KUALA LUMPUR: Doubles shuttler Chin Eei Hui was told to stay away from training until she was sure that injuries would not bring her down again.

And yesterday, she reported for light training at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara after being out from the scene after conceding a walkover in the quarter-finals of the Swiss Open in mid last month because of a back injury.

Despite handing a walkover to South Koreans Ha Jung-eun-Kim Min-jung, Eei Hui in her partnership with Wong Pei Tty still hung on to the No. 1 spot in the world rankings.

With the return of Eei Hui, there is hope for the duo to represent Malaysia at the Sudirman Cup world mixed team championships, which will be held in Guangzhou from May 10-17.

“Coach (Rexy Mainaky) told me not to show my face at the training centre until I am absolutely ready to train. I was anxious because it has been close to a month since I held a racquet,” said Eei Hui.

“But I was relieved when a recent test showed that there was nothing serious with my back. But I have to start off slow and easy.”

Eei Hui hoped that the worst was over for her and she could now get into chasing for honours together with Pei Tty.

“The second part of the year is more important for us. We did well in the second half last year and have to maintain that in order to stay at least among the top four until end of the year,” said Eei Hui.

The important tournament for Eei Hui-Pei Tty is the World Championships, which will be held in Hyderabad from Aug 10-16.

“Several new pairs from China are trying to establish themselves and this is a good opportunity for us to do well at the world meet. I hope to be back at my best by then,” said Eei Hui.

There are now five formidable Chinese pairs in the fray — Cheng Shu-Zhao Yunlei (world No. 2), Du Jing-Yu Yang (No. 4), Yang Wei-Zhang Jiewen (No. 10), Zhao Tingting-Zhang Yawen (No. 12) and Pan Pan Tian Qing (No. 14).
