KUALA LUMPUR, July 1 -- National singles coach Hendrawan Sugianto has not set his target during his two-year contract with the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) but instead wants the players under his tutelage to sight what they aim for.

Hendrawan, 37, who took charge of the junior squad Wednesday, said he needed at least two weeks before he could make any changes to the training programme of the second liners.

"I am willing to discuss with the players if they have any problems as I have got to have good relations with them," he told reporters after putting the players through their paces at the Juara Stadium here today.

Hendrawan, who was 2001 World's singles champion, said he would not concentrate only on top-notch players like Tan Chun Seang, Mohd Arif Abdul Latif, Chong Wei Feng and Liew Daren but also other players under the BAM.

"Malaysian juniors are not much different from Indonesian juniors and coaches play an important role in raising their spirit," he said.

Hendrawan said he wanted the players to focus on training for the first three months before thinking about participation in championships.

BAM general manager Kenny Goh said the association would give all the support needed by Hendrawan in shaping up the junior squad.

"We know of Hendrawan's credibility and he is an asset to BAM in moulding the youngsters to become complete players," he told Bernama.

Hendrawan also won the silver in the 2000 Sydney Olympics and helped Indonesia lifted the Thomas Cup in 1998, 2000 and 2002.
