Berichte von den Turniertagen, Ergebnisse...(Quelle: Worldbadminton/IBF)

16/05/2001 : There's only a matter of days to go before the start of the VII Sudirman Cup (world mixed team championships), and the 54 competing nations have submitted their team lists to the International Badminton Federation.

The six badminton heavyweights vying for the title in Group 1 - China, Denmark, England, Indonesia, Korea and Sweden - have put forward their biggest names in the hope of taking home the biennial trophy, contested from 28 May - 2 June at Seville’s San Pablo Stadium.

After scooping a hat-trick of Cup titles in Denmark two years ago, top seeds China (drawn in Group 1 A) have fielded seven of their twelve medallists from the Sydney Games in a bid to make it four in a row in Seville. Olympic gold medallists Gong Zhichao, Ji Xinpeng, Zhang Jun and Gao Ling combine with the youthful exuberance of world junior champions Zhang Jiewen and Wei Yili to form the great wall which sets them apart from their closest rivals, Denmark, who’ll be looking for their first ever Sudirman Cup crown.

Drawn in Group 1 B with Indonesia and England, the Danes will be hoping to find the form which has escaped them in recent events. World numbers ones Peter Gade and Camilla Martin will spearhead the European campaign, accompanied by the experienced and in-form Michael Sogaard and Rikke Olsen, Jens Eriksen, Mette Schjoldager and Jesper Larsen.

In a change of policy after originally playing down their Sudirman Cup chances, Indonesia have also selected some hard hitters for their team, which includes Taufik Hidayat, Sydney silver medallist Hendrawan, All England champions Tony Gunawan and Halim Haryanto and former world champions Candra Wijaya and Sigit Budiarto. Bereft of any formidable challengers in the women’s only events, Indonesia will be hoping to notch up enough wins in the men’s singles, and men’s and mixed doubles to pull them through.

England, who are enjoying promotion to the top-flight after winning Group 2 in 1999, will be fighting for their survival amongst the elite along with fellow underdogs Sweden.

Still troubled by a knee injury in need of surgery, Simon Archer will lead the English bid, hoping to cement his partnership with 22-year-old Gail Emms in preparation for the individual event.

Korea, who’ve fielded a comparatively smaller team than their rivals in 1 A, will rely on the in-form Lee Hyun Il, and the experience of Ra Kyung Min, 1999 world champions Ha Tae Kwon and Kim Dong Moon, and runners-up Lee Dong Soo and Yoo Yong Sung.

Meanwhile, in the Group 2 battle for promotion, Malaysia will be pinning their hopes on Wong Choong Hann, Ong Ewe Hock and doubles pairs Choong Tan Fook, & Lee Wan Wah, and Chan Chong Ming & Chew Choon Eng when they take on Japan, Germany and Ukraine in Group 2 A. As expected, Swiss and Japan Open champion Roslin Hashim will skip the team event to concentrate on his World Championships bid.

In Group 2 B, Mia Audina Tjiptawan is set to step out in Dutch colours in her first team event for her new country. Personal problems saw Audina withdraw from the 1999 event in Copenhagen, where she was due to play for Indonesia.

Now, two years on, with a new husband and a new country, Audina will be hoping to help ensure the Netherlands make the top group and a chance at the Cup when the event reaches home soil at Eindhoven in 2003.

As well as the Netherlands, the other Group 2 B teams (Scotland and Chinese Taipei) should underestimate Thailand at their peril ﷓ following the unexpected success of their men''s team at the Asia Cup in Singapore, the Thais have proven they''re a force to be reckoned with.

Day One at the Sudirman Cup

Report by William Kings, photos by Raphael Sachetat

28/05/2001 : First came the controversy with Gibraltar’s age-old feud with Spain causing them to play under an International Badminton Federation banner on the opening day of the Sudirman Cup world mixed team championships as badminton came to Seville big time.

It didn’t make much difference as the Rock Island Line managed just 22 points as they crashed 5-0 to Luxembourg.

Then came Lithuania, who had driven for four days and three nights to reach the San Pablo Stadium – the new Mecca of Badminton – only to fall to former world No 1 Morten Frost’s new charges South Africa. The hero for Lithuania was Aivaras Kvedarauskas, who beat Michael Adams 15-7, 15-2 to make the rubber 1-1 and gave Frost a little chill … but not for long. Just over an hour later he sported a warm glow in the steamy heat of the San Pablo.

Seven matches in the morning action then nine in the afternoon and plenty of quality players on show even before the big guns of Groups One and Two came out to play.

GadeThe pick of the afternoon action was the sight of new All England champion Pullela Gopichand playing – and edging out - Welshman Richard Vaughan 17-16, 15-3 as India kicked off with a 4-1 win. Gopichand is so reminiscent to so many of the great Prakash Padukone, who won the All England in 1980. How fitting that the great man was sat right behind his court, reporting the contest.

Aparna Popat’s absence through examinations had allowed Commonwealth champion Kelly Morgan to give Wales a two-game win and the lead. But after that the wheels came off and they lost the other four rubbers in straight games. It could have been different if Neil Cotterill had not been forced to pull out at the last minute as his wife gave birth.

And just before the big boys and girls took centre stage there was time for Bulgaria – without “Uncle Bulgaria” Puzant Kassabian, at 60 saving himself for the men’s doubles – to edge out France 3-2.

China and Denmark, the winners and runners-up in 1999, got their campaigns off to the perfect start. Favourites China, chasing a fourth Sudirman Cup win in a row, beat Sweden with Olympic and All England champion Gong Zhichao winning easily enough against Marina Andrievskaya to secure the 3-0 winning lead and they went on to take the tie 5-0.

Denmark, with world champion Camilla Martin and fiance Peter Gade (pictured), both winning in less than half an hour, won the first three rubbers to leave England hot and bothered in Group 1B. And they were positively sweltering by the time the Danes completed a 5-0 win.

England’s European women’s doubles champion Donna Kellogg became the first player to receive a second yellow card since the new disciplinary code was introduced worldwide in February. Last week she was yellow carded for screwing up the shuttle in the 4-1 warm-up defeat by Japan. This time it was the same offence and the same colour as she and Nathan Robertson lost 16-17, 15-7, 15-10 to Jens Eriksen and Mette Schjoldager.

JiIt was a similar story for China as they brushed aside the Swedes in Group 1A to add strength to the view that England and Sweden will contest the Group One relegation/survival match.

China, though, had that ring of confidence. An Olympic ring of confidence, in fact, with those first three wins coming from Sydney gold stars Zhang Jun and Gao Ling, Ji Xinpeng (pictured) and Gong Zhichao.

Holland, one of the contenders for promotion from Group 2, got their campaign off to a solid start by beating Scotland 5-0.

It wasn’t the Scots’ day on or off the court. On top of the team losing, the Scotland officials’ bus broke down, they had to queue 90 minutes to get their passes to the arena and all that after they were denied an early-morning swim at their hotel!

Malaysia, hoping to bounce back after relegation from Group 1 in Copenhagen, started well under coach Park Joo Bong, beating Ukraine 5-0 in Group 2A.

But tomorrow’s another day in the city that never sleeps.

KelloggCOLOUR CODING!

This is the first world championships to be played since the introduction of the football-style disciplinary cards in February.

On Day One:

Bad Boy

Pavel Mecar of Slovakia saw yellow for intimidating a line judge

Donna Kellogg (pictured) of England saw yellow for shuttle abuse, namely screwing up the shuttle without permission. Yellow card – just as she was yellow carded in England’s 4-1 defeat by Japan at Stevenage in England on May 22.

Day Two at the Sudirman Cup

Report by William Kings, pictures by Raphael Sachetat

29/05/2001 : The heat is on at the Sudirman Cup as teams start to reach the point of no return.

KelloggEngland suffered their second defeat in a row when they lost to Indonesia despite a brave and battling 95- minute win by Donna Kellogg (pictured) and Gail Emms in saving three match points to win the opening women’s doubles in their clash with Indonesia.

In the lower divisions Wales were feeling the pressure brought on by injury problems after losing 5-0 to Hong Kong, their second defeat of the opening two days.

And Scotland were struggling to preserve their Group 2 status after folding against Thailand 5-0, having opened up with a 5-0 defeat by the Netherlands.

While Wales lost Neil Cotterill because of his wife giving birth, Scotland, too, suffered a pregnant pause with Fiona Sneddon ruled out by pregnancy and Scotland No 1 Bruce Flockhart’s career going part-time because of work commitments.

“It’s going to be tough from now on,” said Scotland coach Dan Travers. “In fact, it already is.”

Amid this suffering, holders China and 1999 runners-up Denmark were able to enjoy a rest day.

But for England the prospect of a relegation clash was made certain when Korea got the better of Sweden in the Group 1A clash by a resounding 5-0.

KimKim Dong Moon and Ra Kyung Min got the Koreans off to the perfect start and it was Ra who finished the job with Lee Kyung Won in the women’s doubles 15-0, 15-4 against Johanna Persson and Sara Persson as Korea didn’t drop a game.

England, like Sweden, were made to suffer too. But at least England’s No 1 women’s doubles pair got a much-needed win. It was a particular boost for Kellogg, the European champion who has had to endure a frustrating season plagued by foot problems which has curtailed her activity.

So much so that she and Emms have been waiting all year to start their new partnership. Emms said: “It’s great to get started. We’ve only played in one other tournament so far. We got to the quarter-finals of the Japan Open. There’s a long way for us to go yet but we’ve got games to suit each other so it was definitely the result we needed.”

And Kellogg, who for the second day in a row had figured in the longest match of the championships, said: “Even at 14-11 down we just didn’t give in. We never believed we could lose that match. It was a good result for us.”

By the time Olympic bronze medallist Simon Archer made his first Cup – albeit brief ﷓ appearance England were already a beaten side. Archer fell on court and conceded the match, raising concerns about his fitness for the individuals, which start next week.

Meanwhile, Malaysia edged out Germany 3-2 and Japan beat Ukraine 4-1 to set up tomorrow’s showdown to decide who is top of Group 2A.

In Group 2B Thailand and the Netherlands will fight it out at the top for promotion to the elite group for the 2003 competition. A feat the Dutch will certainly want to achieve, as they’ll be playing on their own turf.

China in charge - Day three of the Sudirman Cup

Report by William Kings, pictures by Raphael Sachetat

30/05/2001 : China charged into the semi-finals of the Sudirman Cup by racing into a 3-0 winning lead against Korea in the San Pablo Stadium tonight – and left no-one in any doubt that they remain the team to beat.

The Chinese, chasing their fourth Sudirman Cup in a row, had already disposed of Sweden 5-0 and went on to beat Korea 4-1.losing just the final women’s doubles.

With Korea capably dealt with too, they could afford to relax and wait to see what was going on in the other semi-final where Denmark rested both Peter Gade and defending women’s champion Camilla Martin as they fought it out with Indonesia.

The winners of that clash would avoid the Chinese in the semi-finals on Friday but Denmark’s defeat – clinched when Sigit Budiarto and Flandi Limpele ran away with the men’s doubles in the third game - meant that the 1999 Copenhagen finalists would meet in the semi-finals with Korea taking on Indonesia in the other clash.

China got the best possible start against Korea when Olympic champions Liu Yong and Gao Ling came from behind to beat Kim Dong Moon and Ra Kyung Min 8-15, 17-14, 15-4 in 71 minutes. How Korea would have loved to have sneaked that second game.

Zhou Mi then squeezed past Jun Jae Youn 11-5, 13-10 in 36 minutes and when All England runner-up Chen Hong got the better of Shon Seung Mo 15-8, 15-6 after 42 minutes, the Chinese were on a roll. From 3-0 they swept to 4-0 with Zhang Jun and Zhang Wei beating Ha Tae Kwon and Yoo Yung Sung 15-5, 15-13 in 40 minutes.

Not so Denmark, for whom Michael Sogaard and Rikke Olsen lost the opening mixed doubles to Bambang Suprianto and Minarti Timur in just 31 minutes, falling 15-11, 15-7.

Anders Boesen, deputising for Gade, pushed Hendrawan hard for 75 minutes and almost pulled off a surprise before being edged out 9-15, 15-2, 15-13.

But the Danes gained a foothold when Mette Sorensen held her nerve after two really close games to edge home against Yuli Marfuah 9-11, 13-10, 11-6 in 54 minutes.

Then came Jens Eriksen and Jesper Larsen, knowing they had to win to take the tie into the deciding women’s doubles. They won the first game 15-10 but the Indonesians squared things 15-8 and took the decider 15-3 with the Danes never in it. But the Danes won the final women’s doubles to make the final score 3-2 to Indonesia.

Friday’s semi-final line-up

Indonesia v Korea (12 noon)
China v Denmark (18.00)


and the Group One relegation play-off

Sweden v England (15.00)

THE Spanish fans in Seville may not yet be getting behind the tournament but the Spanish squad certainly were as they drummed non-stop of empty water drums in urging their mixed pair of Jose Antonio Crespo and Dolores Marco Gomes to victory over Vitali Shmakov and Vlada Tcherniavskaia to earn a 3-2 triumph and secure a promotion play-off against the Czech Republic tomorrow.

Denmark misses their chance against China

Report and pictures by Raphael Sachetat

01/06/2001 : The expectations were great for the Danish team before the semi-final of the Sudiman Cup against China for a rematch of the final of the 1999 edition.

SogaardThey were even greater after the first four matches, when Denmark and China were even 2/2 before the men’s doubles. But then fate repeated itself, and once again there will be no European flag on top of the world of badminton in a team event.

“Everything is going as we had hoped so far: we had planned to lose in the group match against Indonesia to play China in the semi-final,” said the Danish coach Kenneth Larsen just before the deciding match between Larsen/Eriksen and Zhang/Zhang. “It was good because Camilla and Peter would have had two days of rest before the big match against China, and secondly, because we had better chances against China than against Korea, whose doubles seemed very hard to beat. So we are very happy that we could level up with the best opponent. Now it is a 50/50 chance to win,” added Larsen just before his men’s doubles entered the central court.

Everything had started well for the European Champions: Rikke Olsen and an impressive Michael Sogaard (pictured) put an end to their many defeats against Olympic champions Gao Ling and Zhang Jun. Gao Ling had started the day in a quite unusual way, hitting the umpire with the shuttle while training…

Playing quite close to the net, very aggressively, the Danes didn’t leave the chance for Zhang to place his big smashes, and won 15/11 – 15/8 in less than 45 minutes. “It felt very good because we were eager to beat them as they had beaten us the last two times really closely,” said Rikke Olsen.

GongYet China levelled up few minutes after, with an extraordinary Gong Zhichao (pictured), who seemed quite unreachable. Camilla Martin must have felt like her usual opponents: she might have never been so hardly beaten at a high level competition: 11/1 – 11/0 for the tiny Chinese, even if the points were much closer than the result shows. “Camilla didn’t play that bad, it’s just Gong who was just too good. But she has trained hard and you should expect her to play well in the individual event,” said her boyfriend Peter Gade.

Gade was the big satisfaction for the Danish team. After losing to Chen Hong in Japan few weeks ago, he was expecting a tough match against the young Chinese, whose incredible last few months let him reach the world number 4 spot. “I was insecure about this match, even if the level of my self confidence is growing, this is why I tried to put a lot of pressure on Chen since the very beginning of the match,” said Gade.

Quickly leading 14/6, the Dane seemed unstoppable. “I was playing very well at the beginning, yet at one point, with the heat in the hall, I felt like I had no power for explosion in my legs, and I also started to commit unforced errors,” explained Gade. The Chinese took the opportunity to grab one point after the other, until he reached 14/14, and even led 15/14. “Then, I started attacking again to finish up the set - I should have done this long before – and I could take the first game, which gave me a lot of confidence for the second one,” added the tall blond man.

The second game saw Chen Hong play his regular game of attacking, taking the shuttle really early and intercepting with quick jumps. He led 6/2, but the Dane realised he had to take control of the game, and kept the shuttle as low as possible in order to prevent his opponent to put his very fast attacks moving. Gade was then able to conclude the match to give a 2/1 lead over China. “Of course, I am very happy about the way I played today, but I am very disappointed for the team, because we had a chance to win this Surdiman Cup here. But Chinese women´s doubles were very strong, and Jesper and Jens were just not in a good day. It could happen to anyone of us,” added the world number 2.

Not a good day indeed for the Danish pair, whose number one spot in the IBF world ranking seemed very far away from what the Spanish public saw on court. Their compatriots Ann Lou Jorgensen and Mette Schjoldager had just spent only few minutes on court to go back on the bench after a 15/2 – 15/3 disaster against Gao Ling and Huang Sui. This had led to a 2/2 overall tie, which meant Larsen and Eriksen (pictured) had the victory in their hands.

EriksenBut China has improved a lot in the men’s doubles category. They had proved it during the Asia Cup and proved it again on the central court yesterday. Zhang Jun – whose nickname is “fat boy” back in China – brought some speed in the game while his homonym Zhang Wei was in control of the net most of the time. Very cleverly, the two Chinese did everything they could to make their opponent lift up the shuttles. And of course, it was then a matter of few smashes and the points were adding on one side of the net only, until they won 15/8 – 15/9.

“I am very pleased with my team because they proved that we could count on every single category now for team events. It wasn’t true in the past, but now the men’s doubles are equally important as the ladies singles for instance » said Li Yongbo in a long post match press conference. “We now have to focus on the final’s matches against Indonesia as it will be a tough one. We are definitely favourite to win the women´s singles and women´s doubles, and then we will need only one more match to win the tie. Men’s doubles seems difficult against Wijaya and Gunawan, but there are two other matches,” added the Chinese coach.

The final will start at 13.00 in the Centro Deportivo de San Pablo, Sevilla, and as always, you can follow it live on worldbadminton.net

China retain Sudirman Cup

Report by William Kings, pictures by Raphael Sachetat

02/06/2001 : China made it four Sudirman Cup wins in a row when they came from behind to beat Indonesia 3-1 in Seville’s San Pablo Stadium today.

GunawanThe Chinese, who reached the final by beating Korea and Sweden in their Group 1 A matches then overcame 1999 runners-up Denmark 3-2 last night in a gripping semi-final, had too many big guns for the Indonesians.

Indonesia, however, started well when Olympic champions Tony Gunawan and Candra Wijaya (pictured) beat Zhang Jun and Zhang Wei in the opening rubber.

The first game was close with Indonesia edging it 15-13. But then they ran away with the second game 15-1 to win the match in 35 minutes.

But China hit back hard and within 25 minutes of action they were level. Indonesia’s Deyana Lomban and Etty Tantri had no answer to the Chinese women’s doubles pairing of Gao Ling and Huang Sui, who stormed to a 15-1, 15-2 victory.

Champions!That set things up nicely for a battle royal between Hendrawan, preferred for the final to teenager Taufik Hidayat, and Chen Hong.

Hendrawan lost the opening game 15-12 and trailed 13-12 in the second before edging out 15-13.

But it was Chen who was the stronger, winning the deciding game 15-10 after 73 minutes to put China into the lead for the first time.

It was then left to Yuli Marfuah to try to stop Olympic and All England champion, the world No 1. It was asking the impossible and Gong, who crushed Denmark’s world champion Camilla Martin 11-1, 11-0 in 26 minutes less than 24 hours earlier, fittingly claimed the win which took the cup back to China with an 11-2, 11-5 triumph after a mere 25 minutes.

A punch in the air and a clenched left fist signalled that China’s celebration party should begin.

China warns of good times to come after Cup win

William Kings reports

02/06/2001 : China´s head coach Li Yongbo sparked the Sudirman Cup celebrations in Seville this afternoon after his team beat Indonesia to lift the Sudirman Cup for the fourth time in a row.

And Li sounded an ominous warning to those nations striving to wrest the cup from them in Eindhoven in 2003.

In a eulogy of all that was good about Chinese badminton he told the world’s press: “This was a very good victory for China. But more important than winning the cup was the fact that China did so with some very young players.

“Some of the other teams have older players, players who have appeared in the previous Sudirman Cup campaign.

“That bodes well for Chinese badminton. It means that maybe the Chinese team can keep hold of the cup for a long time.”

The victory over inaugural winners Indonesia secured the cup but the win the previous night over 1999 runners-up Denmark was the closest contest, with China only going through courtesy of the final men’s doubles.

While China’s success left Denmark deflated and Indonesia having to settle for second best for the third time since their only win in 1989, Li Yongbo had plenty to say about the manner of China’s victory – a fitting farewell president to their IBF president Lu Shengrong, whose term of office effectively ends tonight after a record eight years at the helm.

He praised Chen Hong for his victory over Hendrawan in the rubber which put China ahead on the day.

It was a gruelling 73 minute contest but Li Yongbo revealed that he had thought Indonesia would play Taufik Hidayat in the men’s singles.

Nevertheless, he had been confident that Chen Hong would play well whoever he faced.

“He has been playing really well this week and has a good attacking game. He played the last group game against Korea and impressed me and although he lost to Peter Gade in the match against Denmark it was a contest which, with a little more luck, he could have won. He had many chances in that match.

“But I moderated my feelings and decided that it was more suitable for him to play in the final. Chen Hong got the vote ahead of our other singles players. We had confidence in him.”

But it was fitting that Gong Zhichao was the player on court when the trophy was secured.

Her win over world champion Camilla Martin the night before was the talk of the tournament. Not just because of the 11-1, 11-0 scoreline but the manner of the 26-minute win.

“Gong Zhichao played very well,” said Li Yongbo with a certain amount of understatement. “She won easier than we expected against Martin. But the scoreline was not important. What matters to China players is the win, not the score.

“That’s how we look at things. In the same way we have only been thinking about the Cup, not about next week’s individual events.

“Only now will we start to think about that. But after retaining the Sudirman Cup, we are now confident of doing well in the individual events. We have great expectations of our players.”

That may sound like good news for China … but it adds up to bad news for the rest of the players.
