    *Quarterfinal Highlights :
    - Chen Long (CHN) v Anthony Ginting (INA)

    - Matsutomo/Takahashi (JPN) v Bao YX/Chen QC (CHN)
    - Chan PS/Goh LY (MAS) v Liu Yuchen/Tang Jinhua (CHN)


    Chinese unseeded pairs knocked out two seededs in third day tournament, the new combination Liu YC/Tang JH stunned strong favourite Danish finest Fischer/Pedersen then followed by reigning World Junior Champion Zheng SW/Chen QC to oust English married couple Chris & Gabby Adcock, 5th seed of this tournament. Another two established CHN combinations, Lu K/Huang YQ also Liu C/Bao YX also progressed and will face off for quarterfinal contest tomorrow. Indonesia also has guaranteed 1 last four ticket through Widianto/Dili against current All England winner, Jordan/Susanto. Defending champion Reginald Lee/Chau HW couldn't repeat their fantastic run in this tournament, downed to Chan PS/Goh LY in straight-sets.

    Four interesting women’s singles quarterfinal ties are going to the script, none of the underdogs could spring an upset in last sixteen. Four China ladies marched on with one last four berth has been sealed, the Olympic Champion Li Xuerui will up against her best friend Wang Shixian. Current world number two Wang Yihan will repeat INA Premier final duel against the skillful Tai Tzu Ying and Sun Yu has Japanese wonder teen Akane Yamaguchi. The only clash which doesn’t involve Chinese player will pit former world champion Ratchanok Intanon v London OG bronze medalist Saina Nehwal, this should be a big match tomorrow.

    The youngsters shine here, Anthony Ginting eliminated Indian promising talent, Sameer Verma. Jeon Hyeok Jin who raised his profile as one of upcoming stars overcame Vietnamese veteran Nguyen Tien Minh then Heo Kwang Hee, came from behind, after painful losing first game with sudden-death scoreline, 29-30, this former world junior champion overpowered Chinese Wang Zhengming in next two games, Wang retired at 11-2 of deciding game due to injury. Recent SIN Superseries winner Sony Dwi Kuncoro who outplayed Tian Houwei earlier succumbed to Indian number one, Srikanth Kidambi. Another second round outcomes saw Hans Kristian Vittinghus was pushed to the limit by the Englishman Rajiv Ouseph then he will take on Japanese left-hander Sho Sasaki. The strong favourite Chen Long disposed Zulfadli Zulkiffli and will set up a meeting with the explosive Ginting, an intriguing test for two-time World Champion.

    Huang YQ/Tang JH once again stunned Pedersen/Juhl after last week first round, this combination looks lethal at the moment. Their successful was followed by the unranked Bao YX/Chen QC to surprise Japan experienced pair, Matsuo/Naito and will up against top-ranked Matsutomo/Takahashi. China has sealed 1 semifinal berth in this discipline, Tang/Yu who battled hard to overcome Vivian Hoo/Woon KW have their teammates, Huang/Tang. Second seed, Maheswari/Polii are expected to go smoothly in semifinal, thanks to favourable draw.

    Three INA pairs cruised into last eight but no ticket for the top-seed, last match of the second round delivered thrilling and high quality men's doubles match, former All England champion Koo KK/Tan BH won over narrowly tournament favourite Ahsan/Setiawan, the Malaysian duo grabbed three consecutive points to seal the deciding match, 21-19. The Indonesian ace has bad start in Superseries tour this season as they failed to reach semifinal so far, All England, MAS Premier, SIN Open, INA Premier and here in Sydney. Two setbacks of this department were delivered by Angriawan/Saputro and Liu C/Zheng SW who dumped 8th seed Goh VS/Tan WK and 5th seed Li JH/Liu YC respectively. Second seed, Fu HF/Zhang N cleared their early rounds hurdle and next will see Indonesian young duo, Gideon/Sukamuljo. Fourth seed Endo/Hayakawa needed extra game to overcome Gunawan/Kido, an unfamiliar opponent will wait them tomorrow, the unranked Liu/Zheng.

    I think we could do without the first MS on tv court. The MD on display is also so-so. The rest is promising. I wonder how LXR will play. It is a very touchy situation.

    Is it still possible for WSX to reach rank no 5 by 21July?

    If WYH wins against TTY tomorrow, can WYH drop to rank no 3 or 4 by 21 July?

    The two WS and WD matches are worth watching - Saina and May rivalry is as good as it gets. And it would be interesting to see if China find a solution to the Matsutomo/Takahashi problem ..... of course, not for Olympics but for future domination.

    let's see whether KKK/TBH able to beat the INA 4th pair Berry/Ryan again tonight, the MAS pair has previously beaten them last week INA open before losing to their fellow compatriots GVS/TWK who lost to that INA pair last night...

    Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi vs Bao Yixin/Chen Qingchen should be good.

    Saina vs RI would be another worth watching.

    Really like this Malaysian XD pair GO/CHAN.(and I'm not a fan of XD in general)The girl is so good at the net, very skillful, and GO has a very strong smash, very quick around the court. They won G1 quite comfortably.Hope they go further

    Heo Kwang Hee seems unfamiliar with Kidambi's game.

    Totally agree with you. I am also not a great fan of XD but a great fan of MD (LYD / YYS) of course. But then this Malaysian XD pair really caught me by surprise because they can really play very well. Look at how Goh Liu Ying good net play, skillful and strong smash really amazed me. Plus Chan Peng Soon is good too. He just got that powerful smash and attack. Really a joy to watch. But then I am always a great fan of Ko Sung Hyun / Kim Ha Na. Anyway congratulations to Chan / Goh for playing so well to win their XD match today.

    The umpire corrected a call on the far side against Sun Yu.
