Thailand deserved big congrats for sparkling performance as predicted! Thailand has better players now! Febi Widhiyanto was simply one level below Danai in terms of game quality - Danai has been playing more challengers while Febi is still struggling in Futures! That's the difference! Febi was physically worn out as well since he played 3 sets continuously in singles as well as being in doubles! IMO, over all Indonesian players are not in good shape physically! BTW, great win for Danai after 2 years ago in KL, he lost to Suwandi in final!
Indonesia began to participate in SEA Games 1977 in KL along with the Philippines and Brunei. SEA Games used to be called SEAP Games (South East Asian Peninsula). As first timer in 1977, Indonesia shocked other countries since at the end Indonesia came out as the overall champion based on the most number of medals taken. But since 1999, Indonesian sport has been declining drastically due to internal multi dimension crisis!!! But tennis has been contributing medals since 1977 until 2003 with its topsy turvy!
1977 Gold 6 Silver 4 Bronze 2
1987 7-1-2 when Wukirasih Sawondari defeated Tammy in final!
It is gonna be interesting to see who is gonna be in the squad in 2 years period - I hope, I can see Sandy, Maya, Septi and Ayu in Manila! Go, girls! Or maybe Denise and Jojo?
