    CP not a patient player, too eager to finish off the rally

    Again CP loses the deuce, 20-22. Frankly , not a convincing win by Saina. I have a feeling Chen Yufei would've beaten her.

    Chochuwong played really well! Saina Nehwal had to dig deep and use her experience!

    Chochuwong Pornpawee's 19th birthday today, so says the commentator. She's a bright prospect from Thailand.

    Saina Nehwal needed this win. A good mental boost. She is still not at her best but is getting better with each match. She will be dangerous after she regains her fitness!

    Yep,I just saw the replay how Lee Hyun Il accidentally hurt himself with his racquet as he backed off to retrieve a shot past him. Hope he didn't damage his left eye, there's blood, probably oozing from a cut beneath the eye to the side, it seems. As the close-up view didn't zero in on his face,I can't tell whether it's his eye that's bleeding or there's a cut near his left eye.

    It certainly hurt him enough to concede the match. Hope it's not serious, that it's just a minor cut on his face that heals in a few days. Get well soon.

    Pornpawee Chochuwong delivered difficult times and pushed Saina Nehwal moved corner to corner but the experienced former world number one stayed calm and took momentum in crucial time twice, first game to save game point 19-20 and second game when Chochuwong saved four match point to force deuce, the identical scoreline close the final day, 22-20. A promising display by birthday girl Chochuwong and proves Thailand has no lack of talented player in WS department.

    A tragic ending for men's singles finale, Angus Ng KL topped the podium after Lee Hyun Il retired at 9-10 third game when the Korean tried to save the shuttlecock then hurt his left eye, hopefully it's not serious injury. A home Superseries crown late last year certainly had boosted Ng KL self confidence to raise his standard of play and he made good start of 2017 season.

    Doubles category were straight-forward match where Thai youngsters Kititharakul/Prajongjai finally nailed GP Gold title after lost in two previous attempt. Host Malaysia pocketed 1 title through the well-improved Tan KM/Lai PJ, one step better than last year runner-up. Indonesia clinch MD crown through new combination, Angriawan/Hardianto who ended local hopefuls gallant run despite made nervous start at first game. Goh/Izzuddin failed to maintain their big margin leading, lost opening game narrowly, 19-21 then the impact continued in second set.
