MEN'S doubles Goh V Shem-Lim Khim Wah inflicted more damage to the battered pride of Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong by shocking the World No 3 to win the Malaysia Open grand prix gold title at Juara Stadium yesterday.
V Shem-Khim Wah registered a comprehensive 22-20, 21-15 victory to claim their first international title in 39 minutes.
The effort also stripped Kien Keat-Boon Heong of the only title in their grasp in the last 12 months and left them to ponder their career which has hit rock bottom.
Kien Keat-Boon Heong still have an escape clause despite their lacklustre performance as the BA of Malaysia (BAM) has set a final target in the World Championships in Guangzhou in August.
As for V Shem-Khim Wah, the title was a timely boost after poor form forced the coaches to split them last year and only recombined again five months ago where they earned qualification for the World Championships.
