“Thank God he was able to finish the match well and without any injuries. From the beginning of the match to the end, try to take more initiative to attack from there, the pattern of his game couldn’t improve. There were also a few points missed, one off guard, two points but I pushed back again him, maybe the key is there,” said Ginting about the course of the match.

“I don’t think about it (opponents). I focus on thinking about my own performance,” he continued.
“As we know my performances have not been good lately and the more I come here the better, so the focus is just to prepare.”
“After this, I finished my recovery and discussed with the coach the strategy and evaluation of the game. So it’s more about preparing myself as much as possible and hopefully I can play well.”
“If it’s a matter of proof, if you want to win, especially from yourself, you have to be more prepared first,” Ginting finished.
