SACRIFICES and the right attitude in training are the reasons behind the success of Malaysian women’s doubles pair Chin Eei Hui-Wong Pei Tty at the Indonesia Open.
The duo gave up an easy opportunity to pick up prize money at the Pahang Open in Kuantan last month to remain at their training base in Bukit Jalil to polish up their game. It resulted in them beating several top pairs in the world to win their third Open title in Jakarta last Sunday.
The win for Eei Hui-Pei Tty was worth US$18,750. It more than made up for the RM6,000 they would have easily raked in from the Pahang Open,
Coach Rosman Razak said that the duo were able to work on their game during the one-week training under national doubles chief coach Rexy Mainaky.
“It was a solid one-week training for them. They were committed to improve on their game,” said Rosman.
He said that Eei Hui was also dedicated in making a fast recovery from her injury and he hoped that she would maintain her discipline to be in good form.
“Eei Hui knows what is expected of her in order for her partnership with Pei Tty to be successful. She works hard and we hope that she will not aggravate her injury,” said Rosman.
Eei Hui-Pei Tty will be looking for another good showing ahead of the world championships at the Malaysian Open Grand Prix Gold championships.
The world meet will be held in India from Aug 10-16 and Eei Hui-Pei Tty are certainly strong contenders to get among the medallists.
Their main challengers in the GP Gold tournament are likely to be China’s former top pair Zhang Jiewen-Yang Wei, who they could meet in the quarter-finals.
The other strong contenders for the title are formidable Chinese doubles shuttlers Gao Ling-Wei Yili, who quit their national team after the Beijing Olympics last year.
