I translated from "Kompas" daily:

By holding this tourney at Grand Hyatt Nusa Dua in Bali, the hotel management must be happy since it has affected their occupancy rate up to 60%. Bali has been suffering in terms of tourist arrival after last year bomb attack. :( :sad: At least, good occupancy rate for a week! ;)

Wismilak's commitment has been wonderful. The whole week's ticket sales will be proceed to Bali Tennis Foundation - BTF is a legal body which is developing young talented tennis players locally. As results, they have developed Ayu Fani Damayanti as a new rising junior player! :D

GO, WISH ME LUCK!!! :wavey:

it's good to hear that the tournament is boosting the balisean economy a bit. i'm planning on going there in my university holidays this year. a lot of people are surprised i'm going, especially my friends in australia, but i think we ne
ed to show these people they can't stop us from living the way we want to, because that's what they are trying to stop us from doing. sorry for that little rant

Yeah. And it's a nice resort. The security at the entry of the area (the resort is located in some kind of compound, with several other resorts / hotels) is very strict.

That's so great... Especially to Ayu.

I would love to go there.. I've been there but it was years ago. I hope by the next year I could be there..

Yes, in the past 2 years - with other local players, Ayu had the opportunity to participate in coaching clinic during Wismilak by Arantxa Sanchez Vicario! :)
