The Perfect Match

Possessing the right mix of skill, speed and most importantly, chemistry, the mixed doubles pair of Yang Zi and Wang YueGu are starting to look like the perfect match.

 

Playing together since the 2007 world championships, the reigning Commonwealth Games champions are aiming to get past the quarterfinal hurdle after a hard fought victory over the Koreans at the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam yesterday.

 

A nervy battle that could have gone either ways, it was Singapore who took the initiative when the game was tied a 3-3 to win the match in the last game with an 11-5 score.

 

Now the only thing that stands between them and a semi-final spot that comes with a medal guarantee is the Japanese pair of Seiya Kishikawa and Ai Fukuhara.

 

It may not be an easy task but the pair of Yang and Wang would definitely be spurred on by the fact that this was the pair that knocked out their compatriots Gao Ning and Li Jiawei.

 

A lot of pressure may be placed on their shoulders now as they are our last medal hope but looking forward to the game Yang Zi said, "We're lucky we've got in and managed to make a breakthrough this time, after bowing out at the same stage in the last two world champs. The Japanese pair are very good and it's going to be a 50-50 battle.”
