Ng the Tommy gun

PETALING JAYA: National No. 3 singles shuttler Ng Tze Yong has upstaged Indonesian veteran Tommy Sugiarto to reach the second round of the Indian Open badminton championships.

Having cleared a tricky opening hurdle, the path now looks clear for Tze Yong to make it all the way to the semi-finals.Tze Yong is expected to power past Lucas Claerbout of France in the last 16 today before setting up a potential last-eight clash with Ireland’s Nhat Nguyen.

Tze Yong’s route has become less intimidating following the withdrawal of India’s world No. 18 B. Sai Praneeth, who tested positive for Covid-19 days before the tournament started.If all goes well, Tze Yong should find himself taking on home favourite Lakhsya Sen, who won bronze at the World Championships in Huelva, Spain, if he reaches the last four.

The Malaysian world No. 60 took 61 minutes to overcome world No. 28 and seventh seed Tommy 21-16, 14-21, 21-5 at the K. D. Jadhav Indoor Hall in New Delhi yesterday. Having cleared a tricky opening hurdle, the path now looks clear for Tze Yong to make it all the way to the semi-finals. Tze Yong is expected to power past Lucas Claerbout of France in the last 16 today before setting up a potential last-eight clash with Ireland’s Nhat Nguyen. Tze Yong’s route has become less intimidating following the withdrawal of India’s world No. 18 B. Sai Praneeth, who tested positive for Covid-19 days before the tournament started. If all goes well, Tze Yong should find himself taking on home favourite Lakhsya Sen, who won bronze at the World Championships in Huelva, Spain, if he reaches the last four. Hopes are high on Tze Yong to make a swift impact although he’s just making his second start on the World Tour. In the mixed doubles, Chan Peng Soon and Valeree Siow got their new partnership off to a flying start by thrashing unheralded R. Mohamed Rehan-J. Anees Kowsar 21-4, 21-9 in just 20 minutes. They should face little trouble resuming their winning run against another little-known home pair Kashish Sharma-Saruni Sharma today before facing their first real test with Russia’s Rodion Alimov-Alina Davletova in the quarter-finals. Peng Soon has refused to get carried away as he felt that his new partnership have not been really tested yet. “It’s a good warm-up match for me and Valeree as our opponents were not that tough,” said Peng Soon. “We combined quite well, but I’ll reserve the asse ssment until we take on a tougher pair in the later round.” Article type: metered
