    21-6! I had been expecting Nozomi to be giving some diplomatic points, especially to a fellow countryman in an international tournament. But she must be really pumped up after that disappointingly close loss to Sindhu in the AJC final last week.

    last week at the US Open, Misaki Matsutomo played with Kenichi Hayakawa. This week she is playing with a weaker partner in Hiroyuki Saeki and they are about to lose the 1st game to the Austrian pair quite easily

    Joycelyn Ko came back from 11-16 in the rubber to win the match against the 4th seeded Michelle Chan Ky 19-21 21-16 21-18 in just under an hr.
    She is also the 1st Canadian to beat another opponent from a different country

    Yes! Good fighting effort by Joycelyn. She's only got Nozomi in the QF ;)

    Michelle Li squeaks through by the skin of her teeth 23-21 in the rubber. She had a massive 16-6 lead but frittered it away and faced 2 match points before hauling herself off the canvas to pip the Japanese girl at the line.

    Jocelyn _was_ the 1st Canadian to beat a non-Canadian, but that was in only the 8th scheduled match against Sarada Jasti on day 1. Since then there have been others.

    Looking at the QF schedule, I'd say 2 or at most 3 Canadians will survive, and even that's a tough ask. Ng/Gao stand the best chance to make it through.

    Michelle Li evens up at 19-19 but ZBW leads again 20-19, and takes G2 21-19. To the rubber
