BIRMINGHAM, Aug 4 (Bernama) -- After helping Malaysia win the women’s table tennis team silver on Monday (Aug 1), Ho Ying’s hopes of going further in the singles event were dashed after going down fighting in the round of 32 of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games here today.

Ho Ying put up a gallant fight but it was not enough as she went down 13-11, 7-11, 5-11, 12-10, 4-11, 11-9, 7-11 to Australia’s Liu Yangzi at the National Exhibition Centre here.

However, Ho Ying still has a shot at winning a medal in women’s doubles after she and Karen Lyne downed Ghana’s Millicent Ankudi-Cynthia Kwabi 11-5, 11-5, 11-7  to set up a round-of-32 clash with Australians Jee Minhyung-Lay Jian Fang on Aug 5.

If that’s not enough, Ho Ying is also in the running for a medal in mixed doubles after she combined with Leong Chee Feng to trounce Brian Chan Yook Fo-Oumehani Housenally of Mauritius 11-3, 11-4, 11-1 and set up a clash against India’s Sharath Kamal Achanta-Sreeja Akula next.

It was the end of the road, however, for two Malaysian men’s doubles pairs, with Chee Feng-Lee Yong Yi failing to make the cut for the round of 16 after losing 11-13, 12-10, 3-11, 8-11 to Singapore’s Clarence Chew Zhe Yu -Ethan Poh Shao Feng.

Choong Javen-Wong Qi Shen were then eliminated in the men’s doubles when they lost 9-11, 11-6, 9-11, 11-9, 18-20 to Paul McCreery-Zak Wilson of Northern Ireland in the round of 64.

Javen need not fret, however, as he is still in the medal hunt in mixed doubles when he and Karen Lyne paired up to beat South Africans Nathoo Cheetan Ooka-Patel Danisha 11-4, 11-8, 11-7 and set up a round-of-16 clash against Canada's Eugene Wang-Mo Zhang.

National para table tennis player Chee Chao Ming, however, failed to reach the semi-finals of the men’s singles Class 8-10 category after losing 11-13, 11-8, 10-12, 6-11 to Nigeria’s Tajudeen Agunbiade and end up third in Group 2.
