AJITPAL SINGH ajit­pals­ingh@nst.com.my We have Goh Jin Wei in the women’s sin­gles and the 17year-old must use the op­por­tu­nity to shine in Gold Coast.

“We have a good women’s dou­bles pair in Woon Khe Wei-Vi­vian Hoo. Con­sis­tency is their en­emy but I hope they can step-up to deliver points,” he said.

Malaysia will open their Group IC cam­paign against Ger­many on May 23, fol­lowed by Ja­pan on the fol­low­ing day. The top two from each of the four groups will qual­ify for the quar­ter-fi­nals.

Khairy also hopes Goh V ShemTan Wee Kiong will be able to raise their game fol­low­ing a spate of medi­ocre per­for­mances this sea­son.
