MALAYSIA'S Wong Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui finally left their mark on the world stage when they captured the Denmark Open -- their first Super Series title -- in Odense on Sunday. Pei Tty-Eei Hui, the World No 10, beat Indonesia's scratch pair Rani Mundiasti-Jo Novita (Ina) 23-21, 21-12 in 32 minutes.

It was also their first win in an Open final after having finished runners-up at the 2005 Indonesian and Dutch Opens, and this year's Thailand and Japan Opens.

Prior to Sunday's win, their biggest title was the gold medal at the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games.

Pei Tty-Eei Hui's Denmark effort will definitely be a confident boost for the Malaysian pair ahead of the French Open which starts today.

Pei Tty-Eei Hui showed plenty of nerves in the opening game and were fortunate to win 23-21 against the unseeded Indonesian pair. Winning the first game did wonders for Pei Tty-Eei Hui who started mixing their game in the second with attacking play and solid defending to win 21-12 and nail the title.
Meanwhile, home hero Peter Gade Christensen secured his third Denmark Open and his first Super Series title since the 2007 Malaysia Open by defeating teammate Joachim Persson 21-18, 17-21, 21-14 in the final.Chin Eei hui (left) and Wong Pei Tty beat Indonesia’s Rani Mundiasti-Jo Novita (Ina) 23-21, 21-12 to win the Denmark Open yesterday.

THE Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) will in future be more selective when sending players to international championships to ensure the players are at their best to maintain their world ranking.

Its president Datuk Mohd Nadzmi Salleh said there was no use in sending out-of-form players to championships as their poor performances would affect their ranking to qualify for bigger tournaments like the Super Series.

"We have our annual targets and can determine which championship to compete or not," he told reporters at his Aidilfitri open house on Shah Alam on Sunday. "The players must be fully prepared for any championship. There is no point in sending players who will only lose due to lack of fitness and preparation."

Nadzmi said BAM will also be sending its promising second stringers to several championships of the Super Series.
