Two Olympic champions faced defeat in the quarterfinals of the DAIHATSU Indonesia Masters 2022. Wang Yi Lyu/Huang Dong Ping lost to Seo Seung Jae and Chae Yu Jung in an intense match. Similarly, Lee Yang/Wang Chi-Lin fell to Fajar Alfian/Muhammad Rian Ardianto, much to the disappointment of the crowd.

Reflecting on the match, Chae expressed, “We had a plan going in, and although we let the lead slip away in the opening game, we fought back.” Wang/Huang had defeated Seo/Chae in the quarterfinals of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games on their way to securing the gold medal. However, the Korean pair did not let their previous loss affect their performance. Chae explained, “I didn’t dwell on what happened last year or our head-to-head records. I’ve been recovering from an injury, and I feel much better now. Playing alongside Seo made a significant difference in our triumph.”

Their journey to the finals is not without challenges, as they are set to face Olympic silver medalists Zheng Si Wei/Huang Ya Qiong.
