PETALING JAYA: National number one Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong have an extra drive to win the men's doubles world title.

Success will see them claiming the status as the world number one for the first time. If they do so, the pair forged in October last year, will become the first men's pair to be ranked at number one in less than a year as partners.
 The 20-year-old Boon Heong said that they were determined to dislodge China's Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng as number one.

“It will be great if we can achieve it by winning the world title for the first time. It will give us a place in the history books. We now have an extra motivation to go all out,” he said.

The Malaysians, who are now ranked at number two, have certainly taken the world of badminton by storm.

They are the first Malaysian pair to win gold in the Asian Games in 36 years in Doha last December and the first pair in 25 years to win claim the prestigious All-England title.  

They were the first qualifiers to go all the way to win an Open title at the Malaysian Open in January.

The other titles they have bagged are the Swiss Open and Philippines Open titles.
