Indonesia will be facing host country Denmark in the semi-final of the Thomas Cup tomorrow.

Jonatan Christie secured the semi-final berth for Indonesia by defeating Malaysia’s Ng Tze Yong in three hard-fought games today in the quarter-final. (Scoreline: 14-21, 21-19, 21-16)

In the post-match interview, when asked about what he expects in the clash against the host country tomorrow, Jonatan replied with a smile, “I hope Indonesia had met Denmark in the final, but the draw has (destined) Indonesia to play against Denmark in the semi-final.”

“Tomorrow, it will be a tough match. From the first match, maybe (Viktor) Axelsen against Anthony (Ginting), to the second match, until the last match, it’s very tough.

“I hope tomorrow we can show our best, from both Indonesia and Denmark… to show the best matches to the audience,” he added.
