KUALA LUMPUR: The year has come to a close and national doubles shuttler Lee Wan Wah is praying that he can usher in the new season on a good note. 

Wan Wah is racing against time to recover from a knee injury suffered in the Hong Kong Open early last month and his participation in the Malaysian Open in two weeks' time with his partner, Choong Tan Fook, is in doubt. 

The 32-year-old Wan Wah has been on rehabilitation since suffering the injury and he also lost precious time on court when he had an operation recently to remove a cyst from his left knee. 

“I came back to training only last week after undergoing rehabilitation for three weeks. I still feel a bit of pain each time I try to step up training.  

“My current condition does not allow me to push myself in training,” he said.

PETALING JAYA: It is hard to discard old habits but coach Rexy Mainaky wants the top doubles pair of Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong to stop the tendency to experiment with their game in what will be a defining year for them. 

The duo, who are now ranked number one in the world, have a bright chance to end Malaysia's 12-year medal drought in the Olympics in Beijing in August. Having won seven international titles since they formed a combination in October 2006, Kien Keat-Boon Heong are seen as good bets to win the first Olympic gold medal for Malaysia.
