Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia's second men's singles, Chong Wei Feng was handed a danger filled path at the 2014 World Championships in Copenhagen. He plays his first round match against England’s Rajiv Ouseph, India's rising star Kidambi Srikanth in second round, and if he survives both matches, he would face Chen Long of China in third round.

"I have a tough draw at the 2014 world meet, that's why I need Rashid to be on my side from the start," said Wei Feng.

"Rashid has been coaching me for a long time, he knows how do I feel in practice, how is my motivation, how am I actually really playing."

Two weeks ago, Rashid was sidelined by Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) following a public feud with BAM president Tengku Mahaleel Tengku Ariff over the poor performances of Choong Wei Feng and Liew Daren at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games. But after receiving overwhelming support from the media, government officials, and the public, Rashid was later reinstated for the World Championships squad.

Including Rashid Sidek, Malaysia are sending three men's singles coaches - Rashid, Seu Bock and Hendrawan to Copenhagen.

 


"I would like Rashid to be on the sidelines when I am playing, but that has yet to be determined," answered Wei Feng. 

"I am looking forward to the challenge, and hope to play Chen Long in the third round and see how I would fare against him," Wei Feng said when asked about his chances of advancing in Copenhagen.
