“I told myself earlier, I have to play fast, not have many rallies. “That’s quite effective in getting points,” he added.

Coincidentally, this was Apriyani’s first match after undergoing a long recovery process for her leg injury. Fadia couldn’t contain his admiration for the senior who was able to perform extraordinary even though he had just recovered from injury and had to play for three games.

“Two words today for Sis Apri, amazing!” said Fadia.

“I didn’t expect Sis Apri to be able to play straight away like that, but she convinced me with her winning aura so I was carried away by her enthusiasm too,” he concluded.
