If I'm not mistaken, Tony is playing for USA and Candra for Indonesia. My question is, during the award ceremony, which flag will they raise? USA, INA, or both?

They played for both respective countries. I dont think there was anthem being player nor flags being raised. They tried to be normal. I hope they can play together on the coming events

Sutiyoso going to talk to TONY AND CHANDRA
After their relatively easy wins over remaining indo pairs, Sutiyoso the head of PBSI is doing the right thing to talk to TONY and CHANDRA to represent Indo in Sudirman or maybe even Thomas cup. He understands that Tony is already tied to US, but he will try to find leeways. Good luck!
I just hope that Tony and Chandra still pair up for individual open tournaments.

I mean, from watching the match, i'm sure those who have followed his playing days in Pelatnas have noticed that his footsteps have also slow down a bit(couldn't get back quick enough to his original position after retrieving a shot)..Although his superb mind and techniques offset that loss of footspeed..

i don't know how that will be accomplished by Sutiyoso, but it will be quite weird, looking at Tony playing for both USA and Indo for the Sudirman Cup(next yr) or Thomas/Uber Cup(in 2 yrs time) *at the same time*, is that possible??or if he agrees to play for INA then will he give up playing for USA...hmm ..Also, both of them will be older by then...
But i concur also, Tony and Candra should keep on playing internationally in individual open tourneys, rather than coaching... whilst their bodies are still able..

Taufik wins sixth Indonesian Open crown
Indra Harsaputra,The Jakarta Post, Surabaya
National number one men's singles player Taufik Hidayat resumed his charmed run in the US$250,000 Djarum Indonesian Open badminton championships by defeating higher-ranked Bao Chunlai of China in Sunday's final.
It was his sixth title in the event, following victories in 1999, 2000 and 2002-2004, and tied the record for most championships with Ardy B. Wiranata from the 1990s. He won $20,000.
Taufik, now world-ranked 14, was made to fight in a tight 21-16, 21-19 victory against his 6th ranked and 3rd seeded opponent, who also held a 3-1 head-to-head edge over him coming in to the final.
The win at Kertajaya Sports Hall also ended a long title drought for the 25-year-old from Bandung.
"I'm glad I was able to win the tournament here. It's been eight months and I haven't won anything," said the 2004 Olympic champion, whose last victory was the world championship title in Anaheim, the United States, last August.
"I present this win to my coach and my family," he said of coach Mulyo Handoyo, who resigned from the national training center after Indonesia's disappointing showing in last month's Thomas Cup men's team event.
Bao complained that he lost concentration at the crucial 19-19 point in the see-saw second game after he thought Taufik's shot landed out.
"I had a chance to beat him but my focus was disturbed by the umpire's call," he said. "I will beat him next time. I'll be waiting for him in the Singapore Open (next week)."
The scratch pairing of Candra Wijaya and Indonesian-born Tony Gunawan, who now plays for the United States, upset the much younger defending champions Markis Kido and Hendra Setiawan 21-17, 21-16.
"The defense of Kido and Setiawan was awful. We will evaluate this," said the national team's men's doubles coach Christian Hadinata.
Candra, 30, who withdrew from the national training center last month, was surprised by the ease of the win with his partner from the late 1990s, who turned 31 last month.
"We didn't have any special preparation for the tournament. We haven't teamed up for five years. Tony rarely practices now due to his job at an electronics company over there," Candra said.
"This victory is for my daughter's birthday."
The host contingent's hopes of winning another title were dashed when defending mixed doubles champions and top seeded Nova Widianto and Lilyana Natsir bowed out 19-21, 15-21 to China's Xie Zhongbo and Zhang Yawen.
"It was a tough match. The Chinese were difficult to figure out. They played very well and solidly," said Nova, who won the 2005 world title with Lilyana.
Badminton Association of Indonesia chairman Sutiyoso immediately said that he would evaluate the players' performance.
"The results were below our target of three titles."
Chinese shuttlers collected two more titles in the women's singles and doubles in all-Chinese finals.
Unseeded Zhu Lin defeated Lu Luan 21-11, 21-16 for the singles crown, while Wei Yili and Zhang Yawen subdued Yang Wei and Zhang Jiewen 21-13, 21-13.

he's still coaching here at OCBC, not sure if it's full time or not...But yah, from what i heard from back in Surabaya, everyone who watched them play again were in quite a bit of awe, as both Tony and Candra haven't played together for a long time, yet they were both in sync and able to play well together... The only drawback they saw was Tony's lost of foot-quickness, which most likely caused from lack of sparring partners here in the U.S...

He must have migrated if he plays for USA. So why did he migrate -- surely not to study only. If for study alone, he can go there without migrating.
