PETALING JAYA: Malaysia have a shot at winning a double for the second time in the Danish Open but much will depend on the performances of flamboyant men's doubles shuttler Koo Kien Keat. 

The Danish Open, which is the ninth leg of the Super Series, begins today in Odense and Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong and men's singles shuttler Lee Chong Wei are Malaysia's best bets for titles. 

Malaysia won a double in 2005 through Chong Wei and the men's pair of Chan Chong Ming-Kien Keat. 

National chief coach Yap Kim Hock said that doubles coach Rexy Mainaky had put emphasis on a more attacking style of play. 

“Kien Keat, especially, has been asked to go for quick kills instead of being too defensive. We want him to go for a straight forward attacking game. There is tendency for him to take a fanciful approach when playing defensively,” said Kim Hock. “If the necessary changes are made, Kien Keat-Boon Heong have a good chance to win the title.”
