Long-term training without competitions made Li Zijia, Malaysia’s number one men’s single, feel "boring".
Due to the new crown epidemic, the World Badminton Federation announced the postponement of many games. Although Li Zijia has been given more time to prepare for the Tokyo Olympics next year, there is no international competition for a long time, and the players' mental pressure is even greater.
The 22-year-old Li Zijia injured his back muscle during the competition in the Malaysian Badminton Association in August. Now he has fully recovered. He was expecting to re-enter the international competition in November and participate in the Asian Open in Bangkok, Thailand. Unfortunately, the World Badminton The United Nations announced the postponement to January next year.
He told Bernama that the players need to return to the arena after a long truce, but the games including the Tangyu Cup are postponed, which puts more mental pressure on everyone.
"This is the first time I haven't played in a game for so long. Although I think it's okay so far, I was bored because there was no game. This will inevitably affect the mentality of the players."
He pointed out that he will discuss the next training plan with the coach, hoping to increase outdoor activities and get ready to return to the court. (All sports)
