A week ago, in the Malaysian Open final, the first tournament of the season, Ahn Se-young was defeated by Yamaguchi, who had a record of 5 wins and 10 losses, and lost 4 matches in a row.
He desperately tried to take revenge, but Yamaguchi, the world’s No. 1 player, was no different.
At the beginning of the game, he allowed 7 runs in a row and gave up a set without being able to use his strength properly.
However, Ahn Se-young has completely changed from the second set.
After 32 rallies, they induced the opponent to make mistakes with their tenacious defense, and then brought the second set with elaborate diagonal attacks and clever net play to balance the game.
The 20-year-old Ace’s fighting spirit was energized by the local Koreans holding the national flag and calling Ahn Se-young’s name…
“An Se-young! An Se-young!”
Ahn Se-young, who received support from the fans, showed amazing concentration in the third set.
In a situation where they were behind 4-7, they scored 4 points in a row to take the lead, and even in the final match, they harassed the opponent with various attacks, including straight lines, diagonals, and timing-stealing drop shots, and achieved a 2-1 come-from-behind victory. 안전놀이터
