⁣The Malaysian women’s team has qualified to the Uber Cup finals in Aarhus, Denmark from May 16-24.⁣

And they did it in some style, by beating Chinese Taipei 3-1 in the quarterfinals of the Asia Team Championships.⁣

A determined Soniia Cheah set Malaysia on the road to the finals, with a strong 21-14 17-21 22-20 win against Pai Yu Po.⁣

Chinese Taipei levelled through Hsu Ya Ching-Hu Ling Fang’s 21-14 21-14 result against Chow Mei Kuan-Lee Meng Yean.⁣

Malaysia proved their mettle by scoring two consecutive points through Goh Jin Wei and Pearly Tan-M Thinaah's hard-earned wins over Chian Ying Li (21-23 21-8 21-12) and Cheng Chi Ya-Liu Chiao Yun (18-21 21-17 21-18).⁣

The victory set up a rematch against top seeds, Japan in the semifinals tomorrow.⁣

This is also the first time that the Malaysian women’s team has qualified to the Asia Team Championships semifinals since its inauguration in 2016.
