Seven days of intense badminton action last Saturday on Sept 1 ended with Ronald Susilo
(also our Youth.SG
ambassador, hubba hubba) and Xing Aiying
smashing their ways to glory.
Winning the title of Cheers National Men’s singles is top-seeded Ronald Susilo but not without some tough defence from the aggressive Kendrick Lee. It was a tense encounter between the two at 21-14, 16-21 and 21-18.
Said Ronald, “In the first game, I can control well due to the better draft. I think I finally won because Kendrick was impatient and tend to make mistakes though at one point he was leading 13-8 in the third game.”
Facing a very determined opponent in Xing Aiying, Li Li was finally defeated in the hour long game with a score line 15-21, 21-16 and 17-21.
The Women’s Singles Championship went to Xing Aiying. A beaming Aiying said, “I am very happy as this is an important competition to me and I have never won Li Li during training.” And from Li Li, “the younger players have certainly improved a lot under the coach’s training and their standards have also been raised. I will continue to work harder.”
