[Asian Games] Women’s Badminton Easily Defeats Maldives and Advances to Semifinals… Not Even One Set
The Korean women’s badminton team got off to a good start by easily winning the first team event at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.
Korea defeated the Maldives 3-0 in the women’s team quarterfinals held at the Binjiang Gymnasium in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China on the 29th.
Korea played a one-sided match, not giving up a single set to the weak Maldives.
All three games ended in two sets, so the total game time was only about 70 minutes,
so saving stamina was a bonus. 먹튀검증
World No. 1 Ahn Se-young (21, Samsung Life Insurance), who was the first runner,
easily defeated world No. 205 Abdul Razak Fatimas Navaha 2-0 (21-1 21-5).
The game was so overwhelming that it ended in 20 minutes.
For Ahn Se-young, who was unable to participate in the team event at the 2018 Jakarta and Palembang Games and was eliminated in the first round of the individual event,
this is her first win at the Asian Games.
Korean players continued to cruise in the second and third singles matches.
Ga-eun Kim (Samsung Life Insurance), ranked 18th in the world,
easily defeated Abdul Razak Aminas Nabiha (ranked 213) 2-0 (21-7 21-4).
Garam Kim (KGC Ginseng Corporation), ranked 126th in the world, also defeated Rashid Aisha Afnan (ranked 688th) 2-0 (21-3 21-1).
Typically, team matches are played in the order of singles – doubles – singles – doubles – singles, but on this day, considering the situation in the Maldives where one player plays both singles and doubles, the three singles matches were placed in the first order.
Korea’s opponent in the semifinals is the winner of the quarterfinals between Thailand and India.
Korean badminton, which suffered the humiliation of receiving no medals at the 2018 Jakarta/Palembang Games, aims to win prizes in all seven specific events, including the men’s and women’s team event, at this competition.
