Marin Leads Spain to Victory in Uber Cup Finals

Three-time world champion Carolina Marin, making her comeback after a year-long injury layoff, showcased her resilience and skill in leading Spain to a 4-1 victory against Australia in the final Uber Cup Group B tie. Despite being at around 50-60% of her usual form following knee surgery, Marin displayed enough firepower to defeat Wendy Chen with a score of 21-12 21-18.

Marin admitted that she still had some jetlag and couldn’t practice in the main hall before the match. However, she approached the game with a strategy of testing the shuttle and controlling the drift. In the faster side of the second game, Marin focused on maintaining shuttle control.

“It feels really good to play international tournaments and meet all my opponents,” Marin expressed her joy for being back on the circuit after a year. She acknowledged that she is not at 100% yet and emphasized the need to train harder and take care of her knee. Her ultimate goal is to reach her peak form by the World Championships in August.

Looking ahead, Marin plans to give her best at the World Championships while utilizing the upcoming Indonesia Opens and Malaysia tournaments to prepare and improve her performance.
