Another weekend, another badminton tournament…the Yonex Sunrise Malaysia Grand Prix Gold 2009, it is the first time Malaysia hosts this Yonex Sunrise grand Prix Championship…and it is a success one…
The final has just ended, and I will be surely in front of TV…first two matches (mixed doubles and women single), it is pretty boring because China over China also…First match of the mixed doubles only with score 5 – 5 (first game) as Zhao Yun Lei injured herself and the match retired…Ends up Zheng Bo and Ma Jin won with no happy feeling…winning without a single sweat…Yun Lei cried but holding back her tears while her partner Xu Chen looked disappointing.
Next, on women single we saw Wang ShiXian from China won over Wang Xin from China as well (21 – 16, 18 – 21, 21 – 10)..a nice game to watch too…anyway, both from China, nothing exciting much…
Next, the men doubles, Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong from Malaysia, the favourited won over another Malaysian pair, Gan Teik Chai and tan Bin Shen (21 – 11, 21 – 13) in two easy games…the latter needs to improve a lot on their skill and performances, anyway, they are still new here, the junior level compared to senior, Koo and Tan who are full of experience.
Next, the women doubles, this is the match that I said a shame….the world number one, Chin Eei Hui and Wong Pei Tty from Malaysia lost terribly to China’s Ma Jin and Wang XiaoLi (21 – 9, 21 – 11). Both played a very bad games and need twork hard to improve, I think the Malaysian pair need to be scold for this, such a terrible game…Pei Tty always play not over net while Eei Hui always play out! Horrible! The home crowd came to silence during the games…world number one lost to someone with no ranking, shame!
Finally, the men single which we will always see world number one Lee Chong Wei from Malaysia against Chen Long from China…the final awaited match came with crowd cheering and supporting…It is predicted, Chong Wei won (21 – 16, 21 – 9)…Chen Long can be trained to a another player like Lin Dan in the future…anyway, he got a lesson from master of badminton, Chong Wei today…and it’s a joy he won again!
The tournament ended with China winning three matches, Malaysia in two matches, other countries??? all are eliminated…these two countries are forever aong the best in badminton especially China…Anyway, Lin Dan didn’t come for this tournament, if not it will be a hard game for Chong Wei…Anyway, Malaysia is still good in badminton…Congratz!
