KUALA LUMPUR: Iskandar Zulkarnain Zainuddin (pic) is desperate to revive his flagging badminton career.

And what better place to get it right than at his most memorable tournament – the upgraded Perodua Malaysia Masters from Jan 16-21 at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur Sports City.

His career went downhill within 20 months since winning last year’s Masters in Penang.

He was touted as a player for the future but failed to live up to expectations with early exits in lower ranked European tournaments.

 His world ranking has also seen a drastic drop from No. 23 to No. 63.
