“As always, they (Kevin and Marcus) are expected to win the championship. For me,
it’s a real challenge. However, this expectation should not burden the boys,” the official website of the Indonesian Badminton Association (PBS) quoted the coach who is colloquially known by his nickname “Herry IP".
This year, the men's double team have registered 4 pairs to participate in the World Championships. Besides Kevin and Marcus, Mohammad Ahsan and Hendra Setiawan will also try to win the championship for the third time.
Similar with the Kevin-Marcus and Ahsan-Hendra, Fajar Alfian and Muhammad Rian ardianto will start the tournament from the second leg. Unfortunately, Berry Angriawan and Hardianto will have to start the tournament from the first leg.
“Our expectation is that we will be able to become the champions of the tournament. I’m
always optimistic. We succeeded to win the last two major tournament. I, as their coach, must be optimistic,” said Herry IP. (Photo: Muhammad Gestinev)
