The individual events

Dear readers

After fighting hard for WA , the players drag their tired bodies in for the individual events.

Boys singles:

Robin Fu won his first set against Nicolas Fu in 2 sets but had to bow out to 5th seed Austin Chen in 2 sets.

Justin Lim also won his first set against Egwin Lau but had to exit the singles after losing in 2 sets to Ryan Lei.

Timothy had to go to the plate after losing to K Lew. Timothy ended up winning the plate. He brings back a medal to encourage him further in this badminton journey supported by mum Surya whom he better thank.

All 3 boys have played and fought hard for WA. Their parents should be proud of what they have achieved. I can see them in the Under 17s team fighting hard.

Girl's singles:

Cindy beat Sophia Lim in 2 sets. She then beat E Tay in 2 easy sets to get to the quarters. She lost in 2 sets to Sydney Go in the QTRS. Sydney was the eventual winner. Cindy has progressed so much as a young player. She is more serious now and more competitive. I have seen her changed from a petulant young girl to a serious player. Good on you Cindy.

Joanne beat A Watkinson in 2 sets. She then lost Y Zhang again in 2 sets. I am sure her young body is tired out from the team event. Never mind, her badminton journey has just started. Her strong spirit will see her go far.

Shakti also won her first set against B Li before losing to X Gu in 2 sets. This is another young girl that will continue to  represent WA and get stronger.  I am hopeful her supportive family will ensure that she gives her best for WA for future events.

Mixed doubles:

Robin Fu and R Nugroho won their first set but had to exit after losing to D Batra and E Zhao in 2 sets.

Justin and Shakti did well progressing to  the 3rd round before losing to A Ooi and P Kustiandi in 2 sets. 

Tim and Joanne had a better fight. They progressed to the Qtrs before losing to Jack Yu and Y Zhang
in 2 sets. Jack Yu and  Y Zhang were the eventual winners.

Boys doubles:

Robin and Justin went to the plate after losing to L Li and Winston Li in 2 sets. They won the plate and go home with a medal and a smile. Good on you boys. Remember to give your all.

Tim teamed with A Ooi. They lost in the Qtrs to K Goh and Jack Yu in 3 sets.K Goh and Jack Yu were the eventual winner.  So boys, be proud of what you have done.

Girls doubles:

Carina and Joanne lost to Sydney Go and Y Zhang in 2 sets. Sydney and Zhang were the eventual winners. Joanne and Carina won the plate and will be consoled.

Shakti and Cindy had a better run. They reach the Qtrs before losing to J Lee and E Zhao.

So, what have the team achieved:

They narrowly lost a team bronze but gave their all. This experience will bode well for their badminton future.

In the individual events the players had 3 plate winners.Not a simple feat and still to be celebrated.

I believe the players have just returned. I wish them the best in their badminton journey. Good luck all and remember to thank your parents for their support.

Thanks too to the coach, manager and umpire for their support. Till the next Under 15s tournament. Night.
