Ahn Se-young is out of “Match Point.” Seo Seung-jae, Kang Min-hyuk, Baek Ha-na and Lee So-hee will fill it? The double ‘golden light’ hope

Ahn Se-young (21, Samsung Life Insurance) even won the honor of the Badminton World Federation (BWF) “2023 Women’s Player of the Year” on the 11th.

Seo Seung-jae (26), Kang Min-hyuk (24, Samsung Life Insurance), Lee So-hee (29, Incheon International Airport) and Baek Ha-na (23, MG Saemaul Geumgo) will challenge for the gold medal on the last day, while he failed to reach the final after losing six points in the last three games against Taizying (29, Taiwan).

Seo Seung-jae and Kang Min-hyuk, ranked sixth in the world, will face China’s Liang Wei-kang (23) and Wang Chang (22) in the men’s doubles final of the 2023 BWF World Tour Finals at the Olympic Sports Center in Hangzhou, China, on the 17th.

Seo Seung-jae and Kang Min-hyuk faced Liang Wei-Kang and Wang Chang for the first time in the semifinals of the Indian Open in January, losing 0-2 (18-21, 19-21).

In men’s doubles, Chinese players are ranked first in the world, but the championship is different in each competition due to the current Spring and Autumn Warring States era.

Seo Seung-jae and Kang Min-hyuk, the world champions of Copenhagen in August, confirmed their advance to the finals by defeating China’s Liu Yucheon (28) and Ausu Xuan Yi (29), who were ranked eighth, 2-0 (21-13, 21-12) in the semifinals the previous day. 헤라카지노

As Seo is participating in mixed doubles with Chae Yoo-jeong (28, Incheon International Airport), he is currently exhausted. In the semifinal match of mixed doubles on the previous day, Seo and Chae, ranking third in the world, failed to advance to the final after losing 0-2 (12-21, 5-21) to top-ranked Chinese Zheng Zhiwei (26) and Huang Yachong (29).

Seo Seung-jae, who became the BWF Men’s Player of the Year on the 11th, can make a spectacular grand finale of the season if he gains a gold medal in the men’s doubles.

Earlier, world No. 1 Ahn Se-young suffered a painful upset loss of 1-2 (21-19 15-21, 20-22) against fourth-ranked Tai Tzu Ying in the women’s singles semifinals, leading 19-10 in the third game and even facing a match point situation 20-16, but it collapsed with six consecutive runs, leaving a big regret.

Lee So-hee and Baek Ha-na, ranking second in the world in women’s doubles, will compete with Chen Qingcheng (25) and Ji Aipan (25) of China, ranking first in women’s doubles. Lee and Baek Ha-na are inferior in their opponents with two wins and four losses.

This year, they met four times and Lee So-hee and Baek Ha-na even won the Indonesian Open quarterfinals 2-0 (21-18, 21-12) in June. Most recently, they lost 0-2 (18-21, 17-21) in the final of the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games on October 7.

Attention is focusing on whether the Korean national team, which reached the final in the men’s and women’s doubles among the five events, will end the season with a gold smash on the last day.

The men’s doubles final will be held at 3 p.m. (Korean time) with the first match, followed by the women’s doubles final.
