INDONESIAN Rexy Mainaky has quit as the national doubles coach of the Malaysian team – barely seven months before the Beijing Olympic Games and four months before the Thomas Cup Finals. 

His decision comes a day after his charges – Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif and Tan Bin Shen-Ong Soon Hock – crashed out in the second round of the ongoing Malaysian Open badminton championships at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil yesterday. 

There were high expectations on defending champions Kien Keat-Boon Heong but a poor showing – especially by Boon Heong in the decider – saw them losing 19-21, 21-18, 21-19 to Denmark’s Jonas Rasmussen-Lars Paaske on Thursday.

VETERANS Choong Tan Fook-Lee Wan Wah and Chan Chong Ming-Chew Choon Eng advanced to the quarter-finals of the Malaysian Open badminton championships but the celebrations were muted following the shocking exit of defending champions Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil last night.

The signs were already there when the world number one pair struggled to beat third-ranked Indonesians Hendra Gunawan-Joko Riyadi in their opening match on Wednesday. 

And their worst fears came true when they crashed 19-21, 21-18, 16-21 to former world champions Lars Paaske-Jonas Rasmussen of Denmark in the second round. 

This is the second successive time that they have failed to make it past the early rounds of a Super Series tournament. Kien Keat-Boon Heong lost to Taiwan’s Tsai Chia-hsin-Hu Chung-shien in the second round of the China Open last November. 

This time, Boon Heong proved to be the weak link and it was no surprise to see the Danish pair going on to claim victory in 59 minutes.
