Tomorrow is the big day! The Sudirman Cup 2019 will start in Nanning, China. The opening ceremony already took place, so now it Is time for the players to come in action. Today we will have a final preview before this events starts. Let’s take a look at Greenland, competing in group 4!

Greenland travelled to Nanning with a delegation of eight young players. It is the first time for all of them competing at Sudirman Cup. Badminton Europe spoke with two of these player: Sara Lindskov Jacobsen and Jens-Frederik Nielsen.

- I am really happy for the opportunity and I love playing team-matches! Nielsen stated to Badminton Europe

- We have never played in such a big hall before, which for sure is going to be a big challenge! Jacobsen added.

Best shot

Greenland faces Macau and Kazakhstan during this tournament. Since group 4 only consist of one subgroup, there will be no additional play-offs and are these the only matches Greenland will play.

- We have not met our opponents before, so it is difficult to know what to expect. Jacobsen continued.

- We do know our opponents have more experience playing tournaments. But of course we will give it our best shot and fight our bottoms off!! Nielsen added.

Take home

The players of Greenland do not get these matches every day. Naturally, they want to gain as much from this experience as possible.

- I hope I can find my A-game. My goal is to be the absolute best version of myself on court and that will hopefully give me some good matches, Nielsen stated.

Jacobsen added to that:
- we will of course do our best to get home with some good results from this tournament!
