Hidayat fought back from a set down against Wang but his defence proved unable to cope with the heavy-hitting Chinese, who ran away with the decider to take it 21-16, 20-22, 21-13.
The upset ends a stormy tournament for the volatile Hidayat, who had slammed Indonesian media coverage after he did not attend a pre-tournament press conference.
"Today I played very badly," he said afterwards. "I think tomorrow I'll go back to Indonesia and prepare for (next week's) Indonesian Super Series."

Taufik vs. Bao this week at the 2011 Djarum Indonesian Open

Sadly, Taufik lost to Peter Gade in the quarters at this year's IO SSP.
Some of his recent remarks and interviews have got me thinking:
perhaps he is thinking of retiring even before the OG next year. Perhaps by the end of this year.
I just hope I am very wrong!!!

^It would be stupid to do so!

As long as he is enjoy it, should be ok. He should be one of the president candidate to be Players Association if they set one up. To take care of the well being of other players.

Yeah, he'd be a good choice!

The matches between PG and TH are very tight last time. It's sadly TH lost, but PG was probly the better in that match.
However, when I see the final of PG against LCW, I have the strong feeling TH could do more against LCW than PG did, no?
(I don't think TH could win of LCW, he is in a incredible shape at this time!!)
LCW was really playing with PG, which I don't see that happen with TH? Maybe TH can better handle the style of LCW than PG can?

IMO, TH is over confident after could beat BCL (straight set) in the 2nd DIOSSP 2011....

Still got this nagging feeling he's going to retire earlier than we would like.
IMO, he's finding it difficult to have enough reasons to keep the motivation going. The other INA MS players are not helping either, with their insipid performances.
One more thing: I am waiting for Taufik to come out and speak his mind on the coaching setup at PBSI.

Yah, sadly TH lost straight set again..
Hopefully that he will be back at 2011 Yonex Canada Open..
Good luck to Taufik Hidayat
