Paul Word: We Optimistic, But Must Careful
"This Chinese pair is new pair, and and they played well in Thailand GP Gold" said Paulus
Responding to this, Paul says that the Greys / Meli had to give maximum resistance and remain vigilant. "Greys / Meli must give full resistance, although it has just entered the first round. Should be careful of this CHN pair ". However, Paulus said he was optimistic Greys / Meli can overcome Cheng / Yixin. "Cheng Shu is not a new player, we've already know how is her game" said Paulus.
"The thing that should be wary of this Chinese pair is their power and speed, but in term of technique Greys / Meli not lost " he added.

‘Urgent’ Fix Needed for Men’s Singles Shuttlers
Ami Afriatni | June 08, 2011
The below-par performance of the men’s singles team at the Sudirman Cup last month has raised concerns among the country’s top badminton officials.
The country won only one men’s singles match in Qingdao, China, when Simon Santoso defeated Ivan Sozonov in a relatively easy tie with Russia.
Indonesia then lost its next three matches. Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka fell in two easy sets to world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei, from Malaysia, before Simon stumbled against Japan’s Kenichi Tago and Denmark’s Peter Gade.
Hadi Nasri, head of athletes at the Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI), said there was an “urgent need” to arrest the shuttlers’ slump.
“The players said they lacked focus during the preparation for the event, so they didn’t play well in China. But we have to fix this immediately,” Hadi said on Wednesday during the final of the Milo Schools Competition in Cipayung, East Jakarta.
Taufik Hidayat’s assessment of the team was much harsher.
The former world and Olympic champion gave up his spot on the Sudirman Cup team because he wanted other shuttlers to benefit from playing in a top-tier tournament.
“The young players did not show the fighting spirit during the Sudirman Cup, and I’m upset,” he said.
Based on Taufik’s recommendations, Hadi said PBSI would focus on the shuttlers’ physical conditioning.
“We’ll be testing them continuously. The program is also part of the process of player regeneration,” he said. “This program will cost a lot, so we’ll need support from KONI [National Sports Committee] and sponsors.”
Taufik said he hoped such measures would be implemented soon because the 2012 London Olympics were nearing. He has repeatedly voiced his desire to see youngsters get more exposure in international tournaments as veteran players like himself enter the twilight of their careers.
“Can you tell me which Indonesian is in the top 10 ranking besides me? I really hope somebody can replace me once the Olympics come along,” he said. “We have to deal with the fact that the young players we have now must be prepared very well.”
Hadi said it would be difficult to have the best possible men’s singles team ready in time for the Games. The PBSI’s aim, he said, was to focus on shuttlers who had performed well, like mixed doubles pair of Fran Kurni*awan Teng and Pia Zebadiah Bernadet.
At the Milo tournament, Jakarta secured two titles courtesy of Aurum Oktavia in the girls’ singles of the elementary school division and Sarah Cristin for junior high school.
Arief Dwi Yanto, from Gresik (elementary school), and Abdu Mu’in, from Samarinda (junior school), won the boys’ singles event.

Pertamina to Fuel Shuttlers’ Ambitions at SEA Games
Ami Afriatni | June 09, 2011
The plan to revitalize Indonesia’s national badminton program got a much-needed shot in the arm on Thursday, when state-owned oil and gas firm Pertamina signed a sponsorship deal.
The agreement between Pertamina and the Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) is worth Rp 2 billion ($234,000), and will run through the Southeast Asian Games in November. Pertamina has an option to extend the deal after the Games, which will be held in Palembang and Jakarta from Nov. 11-22.
“It is part of our commitment to help boost the nation’s sports development,” Hari Karyuliarto, Pertamina corporate secretary, said after signing the agreement at the national training camp in Cipayung, East Jakarta.
With badminton in its sponsorship fold, Pertamina is now involved in funding the country’s two most popular sports.
In October, the company signed a deal with the Indonesian Football Association to finance the Merah Putih’s training for the SEA Games. The amount of sponsorship was not disclosed.
The central government has urged companies, especially state-owned enterprises, to supports sports associations and their national teams that will compete in the Games.
In March, Bank Mandiri signed a Rp 2 billion sponsorship deal with the Indonesian Athletics Federation (PASI) and Bank Rakyat Indonesia pledged Rp 3.7 billion for the Indonesian Karate-do Federation (Forki). Other government firms that have agreed to fund sports federations for the regional Games are Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom), which has a tie-up with the Indonesian Cycling Union (ISSI), and flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, which is backing the Indonesian Tennis Federation (Pelti).
The deal with Pertamina comes at the perfect time for PBSI. The association has plans to modernize its national program after a string of poor results in recent competitions.
The PBSI has set a target of four gold medals at the Games, the same number it won at the Laos Games in 2009.
“We’ll use the money to develop athletes such as improving training facilities at the camp and building a laboratory to oversee players’ physical progress,” said Djoko Susilo, PBSI president.
The country’s best players, past and present, have been yearning for a better system that would develop future stars.
On Wednesday, Taufik Hidayat fumed at his teammates’ “lack of fighting spirit” at last month’s Sudirman Cup World Mixed Team Championships in Qingdao, China. “We have to deal with the fact that the young players we have now must be prepared very well,” he said.
Badminton legend Rudy Hartono agreed, saying that with the current state of Indonesian badminton, the shuttlers may miss out on a medal in the London Olympic Games next year.
Since badminton was introduced as an Olympic sport in 1992, the country has taken home one gold medal in every edition of the competition.
To help find new talent, Rudy has established the Pembangunan Jaya Cup, an under-19 mixed team club tournament. The Rp 400 million event will be held at Asia Africa Sports Complex in Jakarta, from June 16-18.
“We picked the format because we were inspired by the Sudirman Cup,” the 1980 world men’s singles champion said. “We want to continue the Cup momentum to look for promising young talents and give them more playing experience.”
Eight clubs have been invited to the Jaya Cup: Mutiara and SGS Elektrik of Bandung; Jaya Raya Suryanaga and Hiqua Wima from Surabaya; Kudus’ Djarum; and Tangkas Alfamart, Pelita Bakrie and host Jaya Raya of Jakarta.
“Those clubs have been the backbone of Indonesian badminton as they’ve consistently produced the best shuttlers,” Rudy said. “We need more of this kind of tournament so the regeneration wheel will keep turning.”

Editorial: A mediocre badminton force?
The Jakarta Post | Tue, 06/28/2011 7:00 AM
It was a sad end for Indonesian badminton players as they saw their opponents romp home with all titles at stake at the Djarum Indonesia Open Super Series on Sunday. For three years in a row Indonesia has failed to win any titles in the tournament it once dominated.
The last time Indonesia won titles was in 2008, with men’s singles Sony Dwi Kuncoro — who this year could not even make it into the main draw — and women’s doubles pair Lilyana Natsir and Vita Marissa.
On Sunday, Lilyana raised Indonesia’s hopes in the mixed doubles with Tontowi Ahmad, but failed to clear the final hurdles. Meanwhile, Vita and Nadya Melati lost easily to their Chinese opponents in the women’s doubles.
China, again, reigned supreme, pocketing four of five titles on offer, losing only the men’s singles crown to Malaysian world number one Lee Chong Wei.
The poor performance on home soil should serve as a wake-up call for the Badminton Association of Indonesia (PBSI) that it needs to overhaul its development programs, starting with talent-scouting, recruitment and training. Under the old method, Indonesia produced the so-called “Magnificent Seven” who were a dominant force in world badminton between the 1970s and 1980s, especially in the men’s division.
But the world has changed. The sport has gradually lost its charm in Indonesia, making it hard for the PBSI to find talents with great potential to excel.
The snail-paced regeneration has forced Indonesia to bank on the same old players in major tournaments, placing too much burden on them, while at the same time their performance is on the decline.

Bring Shuttlers Up To Speed in Faster Game, PBSI Urges
Ami Afriatni | July 13, 2011
National shuttlers need to adapt to a faster game if they hope to maintain their elite status in world badminton, an Indonesian Badminton Association official said on Wednesday.
Hadi Nazri, head of athletes’ development affairs at the association, also known as PBSI, said the pace of the game had obviously quickened after the rally point system was introduced in August 2006.
He says matches are played at a much quicker pace now compared to 10 years ago, but is just as effective.
Before the system was implemented, only the serving side was credited with a point. With rally scoring, either side has a chance at scoring a point.
“It’s getting more competitive in both men’s and women’s singles with the new system,” Hadi said on Wednesday. “If we keep sticking to the old style, we’ll keep falling behind other countries.”
Hadi acknowledged that a “badminton laboratory” would be expensive, but he hoped the government would look past the budget constraints for the betterment of the sport.
“If they care about badminton, about a sport that has given Indonesia a gold medal at every Olympic Games since 1992, [the government] must act soon,” he said.

Shuttlers struggle to adjust with Li Mao’s metho
Agnes Winarti, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Thu, 07/14/2011 10:59 AM
Nearly five months after the national badminton training center hired Chinese coach Li Mao, the national singles shuttlers and coaches said on Wednesday that they were still struggling to adapt and communicate.
The country’s singles squad has been under public scrutiny lately after consecutive disappointing performance at the Sudirman Cup world mixed team badminton championship and the Djarum Indonesia Open Super Series Premier badminton championship.
“I believe that Li Mao’s ideas are good. He wants to bring our singles shuttlers back on track with current world badminton. However, more time is needed for our athletes to change their perspectives of the way badminton should be played now,” said men’s singles coach Agus Dwi Santoso at the Indonesia Badminton Association (PBSI) headquarters in Cipayung, East Jakarta, on Wednesday.
The Chinese coach expects that, besides fast offense, singles shuttlers must have efficient strokes, movements and on-court strategy, said Agus.
“Just as how [world number one] Lee Chong Wei plays. The problem is, not all of our shuttlers understand how to play like that,” Agus said.
Coach Li Mao, who has not spoken to the media since arriving earlier this year, was not present at the media conference on Wednesday.
Women’s singles coach Marleve Mainaky acknowledged that his group faced the same problems adapting to Li’s coaching style.
“Basically, I understand that Li Mao hopes to improve the technical aspects of all the shuttlers, for example, being efficient in their strokes. But how can they perform that if they have bad agility? Each player is different with their own pluses and minuses. So they can’t be treated similarly,” said Marleve, adding that poor communication is another hurdle in the adaptation between the players and the new coach.
“We really need to improve the communication between athlete and coach as well as the athletic development division,” said Marleve.
Men’s singles shuttlers Simon Santoso and Dyonisius Hayom Rumbaka agreed that adjusting to Li’s method has in some part hurt their confidence on the court.
“After the method of playing was changed, I was hesitant and in doubt when playing on the court,”
“I have tried my best to follow his method, but it is still difficult to adjust — especially in my condition,” said Simon, whose world rank has dropped to number 13 after an injury, although in August last year he briefly reached the top three.
Agus also hopes for more support from the PBSI in treating injuries.
“All this time, when a shuttler gets injured, the first person we come to is always the masseuse. Thus, the most athletes don’t immediately receive proper medical treatment,” he said.
Agus also expressed his hope for a less rigid PBSI regulation concerning opportunities for shuttlers to compete abroad.
“In 2005 and 2007, the PBSI allowed shuttlers to receive private funds from clubs or individual sponsorships to compete in more international tournaments abroad, if they couldn’t get funding from the PBSI. I hope that the current PBSI leaders are willing to apply that regulation again now,” said Agus.

Look like the men's single and women's singles players still need more time to adapt with Li Mao's training method.
07-14-2011, 11:01 AM #2274
Obviously he wants them to be amongst the best in the world and his method attests to his commitment.
I don't think he communicates well in Indonesian and that is also a problem for the players.
The players just have to adjust to this new method of training if they want to close the gap between them and the Chinese.

Weighted Vest to train the speed and endurance
In order to increase physical endurance and agility of the footwork, the women's singles player to practice using a weight vest. Some players like Maria Febe Kusumastuti, Lindaweny Fanetri, and Aprilia Yuswandari seen playing using a weight vest during the afternoon practice session at the national training camp Cipayung.
The usage of the vest ballast is intended to train the speed and endurance so the players can be more agile and have a strong stamina when playing later. Moreover with using this weighted vest so the energy that required when playing is more then fat burning will be more effective.
Women's singles coach, Wong Tat Meng who accompany his protege during practice said that the exercises use this vest is very useful. "They need extra training in footwork and this exercise is good for it," Wong said.
However, the use of this vest should not be excessive because it can cause injury to the muscle. "We apply it when needed only, should not be too often because it is not good for them" added Wong.
