China Will Be Malaysia's Main Obstacle In Thomas Cup Quest - Fairuzizuan

KUALA LUMPUR, April 7 (Bernama) -- China's consistency will be Malaysia's main obstacle in trying to win the Thomas Cup said one half of Malaysia's number two men's doubles pair, Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari.

The strength of the Chinese players was their consistent performances, compared with those from Denmark and Indonesia, a fact that cannot be taken lightly, said Mohd Fairuzizuan.

However, playing at home (Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil) and in front of the home crowd would certainly work in our favour, he said.

"I can't say ... (a definite chance to win), but the advantage will be there. Malaysia is a strong team considering we have the men's world number singles player and a world number one pair and we have the support of the home fans," he told Bernama during a training session at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara here on Wednesday.

Fairuzuzian said although training has not reached 100 per cent yet, the spirit and mood of the players, was already geared towards the competition.

He added that he and his partner Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif have every chance to be listed as the number two pair behind Koo Kean Keat-Tan Boon Heong, who are the world number one pair and the country's top pair.

The final list would however, be announced after the Asia Badminton Championships in New Delhi from April 12 to 18.

Apart from the top two pairs, the performance of national back up squad, Mak Hee Chun-Tan Wee Kiong would also be monitored by National Doubles head coach Rexy Mainaky.
