A Rare Occurence

I am currently at the Polish Open just outside Lubin in Western Poland. In all my years travelling with badminton I have never seen a 21-0 scoreline.

This happened today in the second round of the women’s singles where Laura Vana of Estonia beat Lithuanian youngster Gabija Narvilaite in two games.

To be fair to Narvilaite she came up against a much more powerful opponent in Laura who looks to be in great shape at the start of the new season. The Lithuanian herself had already won her opening game in two sets so she had a win under her belt in the tournament so by no means was an easy pushover. On this occasion she just did not have the power to trouble Vana and Laura had her mentally beaten after a 21-8 victory in the opening game.

21-0 was certainly a first for me.
