Inthanon Ratchanok from Thailand, who is only half the age of her Danish opponent, Tine Baun, has won the ladies single’s category at Yonex Copenhagen Masters 2011.
The three time youth world champion from Thailand, Inthanok Ratchanok, is the talk of the town in Copenhagen for badminton fans these days. People expect a lot from her, especially now since she has beaten Danish Tine Baun on home ground for the second time in a little more than two months.
- I feel really happy for this match. I think I did well today. It is the second time against Tine I’ve won. Before the match I felt very excited, and thought that I could play very well, says Inthanon Ratchanok after having won the final.
Tine acknowledges her defeat
- I think I started out well, but I didn’t play my best game and didn’t feel so comfortable on court. But she’s a good player. She performed today and played at a higher level, and that’s why she has the title now, explains Tine after her defeat.
Although Tine Baun feels bad for having the final, she knows that Inthanon Ratchanok is a good player and she believes that Ratchanok will become one of the very best in the future.
- I think she is definitely going to be a top player. She has a lot of titles to come. She is a good player, and I think she will do very well, says Tine on Inthanon Ratchanok’s future.
