Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo
I think this young boy (turning 16 next week) deserves a thread of his own now.
As many INA fans have observed since last year, Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo is going to be another talented MD player in years to come. He already has some impressive results in domestic circuits for his tender age of 16. In fact, he will turn 16 in a few days time and if he can win this first international title, it will be a BIG BIRTHDAY PRESENT for young Kevin! Singapore has been a good hunting ground for him too. He and his former partner Arya Maulana Aldiartama also reached the Final of the Singapore Youth International 2010, losing to the Jaya Raya pair Hafiz Faizal/Putra Eka Rhoma (yet another young talent in MD). He also won 3 medals: Gold, Silver, and Bronze at the ASEAN School Games also held in Singapore just last month. His Gold Medal was in XD and he partnered Felix Kinalsal for the Silver Medal in MD.
I heard that Kevin is the most "crafty" or "licik" player out of the many BD pairs under the care of Sigit Budiarto. He has many tricks up his sleeves in terms of troubling and frustrating his opponents. The problem is now to find a suitable partner for him to compete in AJC & WJC next year as Lukhi may not be eligible.

Too bad, Kevin did not win the title as he and Lukhi lost to the more experienced Agripinna Primarahmanto Putera/Marcus Fernaldi Gideon.
Never mind, more training and once Kevin competes in the Adult category (which I think should happen this year), he will gain more experience in playing against his seniors (just like he did playing against his U-19 seniors).

Typo in one of the result should be:
QF of BWF World Junior Championships 2011 (lost to Nelson Heg Wei Keat/Teo Ｅe Yi [3/4] 17-21, 19-21)

I also forgot to include the 2 earlier results with Lukhi in Sirnas Bengkulu & Indocock-SPECS Walikota Surabaya Cup 2011.
Total record with Lukhi Apri Nugroho in 2011 (W24 L9):

Yes, he is indeed very impressive, he has a lot of trick shot as well. Another value added point is that he did not get nervous easily. I have watched his action in live a few years a go..He is indeed a talented BD. I hope Djarum could find a suitable partner for him...

yesterday, i watched him play against the cirebon's pair (PB Arena)....
one thing that i watched closely is about how Kevin can read the opponent's game play really well..
he tried to remember the opponents habit in returning every shot.
the winning point is one of the result, one of cirebon player is very bad in service return, kevin know where the shot will be placed and he runs even almost before the opponent made the return shot and then "bang", he made an early shot in front the net to kill the shuttle.
nothing to say more, find him the best smasher and he will be the next INA MD Hero if he also keep his good attitude !

i don't know much about this pair,but having read at your thread this pair is awesome,,cant wait for the further achievements
05-27-2012, 08:35 PM #16
I just cannot help but think what will the outcome be if Jones Ralfy Jansen is paired with Kevin, instead of Jones going to Europe. Jones is a hard-smasher and he did relatively ok with Dandi 2 years ago in AJC (winning a Bronze). Too bad, we lost yet another talent in him....sigh.

i feel so sad also when he chose to go to germany
i always think that he may be one of the most talented baseline player we have right now....
but never mind, we have so many good MD talents....
i still think that for next year AJC/WJC, so far, raffi is the right partner for kevin...
let see how they fare against the much more senior pair in open/dewasa category...
no need to play in U-19 anymore... it will be good also for raffi to learn more.... it will also excel their progress faster....
one good thing, with felix kinalsal, kevin/felix never beat hafiz/putra, but with raffi, kevin beat hafiz/putra easily....
