THOMAS & UBER CUPS FINALS: SOME INDON PLAYERS MAY NOT GO BACK HOME
May 21, 1998 (NEW SHUTTLENWS) - According to reliable sources close to the
Indonesian team who are here in Hong Kong for the Thomas and Uber Cups Finals,
several players may decide to stay in Hong Kong or to fly to other countries
after the tournament ends. These players, who are mostly from the Chinese
minority in Indonesia, want to avoid the dangerous political and racial
situation now prevailing in Indonesia and are looking at their options.
These players though indicate that, if they do decide not to go home after
the Finals, they will only be staying away temporarily and will return home
when things settle down.
Some of the options that these players are looking at include staying in
Hong Kong, flying to Singapore, heading to the U.S.A. for the U.S. Open, and
going to Europe or Australia.
According to one top player, they will be forced to stay away from home for a
while specially if they fail in their defense of the Thomas Cup, and that this
thought is giving them more incentive to win tomorrow against China and on
Sunday against either Denmark or Malaysia.
