    Silver requires Taufik not just to perform well but luck of draw and possibly a choke by either LD or LCW.

    Even bronze is hard, I would give Taufik less than 50% chance of beating Chen Long. Sho, Tago and Simon probably have good chance of winning against Taufik if they meet.

    Simon might be the Maria Kristin of this year Olympic. He might surprise everyone but taking the bronze.

    Simon can get something out of the tournament...it's not nice to see him retired without winning anything...after all i believe Simon is always an underrated player who receives very little attention..Taufik on the other hand, can lose any player ....even Japanese and European players are not afraid of facing him...so his chance to do well in the Olympic = quite slim

    He lost to an unknown Singaporean player in Wembley...that's an exit we never expected

    Same here and another players like PG, LCW, LD and CL
    I am more inspired by Taufik's Backhand Definitely his Backhand smash

    Yes! it was his revered backhand that got my attention. I was fortunate enough to see glimpses of it during the Australian open.

    Ah!! You are living in Australia... I have a question.... How big is the hall? From videos I have seen the hall/arena the tournament is in. It looks really small!!!
    I met TH, he is friendly...

    It's actually quite large, they had a total of 5 playing courts and another 10 or 12 warm up courts. The amount of seating stands itself was probably quite small but the hall itself was large.

    I had to fly from Perth, Western Australia to see the Australian Open. It was worth it as I managed to get a picture with Taufik himself. He is a very nice and humble guy but I felt kinda guilty asking for a pic because I think he was about to head into the warm up area after picking up his racket.

    Oh really? Thank you for the information. The seating area looks small probably not as big as the NIA in England.

    I have been to Perth... Nice area
    I felt really awkward when I met Taufik... I had a notepad in my bag and I didn't have my bag with me. I wanted his autograph, plus I didn't have a camera or phone. I awkwardly said "hey" to him and he said "hey" back. hahahaha. This was during the BWF World Championships 2011

    Later that day I met him and I got his autography. I got LD, PG and TH but I didn't get LCW... I was so annoyed !!!!

    Seating area is definitely nowhere near the capacity of the NIA in England. They could've put more seats down in my opinion.

    It is a bit nerve-wracking addressing your heroes, I actually ended up addressing him as "Mr Hidayat." I came prepared with my DSLR and little point-and-shoot camera for those "can I have pic" with you moments, to save my friend fumbling around with my DSLR.

    Man, you almost got the complete quadrilogy of badminton legends. I'm sure you'll get Lee Chong Wei next time, he'll be around for a little while yet me thinks.

    Another sad news from TH, he retired at first round of BAC 2012. TH knew that he is not young and his physic is not at the top anymore, then why force himself to plays in too many tournaments.
    Only to loose at the first round. Too bad....
