealand Open and their inclusion will spice up the competition for the men’s doubles crown.

    Kim Tho said a re-draw of the men’s doubles event would be made.

    “We pulled Fairuzizuan-Zakry out of the New Zealand Open because they made the final of the Indonesian Open,” he said.

    “They will now compete in the Pahang Open because Division One (where the senior national players are playing) only begins on Friday.”

    All the national men’s doubles pairs, except for Chan Chong Ming-Hoon Thien How who are playing in the New Zealand Open, will be in action in Kuantan.

    Asian Badminton Championships winners Choong Tan Fook-Lee Wan Wah and All-England champions Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong are the first and second seeds respectively.

    For the men's singles, we actually dont have anyone other than LCW. Hafiz, WCH, Roslin are either extremely inconsistent or over the hill or worst, both. Guys like Kuan Beng Hong, I doubt have the calibre. What BAM need to do is look at the grassroots i.e. players below 10, under 12s and under 15s. That is where the future of our badminton lies. BAM's factory, unlike China is not really producing top class players and I think the problem lies with the infrastructure and administration of our game in the junior levels. We need to have organised coaching at those levels as there is where the basics of the game is formed.

    As for the men doubles, I think we have a potential gem in MZ/MF while I think KKK/TBH has lost the momentum. LWW/CTF to me lacks the finishing touch.

    For the women, I believe if we have the right set up at the junior levels, talents will come thru.

    Alor Star the birth place for young talents

    Ask kokcheng and he will reveal some secrets about Alor Star, captial of Kedah, and the young talents undergoing training there.

    When I was there late last year at the invitation of kokcheng, there was a 12 year-old boy who may become Malaysia's future star player in the mould of Lee Chong Wei. Can't remember his name and unfortunately my camera failed me at the wrong time when I wanted to take a pic of him.

    Apparently Kedah has produced a reasonable number of national players for Malaysia, among the more recent ones are Kenn Lim and GanTeik Chai. But the most famous must be the AE 2007 MD champion, Tan Boon Heong! :)
