Ville Lång - Playing To Your Strengths
By Hans-Kristian Solberg Vittinghus
Finally back with about guest episode and this time with the highly entertaining Ville Lång from Finland! Ville is a former world no. 21 in men's singles who retired in 2016, but before doing so, he managed to win 15 international titles and 10 Finnish national championships in a row! In this episode we talk a lot about how he tried to beat players, who he saw as superior players in terms of skill, by playing a lot of mind games and dominate them in the mental game. We also dig into some of his career highlights like beating Tzu Wei Wang in the final of Scottish Open after being 4 matchpoints down - and another epic comeback at the Swedish Masters 2014. Generally this is an episode full of fun anecdotes and stories, which is no surprise as Ville is one of the most charismatic players on the badminton tour the past couple of decades. So don't miss out - you'll also get to know Ville's future plans for Finnish badminton, both as a coach and a board member. All of this and much more packed into 1 entertaining hour!
