“Although she lost Yushae can be very proud of her performance and to be level after 3/4 of the match with the world number 1 player was a great effort,” her coach said. “She plays Kinga Koza [world number 6] from Poland today at 2pm Rio time and will then have another group match against Katerina Curinova from the Czech Republic tomorrow. The top 2 from her pool will progress to the quarter finals.”
