“Badminton Empress” Ahn Se-young and Wang Zhi beat Ahn Se-young and Ahn Se-young (Samsung Life Insurance), the world’s No. 1 badminton player at the China Open, which was chosen as a rehearsal stage for the Hangzhou Asian Games.
Ahn Se-young won 2-0 (21-14 22-20) over Wang Zui (11th) of China in the women’s singles round of 16 at the BWF World Tour China Open (Super 1000) held at the Changzhou Olympic Center in China on the 7th.
Ahn Se-young became the first Korean player to win a gold medal at the World Championships last month, after ranking first in the women’s singles world rankings in July. It announced its prospects for gold medals at the Hangzhou Asian Games, which will open at the end of this month, and the Paris Olympics next year.
At the China Open, Ahn Se-young will win her ninth championship this season and four consecutive championships since the Korea Open in July. As it maintains a good performance, it is a goal that can be challenged enough.
China’s Han Yu-e (9th place) will face Ahn Se-young on the way to the semifinals. Although it is one step below in performance, a cautious approach is needed as unilateral support from home spectators is expected. If they reach the semifinals, they are likely to meet either Taiwan’s Taitzying (4th) or Spain’s Karolina Marin (6th).
The mixed doubles group Seo Seung-jae (Samsung Life Insurance) and Chae Yoo-jung (Incheon International Airport) advanced to the quarterfinals with a come-from-behind victory over Japan’s Yamashita Kyohei and Shinoya Narujo (8-21 21-18 21-19). China’s Zheng Zhiwei and Huang Yachongjo (1st place), who faced off in the world 카지노 championship final, will compete for the semifinals, which is expected to be a watershed for winning the tournament.
Meanwhile, Kim Won-ho (Samsung Life Insurance) and Jung Na-eun (Hwasun County Office) failed to advance to the quarterfinals after losing 1-2 (15-21 21-15 18-21) to Malaysia’s Qiantangjie-Toewei group. Women’s doubles Jung Na-eun and Gam Hye-jung were also caught 0-2 (16-21 18-21) by Indonesia’s Afriyani Rahayu-City Padia Silva Ramadanti group in the round of 16. Kim Ga-eun (Samsung Life Insurance) also stopped in the round of 16 after losing 0-2 (20-22 17-22) to Yamaguchi Akane (Japan), the world’s second-ranked player.
