MALAYSIA’S top women’s doubles pair Chin Eei Hui-Wong Pei Tty ended up as losers for the fourth time to China’s Ma Jin-Wang Xiaoli after losing in the semi-final of the Malaysian Open yesterday.
This time the Malaysians took the Chinese to the distance before bowing out 22-20, 12-21, 17-21 in 62 minutes.
Eei Hui-Pei Tty got the spectators all excited after their fantastic win in the opening game but the stadium fell into silence after a tame 12-21 defeat in the second.
The Chinese took the lead in the decider but the Malaysians did not give up but all their hard work ended in vain as they went down fighting 17-21.
With their defeat, Malaysia’s chase for a women’s doubles title in the home tournament remains elusive after four decades.
There were mixed feelings for Pei Tty yesterday.
