Her priority is to use the 6 mths period to heal her knees and then start to build her confidence back by winning smaller titles first. Let's face it, she WILL NOT WIN ANY SS titles at her current state. So, why exert herself to risk of worse injury???

badMania, a question.
Hendra Gunawan and Vita are all in the National Team? They played XD in Taipei. I knew from you that players of the National Team cannot play in two categories. Thanks.

Tahir: Coach, Hero, Badminton Pioneer
As if Indonesia’s badminton title drought was not bad enough, the sport suffered another blow on Friday.
Muhammad Tahir Djide, one of the country’s premier coaches, died early on Friday morning at Hasan Sadikin Hospital in Bandung, West Java, due to complications from liver cancer.
Tahir, who was 70 years old, underwent surgery for his cancer on Aug. 10. He is survived by a wife and two children.
“He was diagnosed with cancer in early August and was looking better after the surgery. But on Wednesday, his condition worsened so we brought him back to the hospital until the day he died,” said his daughter, Sri Rahayu Aprilita Bugiwati.
Born in Sidrap, South Sulawesi, on April 14, 1939, Tahir was one of the driving forces behind Indonesia’s rise to prominence in badminton. He revolutionized training in the country after his appointment as national team coach in 1971, convincing shuttlers that talent and skill alone were not enough to be successful and introducing modern physical training.
His teams in the 1970s were known as the “Magnificent Seven” and produced three consecutive Thomas Cup titles from 1973 to 1979. Among his charges were men’s singles shuttlers Rudy Hartono (eight-time All England champion) and Lim Swie King (three-time All England champion) and Iie Sumirat, as well as men’s doubles pairs Tjuntjun and Johan Wahyudi, and Christian Hadinata and Ade Chandra.
Tahir helped Icuk Sugiarto win the men’s singles world championship in 1983. World champions Ardy Bernardus Wiranata and Taufik Hidayat also benefited from his tutelage.
“He was a great coach,” said Christian, the current Indonesian national team coach. “Not only a coach, he was also a father, a friend, a teacher for all athletes.
“That’s why, despite his hard discipline and sometimes harsh training, all the shuttlers respected and loved him so much.”
“It’s because of him that I became a coach after retiring. He taught me a lot about how to become a great coach, just like he was,” he added.
Tahir’s achievements were recognized by the Indonesian government when President Abdurrahman Wahid presented him with the Mahaputra Pratama medal in August 2000, officially making him a national hero. Tahir retired on March 1, 2008, ending a 37-year career, but he still found time to start BM 77, a badminton club for children in Bandung.
Following Friday prayers, Tahir was buried in Cikutra Heroes Cemetery in Bandung.

I heard from a credible source that GlobalTV is negotiating for the rights to air as many Super Series live broadcasts as possible. Thus, INA badminton fans can watch more live badminton in 2010... I think this will further escalate another badminton boom in INA... INA have always relied more on 'outstanding natural talents' to pop up...
By 2020, we will get plenty of stars... Be patient INA fans... Rome was not built in one day...

I would suggest for PBSI to send some of their players, esp those that need titles badly to send their top-team to the Dutch Open GP and then followed by Denmark SS; rather than sending to Denmark & French SS.
Players I would like to see winning titles at GP level:
1. Simon Santoso -- no title since Chinese-Taipei Open GP Gold 2008.
2. Adriyanti Firdasari & Maria Kristin Yulianti -- no titles to show for at GP level and above.
3. Rian Sukmawan/Yonathan Suryatama Dasuki -- no title since Dutch Open GP 2007.
4. Nitya Krishinda Maheswari/Greysia Polii -- time for Grace to win some titles.
5. Devin Lahardi/Lita Nurlita -- title at GP level is welcomed.

^^You should start reading..^^
..from the 1st page of this thread..
*Just a hint, badMania & Sandy have been two of the longest active INA members in here and both surely have followed the INA baddy scene for quite a long time; esp. Sandy.
The others, CLELY, Krisna and Hauge (huangkwokhau) are regular contributors. Some of them even have connections to the players.

by the way, it seems like the pair of mona santoso/vita marissa actually can go far and many tournaments. They just need to be more consistent especially vita marissa. just Imo
