Badminton News : The All-Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) targets to at least advance to the last four for the women’s doubles pair, Siti Fadia Silva Ramadhanti / Ribka Sugiarto at the 2022 World Championships at the end of this month.
Although tough, the semifinal target is seen as something realistic considering that Fadia/Ribka are one of the senior pairs in Pelatnas who are currently ranked 29th in the world.
“Yes, if we target to win, it is impossible. We are targeting the semifinals, because we also consider the quality of their game and their experience in competing so far,” explained PP PBSI’s Head of Development and Achievement, Rionny Mainaky, to Antara, Friday (29/7).
However, don’t forget also that the two new players have been re-paired for the upcoming World Championships after Fadia is currently paired with Tokyo 2022 Olympic gold medalist, Apriyani Rahayu.
“Personally, both from the coach and the players there are no problems, and we also see from their previous quality,” he said.
Furthermore, Rionny said that intensive preparations were being carried out by the players at the Cipayung National Training Center and it was hoped that the players could give their best performance to bring home the gold medal in the grand championship which took place at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium, Japan.
“I see they have started to get fit again and training activities are back to normal. I hope that all sectors after yesterday’s championship really pay attention to all aspects ranging from physical, technical. In addition, patience and stamina must be considered, because this is a World Championship , said Rion.
Besides Fadia/Ribka, Pelatnas women’s doubles also sent two other young couples, namely Nita Violina Marwah / Putri Syaika and also Febriana Dwi Puji Kusuma / Amalia Cahaya Pratiwi.
