Indonesian Shuttlers Take Home Danish Gold

Indonesian shuttlers bring home two Denmark Open golds

No one would have predicted Indonesia’s Praveen Jordan and Melati Daeva Oktavianti would pull off this amazing feat; even betting websites could not predict the odds of them winning back-to-back in the European series of the HSBC BWF World Tour.

Especially with the dominance displayed by the PRC pairs – World No. 1 Zheng Si Wei and Huang Ya Qiong, as well as World No. 2 Wang Yi Lyu and Huang Dong Ping.

Yet they have done the seemingly implausible, emerging victorious in a thrilling match at 21-18, 18-21, 21-19.

Praveen and Melati mastered all the necessary techniques to win the match. Praveen’s fast smash and Melati’s abilities to keep up with him earned them the victory. I am happy for them, as they have finally won a Super 750 category tournament” – Yuni Kartika, Sports’ Presenter

Today we kept communicating and supporting each and that is the key for us. If we do that we tend to play really well,” – Melati Daeva Oktavianti

As we always tell players playing casual doubles, no one can win the game alone. Even if your partner is a lot stronger, or weaker than you, it is your partly your responsibility to work together to achieve a win.

An Se Young’s Young Answer! Fearless Win Over Marin.

An Se Young’s time has arrived.

At a just 17, she has become the first Korean player since Sung Ji Hyun in 2015 to win a Superseries or World Tour title at this level. She has also become the youngest women’s singles winner of a Super 500 Tournament or above on the HSBC BWF World Tour.

This has propelled her into Akane Yamaguchi, Ratchanok Intanon, and Tai Tzu Ying status – all of these the only women’s teenage winners of such top class tournaments. They all have also been World No 1 at some point in their careers.

From the way the 17 year old exchanged and dominated Marin today, it would seem that An Se Young’s time is quickly coming.

Winning her fourth title this season, the young girl had this to say,

“I’m extremely happy. I worked really hard for the win. This is a great victory for me. The fact I’m young helps me a lot because I don’t fear anything.”

It would seem like us badminton fans will have more exciting badminton to watch in the future.
