    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Prannoy secured a 21-8, 12-21, 21-17 win over Thailand Masters champion Kean Yew Loh
    • Mixed doubles pair of MR Arjun and Rutaparna Panda lost the opening tie
    • Ashmita Chaliha lost her women's singles tie which handed Singapore a 3-2 win

    HS Prannoy and men's doubles pair of MR Arjun and Shlok Ramchandran put up superb performances but couldn't stop Singapore from ekeing out a narrow 3-2 win over India in a group B match of the Asia Mixed Team Championships here Wednesday.

    India didn't have a good start to the five-match tie as mixed doubles pair of MR Arjun and Rutaparna Panda lost 16-21 13-21 to Singapore's Danny Bawa Chrisnanta and Tan Wei Han in the opening match.

    However, 2018 Asian Championships bronze medallist Prannoy brought India back in the contest, securing a 21-8, 12-21, 21-17 win over Thailand Masters champion Kean Yew Loh in the men's singles.

    After Prannoy levelled the tie, Arjun and Shlok put India ahead with a strong 21-16, 21-18 victory over Loh Kean Hean and Chrisnanta.

    The onus to wrap up the tie then fall on the young shoulders of Assamese wonderkid Ashmita Chaliha.

    The National Championships bronze medallist fought bravely before going down 21-17, 12-21, 16-21 to World No. 32 Yeo Jia Min in a thrilling women's singles match.

    In the final rubber of the tie, Indian women's doubles pair of Arathi Sara Sunil and Panda put up a show of grit and determination but it was not enough as Singapore's Putri Sari Dewi Citra and Lim Ming Hui prevailed 22-24, 21-15, 21-16 win in one hour and nine minutes.

    With this loss, India are placed at the bottom of Group B, trailing Chinese Taipei and Singapore.

    With most of the top Indian stars, including Saina Nehwal, PV Sindhu and Kidambi Srikanth, rested ahead of next week's India Open, the contingent had a tough task at this tournament where they lost in the quarter-finals in the previous edition.

    India next take on Chinese Taipei in a must-win encounter on Thursday.

    Chinese Taipei and Singapore reach last eight at Badminton Asia Mixed Team Championships

    Chinese Taipei and Singapore completed the quarter-final line-up as group play finished at the Badminton Asia Mixed Team Championships today.

    Group B was the only pool where the last eight qualifiers had not been decided in Hong Kong, thanks to Singapore's mixed results in their two matches.

    They lost 3-2 to Chinese Taipei but beat India by the same score, meaning all three countries had a chance of progressing going into the last fixture at Queen Elizabeth Stadium.

    The Taiwanese team were to end Indian interest with another 3-2 victory, meaning they have topped the group with a perfect record.

    Their win also sent Singapore through in second place.

    Holders Japan beat hosts Hong Kong 3-2 in today's other match.

    The sides are the only two in Group A, so were both guaranteed to go through regardless of the result.
    In Group C, Indonesia beat Thailand 4-1 to finish top with both countries already through.

    It was the same scenario in Group D as China ended at the summit after a 3-2 win over Malaysia, who had also previously qualified.

    The quarter-finals tomorrow will see Japan play Malaysia, Indonesia face Singapore, Hong Kong meet Chinese Taipei and China lock horns with Thailand.

    Every match features men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles and mixed doubles and is best-of-five.

    Play also continued today at the Badminton World Federation Orléans Masters, a World Tour Super 100 tournament in France.

    In the men's draw, Japan's third seed Yu Igarashi was a third round casualty as he lost to Finland's Eetu Heino 22-20, 24-22.

    Dutch second seed Mark Caljouw, the best ranked player left in, made the quarter-finals by ousting Germany's Kai Schäfer 21-17, 21-19.

    The women's event saw Scotland's top seed Kirsty Gilmour make the last eight after a 25-23, 21-11 win over Belgium's Lianne Tan.

    Second seed Saena Kawakami of Japan beat Thailand's Porntip Buranaprasertsuk 21-18, 21-11.

    Badminton: Singapore Badminton Association sanctions three new tournaments for 2019

    [​IMG]
    Published

    SINGAPORE - The Singapore Badminton Association (SBA)announced on Thursday (March 28) that it has sanctioned three new tournaments in 2019, two organised by Alpha Academy and one organised by Chinese Swimming Club (CSC), to kick-start the new national ranking system.

    Alpha Academy's Alpha Age Group Series Badminton Championships will be held at the United World College Dover campus from June 17-23. The championship is a tier-two competition and will be the first event to offer points towards the local ranking.

    It will cover seven age categories for singles and doubles events: Under-9, U-11, U-13, U-15, U-17, U-19 and the open category.

    The academy will also host another tournament in December, with more details to come.

    The CSC competition will be held from September 9-15 at the club's premises.

    The national ranking system was announced in late 2018 to inject greater vibrancy to the local badminton scene. It will be supported by a series of competitions that are divided into four tiers. Each tier will offer different ranking points awarded, with tier one being the highest.

    SBA honorary treasurer Victor Foo said: "When this was first announced, the intention was to introduce a healthy competitive environment to Singaporean shuttlers. It can also help them gauge how well they are performing and hopefully serve as motivation to climb the ranks."

    The national ranking system calendar starts from June 2019, with more competitions to be revealed later.

    "This is really exciting news for badminton in Singapore," said Singapore Sports School student Oliver Foo, 14. " This will surely make our local tournaments even more competitive as now there is an added incentive to outdo one another.

    "It worked well for the international scene where BWF (Badminton World Federation) has a ranking-points system, so I don't see why Singapore cannot emulate that."

    Though they lost to an unseeded pair, i think they have done well to reach the final given they are seeded 2nd. Keep up the good work.

    Lin Dan turns back the clock with first major title in two years

    Chinese badminton legend turns back the clock with Malaysia Open victory
    Apr 08, 2019 06:00 am

    Lin Dan, the battle-hardened champion who won five world championship titles and two Olympic gold medals is back; consigning Lin Dan, the weary warrior who suffered early exits in recent tournaments to oblivion.

    The Chinese badminton legend clinched his first major title in two years by defeating compatriot Chen Long, 30, to claim the Malaysia Open title at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur yesterday, bagging a US$49,000 (S$66,000) cheque and priceless ranking points in the process.

    Displaying both grit and guile, the unseeded 35-year-old came from behind to overcome fourth seed Chen Long 9-21, 21-17, 21-11 over 78 minutes.

    SINGAPORE OPEN
    With the victory, world No. 16 Lin Dan has put himself among the title favourites for this week's Singapore Badminton Open, where he has been drawn to meet world No. 4 Viktor Axelsen in the first round at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Wednesday.

    Lin Dan admitted that he has suffered from self-doubts following his drop in form last year, reported the Badminton World Federation website.

    "My performance last year was not ideal. As a result, I was under a lot of pressure and I had doubts about myself," he said.

    "I feel that I played well in this Malaysia Open because I was very determined, in good form and hungry for victory.

    "I didn't play at an exceptionally high level in this tournament, all I did was stick to my strategy and play to my strengths."

    There was a surprise waiting for him at the coronation ceremony, where his arch-rival and long-time friend, Malaysia badminton legend Lee Chong Wei presented the prize cheques to him and Chen Long.

    Lee, whose comeback has been put on hold after treatment for early-stage nose cancer, expressed well wishes for Lin Dan on his Facebook page.

    "Congrats to Lin Dan my greatest arch rival. This is the first time we stand on podium not as each other's opponent," the 36-year-old posted, along with a photo of him on the podium with the two Chinese shuttlers.
    Lin said he hoped to meet Lee on court again, as they prepare for next year's Tokyo Olympics.

    In the women's singles final, world No. 1 Tai Tzu-ying of Taiwan beat Japanese fourth seed Akane Yamaguchi 21-16, 21-19 in 40 minutes.

    China dominated all the other events, winning the mixed doubles, women's doubles and the men's doubles.
    Chinese duo Li Junhui and Liu Yuchen beat Japanese pair Takeshi Kamura and Keigo Sonoda 21-12, 21-17 to win the men's doubles.

    The pairings of Zheng Siwei and Huang Yaqiong, and Chen Qingchen and Jia Yifan also clinched the mixed doubles and women's doubles respectively.

    MEET THE STARS
    Catch the likes of Kento Momota, Jonatan Christie, Tzu-ying and Yeo Jia Min at 11.30am tomorrow at Wisma Atria, where a public press conference for the Singapore Open will be held.

    Fans could get a chance to play games with the stars and and win goodie bags.
    Tickets for the Open are available via www.sportshub.com.sg
