Injections of zeal from Kyung-jin make a mixed doubles Choi Sol-gyu / Chae Yoo-jung who descends on the deciding party playing a fuck. They got up after a poor performance and swallowed a defeat in the semi-final against the Thai pair.
“Their performance in the semifinals was not so good, but in preparation before the final I asked them to forget the outcome in the semifinals, the result was that they could focus and win the game,” Kyung-jin said.
For South Korea, this is their first title in Sudirman Cup after 2003 and fourth in history. According to Kyung-jin, the Sudirman Cup title is very important for South Korea which notes the unpleasant result in 2016.
