After the match, former world number one Lee Chong Wei praised the performance of Iskandar and hoped Iskandar would continue to make improvement on the court.

“Iskandar had a very good 2015. However, I hope he remains enthusiastic in training to progress further. I think he knows what he wants, and he has shown strong determination.”

“Coaches can only help the player up to 20% to 30% only, it’s all up to the player if they want to achieve more. I suggest Iskandar should try to push himself to the limit for greater success.”
