    Default Rexy cancels one-week holiday for shuttlers

    By RAJES PAUL

    KUALA LUMPUR: There was no one-week holiday for the men’s doubles players after the World Championships. They resumed training as early as 6.30am on Monday but Koo Kien Keat and his team-mates are taking it all in their strides.
    “The coach (Rexy Mainaky) is very annoyed with our performances in the World Championships. We were looking forward to a holiday but he has cancelled it. Now we have to train three times daily instead of two,” said Kien Keat.
    “We will have two sessions in the morning (6.30-8.30am and 9.30am-12noon) followed by an afternoon workout (3.30-5.30pm). We almost collapsed after the first day’s sessions.
    “But nothing is too tough for me. I have always worked and trained hard. The other players and I will get used to the routine. The coach is pushing us hard and it is all for our own good.”
    On their failure in the World Championships, the 22-year-old Kien Keat said it had showed up their lack of experience in handling the situation at the crucial stage.
    Kien Keat and his partner, Boon Heong, were the second seeds and were eliminated by Japan’s Shuichi Sakamoto-Shintaro Ikeda in the quarter-finals.
    Instead of wallowing in self pity over the defeat, Kien Keat said that they would look at the failure to win a medal from the positive side.
    “No one is to be blamed. Winning and losing are part of the game. But what is more important is to learn from the mistakes and not repeat them,” he said. “Like everyone else, Boon Heong and I wanted to win the title. The defeat will remind us to strive harder.”
    After winning three legs of the Super Series – in Malaysia, England and Switzerland – the relatively new pair in the world arena have now shifted their sights for glory in the Super Series Masters Finals, scheduled for Dec 18-23. The venue of the Finals has not been finalised yet.
    The duo will compete in the Japan Open (Sept 11-16), which is the eighth stop of the 12-leg series. Incidentally, the Japan Open last October was their first international tournament together as a pair and they finished as runners-up.
    “We will bounce back with a good showing in Tokyo. Ultimately our target for the year is to make the cut and win honours in the Super Series Finals,” said Kien Keat, who with Boon Heong also won the Asian Games gold medal last December and the Philippines Open last month. Kien Keat-Boon Heong are now in second place in the Super Series standings behind China’s Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng. The top eight pairs qualify for the Finals.

    this surely works....i still think rexy shall include more sessions...the chinese train 8 hours a day (Mas only recently 7 hrs). See.....China is now producing world class players. The hours of practice do matters.

    No it doesn't. The most important thing is what they do in that 7 hours. The right approach is more important than the amount of time spent.

    of course rexy knows what the right approach are...he was a player before and undergone harsh training.

    if they are doing 8 hours of right approach training, certainly it's better than 7 hrs. LYB certainly knows 8 hrs are good for his players.

    Default What about the players?

    Most important is the player, have they really change their attitude toward the game and mentally become stronger than before. Are they really motivated?

    TBH & KKK failed to win the game because of pressure. They made themselves nervous the last few points.

    Why won't 7 hours be good enough for Rexy's boys? You don't think internal/external influence, personality and luck to have any bearings on their performance too? Players aren't carbon copies of their peers - although China has the advantage of carbon copying the kind of player they want from the pool of talent to choose from.

    I still believe the implosion in the WC is more of a problem with mentality than ability. I don't know, I'm just not comfortable with equating the effect of training to the amount of hours spent because it seems to oversimplify things too much.

    If you're to take it literally, imho Rexy was a better player (hence better trained) than LYB was during the player days, hence he could do well enough with one less hour.

    The above doesn't sound very right, does it?

    Well said, wilfredlgf. I dont think training time have all that much influence in results. What is more important is the quality of the training.
