Williams, Padmore simply smashing


Share post:

TAMISHA WILLIAMS smashed her way to a fifth successive women’s title while the experienced Andre Padmore captured his ninth men’s title overall in the finals of the Senior National Badminton Championships on Monday night at the Barbados Community College.

Williams defeated her doubles partner Monyata Riviera 21-19, 21-19 in a match-up which could have easily gone either way. In fact, after using every trick in the bag, it was simply a case, according to Williams, of “who wanted it more”.

“She played wonderfully. She really came for me, I must say, but I think I wanted it more. Going into the second game, I realised that she was really pushing me. I really had to push past the urge to just give up because I was so tired. I just said, you want it more, you go after it,” said Williams.(RG)
