Simpati Zakry/Fairuz

Posted by SEJAHTERA BADMINTON on March 2, 2009


Kepastian mundurnya Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan di ajang bergengsi Super Series All England disambut perasaan campur-aduk oleh unggulan empat asal Malaysia, Mohd. Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari/Mohd Zakry Latif. Di satu sisi, keduanya turut merasa simpati dengan cedera lutut yang menimpa Kido. “Kami berdua juga pernah cedera dan itu betul-betul tidak nyaman. Mudah-mudahan saja Kido cepat pulih,” ucap Zakry.

zakriTapi, di sisi lain, hal ini menjadi berkah buat Zakry/Fairuz. Jika Kido/Hendra turun, mereka bisa saling berhadapan di semifinal All England.

Kido/Hendra merupakan momok buat pasangan Malaysia tersebut. Dari lima pertemuan sebelumnya Zakry/Fairuz tak pernah menang. “Mundurnya mereka juga berarti sebuah berita gembira. Mudah-mudahan jalan kami semakin lapang,” kata Zakry.

Sama seperti pasukan ganda putra Cipayung, pasangan Malaysia juga menggarap faktor nonteknis dengan kegiatan luar lapangan seperti outbond.

Pelatih Malaysia, Rexy Mainaky, mengingatkan pemain asuhannya untuk tetap waspada. Di babak pertama, lawan yang bakal menghadang adalah wakil pelatnas PBSI, Rian Sukmawan/Yonatan Suryatama.

“Kami juga sudah siap. Memang saya sempat sedikit terganggu cedera dan Rian sakit flu, tapi saya yakin bisa fit saat pertandingan. Kami ingin tampil mengejutkan,” sebut Yonatan. (irw/win)

Jelang All England : Latihan Pemain Non-Pelatnas Tidak Kalah Serius

Posted by SEJAHTERA BADMINTON on March 2, 2009


Magnet turnamen Super Series All England juga menarik minat pemain nonpelatnas untuk turut berlaga. Maklum, AE sebagai turnamen tertua yang digelar sejak 1899 memiliki gengsi tersendiri.

Juara Olimpiade Athena 2004 dan juara dunia 2005, Taufik Hidayat, yang sudah mengundurkan diri dari pelatnas PBSI, adalah salah satu yang ngebet untuk mencicipi gelar All England yang memang belum pernah diraihnya. Usai keluar dari pelatnas, Taufik berlatih pagi-sore di GOR Bantong di kawasan Cijantung.

“Sudah siap tanding. Kondisi sudah membaik setelah sempat tak teratur latihan hampir dua bulan,” ucap Taufik.

Tak cuma Taufik, masih ada Alamsyah Yunus dan ganda senior Flandy Limpele serta Alvent Yulianto/Hendra Aprida Gunawan yang serius berlatih. “Pokoknya tiap hari harus latihan. Kalau tidak di sini, ya diusahakan di tempat lain. Pagi latihan gim, sore latihan fisik,” kata Alvent.

Tak hanya pemain putra, pemain putri seperti Jo Novita dan Vita Marissa juga kerap menjaga kondisi dengan berlatih di tempat ini. Lawan mereka adalah sejumlah pemain pratama yang belum dipanggil lagi.

Pemain lain adalah Joko Riyadi, eks skuad Cipayung yang kini digandeng Candra Wijaya. Namun, Candra/Joko tak setiap hari berlatih bersama. Jika sedang latihan sendiri, tak jarang Joko ikut berlatih bersama Taufik cs. Selain Taufik, yang masih ditangani Mulyo Handoyo, pemain lain berlatih tanpa pelatih. Mereka harus pandai mengatur jadwal tanpa bimbingan program pelatih.

“Minimal tiga hari dalam seminggu kami latihan bareng. Kalau sedang tidak latihan bersama, kami pasti akan tetap latihan sendiri,” sebut Joko, yang semasa di pelatnas menjadi pasangan Hendra A.G. (win)

Menjelang All England Garap Psikologis

Posted by SEJAHTERA BADMINTON on March 2, 2009


Aspek psikologis menjadi faktor yang bakal menjadi perhatian saat pebulutangkis Pelatnas Cipayung berlaga di Super Series All England, 3-8 Maret.

“Turnamen All England dan Swiss menjadi dasar bagi awal evaluasi sisi psikologis pemain pelatnas. Tujuannya supaya pemain bisa siap secara mental menghadapi turnamen apa pun,” ucap Lilik Sudarwati, Kasubid Psikologi PBSI.

Lilik, yang juga mantan pemain nasional, diserahi tugas menjadi manajer tim Indonesia di tur Eropa. “Jadi bukan cuma karena mau bertanding di turnamen prestisius seperti All England saja. Kalau secara mental mereka siap, dalam keadaan apa pun kita harap permainan terbaik mereka bisa keluar,” kata Lilik.

Ketua Umum PBSI, Djoko Santoso, menyebut satu gelar setidaknya diraih di All England. Setelah Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan batal berangkat, harapan tinggal disematkan kepada ganda campuran Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir, yang menempati posisi nomor satu dunia.

“Tak usah dijadikan sebagai beban supaya kalian bisa bermain lepas,” tutur Djoko saat pelepasan tim, Rabu.

Rencananya, seluruh pemain berangkat pada Jumat (27/2). Namun, karena terkendala masalah visa yang terlambat keluar, pelatih baru bisa menyusul Senin. Hanya pelatih tunggal putra, Hendrawan, yang bisa berangkat berbarengan dengan rombongan pemain.

Maria Batal

“Tak ada masalah. Kami sudah dibekali dengan program latihan selagi pelatih belum datang,” ujar M. Ahsan, pasangan Bona Septano di ganda putra.

“Biasanya mereka akan mencoba lapangan. Soal latihan, sudah siap tanding sejak di Jakarta,” ujar Marlev Mainaky, pelatih tunggal putri.

Sayangnya hanya tiga hari sebelum berangkat, nomor tunggal putri kehilangan tunggal terbaik, Maria Kristin, yang akhirnya batal berangkat karena cederanya kambuh. “Kondisinya sudah siap tanding. Tapi, dalam latihan cederanya kambuh. Sudah berusaha diobati dengan disinar, ternyata malah melepuh. Lebih baik istirahat total sampai sembuh dulu,” kata Marlev. (Erwin Fitriansyah)

Chong Wei Must Prove Stature At All-England

Posted by SEJAHTERA BADMINTON on March 2, 2009


KUALA LUMPUR, March 1 (Bernama) — For any professional badminton shuttler, winning the prestigious All-England Open title would be the pinnacle of his career.

In the world of badminton, there is a saying that “you can win as many international titles as you can but without the All-England, all other titles are nothing.”

With that in mind, in the quest of becoming the ‘best of the best’, a national player making waves in the international scene, like Malaysia number one singles player Datuk Lee Chong Wei, knows that winning the All-England would be the peak of his career.

Throughout his eight years playing badminton, Chong Wei has won numerous international titles with handsome monetary gains, with the highest title being a silver medal at the Beijing Olympics last year.

But, the national shuttler has never won the All-England.

Unlike his nearest rival, Lin Dan of China, who is currently ranked world no 2, and has won three All-England titles (2004, 2006 & 2007), two Badminton World Federation championships titles (2006 & 2007), and a Beijing Olympics gold medal (2008).

Age is catching up, as Chong Wei celebrates his 27th birthday in October. Hence, the newly-appointed UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador must take advantage of his current performance and rank to wrest the coveted All-England title.

Should the Penangite win the much sought-after title, this colourful feat would put Chong Wei on par with two national badminton figures who had won the All-England title before.

Muhammad Hafiz Hashim won the title in 2003, while the best feat was displayed by the legendary Eddy Choong Ewe Beng — four-time men’s singles champion — in 1953, 1954, 1956 & 1957 and three-time men’s doubles champion after pairing up with his brother, David Ewe Choong — 1951, 1952 & 1953.

In the 99th edition of the All-England Super Series Open to be held in Birmingham from March 3-8, Chong Wei has been drawn in the top-half and faces unknown Chinese player Lu Yi in the opening round and either Thailand’s Boonsak Ponsana or Marc Zwiebler from Germany in the second round.

Barring any upset, the 26-year-old is expected to meet world no 5 Indonesian Sony Dwi Kuncoro in the quarter-finals and his nemesis, China’s Chen Jin, the defending champion, in the semi-finals.

Chen Jin, the world no 3, beat Chong Wei 18-21, 18-21 in straight sets in the quarter-finals last year and went on to beat Lin Dan 22-20, 25-23 in the final to clinch the title.

Meanwhile, world no 2 and second seed Lin Dan, drawn in the bottom half, has not played any competitive tournament since the Olympics in August.

The Chinese shuttler has apparently been undergoing ‘army style’ training since the Olympics and did not compete in the Masters Super Series Grand Finals in Kota Kinabalu (December), Malaysian Open in January and the Korean Open, also in January.

Apart from Chong Wei, Wong Choong Hann, Sairul Amar Ayob and Lee Tsuen Seng have been listed for the men’s singles while Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong (2007 All-England men’s doubles winners), Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif/Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari and Gan Teik Chai/Tan Bin Shen are down to compete in the men’s doubles.

Julia Wong Pei Xian is the only women’s singles player listed, as Wong Mew Choo is injured while Chin Wei Hui/Wong Pei Tty shoulder the women’s doubles challenge.

Two back-up squad pairs, Haw Chiou Hwee/Lim Pek Siah and Goh Liu Ying/Ng Hui Lin play in the women’s doubles qualifying rounds.

Missing from the list was former champion Hafiz whose form has never been the same since that magnificent feat in 2003.

Tight Contest in the Ladies Event

Women’s doubles opened final match between two Chinese, Cheng Shu/Zhao Yunlei (6) and Pan Pan/Tian/Qing. In the first set, Cheng/Zhao dominate the match with their attacking smash. Many rally happen between both players as they have fantastic defense, but in the end Cheng/Zhao failed to give ‘finishing touch’ to the cock. After fallen behind 3-8, Cheng/Zhao tied up Pan/Tian in 8-all. Once again, Pan/Tian showed their consistency and solidifying heart with less of errors in return to lead 14-10, 17-11 and reached match point 20-14 before ended the show 21-18.

The tables were turns in the second game. Cheng/Zhao played more aggressive with their placing and beautiful net winner. Leading 11-7 in the interval, Cheng/Zhao continued their dignity into critical point 14-8 and 18-11 to force decider set 21-13.

Pan/Tian finally frustrated with their shots after Cheng/Zhao could return most of that. Then one by one Cheng/Zhao collected the points 11-5 at toilet’s break then ran into 14-7, 16-10 and 19-14 before claimed their first title 21-16.

The fabulous match also represented by two Chinese ladies, Zhu Lin (1) and Wang Yihan (6). Both of players have equaled skills in attacking and placing. But Zhu who has more experience taking first set lead 14-5 and 19-10. But then suddenly Yihan found her magic to collect 7 consecutive points from 13-20 to 20-all. Zhu almost lost her match but her spirits don’t let her down to take care this set 22-20.

At her best from, Yihan could beat Tine Rasmussen and Zhou Mi like what she did at Japan Open SS and China Masters SS 2008 and that’s what happened in the next two set. This 21-years old Shanghai girl forced her attacking smash into Zhu from 7-3, 11-8, 15-10 and finished the second set 21-13. Same things happen in the decider when she’s able to step out huge lead 18-10 before ensure her first title 21-13 over the winner World Championships 2007.

The Unexpected Final Matches

Yihan who succeeded to create the biggest upset could not followed by Gong Wijie in Men’s Singles. Weijie missed his chance after lost easily from his senior, Bao Chunlai (1) in 39 minutes straight match. In the beginning of match, all the way goes to Weijie as he leads 11-7 at the interval. But Bao strategy to play tactic and efficiently makes Weijie gave up with his game. Bao finally clinched his chance after tie up the score 13-all and 14-all.

The only non-Chinese match happen in men’s doubles category which is hope more exciting than the other match suddenly becomes out of taste in the end. Japanese pair, Kenichi Hayakawa/Kenta Kazuno who destroys Amrerica’s pair Tony Gunawan/Howard Bach in the previous round performed lack of skills when they face Olympic formerly, Lee Yong Dae who partnering wih Shin Baek Cheol.

Japan’s pair did so many errors in the first set when Korea has their aggressive plays. Most of Lee/Shin points also grabbed from their attacking smash. Lee Yong Dae stirs the game from 11-6 into huge lead 17-7 and 19-9 then closed the match 21-13. Hence, Kenta or Kenichi who usually plays very well in the end also their spirit in the second round. After locked Korean from 6-all into 9-all, the Japanese let their chance slip away and thrilled behind 10-14, 13-18 and 19-14. Kenta’s smash and net play succeed in the end but it’s too late when Korea shut the door 21-16 and claimed their first victory as a new pair.

Zheng/Ma played more aggressive in the second set with smashing and beautiful placing. They net play also ran very well when they lead the way 15-12 and 17-14 after fallen behind 6-10. But some errors from Zheng/Ma make Xu/Zhao back to their game and crawled 19-17 before match point 20-18.

Results Semifinal German Open ’09 : Chinese Ensure Four Titles, Korea Knocked Out

Posted by SEJAHTERA BADMINTON on March 2, 2009


All of Chinese players officially went to final matches after beaten their opponents last night. Two of them crashed favorite winner, Lee Yong Dae/Lee Hyo Jung in mixed doubles and Lee Hyo Jung/Lee Kyung Won in the ladies event. But although dominate in 4 category, unfortunately none of them were envoy in men’s doubles. After Xu Chen/Guo Zhendong lost in their first match and ended of Fu/Cai’s era, China still has critical regeneration problem in this sector as their weakest category.

Mixed Doubles

The ‘mighty’ China once again showed their domination in this category last night. Gold medalist Olympic Beijing as defending champion, Lee Yong Dae/Lee Hyo Jung (1) should put down their crown after loosing their match over world #64, semifinalist China Open and Hongkong Open 2008, Zheng Bo/Ma Jin in easily straight match.

Since the beginning of first set, duo Chinese keep their lead from 4-1 into 7-4 with their aggressively attack. Zheng Bo who also plays very well in front of the net not giving any chance for Olympic champion to develop their match. Duo Lee comeback with their beautiful net winner and close their gap 12-14 but Zheng/Ma took 5 consecutive points before ended the match 21-14.

In the second set, Lee/Lee changes their strategy and play more aggressive to attack with their smash and drop shot. It’s ran very well when they have huge lead from 8-4, 13-8 into 16-9. This game like belongs to Korean but Zheng/Ma stuck up their gun and lock up them in 17-all. Ma Jin has very great defense in front of the net and beautiful placing when Zheng Bo came to attack with his drive and drop shot. Leading 19-17, Zheng/Ma finished the game 21-18.

Back again to 2006 when the last time Ma Jin played against Lee Yong Dae was in the 2006 World Junior Championships, when they were both playing with younger partners and Lee beat Ma in both the team and individual finals to win gold.  Now they’re both back and playing with older partners.  Lee has won the Olympics already while Ma is still looking for her first title but now she is playing with Zheng Bo, who was playing with Gao Ling before.

On the other court, China also showed their dignity when Xu Chen/Zhao Yunlei (5) buried Indonesia’s last hope, Flandy Limpele now partnering with Russian, Anastasia Russkikh in rubber set match. Although with some errors, their aggressiveness breezed Flandy/Anastasia 10-2 in the first set before reached match point 20-10 and wrapped up 21-12.

Flandy/Anastasia finally succeeded to force rubber set after tight contest in the second game. Went down from 3-6, Indonesia-Russia’s pair raised their wings to tied the Chinese from 6 into 8-all. Flandy/Anastasia took the lead from 12-9 to 15-12 but then Xu/Zhao reversed the score with their attack into 18-16. Flandy becomes to be hero in the end when he secured critical points 18 and 19-all then grab this game 21-19.

Decider game finally belongs to Chinese after Flandy and Anastasia ran out of gas. With so many errors in return, Indonesia-Russia’s pair tried to push their attack but not very good in the end. Fallen behind 9-15 and 18-9, they finally lost it 12-21.

Men’s Singles

Bao Chunlai as the first seeded also guarantee men’s singles title to China’s team after beating the only non-Chinese left, Eric Pang in 49 minutes. This match looks very easy for Bao in the first set when he took care of Eric 21-14 in the first set. But Eric found his magic in the second game when he fallen behind 9-16 then tied up the scores into 17-all. Feeling under pressure with Eric’s attacking smash and his own errors, Bao surrendered 21-19.

Eric actually has his second chance after locked off the Chinese from 7-all into 12-all after he drowned 4-7 in the beginning of decider. Bao then played clever as he gave beautiful placing outside of Eric’s reach. Eric tried to push his smash when he stepped out 12-15 and 14-17. But with 4 consecutive points, Bao ended this match 21-17.

In the final match, Bao will face his junior’s compatriot, Gong Weijie who crashed Chen Long’s dream, 21-19, 21-19. Chen has expert skills in the whole of match to level Gong experiences but obviously he’s not very good in the end when he has to clinch critical points and finish the game.

Women’s Doubles

Lee Hyo Jung seems has to through her bad dream once more in this category with Lee Kyung Kwon. As defending champion in Mixed Doubles and Women’s Doubles last year, now she’s got nothing except as semifinalist title as she played not at her best performance last night. Against the winner Japan Open SS and French Open SS 2008, Cheng Shu/Zhao Yunlei (3), their defense as the basic modals to play in this sector not ran very well although they had beautiful attacking smash.

Duo Lee also lack of placing shot when they fallen behind 8-14 and 13-17 in the first set before lost their game 17-21. The aggressiveness of Chinese pair looks more clearly in the second when most of their points taking from their attacking smash. Leading huge lead 9-0, 14-4 and 17-5, Cheng/Zhao frustrated Olympic silver medalist 21-11 in the second set.

This results also makes All-China Final in the last battle as in the previous match, Pan Pan/Tian Qing destroys another Korean pair, Ha Jung Eun/Kim Min Jung (2) in two straight games. Pan/Tian might not played as aggressive as Cheng/Zhao but they could combined between attacking smash and net playing very well. Taking lead 15-4 in the first, they shut the door with 21-7.

Pan Pan who also played in mixed doubles with Xu Chen before then changes her partnership with Tao Jiaming continued her best perform in the second set. The Korean tried to pull Chinese with their placing on the backcourt. They net plays also develop so well and create more points. Meanwhile, Pan/Tian still elaborates their attacking and placing but having not less in defense. After tight match with 1-2 gap points from 0 into 17-all, Ha/Kim played not very taugh in the end. The Chinese finally ended the show 21-18.

Women’s Singles

Zhu Lin (1) and Wang Yihan (6) also crawled Chinese domination in the ladies single event after fighting for almost 1 one hour in rubber set tight contest. Zhu opened the chance for her first title in this year when she beats Netherland’s Judith Meulendijks, Zhu has great attacking in the first but then lack of focus with so many errors when she fallen behind 6-11 and 8-13. She tried to wake up and tie up the score 14-all. Judith who also has beautiful net play raised up once again 17-15 and reached match point 20-16 before clinched the game with her smash 21-18.

Everything were going to be different in the second set as Zhu forced to play in front of the net. When Judith did many errors in return, Zhu flew away 17-4 and 19-7 then closed this game 21-8. Same strategy happen in decider set. Judith minimized her errors, tried to play aggressive and gave more pressure. After fallen behind 2-9, Juidth could manage her gap 8-10 and 10-12. But Zhu don’t let her chance slipped away and reached critical points first 19-13 before sealed 21-14 victory.

Local representative, Xu Huaiwen (2) failed to stop Wang Yihan and prevail All China Final. After tight match with 1-2 gap points since the beginning of the match, Xu taking her first chance to huge lead 11-8 in the toilet’s break. Yihan who plays well in front of the net and having great attack tied up 13-all before reversing the score 15-13 and 17-15. Xu don’t want to miss her chance and locked the score 17-all. Having bad luck in the end, Xu should surrender 18-21.

The second game went so easy for Yihan. She’s taking huge lead 12-5 and 19-15 in the critical point but couldn’t finish it well as Huaiwen took 7 consecutive points to force rubber set 21-19. Lost from her power, Huaiwen fallen behind 5-12 and 8-17 in the decider set. Yihan reached match point 20-9 then finished it off 21-10.

Men’s Doubles

Although lost his chance with Hyo Jung in mixed category, Lee Yong Dae as the last shuttler from Korea did perform superb with his new partner, Shin Baek Cheol last night. Both of them booked final ticket to face Japanese new raising star, Kenichi Hayakawa/Kenta Kazuno. Lee/Shin played with their solidifying heart in the beginning when they lead the score 8-2 and 11-7 against #2 seeds, Robert Blair/Chris Adcock.

This game looks belong to England but Lee/Shin didn’t give up easily as they took 3 consecutive points and tied up 19-all.

The game was different in the second set. Lee/Shin ruled all the way from 12-5 to 16-7 and 18-10 before celebrated their glory 21-16.

These two Japanese who played very well in front of the net playing clever with their placing and not only force attacking smash. After fallen behind 10-13, they changes the score in the end 19-16 and closed it 22-20.
