    The commentator just said Chan YK's birthday is today, 13th Oct, turns 28.

    Based on yesterday's play, I think Wei Nan may have a slight edge.

    Wei Nan is so cool,calm and collected. Plus his cumulative experience and maturity, he displays fine badminton. To a similar extent is Chan Yan Kit but Wei Nan's height and reach may tilt the match in his favour; nevertheless, a bit too early to say.

    Wei Nan at 11-4 sensing victory, takes his foot off the pedal, gifting so many points, allowing Chan YK back into the game.

    Busanan is very fond of sliced drop shots from the baseline.

    Haha the Thai coach is like making a running commentary behind Busanan making sure she gets it into her head.

    Gu Juan lacks confidence indeed as shown on her face.

    Come on smile a bit and get rid of that sour-looking face!

    Gu Juan really lacks a killer smash.

    My feeling it that, with Gu Juan's nice temperament and demeanour, it's not easy for her to be assertive on court and almost impossible to develop a killer instinct.

    Have to admit, Busanan is the better player. The title is hers to lose.

    We should see Busanan in the top 10 very soon, a clever and decisive player, mature for her age.

    Gu Juan tries to attack a bit more but her smashes lack power.

    Busanan did it.. So offensive and admirable play for her age. Nice to see her taking the title for the second time.. Good..

    Without a killer smash, Gu Juan could not finish off the point even after successfully out maneuvered her opponent. She tried to out rally her opponent but Busanan is too good and deceptive.

    Not surprising that GJ lost.

    She has no confidence in herself as I've said earlier.

    She did not take her chances well, rather she allowed Busanan to attack her weak clearance. She must learn to do what Busanan did to her by smashing the high returns and not just clearing back defensively as a habitual reaction. The few occasion when she attacked, Busanan was in disarray.

    Her mental strength is lacking which made her lose focus and lumber on the court.
    She is unlikely to win the next time they meet again if she continues in this state of mental wilderness.
