    Default Money for Indonesian world and asian champs

    yesterday, pbsi, represented by sutiyoso gave away Rp 900.000.000,00, thats around 90,000 bucks, 28,000 for taufik, 21,350 for nova and butet, 10,000 for sony, 11,000 for markis and hendra, mulyo handoyo got 8,400 , richard mainaky got 6,405 , joko 3,000, and finally christian hadinata got 3,300

    sutiyoso said (well, pretty much like this, sorry if there are some mistakes) :
    "Badminton is Indonesia's #1 sport, only badminton which athletes frequently invited and welcomed in istana negara, this is the only sport that can make "bendera merah putih" and "Indonesia Raya" being presented at the most prestigious stadiums, " and some other things

    This past Sunday Roger Federer won the US Open and got US$1.1 million!

    I hope that someday soon badminton players can win big money like tennis players!

    If they can give away $100,000 per player I would be glad already. 1 Million is still too far stretched.

    yes, i think 1 million is to far to reach in the near future. Unless after Tony/Howard won, badminton become very very popular in US, then it will attrack more sponsors and more prize money to give away. also to attract more sponsors, Europe is the key except US, because now badminton is still identic with Asia.

    in tennis pro, the players can choose their coach, manager, etc while in badminton managed by team/organization in the country, and unlikely the players can choose own coach (except Taufik he2)

    Well, Taufik Hidayat won his gold medal at the 04 Olympic, he received almost an equivalent of $ 500,000.00 from the government. And for Indonesia standard, that is huge amount of money. And many who live in that 3rd world country would have never touch or have that much money in the whole life. That is one of the reasons why badminton is so pupolar there. It is a like a way out from the gutter as compared to basketball or football here in the US. Those successful players usually are from the poor family background ..... for them to get a chance at fame and richness, they give their life up just for badminton. They live, eat, sleep, dream about badminton. They are just hungry ........
    MOst of the middle and upper class players in other part of the world do not have that hunger to succeed because they have other options in their live in case badminton career does not go anywhere whereas over there once they fail in badminton..... they are left with nothing. Their dream shatters.....!!!!!
