The next opponent is Sun Yingsha, who reigns as the ‘absolute top’ in women’s table tennis in the 2020s.

Sun Yingsha, who has no rivals in terms of speed and accuracy of shots,

is in good spirits, winning three gold medals, including the women’s singles title,

at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games that closed last month.

Shin Yu-bin is also on the rise, winning the first Asian Games gold medal in Korean table tennis in 21 years with Jeon Ji-hee (Mirae Asset Securities) in Hangzhou,

but it is true that there is a large gap in skills with Sun Ying-sa.

Shin Yu-bin has lost all 5 matches against Sun Ying-sha.

However, Shin Yu-bin plans to challenge Sun Ying-sha ‘for fun’.

Shin Yu-bin said through WTT’s official channel that “(the round of 16) was not an easy match,

but she overcame it well,” and that she “will prepare well (against Sun Yingsha) and make a good match.”

The Shin Yu-bin said that it was helpful to him that Lee Sang-soo (Samsung Life Insurance) and Lim Jong-hoon (Korea Exchange)

defeated Chinese players in succession to advance to the quarterfinals in the men’s singles match earlier that day.

Shin Yu-bin said, “(Lee) Sang-su and (Lim) Jong-hoon did well in a difficult match,

which also gave me strength.”

Lee Sang-soo caused a stir by defeating world No. 1 Pan Zhendong 3-1, and Lim Jong-hoon defeated No. 6 Liang Jingkun 3-1.

Lee Sang-soo is 27th, and Lim Jong-hoon is 15th.

In particular, Lee Sang-soo won his first career victory against Pan Jeon-dong,

who had lost all 14 matches.
