Singapore veteran Feng Tianwei became the first player to overturn a regulation time deficit into victory in the FAST5. Struggling early with her serve and aggressive and accurate returns from Miu Hirano, Feng went 2-0 down but fought back to edge Game 3 by a single point. That would prove crucial as a becalmed Feng went on to beat Hirano in the FAST5, winning three straight games in the shortened format and ending a streak of four defeats to her Japanese opponent.
I didn’t serve well at the start and made adjustments in Game 3. I think my previous T2 experience gave me the advantage in the FAST5.
I lost control of the match after dropping Game 3. After that I got a bit defensive and that was how I lost the FAST5.
