Badminton: ABC Battle Ground For Shuttlers Before Thomas Cup

KUALA LUMPUR, April 9 (Bernama) -- The Asian Badminton Championship (ABC) starting Monday will be the final battle ground for shuttlers, especially the second liners, to prove their mettle in the run-up to the Thomas Cup final from May 9-15.

To date, only world number one player Datuk Lee Chong Wei and doubles pair Koo Kean Keat-Tan Boon Heong looked set to make the grade.

Among the players in the running were single player Hafiz Hashim and junior doubles players, namely Goh Wei She, Mak Hee Chun and Tan Wee Kiong.

National doubles chief coach Rexy Mainaky said junior players would be adjudged by him along with other coaches, namely Tan Kim Her, Rosman Razak, Pang Cheh Chang and Chang Kim Wai.

"The ABC Tournament in New Delhi will be the last battle ground for players to live up to our expectation before we name the Thomas Cup line-up," said Rexy.

On Malaysia's chances in Thomas Cup, he said it was 50-50.
