Congratulations Taufik 2006 Asian Games Champ
He has his mind set all these while for the MS GOLD Medal. In fact he arrived early in Doha for the preparation which something that he does not do often during games. No matter what other people say during the TEAM events, what matter now is that He Won the GOLD medal.
Excerpts of portion of the Conversation in Malay ( Translated in English ). However this is the professional version. Not the REAL conversation version. If you know what i mean... anyway enjoy.
Ants: You played well today. Good thing you win the 1st set.
TH : Yeah, once i had the 1st set , i know i can capitalised on it. Fortunately i feel Lindan kinda forcing his way thru on the second set. But well at least now i'm tasting the Gold.
Ants: Did your lost to Lindan in the Team Event affect you?
TH : Nope, my mind was set in winning the MS in DOHA. Its ok that he win me during the Team event. Anyway we have to take a game at a time. Win or lose, we have to take things fresh again.
Ants : Yeah, i would like to see you play with LCW in the Finals than Lindan playing you in Finals. I was rooting for CW during your match with him.
TH: Hahahah. Its the Draw. But it was tough playing CW. But i got the better of him this time.
Ants : I know, its 50/50 chance if not because of the accident. I think it kinda slowed him down a little. Anyway Lets celebrate... now got big bonus...
TH : Yeah...
Sorry... thats all that i can provide for you guys The rest not important.

It obviously did mean a lot to him . I'm so happy that he won! Well done Taufik! BCL, LCW and now LD. Very solid performance and well earned gold. Certainly can't argue that his draw "favoured him" this time !
Hard luck to LD, in that second set it could have gone either way.

Big time vs small time
Taufik is a big time player. It is as simple as that. After winning Asian Games in 2002, Olympic Games in 2004 and World Championship in 2005..he still can find the motivation to capture Asian Games gold medal again. Guess he is the special one. LCW is just one year younger than him.. but still chasing his first major title.. so sad.

On Doha website..LD said a good thing about TH...LD seems that the past comment about him did not make him mean or arrogant...I guess I am starting to like him for his sportmanship...

Where have you been??..Originally Posted by kemana
Good thing you watched it, while I missed the Finals (overslept), but it's okay...
Anyways, congrats to both players, both great players, for giving us another wonderful 1 week plus of entertainment(let alone playing 3 times against each other in that span).
Their battles and dramas in this AG are truly indelible and will be talked about over and over again for future generations...
Dare i say it, barring any major injuries or mishaps, their sequels are to be continued next yr, that's 1 thing i'm sure of. (I hope they can meet again in the Sudirman Cup Finals, World Championships Finals & the Super Series Grand Prix Finale next yr)..
*Btw, ants, thanks for sharing your conversation, with Taufik, with us..

Taufik in my mind is the best Indonesian player ever... I have seen Rudy Hartono and Liem Swie King in action... Their talent were excellent, but Taufik is phenomenal...

All happy Indonesians and Malaysians here... Today is quite an extraordinary day...

Congratulations indeed to Taufik Hidayat. He has proven that he still has the motivation to win the big game! I watched the delayed telecast at Channel 62 of HK Cable TV. It was clear that Taufik took the initiative in the first set and his net-play was almost perfect!
Lin Dan's body language also looked different than usual...perhaps the nerves started to creep in, esp after Xie Xingfang, Zhang Ning, and Fu Haifeng/Cai Yun all lost their matches. He started to play better after the interval of the second set, but, only to see 3 game points evaporated in a flash and Taufik finished him up with 5 consecutive points.
It will be interesting to see how Lin Dan reacts to this defeat. As for Taufik, I think he will still remain to be temperamental and only choose to win if he deems it necessary (like this AG gold medal).
