DIOSSP 2013 Is Getting Tough And Equal

Indonesia Open ‐ Created by

While last year's Djarum Indonesia Open SuperSeries Premier (DIOSSP) 2012 the China's athletes were among the toughests, Liliyana Natsir sees it differently as this year's ournament is going to be more competitive and equal.

Countries like [South] Korea, Denmark, Japan and even Thailand will be
difficult opponents. "All opponents are tough, the chance is equal,
even Russia itself is now showing their best performance," said Butet
who won the All England twice in a row in 2012 and 2013 together with
Tontowi Ahmad.

Tontowi Ahmad is in an opinion that based on the current drawing, the
opponents they are going to deal with have already been tough at the
first place.

In the first round, they will have to take on Denmark's double; Mads
Pieler Kolding/Kamilla Rytter Juhl.

"We have competed with the double in Denmark Open last year, and we
won. Hopefully, we are able to take an advantage in the first match.
If we win, we will probably play against our own countrymen, Fran
Kurniawan/Shendi Puspa Irawaty," said Tontowi Ahmad.
