Hall and MacPherson go out with a fight

Adam Hall/Julie MacPherson have unfortunately exited the TOTAL BWF World Championships in straight games against Japanese opposition.

The Scottish pair went into this match ranked No.57 in the World Rankings, while Wakana Nagahara/Takuro Hoki, their opponents from Japan were ranked No. 22, in the World.

Despite a challenging first set, with Hall/MacPherson losing to the higher-ranked pair 13-21, they fought back in the second, hopeful of taking the match to a third and final set.  However, despite a brave effort, the Japanese pair took the second 17-21.
