A boost was earned at the correct time for Ng Tze Yong so that he could bid for a finish to get to the podium in the boy’s singles event at the World Junior Championships. It will get under the way at Markham in Canada. Ng Tze Yong, at 18 years of age, pulled off the upsetting situation in a superb manner for Malaysia when he managed to beat India’s Lakhsya Sen at 3-1. He claimed the fifth spot in the mixed team event which ended shortly.
Ng Tze Yong played the third match after the contest tied with 1-1. He was always in his element to supersede India’s competitor, Lakhsya, who is also known to be the winner of the silver medal at the Buenos Aires Youth Olympic Games. He won the silver medal with scores 21-18 and 21-14. Goh Jin Wei, who is the girls’ singles champion at the Youth Olympic Games, combined with Pearly Tan Koong to snatch the victory for the country at an edge-to-edge game with Tanisha Crasto and Gayathri Gopichand Pullela. The last for the match was 21-11, 21-15.
Though the playoff was not too significant for others, but it was an over-the-top-of-the-world moment for Ng Tze Yong and he secured a win which is enough to boost up his morale over the more illustrious player from India. He is determined to follow the footsteps of Leong Jun Hao who claimed the silver at YOG 2017 and Lee Zii Jia, who the bronze at YOG 2016.
This has been the biggest yet for Ng Tze Yong and he has gained much confidence and energy to fight for the goal that he is currently eyeing at for the individual event which is to enter the semis and also to win a medal.
