Who said what at the TotalEnergies BWF World Championships 2023 on Thursday?

Wang Tzu Wei’s Remarkable Victory

“I’m very happy. I knew his attack is hard so I cannot let him attack. Today I controlled the net and he was uncomfortable. It’s my first time in the World Championships quarterfinals and I want to do well.” – Wang Tzu Wei

Chen Tang Jie and Toh Ee Wei’s Winning Combination

“We are almost similar on court. We have a great hunger for winning and show a lot of expressions on court. I’m calmer than her. In the second game, when the points were close, she said we have to dare to lose, only then can we break through.” – Chen Tang Jie on partner Toh Ee Wei

Beiwen Zhang’s Reflection on a Hard-fought Match

“My speed compared with last year is good, and I’m happy with that. I had hurt my left toe during my match with Kirsty (Gilmour), and that was affecting me. I did find a weakness against An, but I cannot tell what it is! She is very stable, and you cannot be very aggressive because if you hit (into open court) she will dive and retrieve it and put the shuttle beyond your reach.” – Beiwen Zhang

Lakshya Sen Reflecting on a Challenging Match

“There was a lot of pressure on me. I was rushing a lot. It was important to play a patient game but at the same time be clinical. But towards the end I took a lot of risks and they didn’t go my way, and I was shaky.” – Lakshya Sen ponders his loss to Kunlavut Vitidsarn

Kunlavut Vitidsarn’s Determination

“The conditions were difficult. For me, it’s about learning and going step by step. If I do a mistake, just try again. The World Championships have been my dream since I was young, and I hope I can be the champion.” – Vitidsarn

Baek Ha Na’s Disappointment

“We just didn’t find our game, and we couldn’t adjust to their style. It didn’t work out. We had prepared well, we didn’t play in Australia, so we’re not happy to have lost like this. The first half of the year was quite busy, but the second half was similar to everyone else, so I don’t think we were overworked.” – Baek Ha Na, after she and Lee So Hee crashed out

Nozomi Okuhara’s Comeback

“I’m finally here and feeling confident. I’m happy to play old rivals. I will try not to get any injury. I was away from competitions for a while, but the confidence is coming back.” – Nozomi Okuhara, after beating ‘old rival’ Ratchanok Intanon
