My goodness..good job picachu. You're the third attempts. The other two, i manage to escape.
It's my first time at BC for 2 years..gosh!
Now, picachu, go back to your master Ash.
pls shed some light on pelatnas is it a private club or govt funded .Thank u if u could explain
Me for 2 months ... you 2 years ...
PBSI is the national body in charge of badminton in Indonesia and Pelatnas (Pemusatan Latihan Nasional) is just the training centre for the national team players. There are Pelatnas for all sports in INA, not only badminton.
Technically speaking, all club players also belong to PBSI and some get called up to the Pelatnas. Which is why we have the Seleknas (Seleksi Nasional) to select which players are eligible to represent the national team.
Owh..thanks for the clarification.
i thought Pelatnas is for all- badminton stars. So, can Taufik practice there even he's an independent pro-player and no longer subscribed to PBSI's management?
Pelatnas is only for players who are called up by the different sports' national bodies. So, we have Pelatnas for Badminton, Tennis, Taekwondo, etc.
Even though Taufik is out of Pelatnas, he's still a member of PBSI, unless he decides to immigrate to other countries or retire for good. However, once he decided not to be in the national team, he cannot enjoy the facilities and coaching support from Pelatnas though. He has to train back at his own club or at some other clubs if they do permit him to do so.
Its April Fool!you Fool!i Mean U:d
what is about this Asia CH? Is it not so privileged tournament to attract great players?
ask all the top players then
It's not unusual for the Asian Championships nor for a Grand Prix Gold event.
One might expect all the best Europeans or North Americans at their continental championships because of the good chance at GP Gold-level ranking points without so many of the world's best (read: Asian) players. If a top men's doubles pair wants the European title, they need only be better than five other pairs from the world's top-20. It's a golden opportunity. Not so for the best Asian players so they have to weigh the benefit against the costs of the travel and the busy tournament schedule, just like any other GP Gold event.
Apart from Malaysia and Indonesia, most other Asian powers are coming in strength. Indonesia is never at full-strength for GP Gold and neither is China. Korea skipped the last three in a row. I think the last time I saw a full-strength team at this level was last year's BAC.
Last year was an exception because it's a tournament that's eligible for Olympic qualification points. Chen Jin got his ticket to Beijing through that tourney. Xie Zhongbo/Zhang Yawen got eliminated, while He Hanbin/Yu Yang were through, also through that tourney.
Yup, last year was Olympic qualification and Chen Jin got a big break from Lin Dan ...... forced me to take a tea break during the match too.
But in this year's event the WS field is overwhelming and top CHN players are all entered to fight for the slots for World Championships. Some of them might have to go thru pretty difficult opposition from Rd 1 and 2.
Interesting clashes in the WS indeed, with 6 players scrambling for 4 spots in the WC 2009 (provided 4 players finish in the top 8):
Zhu Lin  vs Bae Youn Joo
-- Zhu will probably face Zhou Mi  in the QF
Wang Lin  vs Yip Pui Yin
Saina Nehwal  vs Jiang Yanjiao
-- one of the two CHN players will be eliminated in the QF
Hwang Hye Youn vs Wang Yihan 
-- IMHO, Wang Yihan has the smoothest route to the SF
Xie Xingfang  and Lu Lan  will surely advance to the QF and 1 will be eliminated.
From the rankings, it appears that Lu Lan should be pretty assured of 1 spot in the WC. Xie Xingfang should be the next one with the highest points. I am also pretty sure Zhu Lin and Jiang Yanjio will be out of contention given Zhu's poor form and Jiang's low ranking.
The last 2 spots should go to Wang Lin and Wang Yihan.
