    Yes! Another one is Sayaka versus Yihan, and I have a feeling that'll be interesting to see how poorly WYH fares against a swiftly reactive, attacking player like Takahashi whom she's never met before.

    Let's hope Busanan can take LXR out. LXR is a great player, but let's not have her in yet another final!

    WSX and NJ played the last match of the day. At the minimum, they should be put in the evening session on the next day.

    Why WSX has to play in the afternoon against someone who played on the prior day 12 hours earlier?

    If these doubles players, it may be more difficult to schedule. But these are singles players.

    Yup, strange arrangement...
    MAS XD, Chan PS/Goh LY finally took revenge over GER pair Fuchs/Michels in two close games, 22-20 / 22-20.

    Chan/Goh should won the easy 2nd game which leading 15-8, and then the GER pair won't give up and keep up from trailing to deuce 20-20 before Chan/Goh sealed it 22-20, no wonder how the GER can defeat KOR top pair Yoo/Jang...

    CPS/GLY winning margin are always close because CPS can't score points when he is serving.

    You've a point there. A test of her endurance and willpower in her second back-to-back tournaments in two consecutive months.

    CPS actually do more flick serves than low serves as CPS's low serves is very weak and easy being pounced by receivers...

    I doubt it would happen. I don't mind if LXR in the final as long as she is not facing another player from CHN.

    Porntip is an aggressive attacking player whom I enjoy watching but she is vulnerable to wild swings, brilliant in one game and suddenly cracks up the next. If she improves on her consistency, I believe she will score many good results and win more titles.

    Actually, I think Saina is similar to Porntip, so I'd say the same applies to her.

    Yeah, her smashes are very good and comes with deadly effect. But the main issues are her ability of maintaining her momentum and winning games in a consistent manner. One of her greatest weakness, I personally feel that, is she is very prone to unforced errors which resulted in quite a number of expensive points loss. But then again, time is on her side though :D

    I suspect WSX is beginning to tire.

    Can the last remaining Indian top player advance to the next round?

    All eyes are on SN who is now lagging slightly in the rubber against Thailands's Porntip 11-14

    Hopefully SN will save the day for IND.
