BIRMINGHAM – Anthony Sinisuka Ginting is keeping his hopes on winning the All England 2023 by qualifying for the quarter-finals. The Indonesian men’s singles said that one of the keys to victory was playing aggressively.
Ginting clashed with the representative from India, Prannoy HS in the round of 16. The match which was held at the Utilita Arena, Birmingham, England, Thursday (16/3/2023) ended 22-20, 15-21, 21-17.
“Give thanks for being able to play well, being able to manage all the obstacles on the field well too and being able to finish the match without injury,” said Ginting, from a PBSI release.
“The match was very tight from start to finish. The key to victory was in the third game when I played more aggressively, increased the tempo of the game. However, I remained patient because it was not easy to get points from Prannoy,” he continued.
The fierce battle between men’s singles numbers 3 and 9 lasted for one hour and eight minutes.
Judging by the statistics, only the second game was not tight because Prannoy was able to steal the game relatively easily.
The first and third games were tight. The two badminton players both don’t want to lose and keep chasing points.
“When I was 17-20 behind in the first game, I tried to be calmer because I haven’t got 21 points yet, which means it’s not over yet,” said Ginting.
“So, we tried another way, what to do again, and thank God we managed to catch up and reverse the situation,” he concluded.
Ginting became the only remaining Indonesian representative in the men’s singles in the quarter-finals. He will later face the Danish champion, Anders Antonsen.
