Marín defeats Bing Jiao and will fight for the title of the Indonesian Master
The Spanish Carolina Marín beat the Chinese He Bing Jiao this Saturday in the semifinal of the Indonesian Master in two sets (11-21 and 19-21) and will compete tomorrow for the championship title, where last year she suffered a serious injury.

The victory against the Chinese, in 50 minutes, occurred in their most disputed match so far in the competition and the key lay in the success of the Spanish in the key moments of the match.

Both players went out on the court in high concentration, while from the beginning He Bing Jiao showed that the semi-final was going to be more difficult than Marín’s previous meetings, in which she has not given up a single set either.

The equality in the first round lasted until 7-7 on the scoreboard, with both flyers taking risks and being offensive, but the mistakes of the Chinese, who crashed several dunks to the net, opened a gap in the result and Marín ended up reducing to his rival without letting go of pressure.

In the second set, He Bing Jiao started better and led by 5-2, at which point the public at the Istora Senayan sports complex in Jakarta once again embraced Marín as they have throughout the tournament and the Huelva reacted with a high level of play to gradually equalize the game.

With this victory, the result of clashes between both players is 6-1 in favor of the Spanish, who already beat He Bing Jiao in September at the China Open.

The Huelva player will face tomorrow in the final the winner of the match between Chinese Wang Zhi Yi and Thai Ratchanok Intanon, world number 19 and 5 respectively.

Last year, Marin tore the ACL in his knee during the tournament held in Jakarta, where badminton is a mass sport and Carolina is one of the crowd’s favorite players.
