Loh Kean Yew won the men’s singles, while the pair of Terry Hee and Loh Kean Hean won the men's doubles.
Team Singapore won big at the Yonex Dutch Open 2021 on Sunday (Oct 17) as its shuttlers clinched the men’s singles and doubles title.
Loh Kean Yew, 24, emerged as the Dutch Open singles champion in Almere after defeating India’s top seed Laskhya Sen in two straight sets in 36 minutes. It is Kean Yew’s sixth international title, the first since 2019 when he beat China’s Lin Dan in the Thailand Masters.
Kean Yew’s older brother, Kean Hean, clinched the men’s doubles crown with Terry Hee after the duo bested sixth seeds Tan Kian Meng and Tan Wee Kiong from Malaysia 21-14, 18-21, 22-20.
The trio’s achievements were celebrated by Team Singapore and Minister for Community, Culture and Youth Edwin Tong on social media.
Mr Tong wrote in his post that Kean Yew had dominated in the final, and pointed out that Kean Yew hadn’t lost a single game in the Yonex Dutch Open – a feat he described as “impressive”.
