Sudirman badminton squad loses player to dengue fever
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta
June 05 2007
Men's doubles shuttler Joko Riyadi will miss next week's Sudirman Cup badminton mixed team championship in Glasgow, Scotland, because he is sick with dengue fever.
"The doctor said Joko will not be able to make it, so the team will only feature 19 shuttlers," the Badminton Association of Indonesia's official in charge of training, Lius Pongoh, said as quoted by Antara on Monday.
Joko's absence means there will be five men's doubles players on squad. They are Markis Kido, Hendra Setiawan, Alvent Yulianto, Candra Wijaya and Hendra AG, who usually partners Joko.
"Hendra AG will still join the team as a backup, in case something happens to one of the other four," Lius said.
Indonesia's squad flew to Glasgow on Monday night. Indonesia is in the same group with Denmark, South Korea and Hong Kong.
Officials say the team's best chances to score points will come in the men's singles, men's doubles and mixed doubles.
Women's singles coach Hendrawan is hopeful Maria Kristin and Adriyanti Firdasari will be able to help the squad in the round-robin stage.
"Hong Kong players will be the toughest challenge for our women's singles. I think the two shuttlers still have a chance to beat the Korean or Danish players."
Defending champion China is upbeat on its chance to retain the trophy.
"We will have no problem getting past the group stage," said China's head coach Li Yongbo, as quoted by Xinhua. "Our target is to play our best at the Sudirman Cup and retain the title."
The badminton powerhouse will meet fourth seeds Malaysia, England and Thailand in the group stage.

My friend told me the story about Joko who got lost during All England!
He went to Chelsea to watch The Blues vs Tottenham with Vita, Rani and Lilyana. Then, he went to London with the girls, but the girls left him there. After the match was over, when all the Indonesian players were supposed to gather in Uni of Birmingham, Joko didn't appear. No one knew where he was.. But he showed up an hour later and said: "I got lost in London"..
