^^What is the possible penalty for a withdrawal??..^^
..well, if they do penalize the player, most likely Yonex will penalize them in some financial form.
Although, it seems like it doesn't make sense to penalize a player because of injury, does it??
But Yonex could counter and say, "it's written in the agreement" and the player should've taken care of his/her health better etc.

Phew...it was more of a relief than jubilation as Hendra Setiawan aptly said in the post-match interview after the World and Olympic Champions won their first title of the year in the Happy Suwon Badminton Asia Championships 2009 last week, despite the absence of top 10 pairs.
This year has been a very dramatic and testing period for him and Markis Kido, with Kido still feeling the effects of his injury even till now and that contract saga which nearly cost the pair to split up back in Feb. I am glad that they are still together as a pair. Can they help the INA team reach the Final of the Sudirman Cup and retain the World Championships later this year? We shall await...although I fear it will take more time for Kido's knees to recover fully. 1-2 SS titles (preferably the Singapore and Japan SS which they have yet to win) will be nice.
Special thanks to Hau-Ge for providing me with updates on the last 3 matches as I could only have limited access to the internet last week, with no access at all during the SF and F.

Kido was still not at his best in Korea. How bad actually is his injury?
I would rather have him concentrate in recovery, hopefully in time to defend the World Championship title. Besides, based on their ranking, Kido/Setiawan should still get a good seeding come the World Championship draw.

Indeed, they had no pts to defend from the Singapore SS and only 5040 pts from the INA SS. They should get the bulk of the 8462 pts from last year's Thomas Cup by playing at least 1-2 group matches in the Sudirman Cup.
Nevertheless, the 7,000 pts from the BAC are much welcomed and desparately needed, should they fail to defend the 4 huge winner points from the Olympics and 3 SS (total of 39,600 pts)

It's time to bump this thread
Finally, one Super Series title for Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan this year. It has certainly been a very testing period for the duo and this victory certainly provides a welcome respite and hopefully will propel them back to the no 1 ranking in the near future.
Kido/Hendra will still have to defend huge points from the Denmark and French SS victories last year (18,400 pts). One more title from the 2 European SS events will be needed to keep them in the top 4 ranking.
