Opponents in the group stage have not passed the nucleic acid test, Shi Yuqi only needs to win one game to enter the top 16 of the Olympic GamesFly into the homes of ordinary people

Suriname’s badminton men’s singles player Opiti has recently been diagnosed with a new crown virus infection and had to withdraw from the Tokyo Olympics. He and Chinese player Shi Yuqi and Maltese player Matthew Abella are in the men’s singles group H of the Olympic badminton tournament. This means that Shi Yuqi can enter the top 16 men’s singles in the Tokyo Olympic badminton tournament if he wins a group stage.
Opitiy originally planned to go to the game in the past two days, but unfortunately he tested positive in two nucleic acid tests before departure. He said on his personal social platform, “Today I should have set off to participate in the Tokyo Olympics. Unfortunately, I tested positive for the new crown virus in both nucleic acid reports, so I cannot participate in the Olympics this year.
The Tokyo Olympics badminton event group competition will start on July 24, Shi Yuqi will debut on July 25, against the same group of Maltese player Matthew Abella.
One less group match is not necessarily a good thing for Shi Yuqi. He hadn’t played international games for 16 months. He could have played one more group stage to find the feeling of the game and adjust to the venue and atmosphere of the game. Due to the weak strength of Suriname’s Oupiti, even if he participates in the competition, it will not affect Shi Yuqi’s group qualifying.
Shi Yuqi’s men’s singles top half has two major champions, Kento Momota of Japan and Ansai Long of Denmark. Under normal circumstances, Shi Yuqi will meet the Asian Games champion Jonathan of Indonesia in the quarterfinals, Ansailong in the quarterfinals, and Kento Momota in the finals. Shi Yuqi will be in the upper half. The chance of reaching the men’s singles final is slim. (Xinmin Evening News reporter Wang Zhiling)
