Bernama – BATC 2024: Malaysian women’s team misses their biggest chance to advance to the semi-finals

SHAH ALAM, February 16 (Bernama) — Akademi Badminton Malaysia (ABM) coaching director Lexi Mainakee lost 3-0 at the 2024 Badminton Asian Team Championships, leading to a maximum of a semi-final berth. I’m disappointed in the women’s team for missing out on this opportunity. Today we will play against Indonesia in the last eight here at the Setia City Convention Center.

This is because Indonesia was missing big names like singles star Gregoria Mariska Tunjun (world No. 7) and 2023 World Championship doubles silver medalist Apriyani Rahayu-Siti Fadia Ramadanti.

“We felt we had a chance (to win), but the players missed the chance to reach the semi-finals,” he told reporters here today.

About the performance of the domestic women’s doubles pair, Pearly Tan-M. Although she lost to world No. 30 Lanie Trey Mayasari-Rivka Sugiarto, Lexi admitted that Tiner has confidence issues on court.

That’s why Lanny-Rybka targeted her en route to a 21-14, 18-21, 21-15 win in a 59-minute match, he said.

“…her (Tina’s) movements weren’t smooth and she was a little too negative. She wanted it to be perfect, but life isn’t like that, because one day it gets better. However, it may not get better on another day, and there is no guarantee that it will.” Overcome that (contradiction) through experience.

“Indonesia seized the opportunity by attacking Tinar,” he said.

Earlier, K. Retzana competed in his first singles match but lost 13-21, 21-18, 13-21 to Putri Kusuma Wardani, while Wong Lin Ching lost to Esther Nurmi Tori – Lost to Waldoyo 21-14, 15-21, 16-21.

Lexi also noted that BAM currently has a full-time psychologist named Frederic Tann, who will begin his duties from February 23rd and will be working with the shuttles of each country, which remains open to qualifying for the 2024 Paris Olympics. He also announced that he plans to support the players.
