Malaysia went out early at this year’s 2013 Sudirman Cup after yet another loss to Germany. After loosing to Taiwan 2-3 the other day, this time Malaysia also went down with an identical score to the Germans even though Malaysia is ranked 3/4 in this tournament.
On Malaysia’s lost to Taiwan, Koo Kien Keat & Tan Boon Heong were the main culprits as they displayed another lousy performance in front of their home fans. They lost tamely to Lee Sheng Mu / Tsai Chia Hsin with a score of 18-21, 18-21. Pathetic!
Against the Germans, Chan Peng Soon / Goh Liu Ying was a letdown and lost to Fuchs Michael / Michels Birgit. Our women double pairing of Woon Khe Wei / vivian Hoo Kah Mun lost to unknown Michels Birgit / Golsizewski Johanna. Credit must be given to the Germans by showing the exit door to Malaysia as they play with their hearts out. Congratulations for a superb performance. This shows that impossible is nothing.
To Malaysia, the future looks bleak with the current batch of players and tough measures must be taken to fix this problem. If not, we are just going down and down..
