    ...Candra/Nova got Gold Medal of Badminton's Men Double in PON (National Games of Indonesia) 2004...I heard they trained together and prepare all things for ABC less than 1 week...really great if they would beat top pairs in this tournament but hope they not meet their own teammates early...

    Chandra/Nova will have Ikeda/Sakamoto in 2nd round and Alvent/Luluk in QF....HJM/LJJ or CTF/LWW in SF.....

    They may reach QF...and lost to Alvent/Luluk....this is my prediction...

    hahaha, that's a bold statement.
    i personally think they are going to lose tomorrow, otherwise they should be INA's MD2 in the TC.

    hehehe..I hope so...but let see whether Nova still can fight and have energy for QF MD after he must play hard in MixD match at 6.30 o`clock for keeping INA`s mission stopping Xie/Zawen win the title of ABC....I think MixD of INA vs CHN will take rubber games....so Nova just can take a rest for 2 hours before his MD match (at 9.10 o`clock)... :eek::eek::(:(

    Candra-Nova out for a revival at the ABC

    FOUR years ago, Candra Wijaya and Nova Widianto combined to win Indonesia’s national men’s doubles title.
    Now, the 32-year-old Candra and Nova are trying to revive that partnership in a bid to add more depth to Indonesia’s doubles department for the Thomas Cup Finals, which will be held in Jakarta next month.
    The modest Candra admitted that Indonesia were trying out his scratch partnership with Nova in the ongoing Asian Badminton Championships (ABC) to see if they will be good enough for the Finals.
    “It is no secret that Indonesia are considering my partnership with Nova as one of the options for the Thomas Cup Finals. We hope to impress the selectors here as Indonesia will name the three men’s pairs for the Finals after this meet,” said Candra.
    Currently, the top three Indonesian pairs are world champions Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan, Alven Yulianto-Luluk Hadiyanto and Joko Riyadi-Hendra Gunawan.
    Candra, who has been recalled by the All-Indonesia Badminton Association (PBSI) for the Finals, said that it was great to team up with two-time mixed doubles world champion Nova again.
    Candra will resume his usual partnership with US-based Tony Gunawan after completing his mission in the Finals.

    Does Nova really got the stamina for endurance?
    No doubt he did win tripple yesterday.
    But the main aim of PBSI is to prevent Xie/Zhang from occupying the slot for CHINA in XD event.
    I think Nova/Butet can't win for XD event but Nova/Chandra can stroll pass luluk/alvent in MD ( provided if they doesnt have the same kinda syndrome as Tony/Chandra partnership in which they often lost to their teammates, that is still remain a misery :rolleyes:)
