what he said is true, sutiyoso even claimed that he should be replaced by a person who truly loves badminton and who has a deeper pocket to dig...
taufik has nothing else to prove giving he's won everything there is to be won (except the all england title), in other words he's lazy. other ina md's are not capable of improving further....so why not start fresh?and postpone winning titles, whilst concentrating on solid regeneration, right?

INA's women's team future
reading news about XXF's comments following her win against Maria...she commented that Maria was playing at a differnet level from her. This led to me to question:
(1) Will INA's current batch of WS (Maria, Firda, Pia, etc.) ever join the world elites i.e. by breaking into the top 10?
(2) Was the runner-up result a fluke, or will it signal INA's women's team revival from 10 years of malaise??

1. Pia Zebaidah has a big potential to be a top player. Her style is lovely to watch. Susi said Pia had similar style to Mia Audina and she's smart. I also feel the same.
But I'm not sure about Maria Kristin and Firda. They have been around in badminton quite long I guess? Firda does have the spirit but I'm not sure if she had enough panache needed to be a top player.
2. The result might be just a fluke, but I see it show some signs of revival, particularly in doubles and a girl named Pia.

Greysia Polii, where's she from? her surname is interesting and cute indeed.
I think Deyana Lomban (already retired) had the most pleasant looking face. Not necessarily cute, but it's pleasant to look at, like Gao Ling from China. Where's Deyana now?

My 2 sen rupiahs..
1. I highly doubt it, given Maria and Firda have been around long enough, yet they've failed to produce anything major. Pia, still can, because she's still relatively young. This is key: Granted also she's given more chances to compete internationally>>>U.S. Open??*wink* *wink*
(2008 UC related)2. I think it's not really a fluke eventhough they were drawn into a fairly favorable draw. All they needed, which i've posted before the start of this tourney, was to win their group and they have a good shot of reaching the Final. They were a bit fortunate, IMO, as they didn't have to play vs. the Dutch; i would imagine they could've lost against the NED. On the other hand, Japan losing all of their ties was, IMO, quite surprising. So, at the end, JPN did the INA's UC team a favor.
Hmm, from d65up2's post #187, looks like BAM and PBSI are in the same boat.

Surely, a few players must go (Taufik Hidayat for sure) and some regrouping is needed. However, I don't think it's all doom and gloom.
We have some upcoming talents in MD who will perhaps rise up the ranking tables given the time and of course competion. We also have some clubs starting to realise the importance of grooming up young players who will hopefully join the National Team later on.
So, let's see what those clubs will be doing in the near future. One thing for sure though, Djarum is more proactive than before in sending both the senior and junior squads to international competitions

I think I have to agree that the sooner TH goes, the better for the whole squad. His lack of discipline is a bad example for young upcoming youngsters, and blocks regeneration in Pelatnas. Anyhow, why does TH feel the need to stick for another 1-2 more years if he's not winning anything anymore? (or is he really still chasing for AE??) He should retire after OG...damage limitation.

Taufik Hidayat is a curse and a blessing to INA badminton....a blessing because it showed that INA do have amazing talent like him...a curse because he promotes undisciplined attitude....taking ecstassy??? Come on wat an attitude lets see wat LYB will do if Lin Dan do this....he would ask Lin Dan not to come to training ever again
Taufik sadar donk malu maluin kamu!

Isn't he going to retire after OG?
If so, our wish will come true.
But who'll be INA MS 3 & 4?

And then having babies with a waitress but denied it later....? So many bad rumors.
His case might be at scandal level everywhere else, except in INA maybe. lol.
