In accordance with the habit of participating in overseas tournaments, the players will usually practice the next day in the practice hall. While official practice is approaching the match day on August 20.
Ginting et al will fight back in the tournament which will be held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium, Tokyo, Japan, on August 22-28.
The last time they participated in the tournament was at the Singapore Open, which was held in mid-July. In the event, Indonesia won three titles from the men’s singles (Anthony Sinisuka Ginting), women’s doubles (Apriyani Rahayu/Siti Fadia Silva Ramadhanti), and men’s doubles (Leo Rolly Carnando/Daniel Marthin).
Reflecting on these positive results, PBSI has set a high target for this World Championship. The parent of the national badminton federation is expected to win two titles, namely the men’s singles and men’s doubles sectors.
The men’s doubles sector is still PBSI’s focus in achieving the highest achievement because the four pairs of Marcus Fernaldi Gideon/Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo, Mohammad Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan, Fajar Alfian/Muhammad Rian Ardianto, and Bagas Maulana/Muhammad Shohibul Fikri, are considered the most ready to compete.
“As for the target, I see that four men’s doubles can be mainstays. Marcus / Kevin and Ahsan / Hendra are still in the top 3. Then, Fajar / Rian are also very consistent this year and Bagas / Fikri can win the All England 2022. From preparation very seriously , they look like they want to win the competition. This is a positive so I hope the men’s doubles can win the world title,” said Head of Binpres PP PBSI Rionny Mainaky some time ago.
In addition to the men’s doubles, Rionny also set the men’s singles sector as the foundation for winning the championship title in Indonesia Badminton World Championship 2022. The appearance of the three representatives of Red and White in this sector in the last few tournaments makes Rionny sure that they can contribute to the championship title.
“Apart from the men’s doubles, the men’s singles are in pretty good condition. They already know their respective opponents and have anticipated, especially those considered the strongest, namely Viktor Axelsen from Denmark. I hope they will continue to be fit and all out. Also Anthony Sinisuka Ginting, Jonatan Christie , and Chico Aura Dwi Wardoyo can be a team to achieve the championship title,” he said.
