Ahn Se-young (22-Samsung Life) has reclaimed her ‘throne’.
She won her first tour title three months after winning gold at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.
World No. 1 Ahn Se-young defeated Chinese Taipei’s No. 4 Tai Tzu-ying 2-1 (10:21/21:10/21:18) in the women’s singles final of the Badminton World Federation (BWF) World Tour Super 1000 Malaysia Open in Kuala Lumpur,
Malaysia on Thursday.
She dropped the first set 10-21, but fought back to win the second and third sets in straight sets.
It was her first final since the Hangzhou Asian Games, and she came out on top with her trademark competitive spirit.
Ahn fought through a knee injury in the final of the Hangzhou Asian Games in October last year and took five weeks to rest and rehabilitate after returning home. 카지노사이트777
She competed in three tournaments after her recovery, but the results were not very good.
Her fitness and game feel were off.
At the China Masters, she was eliminated in the round of 16, and at the Japan Masters and BWF World Tour Finals, she fell in the fourth round.
At the World Tour Finals, it was Tai Zhiying who suffered the final disappointment.
However, she bounced back in her final match of the tournament and maintained her 11-3 head-to-head advantage over her opponent.
Meanwhile, in the mixed doubles final, the world No. 7 pair of KIM Won-ho (Samsung Life) and CHUNG Na-eun (Hwasun County Government) lost 0-2 (18:21/15:21)
to the world No. 2 pair of WATANABE Yuta and HIGASHINO Arisa (Japan).
