Malaysian Ladies' singles needs the push

If Indra Wijaya can do it with Lee Zii Jia, he can surely do the same to help the women’s singles players. However, the Indonesian-born coach will need some time with the current batch of shuttles.

Among the players under his charge are reigning Sea Games champion S. Kisona, two-time world junior champion Goh Jin Wei, Lee Ying Ying and Eoon Qi Xuan

Kisona was knocked out in the first round of the All England earlier this month. As a result, the BA of Malaysia (BAM) withdrew her from the Orleans Masters.

Ying Ying was also below par, crashing out in the first round of the Orleans Masters after losing 21-6, 21-9 to Iris Wang of the United States.

Jin Wei, who played in her first international tournament after 13 months out due to a stomach ailment, was Malaysia’s best performer, but she too crashed out in the quarter-finals in France.

Indra, who was pivotal in the development of All England champion Zii Jia, said he has yet to plan the tournament programme for the players.
