Monday, 21 May 2018
VIS’ Jian Fang Lay got the better of teammate Melissa Tapper as they went head-to-head for gold in the 2018 ITTF-Oceania Cup in Vanuatu on Saturday.
Lay got off to a flier, leading the first game 9-0, but once Tapper found her mojo she levelled the scores at two games all.
However, the experienced campaigner Lay, proved too strong for Tapper and ran away with the match 4-2.
This victory makes for Lay’s fourth Oceania Cup title and secures herself a spot at the ITTF World Cup in Chengdu, China later this year.
Lay was very excited with the result.
“I’m very happy to go to Chengdu for the World Cup. I played state team match there once, but it has been more than thirty years since I’ve visited the city!” Lay said.
