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.
