Thomas Cup hero passes away
Agnes Winarti, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Wed, 06/08/2011 7:00 AM
After battling liver cancer for sometime, an Indonesian badminton hero who took home the 1984 Thomas Cup, Hadibowo Sutanto, passed away at the age of 52 at Medistra Hospital in Jakarta on Tuesday.
The former national shuttler, who was born on July 4, 1958 in Tegal, Central Java, had been undergoing cancer treatment in Jakarta and Singapore since January.
However, his condition became worse since Saturday last week.
1984 has been highly regarded as his golden year, as the men’s doubles specialist dueted with Christian Hadinata, to win the Thailand, Indonesia and Dutch Opens.
The Hadibowo and Christian duo reached its peak performance at the 1984 finals of the Thomas Cup badminton championship in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where Indonesia overcame China 3-2.
At the time, Indonesia was lagging 1-2 behind China, as Liem Swie King and Icuk Sugiarto were defeated by Luan Jin and Yang Yang, respectively. The duet tied 2-2 for Indonesia as they calmly took He Sangquan and Jiang Guoliang, 18-14, 15-10.
Hadibowo was remembered by former shuttler Lius Pongoh mostly for his “resillience on the court”.
“[On the court] he never gave up easily,” recalled Lius, who was also the former head of athletes development at the Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI).
Off court, Lius remembered Hadibowo as kind hearted, assertive and willing to help everyone.
“I never forgot when he helped me install the communication radio antenna at the national training camp in the 1980s. I asked him to help me because I was afraid to climb on to the roof of the athletes dormitory on Jl. Manila,” Lius, who felt he had close ties with Hadibowo, told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.
Hadibowo also for a brief time paired with Swie King at the 1983 SEA Games in Singapore.
Prior to that, the shuttler who was born and raised by the prestigious badminton club Djarum, also partnered briefly with Bobby Ertanto, Hafid Yusuf, Heryanto Saputra and Eddy Hartono. His achievements rocketed high after he paired with Christian, the now-national doubles’s team head coach.
His remains are currently at Rumah Duka Dharmais until Friday before a final cremation ceremony will be held at Oasis Lestari in Tangerang.
Hadibowo is survived by his wife Desy Lieana Soeharti and three children William, Alvin and Nathania Tansy Hadibowo.

Linda and April lost.. well, i think the coach should considering to send them to some IC and GP tournament first, at least until they are more stable than now.

No pt sending these players to GPG or SS events.
It's true that they probably need to at least win one or two titles at IC level or GP level before they can contemplate any higher-level tourneys.

What I am sometimes annoyed with is that PBSI seldom realises the benefits of sending the under-performing senior-level players and 2nd-team players to IC or GP level tourneys and therefore, they seldome sent these players to those tourneys.
There's TONS of IC or GP level tourneys that can be exploited to boost up the rankings of players.
Russian Open GP & IC
Indonesia IC - home event but I can guarantee PBSI will only send their junior team there.
Vietnam Open GP
Indonesia Open GPG - home event, but if response is enthuastic (due to Olympics qualification), again, it might be hard for the Pelatnas players (even first team players) to win a title.
Bulgarian (or Swiss) IC & Dutch GP - I will prefer PBSI to send their 2nd team to these 2 back-to-back European events.
India IC & GP
06-08-2011, 08:53 AM #2254
I guess the schedule for 2nd layer team will be the same like last year: Vietnam GP,Indonesia IC,Indonesia GPG,Malaysia IC,India GP. yawn... lets hope im wrong!
06-08-2011, 09:00 AM #2255
Predictable but not exactly that encouraging for these players to improve their rankings.
06-09-2011, 02:07 AM #2256
Indonesian Junior Team Event, 8 club with participate : Jaya Raya, Tangkas Alfamart, Pelita Bakrie, Mutiara, SGS PLN, Djarum, Jaya Raya Suryanaga, and Hiqua Wima.

Pertamina pledges to maintain sponsorship after SEA Games
Agnes Winarti, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 06/10/2011 10:16 PM
The Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) signed a Rp 2-billion (US$234,000) sponsorship agreement with state-owned oil and gas company Pertamina on Thursday.
The partnership, aimed at bolstering the team’s goal of capturing four gold medals at the Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games) in November, was called an entry point for larger sponsorship opportunities.
“Next year, the PBSI will also face prestigious competitions, including the Thomas and Uber Cups and the Olympic Games. We hope Pertamina will continue supporting us,” PBSI chairman Djoko Santoso said after signing the agreement at PBSI headquarters in Cipayung, East Jakarta, on Thursday.
The national oil and gas company, which currently operates in 12 countries, including Australia, China, and Japan, wants expand its international reach and is hoping to benefit from sponsoring one of the world’s badminton powerhouses.
“We have a commitment to continue and to take part in restoring badminton as part of our national pride,” Pertamina spokesman Mochammad Harun said.

Should ask/get another Rp2billions to get their company name written on the front of INA jersey. CHN got FedEx and Citroen, maybe INA should get DHL and BMW or something

PBSI simply does not have any intention to send its players beyond Asia. Even for European tourneys, they only know the AE, Swiss, Denmark, and French (sometimes with German or Bitburger or Dutch). They WILL NOT send its players to the European ICs tourneys.

Singapore Open Draw Proves Unkind to Indonesia’s Super Series Hopefuls
Ami Afriatni & Sandy Pramuji | June 13, 2011
Indonesia’s shuttlers face a tall task in their quest to add to their lone title in four Super Series tournaments this year.
The draw for this week’s Singapore Open Super Series did them few favors, with most of the country’s best hopes receiving tough opening-round matchups.
Sony Dwi Kuncoro, the reigning men’s singles champion, has seen his performances take a turn for the worse since his victory in Singapore last year. The world No. 34 opens against China’s Bao Chunlai in Wednesday’s first round at Singapore Indoor Stadium, having only won twice in eight matches against the No. 7 seed.
Simon Santoso, who reached the semifinals of the year’s first two Super Series events before losing in the first round in the next two, opens against rising Vietnamese star Nguyen Tien Minh. While Simon has a 2-0 career record against the No. 6 seed, he said he was taking nothing for granted.
“[Nguyen] is a good and determined shuttler who covers the court well,” the world No. 10 said on Monday. “It will be a tough match.”
Top-seeded Taufik Hidayat will open against a qualifier, while Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka takes on Sho Sasaki of Japan and Alamsyah Yunus faces third-seeded Chen Long of China.
With world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia opting out of the $200,000 tournament to focus on preparing for the world championships in August, Lin Dan of China is the heavy favorite to win in Singapore. The No. 2 seed, who won the Korea Open to interrupt Lee’s run of men’s singles titles this year, only needs to reach the quarterfinals to overhaul the Malaysian as the world No. 1.
Indonesia’s best chance for victory is likely mixed doubles. Liliyana Natsir has recovered from the elbow injury that forced her out of the Sudirman Cup and is ready to reunite with partner Tontowi Ahmad.
The duo brought home the country’s only Super Series title in April after a 21-18, 23-21 victory over Fran Kurniawan Teng and Pia Zebadiah Bernadet in an all-Indonesia final at the India Super Series.
“I feel good after resting my elbow for about a month. We’re looking for our second Super Series title this year,” Liliyana said.
While Tontowi and Liliyana open with a pair of qualifiers, Fran and Pia take on No. 6 seeds Tao Jiaming and Qing Tian of China in the first round.
“Our opponents might be tough, but we’ll play with more determination,” Fran said.
Nova Widianto and Vita Marissa said they were rejuvenated after their second-place finish in the Thailand Grand Prix Gold. They lost 21-10, 23-21 to Taiwan’s Lee Sheng-mu and Chien Yu-chin in Sunday’s final.
Nova and Vita face Polish rivals Robert Mateusiak and Nadiezda Zieba in the opener.
“We were playing great in Thailand and that boosted our confidence for Singapore. When I was still playing with Liliyana, we beat the Polish pair many times. I hope I can do that again with Vita,” Nova said.
Maris Kido and Hendra Setiawan open men’s doubles play against Tony Gunawan and Howard Bach of the US.
