    Taufik. His name remains not only popular but always strikes the minds of fans and amateur badminton followers as 'genius'.

    To me he is and will always be the youngest player to be a 'child prodigy'. Unlike LCW who was only romp into BAM around 17ish. Too many that is considered late. But LCW turn out to be a late bloomer. In fact a world champion late bloomer.

    Taufik, though a 'prodigy' due to his burst not only into the badminton scene but also scalped a handful of senior players who possessed much more experienced and 'worth of salt' than him - in this still slows down due to age.

    And I am afraid that will ultimately happen to LCW too. No matter how much of a genius or talented player you are. As age comes up against you, you are no longer able to sustain and recover from training, don't even talk about tournaments.

    Taufik warns of English challenge after winning Axiata Cup
    Sunday, April 15, 2012

    http://www.bwfbadminton.org/news_item.aspx?id=61912

    Excerpts:

    Taufik Hidayat has taken on the persona of elder brother to his teammates and like an elder sibling, he knows when to encourage and when to chide them.

    ...“I consider all of them to be part of my (Indonesian) family and I want them to do well. Unfortunately, right now, only our doubles pairs have shown better results,” said Taufik, who posed for pictures with his daughter Natarina Alika Hidayat (above), after Sunday’s finals.

    The former Asian champion explained the Thomas Cup would be a much harder after Indonesia were drawn to meet China and England in the group stages.

    “Only the top two teams will progress to the quarter-finals and we cannot underestimate the English team. It would be easy and this is why I hope the younger singles players will be able to rise to the challenge from now till then,”

    ...Taufik is the only player to have played in all six matches in the Axiata Cup and he finished with a 100% winning record.

    Hidayat: I can still win Olympics
    By Shrikant Shankar
    Wednesday 25th April 2012

    http://www.espnstar.com/other-sports...-win-Olympics/

    Excerpts:

    ...Hidayat beat Yun Hu of Hong Kong 21-11, 21-19 in the ongoing Indian Open Super Series badminton championships at the Siri Fort Sports Complex in New Delhi on Wednesday. “Yes, I have a chance of winning the Olympics. Every player who plays in the Olympics has a chance to win,” said the 7th seed after winning the match.

    “Sometimes you have luck. Like in 2004, my ranking was 16 but I managed to win. You need luck to win big tournaments,” added Hidayat. “I mean, it’s not only luck. You need to perform also. But the most important thing is talent.”

    The London Olympics will be Hidayat’s fourth Games and he said this could be his last chance. “I’ll be too old in another four years’ time. So, probably this could be my last shot at another Olympics gold medal,” he quipped.

    ...Last year, the Indonesian maestro lost in the quarter-finals at the Indian Open. Asked about his possibilities this time around he said, “I want to take it one game at a time. I will concentrate on tomorrow’s opponent. I’m playing Zhengming Wang of China. If I win then I play world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei, so not looking too far ahead.”

    I think, if Taufik can win any medal in this coming olympic(gold, silver, or bronze), It is already considered as a surprise. At this state, i'm not sure if he can beat Chen Long to get Bronze. Hopefully Chen Long choked at the olympic.

    Realistically, I think a bronze will be as good as it gets, but that in itself will be quite an achievement for TH.

    Taufik Hidayat knows that Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei are the 2 players most expected to win the 2012 Olympic Gold medal.

    IMHO, if Taufik can defeat one of them, then only will he have a 50% chance of winning the 2012 Olympic Gold medal.

    Hmm, so you give him 50/50 chance of beating them? I think that is generous considering taufik hasnt beat lin since 2005 and int the past three years LCW leads TH 8-1..... According to the WBF h2h.

    I said "If Taufik can defeat one of them, then only will he have a 50% chance of winning the 2012 Olympic Gold medal".

    What I meant was: As soon as Taufik can defeat one of them (either Lin Dan or Lee Chong Wei), he will be as good as the top 2 players in the world, therefore he will have a 50% chance of winning the 2012 Olympic Gold medal.

    Lee Chong Wei will struggle tomorrow because he is not going to smash a lot against Taufik...when you play against Taufik, trickshots wont work effectively against him.
