Women’s doubles coach Eng Hian said that the move was made as a refresher to find the right partner.
“This is a form of refreshment and we are looking for a partner who can support the women’s doubles above, Apri/Fadia and Ana/Tiwi. One way to do this is to keep the goal of finding a better partner,” said Eng Hian earlier this month.
Eng Hian added that this disassembly must be done immediately to get a new formula, especially with the current condition of women’s doubles. Putri Syaikah and Melani Mamahit, who are still injured, and Febby Valencia Dwijayanti Gani, who have declared their resignation from the PBSI national training.
In addition to the two new pairs, PBSI also fielded one of its flagship women’s doubles, namely Febriana Dwi Puji Kusuma/Amalia Cahaya Pratiwi, who is now ranked 33rd in the BWF world.
Meanwhile in the mixed doubles sector, PBSI fielded Rehan Naufal Kusharjanto/Lisa Ayu Kusumawati and Zachariah Josiahno Sumanti/Hediana Julimarbela.
