    Only two pairs are eligible from each country providing that both pairs are top 8. Which means that they will have to be ranked higher than Goh/Tan to pretty much qualify. (Assuming their rank is high enough after surpassing those two). Currently, Goh/Tan would be rank #10 if I read the rules correctly if the Olympic qualification period ended today.

    KKK & TBH have dropped out of Mauritius International.
    I guess the young Indian pair of Shlok Ramchandran & Sanyam Shukla will win.

    Looks like both Malaysian pairs have withdrawn from US open, both KKK/TBH, and HTH/LKW. Anyone with a clue what happened?

    Just play and quit worrying whats on the other side of the net.

    Sitting close to the action, I despair seeing/hearing their coach encouraging
    this pair to take thing lightly when they are in a position to win the match.
    They would begin to play funny shots, laugh at their mishits when not under
    pressure, list goes on and on.
    Meanwhile, their coach at courtside - "Kita enjoy ur; satu lagi ur".
    "Youth is wasted on the young" comes to mind.
    This pair can play, there is no doubt in that quarters.
    What they lack is discipline and mental strength.
    Its the same thing with hoon/lim and goh/tan.
    Seeing some of them close up in recent GPG and SS, I can see why
    Msian bmton is shot.

    you mean these young pairs need to be like the era of Cheah Soon Kit/Yap Kim Hock, Razif/Jalani, Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah & Chan Chong Ming/Chew Choon Eng...?

    KKK/TBH were still planning to go to US Open. They emailed two weeks before the tournament asking if they can still get accreditation and etc. but then 2 days before, they decided to not go.
