Barcelona — Yonex’s new convention-defying headlight racquet made its debut this past week at the Barcelona Spain Masters 2019, wielded by two different #TeamYonex athletes, who both took home a gold and a silver, both against each other, in two different categories.  

In the first match of the day, mixed doubles, South Korea’s Seo Seung Jae, carrying the NANOFLARE 700 in blue/green, and Chae Yujung faced off against Chinese Taipei’s Wang Chi-Lin, wielding the red 700, and Cheng Chi Ya. In straight games, Seo and Chae captured victory, 21-18, 21-15. But in men’s doubles, Wang had his revenge. There, along with partner Lee Yang, he was victorious over Seo and partner, Kim Won Ho, 21-8, 23-21, ensuring that Wang and Seo both went home with a gold and a silver, just in different categories.

In men’s singles, Victor Axelsen made a return to form, where he defeated red-hot fellow Dane Anders Antonsen soundly, 21-14, 21-11. While in women’s doubles, Korean pair Kim So Yeong and Kong Hee Yong outlasted Japan’s Nami Matsuyama and Chiharu Shida, 23-21, 15-21, 21-17.
