INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta- Double mix of Tontowi Ahmad / Liliyana Natsir, familiarly called Owi / Butet, was eliminated in the 2017 All England final in Birmingham, England, Friday night local time.

Owi / Butet, as featured on the tournament software website, early Saturday, lost 21-16, 19-21, 12-21 from host Chris Adcock / Gabrielle Adcock in 65 minutes.

After winning the first game, the appearance of the Red and White couple Rio Olympic gold medalist 2016 was actually depressed from the opponent. Although it had a 19-17 lead, Owi / Butet had to give up the second game with 19-21.

"We should play with a long attack, but my game is so smooth that the opponent easily restore the attack," said Owi in the official website of PP Badminton Association All Indonesia (PBSI).

Owi admitted his game with Butet in the deciding game affected four points that followed in the second game of the world's oldest premiere super series level tournament.

"Losing four consecutive points is very influential to us, whereas our game pattern has returned when able to catch up in the second game," said Butet.

Owi / Butet only able to hold the rate of the British couple up to score 4-3. Moreover, the seventh-seeded doubles dominated the third game game to win 21-12.

"We are trying to get up in the third game but our opponents have gotten their game pattern and more confidence, our game just can not get out," Butet said.

The Owi / Butet defeat of the Adcock pair resembles the same defeat in the All England 2016 in the quarter-finals.

"The results of our match today were not affected last year.On our two meetings with them before, we've been able to win.Our mistake is only in the second game so our game is depressed," said Butet
