Coach Fang Kaixiang, who together with Tang Xianhu and Hou Jiachiang complete China's legendary trio MS, said that INA would have killed them in all 4 MD matches because CHN had to rely on these same 3 gentlemen for MD as well as MS... Back then, the Thomas Cup games were played in 9 matches: 4 MD + 5 MS matches... So, Coach Fang said that CHN would have to win all 5 MS matches against INA... which was very hard to do after the same Chinese players had to play extra MD duties against awesome opponents like TT-JW and CH-AC...

[quote=Krisna;1174310]Ok ok... Oh, by the way, I think it is difficult for China to bet INA in the early to mid 1970s... Aside from Rudy Hartono, we had Muljadi, Iie Sumirat, Christian Hadinata [1972 All England MS Runner Up] and then the young and up-and-coming Liem Swie King in MS while our MD [Tjun Tjun-Johan Wahyudi and Christian Hadinata-Ade Chandra] are virtually unbeatable...
That I agree and that is what I said in my post that INA was supreme in the 70s but CHN would only get better and TC would be more competitive.

I saw this article in the Indonesian Cinema website: http://indonesiancinema.blogspot.com...-lim-swie.html
A Film inspired by the Badminton Legend, Liem Swie King
Directed by Ale Sihasale
Ari Sihasale, the third director to film a product of Alenia Pictures -the company that he built with his wife, Nia Zulkarnaen. The man who is familiarly called Pak Ale, is ready to direct the film titled KING shooting start with the schedule on February 6.
According to Ale, the decision for him to become the director is not only because of cost-effectiveness. For him, this is great opportunity to display his ability. Ale is more confident because he received a lot of support from many parties. The inspiration of this film came from the success of Indonesian badminton living legend, Liem Swie King.
"When we mention the name of the world's badminton greats, Liem Swie King is one of them," he said. However, Ale noted, the movie KING is not about the autobiography of Liem Swie King. But only about the spirit of Liem that made him become a top champion, using his famous weapon King Smash. "And then, I thought, why don't I become the director?" Ale continued.
Ale hopes this movie can be a motivation and an inspiration for many people. "Before making this film, we had a lot of research and asked him about how he (Liem, Red) could become a successful champion. A person's goal may be anything, but in order to reach it, that person must struggle through. We must live with the spirit of a Liem Swie King," Ale explained.
As a reference, Ale watched a non-commercial films made in Iran that was regarded as outstanding in many film festivals. "It's a little exercise I did on the side," said Ale.
Liem did not decline when Nia & Ale ask his permission to take his story as the source of this film, that will star Wulan Guritno and some very young actors. "I see that the message in the film is glorious. I feel good about it," said the former All England champion.
Liem considered the timing and momentum of this film fits the need of the times. Today's badminton achievement of Indonesia can be described as declining. The film KING, according to him, have similar character-building message for the Indonesian people that to achieve something there has to be a lot of struggle. "Success cannot come easily," advised the man who was born in Kudus on February 28th, 1956.
On whether he will participate in acting, Liem is still reluctant to tell us anything. What he did admit was that Ale and Nia had visited his house in Kudus, Central Java. Kudus, the city where Liem Swie King began working towards his dream, will be among the shooting locations of the movie. "The rest we shoot in East Java; Bondowoso, Banyuwangi and Situbondo," added Ale.
Liem did not require the film to show a particular life-story he needs the world to know. Moreover, he said, the film is not an autobiography of himself. "If it is my own biography, I should just write my own book," said the 1978-1979-1981 All England champion.
Nia said, badminton and Liem serve as the inspiration for the film King because our country does not have a film about the sport. "In fact, badminton is a world sport and Indonesia often can waive its flag at the most prestigious events," said the woman whose previous successfull films were Denias (Rythm on Top of the Clouds) and Fun Vacation.

INA will always have talents in badminton. The problem is whether these players stay long enough to become a major force.....
