u will never know whats in taufik's mind...
maybe that few points is enuff for him to find out lin dan's weakness to prepare for WC hahaa
so he quit the game to prevent lin dan from knowing his weakness too haha...

it could be due to past few days while playing he felt the linecall were abit bias...
and it continues to builds up till LD's match and then it became too overwhelming and he exploded.. thus quit lol...
Anyway people get over it... he lost too bad..
Look on the bright side LD proceeded... isn't that good enough already?
Leave Taufik alone please

As a professional player, you should try to promote the sport, insteading of hurting it. I would strongly suggest IBF to fine and even suspend Taufik for his behavior!

well, Taufik hidayat has a bad tempered. What phaarix said is the truth. i know TH personally, he is really hate being cheated when he is playing. he cant withstand from the situation. he did the same all the time when those things happen. some people say he is childish. but, who's care?!! if no fair-play, what for he has to continue the game?? Remember, he is not new player in world championship. he has got everything (all england, olympic, world champion, etc). walk out from "only little" HK Open does not cost anything. he want a FAIR-PLAY game. also, as phaarix said, he want to enjoy himself.
in my opinion, that kind of incident is not a strange phenomena, especially in TH 'world'. seen many-many times already.

IBF should learn from tennis world.
Allow instant replay upon player request during the match.
Of course, it should be limited to 2 or 3 time per game.
I watched Rogers Cup and US open this year. It did not slow down the game.

i haven't seen the video, but just based on the description n pics, i must say that Taufik's action is unhonourable, unprofessional, immature (esp for a veteran) and unsportman-like. the laws of badminton is there to ensure proper sportmanship conduct. I think he should be fined for it. his coach should have convince him to stay in the match! i've never heard of any professional sportsmen walk out of a competition because of disputed calls. This mentality disqualifies Taufik as a player, and as a coach in his future.
even on an amateur level, i have only heard one incident where a club player walked off in a friendly doubles game with a big deficit score. The
guy just suddenly shake his head and walked off because he THOUGHT he had no chance of winning by a big come back. his expression = "ar... got no mood to play". I bet you would be mighty embarrased if you were his partner! no one in the club want to play with him! What if you can come back to win it, hugely behind and even with bad line calls?!
Think about the situation before you concurred with Taufik's decision. Very disrepectful. It doesn't matter if you shake hands with every judge and opponents' hands before you exit. if he is not in the mood to play, he should have just not participate in the tournament.
Taufik is certainly a very talented player with an attitude. He has done this similar non-sense in the past. Unfortunately, most rich kids are spoiled. His coach should discipline him, not to support his decision. If you want to be a true champion, you need to be a true sportsman. Learn from Peter Gade.
Professional players are role models for young players. I hope no one will think it is acceptable to walk off in the middle of a game without a legitimate reason. one/two bad calls or "seemingly no chance" to come back is NOT a legitimate reason.

Maybe the money doesn't motivate Taufik anymore. He used to be motivated by Glory but he has already attained it in the highest echelons of the sport. If he no longer needs money, what continues to motivate him? Of course still the basic desire to win but maybe thats not enough anymore...
