    Kevin/Markus could be in top 10 (if they grab this SS) in just a little over a year of partnership. Very promising young MD talents for INA.

    Wow, surprised to see SN crush WYH so easily. What were the excuses given this time?

    And what are the excuses for LXR losing to her compatriot?

    Seriously, I actually think Sun Yu should be sent to Olympics. She has as good a chance to win Gold as any other China WS. And she'd be less studied than the others too.

    Liu Cheng/Zheng Siwei, also trounced. Looks like the younger INA MD pairs also doing better than their seniors here.

    And the Superseries title droughts for WYH and WSX continue.

    Liu Cheng is not the right partner for Zheng Siwei.

    I think the best MD performance by Zheng Siwei is when he playing with Li Junhui.

    I think LXR has to go to Olympics - she's the defending champion after all. Between WSX, WYH and SY, one could just roll the dice really. It doesn't really matter. All have equal chance of winning Gold. I think it will end up being who is the least likely to clash with the other in earlier rounds that will decide who goes?

    You are right. Zheng Siwei is a good player but he is not given a good partner.

    They are a exciting pair to watch, love them but quite a number of people hate them.

    There no way SY will replace either WYH or WSX to Rio no matter how well she play for the next few months, unless both WANG suffered long term injury.

    I'm surprised Gu Jun actually said that. Really, WSX's record against foreign players is better than WYH's ?

    If possible, based on current form, I'd rather take my chances with Sun Yu than WYH or WSX, in that order. Li Xuerui is a given, needless to say.

    It was following the incident with Tan/Goh, notice that all those posts from the Malay side. Maybe jealousy because their Tan/Goh not doing well recently.

    Even Nozomi Okuhara commented on Kevin's twitter that he's cute with a love mark. :)

    they hate them probably because of kevin antics on the court lol...

    and agree with you, such an exciting pair to watch....personally they're my favorite indonesian pair right now...can watch they play all day long.

    Based on the R2R Standing on 1st May, there's no way Sun Yu can be selected for Rio as she was ranked outside the top 8. Just wishful thinking.

    Chen Qingchen is amazing. She is a gift to china. Is she still junior? If so, what can i say. For her age, she is extremely talented.

    If I am not mistaken it is due to injury.
