The LI NING BWF World Junior Mixed Team Championships 2018 kicked off on Monday, and the English team was off to the perfect start.

The English team beat Macau China 5-0 in the opening match of group H. 

Harry Huang (men’s singles), Freya Redfearn (women’s singles) William Jones/Ethan van Leeuwen (men’s doubles) and Asmita Chaudhari/Annie Lado (women’s doubles) made the perfect follow up on the opening win delivered by Rory Easton and Hope Warner in the mixed doubes.

- I think we had a really strong performance against Macau. Focus definitely needs to be maintained on Tuesday as we have two matches - one of which is against Indonesia who are the second seeds in the tournament, Hope Warner says. 

Good standard
The defending European U17 Mixed Doubles Champion is also happy about own performance on court.

- I think Rory and I performed to a good standard. We made sure our warm ups were intense, we kept our focus and communicated well as a pair, Warner says.
