  • Kento Momota akan datang ke Malaysia Open 2023 bermodal gelar juara All Japan Badminton Championship.
  • Bintang bulu tangkis Jepang itu ingin membuktikan bahwa dirinya masih bisa memberikan penampilan terbaik.
  • Momota punya potensi berhadapan dengan Viktor Axelsen di babak 16 besar Malaysia Open 2023.

SKOR.id – Kento Momota akan menuju ke Malaysia Open 2023 dengan suasana hati ceria. Bintang bulu tangkis Jepang ini punya modal menghadapi turnamen yang bergulir pada 10-15 Januari tersebut.

Momota tampil dalam bentuk yang bagus saat sukses merebut gelar All Japan Badminton Championship kelimanya usai mengalahkan Kenta Nishimoto, 21-11, 21-16, di partai final, 30 Desember 2022 lalu.

Mantan tunggal putra nomor satu dunia itu sebelumnya pernah merengkuh gelar yang sama pada 2015, 2018, 2019 dan 2020. Selanjutnya, Ia bertekad melanjutkan momentum positif pada musim 2023.

“Saya berharap semua orang (sekarang) bisa melihat Kento Momota yang lebih kuat. Ini (2022) menjadi tahun menyakitkan, dan kali ini saya menampilkan permainan yang memenuhi ekspektasi saya sendiri,” ujarnya dilansir New Times Strait usai final.

Kento Momota berjuang untuk mendapatkan lagi performa terbaiknya sejak mengalami kecelakaan lalu lintas di Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia pada awal 2020 lalu. Insiden itu pun memengaruhi penampilannya.

Hal ini terbukti. Pebulu tangkis 27 tahun tersebut tersingkir di babak pertama dalam enam dari sembilan turnamen yang diikuti sepanjang 2022. Akibatnya, peringkat Momota merosot dari no. 2 jadi ke-18.   

“Saya sadar bahwa komentar seperti ‘era Momota sudah berakhir’ beredar luas di media sosial dan saya mengerti mengapa orang-orang mengatakan itu,” sang juara dunia 2018 dan 2019 menuturkan.

“Tapi saya masih bermain dan belum berniat untuk berhenti. Saya masih ingin semua orang bisa melihat penampilan terbaik saya. Dan saya harap semua orang akan terus mendukung saya,” imbuhnya.

Highlight Momota tahun lalu adalah mencapai final Malaysia Open. Ketika itu, ia kalah dari tunggal putra nomor satu dunia, Viktor Axelsen. Mereka bisa bertemu lagi di babak 16 besar turnamen kali ini.

Momota harus lebih dahulu mengatasi perlawanan wakil Prancis Toma Junor Popov di putaran pertama. Sedangkan Axelsen akan memulai upaya mempertahankan gelar dengan menghadapi Rasmus Gemke.
