Soh Wooi Yik: “I really can’t believe we won, especially at the Olympics. We’ve never beaten them. This is the best match of my career. Our on-court communication gave us a lot of confidence. We discussed every point, the mental side of things was very clear to play every shot.”

Aaron Chia: “Nobody expected this but we are quite satisfied with our performance. We will play with the same spirit in the next round.”

Marcus Gideon: “They played with nothing to lose, they played well today. They kept attacking us. We underperformed today. We had a lot of pressure at an event like this, that’s why we just couldn’t play well.”
