Clara Azurmendi and Bea Corrales make the best in the world sweat in Indonesia

The growth of Spanish badminton is increasingly visible on the world scene, as seen again in the round of 16 of the DAIHATSU Indonesia Masters 2021, Super 750 category tournament of the circuit World Tour in which they participate Clara Azurmendi and Bea Corrales. This time no victory could be celebrated, but both players stood out to the point that they made several of the best national rackets sweat.

The first game with a Spanish accent was played Clara Azurmendi, who was left at the gates of giving the bell. He had in front of nothing less than the Olympic runner-up in Rio 2016 and bronze in Tokyo 2020 and world gold in Basel 2019 Pusarla Sindhu, but she came out determined to make things difficult for him and boy did she succeed. In fact, the first set was scored (21-17), which forced India to come back if she wanted to get into the quarterfinals. But Sindhu its alot Sindhu: put the direct in the second game and ended the dream of the Spanish (7-21 and 12-21).

In any case, the Donostiarra has once again demonstrated its great evolution in recent months, in which has come to defeat top level players such as the Danish Mia Blichfeldt.
