Chinese pairs win two golds at WTT Star Contender Doha

Doha, Jan 13 (Ajit Weekly News) Chinese pairs clinched men’s and women’s doubles titles at the World Table Tennis (WTT) Star Contender Doha 2024, as two singles and mixed doubles events of the tournament will feature all-Chinese finals.

In the women’s doubles final, China’s Qian Tianyi/Chen Xingtong, who edged top seed Wang Manyu/Chen Meng earlier, encountered a bit challenge in the third set in their convincing win over Adina Diaconu/Maria Xiao 11-3, 11-1, 11-9, reports Xinhua.

“We are glad to win our first gold in 2024, but we still must concentrate on the following singles match. We played our style smoothly in the first two sets, but our opponents made some changes during the third set, which did give us some trouble,” said Chen.

“I think the key point for us to win is good teamwork; we have been cooperating for years and understand each other very well. We also fully prepared for any difficulty before this match,” added Qian.

Later on Friday, China’s Liang Jingkun/Yuan Licen secured a 3-1 win over compatriots Wang Chuqin/Ma Long in the men’s doubles final.

“I’m so happy to win the trophy. We fought hard and tried our best,” said Liang.
