    Indonesian Badminton Association Cracks The Whip
    Ami Afriatni | October 18, 2011

    Eager to halt a run of three Super Series events without a title, Indonesian badminton authorities hope stricter rules inspire the country’s shuttlers to victory.

    Coaches have blamed a lack of discipline for the drought. In response, the Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) decided last month to enact stricter rules in the national training camp, including a 9 p.m. curfew.

    “They have to be inside their room at 9 p.m. sharp. We also forbid them to eat anything outside the camp except on their off days,” mixed doubles coach Richard Mainaky said on Tuesday. “We hope these can improve their performance.”

    The Denmark Open begins today with the first round at the Odense Sports Park.

    Mixed doubles pair Tontowi Ahmad and Liliyana Natsir hold the country’s only Super Series titles this year, winning back-to-back tournaments in India and Singapore. Their form has slumped recently, though, including a second-round loss in the Indonesia Open Grand Prix in Samarinda last month.

    “We want to be back at our best again. We believe the new rules in the camp are intended to help us boost our performance,” Tontowi said.

    The No. 2 seeds will play against Lee Yong-dae and Ha Jung-eun of South Korea in the first round of the $400,000 tournament. The Indonesians have not lost in three previous meetings against the Koreans.

    Indonesia has sent three other mixed doubles pairs to Denmark. Fran Kurniawan Teng and Pia Zebadiah Bernadet open against a qualifier, while Muhammad Rijal and Debby Susanto face Hirokatsu Hashimoto and Mizuki Fujii of Japan.

    Nova Widianto and Vita Marissa, meanwhile, take on Songphon Anugritayawon and Kunchala Voravichitchaikul of Thailand.

    Indonesia’s four top men’s singles also feature in the tournament. No. 5 seed Taufik Hidayat opens against Hans-Kristian Vittinghus of Denmark, Tommy Sugiarto faces India’s Ajay Jayaram and Simon Santoso takes on a qualifier.

    Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka plays Japan’s Sho Sasaki.

    The PBSI decided not to send any women’s singles shuttlers to the tournament because of their low world ranking.

    “All of our women’s singles [shuttlers] are outside top 30. We think it would be a waste of money to send them to Denmark as we know they will likely lose in the first round,” PBSI head of athletes’ development Hadi Nazri said. “We’ll only send them to tournaments in Asia like the China Open and the Hong Kong Open because the costs won’t be as expensive as if we sent them to Europe.

    “But if they show some progress in the Asian tournaments, we’ll consider sending them to future tournaments in Europe.”

    It's wise decision, wasting money if all of INA WS players only reach first round or second round or worst result failed to book main draw ticket in back-to-back DEN & FRA SS tourney.

    So we'll see Firda, Linda, etc. next month for CHN Open SSP as they will miss HKG Open this year due to its schedule clash with SEA Games

    Tommy Sugiarto is up against Chen Jin next at the DO.
    Tommy has been playing pretty well recently, more up to his potential than before.
    If he can get by CJ, it will give a huge boost to his confidence.
    Also good for INA, for the OG qualifications...

    Girls Expected to Help Lead the Way for Indonesia
    Ami Afriatni | October 19, 2011

    http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/sport...donesia/472727

    Excerpts:

    While Indonesia’s women in the senior national team are struggling in international tournaments, their juniors are expected to spearhead Indonesia’s team at next week’s World Junior Championships in Taiwan.

    The Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) sent 20 shuttlers to Taoyuan City for the event, which runs Oct. 28 to Nov. 6, and expects at least individual gold medals from boys singles and girls doubles.

    With China absent from the tournament for unspecified reasons, Indonesia also has a good chance to lift the Suhandinata Cup in the team event, but head coach Bambang Supriyanto said the focus was on individuals.

    “We have a better chance on winning gold in individual events, so we’ll put our efforts toward making sure of that,” Bambang said on Wednesday.

    Girls doubles pair Suci Rizki Andini and Tiara Rosalia Nuraidah will be the country’s best bet as they won the Asian Youth Under-19 Championships in Lucknow, India, in July.

    ...Bambang said he believed the pair could clinch the title, especially with Chinese shuttlers playing in the Asian Championships. “Right now they are the best girls doubles [pair] in the world. I have no doubt about that,” he said.

    ...While the PBSI did not set a target for girls singles, Elizabeth Purwaningtyas has her own ambitions. “I want to reach at least the last eight. I was able to do that in India,” she said.

    Not expected if he defeated by Hayom easily in the Indonesian GPG 2011 last week.
    And CJ still tough opponent for Tommy.. But, of course we hope that Tommy can be like Sho Sasaki overcome CJ!
    Good luck to Tommy

    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.
    Finally now PBSI realise it!!

    “All of our women’s singles [shuttlers] are outside top 30.

    PBSI should start to send them to more IC and GP event first, to gain more confidence and consistency. INA WS only can create upset without any consistency on keep beating the higher rank players.

    So, practically for the Olympics qualification, Team INA is banking on Tontowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir and perhaps Nova Widianto/Vita Marissa (if they can qualify).

    Thanks for the information...
    I am glad that finally Fran and Ricky get new patners...
    I have seen several peformances of Fran/Pia, and I may say that in every match Fran works very very hard to cover the court...
    And Ricky, his performance at mixed team final of the Universiade Games was very great... He has very good fighting spirit and could cover Shendy that looked a bit nerveous...
