    Taufik Coach (Mulyo) said that he won in 3 sets because there was something wrong with his legs:

    "Pelatih Taufik, Mulyo Handoyo menyatakan, Taufik kehilangan set pertama karena kondisi kakinya kurang fit sebelum pertandingan. "Sehingga tadi dia bermain agak berat," kata Mulyo, Kamis (5/3) malam waktu Birmingham, usai mendampingi Taufik. " (KOMPAS - http://olahraga.kompas.com/read/xml/2009/03/06/0236478/taufik.dan.bonaahsan.ke.perempat.final..)

    2009 All England: Will Taufik get to challenge Lin Dan?

    .
    So... Today, Friday 6-Mar-2009, at the Quarter-Finals, Taufik will face Peter Gade.
    Taufik still has to defeat PG and then LCW/Ville Lang first, before he gets to challenge LD.

    TH is saving his best for last (i.e. LD). :D I hope he remember that he has to reach there first:p

    .."his legs' condition is not fit enough??":confused:..I thought he mentioned, on his website, that he's been preparing & training for this AE?? i hope that's a result of him over-training himself...:p

    TH wasn't moving as quickly as Smith was, and he wasn't diving for smashes either..

    Despite his "leg problem", he had no significant difficulty in handling Mr. Smith.

    The next victim of TH's new tricks is Peter Gade....

    I think losing the first set and generally playing pretty badly constitutes a fairly "significant difficulty".

    Tomorrow, TH will show the world how to play Badminton with Salsa's style:D

    This is a newly invented style of play never played before. Please watch TH's waist movement....watch it very closely...you will see the effect to the overall match!!!:D

    Indra, please stop making up stuff. I saw Taufik play the last two days and he had nothing that I haven't seen from him before. Besides, that back brace of his is hardly going to help him to shake his hips, is it?

    I'm not hoping for the worst, but see all INA players one by one down due to injuries... start from SDK, Bona, and we have Nova/Lilyan and Taufik but remember we still have 2 more days... Bona injured on the way to QF ... I'm afraid one of them will be injured on the way to SF and on the way to Final....


    Taufik will need some spa today... please recommend him the best spa in London...wkwkwkkw:D:D

    Taufik has reached the stage I hoped he could. Now we get TH vs PG, TH/PG vs LCW and TH/PG/LCW vs LD :D (most likely). The perfect All England!

    Your astrological sign says you will have a career as a politician, spin artist or promoter. Take your pick
