Luluk and Alvernt were still pretty upset and they did not train today..I hope that they train for Olympics...

I don't know why, but something inside me tell me that we should forget winning TC this year... Am I too pessimistic?
Indeed LuVent haven't shown good achievements so far. But they've proven that they are capable to beat top pairs, plus the fact that they're permanent pair. By replacing them with this new scratch pair (based only on a tournament), is somehow unacceptable.
I hope that they won't quit Pelatnas, that's all. Our 2nd tier MDs are not too strong for now...

That''s is the problem when we have a lot of good players and we have to choose among them...there must be pros and cons.
However, PBSI's choice of fielding the young pairs is also good in the long-term. This will also serve as a mental exercise for the young pairs ahead of the olympics.
I think PBSI has made the right decision at this stage.
Luluk/Alven, in my opinion, have been inconsistent recently and their style of play seem to be a bit easy to read.
Against KKK /TBH, It would be too risky to field the young pairs. Chandra/Nova would probably be the right pairs to face Rexy's boys.
To face the young and fast 2nd/ Korean pairs, Joko riyadi will be the right pairs to face them.
In critical (do or die) matches, I would prefer Chandra/Nova....because mental toughness will play the most important role.
We never know what PBSI will actually do until the last minute...
It is possible that Chandra will be fielded with Joko Riyadi...you never know...I guess....it is a Chandra factor here...he is indeed one of the most dangerous double player in the world...he can be paired with any player...and any pair involving Chandra will be very dangerous and it makes the opponents nervous....

However, regarding the idea of pairing Joko and Candra, well, uhm, we all saw what happened last yr during the Sudirman Cup when Markis was paired with Candra....
I still think, at the end, it'll come down to how the MS players perform (esp. Taufik and Sony)..If either of both should falter, it'll leave a big pressure for their MD pairs.

IN QF if againts KOR ina will get 2MS (Sony and Taufik) and 1 MD (from Uncles in 2 MD)
if againts MAL 2MS (Taufik and Simon) and 1 MD (Uncles)
STILL GREAT TEAM, and for me Much better than unstable LUKVENT

Just wonder if this will give bad mentally effect for LUVENT since they will play in OG 08. Hopefully it will never happen..

Vanguard, this is the Thomas/Uber finals, not any regular tournament. Sweeping MD is the key to INA's target for success.
In 1988 a green Susi Susanti failed to kill off China's great Han Aiping despite leading one game and with 5 matchpoints. I know, I was there ......
Thus I have always had more faith in established players ...... you can experiment in the qualifiers but never in the finals. Whether Sutiyoso dislikes Luluk or not, it should not become personal to the detriment of INA's chances.
