BWF profile

Hariyanto Arbi (often known as Heryanto Arbi; born 21 January 1972 in Kudus) is a former male badminton player from Indonesia who rated among the world's top few singles players in the 1990s.


The hard smashing Arbi was arguably the most internationally successful of an impressive cadre of Indonesian singles players who were his contemporaries. These included Ardy Wiranata, Joko Suprianto, Alan Budikusuma, Hermawan Susanto, and Hendrawan. Curiously he never won the open singles title of Indonesia which Wiranata dominated in the nineties. This and the Olympic gold medal were about the only prizes that eluded him. He won the coveted All-England singles title in 1993 and 1994 and the then biennial IBF (BWF) World Championship in 1995. Arbi played singles for Indonesian teams that won consecutive Thomas Cup (world team) titles in 1994, 1996, and 1998.

Arbi's other individual victories included the Chinese Taipei Open (1993, 1994), Japan Open (1993, 1995), Badminton World Cup (1994), Hong Kong Open (1995), Korea Open (1995), Singapore Open (1997, 1999), SEA Games (1997) and the badminton competition at the quadrennial Asian Games (1994).
