In the first round of the Yonex Dutch Open 2018, Soraya de Visch Eijbergen and Gayle Mahulette did not disappoint their audience. Both Dutch women progressed to the second round in women’s singles.

Soraya de Visch Eijbergen played a long and tough match against Clara Azurmendi (Spain). But after three games it was the de Visch Eijbergem who claimed the victory.

- I was not good in the match yet during the first game. Then I speeded up the paste in the second and third game, De Visch Eijbergen commented after her match to Badminton Europe.

-It was the solution to outplay her.

Gayle Mahulette beat Ozge Bayrak (Turkey) in straight games. This was a good revenge for her as she lost to Bayrak during the Czech Open less than two weeks ago.

She might have gotten extra energy from all that support. Because as De Visch Eijbergen stated.

- Playing for the home audience feels amazing!
