Indonesian women’s DOUBLES, Apriyani Rahayu/Siti Fadia Silva Ramadhanti, continue their journey to the quarter-finals of the 2022 Indonesia Open.
They found that certainty after overthrowing All England 2022 runners-up Zhang Shu Xian/Zheng Yu. In a tight battle lasting 1 hour 20 minutes, Apriyani/Fadia were entitled to a place in the quarter-finals by winning the rubber game 21-16, 16-21 and 21-18.
“Thank God with today’s results. We didn’t think too much, just tried to be consistent in every point. Indeed, this Chinese pair has good strength,” explained Apriyani after the match, Thursday (16/6).

From today’s performance, he and Fadia learned to be consistent until the end of the match. Had lost in the second game, but that condition did not dampen the spirit of the new concoction couple.
“In every game there is always a lesson that we can learn. Today what we learn the most is to be consistent on the field,” added Apriyani.
Ensuring themselves in the quarter-finals, Apriyani / Fadia have been waiting for the world number two women’s doubles Lee So Hee / Shin Seung Chan. The South Korean pair secured a place in the quarter-finals after overthrowing the Indonesian women’s doubles, Febriana Dwi Puji Kusuma/Amalia Cahaya Pratiwi.

“For tomorrow, of course, we have to be ready to be tired again. Because the enemy also knows the pattern of the game. So we have to be ready to be tired, stay on the field and always focus,” said Fadia.
The meeting between the two couples will be the second meeting. Last week at the 2022 Indonesia Masters, the two pairs also met in the quarter-finals. At that time, Apriyani/Fadia won 15-21, 21-16 and 21-16. (OL-11)
