    Hendrawan to toughen up his charges in Europe meets
    PETALING JAYA: National men’s singles coach Hendrawan will use a two-week tournament in Europe to mould his raw talents into a more courageous and confident bunch.
    Yesterday, Hendrawan left with four of his charges – Iskandar Zulkarnain Zainuddin, Misbun Ramdan Misbun, Goh Soon Huat and Loh Wei Sheng – for the French International (April 5-8) and the Dutch International (April 12-15).
    Iskandar and Misbun, representing Malaysian Leopards, did quite well in the recently-concluded Axiata Cup in Jakarta when they went down fighting to the higher-ranked Tommy Sugiarto and Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka respectively.
    The Leopards lost 3-0 to Indonesian Rajawali in the semi-final away leg.
    While admitting that his charges still have a long way to go, Hendrawan hopes to get them ready for the big stage when world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei finally retires after one last shot at ending the country’s wait for a world title at the 2013 World Championships.
    “The Axiata Cup has given our youngsters some quality matches and opportunities to gauge where they stand. It is, however, obvious that they still lack experience. They do know how to handle the situations at crucial stages,” said Hendrawan.
    “But this can be mastered over time. They are talented but immature right now. Given the right guidance and coaching, these players will be ripe for big stage. I do not want to force feed them as they are not ready yet. Let’s give them a little more time to mature into great players.”
    Hendrawan is happy that Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) are giving these players more opportunities to compete abroad.
    “These European tournaments will be a good platform for them to achieve small breakthroughs. We have also earmarked several other tournaments for them throughout this year. Their task this year is to put pressure on the seniors like Liew Daren, Chan Kwong Beng, Mohd Arif Abdul Latif and Chong Wei Feng,” he said.
    “I have made it clear to them that no one will be accorded special preferences. They have to earn the right to play in tournaments and make their way up. My promise is that I will support them as long as they are committed to giving their best.”

    How on earth did he lost 10-12 points in a row? It is even worse than the so-called 'INA disease'.
    Well, he did play really well throughout 3 games of match against Hayom, considering he played with a player which is far more experience than him, & he played on Hayom home soil.

    On 3rd set, where he lost 12 points in a row, i do not say that he lost focus or suddenly his mental went down. On that 12 points given to Hayom, some of the rally are quite long, some of the points also contributed to his unforced errors as well, although not many; however Hayom is slightly better & patient player on those rallies. There are some occasions on which Iskandar has better chance to end the rally, however he is not patient enough, then the ball went out or hit the tape, & some rallies ended up, because hayom good defense which is unexpected by Iskandar, & he just did not have enough time to recover.

    In conclusion, It is not that easy for Hayom to take 12 points in a row, Hayom did struggle & Iskandar fought back..

    Limsy, watch his match when it's up on youtube.
    Iskandar is better than junior time, Ramdan also. Mentally, I still dunno how in the world Iskandar can lose after leading Hayom 13-7 in rubber <slap on head>

    He is very inconsistent. The match between him and Hayom says it all. He looked strong at one point and the started to drop in performance. Just when he gets to the 'comfort' point like leading 13-7 to Hayom, he started to lost the edge. Then somehow, he's back in the game but only to lose it at the end.

    This guy is still very young, still a lot can be fixed and he certainly has a brighter future ahead.

    Unique style of play, amazing speed and aggressive attack. but I suppose his only downfall is his attitude, and thorough lack of sportsmanship.

    all those who beat him know what it's like to be given the middle finger when you expect a handshake.
