MADRID, September 15 (.) –
Carolina Marín from Huelva said goodbye this Friday in the quarterfinals of the Hong Kong Open, after falling to Indonesian Gregoria Mariska Tunjung 21-9 and 21-18, always uncomfortable with the flight of the shuttlecock against the one who was already his executioner, also in the quarterfinals, in the Madrid tournament.
The Andalusian had already explained from her first match in this tournament that she did not feel comfortable with the flight of the shuttlecock, something that took its toll on her in this last match. As in the two previous matches, Marín did not enter the duel with a good feeling. This allowed Tunjung to reach the interval with a 6-point lead, in a first set that he ended up winning in 14 minutes by a resounding 21-9.
The Spanish reacted in the second round, which was much more even. The changes on the scoreboard were constant until reaching 17-17, at which point the Indonesian put one more gear to neutralize the character and determination of the Huelva player, sentencing the match with a 21-18.
After this defeat, against which he was his executioner at the Spain Masters in Madrid last April, also in the quarterfinals, Marín finishes this series of matches in Asia and returns to Spain to prepare for the October commitments.
