Today we discuss tennis and badminton, and how SG has made waves in both racquet sports in the last couple of days. First, the mysterious case of Peng Shuai that has captivated global media in the past month sees another major twist; this time, it’s SG’s very own Lianhe Zaobao which publishes the first video interview with the tennis star since her explosive posts alleging sexual assault first surfaced on Chinese social media. Why is everyone watching and dissecting this interview? Second, SG shuttler Loh Kean Yew made sporting history by winning the BWF World Championships 2021. We discuss the significance of his achievement, and whether this is as proud a moment as Joseph Schooling’s Olympic Gold.

BTW, it's our 250th ep coming up so... ASK-ME-ANYTHING #3! It's time for YOUR QUESTIONS so please fire away!
