Thanks To 'The Rebels'
Finally, it was left to the rebels to fly the Indonesian flag at the 2009 India Open!
But for Taufik Hidayat, Flandy Limpele and Vita Marissa, Indonesia would have returned home empty-handed.
What a splendid irony!
The 'official' players didn't even get noticed.
I wonder what the PBSI is thinking now

Boss, first of all, the Pelatnas players sent to the India Open GP Gold are not even our first team players. Not to mention, the bulk of the players just experienced their first senior tourney, having been called up only early this year.
The most experienced player is Maria Kristin Yulianti, who just recovered from a serious knee injury. The second is Tommy Sugiarto, who hasn't reached SF until this week (consider this week his best achievement as a professional shuttler so far).
1 MD -- lost to their more experienced senior...no big deal.
2 WDs are raw and inexperienced -- both reach R16 losing to the top-seed and a CHN pair as expected.
2 XDs are new pairs, with Akhmad Tantowi and Mohd Rijal having the experience -- both delivered, esp Towi/Richi in reaching SF.
To expect a title or two from these bunch of players will be too much and we can also see that PBSI did not even set a target to them. Just try their best (which they did and exceeded expectations for a couple of them) and get some exposure. That's the message from the coaches!

INA (despite our massive mismanagement here and there) is still a very free country...

..and we shall keep track of those pairs' results in their subsequent tourneys, won't we??..
..Or one could say, if the big time players ala Taufik or LCW or Flandy & Vita didn't participate, maybe, just maybe those younger players could have a chance of lifting the big cheque, like what the CHN WD pair did..

no news about Rendra Wijaya
PBSI should consider to give alternatif way in Pelatnas
We prefer he stay in same champ with Frans Kurniawan as XD players in Pelatnas or as club's players

MAS' LCW and KKK & TBH aren't exactly "veterans"..well, at least not KKK & TBH..
KOR's LYD & JJS and LYD & LHJ aren't also exactly "veterans"..
All those players have some titles to show for..
INA's The Wild Child of Badminton, Flandy & Vita can be considered "veterans" already..How about INA's current crop of young players??..

No doubt, we want titles, but to expect them of the youngsters who are relatively raw to international tourneys will be too much eh? Give them 1 year to prove themselves in lower level tourneys and then we can judge.
Like Devin/Lita, given that they are already out there for more than 2 years and only 1 GP Gold title to show for, I think they are only good enough as a backup pair, not a top 5 pair material for sure.
Akhmad Tantowi will only turn 22 later this year, while Richi Puspita Dili is at most 21. Don't forget, we also have Mohd Ulinnuha/Jenna Gozali, both under 20 and already won 1 junior title to date. We will see them again in the Thailand Int Series at the end of April. In MD, we have Mohd Ulinnuha/Berry Angriawan, arguably INA's best junior pair at the moment, with 2 junior titles in Europe early this month.
These players will be INA's main pairs in MD and XD for the next few years.
