"We should play with a long attack, but my game is so smooth that the opponent easily restore the attack," said Owi in the official website of PP Badminton Association All Indonesia (PBSI).

Owi admitted his game with Butet in the deciding game affected four points that followed in the second game of the world's oldest premiere super series level tournament.

"The results of our match today were not affected last year.On our two meetings with them before, we've been able to win.Our mistake is only in the second game so our game is depressed," said Butet
