    Just because shixian won sindhu today, is it worth to target a whole country mass?? What a stupid comment !!! If he targets indian masses, there are much more than this to target chinese masses. BUt i don't want to go much deeper in this regard.

    Of WSX's three previous losses to Sindhu in their H2H, the first two were during WSX' slump period, so I wouldn't read too much into it; rather, it's their 3rd meeting at the Swiss Open that I'm more concerned about which I partly attributed to WSX being in unwound state immediately after her strenuous effort in winning the AE title the week before.

    That's why before her match with Sindhu today, I had only at most 70% confidence in her despite my intuition telling me the current revivified WSX is truly among the top 3 WS in the world and should be able to handle just about anyone in the ROW.

    In fact, in the match with Sindhu just now, WSX didn't have to do anything special to beat her except to keep her head about her and not let anything affect her negatively. Actually I was more worried about WSX's possible psychological handicap towards Sindhu in their prior 0-3 H2H than anything else; fortunately, she was mature and confident enough to get her act together after the slip-up in G2.

    With Sindhu out of the way, WSX has another tough opponent in Sayaka Takahashi next, followed by either Sung JH or Mitani Minatsu awaiting her, yet another tricky proposition.

    They changed LCW vs Ajay Kumar to Court 3...

    That was the one I was waiting to watch...

    For WSX and Sindhu, well, [FONT=Microsoft YaHei, Verdana, arial, sans-serif]sometimes you win and sometimes you don't. [/FONT]

    Among the top 4 seeds: Wang SX got the toughest route to meet the other top 4 seeds in semi:

    Wang SX has to beat: Sindhu(9), Takahashi(11), Sung(6),
    Li XR has to beat: Hirose(15), Jindapon(12), Bae (5),
    Wang YH has to beat: Porntip(10), Uchita(120), Nehwal(8)
    Intanon has to beat: April(32), Murgunde (89), Yao(28)

    Intanon got the easiest draw, unfortunately she withdrew.

    Wang SX got the toughest route. Takahashi was the newly crowned at Germany open. Sindhu and Sung are very tough too. Li XR got all 3 tough opponents too. Wang YH got 2 tough opponents, while Intanon got none.

    Here are the toughest opponents the top seeds have to overcome before they meet each other:

    Top 4:
    Wang SX (3)
    Li XR (3)
    Wang YH (2)
    Intanon (0) ( If I were Intanon, I would definitely have played India)

    Top 8: (number of tough opponents before meet other seeds)
    Bae (0)
    Tai (2)
    Nehwal (0)
    Sung (1)


    Nehwal got relatively easiest draw:

    Nehwal's opponents: Prutsch(80), Natcha(100), the easiest for seeds.

    I dare say there is no need to run away with ourselves. We have had a storm in the teacup and it now time to move past that. Back to the tournament please.
