World No 3 doubles pair Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong are the doubles defending champions and Kim Hock said there will be an overall improvement in performance and results this year.

PETALING JAYA: Top Malaysian singles player Lee Chong Wei has a good reason for skipping the limelight yesterday despite being named as the four Malaysians chosen to carry the Olympic Torch Relay when it passes through Malaysia on April 21.

The others named were Nicol David (squash), Ras Adiba Radzi (former newscaster) and Datin Paduka Sharifah Maszlina Syed Abdul Kadir (the first woman to conquer the North and South Poles).

PETALING JAYA: It will only be considered a successful outing for Malaysia in the Thomas-Uber Cup qualifying tournament if the men emerge as the champions and the women qualify for the Finals on merit.  

But, on paper, it looks easier for the men than the women to make it a double joy for Malaysia in the Asian qualifiers, which begins today in Ho Chi Minh City. 

The Malaysian men will swing into action tomorrow when they take on the Philippines and Cambodia in their Group A ties. 

The women, meanwhile, will begin their campaign against India in Group D on Thursday.
