Badminton News: Malaysia ended their Uber Cup championship in Aarhus, Denmark on a disappointing note after a shock 1-4 loss to Canada on Monday (October 10th).
Malaysia have already been knocked out of the group stage after losing to China (0-5) and Denmark (1-4), but the youth team led by SEA Games gold medalist S. Kisona should come out head held. high because there is an intense game “that can be won” on paper against Canada.
Canada are without world number 11 Michelle Li, who pulled out of her first match with China’s He Bingjiao after fears it could worsen her Achilles condition in both legs.
However, Kisona failed to capitalize on Michelle’s absence in the opening singles as she lost again, this time to world number 183 Talia Ng 9-21 14-21.
World No. 53 Kisona also lost 11-21, 7-21 to Denmark’s Mia Blichfeldt, which saw her rest against China.
Canada then doubled the lead as world number 20 pair Kristen Tsai/Rachel Honderich parried an impassioned challenge from Teoh Mei Xing/Yap Ling to win 13-21, 21-10, 21-14.
Malaysia relied on Eoon Qi Xuan to reignite the team’s resistance, but world number 123 also lost to world number 185 Rachel Chan 12-21, 13-21.
The result was certainly disappointing, especially after Qi Xuan had just beaten world number 23, Denmark’s Line Christophersen, for the biggest win of her career.
The first combination of Mr. Thinaah and Go Pei Kee led to a 21-12, 21-13 win over Catherine Choi-Crystal Lai but came a bit late.
In the last match, World No. 778 K. Letshanaa tried his best to get a consolation point, but it wasn’t enough to defeat World No. 269, Zhang Wen Yu. He lost 17-21, 21-16 and 12-21.
