got success in 1st target...
2nd target is Sudirman Cup... hmm... unlikely.
but we have some interesting improvement in each department.
Linda, Tontowi/Butet, Sony Dwi Kuncoro, Hendra/Ahsan,
I think, 3 of them are capable in delivering points.
Silver medal will be a very good achievement as i think semifinal is realistic target.

Even not too much, I have started to feel a good progress in Indonesia squad. I think the positive intention of the PBSI board also welcomed by the players and coaches. hopefully this will continue to rise, there is a long way to go my friend. keep the spirit

My opinion is that INA can do with a lot of improvement in MS. The talent is very much there, but it needs to be channelled now. Hayom and Tommy need to step up and fulfill their potential, especially Hayom. He's too good to be allowed to go the Tago way....
I really don't expect much in terms of consistently top-level performances from Sony or even Simon for that matter. Their physical issues won't allow them to be consistent finals or SF candidates. I hope I'm wrong abotu this, but everything points to what I just wrote. The other guys should make use of their presence at the top as a kind of temporary protection, and really up their game and especially mental aspect of their game. My 2c...

I think there will be improvements in all disciplines, not just MS or WS.
I am expecting to see improvements in WD in the coming months.
However, I think the depth of the talents are limited. Hayom and Tommy can be the next Simon but I think that probably the best they will achieve. The younger players, depending how hard they trained and how good the development, might achieve more.

It's so pity watching INA Team vs Thai in Axiata semifinal.
Like Ricky subagja said, if they must lost they must showed their best play first, Players should be ready to win whenever and wherever they play. And Ivana Lie said players should show be more profesional.
And none of that attitude showed last night, especially from world class players Tontowi/Butet....

i could smell some improvement on INA WS under the hand of LCS! esp Linda and Bella.
really hope LCS could transform Hanna and Ruselly into world class players too.

3 ina representation in SS final, i think ina is on the track to get back to glory. Hope can peak at OG 2016!

Anyone know why INA drop all players from US and Canada GP?
I think US and Canada GP are good place to earn point as there is not many top ten players playing there. Too bad for ms young players and newly groom double players....
06-22-2013, 10:08 PM #3089
Just notice that Indonesia put the most players in Top 100 WS with 11 players followed by China with 9 players and Japan with 8 players. However, none of INA WS players in Top 10 world WS....so sad.

They pulled out of USA open because the visa is not ready, I think. Always same problem.

Badminton: Indonesia begins its ascent once more
Indonesia’s Tommy Sugiarto reacts after winning against Thailand’s Boonsak Ponsana during their men’s singles final at the Singapore Open on June 23, 2013. Sugiarto won 20-22, 21-5, 21-17. (Getty Images)
Those who followed the last few Superseries closely would not have missed out on a remarkable fact: Indonesia is rising once more.
The latest evidence of this came on Sunday, when the Indonesians returned home with three titles from the Singapore Superseries. Three titles from three finals. Just as important as what they won was the manner in which they lost too, in the days leading up to the finals.
Consider Indonesian Lindaweni Fanetri, who was No.62 in October last year but has shot up to No.13 last week. Fanetri is 24 years old, and has only now been showing glimpses of what she can accomplish. Until the early months of this year, she was competing at the level of the Grand Prix, and losing to second-rung players.
Something changed this year. Suddenly, the list of her victims included names like World Champion Wang Yihan and Saina Nehwal.
Take Tommy Sugiarto, who until last year was a second-rung player unlikely to challenge for the big prizes. On Sunday, we saw him winning the Singapore Open in his first Superseries final. His progression has been noteworthy – a player who struggled in the 20s of the world badminton rankings has shot up to No.13.
Or take the case of Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka, who upset No.4 Du Pengyu in the semis of the Indonesia Open; Yunus Alamsyah, who outlasted fifth seed Kenichi Tago in the first round; or the unheralded Belaetrix Manuputi, who pushed Li Xuerui to three games in the Singapore Open.
These are but a few examples. Nearly all the top Indonesians have been showing tremendous progress. The gold standard for measuring this is their performance against the Chinese: Sugiarto, for the first time, thrashed second seed Chen Long in the first round of the Indonesia Open – just a fortnight after two straight losses to the same player in the Sudirman Cup.
The doubles too has shown marked improvement. The new combination of Mohd Ahsan and Hendra Setiawan has played unbelievably well, winning the last two Superseries and destroying world-class opposition like Cai Yun/Fu Haifeng of China and Lee Yong Dae/Ko Sung Hyun on the way.
These results are no accident. Earlier this year, the Indonesian association (PBSI) announced a revamp of its coaching structure, seeking to get as many accomplished names on board as possible. For too long there was a big gap between the administration and the views of former greats. As part of the revamp, legends like Rexy Mainaky and Joko Suprianto were asked to join the effort. Mainaky, who had had a fruitful stint in Malaysia, and had just taken over the coaching programme of Philippines, left his assignment there and returned to his homeland.
At the Sudirman Cup (World Mixed Team Championships), the only team to challenge China was Indonesia in the quarterfinals. While China won its semi-finals and finals with identical 3-0 margins, it survived a brief scare against Indonesia, having to recover from 1-2 down to win 3-2.
A resurgent Indonesia can only mean great news for badminton. For the last decade China had overwhelmed all opposition, and had even appeared bored at times with its prowess. Indonesia was falling behind, and with the exit of its icons like Taufik Hidayat, and the total vacuum in women’s singles, there appeared no hope in sight. Hopefully, Indonesia’s revival will pass the test of time.
