    Good bye tataufik

    My deepest memory of taufik, is him at 17yo playing at all England final.

    although only 17, he show tremendous skills, calmness and power.

    Sad to know he will never play a professional match again.

    Take care Taufik.

    Taufik was the first pro badminton player I ever knew. Will miss him and his backhand.

    I too must offer my tributes the Taufik. I was fortunate enough to have watched him play in my own city. He was a magician, a one of a kind genius. And that trademark backhand... WOW!

    I hope he manages to unearth a few for Taufiks at his academy.

    I wish I knew him during his peak. But seen few of his matches, he sure was and is a magician. Its only that everyone figured out his tricks... I felt very bad today for him by the way people bid him farewell today. I was expecting a farewell at a much grander scale than Peter Gade's. But I was sorely disappointed. I hope PBSA and event organizers have something in mind to celebrate the emotional moment of bidding a farewell to a National Hero.

    Good bye Taufik Hidayat!

    It was an honour watching you Taufik.

    Your playing style, deception and smoothness were one of a kind. That backhand of yours was a joy to watch and I doubt it will ever be matched.

    I take my hat off to have been fortunate enough to see so many of your matches (although sadly none live) and I will keep on re-watching them for as long as I can.

    You will be hugely missed, I hope you have great success in your academy and wish you all the best for your future.

    Goodbye Taufik (The Great, One of the 4 Kings) Hidayat.

    In a way I feel let down because the naysayers and haters will hold his anti-climactic exit as a trump card against him. I wish he could have done well in this tournament to shut them up but I guess he just doesn't care about that sort of stuff. I mean, why should he? He has those amazing medals in his cabinet and a decade-and-a-half of top class badminton to look back on. I do hope that fans will do something bigger as his leaving gift. He didn't receive the send off he deserved after his match today.

    His career has been good enough that even after the lacklustre ending, it hasn't affected his status at all. Anyone who is a fan of badminton knows his name and what he has achieved. It is sad to think I won't be able to watch any more matches but hopefully his efforts to train youngsters will bring forward new talents, maybe even some who will be as good as he was.

    Don't worry, I doubt the haters will surface in this instance 'cos if they do, they'll only expose themselves for the losers they are.

    Regardless of any achievements or losses, the guy has been a total legend.

    His crazy backhands, his insane forehand smashes in the past, his on court style, being a child prodigy and a complete natural talent have inspired many, many players and spectators. He had his own set of rules, played the game like no one else ever has and could beat them all, for that he gets ultimate respect.

    This was submitted earlier in the thread by another user but just wanted to show the best of him again.
    It's always a sad thing in any sport when a legend and frontrunner of the sport ceases to show his/her talents ever. If there ever was someone born to be legendary that was probably Taufik. All the best man, thanks for dazzling us for nearly half of your lifetime.

    I remember TH in 2005 WC in Anaheim. It was evening and TH, Amy and Amy's mother were wondering in the lobby when I bumped into them. I asked for a picture and Amy's mother said why don't I take a picture of you and TH together. I can tell you TH is a fan's player, he is so easy to oblige with a smile, he signed an autograph for me. Great guy...and I saw that backhand he did on LCW in the SF, classic. That WC final was absolutely TH at his best...like LCW had no chance playing LD in OLY08, likewise LD had no chance playing TH that night in Anaheim.

    Oh man ... till this time I still can't believe that Taufik would not be playing pro badminton anymore.

    I've been lucky enough following his career since my childhood. I still remember my friends and I were watching on TV Taufik vs Ji Xinpeng in the final of Thomas Cup 2000. I was still in elementary school at that time btw. And that match was an epic one. Taufik won dramatically after deuce. He also showed some unusual stroke in that match. After that we thought we've got new badminton idol who could inspire us. He was still very young, handsome, and the most important parts: very skillful and always be cool on the court.

    Thanks Taufik for all the great inspirations! We are very thankful to have you with us!
