He won the first round in Breakant at 2-1 and saving the only Break bullet he had to defend. Then Ivashka woke up in the second and led 3-1, but Duckworth immediately described (3-3), before saving two sets of Set at 5-4, and finally prevail to the Tie-Break (7 -4). In the final, the Australian will be opposed to South Korean Soonwoo Kwon or Kazakh Alexander Bublik.
Muhyiddin Yassin, Malaysia's shortest-serving PM
Low-profile political insider Muhyiddin Yassin had a swift and unexpected rise to Malaysia's premiership -- but his time in power was fraught with instability, and he leaves office as the country's shortest-serving leader. The 74-year-old leaves office after just 17 months -- the shortest-serving prime minister since Malaysian independence in 1957. Bridget Welsh, a Malaysia expert from the University of Nottingham, said his leadership was consumed by simply trying to survive and he botched the handling of the Covid-19 outbreak."His mode throughout was survivalist politics," she told AFP.
