Tired from previous matches
Going into the day, Hemming described the team as feeling ‘a little tired’ due to previous team matches, however this didn’t stop them showing what they could do.

The team went onto secure a 3-2 victory against Chinese Taipei, a huge victory for England.

Speaking about the day, Hemming said: “We knew that if we brought out the level we had been playing at, we could win the matches today.”

In terms of facing up against Chinese Taipei, he said: “Playing them was a challenge, going into the mixed doubles the score was 2-2 which was huge for us.”

He described themselves as the ‘underdogs’ alongside saying: “I know that if I play well, anything can happen”
