KUALA LUMPUR: Former women’s singles star Wong Mew Choo has quit as Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS) coach after only 16 months – sparking speculation that her marriage to Lee Chong Wei may take place sooner than expected.

Yesterday, Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) secretary Ng Chin Chai confirmed Mew Choo has tended her resignation, citing personal reasons.

Mew Choo, the 2007 China Open champion, retired as a player last year due to a string of nagging injuries. She became a coach in BJSS in May.In the mood for marriage?: Wong Mew Choo tended her resignation as BJSS coach citing personal reasons.

Mew Choo’s resignation, however, will not jeopardise the women’s singles players’ preparations for the World Junior Championships from Oct 25-Nov 3 in Tokyo as China’s Chi Shanrong will take over as coach.

Shanrong had been demoted as the elite women’s singles coach after failing to raise the standard of some players under his care for more than a year.

Said Chin Chai: “Mew Choo has resigned but she did not state her reasons.

“Some coaches have also left the BJSS before this and there are some vacancies. We may bring in some new faces at the end of the year.”

Currently, there is no chief coach for the BJSS programme but China’s Zhou Kejian is expected to be given the mandate.

Boys’ singles coach Kejian has made good progress with the players under his tutelage.

As for Mew Choo, her decision to leave may be seen as a sign of an early wedding as she is expected to tie the knot with her boyfriend Chong Wei.

So far, they have not confirmed a date for their wedding. If it happens this year, it will be the second biggest wedding between badminton stars after China’s Lin Dan and Xie Xingfang recently.
