“We are of course very pleased to win our best title at Istora. And this is a big thing for us, “said Polii. “We are trying to continue to make long rallies even though we are honestly very tired. From the beginning we never thought about the results, we just tried to keep fighting, “he added.
With this result, the pair Greysia Polii / Apriyani Rahayu successfully posted 106 wins with a total of 48 defeats and entrenched in the position of six women’s doubles categories in the Badminton World Federation ranking list.
