    A silence week before blockbuster competitions resume
    [FONT=&quot]
    After back to back Superseries extravaganza in Odense & Paris, badminton intensity slows down to modest atmosphere in [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Saarbrücken as most elite players stay home to prepare last two top-tier tournaments in China and Hong Kong next month. Only Chou Tien Chen will defend the title here as almost all Chinese shuttlers skip this event except Tang Yuanting/Yu Yang.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Top two seeded in this GP Gold, TPE star Chou TC and Indonesian Tommy Sugiarto will be the favourite to bag top prize alongside with home favourite Marc Zwiebler who has been absent in last two Superseries after he won Prague Int.Challenge last month. Several regular Superseries participants also attend this GP Gold, Vittinghus, Ouseph, Sasaki, Ueda, Vincent Wong WK, current and former Thailand #1, Tanongsak and Boonsak Ponsana as well.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Reigning world champion Carolina Marin pulled out after she won maiden French Open title couple of days ago but it's still interesting to watch some badminton talents in this category. Ratchanok Intanon, Japanese two young sensations, Nozomi Okuhara-Akane Yamaguchi also Intanon compatriots Porntip and Busanan, recent World Championships bronze medalist Lindaweni Fanetri will create excitement for badminton fans.

    Recent French Open beaten finalist, Conrad/Kolding is top-seeded here and barring any upsets should meet towering Russian Ivanov/Sozonov in last round. Two Japanese combinations Kamura/Sonoda and Hashimoto/Hirata also Malaysian #1 Goh VS/Tan WK will pose darkhorse to thwart the final scenario. TPE underdog Chen HL/Wang CL who dumped former world champion Ko SH/Shin BC last week may spring first round upset against 8th seed Ellis/Langridge.

    Former IND SS winner Tang YT/Yu Y is strong fave to show their capability here as none of their arch-rival coming to Germany. This pair portrayed vital role at Sudirman Cup semifinal to beat INA Maheswari/Polii in rubber games. The Netherland top-seed Muskens/Piek has withdrawn, leaving second seed Gutta/Ponnapa, Vivian Hoo/Woon KW and Jakarta WC bronze medalist Fukuman/Yonao are main opponent to give the Chinese good fighting in this tournament.

    Jordan/Susanto may hope to redeem their FRA SS painful losing to clinch title on Sunday, they should be wary to local star Fuch/Michels and the comeback Polish XD, Mateusiak/Zieba before set up a final scenario with English top-ranked Mr. and Mrs.Adcock in last round. At top-half of draw, we'll see potential underdog Fukuman/Sonoda who shocked INA #1 Ahmad/Natsir last week also NED pair Arends/Piek who will up against INA youngster Subaktiar/Widjaja at R/32.

    Day-1 tournament will stage qualification round (12.40pm local time) and R/64 Men's Singles (04.00pm, 4 courts) => https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/...24B11B-7C9E-450D-84D5-48D8A5105EF5&d=20151027

    Hopefully our national champion BSP finally breaks through internationally here. He has been the most consistent player in the national circuit the past few seasons and deserves a lot more than just being the answer to a trivia question ( Taufik's last opponent) internationally.

    I remember at the Bitburger last year, Sun Yu beat the newly-minted WC Carolina Marin in the semifinals before clinching the title from her young teammate He Bingjiao in the final.

    Just checked the schedule for today and realised that there will be 4 exciting MS matches involving Hsu Jen Hao, Chou Tien Chen, Wang Tzu Wei and Tommy Sugiarto. Tommy Sugiarto and Chou Tien Chen would be the hot favourites to win the gold medals this time.

    Day 2 will stage R/32 of 4 discipline (10.00am local time, 4 courts) except XD which scheduled on tomorrow : https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/sport/matches.aspx?id=7424B11B-7C9E-450D-84D5-48D8A5105EF5

    Defending champion needed extra effort to pass opening test yesterday to overcome home player Roovers, 21-19 / 21-19, he should no problem to progress into last sixteen and will take on most likely Indonesian Rumbaka tomorrow. Chou's younger compatriot Wang TZ has Thailand veteran Boonsak Ponsana, an intriguing encounter also Indian Praneeth who will oppose Tedjono as well for R/16 place.

    Fanetri should pass preliminary rounds and secure last eight berth, thanks to Marin withdrawal. Two Danish promising WS, Kjaersfeldt and Madsen have challenging opponent, English Chapman and Scottish Gilmour respectively also Japanese rising star Yamaguchi who meets tricky TPE player Pai YP at first round.

    This tourney is his real test!!! If he somehow rise to the occasion surprising me and many others which is highly unlikely to happen I will join your hands and support him the way you do... Certainly he was a bright youngster but alas he hasn't clear the bars he set for himself atleast for now.. Hope for the best

    Decided to support my idols so I woke up early in the wee morning hours before daylight to watch the matches live. then what a shock I got. First of all Chou Tien Chen lost the first set to maxime moreels 14-21 before winning the second and third set. Then sho SASAKI lost to Henri hurskainen in an embarrassing manner 16-21 21-5 15-21. Oh no. Thus the lost of sho SASAKI created an upset today.

    And the last match for early wee morning hours today ended with a win to my idol Tommy Sugiarto 21-9 21-15 over Kim Bruun too. Tommy must have felt so tired as it is already 7 am now Asia timing.

    Day-3 tournament will kick off on 11.00am local time (4 courts), XD will play two rounds (R/32 & R/16) today => https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/...24B11B-7C9E-450D-84D5-48D8A5105EF5&d=20151029

    Two Japanese MS have been shown exit door by their European opponent, Ueda & Sasaki downed to Danish Persson and Swede Hurskainen respectively. Another surprise also happened to Thai veteran Ponsana who lost to TPE promising talent Wang TW. This 2013 WJC silver medalist will face second seed Sugiarto at R/16. A sluggish performance by defending champion Chou TC at two previous rounds, he has tough test to book quarterfinal berth, it'll be end of road here if the top-seed is still struggling to bring back his best against Rumbaka today. Home favourite Zwiebler is predicted to fight hard against Chong WF.

    Thai WS players are favoured to progress also two Japanese starlets as well, Yamaguchi and Okuhara have no serious threat to advance into next round. Possible tight contests will happen between Gilmour v Gavnholt, Kajersfeldt v Corrales, Porntip v Febe. A big upset was created yesterday, the unheralded Danish qualifier, Natalia Koch Rohde stunned Lindaweni Fanetri, bronze medalist of recent WC.

    China sole representative and strong favourite, Tang YT/Yu Y have challenging path to secure semifinal slot as they meet Fukuman/Yonao who produced successful story in Jakarta WC last August and if they pass the Japanese, the on fire Bulgarian WD Stoeva sisters most likely will be their next hurdle.

    If National Champion beats the multiple times English Champion today, that should bode well for his future. Jai ho!

    Red Card Alert! Chris L' Anguish" drew umpire's attention by speaking to the line judge after a marginal shuttle line call. A yellow card awarded right away. On the next point, Chris found another opportunity, but out of no reason, to speak to the line judge again and umpire reacted by gifting the point to their opponent. Chris later awarded a pass of handshake to the umpire at the end of the match. Anyone hear what Chris actually said on court? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQ0rouT4Fr0

    Anyway thanks for your information and I didn't have the opportunity to watch that match live thus I didn't know what has happened. Thankful that you have mentioned it. Later I will do some research and find out more about this incident.

    But then to be honest with you it is actually against the rule to speak to the line judges. I wonder who gave him the idea to do so. Pretty interesting incident. First time that I have ever heard of players speaking to line judges during tournament time.

    Well the match for today has started and the match St court 3 ended pretty fast within 20minytes with Chan Peng Soon / Goh Liu Ying winning the match 21-11 21-10.

    Another match at court 2 has also ended with the win over Keigo Sonada / Naoko Fukuman who won their match within 22 minutes 21-13 21-9. What a fast match.

    And both matches have ended just when the match at court 1 and 4 was about to start. Wow so fast. The matches at court 4 and 1 is more balanced up with tough fight for both pairs.

    The matches for today started off with XD first as all the XD players will need to play their second round match on the same day later. Hope the players won't be too tired and have stamina to play later on.

    Just checked the results plus schedule and found out that the timing is once again not user friendly to Asia viewer like me. In order to watch the matches played by my idols I have to stay up from 1 - 6 am again as those matches will be played around that timing at my place. Oh no. Sometimes I just wish that the retiming of the tournament is more suitable for Asia viewers like me to watch it live too. Too bad.

    The last 2 SS/SSP events are in Asia. I believe some others people will complain about the time.
