Nguyen Thuy Linh Faces Defeat in Opening Match of French Open Badminton Tournament

Nguyen Thuy Linh suffered defeat in the opening match of the French Open badminton tournament when he faced tennis player Wen Chi Hsu (Taiwan, China). This is the opponent Thuy Linh defeated in two previous matches. The last time a Vietnamese athlete defeated this opponent was at the end of last year, at the 2023 Denmark Badminton Open.

Nguyen Thuy Linh slowly came into the game in this meeting. Meanwhile, his opponent played with enthusiasm. Wen Chi Hsu continuously pressed the ball high and deep, and at the same time hit the ball accurately across the field. This makes Vietnamese tennis players encounter many difficulties.

Thuy Linh made great efforts to fulfill Wen Chi Hsu’s request. In the first set, the 2024 German Open runner-up lost 16-21. In the second set, the Taiwanese player seemed to dominate physically. This is Linh’s weakness because he just finished competing in the German Open 2 days ago.

Thuy Linh was soon eliminated from the 2024 French Open badminton tournament.

Wen Chi Hsu stood out breaking the shuttlecock and handled Thuy Linh’s shots very well. She had some difficulties early in the set before winning 21-12. The 27th-ranked player in the world won the final 2-0, ousting Thuy Linh from the tournament.

This is an unfortunate failure for Nguyen Thuy Linh as he received a lot of expectations from his home fans. However, the break was too short and affected Linh’s physical strength.

Previously, Thuy Linh showed an impressive performance at the German Open even without a coach. She beat two strong opponents, Ratchanok Intanon (3rd seed) in the quarterfinals and Kim Ga-eun (2nd seed) in the semifinals. In the final, Vietnam’s number one tennis player lost to Mia Blichfeldt (Denmark, world number 3). This result helped Thuy Linh rise to No. 2 in the world.

The German Badminton Open belongs to the BWF World Tour Super 300 level. Thuy Linh reaches the final of a tournament at this level for the first time. The French Open belongs to the BWF World Tour Super 750 level.

Thuy Linh’s next tournament is the prestigious English Open Badminton Championships 2024, which will be held from 2024 to March 12.
