Maybank Malaysia International Youth U19 Badminton Championships 2012
Plenty of INA representatives from the various clubs in all disciplines. Notably though, none from Pelatnas (such as Vito, Gifar, and Panji)
The seedings are however a little strange. How can Edi Subaktiar/Melati Daeva Oktaviani and Rian Swastedian/Masita Mahmudin in XD be seeded lower than Aldo Abdillah/Desaula Gendy, when in fact these 2 pairs are the top ranked U-19 pairs in INA?
Similarly in GD， how can Melati Daeva Oktaviani/Rosyita Putri Eka Sari be seeded lower than Lya Ersalita/Ruselly Hartawan?
Ditto in BD how can Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo/Rafiddias Akhdan Nugroho, Hafiz Faisal/Putra Eka Rhoma，Rian Swastedian/R. Eka Fajar Kusuma be seededlower than Mohd Rian Ardianto/Clinton Hendrik Kudamassa (who's practically unranked in PBSI's own ranking）?
Competition will be tough in all disciplines with the host, KOR, HKG, THA all sending their top junior players.
BS THA - Khosit Phetpradab, Sitthikhom Thamassin, Pannawit Thongnuam
MAS - Soong Joo Ven, Soo Teck Zhi, Chong Yee Han, Cheam June Wei, Lim Chi Wing
INA - Thomi Azizan Mahbub, Kho Henrikho Wibowo, Ihsan Maulana Mustofa
HKG - Ng Ka Long
KOR - Heo Kwang Hee, Jeon Hyuk Jin, Jung Jae Wook, Choi Sol Kyu
GS INA - Ruselly Hartawan, Lya Ersalita
MAS - Lim Yin Fun, Ho Yen Mei, Lee Zii Yii, Kisona Selvaduray Yap Rui Chen
SIN - Liang Xiaoyu
HKG - Cheung Ying Mei
KOR - Kim Hyo Min, Lee Min Ji, Lee Sun Min, Bae Ji Won,
The first round was played today. 6 out of 9 INA BS players, 1 out of 2 pairs in XD and 3 out of 5 pairs in BD advance to R32.
Kho Henrikho Wibowo  vs Lim Chi Wing - I hope the 3 INA BS players (Thomi Azizan, Kho Henrikho, and Ihsan Maulona) can at least advance to R16.
Ihsan Maulona Mustofa  vs Lee Zii Jia.
Chan Ren Cong vs Thomi Azizan Mahbub 
The other 3 players are drawn against seeded and experienced junior players like Sitthikhom Thammasin , Pannawit Thongnuam , and Soong Joo Ven , so I believe they will lose.
GS R32 Lee Tong Xin vs Russely Hartawan  - the sole INA GS player left is expected to progress.
Edi Subaktiar/Arya Maulana Aldiartama  vs Lee Jian Yi/Woon Mun Choon - a tricky first tie for the reigning AJC champion.
Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo/Rafiddias Akhdan Nugroho  vs Ahmad Maziri Mazlan/Nik Ahmad Azfar Nik Mazlan - Kevin/Rafi are scheduled to meet Edi/Arya again in the QF. What a pity.
Yantoni Edy Saputra/Tedi Supriadi  vs Su Meng Soon/Wong Yew Haw - as for Yantoni/Tedy, a tough match against Lee Chun Hei/Ng Ka Long  will be the highlight for them this week, if they can clear the first two matches.
R. Eka Fajar Kusuma/Rian Swastedian vs Choi Sol Kyu/Park Se Woong - it will be a good result if Eka/Rian can beat the Korean pair.
Heo Kwang Hee/Jung Jae Wook vs Ayodo Lutfi Amroyni/Mukti Rahman Sutrisno - the Korean pair to win this too.
Dede Ryan Philip/Marcel Simon vs Muhd Rian Ardianto/Clinton Hendrik Kudamassa  - despite being the 4th seed, Rian/Clinton are really not that well-known in the INA junior circuit.
Tan Zi Jian/Leslie Teng Pang Liang vs Hafiz Faisal/Putra Eka Rhoma  - a warm-up match for Hafiz/Putra.
Aldo Abdillah Harsono/Muhd Alfian Firsada Terna Sangaji vs Eizlan Shah Misfahul/Tan Kiang Meng - the INA pair to prevail.
Worachard Kertsripan/Siriwut Kitjakarndetwut vs Hantoro/Arsya Isnanu Ardi Putra  - also a tricky match for the second-seed who just won the Indian Junior title last week.
Ni Ketut Mahadewi/Ila Alvionitasari Putri vs Eng Pui Yee/Thinaah Muralitharan - INA should have 2 reps in GD R16.
Aldo Abdillah Harsono/Desaula Gendy  vs Calvin Ong Jia Hong/Chin Kah Mun - I hope the top seed can win their first match.
Yodhi Satrio/Ni Ketut Mahadewi vs Lee Jian Yi/Payee Lim Peiy Yee - ditto for Yodhi/Ni Ketut.
Rian Swastedian/Masita Mahmudin vs Chua Keh Yeap/Peck Yen Wei  - not sure if Rian/Masita can beat the second-seed.
The only surprise today was Kho Henrikho Wibowo's loss to Lim Chi Wing and Ayodo Lutfi Amroyni/Mukti Rahman Sutrisno's victory over the Korean pair.
Soo Teck Zhi  vs Ihsan Maulana Mustofa  - Ihsan at least fulfills his seeding. I don't think he can beat the MAS player.
Chong Yee Han  vs Thomi Azizan Mahbub  - I hope Thomi can be INA's sole rep in the BS QF.
GS R16 Lee Ying Ying vs Ruselly Hartawan  - ditto for Ruselly.
Edi Subaktiar/Arya Maulana Aldiartama  vs Jeon Hyun Jin/Seo Seung Jae - a tricky tie as always against any KOR pair.
Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo/Rafiddias Akhdan Nugroho  vs Chen Jia Huo/Goh Sze Fei- Kevin/Rafi to progress.
Yantoni Edy Saputra/Tedi Supriadi  vs Phuttaporn Bowornwatanuwong/Matee Vejjanugraha - ditto for Yantoni/Tedi who's only 15/16 this year and will have 3/2 more years in junior tourneys. They will be one of INA's top U-19 BD pair in 2014 (if they can continue their relatively good form).
Ayoda Lutfi Amroyni/Mukti Rahman Sutrisno vs Tai An Khang/Tan Wee Gieen  - the MAS pair to advance.
Kim Jae Hwan/Kim Jung Ho vs Hafiz Faisal/Putra Eka Rhoma  - the Tangkas-Specs Junior champion to progress in this tricky match.
Aldo Abdillah Harsono/Muhd Alfian Firsada Terna Sangaji vs Hantoro/Arsya Isnanu Ardi Putra - Hantoro/Arsya to challenge Hafiz/Putra in the QF yet again.
Lya Ersalita/Ruselly Hartawan  vs Rawimon Iamratanamaetheekul/Natcha Saengchote- a tricky first tie for the INA GD pair. It wouldn't be easy for them to fulfill their seeding.
Ni Ketut Mahadewi/Ila Alvionita Sari vs Deline Quek Chun Yi/Ninna Tan Ai - the INA pair to advance.
Aldo Abdillah Harsono/Desaula Gendy  vs Muhd Aliff Nurizwan/Yap Zhen - the top-seed to progress to QF.
Yodhi Satrio/Ni Ketut Mahadewi vs Chua Kek Wei/Joyce Choong Wai Chi - not sure about this, hopefully INA can have 2 reps in XD QF.
All matches went as predicted, except for 1 XD match (Yodhi Satrio/Ni Ketut Mahadewi).
BS QF Thomi Azizan Mahbub  vs Sitthikom Thammasin  - Thomi fulfills his seeding but it will be very tough for him to beat Sitthikom.
Lee Min Ji vs Ruselly Hartawan  - it will be a very good result if Ruselly progresses to the SF.
BD QF Edi Subaktiar/Arya Maulana Aldiartama  vs Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo/Rafiddias Akhdan Nugroho  - a rematch of the Tangkas Specs Indonesia Junior SF. Too bad the 2 INA pairs have to meet early. Kevin/Rafi to prevail again.
Yantoni Edy Saputra/Tedi Supriadi  vs Lee Chun Hei/Ng Ka Long  - despite being seeded, Yantoni/Tedi should lose to the more experienced HKG pair, who has been INA BD pair's arch rival this year.
Hafiz Faisal/Putra Eka Rhoma  vs Hantoro/Arsya Isnanu Ardi Putra  - also a rematch of the Tangkas Specs SF. Hafiz/Putra are more experienced and should beat Hantoro/Arsya yet again.
Lya Ersalita/Ruselly Hartawan  vs Pornpawee Chochuwong/Alisa Sapniti - the INA pair to fulfill their seeding.
Ni Ketut Mahadewi/Ila Alvionitasari Putri vs Cheah Yee See/Chin Kah Mun - the home pair to prevail.
Aldo Abdillah Harsono/Desaula Gendy  vs Dechapol Puavaranukroh/Puttita Supajirakul - I hope there will still be an INA rep in XD SF.
