NUSA DUA – Marcus Fernaldi Gideon / Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo asked BWF to fix the hawk eye problem after an alleged error against Ong Yew Sin / Teo Ee Yi in the semifinals of the Indonesia Masters 2021, Saturday (20/11/2021). As a result, the Indonesian mainstay of men’s doubles was forced to give up the first game.

At 18-20, Marcus / Kevin got the advantage when the service from the Malaysian representative was declared out by the linesman. However, when Ong/Teo asked for a challenge, the hawk eye result stated that the shuttlecock was in (in) and lightly touched the line.

This then led to protests from Marcus/Kevin. They did not accept the hawk eye results, and had time to question the decision to the main referee. However, the decision did not change and the hawk eye result gave a loss because the score was immediately changed to 18-21.

“Yes it is a thousand percent error. It’s very far out but can enter. But the challenge is too long, I don’t understand. There was an error and they seemed to be original. That’s a thousand percent out. They (the Malaysian couple) just admit it,” Kevin told the media crew at the Bali International Convention Center, Saturday (20/11/2021).

Furthermore, Marcus/Kevin felt it was a very costly mistake. Because, thanks to that mistake, they immediately released the first game to give Ong/Teo victory. Even if it goes in (in) they still have a chance to win the first game.
