关于世锦赛的退赛声明

关于世锦赛的退赛声明

世界羽联确认将有大批印尼选手退出将于12月12日在西班牙韦尔瓦举行的2021道达尔能源世锦赛

印尼羽毛球协会(PBSI)周三上午宣布了这一消息,表达了与新冠肺炎疫情相关的担忧。还有一小部分印尼选手仍在签表中。

世界羽联对PBSI的决定感到失望,并对在抽签后退出感到遗憾。

然而,世界羽联和西班牙羽毛球联合会目前正根据地方和国家卫生当局制定的建议和措施,包括针对所有运动员、团队官员和主要利益攸关方的一套全面的安全协议,集中精力举办一场安全、成功的世锦赛。

此外男单卫冕冠军、世界第二桃田贤斗因伤退出比赛,世界羽联也确认了这一不幸消息。桃田贤斗还退出了上周的2021汇丰世界羽联世界巡回赛总决赛,并已返回日本。

混双7号种子陈炳顺吴柳莹在搭档13年后宣布解散,并退出世锦赛。

大多数球员现在已经安全抵达韦尔瓦并进入了“安全泡泡”。第一轮比赛将于当地时间周日上午10点开始。目前没有重新抽签的计划。

老牌男双高成炫/申白喆夺得法国公开赛冠军

老牌男双高成炫/申白喆夺得法国公开赛冠军
Ko Sung Hyun and Shin Baekcheol.

2021尤尼克斯法国公开赛男双决赛中,韩国老将组合高成炫/申白喆击败了世界排名第一吉迪恩/苏卡穆约,自2019年澳大利亚公开赛后再次夺得男双冠军。

Shin Baekcheol.

这是属于两位老将的标志性胜利,他们用韩国的传统打法击败了世界最顶级的男双组合。34岁的高成炫和32岁的申白喆是2016年里约奥运会后退役的几对顶级男双选手之一;他们于2018年复出,但复出之旅磕磕绊绊。与此同时,小黄人组合将自己塑造成里约后男双一代的佼佼者。

但韩国老将今天的表现表明,他们的技术仍旧是最顶级的;不管对手的什么球,他们都用顽强的防守化解;他们调动苏卡穆约让他无法发挥前场的实力,当机会来临时,他们由守转攻一击制胜。

高成炫获得了他的第三个法国公开赛冠军(前两次分别搭档李龙大和金荷娜),申白喆获得了他的第一个法国公开赛冠军。“在来这里之前,我们都不认为我们能赢,”高成炫说。“每次胜利后,我们都感觉更好,今天我们超级开心。几年前我们离开了国家队,在疫情之后,这是我们第一次进入高级别赛事决赛,所以这对我们来说真的很重要。”

“与年轻选手相比,我们体能限制很大,所以很难跟上他们。我们有经验,这对我们今天很有帮助。这取决于具体情况。也许今天我们的处理得比对手好。他们真的是很好的球员。很难把他们和我们同时代的人相比。即使在那时,也有很多人比我们更好。”

申白喆说:“我们没有任何遗憾。但在我们不打球的那段时间里,我们对自己的未来感到不安。现在我们很高兴我们今天做到了。这是我第一次在法国参加决赛,所以意义重大。在这之后,我们将对未来的重大比赛更有信心。”

他们的的同胞李绍熙申昇瓒早些时候以21-17、21-12击败队友金昭映/孔熙容获得了女双冠军,继2019年后再次登上最高领奖台。

2021苏迪曼杯:中国队第12次夺冠

2021苏迪曼杯:中国队第12次夺冠

2021道达尔能源世界羽联苏迪曼杯总决赛决赛中,卫冕冠军中国队以3-1击败日本队,第12次捧起苏迪曼杯。

纵观全场比赛,双方都展现了超强水准,年轻的球员们表现出了与久经沙场的球星们一样的抗压能力。在上一届苏迪曼杯上,日本队以0-3被中国队击败,这次他们试图推翻这一结果,但他们不得不再次区居亚军。

Zhou Hao Dong and He Ji Ting provided the breakthrough for China.

中国队教练张军谈到了对年轻队员的信任,以及他们在这场重大赛事中坚守立场的能力。让一位球员上两个单项的计划被搁置,中国选择了何济霆周昊东参加男双。

结果如愿以偿。保木卓朗/小林优吾在一个多小时的时间里与中国的年轻队员进行了战斗,但日本人错误地过度依赖防守。在比赛的最后阶段,何济霆/周昊东始终保持着进攻的活力,帮助中国队取得了领先。

“我们在四分之一决赛中输给了丹麦,我们吸取了教训——我们试着更有耐心,”周昊东说。

在上届苏迪曼杯决赛中,山口茜输给了陈雨菲。今天山口一心要进攻。日本人不愿意在对抗赛中留下遗憾,她保持着陈雨菲难以跟上的速度。即使当她的对手找到空档时,山口茜也依靠着顽强的跑动进行补救。正是这种更顽强的风格帮助山口茜赢得了比赛,因为陈雨菲在其他方面还是一如既往的精确和稳定。

Akane Yamaguchi kept Japan in the hunt.

“上一届苏迪曼杯我也是同样的情况,但我输了,所以我不想重蹈覆辙。而且,她是奥运会金牌得主,所以我决定挑战她。”山口说。“我只是想打一场稳定的比赛。我知道她打了几场长时间的比赛,一定会累的。我没有打过这么多长时间的比赛,所以我很有活力。”

在一场高质量的开局之后,男单比赛出现了最令人好奇的转折。开局似乎消耗了石宇奇太多精力,因此他放弃了第二局,把所有精力留到第三局上。无论是这一周累积的疲劳,还是仅仅精神上的压力,桃田贤斗又一次输了。世界第一面对石宇奇的不断高强度进攻,并没有什么办法能够应对,最终石宇奇以2-1击败对手,使中国队以2-1领先。

Shi Yu Qi took advantage of an under-par Momota.

桃田否认疲劳是他在第三局比赛中有点无精打采的原因。“我被对手的进攻能力压垮了,所以我输了。我没有那么累,但我找不到赢球的方法。”

石宇奇在庆祝他2019年7月受伤复出后的最佳时刻时,承诺要比受伤前更好。“我放弃了第二局以恢复我的体力。我必须把所有的精力都放在第三局比赛上。我有90%的最佳状态。赢得比赛是一件很棒的事情,但我的目标不是回到以前的水平——我要达到以前水平的120% !”

Chen Qing Chen is mobbed by her teammates after the women’s doubles victory gave the title to China.

日本最后的希望寄托在女双临时组合上,松本麻佑/松友美佐纪给陈清晨/贾一凡造成了不小的麻烦。中国组合一路经受着考验,她们表现出了出色的气质,关键时刻下手更加果断。

随着21-17 21-16的胜利,苏迪曼杯留在了中国。“奥运会之后,这个冠军让我们可以再次激励我们的队员,”张军说,“我们本届苏杯男双阵容上不是最完美的,对泰国和丹麦我们有一些困难,但我们决定让年轻球员上场,我们信任他们的能力,他们今天做的很好。”

2021苏迪曼杯:克服困难,桃田贤斗重新出发

2021苏迪曼杯:克服困难,桃田贤斗重新出发
Kento Momota took time to find his game against Torjussen.

2021道达尔能源世界羽联苏迪曼杯总决赛 第三比赛日中,桃田贤斗率领的日本队5-0击败英格兰队,将与马来西亚队争夺小组头名位置。

在东京奥运会小组赛阶段被淘汰之后,球迷对桃田的状态充满了好奇。今天,在D组日本对阵英格兰的比赛中,渡边勇大/东野有纱帮助日本取得领先后,桃田贤斗在与世界排名第205位的托尔森的比赛中,看上去与巅峰时期的状态还相距甚远。

日本人经常被托尔森的杀直线所击溃,这位22岁的英格兰球员打得非常轻松,然而最后一记发球将优势拱手让给了桃田,他在第一局比赛中获得了信心,并在没有进一步失误的情况下结束了比赛。

“一开始我非常紧张,无法发挥自己的能力。接近第二局的时候,我让自己冷静下来,控制住自己的比赛。”

Johnnie Torjussen.

“我希望在专注度方面有所提高。我今天很紧张,不能专注于一件事。不过,好在我能让自己冷静下来。”

托尔森说,他对自己的表现感到惊讶。

“这对我来说绝对是一个惊喜,我不知道他是否感到紧张。很高兴看到我的扣杀能够穿透他的防守。我认为这对我来说绝对是一个巨大的信心助推器,能够在与世界上最好的球员的比赛中取得这样的成绩。我想在未来面对每一个球员时都这样做。”

本·莱恩和文迪不敌古贺辉/斋藤太一,没能阻止日本队。 山口茜以21-16/21-12击败霍尔顿,之后志田千阳/松山奈未在与布里奇/史密斯的比赛中直落两局,帮助日本队5-0完胜英格兰队。

在另一场B组比赛中,马来西亚以5比0击败埃及,而在B组中,中华台北以5比0击败德国,韩国以同样的优势击败了塔希提岛。

Dubai Para: Thailand Set Golden Goal

Dubai Para: Thailand Set Golden Goal
Saeyang (left) and Meechai divide and conquer.

Thailand will be banking on their Short Stature (SH6) mixed pair Natthapong Meechai and Chai Saeyang for the nation’s first Paralympic badminton gold.

“We were nervous and excited but had good coordination and our trick shots confused them,” said Saeyang after their 21-12 18-21 21-15 win over Chun Yim Wong and Lam Ching Yung (Hong Kong China) at the 4th Fazza Dubai Para Badminton International 2022. “Meechai is strong at the back and can smash, I’m good at covering the net.”

Thailand have always been strong contenders in wheelchair events. At the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, Sujirat Pookkham took the WH1 women’s singles silver and then partnered Amnouy Wetwithan to the WH1-WH2 women’s doubles bronze.

“It’s now time to go for gold. They are training full time and our plan is to participate in more tournaments to raise our world ranking against strong competitors such as India and Hong Kong,” said coach Thitipong Lapho.

Wong (left) and Lam took the match to three games.

Wong and Lam also have that golden target in sight.

“This is only the second time I’ve partnered Wong but we’ve improved from before,” said Lam.

“We lost to them in two games in Bahrain so when we saw the draw, the first thing we said was we will stay positive. Then we started planning and applied our strategy in the match. We pushed them in the second game but in the third they just had less mistakes than us,” said Wong.

This is a well-coordinated duo, who plan, train and warm-up together before each match.

“We have to be on the same page and have the same goals or we’ll never reach our target. The Paralympics are only two years away. That’s not much time and there are tough opponents out there. We need to work on our serving and receiving skills, and focus on our opponents’ weaknesses,” added Wong.

Haller has a long road ahead of him.

Elsewhere, it took Tim Haller 40 minutes to overcome Japan’s Kaito Nakamura 21-11 22-24 21-16 in Standing Lower (SL4) men’s singles.

“I just focused on one point at a time. When I’m behind, I don’t think about the points. Just about playing my best shots,” said Haller.

Looking at the opponents he is up against, Haller’s immediate aim is to top his group.

“I trained very hard for Tokyo but didn’t make it. So now I need to play more tournaments, raise my world ranking and get to Paris 2024.”

In SL3 men’s singles, Japan’s Daisuke Fujihara batlled India’s Nehal Gupta for 58 minutes before triumphing 18-21 21-11 21-15.

“I beat him in two games in Bahrain but he’s improved since. He is only 17 but has good fighting skills,” said Fujihara.

Fujihara was on court for almost an hour.

QUOTES OF THE DAY

“In the second game, I had to switch off my hearing aid because he was shouting so much it was getting to me. In the third game, I told my coach ‘I just want to finish this’.” – Haller

 

“I lost because I made mistakes and was in a hurry to get points but I fought until the end. I gave him a lot of drop shots and changed my pattern compared to when in Bahrain. It’s something I have to do as I play more matches and mature as a player.” – Gupta

2022道达尔能源世界羽联汤尤杯总决赛 最难忘的比赛盘点:

陈雨菲 17-21 21-15 22-20 安洗莹

尤伯杯决赛

在尤伯杯决赛前,安洗莹与陈雨菲交手六次未尝一胜。这场比赛安洗莹本有机会拿到胜利,韩国人在第三局比赛中以巧妙、精准的表现几乎扭转了局面。在陈雨菲崴脚请求医疗暂停之后,奥运冠军展现了强大的心理,利用出色的技术调动对手,让对手疲于奔命,出现了抽筋的情况,20岁的安洗莹顽强地坚持着,拿到了三个赛点。然而,陈雨菲依然坚如磐石,逆转了比赛。

阿山/苏卡穆约 22-20 8-21 24-22 保木卓朗/小林优吾

汤姆斯杯半决赛

这是一场高强度、激动人心的比赛,日本队挽救了4个赛点,印尼队拿下了第5个赛点,以2比0领先。

兰基雷迪/谢提 21-18 21-23 22-20 阿斯特鲁普/克里斯蒂安森

汤姆斯杯半决赛

Rankireddy and Shetty against Astrup and Christiansen.

印度需要在第一场双打中获胜才能有机会保持平局,因为第二场双打对丹麦来说几乎是预料之中的结果。在第二局比赛中,印度人获得了两个赛点,一切都朝着他们的方向发展,但阿斯特普和克里斯蒂安森逆转拿下第二局,在决胜局中取得了很大的领先。比赛还有更多的曲折,印度组合在中场休息后加速领先,丹麦人扳平比分。兰基雷迪/谢提在他们的第六个赛点大胆发球,最终拿下了比赛。

沈有振 28-26 18-21 21-8 王祉怡

尤伯杯决赛

Korea’s Sim Yu Jin.

尤伯杯决赛,还有比这更不寻常的结局吗?沈有振在一决胜负的第五场比赛中击败新科亚洲冠军王祉怡,从默默无闻的世界排名46一跃成为焦点球员。决胜局中沈有振一度以13比1领先,她的两个对角线路一次次得分。一颗新星到来了吗?

拉斯姆森/索佳德 18-21 23-21 21-17 催率圭/金元昊

汤姆斯杯四分之一决赛

Rasmussen and Sogaard kept Danish hopes alive in the fourth match.

丹麦男队险些在四分之一决赛中出局。韩国队以2比1领先,催率圭/金元昊在第二局拿到了两个赛点,看起来丹麦的一切都结束了。但幸运之神眷顾了他们——催率圭回球下网——在顽强的抵抗之后,丹麦人完成了令人难忘的逆转,为格姆克的胜利奠定了基础。

陆光祖 25-23 24-26 21-15 小波波夫

汤姆斯杯小组赛B组

Chriisto Popov is on his knees after cramping against Lu Guang Zu.

中国队在小组赛中遭遇顽强的抵抗,小波波夫输掉了一场势均力敌的比赛,但他没有表现出任何沮丧的迹象。决胜局14-9时,看起来他已经快要赢了,但是由于抽筋,小波波夫几乎不能移动,陆光祖连得10分,赢得了比赛。1小时58分钟,它将被铭记为耗时最久的男子单打比赛之一。

劳伦·林 23-25 21-14 22-20 李文珊

尤伯杯小组赛D组

Lauren Lam after her close win over Michelle Li.

世界排名比李文珊低50位,劳伦·林上演了精彩的以小博大。这名左手球员虽然输掉了第一局比赛,但仍然镇定自若;比赛的最后阶段是戏剧性的,李文珊挽救了6个赛点,但劳伦·林在第七个赛点中抓住机会拿下比赛。

谢定峰/张御宇  22-20 21-17 古贺辉/渡边勇大

Dubai Para: Debutants Relish Positive Vibe

Dubai Para: Debutants Relish Positive Vibe
Bree Mellberg

Day 1 of the 4th Fazza Dubai Para Badminton International 2022 saw new talents make their international debut.

“I lost but I’m here for the first time. I was excited in the first game and then relaxed in the second. I want to watch other players and learn the different playing styles,” said Venla Salo of Finland after her 21-3 21-8 defeat to India’s Jyothi in the Standing Lower (SL4) women’s singles.

Australian Bree Mellberg, Salo’s fellow BWF Female Participation Grant 2022 recipient, had a calmer approach, drawing on her experience as an elite wheelchair basketball athlete to deal with the pressure.

“I enjoyed today and appreciate the experience. It’s allowed me to understand where I am on this stage. It’s such a positive vibe here and I want to keep playing because I love what I do,” said Mellberg, who was defeated by Korea’s Hyun Ah Kwon 21-6 21-6 in her first Wheelchair (WH1) women’s singles group match.

New Zealand’s Wojtek Czyz expressed similar emotions after the Paralympic track and field medallist lost 21-13 21-11 in the SL3 men’s singles to Ukun Rukaendi (Indonesia).

“This is my first competitive international match and he’s very good. I was excited and tried to enjoy my game. This match helped me see where I am and what I need to work on. I lack technique and I knew I wasn’t going to win so there was no tension.”

Czyz explores the beauty of badminton.

Niall Mcveigh (Ireland) may have lost his first Short Stature (SH6) men’s singles match to Korea’s Lee Daesung 11-21 21-17 14-21 but he was in good spirits.

“It was a long match but that’s sport. You don’t always win. It’s just really good to be playing,” said the 31-year-old.

McVeigh in action.

QUOTES OF THE DAY

“Badminton is like chess. You need to read the game and your opponent. It’s not like a 100m race where you just focus on yourself and run. Badminton is a beautiful game where you have time to think, where you play with and against the person in front of you.” – Czyz

 

“When I started (internationally) I was 18 and there were about seven of us in SH6. Now it’s great to see a larger number of SH6 athletes, both men and women. That’s what the Paralympics has done for the sport. I missed Tokyo 2020 by one spot but now that there’s mixed doubles in Paris in 2024, all I need is a partner.” – McVeigh

Sukamuljo and Ahsan celebrate their win over Hoki and Kobayashi.

The TotalEnergies BWF Thomas and Uber Cup Finals 2022 had everything a fan could ask for — great action, come-from-behind wins, unexpected results. Here’s our shortlist of the most memorable matches:

Chen Yu Fei bt An Se Young 17-21 21-15 22-20

Uber Cup Final

An Se Young had a 0-6 record against Chen Yu Fei going into the Uber Cup final in which Korea were rank underdogs against China. The Korean nearly turned the tables on Chen with a crafty, precise display, gaining a hefty lead in the third game before she started cramping. Falling to the floor in between points and barely able to move, the 20-year-old soldiered on and had three match points. The Olympic champion however stayed rock solid and took the match away from her; despite the loss, An’s grit inspired the rest of the Korean team to a famous victory.

Ahsan/Sukamuljo bt Hoki/Kobayashi 22-20 8-21 24-22

Thomas Cup Semifinals

A high-intensity, thrilling contest that saw the Japanese save four match points before the Indonesian scratch pair convert their fifth and go 2-0 up in the semifinals.

Rankireddy/Shetty bt Astrup/Christiansen 21-18 21-23 22-20

Thomas Cup Semifinals

Rankireddy and Shetty against Astrup and Christiansen.

India needed a win in the first doubles to have a chance of staying in the tie, for the second doubles was nearly a foregone conclusion in Denmark’s favour. Everything was going the Indians’ way with two match points in the second game, but Astrup and Christiansen nicked the game and earned a big lead in the decider. The match had more twists in store, with the Indians speeding ahead after the interval, and the Danes pulling level. The second game nearly replayed in the third when Rankiredy and Shetty lost three match points, but the Indians did dare to flick serve on their sixth match point, and were rewarded with a first-ever place in the Thomas Cup final.

Sim Yu Jin bt Wang Zhi Yi 28-26 18-21 21-8

Uber Cup Final

Korea’s Sim Yu Jin.

Has there been a more extraordinary finish to a Uber Cup tie? Sim Yu Jin turned from barely-known No.46 to worldwide sensation with the manner in which she bamboozled recent Asian champion Wang Zhi Yi in the deciding fifth match. Such was her dominance that she led 13-1 at one point; her deception catching Wang short time and again. Has a new star arrived?

Rasmussen/Sogaard bt Choi/Kim 18-21 23-21 21-17

Thomas Cup Quarterfinals

Rasmussen and Sogaard kept Danish hopes alive in the fourth match.

Denmark were on the brink of crashing out of the quarterfinals. With Korea up 2-1 in the tie and Choi and Kim holding two match points against Rasmussen and Sogaard, it looked like all was over for Denmark. But a slice of luck went their way – Choi smashing a kill into the net – and some stubborn resistance later, the Danes had pulled off the memorable rescue act, setting the stage for Rasmus Gemke to complete the come-from-behind victory.

Lu Guang Zu bt Christo Popov 25-23 24-26 21-15

Thomas Cup Group B

Chriisto Popov is on his knees after cramping against Lu Guang Zu.

China ran into dogged resistance in their group tie, with Christo Popov raising French visions of an upset. The Frenchman, despite losing a close first game after holding three game points, showed no sign of being dispirited. He was to lose four more game points in the second before extending the challenge into a decider. At 14-9 it looked like he was headed for a win, but with cramps setting in, Popov could barely move, and Lu ran up a sequence of 10 straight points for the win. At 1 hour 58 minutes, it will be remembered as one of the longest recorded men’s singles matches.

Lauren Lam bt Michelle Li 23-25 21-14 22-20

Uber Cup Group D

Lauren Lam after her close win over Michelle Li.

Fifty places below Michelle Li in the world rankings, Lauren Lam gave USA a headstart in their tie against Canada. The left-hander was unruffled despite losing a close first game; the late stages of the match was dramatic as Li saved six match points, only for Lam to close it out on her seventh opportunity.

Aaron Chia/Teo Ee Yi bt Akira Koga/Yuta Watanabe 22-20 21-17

Thomas Cup Group D

Aaron Chia and Teo Ee Yi celebrate.

A fast-paced, entertaining battle between two scratch pairs featuring acrobatic retrievals, big hits, and the maverick skills of Watanabe. The Japanese were level until 17 in the second, after which the Malaysians pulled away to win the match and the tie.

 

Dubai Para: Stage to Shine for Newcomers

Dubai Para: Stage to Shine for Newcomers

The 4th Fazza Dubai Para Badminton International 2022 starts today, with athletes from 30 countries taking to the courts at the Shabab Al Ahli Dubai Club.

The venue will be a familiar one for previous winners such as Japan’s Sarina Satomi and Yuma Yamazaki, Switzerland’s Cynthia Mathez and Malaysia’s Noor Azwan Noorlan but many of the 189 athletes are newbies to the international circuit and Dubai itself.

Players from Australia, Cameroon, Maldives and New Zealand will be making an appearance on these courts for the first time, as will the team from Iraq.

Etienne Songa Bidjocka of Cameroon said: “I only started playing badminton two years ago. This is my first time in Dubai and an international tournament. I’m looking forward to learning and getting a feel of this event.”

Bidjocka, also the secretary-general of the National Paralympic Committee of Cameroon, will play in the Standing Lower (SL4) men’s singles.

Other debutants include BWF Female Participation Grant 2022 recipients, Australia’s Bree Mellberg in Wheelchair (WH1) women’s singles and Finland’s Venla Salo in SL4 women’s singles.

While some of the usual headliners are missing, it will not necessarily open up the field; the newcomers can expect to face off against the highly experienced and determined forces from India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea and Thailand.

Indonesia have chosen Dubai as their first tournament this year, having skipped Spain, Brazil and Bahrain. Fielding a team of 14, sans the ever-popular Leani Ratri Oktila and Dheva Anrimusthi, coach Jarot Hernowo said: “We decided to focus on Dubai and then on the Asean Para Games and Para Indonesian Open in August.”

India will field 40 athletes, the largest team here, and are set to dominate the Standing Lower (SL3) and Short Stature (SH6) categories.

Paralympic gold medallist Pramod Bhagat heads the SL3 men’s singles draw with teammates Manasi Girishchandra Joshi, Parul Dalsukhbhai Parmar and Mandeep Kaur leading the way in SL3 women’s singles.

Nagar Krishna seems to have an easy path to victory in SH6 men’s singles, while in SH6 women’s singles, Nithya Sre Sumathy Sivan will be riding high from her win in Bahrain last week.

Other winners from Bahrain include Paralympic champions Cheah Liek Hou (Malaysia) and Daiki Kajiwara (Japan).

As the Standing Upper (SU5) men’s singles top seed, Cheah seems headed for a showdown against Indonesia’s Suryo Nugroho.

Kajiwara will be looking to get third-time lucky against Korean top seed Kim Jungjun in WH2 men’s singles, and may have to contend with Chan Ho Yuen Daniel (Hong Kong China) along the way.

Teams will also be looking to strengthen their SH6 mixed pairs in preparation for the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games.

“Having a large number of new players is always good for the sport. As always, the organisers have gone out of their way to put things together well, and make everyone feel safe and comfortable so that we can have a good event,” said BWF Technical Delegate Herbet Ott.

ORDER OF PLAY

2022汤尤杯回顾

2022汤尤杯回顾

2022年道达尔能源世界羽联汤姆斯杯与尤伯杯总决赛的舞台落下帷幕,以下是八天激烈比赛的一些回顾:

印度跻身羽毛球强国之列

对于一个从 1948-49 年第一届汤姆斯杯就开始参赛的国家来说,印度多年来在团体赛中的战绩并不突出。印度羽毛球以个人成就而闻名,夺得汤姆斯杯创造了历史。 由于该团队的核心球员们仍处于 20 岁出头的年纪,看起来该国确实可以在未来一段时间内保持其在顶级国家中的地位。

团队的实力高于每个个体的总和

Sim Yu Jin pulled off a huge surprise in the Uber Cup final.

团队赛事的动态没有比中韩之间的尤伯杯决赛更好的证明。 在纸面上,中国是压倒性的优势,她们几乎没有短板。 然而,安洗莹在首场单打中的英勇表现似乎激励了她的队友。 两对双打确保团队可以进入决胜局,新晋亚洲冠军王祉怡看起来将在对阵世界排名第46的沈有振的比赛中大放异彩。 然而,随着沈有振打出绝无仅有的出色表现,王祉怡带着中国队卫冕冠军的压力,韩国队的势头稳步上升。 王祉怡爆冷输给沈有振,韩国时隔12年再次加冕。

过往成绩并不能代表什么

Jeon Hyeok Jin scored an upset over Anders Antonsen.

团队赛事经常产生惊喜,这一届的汤尤杯总决赛也有一些例子。 韩国队在汤姆斯杯并没有打出最佳表现,但他们差一点就在四分之一决赛中击败了丹麦队。许侊熙在对阵安赛龙的比赛中快速进攻,最终在第三局以 21-19 的比分失利。 新组合姜敏赫/徐承宰击败了阿斯特鲁普/克里斯蒂安森,随后全奕陈直落两局爆冷击败安东森。 崔率圭/金元昊有 3 次机会将韩国带入半决赛,但索加德/拉斯姆森凭借更好的运气和顽强的拼搏扭转了局面。

吴堇溦归来

Goh Jin Wei showed glimpses of her best.

没有人能确定吴堇溦在尤伯杯上的表现如何。 这位前世界青年冠军在参加了几年的低级别赛事并远离聚光灯后,于 4 月参加韩国公开赛,重返顶级赛事。 然而,仅仅在尤伯杯上获得的两次机会中,吴堇溦就很好地展示了她的能力,在三场比赛中击败了莱恩并挑战了因达农。 她的状态对所有球迷来说应该是个好消息,尤其是对缺少女单领头羊的马来西亚来说。

小波波夫出人意料的勇气

1小时58分钟的男单比赛几乎是闻所未闻的。 与陆光祖的第三局比赛间隔后抽筋,小波波夫几乎无法挺过最后几场比赛——然而,这位年轻的法国人不仅完成了比赛,他还与大波波夫一起完成了第五场,兄弟俩对阵的是休息了一整场比赛的刘雨辰和欧烜屹。 第二天,他又参加了对阵丹麦的单打和双打比赛。

羽毛球轻松时刻

汤尤杯决赛有几场精彩的比赛,但涉及“Ben”南塔卡恩 和“Oat” 查能蓬的两场比赛因为这两位泰国人的杂技能力而成为社交媒体上的热门话题。 Ben 和 Oat 在场上滑步跳跃,使他们成为赛场焦点,Ben 被粉丝授予“Ben Bindai”(泰语中“Ben可以飞”)的称号。

印尼女团的表现

Bilqis Prasista was one of the key finds for Indonesia.

印度尼西亚带着一支几乎不为人知的年轻球员参加了尤伯杯。 他们的前辈在参加东南亚运动会,这些年轻球员接受了她们的第一次重大考验,并超常发挥。 少年科曼阿尤普拉西斯塔表现出色——科曼阿尤击败了齐雪霏和 李怡逢,而 普拉西斯塔则直落两局击败了山口茜。 他们的未来将受到密切关注。

桃田贤斗式微

Consistency has eluded Kento Momota.

不久前,桃田贤斗带领团队达到了前所未有的高度。 在本届汤姆斯杯上,这位日本王牌选手显得很不稳定——轻易地输给了李梓嘉和金庭。 战胜周天成在一定程度上挽救了他的口碑,但球迷们希望桃田贤斗能重拾巅峰时期的信心,当时日本队几乎可以直接确定了第一个单打积分。

Top Takeaways from the TUC

Top Takeaways from the TUC

With curtains drawn on the stage of the TotalEnergies BWF Thomas and Uber Cup Finals 2022, here are the top takeaways from eight days of intense action:

India’s Status as a Badminton Power

For a nation that has participated in numerous Thomas Cup campaigns beginning with the very first edition in 1948-49, India’s record at the team event over the years was modest. Better known for individual accomplishments, Indian badminton had its best ever day with the Thomas Cup victory. With the core of the team still in their early 20s, it does look like the country can hold its place among the top nations for some time to come.

Team More than the Sum of its Parts

Sim Yu Jin pulled off a huge surprise in the Uber Cup final.

The dynamics of team event competition needed no better illustration than the Uber Cup final between China and Korea. On paper China were the overwhelming favourites, without any discernible chinks in their armour. Yet, An Se Young’s heroic display in the opening singles appeared to inspire her teammates. The two doubles pairs ensured that the tie would go to a decider, in which recent Asian champion Wang Zhi Yi was favourite against world No.46 Sim Yu Jin. However, with Sim playing the match of her life, and pressure on Wang to defend China’s title, Korea steadily gained momentum. The upset of the event unfolded and Korea were again crowned champions after 12 years.

Track Record Isn’t Everything

Jeon Hyeok Jin scored an upset over Anders Antonsen.

Team events have often thrown up surprises, and there were a few instances at this edition of the Thomas & Uber Cup Finals too. Korea didn’t have the most inspiring look about its Thomas Cup team, but they nearly took Denmark out in the quarterfinals. Heo Kwang Hee played at a sizzling pace against Viktor Axelsen, only losing 21-19 in the third. New combination Kang Min Hyuk/Seo Seung Jae beat Kim Astrup/Mathias Christiansen before Jeon Hyeok Jin pulled off one of the surprises of the event with a straight games win over Anders Antonsen. Choi Sol Gyu/Kim Won Ho had three opportunities to take Korea into the semifinals, but a combination of luck and tenacity by Frederik Sogaard/Anders Skaarup Rasmussen turned the tie around.

Return of Goh Jin Wei

Goh Jin Wei showed glimpses of her best.

Nobody was quite certain of how Goh Jin Wei would perform at the Uber Cup. The former World Junior champion had returned to top-level competition at the Korea Open in April, after a couple of years of competing at lower-run events and away from the spotlight. Yet, in just the two opportunities she got at the Uber Cup, Goh gave a great account of her abilities, beating Line Christophersen and challenging Ratchanok Intanon in a three-game battle. Her form should be good news for all fans, and particularly for Malaysia, who have missed a women’s singles spearhead.

Christo Popov’s Incredible Grit

Christo Popov.

A 1 hour 58 minute match in men’s singles is nearly unheard of. Suffering cramps after the third game interval against Lu Guang Zu, Christo Popov could barely stand through the last few rallies – yet, the young Frenchman not only completed the match, he returned for the fifth with Toma Junior and the brothers even took a game off Liu Yu Chen and Ou Xuan Yi. The next day he was back for both the singles and doubles against Denmark.

Badminton’s Viral Moments

The Thomas and Uber Cup Finals had several great matches, but the two involving ‘Ben’ Nanthakarn Yordphaisong and ‘Oat’ Chaloempon Charoenkitamorn became social media hits for the sheer acrobatic ability of the two Thais. Ben and Oat’s dives to retrieve from impossible positions turned them into viral stars, with Ben conferred the title ‘Ben Bindai’ – Thai for “Ben Can Fly” – by fans.

Indonesia’s Women Impress

Bilqis Prasista was one of the key finds for Indonesia.

Indonesia arrived at the Uber Cup with a young squad of virtually unknown players. With their seniors on duty at the SEA Games, the young players were given their first big test and punched way above their weight. Teenagers Komang Ayu Cahya Dewi and Bilqis Prasista were the standout performers – Cahya Dewi beat Qi Xuefei and Yvonne Li, while Prasista shocked Akane Yamaguchi in straight games. Their progress will be keenly followed.

Momota’s Search for Form

Consistency has eluded Kento Momota.

Not so long ago, Kento Momota was leading his team to unprecedented heights. At this Thomas Cup the Japanese ace looked unsure and inconsistent – falling tamely to Lee Zii Jia and Anthony Sinisuka Ginting. A win over Chou Tien Chen somewhat salvaged his campaign, but fans will be hoping for Momota to regain the confidence of his prime years, when the first singles point was virtually assured for Japan.

泰国公开赛:郑思维/黄雅琼夺得混双冠军

泰国公开赛:郑思维/黄雅琼夺得混双冠军

走近李梓嘉

继在亚锦赛上夺冠之后,李梓嘉在与李诗沣的激烈角逐后连续第二次获得冠军。

这个从预选赛打到决赛的中国球员几乎要战胜经验更丰富的马来西亚球员,在第三局仍以20-19的比分保持赛点。 李梓嘉在20平之后的比赛中发挥出色,并保持积极主动,在接下来的两分中创造机会,以17-21 21-11 23-21的比分结束比赛。

其他热点

♦ 决赛当天最焦灼的比赛是全日本球员对决的女双决赛——松山奈未/志田千阳和松本麻佑/永原和可那之间的比赛。 第三局比赛特别紧张,15平后双方都没有产生过超过一分的领先优势。 松本麻佑/永原和可那在松山奈未/志田千阳获得自己的第二次机会之前获得了四个赛点:17-21 21-15 26-24。

Thailand Open: Tai Wins Olympic Rematch Over Chen

Thailand Open: Tai Wins Olympic Rematch Over Chen

Tai Tzu Ying emerged triumphant in her first face-off with Chen Yu Fei since their thriller at Tokyo 2020, winning the GR TOYOTA GAZOO RACING Thailand Open 2022 on Sunday.

The world No.2, who had fallen just short in the Olympic final, captured her first title of 2022 with a commanding performance in the deciding game.

Keeping a quick tempo throughout, Tai controlled the shuttle brilliantly in difficult conditions and took the match away from the Olympic champion with some spectacular winners. Although erratic at times, she never eased up the pressure on Chen, capitalising on her openings to take the title, 21-15 17-21 21-12.

Close Call for Lee Zii Jia

Lee Zii Jia with coach Indra Wijaya.

Lee Zii Jia won his second straight title after surviving a close battle against Li Shi Feng, following up on his success at the Badminton Asia Championships.

The Chinese qualifier very nearly got the better of the more experienced Malaysian, holding match point at 20-19 in the third. Lee played a great point to level at 20-all, and stayed proactive to create the opportunities on the next two points to finish on a winning note at 17-21 21-11 23-21.

Highlights

♦ The closest contest on finals day was the all-Japanese women’s doubles between Nami Matsuyama/Chiharu Shida and Mayu Matsumoto/Wakana Nagahara. The third game was particularly tight, with neither pair managing a lead of more than a point after 15-all. Matsumoto/Nagahara had four match points before Matsuyama/Shida converted their own second opportunity: 17-21 21-15 26-24.

♦ Zheng Si Wei/Huang Ya Qiong, who had split up earlier this year before coming together once again, won their first World Tour title since January 2020, outplaying world champions Dechapol Puavaranukroh/Sapsiree Taerattanachai in an exciting final, 21-12 18-21 21-14.

♦ The only final not to go the distance was the men’s doubles. Fajar Alfian/Muhammad Rian Ardianto retired in the first game against world champions Takuro Hoki/Yugo Kobayashi, who claimed their first title of the season.

 

Bahrain Para: Cheah Extends Three-Year Winning Run

Bahrain Para: Cheah Extends Three-Year Winning Run

Malaysia’s Cheah Liek Hou continued his remarkable unbeaten run from 2019 by bagging his ninth straight title at Bahrain Para Badminton International 2022 in Manama yesterday.

In the SU5 men’s singles final, the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic gold medallist swiftly concluded the task in 24 minutes, winning 21-7 21-12 against Poland’s Bartlomiej Mroz.

The 34-year-old later returned to take the men’s doubles crown with new partner Muhammad Fareez Anuar, stunning top seeds Chirag BarethaRaj Kumar of India 14-21 21-19 21-7.

Cheah, who in April was also a titlist at Brazil Para Badminton International, is now unbeaten in 49 men’s singles matches since losing to Indonesian Suryo Nugroho in the 2019 China Para-Badminton International final.

As in Brazil, India were the biggest winners again, taking home seven gold, three silver and 13 bronze for a 27-medal total haul.

Paralympic champion Pramod Bhagat, Tarun Dhillon and Manisha Ramdass contributed two top finishes each, winning both the singles and doubles title matches in their respective categories.

Meanwhile, England’s Rachel Choong, returning to competitive action following a three-year lapse, had a day to remember after pocketing two medals.

Although Choong lost in the SH6 women’s singles final to India’s Nithya Sre Sumathy Sivan 21-15 21-15, the 28-year-old combined with Jack Shephard to beat Hong Kong China’s Man Kai Chu/Choi Wing Kei 21-10 21-6 for the mixed doubles gold.
