Correspondent Park Dae-ro = Table tennis hopeful Shin Yu-bin (19) and Joo Chun-hee (21)’s face-to-face match in the professional table tennis league failed. The match, which is the best box office card in professional table tennis, is expected to be concluded in the postseason with the head-to-head confrontation between the two players who will lead Korean women’s table tennis.
In the 2023 Dunamu Korea Professional Table Tennis League (KTTL) Women’s Korea League match held at Studio T (Gwanggyo Gymnasium), a table tennis stadium in Suwon, Gyeonggi Province on the 13th, Samsung Life Insurance, who ranked second in the Women’s Korea League, and Korean Air, who ranked third, met.
Even before the game, attention was focused on the confrontation between Shin Yu-bin, a member of Korean Air, and Joo Chun-hee, a member of Samsung Life Insurance. Shin Yu-bin is called a table tennis prodigy and is the next-generation ace selected as the youngest national representative in Korean table tennis history beyond Hyun Jung-hwa. Ju Chun-hee, a naturalized Chinese citizen, is nicknamed the monster for her Korea Professional Table Tennis League (KTTL) individual record, overwhelmingly ranked first.
Unfortunately, today’s match did not take place. Shin Yu-bin missed the game that day because of her injury prevention and conditioning.
The absence of Shin Yu-bin, who won four singles wins in her two matches after making her professional debut in her last five days, weighed down her Korean Air squad.
Korean Air Kim Ha-young was defeated by Samsung Life Lee Shion in the first match. Park Ga-hyun faced Joo Chun-hee in two matches, but was defeated. Kim Ha-young faced Joo Chun-hee in a 4-match ace match, but lost again.
Second-placed Samsung Life Insurance defeated third-placed Korean Air 3-1, eliminating the gap with leader Posco International. 메이저사이트
It seems that Shin Yu-bin and Joo Chun-hee’s confrontation will take place in the postseason.
The professional table tennis league regular league will be held until the 22nd. On the 23rd and 24th, the semi-playoffs (when the difference in points between 3rd and 4th places is within 6 points) will be held. Playoffs and championship decisions will be held on the 22nd and 25th of next month.
Samsung Life Insurance and Korean Air, who are currently in 2nd and 3rd place, are highly likely to face each other in the postseason unless there is a change. In the postseason, where there is no place to retreat, Shin Yu-bin and Joo Chun-hee are expected to play head-to-head.
