TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Indonesian Women’s teams will today, May 21 compete against Malaysia in the badminton tournament Group D of 2018 Uber Cup in Bangkok, Thailand, at 14.00 WIB.
Indonesian team manager Susy Susanti predicted that the match will be competitive. “On average, the Malaysian players and Indonesian are at the same level. So we must prepare the right strategy,” said Susy.
