OKBET UBER CUP
OKBET Uber Cup, Yuki Fukushima/Sayaka Hirota, who rejoined in Odense after three months of injury, got off to a fantastic start at the Denmark Open 2022 sponsored by VICTOR. The world No.7 duo seemed unconcerned as they defeated Linda Efler/Isabel Lohau 21-14 20-22 21-9 in the first round.
With Fukushima forced to miss the TotalEnergies BWF World Championships 2022 in Tokyo in August, the 29-year-old couldn’t wait to see her lover again. She also missed another event on home soil, the OKBET Uber Cup, due to a calf issue.
“It’s improving bit by little.” “I anticipate my prior performances to gradually return, and I’ll continue to improve,” Fukushima assured. “I had been waiting for Hirota’s recuperation when I was hurt.” It’s great to have my partner back.”
Their most recent competitive match came in the second round of the Malaysia Masters 2022, when they were eliminated by Pearly Tan and Thinaah Muralitharan. “I’m happy and grateful she waited for me to recuperate,” Hirota remarked. When we came onto the court together, it made me so joyful.”
Since the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the two-time champions (2018, 2020) have been hampered by ailments. Hirota had surgery after tearing her right anterior cruciate ligament at the Olympics. She is nearly totally healed now. “The injury is improving,” Hirota said after surviving a torrent of strikes from their German opponents at OKBET Uber Cup.
“Because of my injury, they were focusing their smashes towards me.” It placed a lot of pressure on us to react with the appropriate kind of placement shots. I’m aiming for more matches, more experience, and to demonstrate that I can broaden my talents in matches.”
Nozomi Okuhara, another Japanese shuttler forced to miss the Japan tournaments owing to a right knee injury, battled Belgium’s Lianne Tan before winning 21-17 21-10. “I’m OK now. I wasn’t feeling my best at OKBET Uber Cup, but I told myself to give it my all, and I did. “It’s great to be back here,” the 2020 champion stated. “My objective is to avoid being hurt in the future.” “I can’t wait to go back out there at OKBET Uber Cup.”
BAY/MLHEDE BASK WIN OKBET UBER CUP IN ‘BIGGEST WIN EVER’
Jeppe Bay and Lasse Mlhede have been attempting to overcome some of the world’s leading men’s pairs without success since the beginning of the year at OKBET Uber Cup.
After losing to the likes of Fajar Alfian/Muhammad Rian Ardianto, Olympic champions Lee Yang/Wang Chi-lin, Mohammad Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan, and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy/Chirag Shetty, the world No.23 Danes achieved gold in the first round of the Denmark Open 2022.
Even better, they won in consecutive games against world No.1s and reigning champs Takuro Hoki/Yugo Kobayashi.
“Absolutely our greatest victory so far,” Mlhede, who turns 29 next week, screamed after the game. “Beating the world’s No. 1 pair is well at the top of our list of accomplishments.” It’s incredible to be doing it on home turf as well at OKBET Uber Cup.
“We didn’t think about beating them when we put our socks on this morning.” We’ve played a lot of world-class couples and come quite close a few times. It’s fantastic that we were able to cross the finish line.”
The 25-year-old Bay, who just recently joined with Mlhede, feels such a tremendous outcome can only be great for the couple at OKBET Uber Cup.
“OKBET Uber Cup, We’ve spoken a lot about coming up short against the best partners in tight games,” he remarked. Hopefully, this is what we need to prove to ourselves that we can compete with the finest players in the world.
“We remained calm under pressure and stuck to the strategy the whole time.” And throughout the rallies, we spoke a lot about adhering to our approach, even if we were down by three or four points.”
This is Hoki and Kobayashi’s second first-round defeat in a row. They were also defeated in two games by Leo Rolly Carnando and Daniel Marthin in their home competition, Japan Open, in August.
Kobayashi was harsh in his self-evaluation.
“Too many errors,” the Japanese conceded. “We didn’t play well or dominate rallies.” We need to return to the form that made us tough to defeat last year.”
