0 Prediksi Piala Uber (Vol. 1): Korea dihantui inkonsistensi

dua tahun lalu di Kuala Lumpur Korea (Selatan) mengukir sejarah manis. Untuk pertama kali mereka menjuarai Piala Uber. Perjuangan Taeguk Ladies sangat luar biasa karena memutus dominasi Cina sepanjang dekade pertama milenium kedua.

Tahun ini dengan formasi yang tidak jauh berbeda Korea akan berusaha mempertahankan gelar di kandang singa, atau lebih tepatnya, kandang naga. Bukan pekerjaan yang mudah karena tren pasukan Korea saat ini sedang labil, khususnya pada sektor tunggal putri. Sebaliknya, tuan rumah Cina sedang mengalami masa keemasan. Pada tahun 2010 Bae Sung-hee, Bae Youn-joo dan Sung Ji-hyun mencapai penampilan terbaik mereka. Tahun ini mereka lebih kesulitan dalam bersaing.

Lee Kyung-won/Ha Jung-eun, "history makers" di KL 2010


Korea akan lebih mengandalkan ganda mereka yang kemungkinan besar akan diwakili oleh Ha Jung-eun, Kim Min-jung, Jung Kyung-eun dan Eom Hye-won, dengan alternatif pada Jang Ye-na dan Kim Ha-na. Secara "head-to-head" pasukan ganda Korea memang kalah dari kwartet Cina, tetapi secara tim bolehlah mereka lebih difavoritkan ketimbang denmark, Jepang, atau Indonesia.

Permasalahan berada pada sektor tunggal. Single utama mereka seperti Bae dan Sung akhir-akhir ini tampil tidak stabil. Hal ini akan membahayakan peluang tim. Sementara tim-tim pesaing telah semakin mantap. Tim-tim yang semula menjadi pelengkap turnamen saat ini memiliki "kartu as" yang reputasinya dapat diadu dalam persaingan papan atas.

Korea tetap menjadi salah satu favorit juara tetapi inkonsistensi permainan mereka akan menjadi penghambat. Korea harus melakukan penyegaran karena "golden generations 2010" telah melewati puncak penampilan.

0 Prediksi Thomas Cup 2012 (Vol.1): Malaysia Butuh Lebih Daripada Lee Chong Wei

LCW

Lee Chong Wei tak diragukan lagi adalah pebulutangkis andalan sekaligus harapan terbesar Malaysia untuk ikut mendominasi arena bulutangkis dunia. Banyak gelar bergengsi yang ia telah sumbangkan meskipun Chong Wei masih merasa belum lengkap tanpa gelar juara olimpiade dan/atau juara dunia, dua kejuaraan yang menjadi targetnya selama ini.

Sepak terjang LCW melampaui reputasi para pendahulunya seperti Misbun Sidek, Foo Kok Keong, Rashid Sidek, dan Ong Ewe Hock. Pantas saja jika Malaysia begitu optimistis saat ini. Di tengah dominasi Cina mereka boleh berbangga dengan peringkat nomor satu dunia tunggal putra yang disandang pemain kelahiran George Town, Penang tersebut (setidaknya hingga pekan ke-2 tahun ini).
Daren Liew

Saat ini selain Chong Wei Malaysia juga memiliki tunggal putra berbakat yang mulai nampak berkompetisi. Sebut saja Daren Liew, Hafiz Hashim, dan tentu saja juara dunia yunior 2011, Zulfadli Zulkifli. Akan tetapi, reputasi ketiga rekan senegara ini relatif jauh di bawah LCW (bandingkan dengan Cina (Lin Dan-Chen Long-Chen Jin), Indonesia (Simon-Taufik-Tommy), Jepang (Tago-Sasaki-Yamada), atau Denmark (Gade-Jorgensen-Vittinghus). Karenanya, kehebatan Chong Wei dalam kompetisi perorangan sepertinya belum cukup untuk membawa Malaysia meraih Piala Thomas 2012.
Hafiz Hashim


Sebuah pekerjaan rumah bagi korps pelatih Malaysia. Kekuatan beregu putra negara tetangga Indonesia ini bahkan kalah solid dibandingkan Denmark. Pasalnya, selain minim kekuatan tunggal pendukung LCW, pada bagian ganda pun Malaysia sedang mengalami krisis. Duet Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong yang semula sangat berbahaya sekarang seperti telah mengalami penurunan prestasi. Malaysia perlu bekerja keras untuk menembus babak semifinal Piala Tomas yang tahun ini akan berlangsung di Wuhan, Cina, pada bulan Mei mendatang.

0 Badminton exercise: how to move your feet

Step-close (Grice, 2008:5)
Shuffle step (Grice, 2008:5)
Step-close

From the ready position, the nondominant foot is always the pivot foot and the dominant, or racket-hand foot, is the leading foot. Reaching for the shuttle with the dominant arm and leg saves time, and the subseguent push off or jump off of the dominant leg aids in a swift recovery. As yo move forward or backward, you must pivot and move, reaching  with the dominant leg as you also reach with your racket to intercept the shuttle. (see Figure 1)
Sashay step (Grice, 2008:6)
Three-step sequence (Grice, 2008:7)


Shuffle step

The shuffle step is executed primarily when moving forward toward the net or backward toward the non-dominant side. It is also optional approach used to move quickly to the backhand side of the backcourt. To move quickly to the net from the ready position, the nondominant leg swings forward at a diagonal either to the front right or the front left, depending on the desired direction. (see Figure 2)

Sashay step

From the ready position, your nondominant foot will be the pivot foot and the dominant, or racket-hand, foot will be the leading foot. Pivot and move forward or backward at a diagonal. Lead with the dominant leg as before, but do not shuffle or use the step close step. (see Figure 3)

Three-step sequence to return to mid-court

This acton allows you to move farther and faster to the net. Forehand and backhand returns require you to recover to midcourt using the same three-steps pattern as before: racket leg, other leg, racket leg. The scissoring action of your legs helps to propel you back to centercourt after your overhead returns from backcourt. The hips and shoulders rotate quickly as you throw the racket up to meet the oncoming shuttle. (see Figure 4)
