Last goodbye from Christinna Pedersen

Mathias Christiannsen and Christinna Pedersen were defeated at the Yonex Swiss Open quarterfinal. After a 71 minute match, the Chinese pair LU/CHEN was able to win the match to reach the semifinals despite a strong support from the crowd for the Danish during the match. 


Lot of emotions in the St Jakobshalle when you know this is the last match of Christinna Pedersen of her international career. We had the pleasure to witness a great moment of badminton. 


« I want to thank Mathias » said Christinna after the match. 


The crowd gave them a warm goodbye with a great applause. 


« I’m very happy with our partnership, it’s sad that it end here but we gave everything on court and it was so close. » Mathias added. 


We wish her and Kamilla all the best for the future.
