BUKIT JALIL: Danish doubles specialist Kamilla Rytter Juhl believes that China’s women’s doubles players have an ace up their sleeves with the constant changing of partnerships.
At the Maybank Malaysian Open, the versatile Ma Jin has been paired up with youngster Tang Yuanting for the first time in an obvious bid to select the best combinations for the Uber Cup that will be held in New Delhi, India, in May – and also with an eye on the Asian Games.
But while Juhl admits that China are blessed to have an abundance of strong doubles players, she believes that they are not unbeatable.
“China are very lucky because they have at least 10 strong women’s doubles shuttlers who can play with anyone and still win,” said Juhl.
“That makes it very difficult for us and the rest because we have to try to keep up with their different combinations.
