Legendary Indonesian shuttler Rudy Hartono has said that Indonesia is “dreaming” in thinking it can win the biennial Thomas and Uber Cup this May and that there are no such thing as instant results in sport.
“So, a repeat of 1996? Dream on!”
Why so mean?...people dream also cannot

hi there guys, does someone know if Nova Widianto has retired yet ? I haven't seen him for while on courts, and he's isn't partering Vita Marissa in Birmingham next week....
A friend of mine told me he retired and may be now working as a coach, perhaps in TH's academy.

The current our Junior are more promising than past (exception GS, we need more extra work)
The local competition are held regularly like Sirnas helped our upcoming players grow up better and better, thanks to Djarum as sponsor of this event.
Compared to Indonesian Tennis (PELTI) who held National Circuit regularly in the past, we can see so many Asian Champion os Asian Games winner from this sport : Lita Lim, Lanny Kaligis, Atet Wiyono, Gondo Wijoyo, Yustejo Tarik, Hadiman and followed by the players who born from National Circuit : Tintus, Suharyadi, Suzanna, Yayuk Basuki, Wynne Prakusya, Angelique Widjaja etc.
Last few years, we didn't see PELTI take attention for it, so we can see how the outcome.

Indeed....Djarum deserves to be recognized as it attempts to revive the competitive environment of the domestic circuit starting in 2009, after it had been dormant for a long long time. I also started following Sirnas in 2010 and have witnessed talents being born in most of the disciplines, except for WS, where we have to admit we still lack the talents there as Sandy had mentioned in the previous post.
The Djarum's GD victory at German Junior is also a testament that we can produce solid GD pairs.

Liliana Natsir and Tantowi Ahmad made front page headlines at Jawapos news paper today. Im happy to see that, cos so far from what ive been told and witnessedwi and witnessed, media coverage is very limited and too little considering what badminton has its the number one sport in the country that can provide victories in international event.
I hope there are some friends from the media that will read this: Thank you for making Butet and Towi on your front page today. But please put more news coverage on badminton in the future. I trust that there are so many Indonesians that wanting to see and hear about more on television, news, radio, news paper etc. I have travelled from big cities as well as country side, and I can say the passion is great, the mass is large, and the hunger is unfed as ever. In comparison, media has spent too much coverage on football/soccer. European football is like never stops, while just a few days before Butet/Towi victory at AE, our national team was beaten 0 - 10 by unknown Bahrain, and it was shown LIVE on the TV. PSSI is in a total mess, to a point where our president had to make a comment about it. WHAT A SHAME. Im sure that if Butet/Towi match was shown on TV it would much more joy to the people, so why not starts from now?? I believe there are also tons of sponsors and advertiser that are really interested in promoting their products through badminton coverage, just like they way the sponsored football/soccer. It is the media jobs to create that atmosphere, to make badminton more appealing to big companies. I believe if we can share our dreams and work towards it, Indonesian badminton in not to far distance will bring greater joy to the nation.
Thats all my appeal

My personal feeling when watching Towi/Butet won their XD Gold Medal in AE2012 is the same with when watching Kido/Hendra won 2008 OG Gold medal several years back...We have not won the major title for so long, it took them 4 years.....What an achievement....

At this stage everything is lined up and ready to go, from local coaches, the hall, sponsors, admin, schools teachers, councils, local media and so on. I just need to put them together in place and make sure this club to be will be there for long run, thats I think will be the harder challenge. But hopefully everything goes well and itcan grow even bigger so that we can copy the concept across Indonesia.
So I pray to God this dream to keep

Badminton : Indonesia's Olympic Chase Rolls On In Basel
Ami Afriatni | March 13, 2012
Having broken the country’s long drought of top-flight badminton titles, Tontowi Ahmad and Liliyana Natsir have shifted their focus to upholding Indonesia’s streak of Olympic gold medals.
Tontowi and Liliyana’s victory last weekend at the All England Open, one of badminton’s most prestigious tournaments, ended Indonesia’s run of 33 years without a mixed doubles title at that event. The last victorious pair from the country was Christian Hadinata and Imelda Wiguna in 1979.
“I’m proud and happy to win the All England and end the streak without a mixed doubles title,” Liliyana said. “Hopefully, this triumph will motivate me for the best achievement at the upcoming Olympics.”

Hopefully the newly-crowned AE Champ will continue their good run in Basel this week
