Indonesia Masters: Malaysian Pair Beats English Players
jpnn.com, BALI - Malaysian men's doubles badminton players Aaron Chia and Soh Wooi Yik have advanced to the top 16 of the 2021 Indonesia Masters after defeating British representatives Ben Lane and Sean Vendy.
Competing at the Bali International Convention Center, Nusa Dua, Tuesday (17/11) morning, Aaron and Soh won through a rubber game 21-11, 15-21, 21-18 over 47 minutes.
After the match, the Malaysian pair, who was seeded fifth, admitted that they had lost momentum in the second game.
Luckily, Aaron and Soh didn't lose focus until they managed to win the third game.
"We actually started the second game slowly, we made mistakes several times. Luckily, we were prepared mentally and physically in this match," said Aaron.
Soh, on the other hand, said the shuttlecock was a little heavy, making it difficult for him and Aaron on the court.
"The shuttlecock here is different from the one used in the Sudirman Cup and Thomas Cup. In this match, it feels heavy and tends to be slow," said Soh.
The victory over Lane and Vendy led Aaron and Soh to the top 16 to challenge the host's representatives, Panjer Aji Siloka Dadiara and Bryan Sydney Elohim, who in the previous match defeated Galuh Dwi Putra and Gabriel Christopher Winta Wijaya. (mcr16/mcr20/jpnn)
