After four days of fierce competition, there was still no clear leader who stood head and shoulder above everyone else in the 100PLUS National Junior Ranking Challenge 2020 here at Stadium Juara.
And the competition could not have been keener than it is in Group A of the boys’ singles where both Justin Hoh and Jacky Kok Jing Hong are currently in the lead with 5 points each after six matches played.
Justin continued to maintain his position at the top of Group A after defeating Ong Ken Yon 21-13, 21-19 while Jacky easily won over Anson Cheong 21-14, 21-4 to continue to keep pace of the leader.
On the other hand, in Group B, Eogene Ewe Eon inched closer to guaranteeing his position at the top after winning all 6 matches so far - including this morning’s victory over Jan Jireh Lee in a three-set battle 21-17, 16-21, 21-13.
Muhd Adam Shah and Dylan Ooi Ding Sheng are on second and third respectively with four points each.
But Group C saw fierce competition between two players - Lok Hong Quan and Aaron Tai - who are on the same five points each as Group D saw the continued domination of Teck Joon Kong.
In the girls’ singles, Siti Nurshuhaini Azman is still in Group B with a 100% record with five points from five matches.
And this morning, Nurshuhaini scored a straight set 21-17, 21-14 win over Loh Zhi Wei.
