Sakai takes control

Japan’s Kazumasa Sakai celebrated a victory over Thailand’s Kantaphon Wangcharoen 19-21 21-15 21-17 🏸 #ABO19

“My opponent defeated Kenta Nishimoto yesterday, and his ability to attack and physical power is very strong. So I had to be patient in my match and I always knew that it was not going to be an easy match, so I did my best.

I played lots of clears and tried to take control of the rallies. I want to do my best here and be on the court as long as I can.”
