    Great display by srikanth. If he is able to take the 3rd game with 21-10, what is the need to go for 3 games. Well done sri.

    Enjoyed both victories of Srikanth and Saina. It was a good day and I am quite happy. Hope it continues like this tomorrow.

    Liu Cheng/Bao Yixin justified their inclusion in place of Ma Jin/Xu Chen by ousting Natsir/Tantowi. Good job.

    Quite a few upsets and disappointments at the first day.
    The MD death group is only about the second place bt Ko/Shin and the Chinese.

    Sad, that Ina WD pair had to retire. They play a interesting game. Even though this match was already going on for so long. Hardly enjoyable :/

    KM couldn´t repeat his achievement of game 1.

    After live TV telecast ended, there's no working livestream.

    Akane is doing well against WYH, having taken G1, 21-16. An upset on the cards?

    As I expected, Akane Y is poised to upset WYH.

    Group B in WS has Tai TY and now Akane Y to mount a serious challenge to the rest for the championship.

    For Group A, Saina clearly takes pole position, the other one is Sung Ji Hyun for a place in the semifinals.

    The death group of MD, is open for more interesting scenarios, with the injury of MA.

    Do the indo-pair play the next rounds.. ? What actually happened to him.. ?

    Indonesia suffered two bitter blows as Greysia Polii/Nitya Krishinda Maheswari and Mohammad Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan exited the BWF Destination Dubai World Superseries Finals.

    Under BWFs’ General Competition Regulations (16.2.5), both teams will be unable to take further part in the tournament. The Regulation states: “If injury, illness, disqualification or other unavoidable hindrance prevents a player/pair completing all the pool matches, all the results of that player/pair shall be deleted. Retiring during a match shall be considered to be not completing all pool matches.”

    Very sad. INA MD and WD need to go home too early, I just check the order of play today, both pairs are not listed anymore. Even MF yesterday said if Maheswari can recover, she can play today, seems like the regulation is not yet well understood by many.

    I went to sleep as it was very late and the live TV telecast had ended after the MD match which saw Ahsan giving up due to his "back" injury.

    But as I've said, height is not everything.

    Being much taller, it does not guarantee that WYH will win over the short AY. There are other attributes to be considered.

    And in AY's case, it must be her speed and power that contributed to her success, apart from her technical skills which must be at least on par with WYH's. More importantly, the fierce but intangible determination and passion to beat top Chinese players must be her main goal.

    So it has again been proven that short players need not necessarily fear and succumb to tall players.
