No doubt taufik would have Joko as his idol.
But in terms of playing style I think he is more in the Hartono, Liem Swie King and Alan mould.
Control the net, force the lift , bang down the return or a steep drop. A little unlike his predecessors in that
he doesn't play doubles but still very strong in the midcourt exchanges and drives.

Prakash set to meet idol Rudy Hartono
And guess who Prakash Padukone will be meeting today;
"He has always been my idol and I've always tried to model my game after him," Padukone told on meeting the former eight-time All-England Championships winner after a gap of eight long years.
Former world champion Hartono has been invited jointly by the Maharashtra Badminton Association and the National Sports Club of India to conduct a special coaching camp for a select group of youngsters and the organizers used the opportunity to reunite the master shuttler with another legend who modelled his game around him.

* "He was also much younger than me," Hartono quipped.
