“We do not feel burdened as defending champions. We are committed to giving our best in every match,” said Fajar in PP PBSI's official statement, on Tuesday (12/3/2024).

The couple, who is often called Fajri, has made thorough preparations with a series of physical, technical and mental training together with the coaching team and other Indonesian teammates.

Even though the atmosphere in the arena has become normal for them, there is a significant difference in this edition, namely the use of gray carpet on the field.
