What an incredible week on court for the Falcons in Chengdu, China at the TotalEnergies BWF Thomas and Uber Cup Finals 2024!
To cap off the week, our Uber Cup Team went up against Malaysia for their last tie of Group Stage (B).

The highlight of the day was Setyana Mapasa/Angela Yu defeating Pei Kee Go/Mei Xing Teoh (21-15, 21-17) to secure their second match victory of the tournament.

Malaysia was too strong in the other matches and took out the tie 4-1 over Australia.

Gronya Somerville/Kaitlyn EA were defeated 12-21, 21-13, 10-21 by Lo Ee Ho/Zhing Yi Tan.

Tiffany Ho was up against Jin Wei Goh but went down fighting 6-21, 12-21.

Junior Falcons Isabella Yan went up against Siti Zuluaikha (10-21,10-21) and Sydney Tjonadi took on Ling Ching Wong (16-21, 3-21).

Hear from National Head Coach Leanne Choo:

“What an incredible tie against Malaysia.

“Setyana and Angela showed great form all tournament and their win today is testament to the strength of their partnership.

“Their win early on in the tie really boosted the team’s confidence for the remaining matches and we then came close to another win from Gronya and Kaitlyn, but unfortunately Malaysia was just too strong.

“Overall, the entire tournament has given me an insight into the events that we need to focus on, and the players have now seen where they need to be to compete against the world’s best.

“It really has been an eye-opening experience in Chengdu and now we all can’t wait to head home to compete at the YONEX Australian National Championships in Bendigo.”
