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.Through: Nur Mohd Azriyn Ayob beat Indonesia’s Wibowo Henrikho in the first round of the Malaysian Open Grand Pix Gold Tuesday.
