    BZ still the fav, in every way, even rankings now.
    And her recent won over PVS gives an her an extra edge, however SN is fiesty and won't give away easily. Let's just hope she plays in the first place

    i'm looking forward to watching korea's wd, md & xd players. consider it a preview of 2020 and it's looking like a damn good foundation with a lot of depth.

    same goes for japan in ws, wd, ms & md.

    I hope not, besides her IG posts look all lovely, I think she's just giving some time to her family. As Federer said "he has life after tennis too" so does she.
    Hope she's training well though, and get her optimum fitness level back.
    She did defeated SJH and RI, so she's surely on her way back.

    Let's see how Ruthvika fairs up against Aya Ohori this time, it's R1 ,so both of 'em have fresh legs and are more familiar to eachother after last week's battle.
    Also, Rituparna has Rachel Honderich to take care of.

    Actually, only the MD Final outcome surprised me. Kento Momota losing to Kanta Tsuneyama at this time not totally unexpected.

    In my opinion,Kanta, just like Wang Tzu Wei, is another young, hard-hitting player, relying mostly on raw speed and power, playing a very physical game, such that the less fit and/or much older players tend to suffer at their hands.

    Ruthvika again went down to Aya Ohori in three sets, her stamina is still a suspect.
    PK took LHIl down , that's some improvement.
    Sikki/Pjc disappointed yet again

    3rd game incident... @ 16-16 opponents served short, umpire called it in. It was very obviously short. That rattled sikki/pjc and they pretty much caved in. Bummer because even though the games were close they were playing pretty good, with a good rhythm.

    Gotta learn to shake off those bad calls right away.

    Kazumasa Sakai's second defeat in two weeks to players we'd expect him to beat.

    What I am saying is they gotta learn to play like favorites when they are the favourites. I mean this isn't their first flop against the English Pairs, well below their rankings.
    Let's say if they play it by their calibre which should by now justify their rankings, should've given them day night cushion and the bad call wouldn't be such a heartbreak.
    It's time they start believing in themselves

    That's well expected. Aside from the lucky draw from INA SSP, he had not played well. He was awfully inconsistent.
