After four years of trial and error, former world champion Hendrawan is ready to do it his way in a bid to whip the back-up shuttlers into world-beaters.
For a start, he will place more emphasis on physical training for his shuttlers in the next six months and cut down on the number of international tournaments.
His players will probably take part in only five more Open tournaments before the year ends. These tournaments will be spaced out so that they can spend more time on their physical training.
His six players – Mohd Arif Abdul Latif, Iskandar Zulkarnain Zainuddin, Goh Soon Huat, Loh Wei Sheng, Goh Giap Chin and Nur Mohd Azriyn Ayub – will focus more on gym work and track running.
