PETALING JAYA: It will only be considered a successful outing for Malaysia in the Thomas-Uber Cup qualifying tournament if the men emerge as the champions and the women qualify for the Finals on merit.
But, on paper, it looks easier for the men than the women to make it a double joy for Malaysia in the Asian qualifiers, which begins today in Ho Chi Minh City.
The Malaysian men will swing into action tomorrow when they take on the Philippines and Cambodia in their Group A ties.
The women, meanwhile, will begin their campaign against India in Group D on Thursday.
