KUALA LUMPUR: National doubles chief coach Rexy Mainaky harboured hopes to start afresh with the men’s shuttlers after a good holiday with his family in Indonesia.

But now he has been presented with a “big headache”.In a quandary: Rexy Mainaky was not consulted by the BAM in the hiring of Tan Kim Her (right) as a coach.

Rexy, who resumed work yesterday, certainly seemed slighted after he was kept in the dark over the appointment of Tan Kim Her as the latest member of the doubles coaching set-up.

He does not know how the former national doubles shuttler would fit into his plans.

But the Indonesian has no choice but to look again at the work delegation of his coaching team when the Badminton Association of Malaysia’s (BAM) coaching and training committee meet.

The BAM hired Kim Her last week and he is expected to report for work next month.

KUALA LUMPUR: It seems that a strategist is sorely missing in the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) set-up.

National singles chief coach Rashid Sidek asked for a coach last year to assist Hendrawan but the BAM were silent on it.

Instead, they hired Tan Kim Her even though there was no request for a doubles coach or a pressing need for one in the doubles department.

Rashid said that he had requested for a coach to assist Hendrawan as the Indonesian had a big group of players under his charge.

“My hands are also tied with administrative work and meetings. I try to assist the other coaches the best way I can,” said Rashid.

Team England has endured a winter of sweeping changes and retirement denials but the squad’s singles and doubles players will set off this weekend for back-to-back Super Series openers in Korea and Malaysia in buoyant mood.

Last month, England lost Donna Kellogg, the doubles specialist, and Jill Pittard, the national women’s singles champion, to retirement. Nathan Robertson also scoffed at suggestions that he was about to step off court while men’s doubles pair Chris Adcock and Robert Blair denied splitting up and will play together for one more year.

With 50, 310 points, Vietnamese top badminton player Nguyen Tien Minh still remains his 11th position in the latest rankings of the Badminton World Federation (BWF) after an unsuccessful December.

Minh dropped out of the world top ten just days before the opening of the 25th Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games) in Laos early last month. Number 2-seeded Minh failed to enter the semi-finals at SEA Games 25, undermining his efforts to keep his ranking.

The leading world badminton player is still Lee Chong Wei, from Malaysia. However, Minh will have a chance to improve his ranking when he attends the Korea Open championship in the Republic of Korea slated for January 12.

After enduring one of its worst years in history last season, the Indonesian Badminton Association is doing everything in its power to avoid a repeat in 2010.

Its approach is a familiar one, though, as the association, also known as the PBSI, plans to keep its national shuttlers in their training camp and hold them out of the Super Series opener, the Korea Open on Jan. 12-17.

Indonesia head coach Christian Hadinata said the shuttlers needed more time to recover after having only returned to training in Cipayung this week following their post-Southeast Asian Games break. Instead, the national team will make its season debut at the Malaysia Open on Jan. 19-24.
