French Badminton Open: Chen Yufei struggles to advance

Xinhua News Agency, Paris, March 6 (Reporter Xiao Yazhuo) Chen Yufei, the “first sister” of the national badminton women’s singles who participated in the 2024 Badminton World Federation French Open as the defending champion, encountered a challenge in the first round. On the 6th, she competed with Thailand’s Ratchanok Intanon. In the match, she lost two games in a row and defeated her opponent 10:21, 21:18, 21:10 with great difficulty, advancing to the second round.

The two have met 20 times before, with Chen Yufei having an absolute advantage with 17 wins and 3 losses. But before coming to France, Chen Yufei had been away from the game for more than a month due to injury and was not in her best condition. After the first game was tied at 1:1, Intanon scored consecutively to widen the gap, leading by as much as 11 points at most, and then took the lead at 21:10.

“When I first came up, the rhythm of the game was not very good. I felt like I couldn’t see the ball clearly on the court. It was always very blurry and I made a lot of mistakes.” Chen Yufei said after the game. “I even thought I might lose.”

In the second game, the score between the two sides rose to 17. This moment also became the turning point of the entire game. Chen Yufei scored 3 points in a row to reach the game point at 20:17, and then regained the game at 21:18.

The decisive game was completely in Chen Yufei’s rhythm, and she scored 4 points in a row. After 15:10, Intanon seemed to have lost his fighting spirit. Chen Yufei hit a 6:0 scoring climax and won the game at 21:10.

“This venue is also the venue for this year’s Olympic Games, but I didn’t think too much about it. The Olympic Games and the Open are completely different, so I don’t know what will happen then. I just need to play the game as well as possible first.” Chen Yufei said.

In contrast, men’s singles No. 2 seed Shi Yuqi’s promotion seemed much easier. He defeated French local player Popov 21:14, 21:15, avenging his loss to his opponent in the China Masters last year.

Among other players from the Chinese team that played that day, He Bingjiao, Zhang Yiman and Han Yue advanced to the second round of women’s singles. Zhang Yiman and Han Yue will meet in the next round; men’s singles Lu Guangzu also successfully advanced.
