BiographyEdit

Kadir, an immigrant to Australia from Surabaya in Indonesia, comes from Sydney.[1]

He made two main draw appearances at the Australian Open. At the 2005 Australian Open he and Shannon Nettle received a wild card for the men's doubles event. They were beaten in the first round by ninth seeds Cyril Suk and Pavel Vízner.[2] He also featured in the main draw of the 2006 Australian Open, in the men's doubles with Todd Reid. Again facing an all Czech pairing in the opening round, Kadir and his partner narrowly lost to Ivo Minář and Jiří Vaněk.[3]

In 2009 he won two ATP Challenger titles, the Burnie International in Tasmania and Karshi in Uzbekistan.[4][5]
