Jakarta, CNN Indonesia —
Indonesia will face Malaysia in the quarter-finals Sudirman Cup 2021. Here’s the lineup predictions Indonesia vs Malaysia.
Indonesia, which is the winner of Group C, will meet Malaysia, who ended the group phase as runner-up in Group D. The duel between Indonesia and Malaysia will take place on Friday (1/10) at 20.00 WIB.
Most likely no players from both teams will play in two numbers in the Indonesia vs Malaysia match. Thus, the order of the matches is men’s doubles, women’s singles, men’s singles, women’s doubles, and mixed doubles.
The following is the prediction for the composition of the Indonesia vs Malaysia team:
Men’s doubles: Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo/Marcus Fernaldi Gideon
The Malaysian doubles, Aaron Chia/Soh Wooi Yik are in high confidence condition. Apart from winning the Olympic bronze medal, Aaron/Soh were also able to beat Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo/Marcus Fernaldi Gideon and Mohammad Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan at the Olympics.
Aaron/Soh also have a 3-0 head to head advantage against Fajar Alfian/Muhammad Rian Ardianto. Aaron/Soh’s appearance in the Sudirman Cup is also convincing because they always contribute points in tough duels against Ben Lane/Sean Vendy and Takuro Hoki/Yugo Kobayashi.
Referring to this situation, Indonesia will most likely field Kevin/Marcus again in the quarter-final match. Despite losing in the last meeting, Kevin/Marcus won in 7 of 8 matches against Aaron/Soh.
The defeat of Kevin/Marcus at the Olympics and then could not be separated from the great burden they bear. In this match, Kevin/Marcus had the opportunity to take revenge.
Women’s Singles: Gregoria Mariska
The women’s singles number has an important role in the match against Malaysia. This number has a mandatory win status because the quality of the Malaysian women’s singles is not at the top.
Despite rotating in the group phase, Indonesia may play Gregoria Mariska for the duel against Malaysia’s women’s singles, which is filled by Kisona Selvaduray.
Gregoria has a better rating and has more flight hours than Putri Kusuma Wardani and Ester Nurumi. Gregoria will be trusted to carry the burden of winning points in this number.
