XD is interesting for me,pelatnas has 3 out of 4 in semi final.they are all "new" pair. only Tri Kusharyanto/Nadya Melati is not pelatnas. they will up against Wahyu Nayaka/Melvira Oklamona The other semi final is between Hafiz Faisal/Shella Devi vs Ronald Alexander/Maretha Dea Giovani
WD and MD are not different, 3 out of 4 are from pelatnas.
Melati Daeva Oktavianti/Rosyita Eka Putri Sari ( beat senior) vs Maretha Dea Giovani/Melvira Oklamona ( beat no 3 seed)
Nadya Melati/Siti Sarah vs Imma Mutiah Khairunnisa/Shella Devi Aulia ( beat no 2 seed)
Hardianto/Kevin Sanjaya Sukamulyo vs Ronald Alexander/Selvanus Geh
Christoper Rusdianto/Tri Kusumawardhana vs Ade Yusuf Santoso/Wahyu Nayaka Arya Pangkaryanira
Hardianto/Kevin beat the more experienced pair Rian Sukmawan/Rendra Wijaya, 21-15, 20-22, 21-15 in R3
Looks like they are all on fire!!!
Let see if they can make All-Pelatnas final today afternoon.
WS is not that interesting since it is only a 16-draw. Hanna Ramadini will face Ganis Nur Ramadhani, if I recall correctly, both were Junior Champion in Kejurnas. in the top half, Russely Hartawan will meet Sylvinna Kurniawan.
I was about to post the result involving Hardianto/Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo. I actually prefer this senior-junior combo as Hardianto is more matured than Rafiddias Akhdan Nugroho. Rafi/Arya actualy lost easily to Hardianto/Kevin in the QF!
For AJC/WJC, I think we have no choice but to partner Kevin with Rafi. For senior tourneys, this experiment proves that Hardianto can click with an excellent playmaker. Let's see how his partnership with Agripinna works out.
Maybe it's just me, but I think Hafiz Faisal is probably more suited to XD than MD. He showed good results with Pia last year and had been partnering Shella Devi Aulia in the junior days. We also await if Richard wants to continue the partnership.
Ade Yusuf/Wahyu Nayaka also prove to be more reliable than Ronald Alexander/Selvanus Geh. I expect Ronald and Selvanus to be split.
In BD U-19, only scratch pairings from PB Djarum took part. Tedi Supriadi is temporarily paired with Vicky Rizky Pratama (who is this boy?) and lost to Krishna Adi Nugraha/Richard Kuncoro in the SF. The Jakarta Open will be more competitive.
