Dutch badminton players begin the 2021 Thailand Open in a quarantine bubble

Do you already know BC De Flinters?

On Tuesday 12 January, Beck and Tabling (16th in the world ranking) will cross the badminton rackets with their European teammates Eloy Adam and Margo Lambert from France. This is a significantly younger two badminton duo with a much lower position in the world ranking (No. 86).

This will be their first meeting and in the second round, Chan Bing Sun faces Liu Ying from Malaysia (WR7, 5th seed) will likely await them. Robin and Selena played against the Asian couple in November 2019 and lost 21-18 and 21-13 at that time.

Why don’t you play Sherrill Senen in Bangkok?

Badminton Netherlands answered the question of why Selena Beck’s regular double partner does not travel to Thailand as follows:

This is a choice from the coaching staff because there are no qualification points to be obtained for the Olympic Games.

As for Cheryl and Selena’s Olympic qualification, participation in the tournament in Bangkok is of no added value (rating points are only counted for the BWF World Tour Finals). Therefore, a stay at home is a reasonable and economical choice for your Limburg Professional Puffer.

Top 10 Players for Mark Calgo

Not a initially crunchy cookie for Dutch badminton player Mark Kalgo. He is currently No. 36 in the world and has tied with Ng Ka Long Angus of Hong Kong (WR8, seeded seventh). They had played against each other three times before, and the 1.81 meter tall player from the Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China had always finished the tournament as the winner.

If Calju has to claim victory in the first round, he will meet Frenchman Brice Leverdes (WR37) or 2016 Netherlands Open winner Wang Tzu Wei (WR12, Taiwan).
