“If you are asked if you are tired, you must be tired, but just do it because we don’t set any targets. The important thing is that we want to play better at the Indonesia Open,” Kevin said to the media, Monday (22/11/2021).

“I’m tired,” he added with a laugh.

However, Kevin’s physical condition is understandable. The reason is, he and Marcus have previously participated in a series of tournaments on a European tour and only took a short break before competing at the Indonesia Masters 2021.

The other players from Indonesia also felt the same way. However, they don’t want to use fatigue as the main reason when they lose because their opponents also appear on the European tour.

At the Indonesia Open 2021, the Minions will face Keiichiro Matsui/Yoshinori Takeuchi who also represent the State of Sakura. The match is scheduled to be held on Tuesday 23 November 2021.
