“Now it’s just a matter of playing on the field. The strategy is much more important. In my opinion, the strategy is much more important in the first and second games. Sometimes the strategy is prepared before the match.”

“World players compete every day, of course, there are changes. For young players, their abilities will definitely increase because they practice continuously. What is much more important is strategy when playing,” said Herry.

“What do we do, what is the strategy. We look at the facts on the ground, sometimes the strategies we make on the field in practice do not meet because the enemy can also change strategy. So, we have to set strategies on the field.”

Reasons behind Hoki/Kobayashi’s rise in world level include:
having won the 2021 World Championships, the 2021 Denmark Open, the 2021 Indonesia Masters, and the 2021 BWF World Tour Finals.
