【看英文中國郵報學英文】超級1000系列印尼公開賽,世界第3我國一哥今(21)晚和世界第11的丹麥安童森(Anders Antonsen)爭冠,雙方鏖戰91分鐘,小天再度於第3盤展現較高穩定性,最終以21:18、24:26、21:15勝出,勇奪本季首冠,也是最高等級的第一冠。

During the recent Indonesia Open competition, Taiwanese player Chou Tien-chen won against Anders Antonsen in a men’s singles badminton game, granting him his first title in a Super 1000 level event. Chou defeated Antonsen 21:18, 24:26 and 21:15 in 91 minutes. 

自BWF(世界羽聯)去年啟用新賽制後,年終賽和超級1000系列賽為巡迴賽最高等級賽事。

Since the World Badminton Federation (BWF) launched a new competition system last year, the year-end and Super 1000 series have since been considered the highest levels for which players can qualify. 

小天過去在最高等級賽事只有4強,這次勇闖冠軍戰,不僅是個人首次,也是我國男單第一人。

Previously, Chou Tien-chen used to be fourth in the highest level. Chou has now risen in ranks. 

小天來到印尼賽明顯體力增強不少,也打得更有耐心,連3天都經歷3盤大戰、超過76分鐘,接連力退中國名將「超級丹」林丹、之前對戰僅1勝的印尼「柯震東」,和世界第18泰國旺查倫。

As a competitor in Indonesia, Chou demonstrated impressive physical strength and patience. At Indonesia Open, he played three sets for more than 76 minutes in three days. He successively surpassed retired Chinese player Lin Dan, Indonesian player Jonatan Christie and Thailand player Kantaphon Wangcharoen.

首局,小天攻下一波6:1強勢開局,安童森則是失誤較多,讓小天一度取得9分領先,不過比賽後半段安童森力挽狂瀾,連救了4個局點,好在小天及時回神,精準判斷突然收拍,讓對手回球出界,以21:18拔得頭籌。

In his first game, Chou made a strong start of 6:1. Antonsen made several mistakes, giving Chou a 9 point lead. However, during the second half of the game, Antonsen turned the tide and won four points. However, Chou quickly recovered and won the match at 21:18. 

決勝局已經打超過1小時,雙方仍舊相當拼命,小天沉穩運用戰術和堅強防守,在15:13拉鋸時連拿3分,安童森強力左右殺球緊咬落後,不過最後殺球掛網,小天拿到5個賽末點。

During their deciding game, Chou and Antonsen played for more than an hour. Both sides were desperate to win. Chou calmly used tactics and strong defence, prompting him to score three points. Antonsen, on the other hand, powerfully strikes the ball.

最終對手回球掛網,小天以21:15勝出,兩位選手都倒在地上。小天更激動落淚。

 After numerous point exchanges, Chou won at 21:15. Both players fell to the ground at the end of the match, and Chou cried tears of excitement and joy.
