S'pore paddlers thrash Nigeria 3-0

THE Singapore national women's table tennis team are on course to reach the semi-finals after thrashing Nigeria 3-0 in 45 minutes.

The only hiccup came when the Republic were cruising while they were up by 2-0.

Funke Oshonaike and Cecilia Otu Offiong delayed the inevitable by taking the opening game of the doubles 15-13. But Li Jiawei and Wang Yuegu recovered to win the next three games 11-5, 11-5, 11-5.
