Who said what in and around the badminton world over the past week?
FROM THAILAND MASTERS
“We are driven by our eagerness to chase consistency. We cannot be satisfied with just one title.”
Daniel Marthin after becoming men’s doubles champions in consecutive weeks.
“He is a young player and has brought a lot of motivation and passion I was lacking at that moment.”
Olympic champion Huang Dong Ping paying tribute to 21-year-old partner Feng Yan Zhe.
“Four stops in a row is a challenge for a 28-year-old athlete, and he handled it quite well. It will help him a lot at upcoming events.”
Coach Ng Tat Meng lauding Ng Ka Long Angus’ runner-up finish.
“I haven’t won a Super 300 title for a long time. This is my second and it’s very important for me.”
Lin Chun-yi, whose previous success came in 2019 at the US Open.
“This is our first title in Thailand. This will help us be confident at bigger tournaments.”
Benyapa Aimsaard boosted by glory on home ground.
“I’m satisfied with my performance all week. It feels like a new start for me.”
Zhang Yi Man after picking up her first HSBC BWF World Tour title.
“People don’t give me the chance to attack because I’m tall. They play more downward strokes so I need to be stronger in defence to make sure they cannot get a point off me.”
Pusarla V. Sindhu on the part of her game she is working on.
“There were no off days, only one day we went for AirBadminton on the beach and that was nice. I learned a lot of skills and techniques I hadn’t seen before.”
Women’s singles champion Michaela Ohlson on how AirBadminton helped her at All Africa Junior Individual Championships 2022.
“We are not here to compare the results and achievements of our generation with theirs. Our role is to share our experience and inspire the players. I will go all the way to contribute to the future of badminton in the country.”
Lee Chong Wei after being named to the Academy Badminton Malaysia technical advisory panel.
