    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.

    Thumbs up 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.

    Thumbs up Prakash Padukone met his idol, Rudy Hartono, again: 06-Jun-2011

    .
    And after they have met, they made these comments;

    * "I still cherish those wins. Even though Rudy was past his prime, it still wasn't easy to beat him. To beat a player of his stature was very special because it came on odd occasions," Padukone told MiD DAY

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

    .
    In the article below, we find Prakash Padukone with his idol, Rudy Hartono, in a photo (on 06-Jun-2011);

    http://www.rediff.com/sports/slide-s...d/20110608.htm

    And parts of that article say;

    * Legendary Rudy Hartono inspired Prakash Padukone to greatness.
    * Prakash said "Rudy also made me realise the importance of physical fitness".

    .
    If BC is to conduct a poll for "Who is the most popular player (currently playing)?"; I won't be surprised that Taufik Hidayat gets the majority of the votes.
