In Table Tennis, Indian pair G. Sathiyan and Anthony Amalraj won the bronze at the World Tour Platinum Australian Open. They defeat Korean pair of Jeoung Youngsik and Lee Sangsu.

  • The duo went down with 12-14, 9-11, 8-11 to top seed Korean pair of Jeoung Youngsik and Lee Sangsu. The Korean pair could not be pinned down despite being extended in 1st game. The Indian duo (G. Sathiyan and Anthony Amalraj) fought really well before bowing out in semifinal.
  • This was India’s first ever medal in Australian Open, which is a Platinum event. This lone bronze medal was only silver lining as other Indians failed to cross preliminary-round hurdles in all events.
  • ITTF World Tour 2019 is 24th edition of International Table Tennis Federation’s professional table tennis world tour. It is scheduled from 17 January 2019 to 15 December 2019.
