It was Fajar/Rian who was the only representative who failed in this battle. They stumbled from the pair Peeratchai Sukphun/Pakkapon Teeraratsakul after playing a fierce duel three games 19-21, 21-14, and 11-21.

Looking at the progress of the match from the opening match, Anthony Ginting tried to surprise the Thai men's team. They did not field their champion Kunlavut Vitidsarn, but chose to place Panitchaphon Teeraratsakul as the Red and White men's singles competitor.

Luckily, Ginting was still able to end the match with a win. Even though he initially only planned to prepare himself to face Kunlavut, the badminton player born in 1996 ended up studying the game of other Thai representatives, which led him to successfully contribute the first point with a 21-16, 21-13 lead.

“Indeed, initially I prepared myself to fight Kunlavut (Vitidsarn), but I had the thought not to stick with him, because the Thai team definitely has a strategy,” said Ginting in his statement after the 2024 Thomas Cup match.

“Finally, I also studied other (Thailand men's singles) games. Then when the line-up came out, at least I had an idea of ​​what it would be like on the field,” he added, quoted from PBSI's official X account.

Anthony Sinisuka Ginting opens the 2022 Thomas Cup Semifinal match against Kento Momota. Ginting managed to win 3-2 against Momota, bringing Indonesia to the final.
