Two games of emotions, long and intense rallies

Right from the beginning, Nami Matsuyama/Chiharu Shida (JPN) struggled to keep the number of unforced errors low. Their opponents from Korea, Ye Na Chang and Kyung Eun Jung, knew well, how to use that to their advantage. 

It was an emotional and enthralling first game, with a lot of long and exhausting rallies. Matsuyama/Shida weren't happy with their performance and shared the emotions with the audience. With the score of 21-16, Chang/Jung made the first step towards the title.

The Koreans perfected their play in the ongoing second game and gained a considerable advance by the time of the break. Matsuyama/Shida became more frustrated - for one last time they attacked with all power and were able to reduce the backlog by three points. It would not change the match in great manner, Ye Na Chang and Kyung Eun Jung triumphed in a manner of great self-confidence and steady performance with 21-16 and 21-13.
