    Default Korean Open 2008 withdrawals

    Taufik Hidayat
    Maria Kristin

    Been told that XXF may withdraw ( not sure 100% yet, hope she can make it after slipping on toilet floor)

    nope, the newspapers here don't cover badminton very much, as far as news goes, it's a minority sport.

    TH is having back-injury....maybe he want to stay home to treat the injury...

    TH also said he would concentrate in 3SS and Thomas Cup only...the 3 SS are MO, AE and probably Swiss ...and AE 08 will be the most previlage tournament for him this year....becos he havent won AE B4!

    The other reason is he knows he can't win with his current form, simple as that.

    This is purely my opinion about Taufik and hope it doesn't offend any Taufik's fan. We all know how talented he is but as he gets older and trains less, he's no longer the same player he once was feared by many. Even Lin Dan no longer think Taufik is his main obstacle. Taufik wanted to concentrate in All England as this is the only "big" one missing in his resume but I honestly think he will not go far in AE as so many top notch players are aiming to do well here and they're most probably working much harder than the flamboyant Taufik. Taufik is still being respected by many mainly due to his past achievement as World Champion 2005 and Olympic Champion 2004.
    Taufik can pick whatever tournaments he like to attend and give whatever reasons for attending but can he actually regain his old form and win? My answer is NO, he can't.

    He still can ( remember Peter gade or Kennith can still win even your Wong Choong Han can still win)...currently he is doing the program to increase his fitness...he has back injury while training back home...getting worst after playing Park...Yes..TH does not like to play in Korea...also he will play fewer tournaments and concentrate on AE and Olympics...I still believe that he can win some tournaments.....

    Is that an old back injury coming back? He's been having back injuries since just before 2006 Thomas Cup.
