Coach Guoyu's two faint moves! Abandoning the world No. 1, Chen Yufei failed miserably, and Shi Yuqi succeeded in men's doubles. In the semifinals of the 2023 Sudirman Cup, Kokuba narrowly defeated Japan 3-2 in five sets and will face South Korea in the final. And in this game, the two faint moves of the Guoyu coaching staff almost caused Guoyu to lose, first abandoning the mixed doubles world number one Zheng Siwei / Huang Yaqiong, reusing Feng Yanzhe / Huang Dongping, and then let Chen Yufei tired to fight, if not for Shi Yuqi, Liu Yuchen / Ou Weiyi, Chen Qingchen / Jia Yifan withstood the pressure, Guo Yu may have suffered defeat.
In the previous group stage and 1/4 final, Guoya performed very well, swept 4 consecutive games to win, did not lose a set, on the other hand, the Japanese team played a little stumbling, the group stage lost 0-5 to South Korea, 1/4 final 3-2 narrowly defeated Thailand, of which women's singles world number one Akane Yamaguchi is frequently lost, and this gives Guoya an illusion, the Japanese team is now in a very poor state, so in the semifinals, Guoyu took the initiative to change, abandoned mixed doubles world number one Zheng Siwei / Huang Yaqiong, sent Feng Yanzhe / Huang Dongping took the lead. Although Feng Yanzhe/Huang Dongping has performed very well recently, and the world ranking has risen to 7th, but this Sudirman Cup is the first major competition that the two have participated in after their partnership, in which Feng Yanzhe's state has been unstable, which buried hidden dangers for the subsequent loss, after the start of the game, Feng Yanzhe made a lot of mistakes, although Huang Dongping's performance was quite stable, but the mixed doubles obviously could not rely on Huang Dongping alone, after 3 rounds of battle, Feng Yanzhe/Huang Dongping suddenly collapsed when the tiebreaker was leading, In the end, they lost 1-2 to Kyohei Yamashita / Nanaru Shinoya.
If Guoyu sends Zheng Siwei/Huang Yaqiong to take the lead, it can completely get the opener, but with the loss of Feng Yanzhe/Huang Dongping, Guoyu suddenly fell into passivity, because the women's singles and men's doubles Guoyu behind did not dominate. In the second set of the men's singles, Shi Yuqi won two consecutive games after losing the first set to defeat Naraoka Kodai 2-1 to help Kuniwa tie the score. In the third set of women's singles, Guoyu sent Olympic champion Chen Yufei against Akane Yamaguchi, the world's No. 1 in women's singles, because Akane Yamaguchi lost to An Qiying and Li Meimiao in the previous matches, so the Guoyu coaching staff continued to let Chen Yufei play, but from the previous record, Chen Yufei lost more and won less, although He Bingjiao faced Akane Yamaguchi is also more and less wins, but He Bingjiao has rested for two games, from the perspective of physical fitness alone, choose to let He Bingjiao fight Akane Yamaguchi, maybe there will be a miracle, but Akane Yamaguchi has lost consecutive games before, Let the coaching staff think that Akane Yamaguchi's current state is very poor, so Chen Yufei is tired to fight, but the result is that Chen Yufei lost 0-2 and made many mistakes.
The overall score is 1-2 behind, Guoyu has been forced into a corner, the fourth set of men's doubles, Liu Yuchen / Ou Weiyi against Homu Zhuo Lang / Kobayashi Yugo, although Homu Zhuo Lang / Kobayashi Yugo performance this season is relatively average, but as the World Championship men's doubles champion, whether it is competition experience, or comprehensive strength, Liu Yuchen / Ou Weiyi is difficult to compete with Homu Zhuo Lang / Kobayashi Yugo, just when everyone thought that Guo Yu would definitely lose, Liu Yuchen / Ou Weiyi ushered in an outbreak in the case of losing a game first, and won two consecutive games, In the tiebreaker, he scored 6 consecutive points to help Guoya tie the score again. In the decider women's doubles, world number one Chen Qingchen/Jia Yifan did not give Yuki Fukushima/Saika Hirota any chance, and soon won 2-0, and finally Guoya reversed 3-2 and advanced to the final. In fact, Guoyu could have ended the match in 4 sets, but the coaching staff was too big and directly abandoned Zheng Siwei/Huang Yaqiong, which almost caused irreparable consequences.
