Going down in the first three sets, Feng began a spectacular comeback in the fourth set.

She won the fourth set 11-4, giving her the momentum to finish strongly in the next three sets, allowing her to beat compatriot Zeng 4-3 in the event.

Feng had also won 4-3 in the semifinals against India’s Sreeja Akula.

Speaking to the media after the match, an emotional Feng said,

It hasn’t been easy, but I really wanted to win something for Singapore, and I just gave it my all and never gave up.

This result adds two more medals to Singapore’s tally.

Currently, we have 10 medals at the 2022 Commonwealth Games, which are being held in Birmingham, England.

Feng has clinched two gold medals after leading the women’s team to victory on 1 Aug — the only one to do so at the Games so far.

She has a chance to win a third one with Zeng on Monday (8 Aug) at 5.10pm, Singapore time.

The duo will be playing against Australia’s Jee Minhyung and Lay Jian Fang, who beat Singapore’s Wong Xin Ru and Zhou Jingyi 3-0 in the second semi-final.

Congratulations to Feng Tianwei and Zeng Jian

Both Feng and Zeng have done Singapore proud at the Commonwealth Games.

Special kudos go to Feng for her fightback and never-say-die attitude, which is something that we can all learn from.

We wish them both the best of luck for today’s women’s doubles final.
