[h=1]Revitalised Indonesia a great concern, warns world No. 1[/h]http://thestar.com.my/sports/story.asp?file=/2013/6/25/sports/13282676&sec=sports
KUALA LUMPUR: Indonesia’s re-emergence as a badminton powerhouse is a great concern for world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei.
In the just-concluded Singapore Open, Indonesia clinched three titles with 25-year-old Tommy Sugiarto scoring a first in his career by winning the men’s singles crown. The other two titles were won by in-form Mohd Ahsan-Hendra Setiawan in the men’s doubles and the ever-dependable Ahmad Tantowi-Lilyana Natsir in the mixed doubles.
In Chong Wei’s absence, Malaysia’s best performer was Chong Wei Feng who lost to Boonsak Ponsana of Thailand in the quarter-finals. Two others – Daren and Mohd Arif Abdul Latif – were beaten in the first round.
It was even worse in the men’s doubles with Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem going out in the first round.
Chong Wei said yesterday the appointment of Rexy Mainaky as the high performance director could see Indonesia challenging for more honours in the future.
“Indonesia are doing well right now. Taufik Hidayat retired at the recent Indonesian Open and then Tommy won his first Super Series title on Sunday. The timing could not have been better. It was a good start for Tommy.
“The Indonesians now have several up-and-coming men’s singles players who are stepping out of the shadows of the seniors. Even Dionysius (Hayom Rumbaka) is doing well. We also saw some good results from their doubles department. I believe they are going to be a force again,” warned Chong Wei.
Last year, Indonesia returned home empty-handed for the first time from the London Olympics since badminton made it as an Olympic sport at the 1992 Barcelona Games. On top of that, they also failed to make the semi-finals for the first time in the Thomas Cup Finals.
Following Rexy’s resignation as Malaysia’s men’s doubles coach, the All-Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) quickly grabbed him to revive their fortunes.
Since his appointment in April, Indonesia have produced some excellent results. He made a number of crucial decisions, including recruiting former players to be coaches and officials and allowing the independent players to represent the country.
“Rexy was with us (for more than seven years). But since returning to Indonesia, there have been some positive changes there. It is important to have a leader who can oversee and manage the team. If the team is united, I am sure the players will also be encouraged to go the extra mile,” added the 30-year-old.
For Chong Wei, he hopes Daren and Wei Feng will step-up for the World Championships in Guangzhou, China, from Aug 5-11.
“Wei Feng’s performance is more stable now. He has been reaching the quarter-finals quite consistently but we hope he will be able to go further. Daren’s outing in Singapore was demoralising but I hope he will bounce back. He is already 26 and it is time for him to raise his level of performance.”
Now I know why Pak Gita got accepted to Harvard
It's only been less than a year and he has already managed to put things in order
Btw tagaba here, an ardent lurker of BC, maybe I'll start posting more frequently from now on
Welcome We do have a core bunch of ardent INA fans here, not to mention several linked to the new PBSI
Hai badMania thanks for the welcome
We do? I've always wondered how you people managed to get some insider info, so that's why
Anyway, it's heartening to see PBSI go to the right direction, hoping for a surprise or two in the upcoming WC
Currently, our Pelatnas players are in "jail"... working hard for WC preparation....
SBY boosts RI shuttlers morale ahead of world champs
Bagus BT Saragih, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sports | Tue, July 30 2013, 11:55 AM
President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono met on Monday with Indonesian badminton players who are set to compete at the upcoming 2013 BWF World Championships to boost their morale amid Indonesia’s lack of success in recent international tournaments.
“Every time Indonesian badminton players compete in international events, I always watch no matter what time it is. I get so anxious,” the President told the nation’s badminton stars at the State Palace.
The Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) has readied 28 shuttlers to compete in the 2013 World Championships slated to be held at TianHe Indoor Gymnasium in Guangzhou, China, from Aug. 5 to 11. The championships will see approximately 400 of the world’s top players representing five continents, all competing for the World Championship title.
Roy Suryo, meanwhile, asked the President to call on national TV stations to provide more time slots to air games in which Indonesians were competing.

The last paragraph is really important for most INA badminton fans who don't subscribe pay TV. MNC Sports 2 (channel 102) will broadcast LIVE 2013 BWF WC exclusively from day-1 (5th August 2013) onwards.
I dont think media would willing to comply with such request, considering the upcoming mobarak long holidays - media would prefer to broadcast religious scenes / movies
I can't find the above news in English but the highlight to me is Gita is talking to Hendrawan. Hope Hendrawan will be back and push INA singles player to a higher level
There is a chance that we will be trimming pelatnas into a smaller scale....if you wonder why we have so many players this year.....the purpose is so Rexy gets the feel and know which players will be maintained and demoted...
when will pelatnas demoted some players? after indonesia gpg or at the year end ?
Hauge, give us some hints about new pairing
Agree, for the sake of future, should keep just the top players and young players
It's almost certain that Simon & Firda would be demoted at the end of the year. Prior to the WC, Rexy has given both of them yellow light and corroborated that should they don't perform well in this tourney he could only say thank you. And, both unexpectedly lost to unseeded players in R1, Hsu and Caro respectively.
quite sad if Simon left pelatnas by the end of year. However, it's true that pelatnas should keep top and young players. Hopefully, Simon will continue play as independent player
Yeah, he could still attracted sponsors to fund him I guess.
What about Sonny Dwi Kuncoro?
Sony is 29, Simon is 28, you really can't depend too much on them anymore. PBSI needs to jolt the INA MS scene. Cut the veteran loose and let the younger generation carry the weight or sink.
His plays with rally style. It's kinda hard to keep abreast with the young players given rally requires copious of movements.
Now, we have some hope in winning MD and XD. just like what happened in 2007.
