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.

MALAYSIA look a cut above their rivals in the Thomas Cup qualifying round which begins in Ho Chi Minh City today, so anything other than a place in the final will be deemed a failure.

PETALING JAYA: National men’s singles shuttler Wong Choong Hann is craving for that winning feeling, again. 

The seasoned campaigner has not won any international individual title since the 2003 Taiwan Open. 

With his career coming to an end, he knows that time is running out for him to experience the euphoria of lifting the winner's trophy. 

Choong Hann plans to give up the sport gradually after the Beijing Olympic Games in August. 

Choong Hann will have seven chances to satisfy his craving as he will be down to compete in these tournaments – German Open (Feb 26-March 2), All-England (March 4-9), Swiss Open (March11-16), India Open (April 1-6), Asian Badminton Championships (April 15-20), Singapore Open (July 10-15) and the Indonesian Open (July 17-22). 

His best chance, though, is in the German Open.
