Career

She began playing tennis at the age of seven and turned professional in 1990. In 1991, she became the first Indonesian player to win a major professional tennis event when she captured the singles titles at Pattaya. She won six WTA Tour singles titles during her career (all of them in Asia). Her best singles performance at a Grand Slam event came at Wimbledon in 1997, where she reached the quarter-finals.

During her career, she has recorded wins over Martina Hingis, Amélie Mauresmo, Mary Joe Fernández, Lindsay Davenport, Gabriela Sabatini, Magdalena Maleeva, Anke Huber, Iva Majoli, Anna Kournikova, Zina Garrison, and Mary Pierce. Probably her greatest triumph was over Iva Majoli when the Croatian was the French Open champion. She also became only the second Indonesian woman to win the Asian Games singles gold medal, after Lita Liem Sugiarto in 1974, when she defeated Tamarine Tanasugarn in Bangkok at the 1998 Games. She was the first player to be beaten by Lindsay Davenport in the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament, at the US Open in 1992.[1]

She represented Indonesia at the Summer Olympic Games in 1988, 1992, 1996 and 2000. At the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, she defeated Mercedes Paz and Mary Pierce to reach the 3rd round of the singles competition, where she was beaten by Jennifer Capriati.

She is also a successful doubles player, often pairing with Nana Miyagi and later Caroline Vis, and reached the top 10 (No. 9 on 6 July 1998). She won nine tour doubles titles, the most significant of which was the Canadian Open in 1997 and qualified for the season-ending Championships as one of the best eight teams of the year three times, 1996–98. Her best result in doubles competition at a Grand Slam event was in the 1993 US Open, where she and partner Nana Miyagi reached the semifinals.

In the mixed doubles, Basuki reached the quarterfinals at the French Open in 1995 with Kenny Thorne as her partner. In 1997, she reached the same stage at Wimbledon, this time paired with Tom Nijssen.

In January 1994, she married Hary Suharyadi, who was also her coach. In September 1999, she gave birth to her first child, Yary Nara Sebrio Suharyadi. She returned to playing on the tour the following year.

Her career-high world rankings were World No. 19 in singles and World No. 9 in doubles. Her career prize money so far totals US$1,657,871.

Basuki is now a coach, tennis commentator for TV and print media and a consultant to the sports minister. She also was a WTA Tour mentor to rising Indonesian star Angelique Widjaja.

Basuki retired from the professional circuit in 2004, but in March 2008 she made a return to the Balikpapan event in Indonesia, she and Tedjakusuma won the doubles competition. In May 2009, she won consecutive $25k events in Goyang and then Gimhae, both in the Korean Republic, and again, both with Tedjakusuma.

Basuki played in the doubles at the 2010 Australian Open, partnering Kimiko Date-Krumm, losing in the first round to Sania Mirza and Virginia Ruano Pascual.

In 2011, Basuki played in three WTA tournaments and five ITF tournaments. She successfully represented Indonesia in the Fed Cup, winning four matches with partner Jessy Rompies to see Indonesia back into the Asia/Oceania Group I. Her most recent appearance at in a WTA Tour event was in September 2011 at the Guangzhou International Women's Open, in which she and partner Lu Jingjing reached the quarterfinals.

As of December 2012, her most recent appearance in a professional tournament was in the ITF $25k event in Phuket in March 2012. She and partner Shao-Yuan Kao reached the quarterfinals of the doubles competition. 2013 retired.
