Thailand’s top women’s singles player Ratchanok Intanon departed from Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok last night with her coach to join the Thailand team and compete at the Uber Cup in Aarhus, Denmark.

Intanon did not participate in the Sudirman Cup as she was in mourning over the sudden death of her mother. She had also planned not to participate in the Uber Cup.

However, with this last-minute change in plan, Thailand now has an extremely strong lineup in the Uber Cup once again.

Incidentally, Thailand was the runner up in the last edition of the Uber Cup which was held in 2018.

Recommendation: Intanon withdraws from Sudirman Cup & Uber Cup

According to Siamsport, Intanon resumed training a couple of weeks back, after completing her mother’s cremation ceremony on September 18.

Intanon said, “My physical condition is not 100% perfect. Now, I am trying to speed up the process of getting my fitness back. But I don’t want to rush myself too much because I do not want to risk getting injured.”

“Regarding my mental state, I admit that I have encountered many disappointments in my life. But I take them to motivate myself more. Because now I have to try and look forward and not get stuck in the past. I want to tell my mom that I’m ready to move on,” she added.
