【看英文中國郵報學英文】瑞士巴塞爾羽球世錦賽開打,戴資穎昨(21)日在女單賽事對上20歲的印尼女將Fitriani Fitriani,在經過2局的激戰後,最終以21:15、21:14擺平對手,拿下16強的門票。

During her first match at the 2019 BWF World Championships at Basel, Switzerland, Tai Tzu-ying (戴資穎) defeated Indonesian women’s champion, 20-year-old Fitriani Fitriani. It was an intense two-set game, but the Tai came up top with a 21-15, 21-14 victory, and advancing to the round of 16. 

戴資穎此役開打後似乎還沒進入到狀況,一度和Fitriani戰成6:6平手,暫停時小戴也僅領先3分;不過在這之後,她還是慢慢穩定下來,將分數給逐步拉開,以21:15先下一城。

At first, Tai seemed to struggle to get her head in the game, remaining en par with Fitriani at 6-6, then only gaining a small lead of three points. However, after this hurdle, she was able to push her way through slowly and achieve a more comfortable lead, finishing the set at 21-15.

次局兩人分數還是咬得很緊,戴資穎暫時取得11:9領先,Fitriani突然發力將分數追成14:14平手,不過在此之後小戴展現前世界第一的身手,連拿7分將比賽給終結。

The second set was equally challenging. Tai managed to open a small gap at 11-9, but only to have Fitriani catch up with her 14-14. Afterward, Tai showed her prowess as former world No.1, closing the game with a back-to-back string of 7 points.

由於世界球后山口茜首戰意外落馬,使得戴資穎現在有機會在本屆賽事奪回球后,但前題是要先打進四強,這將會是她生涯的一大考驗。

Ever since reigning world No.1, Akane Yamaguchi (山口茜), was unexpectedly defeated and eliminated from the competition, Tai stands a better chance at regaining her title. Her focus now is reaching the semifinals, which may be her biggest test yet.

戴資穎將在今(22)晚16強賽對上南韓好手金佳恩。

Tai Tzu-ying will be playing against Kim Ga Eun from Korea tonight (Aug.22) in the round of 16.
