    I second that. This pair is getting better everyday.

    INA's gold medal hopes hinge obviously on Markis/Hendra (MD) and Butet/Towi (XD). Bona/Ahsan could possibly join the party depending on their progress over the next 9 months. I think most would agree these are the only medal contenders (let alone gold medal).

    Sorry to say, MS, WS and WD look extremely bleak.

    Haha, you are extremely optimistic for the INA WS players... good for you.

    Now, the reality. Choose from: WYH, WX, WSX, WL, JYJ, LX, LXR, CSC, Schenk, Tine, Rat, TTY, Saina. I think that pretty much closes the book on an INA medal.

    No lah, i mean if INA WS can win the bronze medal considered good achievement already lah. But anyway, who expect MKY to win bronze medal in OG 2008? I believe that even that time not so many are expecting her to pass Tine Baun or win against Saina when trailing 3-11 in 3rd set i just hope for the best lah.

    Yup agree madbad, our contender for gold medal is only Towi/Butet, Kido/Hendra and Bona/Ahsan. But i think Greysia/Meiliana should be a good contender for bronze medal.

    I'm not sure if Kido/Hendra will even qualified to London. Towi/Butet still can't beat top chinese pairs at this moment. Bona/Ahsan is still inconsistent.

    I see the better chance at the moment is Towi/Butet. They have beaten all the top pairs. After that they are having a slump, losing some to those who can not qualify for Olympic. But in the grand final SS, they seem to be better, losing to the top 2 Chinese pairs by slim margin.

    But with failure, then they will learn. I would be more afraid if they keep winning and the no1 pair.

    As for Bona/Ahsan, yet to win a Super Series title so hard to imagine whether they can win Olympic gold as a pair who only won GP gold titles.

    I think, the most realistic target is just can Indonesia maintain any medal in badminton on Olympic London 2012.

    Because on the last super series 2011, Indonesia got beaten so badly. None of the player advance through semifinal.

    Their BEST hope lies in their Mixed Doubles with Natsir being the one and only star player to carry Indonesia forward. I always have a feeling China won't win the Mixed Doubles because none of the Chinese girls are as good as Gao Ling except Natsir herself

    One good question though.

    With Taufik playing **** lately, do you think he will be allowed to play for Indonesia since they could alternatively deploy Tommy Sugiarto and Rumbaka in MS. They also stand an equal chance to qualify with their future rankings.

    Nothing is guaranteed by CHN has the best chance to win OLY12 XD. I bet you anything that CHN will win the XD and that Natsir/Ahmad won't. Only the DEN pair has a chance, and they probably has to go through 2 CHN pairs to win, not impossible but tough.

    MS : very hard. Lin Dan, Lee Chong Wei, Chen Long even Peter Gade and Chen Jin are better than Taufik Hidayat and Simon Santoso
    MD : Very Hard. CY/FHF, JJS/LYD, MB/CM even KSH/YYS and CB/GZ can beat indonesian continent
    WS : almost impossible. no one of indonesian WS on top ten even hard to only qualifier
    WD : very hard. CHN has crazy double i think the two CHN double (i can say that WX/YY and TQ/ZY has 70 % chance to win OG, 30% is other) even indonesia has MJ/GP or VM/Nm even NK/AF.
    XD : golden oportunities to tontowi/lilyana even still hard to beat ZN/ZZ, XC/MJ, and JFN/CP.

    Towi/Butet just need more consistency esp Towi need to cut down his errors and not easily get panic. If i am not mistaken, so far only Towi/Butet could beat ZN/ZYL and CX/MJ in a row in straight games in a tourney. Not to mention Towi/Butet trashed JFN/CP in world champs, but it was few months ago. They are not consistent now. In last encounter, Towi/Butet who are coming without a coach at Super Series Final almost beat ZN/ZYL in straight games(they threw away big lead in first game) eventually lost in rubber games, also lost to CX/MJ so tightly. Let's see later, hope gold medal for them

    Agree.. Stil recall when AG 2010.. No one expecting Kido/Hendra to win any medal there, after lost to German pair in French Open. But guess what, Kido/Hendra won the gold medal and all for the so called 'top pairs' bite the dust. Also when OG 2008, who expect Kido/Hendra to beat Koo/Tan? Koo/Tan hold a 4-0 record against Kido/Hendra, KinDra lost all the matches in straight games. But in OG 2008 Kido/Hendra beat Koo/Tan in straight games. And They win the gold medal. Perhaps Kido/Hendra are born to win major titles their game are so unpredictable. Who knows they could just suddenly won OG 2012? their title is complete already.. If they win OG 2012.. They will become the most successfull MD pair ever..

    agree with you mikss, but at this moment, Kido/Hendra still trying to qualify olympic 2012. They are not qualified at this moment. Losing to Ahsan/Bona and Alvent/Hendra.

    Any Indonesians here around willing to share some PBSI insider news to this channel? I am curious whether Taufik Hidayat will be even selected to participate in London this year after he had a poor run last year.

    Are they planning to feature Tommy Sugiarto and Santoso in MS?
