Poor Taufik! Sank without a trace at the IO PSS this year, beaten straight by a resurgent and inspired Sony.
...and GC added to his anguish by mis-identifying his wife!
I really hope he can pull something special out of his bag at the OG.

Taufik Hidayat on collision course with Lin Dan
Posted on: 23 Jul 2012, 11:55 PM
London: Taufik Hidayat, the former Olympic champion who is one of badminton's big four, could have an earlier than expected end to his famous career at the 2012 Games.
...Lin is regarded by many people as the greatest player of all time, and if the elastic left-hander lives up to that billing it could well bring curtains for Hidayat as early as Wednesday week (August 1st).
...This spectacular denouement though depends on the sometimes controversial 30-year-old from West Java adhering to his feeling that these Olympics are a suitable climax for calling it a day.
Hidayat has repeated his statement that he will do that here, but he also recently said: "But I don't know. There are lots of things that I have to consider before making the decision."
...Hidayat was also reported to have said that he could not communicate with Lin Dan, prompting the Chinese legend to blame the media for "sowing discord" between them.
Lin was nevertheless reported as saying: "We are not as friendly to each other as to other players."
Hidayat may be paying a price over the next two weeks for injuries, lack of fitness, and variable form, which have caused him to slip from the world's top ten. That has made him vulnerable, with a seeding down at 11, to the disappointing draw he has landed...
