KUALA LUMPUR: National singles player Iskandar Zulkarnain Zainuddin has come to terms with his poor showing at the recent Kuala Lumpur Sea Games, and is ready to bounce back.

The 26-year-old explained that a few days of rest spent with his family after the biennial Games has helped him regain his strength and belief to continue playing for the country.

“During the few days off, I spent most of the time with my family and talking to my father.

“Then only did I come to the decision to stay with the national squad as I still have much to prove,” he said today.

Iskandar said national singles head coach Datuk Misbun Sidek did not blame any of the national singles players for the poor showing at KL2017.

“He said even if we lose 10 times, it is OK as long as we discuss together ways to overcome our weaknesses,” he said.

Iskandar added that he will be taking part in three competitions in Europe to regain his confidence.

“The competitions are in Belgium, Poland and the Czech Republic.

“My main goal is to restore my confidence and improve the weaknesses in my game,” he said.
