I'm going to post this thread while I have this question on my mind; otherwise I'll keep forgetting to ask.

What is the name, nationality, age, etc. of Vilas' new wife? (married I think within the last 2 years) Also, what's the name & gender of their new baby?

The cameras have shown her beside Vilas in the stands at Roland Garros for many years. She was always announced as Vilas' girlfriend for the longest & no more information than that.

She has a unique facial look with beautiful long black hair. Her ethnicity could be either Latin or South Asian.

I heard/ read she is Thailander (sp.?), but I might be wrong. Her name is Pian Pa Tou or Phiang Phathu (at least thatīs the name that appeared in Arg. press). And the baby is a girl named Andanin.

You're right she is Thai and very small.

She is Thai. Very small.

She is very ugly for me. I recently saw them together in a Buenos Aires restaurant.

I think that, she is the only one who can stand Vilas. :) :)

Wow, I think she's easily the best looking of the players' women. However, she looks more like Vilas' granddaughter than his wife.

And I agree with lorenz, she must be the only one that can stand Vilas :lol:

Anyone know more about her? How they meet (was it in Thailand?).
In Switzerland, there is this terrible trend where the men are going to meet women (sometimes only prostitutes) in Thailand, and bringing them back to Switzerland as their wives.
There is also one village in Thailand which is now called something playfully something like "miniature Switzerland" because many of the women go to Switzerland to find a man. But they often leave the man and just use him to get a Swiss pass

Good looking :confused: I hope you guys are joking she looks like she hasn't eaten in three years. I know that not everyone has got the same taste but man if you like girls that look like that :wavey: :bolt: ( and knowing that some of the board members are older that 30 :scared: ).

Your right the guy went there to Thailand, used this little child prostitute like most do, liked the f*ck so brought her with him and married her. And they've lived happily ever after :)

It's a valid possibility.

Thailand's 'Swiss village'
By Simon Montlake
Baan Jarn, Thailand


Festival day in rural north-east Thailand is traditionally a day of feasting and dancing.
For Lek Sankaprom, it is also an annual homecoming.

She has spent the past 14 years living in Switzerland, running a restaurant in Basel with her Swiss husband.

But on festival day she is happy to be back home, picnicking outside with her friends and family.

Lek is not alone in her choice of partner. Of the 540 households in Baan Jarn, at least 100 can boast a foreign son-in-law, almost invariably living in Switzerland.

Like clockwork, the wives come home every year bearing gifts.

To many Thais, Baan Jarn is known as the Swiss village - though it is surrounded emerald-green rice paddies rather than snow-capped mountains.

Scores of tall white-washed villas with tiled roofs stand out from the normal wood-and-concrete homes built in the area.

Wedged between her greying Swiss husband and her somewhat tipsy friends, 39-year-old Lek frowned when asked about local attitudes to those who marry foreigners.

"It's normal here. They accept me," she said. "I have many friends here who also married foreign men."

'Growing trend'

The spread of foreign husbands is sending ripples through many villages in Isaan, a region of north-east Thailand where rural poverty has often forced both men and women to seek opportunities elsewhere.

Researchers believe at least 15,000 Isaan women are married to foreign men, part of a growing trend over the last few decades.

These women are known as "mia farang", or foreigners' wives.

The men typically take their wives back home with them, but the couples often send money to Thailand, which pays for houses, cars and even roads.

Their remittances inject around $35m a year into the region's economy, according to the government's National Economic and Social Development Board. This amounts to 6% of the agricultural region's annual economic output.
The windfall has prompted the governor of Roi Et province, where Baan Jarn is located, to try to recruit mia farang to promote regional handicrafts and tourism.

He argues that they can become ambassadors for a region of Thailand that sees few of the 10 million foreign tourists that arrive in the country annually.

The idea has already run into problems because few foreigners' wives live locally, while many of those who do take a dim view of the governor's emphasis on profits.

Behind the economic data lies a tangled tale of social norms and discrimination.

In this region of Thailand, relationships between foreign men and Thai women are often viewed through the lens of the country's booming sex trade.

Although everyone insists their sister or daughter met their foreign partners while working as maids, cleaners or cooks, suspicions die hard.
In Baan Jarn, local residents bristle at questions about the trade that lies behind the lofty villas and brand new motorbikes.

"Go away, I don't want to talk to journalists," said one young man, his friendly smile quickly dissolving into a hard stare.

One resident explained that recent media reports had distorted the village's image, by suggesting that many young women wanted to become mia farang.

Researchers say much of the stigma attached to these relationships has begun to fade in recent years, although the stereotypes have yet to completely go away.


Everyone wants a foreign son-in-law. They know it means a ready source of income
German husband

"Society has changed in the last 30 years. Now you have television [and] the internet," said Decha Vanichvanod, director of the research centre which commissioned the survey of foreigners' wives.

"People say, okay, if you want to marry, it should be your own choice."

Local officials in Baan Jarn point to the positive qualities of the foreign sons-in-law whose wealth has transformed the village in the past 20 years.

"Even the old men are starting to change their attitude," said Saksri Khomdet, a village chief.

"Before they worried that the women would move overseas and not be treated respectfully," he said.

But foreign husbands say local people's acceptance of them is often more about hard currency than Isaan customs.

They point out that the Roi Et governor's enthusiasm for mia farang is mostly based on their economic yield.

"Sure, everyone wants a foreign son-in-law. They know it means a ready source of income," said a German who married a local woman three years ago.

Well I hope they are happy and wish them well with the new baby. I saw them together in Cinci as he was practicing and she played ballgirl. I thought they were sweet together and he appeared to have loads of affection for her. So again best of luck to them and their new family.
