    Candra Wijaya and Ronald Susilo (Candra married Ronald's sister, Caroline Indriani)

    My dad told me that Rudi Hartono's sister (which is also a former player from PELATNAS) married to a Canadian badminton player. So besides Indonesian players, Rudi is also related with an ex-Canadian badminton player. That's why Bola called it 'We are the smash family'...:D

    If I'm not mistaken, Hermawan Susanto, Bronze medalist in Barcelona 1992, is Liem Swie King's nephew. Father and son relationship isn't as many as husband and wife relationship in Indonesian badminton...

    As far as I know, I don't think we follow the practice of changing the bride's surname to follow the groom's. Married women still retained their surname, eg: Susi Susanti, Megawati Soekarnoputri (ex-president), Yayuk Basuki (the famous tennis player), etc.

    Ronald has been studying in Singapore since he was young and yes, he was from Indonesia. I believe he has converted his nationalities to be a Singaporean few years ago. And he hasn't played for the U.S. team before.
