Sayaka Takahashi: “Today’s opponent (Tai Tzu Ying), I have never won against her before. The first thing is not to be afraid of the challenge to face the opponent and enjoy the game as much as possible, whether you win or lose has nothing to do with how you enjoy a badminton game.”

Takahashi caused a major upset yesterday by beating Olympic silver medallist Tai Tzu Ying in two straight games. Score : 21-15, 21-18

Tai Tzu Ying: “ I played impatiently today and made more mistakes. Takahashi also played fast, so I played a little harder. I also made many mistakes of my own today, which gave me a lot of pressure.”
