Singapore’s Yeo wins badminton women’s title at Hyderabad

Recommended Posts

this is an encouraging news........whats more amazing is she beats the Korean up and coming talented  player An Se Young. Those who have seen An's play  would know how good she is, she is one of the very few in the world  who could complete with and even win the best women Taiwanese player Tai Tzu Ying......i hsve not watched the game yet but will look out for it in youtube soon. 

I wish Jia Min all the best in the pursue of her badminton career.

>>>>>>

Local shuttler Yeo Jia Min won her first title of 2019 on Sunday (11 Aug) after triumphing in the women’s singles finals at the Hyderabad Open.

The 20-year-old, the top seed in the women’s draw, beat South Korea’s An Se Young 12-21, 21-17, 21-19 in a marathon match that lasted over 70 minutes. ....

>>>>>>>>

In addition, her compatriot, 22-year-old Loh Kean Yew almost made it a double singles triumph for Singapore, only to be edged out by seventh seed Sourabh Verma 13-21, 21-14, 21-16....

Likewise, all the best to Loh as well.

Badminton is one of the few sports that we have potential ..... after all, our neighbouring countries (the people are presumably made of the same stuff as us, not ang moh) have produced world class champions and dominated.

I think badminton and table tennis should be doable

those who want to watch the game can follow the link below. her game start from 1:56:00. The video quality is like a cup of plain water for  thirst quenching, dont expect too much and dont blame me for damaging your eyesight.  Midway into the game there was a 10 min black out.  Her smash is one of the most powerful among the women players. But her backhand clear at her deep left corner could be a concern, the top notch players would surely know her weakness and exploit her weakness to the fullest. Still, compare with a few months ago, her backhand clear has improved significantly. Hope she would continue to improve her skills and experience from competitions  and wishing her all the best.  and i really wish she had had a higher price money  [bigcry]  [bigcry]

This India tournament sanctioned by the BWF is the lowest of all under the "super 100" level with lowest prize money and points. Meaning most good players will skip this round of competition. The Singapore Open super 500 held in April this year our local shuttlers barely even make a mark. 

 

Singapore is still far far away compared to it's neighbours Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. Their 2nd team can easily beat our 1st team. LKY beat Lin Dan during the Thailand open early this year is a fluke.  :ph34r:

iirc she was born in Singapore and became a citizen around 2011 when she was 12.

 

no one can say her skills and talents were developed and honed in a foreign country.

Those who are familiar with badminton would know Yamaguchi's legs were badly injured before/during the game, which have partly contributed to her loss.

But Jia Min 加油! A win is still a win, this is what sports/competition is all about. Hope this win will motivate her to train better and be a more competitive player in the international circuit. To deal with the top few women players is never easy. Wishing her all the best again and hope to see more success from Jia Min.

 

On the lighter note, my knee is also injured now and still have not recovered for months , looks like I have a world class players problem. Haha

Negative minded people have nothing good to talk about, why bother ?

Look at it this way, this is where she could gain more exposure and yet stand a good chance to win, after that move up the circuit from there. No one knows how to walk from day one, it is all about learning and progressing . We should encourage her, one step at a time.

I watched her play last night, simply amazing. Her technique, skill and stamina looks like taiwan Tai Tzu Ying. High potential to be world top 10
