The rubber game battle took place in the semifinals of the Indonesia Masters 2021. At that time, Marcus/Kevin won 18-21, 21-17, and 21-11. Then at the 2018 All England, the two pairs also played rubber games with a score of 21-17, 20-22, and 21-13.
Even though they have a good report card, it doesn’t mean the Minions easily beat Ong/Teo. Don’t let a similar incident at the Indonesia Masters 2021 happen.

At that time, Marcus / Kevin suffered a defeat against Takuro Hoki / Yugo Kobayashi. This defeat is very surprising because The Minions have not been defeated in 10 meetings with him.
Reflecting on that experience, Marcus/Kevin must be vigilant. Because it’s not impossible that Ong/Teo will change his strategy to break the egg against the Minions.
We’ll see who will eventually qualify for the semifinals of the Indonesia Open 2021. Watch and support Marcus/Kevin through MNCTV Live Streaming, Friday (11/26/2021). Listen HERE.
