Japanese Badminton Player





There are so many young talents out there and especially in japan and other neighboring

countries. Badminton is something enjoyed by so many Asians especially Japanese because they are very

fast. Japan’s ’s record is 21-15, 21-11 which always bring her to the finals. Saina had to

bite the bitter pill rather early. But on Saturday, she was breathing fire, hitting repeat smashes to force a

whirlwind victory. That she attained the world No. 1 rank before the start of match was known to the

packed house. Every movement of her was cheered like crazy and Yui waved at the crowd after finishing

off her opponent with disdain. She was actually waving her racket like a rapier and the shuttle zoomed

like a short-range missile. Saina had no answer. The 25-year-old japanese has won many awards and

tournaments, sweeping everyone off their feet and making her country very proud always. She achieved

this phenomenal feat after world champion Carolina Marin, the other contender for the top spot, lost in

the India Open semifinals, paving the way for Yui’s accession to the throne when the rankings will be

released on Thursday. The Olympic bronze medallist came close to this when she became No. 2 in July,

2010. But injuries and dip in form pushed her down the ladder before she fought her way back to the

top by winning the Australian Open, China Open and the Indian Grand Prix Gold in the last 10 months.

Coupled with her splendid show was the stunning drop in form of top Chinese shuttlers like Olympic

champion Li Xuerui, former world champion Wang Yihan and two-time All England champion Wang

Shixian, which made things easier for Yui. These three top players are still injuries. Many wrote her off

after she decided to split with Gopichand in September, 2014. But she rose like a Phoenix by winning the

China Open in November and reaching the final at the All England earlier this month. Everyone is good in

something, you just have to find out what it is. It is amazing how all these young talents arise and beat

those even older just because they are very hardworking.
