    Tontowi can't cover entire court by himself :) LOL. It is evident in Singaporean Open. How could they win AG?

    Logical, even if Natsir wants to play.. she needs a lot of time off.

    Farewell Butet... She is surely a legend in INA badminton long history. She surely is leaving at the top.

    So Natsir postponed her retirement? Will Tontowi still play with a new partner in Taipei?

    It's remain a question whether butet it's already retired or is she still gonna play in indonesia masters next year, I hope she's gonna play in indonesia masters next year...just so she can get the farewell she deserved.

    BTW, just curious...where do guys rate LN in all time list ? top 3 ? top 2 ? or even the GOAT ?

    Retirement calling for Tontowi Ahmad, happy retirement and good luck for his next chapter of career outside badminton!

    Tontowi Ahmad – A Skilful Player Who Left his Mark
    Monday, May 18, 2020
    TEXT BY DEV SUKUMAR | BADMINTON PHOTO
    https://olympics.bwfbadminton.com/n...owi-ahmad-a-skilful-player-who-left-his-mark/

    Olympic gold medallist and two-time world champion Tontowi Ahmad’s decision to call time on his international career brought the curtains down on an eventful career.

    Ahmad’s retirement comes a year after that of his partner Liliyana Natsir with whom he won all his major accolades, including the Rio 2016 gold, world titles in 2013 and 2017, and three straight All England crowns.

    The ‘Owi-Butet’ combination was a striking one; Natsir had already established herself as one of the premier mixed doubles players during her time with Nova Widianto; Ahmad was able to bring his own unique skills to complement her. However, while Natsir was noted for her solidity, Ahmad was more of a maverick – able to achieve stratospheric heights, but at times prone to error.

    These characteristics were most in evidence during the World Championships of 2013 and 2015. At the World Championships 2013 in Guangzhou, it was Ahmad’s initiative at the death – when the Indonesians were two match points down in the final – that saw them through to victory; a couple of years later in Jakarta, Ahmad and Natsir were flying high against Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei in the semifinals, before a couple of errors from Ahmad turned into stunning meltdown for the local heroes.

    ================================

    Career's Highlight (with Liliyana "Butet" Natsir) :
    - Olympic Champion : 2016 Rio Olympic Games
    - World Champion : 2017 Glasgow, 2013 Guangzhou
    - All England Champion : 2012, 2013, 2014
    - Asian Games : 2014 Incheon AG Silver Medalist, 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Bronze Medalist
    - Asian Champion : 2015

    I'm like you, I've never seen Nova Widianto play in an international tournament, and we talk about it a lot

    To me, Natsir is definately the GOAT in XD, together with Gao Ling.
