SEA Games: Singapore sweeps table tennis

Posted by jtsmyth8 on December 10, 2007

Helping Singapore to a place in the record books was turning into a distant dream for Wang Yuegu in Monday’s women’s singles semi-finals. After dropping the first two games of the best-of-seven match to Thailand’s Nanthana Komwong and with the third balanced finely at 8-8, Wang knew it was now or never.

Singapore were chasing a historic clean sweep of all seven South-east Asia Games table tennis titles, and Wang did not want to disappoint.

Clasping her bat with her sweaty right hand, the world No 8 pointed her left index finger skyward, telling herself to take it one point at a time.

After the world-ranked 84 Nanthana served, the Singaporean’s reply was quick and to her opponent’s weaker left side.

The Thai over-hit her return. (story)
