THE more, the merrier. That was the positive reaction from national singles coach Misbun Sidek on the inclusion of former world champion Hendrawan in the coaching set-up.

Indonesian Hendrawan, the 2001 world champion, will start his duty as Malaysia’s singles coach on Wednesday.

Hendrawan, Misbun and women’s singles coach Teh Seu Bock are all under the charge of national singles chief coach Rashid Sidek.

Misbun said he would leave it to Rashid to decide on the players to be put under the charge of Hendrawan.

“For now, there has not been any discussion on that. But I am willing to accept any decision,” said Misbun.

“Hendrawan’s presence will be good for us. In fact, it will be good for some of our players to be trained by him. They will then be exposed to a different style of coaching.

“I will work with Hendrawan because, ultimately, our goal is to groom good players who can bring glory to the country.”

Misbun is likely to continue coaching Lee Chong Wei and Wong Mew Choo while Hendrawan is expected to take over the training of Mohd Hafiz Hashim and Kuan Beng Hong.

Several back-up players are also expected to be trained by Hendrawan.

On his return to coaching after being away for almost two months, Misbun said: “I was feeling quite nervous when I watched Chong Wei play (against Kenichi Tago of Japan on Friday). It has been quite a while since I last felt such excitement ...

“But I am glad to be back. I will pick up the pace with Chong Wei after this tournament. We will be fully focused on getting him in top shape for the World Championships (to be held in Hyderabad, India, from Aug 10-16).”
