Pei Kee hopes to Go forward in new journey with Vanessa


PETALING JAYA: National doubles shuttler Go Pei Kee is set to embark on a new journey in the women’s doubles with Vanessa Ng.

Pei Kee is hoping for a fresh start in her career after failing to take off in her previous partnership with Yap Ling.

The 20-year-old will be making her debut with Vanessa in the Indonesian Masters from Oct 18-23 in Malang.

Pei Kee will be juggling double duty as she will also be playing for the first time with Chong Hon Jian in the mixed doubles.

“For now, we have entered Pei Kee for the Indonesian Masters with Vanessa and Hon Jian.

‘‘We have not yet decided on their tournaments after this. But we will stick to these partnerships moving forward,” said doubles coaching director Rexy Mainaky.

Pei Kee had endured a forgettable year with Yap Ling after they failed to get past the early rounds of the Syed Modi India International in January, Swiss Open and Orleans Masters in April.

The duo, who were ranked 140th in the world, were also floored by Covid-19 before the Hanoi SEA Games in May.

Although they recovered in time to play in the Games, they were still struggling due to the after-effects of the virus and suffered a shock loss to Singapore’s unheralded Insyirah Khan-Bernice Lim in the first round of the individual event.

Now, Pei Kee is looking to come back strongly in the Indonesian Masters where she will open her campaign with Vanessa against home pair Debora Cahyadewi-Metya Cindiani.

In the mixed doubles, Pei Kee and Hon Jian will play their first competitive match together against Taiwan’s Su Li-wei-Li Tzu-pei.

Pei Kee’s partner Yap Ling has been teamed up with Chen Tang Jie. Tang Jie’s partner Peck Yen Wei is currently out injured.
