For Thomas Cup, it is the best squad. All 3 MD pairs should get a chance to be played and gain ranking points to help to go to Olympic. But the best of all is Kidho/Hendra is rank third so they will be playing against the second MD opponents which is easier.
However, the worry is whether the injured players can play their best. So I think it was rather a mistake to put Hayom in.
For WD, also the best possible squad. Of course, Vita/Nadya will lose their chance to gain points but if they put both Vita/Nadya, then there is no place for Butet which is even worse.
The worry is the same, whether the injured will be able to recover in time.

I heard, vita felt dissapointed for not chosen to be member of uber team.. She said the reason given by PBSI is not logical:
Not sure enough, but at first, PBSI wants to include Vita in uber team. But ONLY vita, not nadya. Vita cannot accepted it, so then she refused.. She wants to join uber team, not only for herself, but also for nadya. And she feels more comfortable with nadya, her current partner.
With this decision come up, I don't think vita/nadya could gain more points for olympics..

for injuries that happened to our team, I think some of them are able to recover..
from the last news I got, ahsan's condition is getting better. He's finally starts training now. He used traditional treatment, 'Bekam'.
Not sure for nitya and hayom (?)
But since PBSI include them in uber team, I think they're able to recover ...

Badminton: Squads Named as Indonesia Looks to End Drought
Ami Afriatni | January 24, 2012
Vita Marissa’s withdrawal was the only surprise as the Indonesian Badminton Association announced the teams for the Thomas Cup and Uber Cup on Tuesday.
The association, known as the PBSI, picked the country’s top players for the biennial world team championship’s Asian zone qualifying rounds in Macau from Feb. 13-19. The finals will take place from May 20-27 in Wuhan, China.
Men’s doubles specialist Bona Septano and women’s singles player Bellatrix Manuputty are the only shuttlers making their debut in the event.
“These are the best shuttlers we have right now,” PBSI secretary general Yacob Rusdianto said at the Cipayung training facility in East Jakarta on Tuesday. “We firmly believe the teams will qualify for the finals in China.”
The top five men’s teams in the qualifiers will go to the Thomas Cup finals, while the top four women’s teams will qualify for the Uber Cup finals.
In a potentially risky decision, the PBSI called up several players who are battling injuries.
Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka (leg), Mohammad Ahsan (arm), Greysia Polii (shoulder) and Nitya Krishinda Maheswari (hip) now have just over two weeks to overcome their injuries and get ready for the event.
“There’s still time for them to be back at their best because they started training again last week,” Yacob said.
Women’s doubles veteran Vita, who also missed out on the 2010 Uber Cup because of injury, said she had decided to withdraw from the team.
“It was because my current doubles partner, Nadya Melati, was not included on the team. Instead, [the PBSI] wanted to pair me with Liliyana [Natsir],” the 31-year-old shuttler said. “I had a good partnership with [Liliyana], but it was long ago.
“I asked the PBSI to call up Nadya but they refused. So I thought that it would be better for the team if I withdrew.”

Thomas & Uber Cup: RI team faces extra challenge in preliminary round
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Wed, 01/25/2012 10:36 AM
Indonesia’s road to the Thomas and Uber Cup badminton tournaments will be rocky, not only because of a string of injuries among its top shuttlers but also because of the presence of defending Thomas Cup champion China in the preliminary round.
Usually, as host and defending champion, a country will not compete in the preliminary rounds. South Korea, the defending champion of the Uber Cup, will not be competing in the preliminaries.
But China has decided to take part in the Thomas and Uber Cup Asian zone preliminary round on Feb. 14-19 in Macau.
The decision has sparked reactions from many countries, including Indonesia. The Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) said that it had questioned China’s decision with the Badminton World Federation (BWF).
“We’ve asked the BWF over China’s attendance [in preliminary round], because as host it automatically qualifies for the final rounds,” PBSI general-secretary Yacob Rusdianto said on Tuesday, as quoted by Antara news agency.
“The BWF said that China’s decision did not violate any article in the federation’s regulations. China has decided to let go of its privilege and has chosen to take part in the preliminary round both in the Thomas and Uber Cup events.”
China, the strongest team in badminton, reportedly wants to partake in the preliminaries to amass more points for the upcoming Olympics in London in July-August.
With a string of injuries among half-a-dozen of its top players, Indonesia still listed injured players in the Thomas and Uber Cup team announced on Tuesday, including men’s singles Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka, men’s doubles M. Ahsan, and women’s doubles Nitya Krishinda Maheswari.
The Thomas and Uber Cup tournament will be held on May 20-27 in Wuhan, China.
According to the Badminton Asia Confederation (BAC), the Asian zone preliminary in Macau will feature 14 countries, including host China.
The preliminary round will come up with the top four for the Thomas Cup, excluding defending champion China, and the top three for the Uber Cup, excluding host China and defending champion South Korea.
Yacob said that China’s presence in the preliminaries would not affect seats up for grabs in the final round because China, as host and defending champion of the Thomas Cup, had automatically secured its spot in the finals.
“What if China fails in the preliminary, will the country still earn the right to be in the finals round? It would be strange to not have the host in the finals. That’s our next question to the BWF if such a thing happens,” he added.
In terms of injured shuttlers, Yacob said that Ahsan, Hayom and Nitya had joined the training program.
“So far, they’ve started the training. We have a few more weeks ahead to continue the program. We even decided to cancel a simulation tournament [for the Thomas and Uber Cups] because of their recovery, which is far more important. Now, they are fatigue-free,” he added.
Team Indonesia is scheduled to fly to Macau on Feb. 9 in order to acclimatize to the local conditions before the preliminary round.

I'd say Bona/Ahsan as 1st single and Kido/Hendra setiawan as 2nd double in this tournament?

For another combination, Ahsan/Alvent is good (impressed with their perform at SEA Games last year) but sadly Ahsan is still overcome his injury... Hopefully Ahsan can back to good perform soon, in my opinion he is a young player who has talent..

agree, kido/hendra is good.. but, what happen to kido lately??
Of course, he has killer smash, but his unforced errors is just... err, what should I say?.. killing himself more?
