A lucky net cord ends the match for Danny Bawa Chrisnanta/Chayut Triyachart as they beat the home favorite Goh V. Shem/Lim Khim Wah 21-17, 22-20. Congratulations to Team SIN for winning a GPG title under new management.
A moment to be treasured for Singapore as it has taken them a long time to be in the podium again in GPG Gold events and above, I believe after Yao Lei/Shinta Mulia Sari's victory at the Singapore SS a few years ago?
Heartiest congratulations to Danny/Chayut, virtually coming from nowhere to grab the MD Championship at the MAS Open GPG'14 - excellent job though it's only a GPG title but a very good start nevertheless.
SIN did not rattle and is on verge of scoring a first international for SIN 21-20.
SIN has won unbelievably, when the net cord stopped the Malaysians.
Remarkable that our qualifier MD accounted for MAS #1 & 2 seeds.!
First big pay check for Danny and Chayut. Congrats
Isn't Chayut's drenched figure a sight to remember on the podium.
They are unexpectedly effective today, with Chayut patrolling the net so efficiently, pouncing on any loose bird while Danny attacking from the back. Both deserved a fat payday (close to US$5k per person) and I really liked their combination. Let's see whether they can continue to perform well like Danny/Vanessa Yeo have done in the past 2-3 years in being at least a top 10 pair in the World (their best ranking was no 9).
