Feng Tianwei and Yu Mengyu lose out in women's doubles semi-finals, take bronze

Singapore's Feng Tianwei and Yu Mengyu were defeated by two-time world champions Li Xiaoxia and Guo Yue in the World Individual Table Tennis Championships women's doubles semi-finals early Monday morning.

The Singapore pair could only took two games out of their first-seeded opponents, going down 12-10, 7-11, 7-11, 4-11, 11-9, 8-11.

Still, the duo secured a bronze medal for the Republic as there are no playoffs for third place. This is Singapore's second ever medal at the event. The first was a women's doubles bronze won by Li Jiawei and Wang Yuegu in 2007.

Their loss also ends the national table tennis team's campaign at the world championships, which draws to a close today in Paris.
