Spanish Badminton Star Marin Loses First Match of Year

NEW DELHI – South Korea’s Sung Ji Hyun handed Spain’s Carolina Marin her first loss of the year on Wednesday, defeating the Olympic champion 11-7, 7-11, 14-12 in Indian Premier Badminton League (PBL) action.

The 23-year-old Marin, the world No. 2, went down in the fourth round of play in the PBL.

The South Korean player pressed Marin throughout the match, hitting shots deep into the back of the court.

The Spanish shuttler, who plays for the Hyderabad Hunters in the PBL, rallied in the second set of the match played in the western Indian city of Mumbai.

The 25-year-old Ji Hyun, a member of the Mumbai Rockets, took advantage of several miscues by Marin and squeezed out the win in a tight third set.

“It was a good game but I made a lot of silly mistakes at the end,” Marin said after the match.

Marin beat the South Korean in the quarterfinals of the Rio Olympics.

The PBL uses a different scoring system than other tournaments, with the maximum points possible in a set being 11 rather than 21, and the winning margin required to be a minimum of two points.

The Chennai Smashers are in first place in the PBL, with eight points, followed in the standings by the Mumbai Rockets, with six points; the Awadhe Warriors, with five points; the Hyderabad Hunters, with four points; the Bengaluru Blasters, with four points; and the Delhi Accers, with two points.

The PBL final will be played on Jan. 14 in New Delhi.
