Anyone got any info about this pair??

Anymore info?? Oh, and, isit Fran or Frans??

Fran! Just check the BWF website... Ha ha ha...

I think we have had this discussion before. His passport and official ID said he is Fran. But his friends call him Frans. And during his domestic playing days when he was younger, many Indonesian tournament officials just put his name as Frans because that's what people call him.

Both Sigit and Fran are originally from PB Djarum before they entered the National PBSI team. Sigit was a Djarum singles player in Kudus since he was 13 or something. Fran joined Djarum as a doubles player when he was 15 or 16.

They did not quit from PBSI, just quit the PBSI National team. PB Djarum want to retain these good players as Indonesians rather than see their talent being squandered by the currently-cash-strapped National team ...resulting in talents moving to another country and thus bring badminton glory to some other country.

1st tournament: 2007 German Open. Lost in the semifinals to Lee Yong Dae-Jung Jae Sung [world #3 pair]. Rubber sets, I remember.
2nd tournament: 2007 All England. Lost in the first round to KKK-TBH [the eventual champ].
3rd tournament: 2007 Osaka Challenge. This happened over last weekend. Lost to Japan's #2 pair in the semifinals. Now this last result is a dissapointment...

There was an article about this pair in Bola last week. You can access it in www.bulutangkis.com (http://www.bulutangkis.com)

Other note: Sigit was from Sleman, Yogyakarta. Fran was from Palembang, South Sumatra.

Yeah, I don't really understand it. Quit PBSI national team? Explain it to us Krisna, will ya?

OMG. I've already told him why I cropped that pic. *kill.. Cuz I wanted people to guess who is Frans.. don't make me more embarrassed..

Btw, who is that guy behind the both of them?

Krisna
04-12-2007, 11:32 AM
PBSI [Persatuan Bulutangkis Seluruh Indonesia] is the national badminton governing body of Indonesia. ALL Indonesian badminton players who represent Indonesia are members of PBSI. You can only quit PBSI if you are not playing for Indonesia anymore like Albertus Nyoto-Johan Hadikusuma who play for Hong Kong. I think they at least have Hong Kong resident status. Anyway, another indicator is that their t-shirt said Hong Kong.

Within PBSI, there are different types of PBSI players:
1. PBSI National Team [Pelatnas] players; only around 60 athletes. The PBSI headquarters pay for their training expense, travelling expense etc.
2. PBSI Players who are not members of the National Team; [supposedly] around 500,000 players are registered through their clubs. Kimpe-bultang, if your name is registered in PB Tangkas, then you are one of this type. Should you want to enter any tournament then you can either cover the expenses yourself or let your club PB Tangkas pay for your expenses.

Both type 1. and 2. are Indonesian PBSI members who can represent Indonesia in international tournaments. Chandra Wijaya, Eng Hian, Rian Sukmawan, Fran, Sigit, etc. are type 2. Their t-shirt said that they are from Indonesia but they are not part of the PBSI National Team.

Please visit the new PBSI website www.pb-pbsi.net (http://www.pb-pbsi.net/) and you can see in ranking list http://www.pb-pbsi.net/rankGpa.asp?PId=1 that Fran and Sigit are number 10. You can see that they are both members of Djarum club [DJM]. But not a member of the National team like Luluk Hadianto [DJM*]. The asterix sign * are there to indicate which players are part of the National Team. ;)

Oh, if you notice, PBSI recognized Fran as Frans. While BWF [who actually checks people passports] recognize him as Fran... :p http://www.internationalbadminton.org/mensdoubles.asp?Fname1=&Fname2=&Name1=&Name2=&txtId1=&txtId2=&txtPId=&cboNAC=INA&Submit=Submit
This new website still have a lot of wrong data to be verified... :D

Here is a picture of Sigit and Fran from the 2007 Osaka Challenge. You can get more photos from Osaka here: http://www.u-netsurf.ne.jp/nichiba/2007/osakaic/index.htm

New news from a newspaper yesterday: Fran, Sigit, and Chandra are invited to Bandung [the capital of West Java] to be the sparring partners of the Indonesian Sudirman Cup team who are training there. PBSI considers them the most capable players around who are not members of the National Team. In the simulation, they shall act as though they are 'players from another country'... :D

Pembentukan Tim Piala Sudirman
PBSI Gelar SimulasiOleh adminKamis, 12-April-2007, 21:32:2833 klikhttp://www.bulutangkis.com/images/friend.gif (http://www.bulutangkis.com/friend.php?op=FriendSend&artid=1801)http://www.bulutangkis.com/images/print.gif (http://www.bulutangkis.com/mod.php?mod=publisher&op=printarticle&artid=1801)JAKARTA (Pos Kota) - Guna membentuk tim inti Piala Sudirman yang akan tampil di Glasgow, Skotlandia, 10-17 Juni 2007,PB PBSI (Pengurus Besar Persatuan Bulutangkis Seluruh Indonesia) akan mengadakan simulasi, Sabtu (21/4), di Bandung.JAKARTA (Pos Kota) - Guna membentuk tim inti Piala Sudirman yang akan tampil di Glasgow, Skotlandia, 10-17 Juni 2007,PB PBSI (Pengurus Besar Persatuan Bulutangkis Seluruh Indonesia) akan mengadakan simulasi, Sabtu (21/4), di Bandung.

Simulasi ini mempertemukan tim Harimau dengan Rajawali dan memperebutkan hadiah uang sebesar Rp 50 juta. Manajer Tim Piala Sudirman Lutfi Hamid menjelaskan pemberian hadiah uang sebesar Rp 50 juta itu untuk merangsang pemain tampil sungguh-sungguh. ''Kami menyediakan hadiah uang sebesar Rp 50 juta hanya untuk menambah motivasi pemain yang bertanding,'' ujar Lutfi Hamid, Kamis (12/4) di Jakarta.

Selain itu khusus untuk sektor ganda PB PBSI akan memanggil ganda Chandra Wijaya/Sigit Budiarto dan Frans Kurniawan yang sudah keluar dari pelatnas untuk diadu dengan tim bayangan Piala Sudirman. ''Kita memanggil pemain ganda yang di luar pelatnas untuk menambah tekanan terhadap sektor ganda kita,'' katanya.

TARGET JUARA

Mengenai targetnya di Piala Sudirman, kata mantan pengurus Pengda PBSI Jawa Barat ini tentunya meraih gelar juara. ''Kami siap merebut lambang supremasi beregu campuran itu dari China. Ini sesuai dengan amanat dari Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono yang menginginkan kita merebut juara saat berkunjung ke pelatnas di Cipayung, belum lama ini,'' ujarnya.

Tim inti harus sudah terbentuk pada awal Mei karena pada tanggal 10 Mei 2007 sudah harus didaftarkan ke pihak panitia. Setelah simulasi di Bandung, terang Lutfi, akan diadakan lagi di Kepulauan Kepri, menghadapi tim Piala Sudirman Malaysia. ''Kami akan saling mengambil keuntungan dalam uji coba ini. Malaysia kini cukup kuat di sektor putri. Untuk ganda jangan ditanya lagi,'' katanya.

Tim bayangan
Putra :
Taufik Hidayat, Sony Dwi Kuncoro, Simon Santoso, Tommy Sugiarto, Markis Kido, Hendra Setiawan, Luluk Hadianyanto, Alvent Yulianto, Joko Riyadi, Hendra Aprida Gunawan, Yoga Ukikasah, Yonathan Suryatama Dasuki, Nova Widianto, Flandy Limpele, Muhammad Rijal, dan Lingga.

Putri :
Adriyanti Firdasari, Maria Kristin, Francisca Ratnasari, Pia Zebaidah, Jo Novita, Greysia Polii, Lita Nurlita, Nathalia Poluakan, Rani Mundiasti, Endang Nursugianti, Nadya Melati, Nitya Krishinda, Liliyana Natsir dan Vita Marisa.

Hahahaha. She's scarier than the spider I killed yesterday. :D Now always talking about you-know-who 24/7. Vomit!

Anyway, Frans Kurniawan/Sigit Budiarto will kick off SIN SS with a match against Malaysia's youngsters Chan Peng Soon/Chang Hun Ping. There will be no big surprise if they meet Shen Ye/He Hanbin in Q1 Qualification Final. The winners of that match are going to face Rian Sukmawan/Eng Hian. Huhuhuhu.. How cruel.. :mad:

Krisna
04-18-2007, 02:41 AM
And after Fran-Sigit vs. Rian-Eng Hian, the winner get KKK-TBH... Gonna be a tough match, for either pair ...but if the Malaysian pair are still out of shape and out of focus like last week in the Asian Championship, then either one of the INA pair can beat them.

I know, I meant that if its Frans/Sigit, its not good enough to be a sparring partner, that's why Candra comes in.. Anyway, Candra/Sigit is a much better doubles player.... Good choice... Then, what happen to Tony?? LOL..

05-03-2007, 03:52 AM
Hey, ppl.. Ok, so I saw Sigit and Fran coming to the hall in SLIPPERS (no other players came with that, all ready in shoes), and even worse, Sigit was wearing 3/4 pants... Haaaiz.. Embarrasing the Indo ppl...
Then, they went to take their rackets, and went to sit... Looked so relax.. After like, 20 mins or so, they started to warm up... Still playing and making a fool.. I was watching Adriyanti Firdasari's match, then suddenly, got this loud laughter... Guess what.. It came from Sigit... -_-"

then they went down to court to play... I tried to video taped it, but got caught by the guards... They asked me to put my camera in the locker, so I only got a short video... they were playing their second match, then the m'sia plyr gave Fran a high shot... Fran was ready to smash it, he jumped... But, suddenly sigit shouted something like, "OUT TUH!!", means it's out, and Fran was like trying to dodge from the shuttle.. Damn funny!! You all should see it...
Then, the 3rd match was also great.... Sigit did a lot of his deception shots, and the m'sia plyrs were quite mixed up... The incredible part was when they got a long rally, Sigit/Fran was defending and m'sia plyrs attacking, smash again and again... In the end, one of the m'sian hit to the net...

another long rally was Fran/sigit attacking... They jumpsmashed like more than 10 times, when in the end, Sigit ended it with jumping, but giving a drop... It was so cool.... T_T Too bad din get it in the video....Waaaah :( :(

im wondering why Candra chose Tony instead of Sigit?

kimpe_bultang
05-16-2007, 05:29 AM
Tony, he's better than Sigit.. They are both very skillful.. However, they are 2 diff kin of guys.. Sigit, he needs a suitable partner, if not, he won't make it, and cnt play properly.. Whereas Tony, he change himself to SUIT his partner... See the case of Tony/Howard, Howard is not a good plyr, but they can be the AE champ... Weird, eh?
Fran, he gotta reduce all the mistakes, he's good, but sometimes acts recklessly...

And Sigit, hahahaha, it all lies on Fran, if Fran could brush up his mistakes, they can be a very good doubles.. Like drg the Aviva, Fran really made a lot of mistakes, until Sigit shook his head.. LMAO!! Sigit has nvr gone anywhere.. LOL.. Still the same old same old..

LOL.. I SMSed him a few days ago...
Jessica (J) : Mas Sigit, how come lose again??
Sigit (S) : Yaah, I'm getting older... Ha ha ha ha ha ha...
J : Walaaah, don't joke.. Serious!! Maybe change partner??
S : Not joking.. Ok, with who?? Jessi, you want??
J : Me??!! Hahahahaha, can try.. Maybe we can beat Ko Candra playing with his daughter, Nia.. Play XD..
S : Sure, why not...

Hmm... djarum's players are mostly from other clubs... Djarum's ppl usually go to a quite good club ard Indonesia, then brg the good ones to their club.. And, Fang Kai Xiang comes from Tangkas.. Haaaiizzz... They should really change that attitude... Using money to solve evrything..

Hmm... djarum's players are mostly from other clubs... Djarum's ppl usually go to a quite good club ard Indonesia, then brg the good ones to their club.. And, Fang Kai Xiang comes from Tangkas.. Haaaiizzz...

Fang Kaixiang?!? Fang polished his skills in the Chinese badminton system. After he retired as a player, then he offered his services as a coach, Tangkas hired him. After a while he moved back to China, now Djarum hired him.

It is true that the common practice of all the big clubs is to recruit players when they are around 11-15 years old. Then train them some more until they become top players. This common practice actually benefit the players most. That's why most players love to move to a bigger club... And most of the small clubs think about their player's future and support their move to the bigger clubs.

Susi Susanti, for example, was from a small club in her hometown of Tasikmalaya... knowing that a bigger club can give her more options and progress, she moved to Jaya Raya [when she was 12? 14? I forgot]. Sigit Budiarto moved from a small club near Yogya then moved to a slightly bigger club in Solo then moved to Djarum [when he was 11? 13?]. Yonathan Suryatama moved to Djarum straight from a Jember club when he was 9 years old [this fact I know for sure because Yoke told me so]. Simon Santoso was brought by Tangkas from Sinar Mutiara [Tegal] when he was 14? 15? I forgot...

If Susi had stayed with her club in Tasikmalaya, then she won't be coached by the top coaches and won't be funded to play in the important tournaments [that are usually far from Tasikmalaya]. Same thing with Sigit [if he had stayed in Yogya] , Yoke [if he had stayed in Jember], and Simon [if he had stayed in Tegal]...

Sometimes, players also move from one big club to another when they are older. Rudy Hartono moved from Suryanaga to Jaya Raya. Tangkas brought Hermawan Susanto and Hendrawan from Djarum when they were older. Budi Santoso and Anastasya Emaya was recruited from Djarum by Mutiara when they were in their 20s.

Joko Supriyanto grew up in Solo and then moved. The Mainaky brothers Richard-Reony-Rexy-Marleve-Karel Mainaky were originally from Ternate/Ambon [I forgot exactly where], then they moved to bigger clubs...

Most recently, if I'm not mistaken, Ratih Banten hired Ahmad Rivai from Jaya Raya. Ratih tried to get Bellaetrix too, but failed for some reason...

Fran-Sigit will probably appear tomorrow on the first day of Superliga Badminton.

Possible tough opponents in the coming days:
Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan from Jaya Raya
Flandy Limpele-Hendra AG from SGS Elektrik
Albertus Njoto-Yohan Hadikusumo who plays for Tangkas this time. Originally they were trained by Djarum, just like Fran-Sigit, but have moved to Hong Kong and this week hired by Tangkas.

The number of foreigners participating in this tournament suggest that Indonesian clubs do offer them a lot of money. $ "cha-ching" time $ :D

Wang Chen, Yip Pui Yin, Albertus Njoto, Yohan Hadikusumo by Tangkas $$$$
Chen Hong, Ng Wei, Petya, Wang Lili by Suryanaga $$$$
Aoyama Takamasa, Ikeda Yuichi by Ratih $$
Ronald Susilo, Kendrick Lee by Jaya Raya $$
Roslin Hafiz, Hendri K. S. by SGS Elektrik $$
Lee Tsuen Seng, Hu Yun by Musica $$
Pai Min Jie by Mutiara $

Indonesian clubs are a competitive bunch eh? Willing to spend so much $$$$money$$$$ for club glory? Cool!

Hey, if it takes money to get the interest and the competitive spirit in Indonesian badminton going, then so be it! $pend $pend $pend!

Fran did not play today at the Indonesian Superliga Badminton. However, Sigit did! Rian-Sigit [Djarum] won 25-23, 21-14 over Ade Lukas-Hadi Saputra [Musica Champions].

Sigit didn't look relaxed today. Keep getting angry at himself... :p Anyway, in the end he won. He looked tense, for some reason. Maybe girlfriend problem?!? :p I'm just kidding...

Seriously funny, tough question!!! Honestly, all 3 of them considered goodlooking, but none of them outstanding. Oh Well, if me.. Uhm, I think I will go for the one with weird eyebrow. No surprise, right? Hahaha

Krisna
06-22-2007, 02:19 PM
Chinese face reading says that someone with one scar-like line on the eyebrow will face one big setback in his life... But other than that, I think Rian's eyebrows signal that he is a honest balanced talented man.

Btw, I wonder where Tangkas got all that money from. . . They don't have any sponsor anymore... Weeeew... and 4 players.. That's a lot.. All come from Hongkong somemore...

Krisna, the Mainaky brothers are from what club?? I know Rexy-Richard's from Tangkas.. The others??

Krisna, the Mainaky brothers are from what club?? I know Rexy-Richard's from Tangkas.. The others??

There is an article in Indopos newspaper on Tangkas getting tons of sponsors. A total of 6! Some are not familiar to me, but the noticeable ones on their current shirts are:
Hyundai -drive safely-; that's what it said... :p
Alfa-mart
Top 1 oil
Bank BTN
I don't remember the other 2 sponsors...

I think after Tangkas got all this money, they used it to bring the four Hong Kong players, plus hired Tommy Sugiarto from PB. Pelita. They are serious in using money to cover their weak areas. I appreciate that they made the right moves, so far. Makes the competition tougher for everybody! :cool: Tough competition is what made Indonesian badminton tough!

Tangkas have done many good hiring moves in the past. Hiring Hendrawan and Hermawan Susanto from Djarum; that time, permanently moved them from their original childhood club. Later on, those 2 guys became tough rivals to their own old club-mates, Ardy, Haryanto Arbi, etc. And I forgot which club in Manado Lili Natsir came from and which club in Jogja Nova Widianto came from. I think Flandy Limpele and Lili Natsir was from the same club, but Flandy was hired by SGS Elektrik a long time ago...

Marleve Mainaky followed his brother from Ambon/Ternate to Tangkas. Karel Mainaky went to Djarum. I don't know where Reony Mainaky went. The brothers Ferry Gunawan and Tony Gunawan was from a Surabaya club, then Ferry went to Djarum, Tony went to Jaya Raya. Indra-Candra-Rendra-Sandra Wijaya all went to Jaya Raya from a Cirebon club.

Oh, I just asked Susi Susanti yesterday night... her old club's name was Tunas Inti Tasikmalaya; all her family trained there. It is closed now due to financial difficulties, if she had stayed there, the club could not have propelled her to be a world class players. Susy moved permanently to Jaya Raya when she was 14, she said. :)

06-23-2007, 03:01 PM
Sigit, Rian, and Yoke doesn't seem to be dating anyone... At least, it is not apparent like Fran and his pretty girlfriend [she looks like a good-natured person too].

Looks like they're just concentrating on badminton for now. Good for them...

Krisna
06-23-2007, 03:03 PM
Fran-Sigit lost in rubber games today to Alven-Trikus of Suryanaga. Tough loss... in the last game, Sigit and Fran lost 5 quick points in a row due to quick unforced errors [mainly service returns]... unlucky day for them. If this match is repeated in the playoff round, I think their luck should change...

Their loss made the Djarum loss to be 1-4, instead of the predicted 2-3.

06-24-2007, 04:50 AM
My coach said that Tangkas mainly gets the money from the oner's fam,ily.. Dunno if it's true.. And, he also said that, Tommy HAS moved to Tangkas.. Like Icuk, he was in Tangkas before, but moved.. I'm not really sure abt all this.. Even Mulyo moved to SGS, eh?? He was thrown out of Djarum, and Taufik brought him in to SGS...
Btw, I saw Sandrawati Wijaya, playing for Mutiara Bandung.. This made me confused.. Is she in Mutiara?? http://www.superligabadminton.com/superligaputri/sputri=mutiarabandung.html
Check it here... :D :D

Krisna
06-24-2007, 12:10 PM
According to Hendrawan and Koh Juniarto [one of the Tangkas owner], Tommy is still on loan from Pelita at this moment... I suppose they would not lie about something like that... However, I would not be surprised if Tangkas then hired Tommy Sugiarto permanently. It depends on the price tag Icuk put for his kid.

And yes, Tangkas' main finances came from the owners, the Suhardinata family. Just like Djarum from the Hartono family, Jaya Raya from the Ciputra family, Mutiara from a consortium of textile manufacturers in Bandung, etc. etc...

Additional income from additional sponsors are always welcomed, of course, ha ha ha... Oh, today I just noticed one more sponsor of Tangkas: Hagger... I don't know what that is...

Fran-Sigit vs. Flandy-Taufik?!? 50%-50% chance for both. Ha ha ha... Taufik is a good MD player and he is used to play with old-clubmate Flandy...

Sigit was very calm today. Not a lot of speculation. Fran also calmed down and enjoyed the game flow... Candra did not play badly either. Very high quality match. After the game, Candra was very gracious too... Cool champs!

Sang Juara Ingin BangkitOleh adminMinggu, 15-Juli-2007, 11:40:29221 klikhttp://www.bulutangkis.com/images/friend.gif (http://www.bulutangkis.com/friend.php?op=FriendSend&artid=2446)http://www.bulutangkis.com/images/print.gif (http://www.bulutangkis.com/mod.php?mod=publisher&op=printarticle&artid=2446)Ketika Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong merebut medali emas di Asian Games Doha 2006, mungkin belum banyak yang memperkirakan ganda Malaysia ini akan menjadi pasangan yang sangat berbahaya.

Barulah ketika keduanya menjuarai turnamen besar Malaysia Super Series, Swiss Terbuka, dan All England Super Series, orang mulai yakin bahwa gelar juara di Doha bukan sekadar kebetulan.

Sayangnya, setelah itu prestasi mereka justru menurun. Bahkan sang pelatih asal Indonesia, Rexy Mainaky, sempat jengkel dibuatnya. Setelah sekitar empat bulan paceklik gelar, ganda nomor dua dunia ini diharapkan bisa kembali berjaya pada turnamen Filipina Terbuka di Manila, 17-22 Juli. Kebetulan mereka menjadi unggulan teratas di sana.

Lawan terberat diperkirakan datang dari unggulan kedua asal Indonesia/AS, Candra Wijaya/Tony Gunawan. Mereka juga mewaspadai ganda klub Djarum, Sigit Budiarto/Fran Kurniawan, dan pasangan pelatnas, Joko Riyadi/Hendra Gunawan.

''Latihan kami baik-baik saja. Pelatih telah menghabiskan banyak waktu bersama kami, terutama untuk meningkatkan kondisi fisik. Kami tak ikut Thailand Terbuka dan China Masters. Target kami adalah bermain baik di Filipina Terbuka,'' ujar Kien Keat seperti dirilis The Star.

Lee Lagi

Sementara itu di tunggal Malaysia mengandalkan Lee Chong Wei untuk merebut gelar di Filipina. Di sana, juara Indonesia Super Series itu ditempatkan sebagai unggulan kedua setelah Chen Hong asal Cina, yang kini tampil atas nama pribadi. Lee diharapkan bisa mengulang suksesnya di Jakarta, Mei silam, terutama bila kembali bertemu lawan yang sama di final Indonesia Super Series, Bao Chunlai dari Cina.

Lawan berat lain buat Lee adalah andalan Indonesia, Taufik Hidayat, Sony Dwi Kuncoro, dan Simon Santoso, serta Lee Hyun-il dari Korsel. Selain Lee, Malaysia juga mengandalkan pengantin baru, Moh. Hafiz Hashim dan abangnya, Moh. Roslin Hashim, Wong Choong Hann, Yeoh Kay Bin, dan Kuan Beng Hong. (yuk/bolanews.com)

Tony, he's better than Sigit.. They are both very skillful.. However, they are 2 diff kin of guys.. Sigit, he needs a suitable partner, if not, he won't make it, and cnt play properly.. Whereas Tony, he change himself to SUIT his partner... See the case of Tony/Howard, Howard is not a good plyr, but they can be the AE champ... Weird, eh?
Fran, he gotta reduce all the mistakes, he's good, but sometimes acts recklessly...

And Sigit, hahahaha, it all lies on Fran, if Fran could brush up his mistakes, they can be a very good doubles.. Like drg the Aviva, Fran really made a lot of mistakes, until Sigit shook his head.. LMAO!! Sigit has nvr gone anywhere.. LOL.. Still the same old same old..

LOL.. I SMSed him a few days ago...
Jessica (J) : Mas Sigit, how come lose again??
Sigit (S) : Yaah, I'm getting older... Ha ha ha ha ha ha...
J : Walaaah, don't joke.. Serious!! Maybe change partner??
S : Not joking.. Ok, with who?? Jessi, you want??
J : Me??!! Hahahahaha, can try.. Maybe we can beat Ko Candra playing with his daughter, Nia.. Play XD..
S : Sure, why not...
