Meanwhile in the Junior Girls’ Team competition at the Australian Junior and Cadet Championships, it was success for the combination of Georgina Newton, Antonia Zhang and Michelle Wu. They secured the title at the final expense of colleagues Holly Nicholas, Matilda Alexandersson and Marsha Guseva.
In Suva, Georgina Newton joins forces with Holly Nicholas, Matilda Alexandersson and Marsha Guseva.
They are seeded ahead of New Zealand’s Jiang Nai Xin, Cheng Zhiying, Sophie Low and Emily Stuart. A challenge from New Zealand but could the greatest challenge emanate from Fiji?
They field sisters Grace Rosi Yee and Sally Yee, both players who last year were very much in the news. Sally Yee competed in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games; Grace Rosi Yee was present in Shanghai for the ITTF World Cadet Challenge. In Wuxi they are joined by Ruta Ioane.
Top seeded spots for Australia in both the Junior Boys’ Team and Junior Girls’ Team events; it is the same in the Cadet Boys’ Team and Cadet Girls’ Team competitions.
Finn Luu and Noah Kim occupy the top spot in the former, in the latter it is Cindy Suy and Oh Sue Bin.
