    It is sad to see TH(5) crashing out in the 1st round of the main draw of the 2011 Yonex Open Japan SS tournament to the unseeded Chinese Taipeh player, Chou Tien Chen, 17-21, 21-12, 18-21, a player he easily beat in the 2nd round of 2011 US GPG tournament 21-15, 21-11.
    2011 has so far been unkind to TH and his losses are:-
    Rnd 2 of BWF WC to DWZL 17-21, 14-21
    Final of Canadian Open to MZ(S2) 13-21, 23-25
    Final of US GPG to MZ(S6) 16-21. 15-21
    TH was seeded 1 in both the Canadian and US opens and he was well-seeded in the other tournaments he played in 2011 prior to the aforesaid.
    With YOJ loss, it is obvious that TH’s world ranking will drop and this will not bode well for his final appearance at the 2012 Olympics where he could meet a seeded player even in the 1st round.

    He may even not make it to London if he carries on like this...

    He lost in R1 last year as well so the only way was up as far as WR was concerned ... The big points to defend are coming up in the next 3 tournaments (although of course it doesn't really matter where you grab them). Though early WC exit should have cost him dearly already yet he is still seeded 5th and WR #5?

    I'm not sure how I missed this article that was first published in May of this year. Here it is, a nice interview with Taufik...

    ‘I am building my after-badminton life’
    Niken Prathivi, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Wed, 05/04/2011 10:15 PM

    http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2...ton-life’.html

    Excerpts:

    While many veterans and legends in one of the most popular sports in the country struggle to build their lives after retiring from badminton, Taufik is preparing a post-badminton career that looks bright.

    ...Taufik’s world took a slight turn from its boisterous track when he married Amy Gumelar — the daughter of politician and sportsman Agum Gumelar and Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection Minister Linda Amalia Sari — in 2006.

    And now Taufik is the proud father of daughter Natarina Alika Hidayat and son Nayutama Prawira Hidayat.

    “My ambition [in badminton] is no longer as high as it used to be,” Taufik told The Jakarta Post recently. “It is because I have reached most of world titles. Now, I am pursuing my career in personal life… how to build a good family and grow my business,” he said.

    ...“Even so, I’m not planning to retire in the near future,” he said, adding that Yonex even extended their sponsorship of Taufik until 2014.

    ...Taufik, who decided to quit the national training camp in 2009, has prepared for his post-badminton career by establishing his own management group called the Taufik Hidayat Force. Gaining support from family and management, Taufik started his arena project in 2010.

    ...The arena hired Taufik’s coach, Mulyo Handoyo, and several of Indonesia’s top players such as Vita Marissa and Nova Widianto to provide various training sessions for patrons, including for those coming from out town or overseas.

    The idea of this arena came up in 2007-2008, said Taufik. “It is also a gift for my parents, who have been dreaming of having their own badminton courts.”

    ...The idea of becoming a politician has crossed Taufik’s mind.

    “But, I considered myself a straightforward person, as in being a competitive kind of way, which is an easy target to get rid of,” he said.

    “As for badminton, I will always support the development of the sport as long as I can. But being PBSI chief? Not now, but who knows about someday in the future,” added the recipient of Indonesia’s First Class Merit Star (Bintang Jasa Utama) in 2005.

    The support also applies to the national team in world tournaments, said the winner of the 2006 Doha Asian Games, as long as he still has his ability and was in the solid layer of players. “If I am in the second or third layer, retiring is a sure thing.”

    retiring at 2011 is not bad at all for taufik. the magic and glory is gone (gone too soon to be exact), he's now a mediocre player and anyone could defeat him relatively easy and that's not something to be proud of

    It is indeed sad to see TH's change of fortunes at the age of 30 years.
    Maybe, PHG could give him some tips.

    just thinking that he'll be retiring soon makes burst into tears. i've been his fans since i was 9 years old, i hope i can still watch him play at least until olympic. although it's hard watch him constantly defeated but i feel like i'm not ready watch badminton without him.

    Your wish of watching Taufik playing at the 2012 Olympics will come true.

    Taufik is still ranked No.1 in Indonesia and No.5 in the world.

    He just lost to Axelsen in Denmark Open. Even if Taufik compete in the Olympics I dont think he'll go through the first round. Sad to say about such a great player

    Let's hope that Taufik can prove you wrong (Out in Round 1?).
