Reports from Guangzhou by Louis Chan and Kenneth Ting
Chinas Presse nahm von Flüchtling Yao Jie keine Notiz
Yao Jie finally lost to China’s Zheng Ning in the finals. Yao seemed to have no clue during the game, losing by 14:21 and 5:21. Zheng had taken the upper hand right from the start and Yao had made a lot of unforced errors which contributed to her loss. Although Yao is one of the finalists in this tournament, Chinese press never seemed to have any interest in interviewing her. Yao does have a bit of bad feeling on this and she hopes that Chinese press can cover more on the foreign players. She feels that it will give people more knowledge on badminton issues around the world.
Lin-Dan-Bezwinger war müde
Bao Chunlai couldn’t maintain his form from the previous game and lost to his teammates Chen Hong in the finals. Chen played quite aggressively from the start and took first set by 21:17. Bao seemed to be quite tired. Chen also took a lead in the second set throughout but Bao at one stage getting very close. That didn’t affect Chen as he kept his head cool and won the set and the game by 21:19. Bao looked a bit upset during the prize presentation ceremony as he lost in the final once again and left the stadium straightaway after that.
Bao Chunlai holte im zweiten Satz 9:17-Rückstand gegen Lin Dan auf
Bao Chun Lai has finally finished his winning drought over Lin Dan. He hasn’t beaten Lin since 2001. Lin Dan took the initiative during the first set, sending out some hardly struck smashes which left Bao with no clue. In the second set, Bao focused more on net play and increased the tempo. His intelligent net play had brought him many easy points. The 23-year-old Bao demonstrated his strong mind when he was one set down and lagged behind 9-17 in the second. Yet, he didn't give up and caught up six points in a row en route to levelling the sets 21-19. He won the second set, eventually the third one and the game as Lin started to lose his focus and made a lot of unnecessary errors.
Bao said he enjoyed the net play today very much in an interview after the game. One of his comments of the rivalry between he and Lin is that both players are of the same level, therefore who plays better on that day will win the game. He also told us he’s enjoying his good form and looking forward to winning this competition.
Yao Jie hat die japanische Hürde genommen, doch jetzt kommt schon wieder eine chinesische
Yao Jie has gone through to the finals after beating the Japanese player and she will be facing China’s Zhang Ning in the finals. It’s very likely to be a difficult game for Yao as she has just come back from injury. All the spectators will be supporting Zheng too and that’s going to give Yao a lot of pressure. Yao is now playing for Netherlands and she has expressed that it’s very tough to play in a tournament in China. She thinks that China has too many players playing in the same competition when comparing to just one or two players from each of the European countries. There are too many hurdles to jump to enter the final stages. There’s only one chance for Netherlands to win the tournament but there may be ten or twenty for China. She is satisfied with her own performance for entering the finals and will try her very best to get the champion trophy.
Überraschungen im Dameneinzel: Yao Jie und Kaori Mori trotz stärkster Konkurrenz im Halbfinale
Louis Chan and Kenneth Ting from Guanzhou
Yao Jie beat Chinese player Lu Lan by 23:21 21:19 in a tight game, playing in a stadium with full of Chinese supporters. There seemed a bit of struggle for both players during the game as the wind changed quite frequently in the whole match. Both players chose to leave shuttlecocks when they shouldn’t do, losing unnecessary points. At one point, Yao made the wrong call three in a row and gave Lu a lead. Yao won the game eventually by experience and all round playing skills. She was exhausted after the game. She claimed that she’s injured after the competition in Madrid and was staying in China for recovery for a long time. That’s why she is not in her top form. She thought entering the semi-finals is better than what she expected. For the coming match, she thinks that she can win as she’s much taller than the opponent and will give her the benefit of a higher hitting point. She said she will give it the best go and looking forward to meeting Wang Chen in finals.
