Just got the news from her coach, Mrs Wiguna (former coach of Angie Widjaja) that Grace is nominated to be trained by ITF and to be a member of ITF team under 16. If she is chosen then she will travel to Europe for several tourneys over this summer. I hope, she can make it!!! It will be a great exposure for her to play on European clay courts.
Last year, Grace was the anchor of Indonesian team in the World U-14 championships in Prostejov, Czech Republic.
Soon, she will play in Asian U-14 Championships in Jakarta to be slated from March 25, 2007.
Then, in May 2007 - she will be together with Beatrice Gumulya and Karyn Emeralda representing Indonesia in Junior Fed Cup (to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia).
Last week, she came out as runner-up in Grade 4 of Kuala Lumpur in which she lost to Anne-Christine of Canada in 3 sets. Out of 9 tourneys since last June, Grace has reached 3 finals and 1 title in Brunei grade 4.
Grace is currently at ITF 230.
All d best, Batak gal!!!
