Yamazaki expressed the significance of this win, stating, “This is an important victory for us as it paves the way for the upcoming Paralympics.” Satomi acknowledged the team’s strategy, highlighting that their usual rotation style alone wouldn’t have been sufficient against the fast-paced Chinese team. The two players complemented each other’s skills, resulting in a well-deserved triumph.

In the women’s Wheelchair (WH1) singles, Sujirat Pookkham from Thailand emerged as the winner by defeating China’s Yin Menglu with a score of 21-17 21-7. Despite experiencing some discomfort in her injured right arm, Pookkham maintained her composure and played her game. Having previously defeated Yin multiple times, Pookkham attributed her victory to the younger player’s lack of confidence in facing her.

The women’s WH2 singles showcased an all-China affair, with 15-year-old world champion Liu Yutong securing the gold medal with a score of 21-15 21-15 over Xu Tingting.
