Speaking to BWF, Marin said that: “I am making good progress in my recovery, although I don’t know how long it will take me to recover 100%, but I am happy with the progress.”
“When I was informed about the torn ACL injury, I was really sad and cried. Then I said to myself that things happened, so I need to think positively. The road to recovery would require patience.”
“I have confidence in myself and my team. They support me every day. My focus is to restore my knees to 100%. When I return to the game, I hope to be at 100% and able to give my best.”
Marin also thanked her fans for their continued support during the difficult time.
