    ..from what i've read in this forum, Nova's last appearance will be after the AG this yr...but then, knowing the INA squad habit of calling their veteran players back to help the national team, who knows, we might still see him compete til next yr..

    Nova Widianto is only playing with Liliyana Natsir in selected SS-level tourneys (4 SS already this year) plus the World Championships and Asian Games. Meanwhile, Liliyana will be partnered with Tantowi Ahmad in GP Gold and hopefully some SS tourneys till end of this year.

    tantowi/lilyana will face the LYD/LHJ in the QF. The Olympic champion not in their best perform yet but i it won't be easy for the indonesian i think. would be a good test for tanto & lily to become the world class XD in the future. hopefully they can pass the test well

    For that, we just have to wait and see. But I will think Liliyana Natsir will certainly have to move on as the Olympics qualifying period is next year.

    Nova can stay and guide the younger players (like what Flandy did for quite some time) before he eventually left Pelatnas.

    I know tantowi will be doing good internationally after i saw him played the first time in surabaya.He is just outclassed the other pelatnas pairs.Hopefully natsir will do her best with him.Just felt that natsir made so many unforced errors in the past couple of matches when she was still pairing with nova..

    About time too, they should have been paired together much earlier to sort out the understanding between them. Would have been in a much stronger position had they played together since last year or early this year.

    Its only less than 2 yrs away, i say its the perfect timing for the new pairing. Tantowi is very powerful, more powerful than Nova. Now i can rest my head and say: BRING ON CHN PAIR.........!!!
