Ratchanok may miss tournaments

BADMINTON: World No.2 Ratchanok Intanon’s season is likely to be curtailed due to a knee injury, her handler Kamala Thongkorn said on Tuesday (Nov 8).

The former top-ranked shuttler has been suffering from a knock which she sustained in September, when she crashed out in the second round of the Korea Open.

She has since missed the Denmark Open and the French Open.

The 21-year-old was earlier expected to be back for next week’s China Open and the Hong Kong Open the week after, but unfortunately is still not fully fit.

“She has not recovered as quickly as we had hoped. It’s going to take a while longer,” Kamala said.

“We appraise her progress every day, and so far she is still unable to run properly.”

The Thai star suffered an injury to the same left knee during the Olympics in August.

Despite not being fully fit, she went on to play at the Japan Open and the Korea Open, where she lost in the quarter-finals and second round respectively.

“We rushed her back to play in Japan and South Korea,” Kamala said.

Kamala said that it was too late for her player to withdraw from the upcoming tournaments in China and Hong Kong.

So it is likely she will take to the court and play some shots before retiring in the first rounds, Kamala said.

This will earn her almost 5,000 points and help strengthen her grip on a place at the Dubai World Superseries Finals, according to Kamala.

Based on her current ranking, Kamala is confident that Ratchanok will qualify for the season finale, but she is unsure if the player will be able to recover in time for the event to be held from Dec 14-18.

“With just a month to go, I am not sure she can recover in time,” Kamala said.

“If not, then her season is over.”

Ratchanok is currently third in the rankings for Dubai and only needs to be the top eight to qualify for the World Superseries Finals.

Ratchanok, the 2013 world champion, won three titles in April but has since suffered a slump in form.

Owner of Banthongyord dessert factory, Kamala is giving away Thai sweets at Sanam Luang for people who pay respects to His Majesty the King, who passed away on Oct 13, at the Grand Palace.
