After dropping the first game by three points, he faced a match point crisis in the second game at 18-20.
In the desperate moment, the ‘shuttlecock genius’ Ahn Se-young (21-Samsung Life) did not give up.
She continued to rally against China’s Chen Yufei (25) with her relaxed play, forcing the tired Chen into errors.
With the score tied at 20-20, Ahn took advantage of the opportunity to attack after the rally and sprinted to the net, sending the shuttle into the opponent’s court with a powerful smash.
After a hard-fought rally, Ahn forced her opponent into an error and eventually won the game 22-20.
However, Ahn came out firing on all cylinders in the third game, falling into a 0-4 hole early on and conceding seven points from 5-8 down to fall behind 3-15 and eventually collapse. 카지노사이트가이드
World No. 1 Ahn Se-young settled for third place after falling 1-2 (18-21, 22-20, 8-21) to No. 3 Chen Yufei in the women’s singles quarterfinals of the 2023 Badminton World Federation (BWF) World Tour Kumamoto Masters Japan (Super 500 Series) in Kumamoto, Japan, on Monday morning.
The fierce rivals met 42 days after the women’s singles final at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on July 7, and it was another close encounter.
Ahn returned to action in Japan for the first time in 39 days after rehabbing a right knee injury that kept her out of competition since the Hangzhou Games, and while she wasn’t perfect, she showed off her form as the world’s strongest player.
However, with her injury still not fully healed, Chen Yufei proved to be a tough opponent.
Ahn is now 7-11 against Chen Yufei (8-11 if you include the women’s team event at the Hangzhou Asian Games).
