Tennis medals keep on rolling in

Taiwan’s final gasp in the bottom of the ninth proved futile as South Korea stood its ground to hand the favorites their second straight defeat.

“I guess I was so much in a hurry to end the game that I lost control of my pitches,” a very disappointed Huang said after the game.

He would take the loss on the day that cost Taiwan the top-seed berth in today’s semi-finals.

TODAY’S GAME

The Islanders are to take on Japan in a semi-final game today at noon, where the winner will advance into tomorrow’s title game against the winner in the other semi-final contest between South Korea and China.

Staff ace Wang Yao-lin will get the call in an effort to carry his team into the title game.
