PETALING JAYA: Women’s doubles coach Rosman Razak will not close the door on the independent players as he prepares the squad for the Myanmar SEA Games in December.

Top pair Vivian Hoo-Woon Khe Wei are the only ones set to make the journey to Myanmar for now.

Vivian-Khe Wei are ranked 14th in the world and are unlikely to qualify for the Super Series Finals, which clash with the SEA Games, given their lack of significant results.

The pair are also not competing in the back-to-back Denmark Open (Oct 15-20) and French Open (Oct 22-27) and are only likely to see action in the Hong Kong Open from Nov 19-24.Top national women's pair Vivian Hoo (behind)-Woon Khe Wei are almost certain to play in the SEA Games this December in Myanmar.

Beside Vivian-Khe Wei, the other experienced pair in the national set-up are world No. 40 Amelia Alicia Anscelly-Soong Fie Cho.

Rosman is still experimenting with the new senior-junior partnership of Lim Yin Loo-Lee Meng Yean.

And this opens the door for world No. 32 Ng Hui Lin-Ng Hui Ern, who are no longer under the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) set-up.

“For the women’s doubles squad, their main target for the year is the SEA Games,” said Rosman.

“Vivian-Khe Wei are the top pair and are more or less going. I’m still undecided on the other pairs ... players not under the BAM will still have a chance.”

Meanwhile, Rosman said that world No. 138 Yin Loo-Meng Yean have shown good promise and could still make the SEA Games squad.

“They have only played two tournaments ... I want to see how their partnership will work in more tournaments,” said Rosman.

“They have shown good progress, are good players individually ... but they need to be able to work well together.”
