The Daddies, as they are commonly called, will compete in fifth place. They will meet Malaysian representatives, Ong Yew Sin / Teo Ee Yi.
According to BWF records, the pair have met three times, all in 2019. Hendra/Ahsan managed to win twice, namely at the Australian Open (June) and the French Open (October). Meanwhile, Ong/Teo won once at the Thailand Open (July).
After not seeing each other for more than two years, Hendra/Ahsan will face Ong/Teo again. Despite winning head-to-head, The Daddies never underestimate their opponents who are considered to have improved rapidly since they last met.
