Yes, Malaysia has been lacking in team work and mentoring during individual events. Sad case. That is why you see lcw is up alone. I don't think he is a mentoring type. Someone must have taught him to be selfish. From out side you see him as a humble person. Eg after winning a tournament. Inside, I don't think he gives a damn to anyone. (I was told).
With this Team event happening, a little of support from colleagues sure brings in some % in terms of spirit and belonging.
If, I am the captain, I will definitely on the court to cheer them up during the 11 point breaks. Sad to see that lcw is not showing some leadership here.

Ah Koo adds playing MS in his resume:
"Kien Keat, who didn't expect the match to last until the third singles, had to be guided by singles and doubles head coaches Rashid Sidek and Tan Kim Her respectively.
The last time Kien Keat played a competitive singles match was in the 2000 Asian Junior Championships and Dionisius Hayom Rumbaka had no problems sealing a 21-8, 21-9 win.
"It is not easy for a doubles player to play singles as the footwork is totally different and it is embarrassing too. But I was asked to play because Lee Chong Wei and Hafiz Hashim had been given a rest," said Kien Keat.
"We had already qualified and the pressure was off. There was no point playing in the third placing match and even Indonesia didn't show any urgency.
"We had a lot of pressure in the group stages and I am glad we overcame it.
"The focus is now back to the Olympics and I will sacrifice everything for the next five months to go for a medal.
"I have no intention of retiring after the Olympics but will think about my options only after I achieve my target in London."Also from The Star :

National coach Pang Cheh Chang said Malaysia did not field their best lineup because they did not see any point in doing so.
“Malaysia and Indonesia had already confirmed tickets for the Finals (by making the semi-finals). So, we made use of the opportunity to try out all our back-up players. They will be competing in the German Open and needed the workout,” said Cheh Chang.
“Obviously, singles is not Kien Keat’s cup of tea but he did have a good warm-up. He played like a cartoon character and it was hilarious to watch,” added Cheh Chang.
