    The new World Junior Champ TKS-MHC defeated Ullin-Didit in straight sets...

    So, thus far today:
    KOR - INA 1-0
    TPE - INA 2-0
    MAS - INA 3-5
    ;)
    Total: Others - INA: 6-5 ...with 9.5 more matches involving INA players to go... :p

    Final tally for yesterday:
    KOR - INA: 1-0
    SIN - INA: 0-1
    TPE - INA: 3-0 :eek:
    MAS - INA: 7-9 (close one) :D

    I am not considering the match between Harmono Yuwono/Kosuke Yasamura vs Goh Wei Shern/Lin Woon Fui [2]

    Overall, 10 INA pairs/players advance to R16, while 11 lost :eek:

    I counted 9 for INA:
    3 from MS
    3 from WS
    2 from XD
    1 from MD

    and 7 (stretch that to 8) for MAS:
    1 from XD
    1 from WS
    1 from MS
    1 from WD
    3 from MD (4 if you count the last match)

    Out of 3 XD pairs, INA manages to place 1 in the QF: Rizky Yanu Kresnayadi/Yayu Rahayu.

    5 WS matches either being played/to be played shortly, I think Bellaetrix Manuputty and perhaps Ana Rovita & Febby Angguni could qualify to QF. Tieke Ariedaningrum and Rischa Meisiani should be inferior to their Thai and Korean opponents. Let's see.

    Tieke should win against Ratchanok Inthanon

    Ratchanok Inthanon is U-16 Asia winner (without CHN participant) this year
    in final she defeated Tiara Rosalia 19-21, 21-14, 21-16

    I might have miscounted... :p Ha ha, isn't it funny... if there are so many players competing, we just see them as 'statistics'... :p

    Hehe....u started on the statistics count...and I just followed that up :p Normally, I wouldn't have bothered though ;)

    But, it's comforting to see our junior (and inexperienced players compared to MAS) can edge out some good results :D

    I think Gepeng and Adit shall win today. Bandar will put up a good fight against Kuan Beng Hong, but only has a 48% chance of winning...

    As expected, Rischa Meisiani (Djarum player I reckon?) lost to Kim Moon Hi....but....she gave an all-out performance in stretching the fourth-seed to 3-sets, losing "only" 19-21 in the rubber. Good sign.

    Meanwhile, Ana Rovita also progresses to QF, beating another MAS opponent in straight-sets :D

    Score is tied at 1-1 between MAS and INA today; with 4 more matches later. I expect Rizky/Albert and Bella to win later. Meanwhile, Bandar and Hendra/Trikusuma should lose to Kuan Beng Hong [2] and the top-seed in MD (Gan Teik Chai/Ong Jian Guo).

    Rischa is quite good looking... :p White skin, cute smile, playful eyes... ;) She will still play as an Under-19 next year... Ana Rovita was crowned National Under-19 champion last week... A bit too short in posture, but she is an overachiever in terms of fighting spirit and stamina... ;) Febby Angguni also progressed to the next round.

    Ok now we wait for Tike and Belleatrix... ;)

    Again, as I expect, Febby Angguni progresses to QF but not after a long 3-sets battle against Liu I-Chun. She will face a tough test against Kim Moon Hi tomorrow.

    Look's like Djarum again has managed to train a good stable crop of young WS players??? Hmm.....

    Honestly, I haven't heard of their names before this week :eek:...ok...maybe Ana Rovita (last weekend), but, I wasn't really paying attention to the WS result :p

    Rischa (born 1992) was member of INA U-16 in Asia U-16 last year, so 2 she can play U-19 for 2 years again.
    In Kejurnas she lost to seeded-1 Mazziyah Nadhir in tough 3 sets Quarter Final.
