PETALING JAYA: It is hard to discard old habits but coach Rexy Mainaky wants the top doubles pair of Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong to stop the tendency to experiment with their game in what will be a defining year for them.
The duo, who are now ranked number one in the world, have a bright chance to end Malaysia's 12-year medal drought in the Olympics in Beijing in August. Having won seven international titles since they formed a combination in October 2006, Kien Keat-Boon Heong are seen as good bets to win the first Olympic gold medal for Malaysia.
I am more worried about the players' attitude. They can be stubborn at times« REXY MAINAKY
