Their recent matchup at the KAPAL API GROUP Indonesia Open 2023 quarterfinals showcased the clash between Marin’s blinding speed and Tzu Ying’s deceptive play. Despite a fierce battle in the opening game, Marin’s speed and consistency ultimately prevailed, leaving no room for a comeback by the defending champion.

What has changed since their last encounter?

According to Tai Tzu Ying, Marin’s attack has become faster and more precise. Tzu Ying admitted that she struggled to keep up with Marin’s tempo, especially in the second game. Tzu Ying felt unsatisfied with her performance and acknowledged making a lot of mistakes. On the other hand, Marin’s coach, Fernando Rivas, was pleased with her ability to demonstrate her defining skills.
