    Taufik Hidayat knows that Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei are the 2 players most expected to win the 2012 Olympic Gold medal.

    IMHO, if Taufik can defeat one of them, then only will he have a 50% chance of winning the 2012 Olympic Gold medal. :):):)

    Hmm, so you give him 50/50 chance of beating them? I think that is generous considering taufik hasnt beat lin since 2005 and int the past three years LCW leads TH 8-1..... According to the WBF h2h.

    I said "If Taufik can defeat one of them, then only will he have a 50% chance of winning the 2012 Olympic Gold medal".

    What I meant was: As soon as Taufik can defeat one of them (either Lin Dan or Lee Chong Wei), he will be as good as the top 2 players in the world, therefore he will have a 50% chance of winning the 2012 Olympic Gold medal. :D:D:D

    Lee Chong Wei will struggle tomorrow because he is not going to smash a lot against Taufik...when you play against Taufik, trickshots wont work effectively against him.

    Taufik changed his racket for the India Open 2012. I saw it when he was facing LCW and was applying some grip powder o_O anyone know which racket ?

    Taufik Hidayat: I'm Tired
    Friday, May 25, 2012

    http://m.tribunnews.com/2012/05/25/taufik-hidayat-im-tired

    Excerpts, translated:

    "Seven times joined Thomas Cup was enough for me, now turn to the young ones to play. I'm tired," said Taufik Hidayat through his Twitter account.

    ...Taufik had apologized for the defeat. He also had time to write messages at once confide to his wife, Ami Gumelar. "Sorry I'm lose today .. but I'm ok .. I hope the other players not discouraged. This is the last Thomas Cup for me," said Taufik.

    Defeat in the Thomas Cup quarterfinal yesterday it felt suffocating. Taufik and his friends were receiving all kinds of criticism for the failure of the Thomas Cup this time. However, he hopes his fellow players can get up after the defeat.

    Taufik also had time to pour out his feelings. In the game of badminton is difficult to always win, sometimes lose and win.

    Pangalengan players from Bandung is now seven-time defending team Thomas Indonesia. From 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 and now he is always willing to look for the red and white.

    ...Taufik said was surprised because still elected to the Thomas Cup squad. Whereas before he had thought would not be elected again, because it called again, Taufik still participate. The next Thomas Cup, there must be regeneration of players to replace him.

    Taufik himself considered to be fully retired from badminton after convening the 2012 London Olympics.

    Poor Taufik! :( Sank without a trace at the IO PSS this year, beaten straight by a resurgent and inspired Sony.

    ...and GC added to his anguish by mis-identifying his wife! :D

    I really hope he can pull something special out of his bag at the OG.

    Taufik Hidayat on collision course with Lin Dan
    http://post.jagran.com/hidayat-on-collision-course-with-lin-dan-1343067902

    Posted on: 23 Jul 2012, 11:55 PM


    Excerpts:

    London: Taufik Hidayat, the former Olympic champion who is one of badminton's big four, could have an earlier than expected end to his famous career at the 2012 Games.

    ...Lin is regarded by many people as the greatest player of all time, and if the elastic left-hander lives up to that billing it could well bring curtains for Hidayat as early as Wednesday week (August 1st).

    ...This spectacular denouement though depends on the sometimes controversial 30-year-old from West Java adhering to his feeling that these Olympics are a suitable climax for calling it a day.

    Hidayat has repeated his statement that he will do that here, but he also recently said: "But I don't know. There are lots of things that I have to consider before making the decision."

    ...Hidayat was also reported to have said that he could not communicate with Lin Dan, prompting the Chinese legend to blame the media for "sowing discord" between them.

    Lin was nevertheless reported as saying: "We are not as friendly to each other as to other players."

    Hidayat may be paying a price over the next two weeks for injuries, lack of fitness, and variable form, which have caused him to slip from the world's top ten. That has made him vulnerable, with a seeding down at 11, to the disappointing draw he has landed...
