KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 20 – Eoon Qi Xuan kept her unbeaten record to confirm her status as the girls singles champion of the 100PLUS National Junior Ranking Challenge Final Round held at Stadium Juara, Bukit Kiara today.

In the final game of the girls singles, Qi Xuan showed her quality as she fended off a determined fight from K. Lethsaana to win 21-10, 21-18 for the title.

“The most important factor is that I won all the matches this week. I showed that I can control my mental approach, so as not to be too hasty for the points.

“But in terms of my position against the senior players, it is still far off as there are areas which I need to improve especially strengthening my footworks,” said Qi Xuan.

Youngster, Myisha Mohd Khairul finished the week on third in the girls singles after beating Tang Zhing Yi straight set 21-14, 21-10.

In the meantime, Justin Hoh recorded his third victory in the boys singles category after knocking off Ong Ken Yon 22-20, 21-10 to snatch the top spot where he almost assured of taking the title.

Justin is on the same three points with Wyman Goh who overcame Ter Chun Long 21-18, 21-14.

“Of course it feels good to win but I am trying hard not get stressed out on the game tomorrow. Even though I am the youngest player in the boys singles group, I want to prove to the coaches who had given me the confidence to do well,” said Justin.

In the boys doubles, seniors Lwi Sheng Hao-Yap Roy King confirmed their status as champions while another senior pair, Choong Hon Jian-Nur Firdaus Azman finished second.

In the girl doubles, Teoh Mei Xing-Yap Ling made it two wins from two matches to top the standings.

Mei Xing-Yap Ling were forced to work hard before beating Pearly Tan-Toh Ee Wei in three sets, 21-17, 18-21, 21-18.

“We managed to control our emotions well playing against the younger players. We played without any pressure and we were able to stick to the game plan which has been set.

“Our partnership is getting better since the first time we played together in 2018,” said Mei Xing.
