Soraya De Visch Eijbergen is definitely back from her injury, and the ambitions are big for the former World number 56.

When a badminton player is getting injured, you cannot be sure, that the player will return to the scene on the same level as they previously had. But Dutch Soraya De Visch Eijbergen is at the moment showing, that she is ready to come back to the level she had, before getting injured in early 2017.

- When you start again you are pretty nervous, and you are thinking “ah, can I still play good? Can I still win these matches?” But I think when you work hard and believe in yourself, then I think it is possible to come back and get better, Soraya De Visch Eijbergen says.

- Believe in yourself is the key, the Dutch adds.

Visch Eijbergen will in 2018 mainly be playing European tournaments while getting her ranking back.


- I never think about the end goal, but playing the World Championships and coming back and play the European Championships are big goals for me. I want to qualify for the European Championships, and my goal is to get a medal there.
