Silver for Sun and Wang

The Singapore pair of Sun Beibei and Wang Yuegu collected the silver at the German Open ITTF Pro Tour women’s doubles final in Dortmund on 27 February 2011, after losing a tough battle to number one ranked paddlers Guo Yue and Li Xiaoxia.

 

Despite having beaten Chinese duo Mu Zi and Wu Yan earlier to prevent an all-Chinese doubles final, Sun and Wang could not find a way past the Chinese pair, who are the current world champions, to strike gold.

 

Sun and Wang actually got to a good start and took the first set 11-9, but the Chinese proved too much for the Singaporean ladies to handle, winning the next four rounds 11-7, 11-6, 11-5 and 11-4 to run home with the gold.

 

This is the fifth silver for the Singaporean duo, who have played together since 2005. The pair is currently ranked sixth in the world.
