Sunu is a talented player...He will be 16 on April 26th...same birthday as Wynne Prakusya...His parents are from Solo, Central Java but he was born in Jakarta...He told the press 2 weeks ago that if she had no sponsors, he would say goodbye to tennis...Poor boy...I told him that if you are playing better and better, I am sure you will get one! After Sunu, it is hard to tell since no one is closer to his game...Immanuel Prakoso is about to be 18 yo, so I do not count him...Christian Adinata from Madiun, East Java is the next one, I think! Sunu and Chris are coached by Deddy Prasetyo now...

Yup, Ayu and Joana are talented and fighters...They enjoy to play all court! They mix their game...Maya likes to make UEs, she is easily getting satisfied...She used to to be a fighter but since she knows that the competition among 16 yo girls are not tough, she is slacking off...After she won "Hemaviton" Challenge last week, she told the press that she aims for top 5 nationally...It means that after Angie, Wynne, and she has to fight against Diana Julianto, Liza and Wukir...She'd better her game or else she will not get her target!

Nancy is tomboy and is physically strong but somehow her game is less consistent than Ayu, her double partner or Jojo...Go, girls!

Speaking of Diana, she'll be playing the $10K Indian Satellites starting in over 2 weeks time. She seems to always play in India!

Surprisingly, Sandy & Septi are also entered!

BTW, does anybody know why Septi changed her name from "Nindya Yutami" to "Mende"?

danker...Thanks for the news on Diana...I guess, the cost is cheaper to play in India...who knows, she likes it there maybe...As I have informed in different thread before, many foreign players do not like to play there but Diana is different case! Maybe she likes the food...

Do you mena that Sandy & Septi are entered 10K there? It is not surprising for me...I have talked to both of them 3 weeks ago and they are beginning to enter 10K this year!

BTW, Septi Nindya Yutami is full name of her and Mende is her family name!!! So, she has not changed her name actually! For the sake of international standard maybe...Nindya Yutami must be difficult to remember...

If that's the case, maybe that's the reason why Diana has declined an offer to be in Fed Cup team...How about Sandy? She should be practicing home with the other members for Fed Cup...I doubt she will be playing in India since she still has to be recovered from her both wrists' injury!

Actually after Sunu - there are other potential players like Elbert Sie (Bandung), Anthony Tan, Sandy Purnomo, Jonathan Amdanu and others who come from well-to-do families but IMO, they are inconsistent...They lost easily in Kuching this week!

Nickname for Indonesian players:

Diana is "Indian specialist" since she loves to play in India!

Angie is "shocker" as I quote from koj-e...since she creates big upset then she loses easily!

Wynne is "3 setter" since she has been playing many 3 sets this year both in sgls and dubs!

Anyone else?

Let's talk about Yayuk Basuki. Do you guys know that she was ainming for Chase in 1996 when she was able to break in to top 20. I think it was 19.. Before that she was playing great.. beat some top players.. lost in quarters.. but then suddenl;y after that some bad things start to happened.. she lost to unknown players.. in Zurich where Porshe car was rewarded.. she had to play q.draw and then she withdrew.. i mean sudden;y her luck just went..

But her achievemen in doubles was great.. i think she had playedi n Chase twice or thrice with Vis.. And she also ever partnered with Momo and some othr big names like Aranxta.. can't remebmer

I like Basuki.. she had a huge serve and great forehand and volleys.. i know her biggest enemy was Jana Novotna.. she met her like 9 times in one or two years.. and never won before..

I miss Yayuk too She is the reason why I like tennis now She is really a talented player, and I think for now, Angie and Wynne are not as good as her, but hopefully someday they can achieve better

Smile... When you do, it may change someone's day


=Good luck to my favourite players: Mirjana Lucic, Elena Dementieva, Li Na, Maria Kirilenko, Daniela Hantuchova, Vera Zvonareva, Zheng Jie, Venus Williams =

The reason why I'm surprised is because that there will be Grade 1 Junior events in Asia at the time, which would do wonders for their rankings. They could play Asian $10Ks at a better time...

Does anybody have a pic of Eveline Rusdianto? Is she supposed to be pretty?
Is she studying, because she hardly plays any events?

I agree.. Yayuk is a very successful player, I would say.. I mean she's not like Graf or Williams sisters.. but her achievement had so far proved to the indonesians that wwe could do well in sports despite our conditions

I hope Sandy will choose the Grade1 junior tourney.. i mean it's inportant to crack her rank.. and with that, Wukir and Liza can play for Fed Cup

Back to Indonesian jaguar!

Yayuk Basuki is a legend for Indonesian tennis! When she was 12 years old, she won a national tournament already! Her highest singles ranking: ranked 19th (October 6-12, 1997) and her highest doubles ranking: ranked 9th (July 6- Aug. 2, 1998)!!! Wimbledon is her best record: once 1st round in 1996, once QF in 1997, 3 times 3rd round 1991, 1998 and 2000 after she gave a birth and 4 years in a row (1992-1995) she managed to reach 4th round!

Year End Championships with Vis, she reached QF in 1996 and 1997 then in 1998 she nad Vis managed to reach SF by defeating duo Hingis & Novotna!!!

I have watched her many times such as Danamon Open/First Lady Cup (tier IV) in Jakarta when she won in 1993, 1994 and more years...I watched her in Fed Cup ties being played in Jakarta when Indonesia played against Argentina (great to see Gabby!), Switzerland (nice to See Martina & Patty), Belgium (I saw Van Roost & Appelmans)...Yayuk managed to win over Hingis in 3 sets in that Fed Cup tie and Indonesia lost 2-3!

I met her last week a couple times and I talked to her and she is still humble as usual...One crazy tennis fan said that he felt strange when he saw a shining BMW and then he found out that the driver was Yayuk Basuki...He felt funny that with such luxury car he saw a dark brown skin Javanese woman! He would have expected a white skin and beautiful woman! I told him that please do not be racist...She deserves such car...she is one of the few people in Indonesia who has been working hard...She is not like many Indonesians in the public sector or even private ones who are very corrupt!

Now, she focuses on the coaching for junior players! Go, YB!!!

I would rather to see Sandy Gumulya to play KL Grade 1...but we'll see if she is okay after such awful injuries...BTW, Evelyn is studying in USA so I wish I could take a picture of her! Yes, she is focusing on her studies since her father - Jacob Rusdianto, former badminton player and is an enterpreneur in Surabaya, East Java - wants her to continue his business!
