    I see England are sending out some different doubles combinations. Probably uplifted by the surprise bronze medal of the mens doubles at the Olympics. I am a little surprised not more of them doubled up playing mixed and mens doubles for the experience.


    No sign of the Adcocks yet after a disappointing Olympic campaign.

    Good to see both Chen Long and Lee CW playing in this tournament, their first after Rio'16.

    Hope Chen Long is not too heady and still in cloud nine at the start of the tournament. He is no longer just one of the top hunters but the hunted now.

    Correction, based on the latest M & Q report dated 26th Aug, Chen Long has witthdrawn !

    Chen Long, Li Xuerui, Saina Nehwal, Wang Shixian, Maheswari/Polii, Ahmad/Natsir have withdrawn.

    Three-time Olympic silver medalist Lee Chong Wei will be heavy favourite to eye 6th Japan Open title, he's slated to meet Tommy Sugiarto at quarterfinal and either Tian Houwei or the resurgent Srikanth Kidambi in last four. At bottom-half of draw, second seed Viktor Axelsen has possibility to meet his senior compatriot Jan O Jorgensen in semifinal, another two seeded players join them here, Son Wan Ho and Chou Tien Chen.

    A mouth-watering Rio Olympic final rematch, Carolina Marin v P.V. Sindhu may happen in last eight, former World Champion Ratchanok Intanon is expected to face China young gun He Bingjiao for quarterfinal scenario. Both Sun Yu and Tai Tzu Ying are grouped with two home favourites, defending champion Nozomi Okuhara and 2013 Winner Akane Yamaguchi at lower half of draw.

    Unfortunately, Xue Song and Shi Yuqi have to square off at the qualies. Qiao Bin, Huang Yuxiang too have to play the qualies.

    Lee SoHee playing with Shin SeungChan again?

    I was just starting to like Jung KyungEun (who I always thought was a mediocre player with other partners).

    Perhaps.
    Maybe we can see how Lee SoHee has developed. I think she's been strugling with Chang YeNa.

    i'm not sure who the weaker player is in that pairing but it doesn't seem to work or get good results. chang ye na could retire? otherwise she could be like ma jin and be used to bring up younger players? i don't see her paired with jung kyung eun again

    Well, personally I think their results are pretty good, but I can't help but feel Lee SoHee has a whole bunch of talent she still needs to unlock, and Chang YeNa hasn't been able to help her progress (at least visibly).

    The result of google translate from which original language ? Hilarious. I suspect it's Chinese.
