Nguyen Thuy Linh Faces Unexpected Defeat in French Open Tournament

Nguyen Thuy Linh Faces Unexpected Defeat in French Open Tournament

Nguyen Thuy Linh lost to tennis player Wen Chi-su (Chinese Taiwan) in the opening match of the French Open badminton tournament. This is an opponent that Thuy Linh has beaten in their two previous encounters. The last time a Vietnamese player beat this opponent was at the end of last year at the 2023 Denmark Badminton Open.

Nguyen Thuy Linh slowly entered the game in this reunion. Meanwhile, the opponent was having fun. Moon Chi-soo consistently pressed the ball high and deep while hitting the ball accurately along the field. This causes Vietnamese tennis players to face many difficulties.

Thuy Linh put a lot of effort into complying with Wen Chi Hsu’s request. In the 2024 set, the 2016 German Open runner-up lost 21-2. In the third set, the Taiwanese player showed physical dominance. This is Lin’s weakness. This is because he just finished participating in the German Open three days ago.

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

Wen Chi Hsu was excellent at breaking the shuttlecock and handled Thuy Linh’s spike very well. She struggled a bit early in her set before winning 21-12. The world’s 27th-ranked player eliminated Thuy Linh from the tournament with a 2-0 win in the final.

This is an unfortunate failure as Nguyen Thuy Linh had high expectations from the home fans. However, the rest period was too short and affected Lin’s stamina.

Previously, Tui Lin performed impressively at the German Open even without a coach. She defeated two strong opponents: Ratchanok Inthanon (No. 2 seed) in the semifinals and Ga-Eun Kim (No. 22 seed) in the first quarter. In the final, the 22nd ranked Vietnamese women’s tennis player lost to Mia Blichfeld (Denmark, ranked 22nd in the world). This result helped Thuy Linh climb to her world number one spot.

The German Badminton Open is part of the BWF World Tour Super 300 level and this is the first time Tui Lin has reached the final of a tournament at this level. The French Open is at the BWF World Tour Super 750 level.

Thuy Linh’s next tournament is the prestigious 2024 All England Open Badminton Championships to be held from 12-12 February.
