Hard work ahead for Misbun and Rexy before world meet

Posted by SEJAHTERA BADMINTON on March 11, 2009


PETALING JAYA: The All-England exposed Malaysia’s fragility in the men’s singles and doubles departments even though all had looked well and good from the outside.

World number one Lee Chong Wei, in reality, still ranks below China’s Olympic champion Lin Dan in standard.

And in the doubles, Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong and Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif are in a league of their own for inconsistency.

Beijing Olympic silver medallist Chong Wei needs to be more solid in his approach while the doubles players have to be steadier for Malaysia to have any hope to nail an elusive title in the World Championships in India from Aug 6-10.

In the just concluded All-England in Birmingham, Chong Wei found out yet again that Lin Dan is the superior player in a 19-21, 12-21 defeat in the final on Sunday. And it will be a matter of time before Lin Dan regains the world number one ranking.

National singles chief coach Misbun Sidek has a tough task to help Chong Wei come up to Lin Dan’s standard and it is doubtful that he can pull it off in the next few months.

And if the performances of Indonesian Taufik Hidayat and Dane Peter-Gade Christensen are anything to go by, these two players could also make life miserable for Chong Wei.

The lack of preparation and stamina probably saw Taufik letting Chong Wei off the hook in the semi-finals. But in the previous round, Taufik showed what he was capable of when he broke apart a solid Christensen with an impressive 21-17, 21-18 win.

Misbun said that he was determined to remove the doubts on Chong Wei’s ability ahead of the World Championships.

“Chong Wei is in his own class. It is not easy to be where Lin Dan is. The Chinese is a complete player. But it is not impossible for Chong Wei to be in the same league with Lin Dan,” he said.

“If Chong Wei can remain consistent in training and work on developing some specialities in his attacking game, I am confident that he will be a threat to Lin Dan.”

But Misbun’s problem is more than just developing Chong Wei into a more solid player.

“Lin Dan enjoys quality in sparring because there are so many Chinese youngsters coming to the fore,” he said.

“But here, the youngsters are gaining more from Chong Wei in the sparring sessions. There is no depth in the back-up squad but we are working on this area.”

Unlike Misbun, national doubles chief coach Rexy Mainaky have a big pool of players and many new talents are coming through. But Rexy has a set of different problems.

“We have depth in our doubles departments. But when one is playing well, the other does not. I have to look into ways to improve on the players’ consistency,” he lamented.

“This however, depends more on the players themselves on the day of the competition.”

Kien Keat-Boon Heong and Fairuzizuan-Zakry are still seen as the better bets to make an impact in the World Championships.

It will be a tall order for the top women’s pair of Chin Eei Hui-Wong Pei Tty in the company of a string of formidable Chinese pairs. In the All-England they were beaten in the second round by Pan Pan-Qing Tian.

Rexy: Chong Wei a good role model for our doubles stars

Posted by SEJAHTERA BADMINTON on March 11, 2009


PETALING JAYA: The determination of seasoned campaigners Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng of China, the never-say-die attitude of Mathias Boe-Carsten Mogensen of Den­mark and the fighting displays of South Korean youngsters Hwang Ji-man-Han Sang-hoon were the hallmarks of the All-England men’s doubles competition.

But national doubles chief coach Rexy Mainaky said that the Malaysian doubles players did not have to look far to be inspired and motivated by others.

He said that there was a good role model in their own backyard and challenged his players to be as committed as national number one singles shuttler Lee Chong Wei.

World number one Chong Wei proved yet again that he could be depended on to challenge strongly for honours in the men’s singles. He reached his first All-England final but lost tamely to Lin Dan of China in Birmingham on Sunday.

Despite the defeat, Rexy was impressed with the way Chong Wei put his mind, heart and soul into his preparations for the prestigious tournament.

In contrast, the men’s pairs under Rexy’s charge, Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong and Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif, crashed out with below par performances in the men’s doubles quarter-finals. The top women’s pair of Chin Eei Hui-Wong Pei Tty also went down meekly in the second round.

“Chong Wei went all out in training. He was so focused and committed. Although he lost, one knows that he gave his best out there,” said Rexy. “It is my hope that the doubles players will stay focused in training and give the same commitment in competition. I will not be disappointed if I know that my players had given their best.”

Kien Keat-Boon Heong were making an attempt to regain the title they won in 2007 but their winning run against Boe-Carsten ended in the quarter-finals. Fairuzi­zuan-Zakry went down to Ji-man-Sang-hoon at the same stage.

Both Boe-Mogensen and the young Korean pair gave good accounts of themselves before going down to the fired-up Cai Yun-Haifeng in the semi-final and final respectively.

The Malaysian men’s doubles pairs go into action at the Swiss Open in Basel tomorrow and Rexy hopes to see greater fighting displays from his changes

Rivals struggle to stay with China juggernauts

Posted by SEJAHTERA BADMINTON on March 11, 2009


PETALING JAYA: China have made a spectacular return to the international stage after a three-month absence with a rare feat of scooping all five titles in the All-England.

And the heat is on their traditional rivals, including Malaysia, to find a way to close the yawning gap.

In Birmingham, the Chinese players showed that the break from competitions did wonders to their appetite to win honours. The champions were Lin Dan (men’s singles), Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng (men’s doubles), Wang Yihan (women’s singles), Zhang Yawen-Zhao Tingting (women’s doubles) and He Hanbin-Yu Yang (mixed doubles).

It was the first time in the history of the modern All-England that country won all five titles. The last country to achieve the feat was Denmark in 1948.

It was also the first time that China made a clean sweep if the titles in a major championships outside their country. They won all the World Cham­pionship titles in Beijing in 1987.

“We have great team spirit and all the players wanted it to happen,” said delighted chief coach Li Yongbo. “I think they put in far more than anyone else.”

The most significant success of the Chinese team at the All-England on Sunday was probably in the women’s singles. Unseeded Wang Yihan scored a sensational win over hot favourite Tine Rasmussen of Denmark and it showed that China have a player to step into the shoes of two-time Olympic champion Zhang Ning.

And Lin Dan’s blasting of Malaysian world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei underlined the fact that China will still dominate in the men’s single for some time yet.

While China continue to find new stars for their aging players and maintain a high standard of play in other events, the other countries have problems in producing world-class players.

And a former coach with the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM), Cheah Soon Kit, said that Malay­­sia lagged behind China because of the poor execution of plans.

“I have come through their system. I know that they like to make plans but are poor in implementing them. China are way ahead of the others,” said the former national doubles star.

“It will take years for the others to catch up unless something drastic is done. The BAM should not only think of the 2012 London Olympic Games but also way beyond that in order to narrow the gap.”

Soon Kit was also impressed with China’s plan to start a Super League later this year in a bid to revive the interest of the sport among their youngsters and also to prevent their players from being snapped by other countries.

“China are far sighted. Imagine, the number of youngsters who will come through this league,” he said.

Their Super League is being revived after a failed attempt seven years ago. About 20 million yuan will be pumped in the league, which is expected to create excitement in the provinces.

The China BA are expected to come out with a way to ensure that their top athletes get to compete in the league and also to take part in major international tournaments.

In contrast, there are not many national domestic competitions in Malaysia. The focus is on the elites and if more emphasis is not given at the grassroots level, Malaysian badminton will certainly not be able to come to the class of the Chinese.
