BWF News

Marcus Fernaldi Gideon and Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo continue to dominate the badminton world as they clinched their sixth title of the MetLife BWF World Superseries tour today. The Indonesian pair’s incredible feat of winning six Superseries titles this year puts them on par with the 2015 success of Korea’s Lee Yong Dae and Yoo Yeon Seong in the Men’s Doubles category. In their eighth Superseries final out of ten events this year, Gideon and Sukamuljo defeated Mads Conrad-Petersen and Mads Pieler Kolding of Denmark to emerge victorious at the YONEX-SUNRISE Hong Kong Open 2017.

A Display of Speed and Skill

Gideon and Sukamuljo showcased their lightning-fast speed and impressive skills throughout the match. Despite a spirited effort by the Danish duo in the second game, the Indonesian pair proved to be too fast and fiery. With a dazzling repertoire of firepower, they clinched victory in just 37 minutes with a score of 21-12 21-18. As Sukamuljo rose in mid-court to smash the winning point, the crowd erupted in celebration. Indonesian fans have been on this fairytale journey with their star players from Birmingham to New Delhi, Kuching to Tokyo, Fuzhou, and now Hong Kong.

Consistent Success Throughout the Season

Gideon and Sukamuljo’s success this season can be attributed to their consistent performance. They have displayed a remarkable ability to switch on from the very beginning and maintain their momentum throughout the match.

The Danes tried to make a comeback in the second game, but Gideon and Sukamuljo swiftly reeled them in. The top seeds clinched victory, leaving no room for doubt about their exceptional skills and determination.
