“The burden is definitely there but I just try to stay calm so that I can emerge the champion,” said the winner of BNI Sirnas A DKI Jakarta 2022.

In another match, Dhinda managed to prevail over Merilya Putri Hanantha from East Java in straight sets of 21-12 and 21-10.

“Earlier, the game was smooth, there were no significant obstacles. But I still made many mistakes because of the windy condition,” said Dhinda.
