Misbun’s son Ramdan has the makings of future star.
By RAJES PAUL
What’s in a name, you ask? A lot if your name is Misbun Ramdan Mohmed Misbun.
Yes, the second child of former national badminton singles ace and current national coach Misbun Sidek has a lot to prove to live up to his famous father’s expectations.
But, if all goes according to plan, Misbun Ramdan could well be the country’s next big men’s singles star, something Malaysia is badly in need of.
Except for world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei and a handful of back-up players, the country is scrapping the barrel as far as the men’s singles stars are concerned.
Misbun Ramdan. who will turn 18 on March 16, has shown that he has the potential to make it big.
Yesterday, in a short sparring session with his father at Stadium Juara in Bukit Kiara, the youngster showed good badminton skills. His deft touches, fiery pace and tricky shots brought back fond memories of the playing days of the famous Sidek brothers — Misbun, Jalani, Razif and Rashid.
Standing almost as tall as his father at 184cm, Misbun Ramdan has won several junior titles since taking up badminton seriously when he was in Form 1.
In 2007, he won the Selangor Closed Under-15 title and the Under-18 winner of the Selangor Sports Council and District School Sports Council tournaments.
Misbun Ramdan knows it’s time for him to live up to his father’s name.
“It was not easy at the beginning for me. With my name came a lot of expectations. Usually, there are gasps of disbelief whenever my name is mentioned,” said Misbun Ramdan.
“I took badminton seriously when I was in Form 1. Before that, it was more of following my dad and just having fun. Now, I want to make my dad proud of me.
“I hope to continue with my family’s tradition by doing well in badminton.”
