    i saw him playing on court in Jkt during INA Challenge. He's tall and when he smashes.... BANG! it's so sharp and fast. His net play is also considerably smooth compared to other players around his age and level.

    Further news from the local media: He's advancing his participation level to GP and SS tourneys soon after the INA Challenge. He's looking forward to join INA Pelatnas sometime soon; he was actually being offered to join already last year but he refused it because he didn't feel ready yet to take up the challenge.

    Looking at how he plays, I have big hope for him. Additionally, he has no injury until now (not like most INA players who have some injuries even since their early ages)

    Probably a good thing in declining to join Pelatnas. For one reason or another (most probably money related), the 2nd and 3rd tier player there rarely got the opportunity to play..... Djarum has been much better in sending players to play at various tourneys.

    You are always the sober/pessimistic one.

Do you know which tourney Taufik was already playing in when he was 20 yrs young?? Sure, you can expand & test Hayom's talent, experience, winning mentality, type of strategy for at least 1 more yr, playing in International Challenge, GP or National Circuit type tourneys. But what's next after that 1 yr ends? Are we expecting him to keep playing in those type of tourneys? Or are we expecting him to move up the ladder and challenge the big boys in GP Gold and SS type tourneys??.....Sooner or later he has to move up and face stiffer competitions..that's the bottom line.

    Default ^^A sober...pessimistic one???..^^

    ..hardly, i may say (if you re-read the post again). I'm just putting forth the reality and what he (PBSI or whoever his management entity is) should be thinking abt. It's for their own benefit (to an extent INA badminton) and hiscareer.
    Or would you prefer him to just continually compete in the National circuits, International, Challenges type tourneys??..

    When everyone else is optimistic, the realistic one sounds pessimistic...

    I think they are called "political pundits".

    actually, he has got one GP tourney and 2 International challenges.
    I think, he has to get another 2-3 GP tourneys first and gain another experiences in GP Gold tourneys. Like what he had done. He joined some international challenges before winning such tourney. and also joined some GP tourneys (may be just 2-3 GP tourneys) until he could win it in Australia GP. Now, he will join also in Taipei GP Gold (higher rank competition), let us hope he can gain another experience.

    IMHO, Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka should feature in at least GP Level & GP Gold Level tourneys, with a couple of nearby SS events next year. He needs to improve his ranking to at least top 25 first before he can compete in the main draw of the SS event. That's the most important first-target. What's the use of registering him for the SS events only for him to lose in the first round ???

    According to an interview with him, for the remaining of this year, he will participate in:
    Yonex-Sunrise Vietnam Open GP 2009
    and Yonex Open Hong-Kong Super Series 2009 -- not sure if he can qualify for main draw. If he can, it will be a good experience for him.
