Jakarta | The star wars of Blibli Indonesia Open 2019 BWF Tour Super 1000 will start soon in Istora Senayan, Jakarta on Tuesday (16/7). The Indonesian team claims that they are all ready to fight with the hope of getting the best result possible

As stated by the Indonesian Men’s Doubles pair, Mohammad Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan, the World’s No. 4 rank has the target to reach the semi-final. “The initial target is to reach the semi-final,” said Hendra Setiawan during the press conference in Media Center Istora Senayan, Jakarta on Monday (15/7).

Strong foundations have been built before the start of BIO 2019. “The Daddies” recently grabbed the title of All-England Open 2019. “The target is to at least qualify round by round. The competition is getting stiffer, our opponents are very good and much younger,” He added.

On the first match of the tournament, Ahsan/Hendra will face the English pair, Marcus Ellis/hris Langride. “We have faced them three times, and we won them all. But, that is not the baseline. They are good players; we shall not let our guard off,” He said.

The Indonesian Men’s Doubles team has the biggest chance to get the title from Blibli Indonesia Open 2019 BWF World Tour Super 1000. The reason is that, other than Ahsan/Hendra, this event will also be represented by several Worlds’ top 10 pairs, such as the World’s No. 1 pair Marcus Fernaldi Gideon/Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo and the World’s No. 6 pair, Fajar Alfian/Muhammad Rian Ardianto.
