THE badminton fraternity first witnessed the potential of Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong as world beaters in last year’s Japan Open and the Malaysian pair, presently struggling, can get their act together again and bounce back at the same tournament which begins today in the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium.

Last year’s Japan Open was a trial event for Kien Keat-Boon Heong before national doubles coach Rexy Mainaky decided to pair them off permanently and the badminton world soon took notice of their immense talent.

TOKYO: Fresh off a win at the world championships, Lin Dan hopes to defend his title at the Yonex Open Japan and continue China's badminton dominance with less than a year to go before the Beijing Olympics.

World No. 1 Lin defeated Indonesia's Sony Dwi Cuncoro in Kuala Lumpur last month to win his second consecutive men's singles title at the world championships.

Lin, the tournament's top-seeded player, is also the two-time defending champion at the Yonex Open, which starts Wednesday at Tokyo's Metropolitan Gymnasium.

The tournament favorite says he has no trouble getting motivated for the Yonex Open coming off his title in Malaysia.

"With the Beijing Olympics not too far away, it's not hard to motivate yourself," said Lin. "There are a lot of good players here, and all the tournaments from now to the Olympics are important."
