KOO Kien Keat-Tan Boon Hong can still perform at the top provided that they set a target of winning major titles.
This is former coach Rexy Mainaky's advice who believes setting goals to win big titles will make the players focused.
Kien Keat-Boon Heong have hit rock bottom as a pair and have not won a super series title for more than three years.
Reaching the final of the 2010 World Championships final, when under Rexy's guidance, is their best achievement in a major event.
"Kien Keat-Boon Heong can remain as a top pair but their minds should only be focused on winning the big (major) titles," said Rexy in Guangzhou yesterday.
"Once they are focused, they will work hard to achieve their target. They cannot win if they are just looking at doing well.
"You can have five coaches to train them but if the players don't want to do it, there is no point."
