CareerEdit

Though she won women's singles at the 1990 Dutch Open, Minarti was primarily a doubles player, particularly excelling in mixed doubles. During the 1990s and the early 2000s (decade), she won numerous international mixed doubles titles, the majority with Tri Kusharjanto but also, later, with Bambang Suprianto. These included the Thailand (1994, 1996), Indonesia (1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999), Singapore (1995, 1998), Malaysia (1996, 1998, 2000), and Japan (2001) Opens; the Southeast Asian Games (1995); the World Badminton Grand Prix (1995); the Badminton World Cup (1996); and the Asian Championships (2000).

Minarti and Kusharjanto did not quite capture titles at any of badminton's three most prestigious tournaments for individual players: the Olympics, the World Championships, and the All-England Championships. They were runners-up at the 1997 All-Englands and bronze medalists at the 1997 IBF World Championships in Glasgow, Scotland. At the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia they had to settle for a silver medal after losing an extremely close final to China's Zhang Jun and Gao Ling.

After retired from the national team, she moved to Philippines in 2003, and started a new career as a coach at the Philippines national badminton team.[2] Timur also represented the Philippines in international tournaments.[3] In 2016, she moved back to her homecountry,[2] and later entered the Indonesia national badminton team as a women's singles assistant coach.[4]
