South Korea Wins Uber Cup 2022

After a thrilling final at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand, Korea stunned defending champions China to capture their second Uber Cup title. Korea fought back from behind twice to deny China a record-extending 16th title in the famous team tournament in a tie that lasted close to 90 minutes apiece.

In the deciding singles match, Korea’s 46th-ranked Sim Yu-jin faced China’s 15th-ranked Wang Zhiyi, with the final knotted at 2-2. Sim, who turned 23, beat Wang 28-26, 18-21, 21-8 in an hour and 28-minute match.

After a surprising run in Bangkok, Korea won the Uber Cup for the first time in 12 years. The Asian giants beat India 5-0 to win their group, then defeated Denmark and Japan 3-0 in the quarter-finals and semi-finals, respectively.

World No. 3 In the first game, Chen was defeated by fourth-ranked An by 21-17. The Korean had a five-point lead early in the second game, but Chen came back to win that game 21-15 and the decider 22-20, despite an ankle injury concern.

In the second doubles match of the final, Korea’s Km Hye Jeong and Kong Heeyong defeated Ping Huang and Li Wen Mei in straight games, forcing the final to a decider.
