i believe she was referred to as the 'queen of badminton' in the early 90's.
absolutely amazing movement around the court for such a small lady, would make the perfect video for footwork training.

Here are some photos from the June 23rd 2005 "Badminton on the Street" event in Jakarta... Susi Susanti took part of the festivities, playing her role as the badminton goodwill ambassador. I highly respect her. I once rode on the same bus with her (going to the 1996 Uber Cup venue)... she was so cool, so majestic off the court. Her eyes are so deep... so determined, so focused.
Reports said that Susi is still so good at badminton that she beat Firdasari (Indonesia's #1 women singles player today) handily last year as the Indonesian women team were preparing for their Uber Cup qualifying match. People said that if Susi played Indonesia's 3rd single, we would surely still qualify for the Uber Cup...:crying:
Nia Zulkarnaen (in orange) also took part. She was the badminton associations' PR face, along with Pak Miing. Nia also played badminton when she was younger. Reportedly, Nia played in Susi's club, Jaya Raya. But regardless whether that's true or not, Nia went on to become an actress...
"Badminton on street"...interesting. Sounds like fun. I wish the U.S. were so enthusiastic about BAD.
A bit off topic-Actually that event...
...brought some criticisms afterwards, stemming from some officials & "blaming" the decision by Bang Yos(PBSI's head honcho) to "spend" so much money on such festivities. Apparently those critics argued that the money used on that festivities could've been spent to sponsor those Pelatnas players to compete overseas.. The intent was to create somekind of a World-Record of having the most outdoor badminton courts-I remember there was a post/thread on this in BC.
Anyways, I believe the event was also part of the closing festivities after some sort of ABC's Council meeting in Jakarta. The event also included several other well-known international players, i believe Morten Frost played as well.
*Btw, thanks Krisna for sharing those pics..
Isn't She like the best ever? Haven's seen anyone like her.
Susi in Atlanta 1996, Carrying the torch 2008, and some pictures of 1992.
Of course she is always become one of the my favourite player ever and forever
most elegant WS player ever!
