    Yao Jie is playing with injury and Zhou Mi probably has no more staminas after playing tight rubber against HHY the day before. Still a nice win for Maria though.
    Hopefully she can add Zhang Ning to her list of scalps for this tourney.

    No doubt Maria is doing great. But I would be careful about the "earthquake" statement. It is equivalent to calling another "tsunami" in Indonesia.

    Maria's success is overdue. It is not too far fetched to say that she has a chance against Zhang Ning.

    All she needs is to believe in herself, and extend the rallies longer .......

    She did played well. But her opponents is having injury and stamina problems. I hope she will do well against ZN and take advantage of the crowd support.

    Maria Kristin has reached her target to enter semifinal spot in this tourney. It's an uphill task to overcome a very experience player with good achievement like Zhang Ning but anything is still possible. Head-to-head record based on BWF website : Zhang Ning - Maria Kristin -- 1 : 0, Maria lost to Zhang Ning at R/16 World Championship 2007, 10-21 ; 9-21.

    I think Maria has ability and good skill. Main problem of Indonesia gals is they always feel inferior than Chinese players. Susi Susanti successed to change their mind set that nothing is impossible, altough China still unbeatable in Uber Cup. However, now they can boost up self motivation to win.

    Another think, Indonesian gals always think that they are number two, comparing with Indonesian men's players, and support either from PBSI and Indonesian supporter itself were not full. Based on Uber Cup performance, and see the recent condition, PBSI more attention with gals players, and see the bigger opportunity than men's players. Indonesian supporters also give full support now to Indonesian players. They are happy to see good and fighting performance from the gals. I really hope they can maintain their high spirit and make other good result in tournaments. I think in Indonesia SS, they have proved it. I believe one day Indonesian gals will wake up from their long sleep....

    Pelatnas Setup:
    Marleve Mainaky handles the WS dept. And before that, Hendrawan. Hendrawan is now in charge of Sony Dwi Kuncoro and Simon Santoso. Mulyo Handoyo handles Taufik Hidayat.

    In the MD, Sigit Pamungkas and Herry IP are the coaches. In the WD and XD, Aryono Minarat, Richard Mainaky and Yanty Kusmiati are the coaches.

    As for Fang Kaixiang, he's in charge of the Djarum squad (MS and WS I believe). Denny Kantono and Antonius are in charge of the doubles.
