Indonesia Open ‐ Created by

The final of Djarum Indonesia Open Super Series Premier 2013 qualification round went excitingly.


One is worth to be mentioned is a
match between an Indonesia pair, Wahyu Nayaka Arya Pankaryanira/Ade
Yusuf and Marcus Ellis/Paul Van Rietvelde from England/Scotland.

The 65 minute match was finally won by the home players supported by
thousands of fans at Senayan stadium. They won the match with three games.

"In the first game we were still unable to read their styles as we had
no idea how to deal with them until we were finally able to turn
things around by deliberately spotting their style," Wahyu explained.

In the first game they were left behind quite far with 1 - 7 before
they hit back at 17 and turned the game and won with 23 - 21. The
second game went fiercely until the first half. They slightly lost
with 10 -11 at the interval, but the situation worsened as they were
left behind 12 - 17 before finally losing the game 17 -21. "We lost
our focus and concentration in the second game after the interval ,"
Ade added.

The third game was far more exciting. The players that have been
paired for a year started to lead the game. They led 11 - 7 when
changing sides. While they were on the winning track, they made the
supporters into a frenzy when they lost three points in a row.
Luckily, powerful smashes were made by the pair succeeded in closing
the game victoriously, 21 - 18.

"In this year's Indonesia Open, the coach did not put too much
pressure by setting a target, but personally, we are determined to be
qualified to the main round. Now, our target is accomplished and
hopefully we can go beyond our target," Wahyu stated.
