    Markis and Hendra are always quiet and serious, especially Markis. So serious when playing. I like to see Markis power smash. Lots of such players in badminton academy. Short but explosive.

    Given that it's the home event, they WILL DEFINITELY have to compete in the Indonesia Open 2007.

    Berlatih Menggunakan Bola "Kura-Kura"
    Written by Kompas
    Thursday, 19 July 2007
    Jakarta, kompas - Berbeda dengan dua ganda lainnya, Luluk Hadiyanto/Alvent Yulianto dan Joko Riyadi/Hendra AG, Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan tidak tampil dalam turnamen Filipina Terbuka yang berlangsung 17-22 Juli. Mereka lebih difokuskan untuk tampil dalam Kejuaraan Dunia, 13-19 Agustus, di Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

    "Kami memang akan lebih disiapkan untuk main di Kejuaraan Dunia," komentar Kido, Rabu (18/7), yang pekan lalu bertanding di kejuaraan China Masters dan lolos hingga ke final.

    Dalam turnamen tersebut, Kido/Hendra kalah di final dari ganda asal tuan rumah, Fu Haifeng/Cai Yun, lawan yang dikalahkan mereka saat menjuarai China Terbuka 2006.

    Untuk Kejuaraan Dunia nanti, Kido mengatakan, program latihan dia dan Hendra akan lebih fokus untuk meningkatkan kekuatan. Hal ini dilakukan untuk mengantisipasi laju shuttlecock yang lambat yang biasanya digunakan di Malaysia.

    "Di Malaysia, shuttlecock yang digunakan biasanya berat, jadi power kami harus ditambah, selain pertahanan juga harus kuat. Supaya biasa bermain dengan shuttlecock yang lambat, saat latihan, ujung shuttlecock-nya ditekuk dulu," kata Kido.

    Tahun lalu, Kido/Hendra menjadi sorotan para pesaingnya saat meraih gelar dari dua kejuaraan dalam waktu sebulan, yaitu Hongkong dan China Terbuka. Akan tetapi, setelah itu, baru di China Masters, pekan lalu, Kido/Hendra bisa kembali tampil di partai final.

    Selain Fu/Cai, Kido menyebutkan, Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong dan Candra Wijaya/Tony Gunawan adalah lawan terberat yang akan dihadapi di Malaysia nanti. "Luluk/Alvent juga sudah main bagus lagi," kata Kido, yang mengalahkan seniornya itu di semifinal China Masters.

    Adapun untuk Kejuaraan Dunia, penampilan Kido/Hendra tahun ini akan menjadi yang kedua setelah tahun lalu bermain di Madrid, Spanyol. Saat itu Kido/Hendra tersingkir di perempat final, kalah dari Anthony Clark/Robert Blair (Inggris).

    Secara keseluruhan, Indonesia gagal mendapat satu gelar pun seperti yang terjadi di Kejuaraan Dunia 1999 dan 2003.

    Training with "Turtle" shuttlecock
    Written by Kompas
    Thursday, 19 July 2007
    Jakarta, kompas -Different with the other 2 doubles pairs, Luluk Hadiyanto & Alvent Yulianto and Joko Riyadi & Hendra AG, Markis Kido & Hendra Setiawan did not attend the Philippines Open which was held on July 17-22. Instead they are focusing on the upcoming World Championships, August 13-19, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
    "We are indeed being prepared to play in the World Championships", remarked Kido, on Wednesday (07/18), who competed last weekend in the China Masters and advanced to the Final.
    In that tournament, Kido & Hendra lost in the Final against the host's MD pair, Fu Haifeng/Cai Yun, the opponents whom they defeated when they won the 2006 China Open.
    For the upcoming World Championships, Kido stated, the training program he and Hendra take will focus on strength. This matter is being worked on to anticipate the "slower" speed of the shuttlecock, which is usually the case in Malaysia.
    "In Malaysia, the shuttelcock is usually heavier/slower, so our strength must be increased, beside having a strong defense. In order for us to play with a heavier shuttlecock, during training, the shuttlecock feathers' tips are being bent(out)", added Kido.
    Last yr, Kido/Hendra became a main focus from their competitors after winning titles in 2 tournaments in only a month, which were the HongKong and China Open. But it wasn't until in China Masters, last weekend, where Kido and Hendra were able to reach the Finals.
    Besides Fu & Cai, Kido said, Koo Kien Keat & Tan Boon Heong and Candra Wijaya & Tony Gunawan are the toughest opponents which he'll face in Malaysia. "Luluk and Alvent have also played better", added Kido, who defeated his seniors in the semifinals of China Masters.
    On top of the World Championships, Kido & Hendra's appearance this yr will be their second time after attending last yr in Madrid, Spain. At that time Kido & Hendra were eliminated in the Quarter Final, losing against Anthony Clark & Robert Blair (England).
    Overall, Indonesia failed to win even 1 title just like what happened in the 1999 and 2003 World Championships.
    *Boy, i can imagine, that must be some real slow birdies being hit.:eek::p

    Yes they did! Great job. I did believe that they are capable of becoming World Champion, I just did not expect that they would achieve it in just two years!

    Congrats

    I think his birthday is tomorrow. Yes, I do hope they can maintain this for the future. The WC title is the great present for Kido and Hendra's birthday.
    Go Kido and go Hendra !!!!

    Congrats to Kido-Setiawan for getting the world title!! (even though they beat my fav player in the process, actually in the final) It's great that they finally get a world title for Indonesia!! I agree with you, aaron, they might be able to beat KKK-TBh now!! And I LOVE Kido's smashes too!!
    The picture of the China Masters is actually quite funny, even though CY-FHF were standing a step lower than the Indonesians, Markis is still shorter than them!!
