Chen Tang Jie- Peck Yen Wei another mixed doubles stars in the making

Mixed doubles is now the most formidable department in the national badminton set-up.

And it just got even better with the emergence of Chen Tang Jie-Peck Yen Wei.

It took just five tournaments for the newly formed pair to win their first title when Tang Jie-Yen Wei emerged victorious in the Celcom Axiata Malaysian International Challenge yesterday.

They came from behind to beat Indonesia’s Andika Ramadiansyah-Mychelle Crhystine Bandaso 12-21, 23-21, 21-13.

Tang Jie and Yen Wei, paired up in January, also reached the semi-finals of the Thailand Masters.

The 20-year-old Tang Jie insists this victory is just the beginning.

Yen Wei, 22, echoed Tang Jie’s sentiment by saying their combination is still a work in progress.

Tan Jia Wei, Lee Ying Ying and Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik failed to thrill the home crowd any further in the men’s singles, women’s singles and men’s doubles finals respectively.
