    OMG, Shizuka Uchida is a lawn mower!
    She is just flattening out all her opponents, lol.
    Nozomi has better play well to reach the final.

    Sigh...Jenna Gozali/Komala Dewi failed to beat the Japanese pair Yonemoto Koharu/Yuriko Miki, despite taking the first-set 22-20. The Japanese fought back to win the second and decider sets 21-12, 21-17.

    Some observations from today's line-judging:
    - The shuttles were fast for the MS between A Abat & Chou T S - the officials had to tip every fourth feather although I don't see that done for subsequent matches;
    - Coaches are just encouraging their players in between points ("You can do it", "That's it", "One point at a time", etc)

    The boys linejudges were all gaga over Nozomi, asking her for pictures when she was warming up and arguing over being linejudges for her match. Nozomi was very accommodating with requests for pictures. The MS match between Henri Hurskainen and Yu Hsien Lin went into the third game causing Michelle Li and Sayaka Takahashi to wait an extra 15-20 minutes after they had warmed up and waiting to get on court.

    The WD semi-final match between the two Japanese teams each have their own coaches mainly because one is sponsored by Unisys and the other by Panasonic. In the WS match between Nozomi and Shizuka, there was no coach as they are both sponsored by the same company.

    It seems to me some of the players are exhausted and fatigue from their previous day matches as they seems to run out of steam towards the latter part of the match.

    Anyone knows what time (Canada) the 1st Final match starts tomorrow?
    And, the sequence of the Final matches played, if available?

    The Tournament Software still has not updated the Final Day matches . . . even thought the semi-final finished about 10 hours ago.

    Yes, shouldn't have doubted her ability to beat Shizuka, even when her opponent has been playing very well. Nozomi is very aggressive when it comes to scoring points.

    LOL, the pairings are still not out.
    So it may be true that there is a problem arranging the order.
    The Japanese players are so intertwined with each other, having 4 players playing 2 matches each, that the knot cannot be untangled.
    It is likely that the doubles events will be the first, third and fifth matches, with the MS and WS events being slotted in between. And 2 of the 4 players will be fortunate enough to play in the first and fifth matches. Perhaps they should let the female players have more rest.
    It is a good thing that no one is playing in both the singles and doubles events to complicate matters.

    Nozomi must be releasing all her pent-up frustrations for losing the Asian Junior title last week.
