BWF profile

Liliyana Natsir (born 9 September 1985 in Manado, Indonesia) is a female badminton player from Indonesia who specializes in doubles. She is listed as one of the best mixed doubles players in the world. In Indonesia, she is often considered the queen of mixed doubles thanks to her achievements with two different pairs. Her current partner is Tontowi Ahmad since 2011, after separating from her previous partner, Nova Widianto. In 2013, she made history by becoming the first female player to win three BWF World Championships in the mixed doubles.

Early life[edit]

Natsir had dreamed of being a badminton athlete since childhood. She started playing badminton at the age of nine at her local badminton club in Manado. Three years later, she decided to move to Jakarta and entered her youth club, Tangkas Alfamart. She joined the national badminton team of Indonesia in 2002 together with Natalia Poluakan, her longtime friend from Manado. When she and Poluakan won the women's doubles title in Pekan Olahraga Nasional (National Games), Richard Mainaky noticed her game and invited her to play in mixed doubles with Nova Widianto.[3]

Career[edit]

In 2006 Natsir and Widianto won the Asian Championships in mixed doubles and four World Grand Prix titles. They won the BWF World Championships in both 2005 and 2007. While Natsir had previously focused on mixed doubles with partner Nova Widianto, in 2007 she began playing women's doubles with Vita Marissa. In the 2007 Southeast Asian Games in Thailand, Natsir and Marissa won the gold medal in women's doubles, defeating their Indonesian teammates Jo Novita and Greysia Polii in straight sets. They also helped the Indonesian women's team win the team gold medal at the games. In the beginning of 2009 Marissa resigned from national team. When this decision came out, Marissa and Natsir had to split up and each focus on their own career. One year later, in September 2010, the badminton world was surprised by the sudden split of world number #1 mixed-doubles pair Widianto and Natsir. In total, Nova and Liliyana had clinched two World Championship gold medals and 14 titles all together, and were still at world #1 when the decision was announced. Since then Lilyana has paired with the younger player Tontowi Ahmad in mixed doubles.[4]
