Kevin/Rafi will be competing in both the Candra Wijaya MD Championships (still in U-19) and INA SSP Qualifying Round.
Can they do a hattrick of winning the title in CWMDC 2012? As for the INA SSP, a rubber-set will suffice for me in their first match at SSP level (albeit in qualifying).
After that, Kevin will be training in Pelatnas and get acquainted with Alfian Eko Prasetya for the AJC campaign. A tall order for Kevin and a modest target of QF (equalling last year's WJC result) will probably suffice for me.

Have see Kevin at Kejurnas Riau, very tricky at court.

He's considered to be the most tricky of all of the young BD players in PB Djarum. And I believe he's the most talented as well, esp his net coverage.

When he practice at my club court during Kejurnas, he bring his racket to shop for strung his racket. He asking 32 lbs, then i ask him "are you sure you can handle 32 lbs ?", he don't answer me. But next day when he came practice again "he came to shop and said "Yes, I can". He also bring also his racket for restring again. Very humble player.

Kevin won a match yesterday. Anyone has a complete database on all SS events? I think he could be the youngest player to win a match in qualification of SS event. Too bad he could not qualify.

Raffi is younger than Kevin I think
06-13-2012, 04:25 AM #27
Yes, Rafi is younger than Kevin.

Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo is now ranked no 1 in the BWF Junior Ranking.
He will still be paired with Rafiddias Akhdan Nugroho for the 3 upcoming tourneys next month:
Malaysia International Youth U-19 2012
Flypower Indonesia Junior International Series 2012
Indonesia Open GPG 2012
It's also time for Rafi to improve on his junior ranking (now at WR 69)! 3 tourneys and 10k pts should be sufficient for him to be ranked in the top 10.

End of year summary for Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo (with his partner Rafiddias Akhdan Nugroho):
International tourneys (5) - W11 L5
Djarum Indonesia Super Series Premier 2012 - Q2 (lost to Ronald Alexander/Selvanus Geh)
Tangkas Specs Junior Challenge Open 2012 - RUNNER-UP (lost to Hafiz Faisal/Putra Eka Rhoma)
Maybank Malaysia Youth International 2012 - QF (lost to Edi Subaktiar/Arya Maulana Aldiartama)
Indonesia Open GPG 2012 - R32 (lost to Ronald Alexander/Selvanus Geh)
BWF WJC 2012 (Individual Event) - R16 (lost to Kim Jae Hwan/Kim Jung Ho -- they wasted 1 match pt!)
In addition, Kevin also reached the SF of AJC 2013 with Alfian Eko Prasetya - losing to Wang Chi Lin/Wu Hsiao Lin.
Domestic tourneys (5) - W21 L1
Djarum Sirnas Flypower Jakarta Open 2012 - WINNER
Djarum Sirnas Flypower SGS PLN Jabar 2012 - WINNER
Candra Wijaya Men's Doubles Championships 2012 - WINNER
Kejurnas PBSI Perorangan Taruna 2012 - WINNER
Pertamina Open Badminton Championships 2012 - QF (lost to Ellen Frederika S./Fajar Alfian in 3-sets -- surprisingly)
I am relatively pleased with Kevin/Rafi's record this year...losing mostly to their seniors and only had 1 surprising domestic defeat last week at the Pertamina Open. I also expected them to beat the Korean pair at the WJC, only for them to lose agonizingly despite having match pt. And of course, they will be INA's no 1 MD pair for AJC and WJC 2013, unless they are split as I don't foresee any other pair surpassing their achievement domestically.
As usual, I believe PB Djarum will send Kevin/Rafi to the German and Dutch Juniors 2013 as well as the Banuinvest International 2013 in Feb/Mar 2013 to prepare them for AJC 2013. In addition, they will also be expected to compete in domestic tourneys and international tourneys held in Indonesia such as Sirnas Jakarta, Bandung, CWMDC, Tangkas Specs Junior, Indonesia GPG, and maybe Indonesia IC (if there's no time conflict with AJC).
I really hope Kevin can end his junior year in 2013 with at least 1 important title!

Time to update this thread
Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo has now won a GP title in the Sky City New Zealand Open GP 2014 with his new partner Selvanus Geh. It has been a dream transition to the senior tourney with 2 titles in 2 tourneys for this promising young pair.
I do believe that they have the ability to go far and hopefully they can start to play in SS tourneys starting next year. This year, the focus will be more in IC/GP/GPG tourneys and the list will include:
Jul - Yonex Open Chinese Taipei GPG
Aug - Indonesia IC
Sep - Yonex-Sunrise Vietnam Open GP & Indonesia Open GPG
Nov - Bahrain or Malaysia IC & Korea Open GP (TBC)
Dec - Bangladesh & India IC
That will make it 10 tourneys for them this year, with 5 IC, 3 GP, and 2 GPG.

Just about to start a thread of Kevin/Selvanus.
I am glad Selvanus have found a good partner. Although he seemed to do well with Alfian too. Winning a title on their debut but they are only paired once.
These 2 players are good individually. I saw their quarter final NZ open match from live streaming. They are playing against Australian pair that they beat in final of their first IC title. From the score, this second encounter looked to be closer. I did not watch that first encounter. From the NZ matches, Kevin and Selvanus were good in attack but still need to improve their placing, especially against tall players.
I think at the moment, they should be about as good as any PBSI pairs, except for Ahsan/Hendra. With experience, they can be better because they are younger.
Too bad there is no tournament for them between now and July. I think they will be entered in June Indonesia Premier SS but with only 9000 ranking points, it will be difficult for them to be even in the qualifying list.
