(Shanghai, November 19) Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia thrashed Boonsak Ponsana of Thailand 21-12, 21-14 in the first round of the Shanghai China Open this afternoon.

Commenting on the match, Taufik said it was a "lucky game", adding "for me, it's not really good."

Speaking of his target in the tournament, Taoufik pointed out that he doesn't have any target and "I'm just coming for playing" due to a lack of systematic training after the French tournament.

For his future, Taufik said he wouldn't be playing at the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games as well as the 2012 London Olympic Games.

He explained that "for me it's too old. In 2010, I'll be 29 or 30, no, too old."
