I knew he could! haha...
Devin Lahardi/Yunita Tetty have just beaten their opponent 21-13, 21-16 and will face the top seed Robert Mateusiak/Nadiezda Kostiuczyk in the semi-finals tomorrow.
Three more matches involving INA players coming up....
Good to hear Devin/Tetty made it through to the semifinal. Hope they can win tomorrow and show that Indonesia is still one of the superpowers in Badminton. Geez, I wish I can watch them play.
Hendra A. Gunawan/Joko Riyadi have beaten Mike Beres/William Milroy in straight sets 23-21, 21-14 and will meet Mathias Boe/Joachim Fischer Nielsen in the semi-finals tomorrow. Hendra/Joko were cruising in the first set until it was 17-11. Then, the Canadian pair fought back and managed to tie the score at 19-19. They even had game points at 20-19 and 21-20. Luckily, Hendra/Joko won the set in deuce 23-21.
The second set was much better as the INA pair never let slip the advantage once they are more than 4-5 points ahead. I guess they have learnt a lesson in the first set that the opponent can still catch up even if u are 6 points ahead
The WD match between Rani Mundiasti/Endang Nur Sugianti and Kamila Augustyn/Nadiezda Kostiuczyk turns out to be a thriller. The Polish pair were quick to establish a healthy 6-0 lead in the first set and there were no turning back. The INA pair was once within 2 points, but, they lost the set 17-21.
In the second set, the Polish pair was once again starting brightly with a 3-0 lead, but, the INA pair didn't let them go further. They eventually managed to catch up and 12-12 and were ahead 14-12 for the first time. The 2 points lead stayed till the end of the second set as they took it 21-19.
It's now rubber-set.
Does anyone have pictures? please.....
I hope Ronald Susilo wins the MS
The INA pair controlled the match from the very beginning of the rubber set as they were quick to establish a 7-2 lead. The lead extended to 18-11 and eventually Rani Mundiasti/Endang Nur Sugianti won the third set easily 21-12. They now have a chance to enter their second final.
In the MD, the Djarum pair Rian Sukmawan/Eng Hian were never in trouble as they beat Kristof Hopp/Ingo Kindervater 21-18, 21-17. The points were quite close in both sets but the Djarum pair was clearly superior. They will face a more formidable opponent in Michael Logosz/Robert Mateusiak tomorrow.
So, Team Pelatnas has won all its matches today...surprisingly. It's semi-finals tomorrow and there's a possibility that there will be an all-Indonesian final in the MD and all-Singaporean final in the MS. All the matches will be tough, except maybe for the WD pair. It will really be a great achievement if Team Pelatnas manages to have 4 finalists on Sunday!
