Not only now, last time also fitness and stamina plays important part. Even 40 years ago, there is no gym in Indonesia but the players train themselves under hot sun, using anything, not just gym equipment.
In the end, it is players discipline in training their fitness level that can make difference. Sadly, not many top Indonesian players now have that discipline.
Meanwhile, the Chinese players are more discipline during this era.
On another topic, money(sponsor), I guess, influence many things in any sports nowadays. But how big the influence is something that is debatable.

Fitness is required in the chinese teams...
Just to be able to join the U19 team, besides being truly great at badminton, they have to be able to do 1500 double skips with a skipping rope, in 15 minutes. And i would guess that is just a part of the requirements.
