Bali beyond the beaches

The villagers of Tenganan Pegringsingan have long believed this to be so and the test results validate their claim to be descended from one of Bali’s oldest races. Traditionally the home of warriors, the village, near Candidasa, on Bali’s east coast, has retained customs and beliefs now very different from the rest of the island. The best archeological guesses estimate that the village dates from the 11th century, though not even Sadra, regarded as the local historian, can be sure.

MAKASSAR - After moving to Bali next year, the Tourism Indonesia Mart & Expo will return to this year’s host city, Makassar, in 2008. Meity Roby, chairman Steering Committee, TIME, said that provinces are now choosing to showcase at this show over their own provincial shows.She added that more provinces are vying to host TIME but they are only chosen when they can prove their financial capability. For example, Makassar was chosen because of the financial commitment of the local government and private stakeholders. “This is a show for private companies and the local government, we are not representing the central government. People often have this misconception,” she said.By 2008, Makassar would have a new toll-road linking the airport to the city. More hotels are being added. For example, a Santika Hotel Makassar will open by end of this year.

Kuznetsova and Davenport to clash in Bali semi-finals
Sep 16, 2006

DENPASAR, Indonesia - Russian top seed Svetlana Kuznetsova will meet American defending champion Lindsay Davenport in the semi-finals of the Bali International after both claimed straight-set victories on Friday.Kuznetsova, who won the title in 2002 and 2004, overcame a persistent challenge from Severine Bremond of France, winning 6-3 6-2, while Davenport, playing the 900th match of her career, overwhelmed Czech Hana Stromova 6-1 6-0.The second semi-final will be between second seeded Patty Schnyder of Switzerland and sixth seed Marion Bartoli of France.Kuznetsova always looked the better player against Bremond, but still struggled to gain the upper hand as a succession of break points went begging.The Russian world number five failed to convert four break points when leading 1-0. When she did break to lead 3-1 she dropped her own serve in the next game.Kuznetsova earned a second lead, breaking for 5-3 when her opponent netted a weak forehand, but she then had to fight off two break points as she served out the set.The second set was equally difficult to secure, with Kuznetsova eventually breaking for 1-0 on her sixth break point, and then holding off a break point on her own serve at 1-0. An increasingly frustrated Bremond then double-faulted at 4-2, and Kuznetsova safely served out the match."I know why I didn't do it (win the break points)," said Kuznetsova. "If I had a break point I wanted to do it perfect, I wanted to do something too good and I started to do a mistake. If I made it simple I would convert more I guess. But I was pretty calm today. Even if I wasn't doing well I was staying in focus."Davenport also let a succession of break points slip away against Stromova, winning only two of seven as she broke twice for a 3-0 lead. The American also held a break point for 5-0 before Stromova even earned her first game point.The second set was also quickly under Davenport's control as she surrendered just one point in the first two games, and her only difficult moment came at 2-0 when she held off two break points. She finished by winning the final 12 points."It was great," Davenport told reporters. "There wasn't much more I could have done. We still had long points but I thought I played well and overpowered her."Davenport and Kuznetsova welcome the chance to test themselves against top opposition, and both are aware that the outcome could depend on the American's serve."I think it's going to be a great match," said Davenport. "She's very dangerous and I'm excited to play. I need to serve well to win. I served well in New York and not quite as well here, and if she see's a lot of second serves and is able to dictate play with her forehand it's going to be a tough day for me."Kuznetsova is also looking forward to the match."It's the kind of high level match I'm wanting to play," she said. "I think it's going to be an interesting match. Definitely I have to move her around. The key of her game is her serve. I'm looking forward to play it."Schnyder ended the run of Hungary's Melinda Czink, easing her way to a 6-2 6-2 victory, and Bartoli was also an easy winner against 103rd-ranked Russian Olga Poutchkova, winning 6-2 6-4.
