2024 Yonex All-England Badminton Championships. 

             125th Anniversary Championships.  

With a Royal Visit.


The only European player to make the finals was Carolina Marin from Spain. Carolina had previously won the woman’s singles title nine years previous, in the final she would have to play 4th seed Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi, Akane the night before had an 82-minute exhausting semifinal against the 1st seed An Se Young from Korea. In the first game of the final Yamaguchi had three game points at 20-17, and then two more before losing to Marin 26-24. The efforts from the previous night’s semifinal match saw Yamaguchi having to retire at 1-11 with a hip injury, giving Marin her 2nd Yonex All-England woman’s singles title.

In the men’s singles, two Indonesians reach the final guaranteeing Indonesia a Yonex All-England champion for the first time in 30 years. Ironically back in 1994, it was also two Indonesians who had reached the final with Heryanto Arbi coming out on top. Close friends Jonatan Christie and Anthony Sinisuka Ginting had reached a Yonex All-England final for the first time. Christie, who had entered the final ranked four places below his opponent, withstood fightbacks in both games before taking the title 21-15,21-14.
