    The underrated Japanese WS player, Sayaka Sato showed her best to stop the world number one Ratchanok Intanon winning streak in gruelling rubber games and she will be challenged by her nemesis next Sung Ji Hyun, fifth meeting in this year. The arduous journey for top-seed Li Xuerui in this event from the very early round, she fought hard to eliminate Porntip Buranaprasertsuk and Akane Yamaguchi and the projected tight battle will be happened tomorrow against Tai Tzu Ying.

    Regarding RI's defeat and the possibility of keeping her WR of 1 after this early exit :
    In some ways, getting the number one seed in Rio is not important for WS. Because there are 5 or 6 ladies of equal strength. To avoid one is just to get another.

    If anyone wants to make good money

    Lee Dong Keun is your answer. We will surely witness the classic Lee - Lee rivalry in the semi finals.

    She can drop no further than to Rank n°2 no matter who wins this tournament. I do agree it doesn't make much difference indeed, especially because as much as being N°1 or N°2 means avoiding playing Carolina M., CM is not actually the most dangerous opponent for Ratchanok.

    Thanks CLELY for the amazing summary. Very important test in WS:
    • Saina vs. WSX (H2H 6-7)should be a very tough match, although Saina has been really not playing much lately so we don't really what's her form now but this is sure an important match for her.
    • WY-NO (H2H 2-3)is a another repeat of the Dubai Superseries Finale and All England QF.
    • LXR - TTY (H2H 10-2) should be cracker too. TTY has shown some fabulous form in and out of this year and really made improvements on consistency. TTY has also won their last two encounters convicingly so she should be quite confident despite the overwhelming H2H advantage of LXR
    • SS-SJH (H2H 1-11): I expect a straight sets affairs for SJH except if SS made miraculous improvement as her win yesterday migh suggest. However if this is the usual inconsistent and mentally weak SS, SJH -the definition of accuracy and consistency- will have no problem disposing of her, for 12th time. Maybe I'll be surprised, let's see if her win against the world n°1 gives her the confidence. .
    In MS: I don't think the top seeds will have any problem to pass to the next round.. This is the category that really suffers the most from the absence of the europeans top players JO/ VA/ HV/ MZ and obviously the dethroned Japanese KM. Without them, there isn't any real competition/ tough cookie for the top seeds until SF stage.MD as well to some extent -the russians and danes always spice up the competition against other asian players.

    Talking about Kento Momota, yesterday BWF deleted Kento's name completely from their ranking list. It also happened to Kenichi Tago. I think this is too much. Kento didn't break any BWF regulation and BWF doesn't have any right to do this. Japan Badminton Association must have suggested BWF to do this. This has gone too far. Kento should have a lawyer to defend his right.

    So suddenly everyone below Kento Momota is up 1 place higher in the ranking list except WZM.

    I know I was so shocked :O Although it makes sense since they are not part of the Japanese Badminton Association anymore. What a huge loss for the sport :/ That's why players should be able to play outside of the national team..

    Sadly indeed. For NBA and Japanese peoples, Kento Momota illegal gambling case has tarnished Japan badminton reputation, honour and dignity is really important, above all things even Olympic Games gold medal.

    I totally agree. You are in the world ranking as an individual, not as an extension of your country. There are many independent players who are actively participating and in the ranking.

    Japan national team has the right to kick players off the team (and to select players for Olympics etc). But BWF has no right to take players off the list. As far as I'm concerned, Momota is an independent player. Even more amazing, Tago was an independent player when this whole fiasco unfolded. Did BWF say criminals (crime in the widest sense of the word) cease to become professional players?

    Edit: i should have quoted udin udik above

    Suddenly i cannot check BAC website, then I check the domain whois:
    BadmintonAsia.org is hosted in Culver City, California, US at 72.47.228.129 and expires on 2016-04-28

    Does the BAC's web admin forget about the domain expiry date?

    This is ridiculous. The BWF is neither police or judge! Way over the line.

    BWF is a coward organisaiton that is afraid for standing up for the players. Does BWF think the people who decided to ban the players are more important for the sport than Momota and the other banned players?

    Well.. How BWF stands is way better than.. for example NFL. . Momota and Co. violate some rules in their assoc., get taken down by the association, which means that he is banned from his association. At least for Japan, he cannot do anything until the ban is lifted, because the players got listed in BWF through their respective associations. He broke the rules of NBA. So be it.

    Should BWF meddle in the association for their respective decision? Would any of you agree if for example; BWF meddle in how PELATNAS or any national team selects their players, for whatever reasons?

    And still, Listing as a player from a country, independent or not, still require you to list yourself in the respective association.. So.. If the policy of NBA is to unlist and deregister any player if they do criminal activity... Yeah.. Momota and Co... must do it from other assoc.

    What about tweeting to BWF official twitter account: @bwfmedia
    This is a big lose to badminton, and BWF should have considered it as their main consideration before making this stupid decision.
