‘It’s not unusual to be dropped from the national team’ Jordan Melati remains fully committed to England


Indonesian mixed doubles duo Jordan and Melati will be competing as non-national players for the first time at the All England championships in March, but they remain highly ambitious.Jordan and Melati, ranked fifth in the world, were left out of the 2022 squad after their inconsistent performances over the past two years were deemed inconsistent with the style of play desired by the Indonesian Badminton association and coaches.Since winning the 2020 All England title, the pair have failed to achieve satisfactory results in subsequent tournaments, with their best performances being runners-up in Thailand and the German Open at Hilo last year.The pair’s non-technical problems at last year’s Indonesia Masters also led to a drop in results that prompted Indonesia’s mixed doubles coach, Anwar Nova, to issue harsh public criticism.Even though they are no longer on the national team, Jordan and Melati have been able to compete in BWF tournaments as non-national players, and they have even trained through a program offered by their current badminton club, Diarum.Under the Banner of The Jiarun Club, the 2020 All England champions are on a mission to achieve at least one podium finish this year, including the upcoming All England in Birmingham from March 16-20.”Since the beginning of the year, both of us have been training very hard with the club team.The goal this year is to get on the podium again in any race we enter, “melati said.”Now I have to keep working more extra hard.I wanted to instill in myself that we should always remember our goals and never let our guard down.Our goal is to continue to compete internationally.”Jordan, meanwhile, feels his and Melati’s elimination from the Indonesian team is a natural thing to see how they handle the next step.”You can be sure that we will continue to work together and promotion and expulsion are common in bWA.For us, the spirit is still there and we will be better prepared to face the game.We need to remind each other and support each other to get there.”(Both text and text are from the network, if there is infringement, please contact to delete)
