    Our own pair

    As a badminton-crazy teenager (which was many many moons ago)...I used to love watching Ricky & Rexy. But I think our very own Cheah Soon Kit & Soo Beng Kiang (& later with Yap Kim Hock) were not bad too. Of course, I'm biased :)

    Tjun Tjun/Wahjudi would top my list even though they played way back......Tjun Tjun also appears to have been a promising singles player....

    For me :
    Candra/Tony is the best followed by Candra/Sigit...
    Next are Ricky/Rexy and Park Joo-bong/Kim Moon-soo

    "Much better" seems to be going too far... Park has amazing racket skill and seems to be able to put the shuttle anywhere precisely, it is awe-inspiring to see how he manipulated his opponents around the court to set up easy points. He also has unbelievable defense. However it seems to me KDM is more powerful than Park. PJB even at his prime could not smash very powerfully. In MD he kind of relies on KMS in this aspect and in XD, he relies on his skill to move his opponents around by a whole combination of shots, until his opponents messed up.

    I'm not a historian of badminton or something... but are you sure there aren't any Malaysian great men doubles pair in the past 15 years?

    Well, for now, I would say chan chong ming/koo kien keat.. they are lovely players....

    Chan/Koo still has a long way to go to catch up pairs like cheah/yap or sidek brothers. Actually I think Li/Tian, E/L should not be included. But L/T has two WC titles, E/L are very very old in age...

    I disagree, look to the future, Chan/Koo are fast learners, managed to beat the Danish pair of Ericksen/Lunguard in Thomas Cup Semis... lmao, even under the influence of an unfair umpire.

    I am not talking about their potentials. Beating E/L once does not mean much. Cai Yun/Someone (not Fu Haifeng) beated Candra/Sigit in 2003 Sudirman, does that make them one of the super pairs? No. btw, CCM is not young, his stamina, speed and power will be going downward in the future.

    Razif/Jalani is one of the four dominating pairs in the late 80s and early 90s. Cheah/Yap holds a similar position, they are the only real threat to Ricky/Rexy in the mid 90s. I don't think Chan/Koo has reached such height yet.
    Maybe they will in the future.

    no malaysian pair can ever claim to be amongst the greatest. simply bcos none of them (or ANY malaysian players for dat matter) had won tournaments of great significance. razif/jalani, cheah sk/soo bk/yap kh are all loser players. sometimes if they get lucky can beat a top pair or win small tournaments; otherwise they are juz thr to make up the numbers. dun talk abt skills or playing style, to be great u must have the medals to show 1st. kekekke

    Park Joo Bong / Kim Moon Soo is 2 times World Champion (1985 & 1991) while Tian Bingyi / Li Yongbo also twice (1987 & 1989).

    Ricky/Rezy only once (1995), but they are Olympics Champion (1996), but Ricky paired with Gunawan also World Champion (1993).

    Candra/Sigit got World Champion in 1997, but due Sigit got suspended for 2 years by IBF, then Candra pair with Tony Gunawan became Olympic champions in 2000.

    Tony Gunawan paired with Halim became World Champion 2001 and again paired with Howard Bach in 2005.

    Park Joo Bong - simply the best. the only way to beat him is to move 5x faster and smash 10x more powerful. No pair can match them except Zheng Yumen/Huang Zhanzhong. Unfortunately, like the great Zhao Jianhua, Zheng Yumen suffered long injury and when he came back, he cannot regain his previous power.

    I remember Zheng Yumen/Huang Zhanzhong... I remember Zheng had a problem in his final tournament outing where he swallowed his tongue... crazy... that was when he decided to quit and do something else... Anyway, I remember that Zheng had unbelievable smashes... :)
