KUALA LUMPUR: Doubles shuttler Hoon Thien How has received a third shot to make good with a senior partner.
And he is bent on giving a high-level performance with Lin Woon Fui in their second tournament together at the Asian Badminton Championships (ABC), which will begin tomorrow at Suwon, South Korea.
The stocky Thien How had partnered two other seasoned campaigners — Chan Chong Ming and Ong Soon Hock — over the last two years.
And his best results were winning one local and one international tournament with Chong Ming — at the 2006 Kuala Lumpur Open and 2007 New Zealand Open.
Before pairing up with the seniors, Thien How dominated the junior scene with Tan Boon Heong and they were world junior champions in 2004.
