LIANG Wei Keng / WANG Chang

avatar m

The recent Malaysian Open was the first time I’ve seen this pair play and have been quite impressed, especially Wang Chang. This is the first Chinese MD pairing I’ve seen that seems to play a more Indonesian-style game, an excellent fast flat game, fast feet, refuses to lift, and lots of nice angles. They seem to be playing with a genuine smile too and are able to laugh off silly errors. I think this relaxed attitude will only help them achieve more as they develop.

I can see the makings of a top pairing here. Still a bit of a rough diamond with a lot of refining to do and some creases to iron out but lots to be excited about.
