Ahn Se-young, Baek Ha-na and Lee Yoo-rim reached the finals together at the Badminton Malay Open

 Korean badminton women’s singles ace Ahn Se-yeong (Samsung Life Insurance) is aiming for her first championship this season.

The dark horses of women’s doubles, Baek Ha-na (MG Saemaul Geumgo) and Lee Yu-rim (Samsung Life Insurance), are also challenging to win their first international championship since the formation of the doubles team.

Ahn Se-young defeated China’s strong adversary Chen Youfei 2-1 in the women’s singles semifinals of the ‘2023 Malaysian Open Badminton Championships (Super1000)’ held on the 14th at Axiata Arena, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, as her first international competition of the year, and reached the final.

Chun Yu-Fei (World No. 2) was a tough opponent for Ahn Se-young, who was ranked 4th in the world rankings. Until this day, she had only 1 win (8 losses) with a total turnover. Ahn Se-young met Chen Yu-fei in the final of the Malaysia Masters in July last year and won for the first time after six consecutive losses, and then met again in the third round of the group stage at the World Tour Finals in December 2022, losing 0-2.

This match was held again after 1 month. Ahn Se-young took the lead lightly with the first set 21-12, but unfortunately gave up the second set 19-21. However, in the final three sets, she put up a virtually one-sided performance and took her second head-to-head victory as she easily finished 21-9.

In particular, because the venue for this confrontation was also Malaysia, Ahn Se-young had pleasant memories of Malaysia during the confrontation with Chun Yu-Fei. 카지노사이트

Ahn Se-young challenges her first gold medal of the year against the winner of her 15th Akane Yamaguchi (Japan)-Tai Chu-ying (Taiwan).

In the women’s doubles final that followed, world No. 20 Baek Ha-na and Lee Yu-rim caused a surprise by defeating world No. 4 Jang Shu-xian and Zheng Wei (China) 2-0 (21-17, 23-21).

Baek Ha-na and Lee Yu-rim, who have never won an international championship since the pair formed a new doubles group, aim for the second surprise in the final against the world’s strongest Cheon Qing-cheon-Zai Pan (China).
