    An interview with TH after his defeat in Tokyo

    Hello badminton lovers...here is the translation regarding the interview....
    ======================================================

    BOLA: Taufik, apa arti prestasi di Jepang ini? (What does your achievement mean to you in Japan?)

    Taufik: Maaf, saya gagal menang, tapi saya mensyukuri bisa ke final. Mungkin karena ini turnamen pertama setelah di Madrid. Saya tetap merasa lebih puas.

    #(Sorry, I didn’t make it but I am still thankful to reach the final. Maybe because this is the first tournament after WC06)

    Maksudnya, untuk menepis tanggapan berbagai kalangan yang menganggap Anda sedang menurun? (You mean you want to prove that your performance is not going down yet?)

    Saya akui saya gagal di Madrid, tapi sebagai pemain kan ada kalanya di atas dan ada kalanya di bawah. Saya puas karena mampu bermain baik dengan mengalahkan beberapa pemain terbaik dunia di Tokyo.

    #(I admit that I failed in Madrid, but as a player will experience up and down situation. I am happy I could play well and defeat some top players in Tokyo.)

    Komentar tentang Lin Dan sendiri? (your comment on LD?)

    Dia juara dunia dan pemain nomor satu dunia. Jadi enggak usah dikomentari lagi karena semua orang tahu dia pemain terbaik di dunia saat ini.

    #(He is the world champ and world no.1 player. So no need to give comments coz everybody knows he is the best at the moment)

    Banyak orang yang menunggu-nunggu pertandingan final ideal ini?(Lots of people are expecting for this ideal final match?)

    Saya juga mengharapkan pertandingan tadi sebagai partai final ideal dan menghiburkan penonton. Saya kalah di Hong Kong karena tak meneruskan pertandingan. Jadi, tentu banyak yang menunggu-nunggu. Tapi, bagi saya setiap pertandingan sama saja sebenarnya. Saya kalah, tapi sempat merebut satu gim.

    #(I was also expecting that match to be an ideal final match and entertain people. I was lost in HK due to not continuing the match. So people of course are expecting for this final match. Every match is no difference for me. I was lost but I took one game. )

    Sayang Gagal (unfortunately I was lost)

    Anda mengalahkan dua pemain terbaik di dunia dalam perjalanan ke final. Yang mana yang paling mengesankan?( You defeated two top players before the final match, Which one is most important one?)

    Mengalahkan Bao Chunlai cukup penting karena itu di babak pertama. Kalau kalah ya angkat koper. Menentang Lee Chong Wei di semifinal, saya menang lebih mudah dari yang saya perkirakan. Tapi tadi sempat alot juga melawan Lin Dan. Saya berusaha menang karena ini akan menjadi gelar pertama di Tokyo. Sayang memang.

    #Defeating BCL is quite important because it was in the round 1. Lost means I have to pack off. Playing LCW in SF, I won easier than I expected. It was a tight match against LD. I tried to win the match to make my first title in Tokyo. Unfortunately I was lost.



    Apa target selanjutnya? (What’s your next target?)

    Saya akan mencoba yang terbaik di Asian Games Doha nanti. Bahkan tahun ini AG Doha lebih berarti buat saya ketimbang Kejuaraan Dunia. AG hanya setiap empat tahun sekali dan saya ingin sekali merebut medali emas perseorangan AG setelah emas Olimpiade Ahena.
    (I will try my best in Doha. AG is more important than WC this year for me since It is once in four years event. I want to win AG individual gold medal after OG gold medal)

    Soal lawan-lawan di Doha? (How about your opponents in Doha?)

    AG sebenarnya tak berbeda dengan turnamen lain, minus Peter Gade dan Kenneth Jonassen. Lawan tetap sama, Cina, Malaysia, dan Korsel. Mungkin bertemu yang itu-itu juga.
    (As a matter of fact, AG is just the same as the other tournaments. But it is without PG & KJ. It will be the same countries with same faces.)

    Untuk tahun depan? (for next year occasions?)

    Sudah barang tentu saya harus lebih fokus lagi karena tahun depan mulai diperkenalkan Super Series. Jadi beberapa turnamen tersisa akan saya pergunakan betul-betul memperbaiki ranking.

    #(definitely, I have to stay more focus because there will be super series next year. I will optimize the rest of the tournaments to upgrade my ranking)

    Anda “tersiksa” dengan ranking saat ini (34 dunia) dan tidak diunggulkan di setiap turnamen yang diikuti? (Do you feel being’tortured’ having low ranking and unseeded in every tournament you play?)

    Tidak juga karena prinsip saya menang, menang sekalian, kalah, kalah sekalian. Kalau mau juara ya mengalahkan semua lawan. Namun, untuk Super Series tahun depan saya harus mulai mempersiapkan diri dari sekarang karena gengsinya kan lain.

    (Not at all, because my principle is win is win and lost is lost. If I want to be a champ I have to defeat all my opponents. Since the upcoming super series is more prestigious I have to prepare myself from now on )

    I think he can beat CJ, CH and BCL if he wants to :eek: :p ;)
    But as a member said earlier, TH can't keep up with LD's pace of game.... so if he lost last week, I think he will lose to LD again (if he gets into the final with LD :D ) just my opinion... :D :p ;)

    In his answer of this last question, he hinted his "philosophy" of winning and losing, so I would translate it more accurately like this:
    Not at all, because my principle is IF WIN, WIN BIG, IF LOST, SO BE IT LOST BIG...

    This might explain his 3rd set surrender in JO: If I know for sure I ll lose, then just let it go.. why bother.

    I believe there are more number of ardent chinese fans like Kemana, my friend I knew who would rather cheer for TH than LD... ;-) So better watch out for the crowd IFFFFFFFFF TH meets LD...

    ALl Chinese players are worried with the Taufik return...

    It is too hard for CJ and CH to defeat TH even in his homeground supported by 1 billion supporters....

    I think that Andrew Smith stands a reasonable chance of beating Chen Hong - he was in good form yesterday too fast and accurate for Eric Pang.

    LOL:D:D You come out and post this kind of stuff every time Taufik is in a tournament this year... then what happened??? Taufik lost, and you disappeared from this forum for a couple of days, then came back when things cooled down. Aren't you tired of repeating the process by now???:p:p

    Winter is coming, and maybe you can now hide after Chen Jin wins today and be back when the Asian game starts.:D

    Yeah, that explains why he boycotted the HK open.

    My philosophy is that I will try my best all the time, against whoever he is. A match is a match which measures the true spectrum of two players, and explores the limits and beyond of personal potential. As a professional player, there is one more responsibility to the spectators to reveal the real capability of yourself, nothing to hide.

    So I think what Taufik did is nothing heroic, but complete cowardly, and plus cheating. He just feared to let people know how inferior he is than others. In a word, he doesn't have any guts to face failure. You may argue he admit his loss, but he doesn't let anyone, includng himself, figure out why and by how much.

    Exactly!!! TH just came up with the most ridiculous excuse to cover his butt.:p If every player follow his excuse, then we will always have stupid matches like the 3 game of Japan open MS final.:mad:

    Imagine upcoming stars draw a match with LCW, PG, or LD, and immediately they share Taufik's excuse, and there we have a match of intentional hitting shuttle into the net... :confused: and would any one of you buy tickets to watch dumb matches like the Japan Open MS final if you know somewhere in the match it WILL turn into another give-away game? Talk about making the game more popular??HAHHAHAHAHAHA.

    But I have to admit that Taufik's weird strategy really works.

    After he walked off HK open, he actually lost nothing, only a few points for ranking which may never account if he plays more than 10 tournaments, and a hundred dollars prize money for his defeat at HK open. Since he walked off, IBF treated it as Taufik never played at HK Open 2006, no points, no prize, no any record in database. So Taufik will have less loss to Lin Dan in the database. That's exactly what Taufik wanted. So he got what he wanted by walking off

    Now that's why they say Taufik has unmatched "TALENT":p:p Normal people like you and me probably won't plan so far ahead in a tournament, right?:p:D:D we lack talent...:(

    Yeah, exactly.

    Taufik is so talented built on the top of the stupidity of the IBF. Is the current IBF CEO a former INA militant?
