• Liu Ying puts off surgery, for now (pic)

    KUALA LUMPUR: Mixed doubles specialist Goh Liu Ying has decided to give herself one more chance to salvage her career – before deciding whether to undergo knee surgery.

    On Thursday, Liu Ying decided to play on with her loyal partner Chan Peng Soon in the Malaysian Open starting next Wednesday at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil.

    Last week, she pulled out of the ongoing season opener Korean Open in Seoul because she could not go full swing in training.

    “For now, I am not experiencing any unbearable pain in my knee. I can move around during training and I have decided to gauge my condition at the Malaysian Open,” said Liu Ying.

    “I want to see whether my knee can handle the strain of playing in a competitive tournament like the Malaysian Open. If I cannot move as freely as I wish, I will opt for surgery.

    KUALA LUMPUR: Mixed doubles coach Jeremy Gan has withdrawn Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying from the Korean Open, which begins in Seoul next Wednesday, due to the latter’s knee injury. Mixed doubles pair Chan Peng Soon (left) and Goh Liu Ying will not be competing at the Korean Open, which begins in Seoul next Wednesday.

    Peng Soon-Liu Ying are the second pair to opt out of the season-opener following an earlier decision to withdraw Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong from the men’s doubles due to Boon Heong’s viral fever. 

    “Liu Ying is down with a knee injury. For now, it is best that we pulled Liu Ying-Peng Soon out of the Korean Open. Their participation in the preceding Malaysian Open (Jan 14-19) and other future tournaments depends on Liu Ying’s condition,” said Jeremy.
