    The Thai WD pair, Puttita/Sapsiree, is getting stronger, with the tall, good-looking Puttita making good use of her height at the back.

    Aya Ohori is, imho, the 3rd-best JPN WS now, fast catching up with Nozomi and Akane.

    Busanan is in fine form these few weeks. This should be a close fight.

    Aya's forte is her x-court smash and drop shots. She's to learn how to handle deceptive players better, not as good as Akane in this respect.

    The frail-looking Aya has good stamina,a typical characteristic of JPN WS, covering the court quite well though often caught out by Busanan's deceptions but otherwise solid defense.

    Busanan seems unable to put G1's loss behind her soon enough.

    But Aya injecting pace to reduce Busanan's chances of playing too deceptively. and she races off to a hefty lead.

    A notable victory for Aya Ohori, another JPN up-and-coming star in the making.

    At the JPN Open last month, Aya Ohori lost a close two-setter to He Bingjiao in the semifinals,22-20, 21-17, proving she's another JPN WS player to watch. She's turning 20 on Oct 2nd next month.

    Ha!, I'm dreaming... Aya is 20 already. Thanks.

    The different date format on the different devices that I'm using, confuse me.

    By the way, He Bingjiao, born 21 March 1997 is still 19. :D (I didn't get the year wrong).

    I cannot figure this Inoue/ Kaneko combination out, is one of them short or is the other one tall?

    Tanongsak is going to blast Sony off with thundering smashes, superior fitness and solid defense unless Sony can do a Lee Hyun Il with exquisite stroke play using every inch of the court.

    Tan Kian Meng/Lai Pei Jing is a very promising pair but somehow I felt that HKSAR, Tse Ying Suet/Tang Chun Man, should've taken the decider, Tang is a bit quite raw.

    If Sony can move Tanongsak all over the court with well-placed shots, that should soften him somewhat and drain quite a bit of his energy as well, but easier sad than done.

    With ample GPs, TS can afford to slacken a bit.

    But he thought better of it after a while and decided to use his sledgehammer to finish it off.

    Tanongsak is immune to deception, practically all the Thai players, men and women, are conversant with it, their trademark.

    Tanongsak even varies his power smashes, not always straightforward but changing angle and direction to keep his opponent guessing.
