October 29, 1998 (NEW SHUTTLENWS) - Three of Indonesia's up-and-coming men's singles hopefuls stepped forward during the first two rounds of play yesterday and today at the Indonesian Open badminton championships to post upsets of more experienced and seeded players, among them one former world champion and one Olympic Games bronze medalist.

Rony Agustinus upended 1992 Olympic bronze medal winner Thomas Stuer of Denmark in the first round yesterday 15-5 and 15-7. Taufik Hidayat dumped compatriot and 1993 world champion Joko Suprianto 15-9 and 15-5 in third round action today, and 20-year old Johan Hadi Kusuma defeated Indra Wijaya, a member of Indonesia's 1998 Thomas Cup-winning team, 15-8 and 15-4.

Agustinus almost pulled off another shocker today, extending 1995 world champion Heryanto Arbi to three games before losing 15-10, 12-15 and 11-15.
