The final match of the group stage, against Azerbaijani-Indonesian tennis player Ade Resky Dwicahyo, could be Tien Minh’s last match at the Tokyo Olympics. With only the top player in each group going to continue, the hope of the Vietnamese representative’s knockout round is not much after the loss of world number three Anders Antonsen 13-21, 13-21.

At the age of 38, Tien Minh represents Vietnam’s men’s badminton at the 2020 Olympics as the oldest tennis player. He was praised by the BWF World Badminton Federation for his endurance, in a Facebook post yesterday. Tien Minh has never even mentioned that he will retire after the Olympics, when the SEA Games and Asiad will take place in 2022.

The match against Dwicahyo could be Tien Minh's last match at the Olympics.

The match against Dwicahyo could be Tien Minh’s last match at the Olympics.

Tien Minh ranked 32nd on the Road to Tokyo rankings, having just qualified to win tickets to the Olympics and for the fourth time in a row. However, the Vietnamese representative has never passed the first round in the Olympics.

In 2008, Tien Minh lost to Taiwan’s number one tennis player Hsieh Yu-hsing (Ta Du Hung) with a score of 1-2 in the third round, and soon left Beijing. Four years later in London, Tien Minh attended the tournament as the seed of the group. He won against Belgian player Yuhan Tan, but lost to Indian opponent Parupalli Kashyap two blank games and left the tournament. In the 2016 Rio group stage, Tien Minh won two matches, but lost to Lin Dan who was superior in terms of level. In 2021, in a group with too strong opponent Antonsen, Tien Minh will almost certainly not be able to break the early elimination.

The Tokyo Olympic badminton men’s singles event has 42 players, divided into 14 groups. Only the group winners will advance to the knockout round. If he wins Dwicahyo, Tien Minh can raise a small hope of passing the group stage, and if he loses, he will be eliminated. Rival Dwicahyo has Azebaijan nationality, ranked 80th in the world, 20 places behind Tien Minh. The two tennis players have never met before.
