Oh my gawd.. Thread for Yayuk..
She is one of the reason why I'm into tennis..
She retired like I think in 1999 or 2000.. she stopped tennis at one point.. I think it's around 97.. giving birth.. and she was still pretty strong..
When she reaches the QF of Wimbledon.. it was like a big news in Indonesia.. And she lost to Novotna, her only nemesis that she can never beat.. lol.. She was so closeee to join the top 16 at that year.. but unfortunately she was sick at the indoor session.. losing to unknown player.. and during the Fildersadt (sp?) where a Porsche was awarded.. She refused to join as she had to go through qualifying round as a top 20 players..
Her Wimbledon record is very good even as atop 50 players :
00 99 98 97 96 95 94 93 92 91
WIMBLEDON 3r -- 3r QF 1r 4r 4r 4r 4r 4r
