Career summaryEdit

Women's singlesEdit

Her career started when she was selected as a member of Indonesia national badminton team that competed in 2008 BWF World Junior Championships in Pune, India as a singles player. Coming as unseeded player, she performed quite well and beat Chan Tsz Ka from Hong Kong who was seeded 9/16 in the third round 21-23, 21-15, 21-12. In that tournament, Pradipta reached the fourth round only to be beaten by Porntip Buranaprasertsuk form Thailand 13-21, 21-16, 4-21.[2]

In 2009, after such a good performance in Pune, Pradipta was chosen by PBSI to be promoted to join the national team in Cipayung as a singles player, but in early 2010, due to lack of results that she had achieved, she was finally relegated by PBSI and had to return to her club.

Change discipline and breakthroughEdit

After facing the agony of being relegated from the national team, Pradipta went back to her club Jaya Raya and tried to continue her career as an independent player. She then changed to play in doubles disciplines, and in 2011, started her partnership with Pia Zebadiah who was just recently resigned from national team. As a new pair, they won their first tournament in 2012 Vietnam International beating Malaysian pair Amelia Alicia Anscelly and Soong Fie Cho 21-10, 21-15.

They won their second title after beating Korean pair Lee Se-rang and Yoo Hyun-young 21-17, 19-21, 21-13 in the final of 2012 Indonesia International, and finally they won their first Grand Prix title in 2012 Vietnam Open Grand Prix beating Ng Hui Ern and Ng Hui Lin from Malaysia 21-17, 21-19 in the final. In October 2012, they beat Suci Rizki Andini and Della Destiara Haris 21-15, 21-12 as both pairs brilliantly making all Indonesian final in 2012 Chinese Taipei Open Grand Prix Gold. And for Pradipta/Zebadiah, it was their fourth title overall and second Grand Prix title.

In the beginning of 2013, after their good results in 2012, PBSI recognized their achievement, and called them back to the national team, this time as a double specialist. But then respectively, both players rejected the offer and continuing their career as an independent player.[3]

In early May, they won their first title of the year after winning 2013 Malaysia Open Grand Prix Gold beating the evergreen Vita Marissa and her new starlet partner Variella Aprilsasi 21-17, 16-21, 21-17 in the final. Following their good results, their world ranking was also growing rapidly and just after one and half years, the pair finally reached TOP 10 world ranking on May 30, 2013.[4]
