Japanese treble at the French Badminton Open

by archysport

Japan was at the party at the Pierre-de-Coubertin stadium, this Sunday in Paris, for the finals of the French Open badminton (IFB). Three out of five titles came to him, a spectacular harvest that started with men’s singles.

Opposed to Chou Tien Chen, winner of the tournament in 2014, Kanta Tsuneyama won after a very long match (1h13), where he demonstrated his physical resistance. The world number 13 won in three sets (15-21, 21-8, 21-17) for the first Japanese to win singles in Paris.

The simple ladies would certainly fall into the Japanese purse since it opposed Akane Yamaguchi to Sayaka Takahashi. The first (world No. 5) dominated the meeting in two sets (21-18, 21-12). Japan’s third title was the work of mixed doubles Watanabe-Higashino. The Japanese pair defeated without trembling the Danes Christiansen-Boje (21-8, 21-17), the only Europeans to reach the final.

Two doubles were won by South Korean tandems: the women’s doubles by Lee Sohee – Shin Seungchan against Kim Soyeong – Kong Heeyong (21-17, 21-12); and the men’s double by Ko Sung Hyun – Shin Baekcheol against Gideon – Sukamuljo (21-17, 22-20).
