Badminton. refreshed Tina is looking forward to the World Tour Finals | Jobi Cool


PETALING JAYA. The short break was renewed by the national women’s doubles shuttler M. Tinaah ahead of the December 7-11 World Tour Finals in Bangkok.

Tinaa, who had to sacrifice Deepavali celebrations with her family to attend the Denmark and French Opens last month, was happy to finally spend some time with her loved ones.

He and partner Pearly Tan both got a well-deserved break to recharge their batteries after their stunning success in Paris.

“I feel really happy and grateful that I was able to spend some quality time with my family. After this short break, I feel refreshed,” Tinaa said.

He and Perley have been given an extra boost after rising to a career-high No. 8 in the latest world rankings.

The pair have made steady progress this year, reaching the semi-finals of the Thailand Open, Indonesia and Malaysia Masters before winning their biggest title yet at the French Open.

Pearly-Tina also won both individual and team gold at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in August.

Tina, however, refused to get carried away after her recent achievements with Pearly and vowed to stay focused on the game.

“I feel really happy for this achievement, but we don’t want to think too much about our ranking at the moment.

“We just want to focus more on ourselves. So far, our preparations for the World Tour Finals are going well,” Tinaa said.

This will be Pearly-Thinaah’s second appearance at the prestigious competition after they also qualified for last year’s competition in Bali, Indonesia.

At the time, they were the only women’s doubles pair from Malaysia to make the cut, but this time independent pair Vivian Hoo-Lim Chiu Hsien will also take on the country’s challenge.

Vivian was happy to qualify two pairs this time as women’s doubles has not always been Malaysia’s forte.

“It’s good for our country that two couples qualified for this year’s World Tour Finals, because the women’s division has always been short. Pearly-Thinaah’s recent achievements have been outstanding and I am really proud of them. Hopefully both pairs can do well in Bangkok,” said Vivian.
