Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia was beaten by Japan in the Thomas Cup Final but Daren Liew suggested that they must take solace in their performance and ensure that the defeat doesn't derail their good run in the future.

In truth, Malaysia didn’t play badly at all in the Thomas Cup Final. Daren Liew was able to orchestrate a greatest fight back of the final, coming back from 10-16 to tie the game at 17-17 and went on to win 21-18 in the second set.

 

With that determination in the Thomas Cup final, Daren Liew believes he still has plenty firepower left in the bag for him to continue his quest to become a top ranked shuttler.

It is possible that the devastating three-game loss to Takuma Ueda in Thomas Cup in New Delhi on Sunday could linger for quite some time for Daren Liew.

However, the 27 year old Daren Liew is confident he could recover from his defeat by getting back to being a stronger player.

"I do not be haunted by the defeat like what had happened to Kuan Beng Hong. I am going to train hard and to emerge stronger in the upcoming tournaments."

Kuan Beng Hong quit the Malaysia national team in 2010. His biggest failure was at the 2006 Thomas Cup Finals in Japan. In a deciding match of a semi-final tie against Denmark, he was a letdown and was beaten by Joachim Persson. Beng Hong never really recovered from the shattering blow.

"Although I lost in the final, but I think that was my best performance in Thomas Cup,” said Daren.

Daren won the 2012 French Open but had been struggling since due to due to injuries.

"I will try my best to move up the BWF ranking. The heel injury I had last year really affected my performance,” Daren added.
