Bow, a London Olympics silver-medalist and former World No. 1 doubles player, coached Indian doubles players including Satviksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty before the Tokyo Olympics.

“We were very interested in getting Tan Kim Hare and also got the approval of SAI and the ministry but then he refused to accept the offer. So he is not coming now, ”Badminton Association of India (BAI) secretary general Sanjay Mishra told PTI.

“We are currently in talks with Matthias Boy. He has experience in coaching our players and has done well with Sattvik and Chirag. Nothing has been finalized yet but we are trying to get his services at least till the Asian Games.

Boye wanted to continue coaching Indian doubles players after the Tokyo Olympics but not on a full-time basis, which was not acceptable to the federation.

BAI then received ministry approval to appoint Tan Kim Har for five years until the 2026 Asian Games but the Malaysian refused to return to the second term for personal reasons.

Under Boye’s direction, Satvik and Chirag won two of their group three matches at the Tokyo Olympics but failed to advance to the knockout stages due to a dramatic three-way tie for the two qualifying spots, which decided to win and lose the game.

Satvik and Chirag are currently in Mumbai for a week-long training session with Boy to correct the flaws in their game that have affected their performance over the past few months. “We played well but despite being in a good position we lost some intimate games. We haven’t been able to identify where we’re going wrong, “said Satvik.

“So since Bo is here, we thought of using the opportunity to train with him a week before the Asian Championships. The thing with him is that he is very good at analyzing the game and telling us how to make mistakes. Hopefully this will help us in ABC and Thomas Cup. ”

Although the post of BAI doubles coach is close to being sealed, it will take some time for the Indian men’s singles coach to fill the post, which fell vacant following the sudden departure of Agus D’Santoso of Indonesia in November last year.

“This is an important year where big events are lined up, so hard to find someone because most coaches are not very keen to change this turn. But we are in the process and hopefully we will get a good coach for the singles players, “said Mishra.

Mishra, a former India junior coach, said the emphasis would now be on empowering Indian coaches.

“I think from now on the emphasis will be on hiring more Indian coaches, empowering them, paying foreign employers equal pay. It is important for the development of the country’s sports arena. “

Last December, BAI extended the contract of coaching staff, including Dui Christianawan of Indonesia, for big-ticket events such as the Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games.

Kristiawan, who was brought in in 2011, Muhammad Miftak, Harry Setiawan, Ade Kourniawan and Esca Rifan Jaya, who assisted the players in the game, were extended until September 30 this year.
