“When I faced Chou Tien Chen at the 2022 World Championships, I believed it was the pinnacle of my career. The result was terrible,” said Jonatan Christie, launching from BWF.
“However, if we look at it from a different perspective, it was my finest hour. And I have developed since then.”
“If you ask me about my best performances, it’s not always about results. But that was my best moment, “concluded fellow countryman Anthony Ginting.
Despite failing at the 2022 World Championships, Jonatan Christie has looked impressive throughout the tournament this season.
