BWF profile

Mia Audina Tjiptawan (born 22 August 1979) is a former Indonesian badminton player who represented Indonesia and later the Netherlands in international competitions.[1] A badminton prodigy, Audina first played Uber Cup (the women's world team championship) for Indonesia at age fourteen, winning the decisive final match in the championship round against China in 1994.[2] She was briefly ranked as the World No.1 women's singles player in October 1996.[3] Audina helped Indonesia to retain the Uber Cup title in 1996, and was a member of the 1998 Indonesian team which relinquished the Cup to China, before moving to the Netherlands with her Dutch-national husband in 2000.[4][5]

Career

As a Dutch resident she continued to compete, winning titles in both Europe and Asia before retiring from high-level competition in 2006. Top honors in badminton's three most prestigious events for individual players, the Olympics, the All-Englands, and the World Championships, eluded Audina, though she was twice an Olympic silver medalist in singles (1996, 2004) and was a bronze medalist at the World Championships in 2003. Her most significant victories included the open singles titles of the USA (1996), Singapore (1997), Japan (1997, 2004), Indonesia (1998), Korea (2003), the Netherlands (2001, 2002), Switzerland (2002), and Taiwan (2000, 2003). She won singles at the Southeast Asian Games in 1997 and both singles and women's doubles at the European Championships in 2004. A gritty competitor and, in her youth, exceptionally mobile and supple (she was rarely forced into hitting backhands), Audina was a crowd favorite throughout her career.[1][4]
