Inspired by the success of their experienced senior players, two young Indonesian pairs showcased their talent by defeating top German opponents in the Mixed Doubles category at the Singapore Badminton Open 2018. The matches unfolded in a similar fashion, with the European players initially taking the lead, only to be met with strong comebacks from their Indonesian counterparts. The youthful duo of Rinov Rivaldy and Pitha Haningtyas Mentari secured a spot in the quarter-finals after defeating Mark Lamsfuss and Isabel Herttrich in a thrilling three-game match. Another Indonesian pair, Akbar Bintang Cahyono and Winny Oktavina Kandow, also impressed with their victory over Marvin Emil Seidel and Linda Efler.

Both pairs credited the guidance and advice they received from Olympic and World champions, Tontowi Ahmad and Liliyana Natsir, for their success. The Indonesian players displayed composure and determination beyond their young age, earning praise from their coach Vita Marissa.

Sadly, it was not a good day for England in the Mixed Doubles category, as both Marcus Ellis/Lauren Smith and Chris/Gabby Adcock narrowly lost their matches. Ellis and Smith were defeated by Liao Min Chun/Chen Hsiao Huan, while the Adcocks fell short against Dechapol Puavaranukroh and Sapsiree Taerattanachai of Thailand.

Despite the losses, the tournament continues to be an exciting showcase of skill and determination. The Women’s Doubles quarter-finals will feature top-seeded Thai players, Jongkolphan Kititharakul and Rawinda Prajongjai, while the Men’s Doubles quarter-finals will see two thrilling Indonesia-Thailand clashes.
