PETALING JAYA: Singles chief coach Rashid Sidek will have his hands full taking charge of the Malaysian shuttlers in the Swiss Open as Misbun Sidek has returned home to be with his ailing wife.

The wife, Latifah, is currently in hospital and may be required to undergo further treatment for kidney malfunction. And Misbun opted not to make the trip to Basel and he has handed the task to guide his top charge, Lee Chong Wei, to his youngest brother.

“Rashid is also familiar with Chong Wei. It’s also good for Chong Wei to learn how to handle himself,” said Misbun, who returned yesterday. Top seed Chong Wei is the only Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) representative following the failure of Kuan Beng Hong to reach the main draw from the qualifying tournament on Tuesday.

Rashid already has to keep an eye on the three doubles pairs — Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Mohd Zakry Latif and Chin Eei Hui-Wong Pei Tty.

Doubles chief coach Rexy Mainaky was unable to be with his charges in Basel as he did not meet a new visa requirement to enter Switzerland.
