Wow, only 20%?!
That's even less than the CTA...
How are the financial backgrounds of these players? Aren't their families able to support them or is it absolutely necessary (finance wise) for the players mentioned to be under Mama Martina? I used to think Sandy was of a pretty privileged background.
Speaking of 20%, that's why Septi Mende, Maya Rosa left the national camp. Moreover, the physical training is always inconsistent there. In terms of financial background, I also used to think that Sandy is quite well off but apparently her dad's business has been struggling. Lavinia's family is able to fund on their own but it seems only for tour in the Asia Pacific region. Jessy's dad is a retired man now. Lutfi's dad is a local tennis coach in Kudus, small town in Central Java. Vivien Silfany's family is also tough to be on their own. Vivien Silfany and Lutfi are recently employed by Pertamina, the state owned oil & gas company (Mia Sacca also) so they may get fund from their employer for their tour and education if they decide to go university. But for the time being, BMW is the sole financier for all these gals...
As far as I know, in Indonesia - the richest family is Diana Julianto's but you know she decided to go on her education in China. I saw her 2 weeks ago at Bandung ITF Grade 4 when she chatted with Yayuk Basuki. Next, we all know - the Widjajas, Angie's family. From Surabaya, the Limantoros must be a rich family. Their daughter, Christina Limantoro, 15 yo has been trained at Bollettieri's camp in the past year. I saw her picture when she played her 1st two ITF grade 4 in Thailand recently. Christina looks like Dellacqua indeed, body wise. In the two tourneys, she lost in 1st round, so no point gained. I doubt that Christina is a talented player.
As of now, I do not expect much on Sandy anymore. I bet on Jessy's bright prospect. Then the next layer is two 14 yo, Grace Sari Ysidora and Chyntia Melita Setyawan (now they are in ITF team U-14 touring Europe) but again these gals desperately seek sponsors. BMW has been trying to get them, especially Grace but both players have been refusing BMW's offer. Grace has been coached by Angie's former coach, Meiske Wiguna who coached Angie until she was 13 yo. Chyntia has been coached part-time by Angie's coach, Deddy Tedjamukti. Chyntia has a big forehand for junior nationally and has power, in par with Jessy. While, Grace has the best backhand among junior players nationally.
Latest development, Nadia Ravita, 13 yo - niece of Deddy Tedjamukti - has been progressing in U-16 nationally. She has good groundstrokes, typical attacking baseliner. Her shortcoming: her height (very tiny). She has been defeating older players in the last 3 months. Nadia's dad, Hawin Sutopo was once in the national squad for Davis Cup. Her mom, Luky Tedjamukti, Deddy's younger sister - was once in the national team for SEA Games 1987. It is such an enjoyment to watch Nadia's game. I just hope, she can grow a bit taller.
