2023 Yonex All-England Badminton Championships

AN Se Young (Korea) and CHEN Yu Fei (China).

It had been 27 years since Korea has had a woman’s singles Yonex All-England champion. An Se Young after her disappointment at last year’s championships being runner-up was desperate to place herself in badminton history and replicate her illustrious predecessor Bang Soo Hyun.

Bang Soo Hyun who lifted the Challenge Bowl after winning the women’s singles title at the 1996 Yonex All-England Championships, later that year she would go on to win the women’s singles gold medal at the Atlanta Olympics.

An Se Young had a comparatively easy passage to the semi-finals after being given a walkover in the quarter-finals by Spain’s Caralina Marin. The 21-year-old Korean then knocked out Tokyo Olympic silver medallist Tai Tzu Ying from Chinese Taipei in an 82-minute semi-final on the Saturday evening. An Se Young showing no signs of tiredness from the previous evening, smashed her way to the women’s singles title by beating Tokyo 2020 Olympic gold medallists Chen Yu  Fei from China 21-17, 10-21, 21-19.
