Boon Heong: Winning will not be easy

Malaysia's Tan Boon Heong has revealed that he and his doubles partner Koo Kien Keat will have to be at their best to win the Thailand Open. 

Boon Heong and Kien Keat reached the final of the tournament following a hard-fought 21-19, 17-21, 21-16 win over second seeds Angga Pratama and Ricky Karanda Suwardi. 

In the final, Boon Heong and Kien Keat will be in for another challenge as they take on fifth seeds Wahyu Nayaka Arya Pankaryanira and Ade Yusuf, whom they have never played before. 

However, Boon Heong made it clear that he and Kien Keat will do whatever it takes to win as they are determined to improve their ranking. 

"We are ranked No. 41 in the world. We have some catching up to do but we are not in a rush. We just hope to get better," Boon Heong told The Star. "We have not played against Wahyu-Ade before. We have seen them play and they are good.

"We have lost to other Indonesian youngsters before so it will not be an easy match."
