The journey of the Indonesian Women’s Doubles Greysia Polii / Apriyani Rahayu had to stop in the second round of the 2022 All England badminton tournament, Apriyani’s calf injury in the middle of the match forced the 2020 Tokyo Olympic gold medal winner to withdraw.
Greysia/Apriyani’s decision to withdraw occurred in the middle of the second game when the position was 14-19 behind, in the first game Greysia/Apriyani actually managed to win 21-18.
“Apriyani had a relapse in her right calf. The trigger in the second game was when she wanted to pick up the ball there was an inappropriate movement. After that, her movement became limited,” said PP PBSI women’s doubles coach Eng Hian, in an official statement from PBSI, Friday (18/3).
Eng Hian said that currently further examination was being carried out to see how severe Apriyani’s injury was.
