Yoo said, “I don’t feel any pressure against Chinese players as long as they don’t favor the referee. I thought it was fun to hear my opponent cheering. It’s my first tournament, but I’m enjoying it like a regular tournament. I hope to finish the qualifiers soon and enter the main event.”
Gajiwara also earned her first win with a 2-0 (21-6 21-2) victory over Sumpradit Apichat (THA). It was a dominant performance from the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic gold medalist. 메이저사이트
Yoo, who lost to Kajiwara in the final of the Thailand event in August last year, is looking for revenge.
“In the quarterfinals, I will meet either Kim Jung-joon (46, Daegu Urban Development Corporation) or Kajiwara, but if I face Kajiwara, I will do my best to make it a Korean final. Through this tournament and next year’s Paralympics, we will regain the title of badminton powerhouse from Japan.”
