HOW brave are the Malaysian coaches? That’s what Indonesian Rexy Mainaky intends to find out when at the Sudirman Cup takes off at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil this Sunday.

Rexy said it would take a brave coach to go with world No. 15 Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem in the mixed team competition, which will be held from May 19-26.

Two weeks ago, Khim Wah-V Shem achieved a breakthrough when they beat Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong for the first time in the final to win their first international title as a pair at the Malaysian Open Grand Prix Gold at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara.

But Rexy was quick to point out that he’s not questioning the credibility of the Malaysian coaches.

“Khim Wah-V Shem achieved a breakthrough and proved themselves, but are the coaches ready to field them instead of their top pairs in matches that matter?” he asked.

Malaysia’s top three pairs are world No. 2 Kien Keat-Boon Heong, world No. 7 Tan Wee Kiong-Hoon Thien How and Khim Wah-V Shem.

As for Indonesia, Rexy said they would be banking on one of these two pairs – reigning Malaysian Open champions Mohd Ahsan-Hendra Setiawan and Angga Pratama-Rian Agung Saputra.

Malaysia are in Group C with Germany and Taiwan while Indonesia are in Group A with top seeds and defending champions China and India.
