This will be a good test for Rexy .
Need more high profile coaches?
Somehow we rely too much on big names coaches to guide the Malaysian players to the next level. Before we had Park Jubong, Morten Frost but failed to achieve anything meaningful and now Li Mao and Rexy ... I have yet to see any impact of Li Mao on our players and certainly not sure how much Rexy will bring to Malaysia either. Base on results of Singapore Open, Malaysians do not look good prior to World Championship :crying:
But looking on the Malaysian Open, I feel that being under LiMao has helped Lee Chong Wei, Especially with his offensive play which has improved tremendously
I usually right but not this time during Malaysia Open so high performance coach Li Mao does make impact on Lee Chong Wei.
Of course, it takes a real man to admit his mistake
Li Mao is very strict with his boys. No mercy attitude towards them.
Indeed, so much attention has been given to the team's selection and quite a bit of money spent sending the Malaysian team to the Mardrid WC.
But in the end, all the time, effort and other resources came almost to nothing! Because the players who were supposed to deliver failed miserably. It took the unfancied XD pair of KKK and WPT to present Team Malaysia with a surprised bronze medal. It appears this pair hardly had the time to train together but yet it was their desire to give of their best that saw them beat the WR1 and the previous titile holder, the Indonesian partenership of Nova and Natsir.
But KKK/WPT's lack of practice showed when they met and got beaten quite easily by the English pair of Clark and Kellogg in the SF.
Apart from pride, quite a bit of other considerations are at stake and no wonder national associations are reluctant to send their players oversears if there is no hope of either getting the medals or letting thier players benefit from their experience by playing against players from elsewhere or in quite different playing conditions.
PBSI was in the news not too long ago for being accused of not exposing their players overseas for more competitions. I wonder whether they will now be more selective since none of the Indonesian players were able to win any medals in this WC?
And in the case of Malaysia, the national women's coach appeared to be at a loss as to how club players could be selected to participate in the Doha Asian Games in December despite their success in certain tournaments. What about the national players who toiled almost daily in the national team?
Exactly, who should be selected to represent one's country?
