    - Tim Piala Thomas Indonesia kemungkinan besar tidak akan diperkuat oleh Nova Widianto. Pemain spesialis ganda campuran itu mengaku sudah tidak sanggup lagi.

    Rencana tidak turut sertanya Nova dalam ajang yang akan digelar di Jakarta 11-18 Mei mendatang itu terungkap saat sang pemain mengaku dirinya tidak ikut dalam rombongan tim yang akan bertolak ke Batam untuk melakukan simulasi, Jumat (28/3/2008)

    "Oh nggak, saya nggak ikut simulasi karena saya nggak ikut (tim Piala) Thomas," ujar Nova kepada detiksport di sela-sela latihan di Cipayung, Kamis (27/3).

    Karena di Piala Thomas tidak ada nomor ganda campuran, Nova kemungkinan akan bermain di ganda putra. Namun Nova beralasan bahwa dirinya tidak siap karena merasa dirinya tidak akan mampu mencapai hasil terbaik di nomor yang bukan spesialisasinya.

    "Saya sudah lama sekali, tahunan, nggak main di ganda putra. Jadi saya nggak siap. Biar Chandra (Wijaya) sama Flandy (Limpele) saja," imbuh pemain berusia 30 tahun itu.

    Bila nanti namanya tetap masuk dalam lineup Piala Thomas, Nova tetap menyatakan keengganannya bergabung. "Nggaklah, saya nggak mampu," kata Nova singkat.

    Saat dikonfirmasi kepada Christian Hadinata, Ketua Sub Bidang Pelatnas PB PBSI itu belum bisa memastikan ketidakhadiran pemain kelahiran Klaten tersebut.

    "Semua pemain masih nominasi. Jadi belum bisa diputuskan. Penentuan pemain yang akan masuk dalam tim Thomas dan Uber nantinya didasarkan pada peringkat terakhir BWF setelah Kejuaraan Asia di pertengahan April," pungkas Christian.


    We're gonna miss one of the best shows...

    ah, so he thinks his MD skills are not up to the mark eh?
    i guess that's fair, candra and flandy are already there to back up MK/HS and LH/AY, so nova probably won't be needed anyway.
