indra, i think u misunderstand me, what i meant with the boy is excell, i've seen his pic in Nova.
iceberg, maybe you want to buy the newest Tabloid Genie. I did buy it for the first time . It's Taufik, Ami, Agum and wife in it's cover.
You'll find Agum speak many things about Taufik and his injury, the issue about Taufik's child etc.
Agum also spoke about Taufik's recurring back injury. It's worse than I first thought. He said that after semifinal IO match against Chen Yu, Taufik felt the terrible pain again, and his body temperature rose and Taufik must take a bath in early 01.00 am because he couldn't stand the heat. According to Agum, physically Taufik was unfit to play the final match against Bao, but Taufik's spirit was so strength despite the pain. And he won, and Agum was so proud of him.
Agum said that Taufik said he did not care even if he must die in the field for the glory of the country. (Taufik tidak peduli walau pun harus terkapar mati di lapangan demi membela nama bangsa, or something like that). Hmm.
And it's after the final match vs Bao that Taufik and Ami met Agum to explain the issue to him.
Lucky Taufik, Agum is really proud of him and always support him. Taufik withdrew from SO is due to his injury, not because of the rumour.
Ningtyas, thanks for the info, despite it came from another tabloid magazine.. ..Hmm, so they actually disclose abt the rumor even before Taufik went to S'pore...Well, if Taufik indeed was in great pain during the IO Finals vs. Bao, then i must tip my hat to him for going out there and fight it out. But i'm still not convince of the injury which caused him to pulled out of the SO. If he indeed was injured, why would he even go to S'pore? I mean why do so, if he felt he's not strong enough to play the following week??..
Anyways, whatever it is, hope we can see him compete again..
Actually the tabloid is owned by Bimantara group, just like RCTI. And the tablid's ad on TV shows Ami read it. So, the tabloid was lucky to be able to interview Agum exclusively.
Why Taufik went to Singapore? I guess this was PBSI's decision. I read somewhere else, that Taufik has told them about the pain, but PBSI's official told him to just go and see if his condition improved there. But that's not the case, Taufik's pain was just worsening so he just went back home.
Here's what has been said about Taufik's injury (maybe you can translate it):
"Taufik memang tengah mengalami masalah pada punggungnya, apa ya, bukan syaraf kejepit tapi ada yang kena pada syarafnya. Ini biasa dialami oleh para olahragawan. Dan kondisi yang terjadi pada Taufik itu sudah parah banget. Kalau lagi kambuh kadang untuk jongkok atau sikat gigi saja terasa sakitnya bukan main. Ini yang tidak diketahui masyarakat."
Actually they disclose abt the rumor even before the final match against Bao.
"Belum reda sakit yang dialaminya, Taufik dihantam isu yang hampir merontokkan moralnya. Dalam waktu yang bersamaan, atau sehari menjelang Taufik bertanding di final (Sabtu 3/6), seorang wanita bernama Anny membeberkan kepada media bahwa dirinya telah memiliki seorang anak hasil hubungannya dengan Taufik Hidayat enam tahun yang lalu. Pengakuan menggegerkan ini tentu saja sangat mengganggu persiapan Taufik menjelang final. Hari Sabtu itu juga Taufik yang tengah berjuang dengan sakitnya, mendapat kabar mengenai pengakuan wanita itu dari Ami istrinya yang sempat dihubungi oleh wartawan.
FYI, ctjcad, the title is "Mengapa Taufik Diserang Menjelang Final Indonesia Open?"
In other part,
"Usai bertanding melawan Bao Chunlai, Taufik dan Ami kemudian menemui Agum untuk menjelaskan isu yang beredar di media. "Mungkin mereka takut saya akan marah mendengar berita itu. Tapi saya bilang, 'Ami, Taufik, Papa nggak terganggu dengan isu itu karena Papa yakin sama kalian'. Saya pun berpesan kepada mereka, janganlah terganggu isu itu. Pandanglah ke depan. Papa hanya ingin melihat Ami dan Taufik hidup bahagia. Setelah itu, saya peluk mereka dan saya bilang, "I'm proud of you," cerita Agum yang mengaku sangat bangga dengan ketegaran Taufik dan Ami dalam menghadapi permasalahan ini.
Isn't Taufik so lucky?
I agreed with bro ctjcad ....
and as I said earlier ........ (in joking)
Taufik (and all Indo player who widthdrawn) came to Singapore for SGS and not for SIS ......
So, whatever are the reasons ..... Taufik was here on Monday, but returned to Jakarta on Tuesday .....
SGS = Singapore Great Sales
SIS = Singapore Indoor Stadium
finally this is over, i 'm just so happy
The Mistery Solved
So thats where he went...The picture show him and his father in law in Berlin
I guess Taufik really want to retire from badminton soon. And its also shows whose team he is going to support! Go brazil.
haha, they all look so happy, anyone in Berlin can take pictures for us?
Am I the only one who thinks Taufik behaved really unprofessionally by begging off the Singapore Open through injury and showing up at the World Cup? I mean a 9 hour flight from INA to GER isn't exactly what the doctor ordered for a back injury. As a professional badminton player, he should behave like one. He's not really setting a very good example for all those kids who idolize him. You know what they say, kids like to emulate their idols. Looks like Taufik is dropping big hiints about leaving the game; he prefers to be a celebrity these days.
Yes i think you are the only one. Being good in a field does not mean that he has some rules to stick to. He is afterall a normal person like us and we need to respect his privacy. What he does outside badminton is his own business.
madbad, even PBSI could not do anything because Taufik is the KONI chief son in law. And Agum has asked Indonesians to understand that Taufik is not so fit (lagi sakit).
Maybe Taufik will not leave badminton so soon.
But because of his injury --or-any-other-reason-- I think he become very selective in chosing which tournament he would play.
When Agum asked by the tabloid reporter about Taufik's future in badminton, Agum said that Taufik is just 25 years old, and he hope Taufik will win some important events such as the Beijing Olympic, Thomas Cup, and Sudirman Cup. And Agum also said that if Taufik can win the All England title, then Taufik's achievement as a badminton player will be just excellent and perfect (karirnya sudah sangat cantik dan sempurna).
And I hope Agum add Doha Asian Games as another target for Taufik.
For me personally, if Taufik for-whatever-reason can only play in 3-4 tournament, I would like he chooses the very important ones. It's alright if he cannot not win so many open tournaments, it's alright if his ranking drop, as long as he win in big tournaments, especially for the country (such as Olympic and Asian Games).
Its true that kids try to emulate their idols. However the parents are the one who is most responsible for the kids development and NOT sports people or idols.
imagine a parent saying " my kids are spoilt because of Taufik "
how ridilculous that will be???
sorry just my thought.
As I said before...
Soccer is his blood, playing badminton is his job.
I love him
Peter Gade should have also thanked him
Well, if he goes to Singapore but left the tournament in order to go to the world cup, then maybe its a little bad. If its really because of injury, then nothing can be done anyway.
I suppose the concept of a professional sportsman is different in each country, or at least how a professional is supposed to behave. While parents can guide their child, if the child is enamoured with a certain sports celebrity you will see him/her emulating the idol. Why, because the kid sees it as glamorous, cool, hip. It is very evident in soccer where kids copy their favourite player's moves and skills. It then evolves into some body language mannerisms or disintegrates into behaviour such as berating the referee. Believe me, I have been very disappointed with how some kids with great potential have turned out, and that's to some degree due the the influence of their idol.
In North America at least, responsible sports stars acknowledge the need to be a good role model for kids, both on and off the the playing field/court. That's also a measure of the type of person they are.
Believe you me, Taufik is one of my favourite players but recently, his off court life is making more headlines than his professional life. I quite honestly do not care much of his personal life but as a badminton fan, it is affecting his play. And he doesn't appear to take this setback seriously. Also, like it or not (I am not apportioning blame), his behaviour will have a trickle down effect to some of his younger, adoring fans. It is very evident on BC he has almost cult-like groupies that can see him do no wrong. I hope Taufik realises that badminton gave him his fame and fortune and treats the sport and his fans with respect.
Yeah Peter Gade should thank him in order to make things easier. But even if they meet, Peter will definately win still.
OK, as requested, here's my brief translation-sorry for a bit of delay..
Ningtyas, thanks for quoting the article...
Anyways, just a couple of comment from me:
1. the report abt Taufik having problem with his back even when he's squatting or brushing his teeth actually was mentioned in this forum during the recent Thomas and Uber Cup...
2. Abt the report that Ami actually heard the news before the Finals began and when i saw the web broadcast of her in the stand cheering and looked like nothing was bothering her, probably is enough evidence that the rumor was just that, a rumor.. but who knows....
anyways, here it is for those interested..
"Taufik indeed is still having problems with his back. It's not a pinch nerve but it's around the nerve area. This usually happens to athletes. And his condition has actually worsen. If the pain resurfaces either when he's squatting or brushing his teeth, it is really painful. And this is not known to the public".
"Even before his injury subsided, Taufik has to deal with an issue which almost broke his morale. Along the same time, or a day before Taufik played in the Final(Saturday, June 6th), a woman named Anny spilled to the media that she has a son as a result of her relationship with Taufik Hidayat 6 yrs ago. The shocking revelation of course distracted Taufik's preparation in the upcoming Final. That Saturday during which Taufik was fighting along with his injury, he heard the news of the woman's confession from his wife Ami who was contacted with a reporter."
Article's title is "Why Taufik was confronted upon the Indonesian Open Final?"
In other part,
"After his match against Bao Chunlai, Taufik and Ami then met with Agum to explain the issue which has circulated in the media. "Maybe they're afraid i will be angry upon hearing that news. But i said, 'Ami, Taufik, daddy is not affected by that issue because daddy trust you both'. I also reminded them both, to not be bothered by that issue. Look forward to the future. Dad only desire to see Ami and Taufik live happily. After that, i hugged the both and told, "I'm proud of you", said Agum who confessed that he was very proud with Ami's and Taufik's toughness in facing this problem."
that picture of them in Germany and having a good time is pretty convincing, that the issue was just a big rumor after all...Either that, or they were very good in "putting up a good front" for the media...
Side note and off topic:i'm just wondering, in the pic, why is Agum there with both of them?? I know he probably was invited, but why still mingling with his daughter and son-in-law??..Hmm, sorry, just expressing what i've known abt Indonesian or Asian culture: I hope i'm wrong on this, but i guess for the time being, Taufik will have to "follow" his father-in-law's wishes/command. If he decides not to, then probably he will be on his own and not be "treated" as the son-in-law of a "respected" individual...Sigh, this is just me, but poor Taufik, he's got all the "material" and "status" all to him, but he loses his "freedom of will"..
