Discussion in 'Indonesia Professional Players' started by copadh, Aug 17, 2008.
The 2009 All-England WS Champion will be MARIA KRISTIN OF INDONESIA
Let see her games on next ss.. Chn taipei n japan open.. If she is stable then i'm sure she is gonna be one of baddy stars.. Hopefully, she'll get more prestigious title such as AE n WC.. Go Maria.. U're best 4 us!!!
Any analysis regarding her nagging knee injury ? Will it be her achilles problem in her attempt to be a top, consistent, worldclass player ? Is she still developing and will still get better in the next few years as her young(er) competitors are getting better too ?
i was surprise she could kill tine tis time..even china players have to beware of her..i duno her so cant judge and compare her performance this time and last time..but i think she is ok in the game this time..
Maria Kristin Picture
Was this from the Olympics? Nice picture!
maria kristin,slow but sure
huuuhhmmm its been a while,,,
well lets forget about Zhang Ning,,,and move to maria,,,
uhm at first i dont like maria much,,because she is not good enuff..
but when indonesian super series held..those under dog tittle for maria has been gone!!!she really2 took the wheel...
and..in olimpyc maria still made a miracle,,,
she played with all high rank player (tine,nehwal,lu lan...excpt zhang) and she won it!!...
and she succesfully made china failed owning all woman single medals...
get closer with the humble MARIAAA:
She is now the national team's top notch, ranked 16. Her best performance is at satellite-ranked tournaments. She won the 2005 Jakarta and Surabaya Satellite Challenges, and the 2006 Surabaya and Singapore Satellite Challenges. She is currently ranked 21st as of August 7, 2008.
Yulianti played the 2007 BWF World Championships in women's singles. She was seeded #15 and was defeated in the third round by Zhang Ning, of China, 21-10, 21-9. In 14 December 2007 at SEA Games Thailand Maria Kristin help Indonesian Team won gold medal at women's team event. She also won the gold medal at an individual event in the women's single after creating an "All Indonesian Final". She defeated firda in straight sets 21-14, 21-14.
WELL...maybe maria isnt good as xie xinfang,but i believe someday maria will be great as xxf,,or greater????....just wait n c
hmmm alonzo, there is already a thread about maria here>> http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59429
hey mr,georgee,,,yaeh i knew..but ithink my topic is better than him,,, lol
its been a long long time since u post at bc..
btw, u using your phone now to post at bc??
yeah,,,it costs me much money...btw online at msn?
Yes it was from one of the posting recently. I just feel strange how come there is none whatsoever of Maria Kristin thread even after she won the bronze medal at this Olympic. Maybe we should use this thread to compile more info on her, more pictures, profiles, achievements, personal life etc as long as any info pertinent to her and badminton career. It will definitely be an inspiration. After watching her sudden surge of fame in this Olympics, my daughter who is a hard core fan of hers demanding me to send her to Djarum to get trained.....she has been looking at the PB Djarum website and felt in love with the school and its facilities. I hooe this is not "panas panas tahi ayam" phenomena. You know what i mean !
Look at those wrappings!
Mothers will not allow their daughters to play badminton if they see this!
I so proud to maria! She bring a hope for our woman shuttlers!!
Go go go!
Hope firda, pia, nana and others can take a new spirits and be a great woman shuttlers in this earth..
Thank you so much maria kristin..
There is a thread on Maria Kristin in the 'Olympics 2008' category... But yes, none in the 'Professional Players'... If you visit the PB Djarum website, there is a profile on Maria Kristin... Her hobbies, favorite food, favorite TV show etc...
After her performance in the olympics..shes become one of my favourite player
well she's a clever player, i just saw her playing in BO , but i don't like her attitude at the court, her stance makes me feel so itchy ...
Maria Kristin is Indonesia's 2008 Olympic real hero!!!
not MKido/HSetiawan i love them for winning us a gold medal. but they are expected too, they're ranked #1, seeded #1.
but Maria play well above expectation. winning bronze??? that's crazy, but not as crazy as beating Lu Lan, even dominating the second & third sets. proving that she's an adept tactical player. her tactic was not to give lob shots and press toward the body or Lu's left/backhand side.
hopefully with more physical training and international exposure, she can achieve more. (but i still fancy Firdasari over her actually
Thank you for the info. I will definitely check it out later. In fact the last time i surfed the website...i actually was impressed with the facilities....quite huge, clean, and well built to be an international class training center even located in Kudus.
Yup, maria kristin is a hero! Nobody expect her to get medal in OG, but she did it. She never give up in every match, even though her opposite have a high rank than her in BWF rank..
Thats a good lesson to other INA shuttlers, they must have a great attitude like Maria Kristin
