A match played at a frenetic pace with Sun Yingsha following up her doubles partner Wang Manyu’s 4-0 win with a similar victory over Chen Szu-Yu. The match featured plenty of high-speed rallies with Chen determined to keep pace with Sun but the Chinese player proved just a fraction quicker and far more accurate. Even when she was 1-3 behind early in the second game, Sun won seven straight points to establish her dominance. Victory was achieved within the 24-minute mark, which is unusual for this format.
I didn’t get into rhythm quickly enough and my opponent was simply too quick.
Having played in T2 before, I really looked forward to coming back as I enjoy this format of competition. I’ve played Szu Yu before and she’s a very strong player so I made full preparation to meet her. This win will help me get into form for the coming matches.
