The Individual events that has ended

Dear readers

The Individual events has ended with WA players doing their best but not excelling. Only Theodore managed a singles  plate medal.

The rest of the players had the following results:

Jonny Kok beat James Delosa in the first round in singles but lost to eventual semi finalist Ryan Venpin in 2 sets.

Jackie won his first match against Souksavat but lost in the 2nd set to Ben Chen.

Theodore lost in the first set and went to win the plate.

Bernice lost to eventual winner Majan in 2 sets. She did well and can still play next year.

Alicia went to the plate and lost to Aroonsiri in the 2nd round.

Anjali lost her first round and went to the plate before losing to Irene Chau the plate winner in 2 sets.

Bernice and Thomas Ng won their first round but lost in the 2nd to R Audley and K Ea in 2 sets,

Jackie and Alicia lost the first round to R Wang and M Zhao  therefore going to the plate. They got to the quarters in the plate.

Theodore and Viravong went as far as the semis before being beaten by R Audley and K Ea  who came in second.

Jonny and Anjali went to the plate after losing to Kolla and C Bui. They lost in the plate finals to R Venpin and I Chau.

In the BD Theodore and Souksat reached the semis before losing to eventual winners R Agustino and E Chen.

Jonny and Jackie went to the plate before losing in the final to Thomas Ng and R Tang.

Phoebe and Alixia managed to win the first before losing to A Liu and Y Say in 2 sets.

Anjali and Ann Buon went to the plate. They lost to Alicia and Ooi.

So that is the end of the tournament for the players.

I am sure they have learned heaps from this experience. They may feel disappointed  they did not do better, but I am sure they gave their all. Some may still be able to play in the Under 15s next year and will definitely do better. Others have the Under 17s to look forward to.

They must be proud to represent WA. Good luck to them in their future badminton journeys.

The players need to thank Coach Nick, Umpire Lily and manager Ian.  They have done a great job.
