China News Service, Beijing, May 15th (Reporter Xing Chong) The 2022 Badminton Tongyou Cup will end on the 15th.

The national badminton women's team unfortunately lost 2:3 in the Uber Cup final, the men's team was out early in the Thomas Cup and missed the semi-finals, and the Chinese badminton team both missed the championship in the Tangyou Cup for the first time in 26 years.

Zhang Jun, chairman of the Chinese Badminton Association, said frankly in an interview with the media, "The overall performance of Guoyu has disappointed everyone."

  As the World Badminton Team Championship, the Tangyou Cup tests the overall strength of the men's and women's teams.

In history, the national feather women's team has won the Uber Cup 15 times, and the men's team has also won the Thomas Cup 10 times, showing a very strong level of competition, but this time the performance is indeed beyond expectations.

  Due to the absence of Chen Long and Shi Yuqi, the Guoyu men's team, which is mainly composed of new generation players, was generally not optimistic before the game, but in the end not only failed to achieve the pre-match semi-final target, but also created a new generation of national feathers since the Thomas Cup. The worst record is really shocking.

  From the last Tang Cup final to the quarter-finals of the current Tang Cup, Guoyu twice faced the Indonesian team and lost twice, especially in the singles: Lu Guangzu and Zhao Junpeng lost to Jin Ting respectively, Li Shifeng played against Qiao twice Nathan both failed.

Another young player Weng Hongyang also suffered a reversal from the Danish veteran Wittinghus in the group stage.

It can be seen that the men's singles has become a serious shortcoming of Guoyu.

  Guoyu's men's singles used to be very competitive. In recent years, with Lin Dan's retirement, Chen Long's retirement, and Shi Yuqi's suspension for a year due to internal reasons, Guoyu has an embarrassing situation where there are no generals available.

From a technical and tactical point of view, the current men's singles are weaker than the sling, and it is difficult to compete with world-class players.

Zhang Jun said frankly that the coaches of Guoyu men's singles need to be adjusted to find more suitable candidates for the men's singles.

  In terms of men's doubles, after the Tokyo Olympics, the national feather men's doubles have undergone a reorganization. New combinations such as Liu Yuchen/Ou Xuanyi, He Jiting/Zhou Haodong have a certain impact, but they still need to continue to run in the competition to further improve their stability.

  Compared with the men's team, the originally promising national feather women's team failed in the Uber Cup final, which was even more surprising to the outside world.

This time, the defending champion of the Chinese team has a luxurious lineup: the women's singles is led by the new Olympic champion Chen Yufei, He Bingjiao and Wang Zhiyi are also the stable main players of the national feather women's singles; women's doubles, the world championship champion combination Chen Qingchen/Jia Yifan are ranked No. 1 in the world, and Huang Dongping, the mixed doubles champion of the Tokyo Olympics, is also a doubles player. The national feather team is aiming to defend the title.

  However, in the final against the South Korean team, the national feather women's doubles lost across the board, and the game was dragged into the fifth life-and-death battle.

Facing the former Korean player Shen Yujing, the new Keya Championship champion Wang Zhiyi was suppressed by the opponent several times. The final game was as many as ten points behind and finally lost the game. The Korean team also won the Uber Cup championship again after a lapse of 12 years. .

  For the women's team, such an unexpected defeat may be more sober to see that although the women's team is strong at present, it does not have absolute control.

In the first singles, both sides sent the strongest women's singles to play. The talented South Korean girl An Seiying took the lead several times and won the match point. At the last moment, Chen Yufei won the victory with her super willpower.

The unexpected defeat of Chen Qingchen/Jia Yifan also shows that the two sides are comparable in strength. If the opponent is more prepared, it will be easy to be contained and eventually encounter Waterloo.

  In this regard, Zhang Jun also admitted that the South Korean team has a balanced strength in women's singles and women's doubles, and the Chinese team still has shortcomings in both singles and doubles.

As for the reason for the failure of this trip, Zhang Jun believes that in the past two years, the young players have had too little experience, and there have been few confrontations with high-level players.

  Looking at today's badminton world, Indonesia, Denmark, South Korea, Japan, etc. are still traditionally strong teams, with world-class players gathered in the squad, but compared with this, the growth of the national feather youth army is not satisfactory, and it needs to be improved through competition. experience.

Further, the women's team needs to make more adjustments in details, while the men's team needs more experience accumulation and technical and tactical improvement.
