KUALA LUMPUR: It is confirmed. The men’s doubles partnership of Malaysian Open champions Goh V Shem-Lim Khim Wah will be split after the World Championships in Copenhagen, Denmark, from Aug 25-31.
As expected, V Shem will return to his partnership with Tan Wee Kiong.
V Shem-Wee Kiong showed a lot of promise when they were paired up for the first time at the Thomas Cup Finals in New Delhi in May. They also did well at the recent Glasgow Commonwealth Games, winning the men’s doubles gold.
Khim Wah will be paired with two-time world junior champion Ow Yao Han and they are expected to be featured in all the Open tournaments after the World Championships.
Hoon Thien How will also play permanently with Tan Boon Heong.
Said national doubles coach Pang Chen Chang: “Yes, we have made all the changes. We have decided to separate V Shem and Khim Wah. Khim Wah will play with Yao Han.”
For now, Cheh Chang hopes to stay focused on the team’s preparation for the World Championships.
Malaysia will be represented by three pairs – Thien How-Wee Kiong, Khim Wah-V Shem and Koo Kien Keat-Boon Heong.
