I think we should be less harsh with the guy, has he any record of saying arrogant things or whatever? (pls don't reply on this point here).
Maybe he is a victim of circumstances, moulded in a tiny private club
at loggerheads with mighty BAM without access to its facilities, froeign coaches and technology.
He is back with BAM but old habits die hard.He is a good player with good skills but maybe his approach to the game cannot compete with players from stronger nations. He seems to have good racquet skills like his mentors but seem unable to break out of his old mindset of playing his guts out and cutting out the fancy stuff,for example.
I think I have seen such problems with many players coached by their parents and trying to join the national squad. They may dominate the ranks
domestically, but when up against the world people read their games like a book and they have difficulty changing their style to keep up with other technologies.
I think a choice should be made between an eclectic style against one moulded by local talent into a local brand.Time will tell.

If you can find the Doha Asia Games match 2-3 years ago. Hafiz vs Lee HI.
I think he was like 19-5 leading then he lost it.
