Dueling Victories for the New NANOFLARE 700 at the Barcelona Spain Masters 2019

Date
26 February 2019

Barcelona, Spain –

Yonex’s new convention-defying headlight racquet made a successful debut this week at the Barcelona Spain Masters 2019, with two #TeamYonex athletes taking home a gold and a silver in two different categories.

In the opening match of the day, mixed doubles pairing Seo Seung Jae, carrying the NANOFLARE 700 in blue & green, and Chae Yujung (KOR) took on Chinese Taipei’s Wang Chi-Lin, wielding the red 700, and partner Cheng Chi Ya, with the former pairing taking the match in straight sets, 21-18, 21-15.

Wang, however, took his revenge in the men’s doubles – where he and partner Lee Yang were victorious over Seo and partner Kim Won-Ho (KOR), 21-8, 23-21. This comprehensive victory thus ensured that Wang and Seo both took home a gold and a silver, albeit in different categories. On the Women’s Doubles side of things, Korean pair Kim So Yeong and Kong Hee Yong saw off Japan’s Nami Matsuyama and Chiharu Shida, 23-21, 15-21, 21-17.

Meanwhile in the men’s singles event, Victor Axelsen emphatically returned to form with a comfortable victory over red hot favourite and fellow Dane Anders Antonsen, 21-14, 21-11.
