    I also hope he'll raise further! He's my favourite player - always keeps cool, never shows any frustration, would rather smile time and again, great sportsmanship, clever play, smooth movements - a quite complete player and a great idol for those who follow international badminton!

    Badminton : Indonesia's Simon Targets Medals at Olympics

    July 12, 2012

    Simon Santoso, who currently occupies the seventh seed in world badminton rankings, is determined to medal for Indonesia at the upcoming Olympic Games in London, and is comfortable with the growing weight on his shoulders as one of the country's gold hopefuls.

    “I wish to win the medals no matter what it takes,” he said after receiving a bonus worth Rp 85 million ($9,000) here on Wednesday for his recent (and record) win at the Indonesia Open Grand Prix Gold championship.

    Simon said he was at ease as one of Indonesia’s primary hopes for Olympic glory in the men’s single badminton event in the, even though this will be his first appearance at the games following his stellar world ranking.

    “I have to be ready to bear the responsibility,” he said.

    Simon also said he did not feel the pressure was a burden, but rather a motivating factor that will drive him harder. “This is my first participation in the Olympic Games and I will be the first men’s single player [from Indonesia], so I must be ready,” he said.

    Speaking about his preparations, Simon, who along with Taufik Hidayat will represent Indonesia in the men’s single event, said that he had stepped up his training in the run up to the games.

    Disease? You mean Simon is sick,not injured? Is it serious,anybody knows? Wish him speedy recovery if he's sick and come back to play badminton as soon as possible. Like this guy.

    That's sad to hear. After Taufik, Simon is my second favorite player to watch. Curiously though, with the AT900's being pulled from Yonex's range, I wonder what racket he'll use now.

    A VT80 possibly. Boe changed to VT80, SDK also use VT80 while he was using 900P during his top form
