Had heard of her injury at the Olympics but had not seen it until clicking on the OP's link. I almost cried watching her lying on the floor. I can't believe she got up again and tried to play!!
That woman has guts! Get better soon Sayaka.
Hope to hear from her soon and see her come back as strong as ever. She is a tireless worker on court;normally, her court movement may appear a bit untidy but very efficient. That unfortunate incident had to happen on the world's grandest stage must be devastating for her. Same for Wang Xin and I remember another Polish MD player, all distressed and distraught by injuries during the London Olympics.
Sayaka Sato just turned 22, Happy Birthday. I believe she still has a bright future ahead in badminton. Not so lucky for the 27-year-old Wang Xin,born 10 Nov 1985, losing the bronze medal and age is against her to make a good or decent comeback.
Glad to hear she's recovering, I too had tears in my eyes seeing her trying to get up after her injury. Out of curiosity, are the any details in regards to the injury she suffered because it definitely looked knee related..
