    What about Intanon Ratchanok who was 3 times WJC and already a world class player during her time? The same goes for Akane Yamaguchi when she was a JPN Open SS titlist, Goh Jin Wei , a (twice?) GP winner, and Busanan Ongbumrungpan, a WR 15 (in Jan 2013) player at that time, iirc.

    Besides, Chen Yufei has never won any international title and she's only ranked 37 atm.

    Why was Sun Feixiang awarded a yellow card just now ?

    This boy is well-built, WR271, 18 years old , born 15th May 1998.

    Mariska started off strongly, then it became a see-saw battle, in the end Chen Yufei narrowly snatched G1 after some deuce exchanges, 25-23.

    Mariska is a young up-and-coming INA WS player to watch.

    Congrats Chen Yufei.
    She looks like Ding Ning (ping pong player) to me.

    Finally in G2 was Chen Yufei able to assert her authority and broke down Mariska's resistance for a 21-14 victory. Still, Mariska showed a lot of promise.

    I suspect Chen Yufei has to work harder on her fitness and stamina which was a concern early on in her young career as she once admitted.

    At this stage, it'd be better if KOR Kim Ga Eun didn't withdraw yesterday so that CYF gets to play another tough opponent and a chance to hone her skills and gain more experience.

    A clean sweep for CHN juniors. Impressive as the AJC is as strong as the WJC considering most of the best juniors are in Asia.

    Even so, I won't say CHN dominates as in WS there are several juniors at about the same level, Chen Yufei, Gregoria Mariska, Goh Jin Wei, Chochuwong Pornpawee, Natsuki Nidaira, Kim Ga Eun, and perhaps one or two more.

    In MS also there are a few who can beat each other, namely , Sun Feixiang, Lee Chia Hao, Lakshya Sen, Koki Watanabe, Kantaphon Wancharoen, and maybe one or two more. Apparently,in this tournament Sun Feixiang stands out as he cleared all opposition in two straight sets.

    I have a feeling the 18-year-old Du Yue, double gold winner in XD and WD here, may be another Chen Qingchen.

    Oh, I see. I guess the young chap was too eager to win, all fired up and got carried away. Hope that yellow card would help him learn to rein himself in, part of growing up. On the other hand, I noticed he has a very positive and winning attitude, in situations when he was trailing quite a bit behind which happened in at least three matches, he was able to fight his way back to victory. That's how he scored straight-set wins in every one of his matches.

    At the end of his title match with Lee Chia Hao, when Sun Feixiang took off his shirt in jubilation, I could see his athletic body, in this regard he's better than his two slightly older fellow teammates, Shi Yuqi and Lin Guipu. Let's see if the 18-year-old SFX can surpass his peers in the near future.

    Just found the video on youtube but incomplete with breaks


    Not bad, SFX has got a good attack, a crisp smash, and a sound defence, diving all over the place. Way to go.

    Lakshya Sen is the youngest of all the MS players. He is 14 years old , reaching Semifinals is remarkable.

    His D.O.B is 16-8-2001

    Gregoria Mariska got some ankle injury yesterday in SF when she defeated Gao Fangjie.
    Today, she forced himself in G1 until her ankle got swollen. She does her best already, but i think it's better to not forced herself too hard. Her future is still long, better rest when having such an injury.

    Congrats to China, I really like their MD, very powerful and deceptive.
    Meanwhile, I kinda disappointed to Chaiwan Pattarasuda. After becoming Champion of Asia U15 and U17, I expect her to make some noise in U19. Still, I believe, she is a future champion. The problem is, she is quite tiny. In WJC, I hope Chaiwan and Kunlavut Vittidsarn from Thai can perform and surprise everyone with their special talent.

    For Indonesia, Currently, we dont have good talent for BS class 1998/1999/2000. But plenty of special talent for class 2001/02/03. Meanwhile, Chico Aura has a good weapon in his smash. He could be a late bloomer if he works really hard. Some National Team coach believes that Chico has the weapon needed to get into a top world player. Having seen him play several times, I dont believe on what coaches say though :D

    I notice some upcoming talents to be inserted in Pelatnas (National Team), Rinov, Andika, Apriani, Jauza Fadilla Sugiarto (daughter of Icuk Sugiarto) and Muhammad Fachrikar.

    What a pity we didn't get a sponsor for live streaming. This is the most important junior tournament for Asia and deserves better exposure. They hope to be future champions. Either BWF or ABC should take a bold step in this direction and bring about livestreaming from the first round. There are many opportunities for advertising as it will be supported by young as well as their parents and supporters.

    Another clean-sweep by Chinese Juniors in Asian meet to repeat last year successful. He Jiting/Du Yue were forced to work extra hard before prevailed against their Korean opponent Kim Won Ho/Lee Yu Rim while Chen Yufei claimed the title after experienced gruelling first game but controlled second game to defeat Indonesian promising talent Gregoria Mariska. Sun Feixiang is unstoppable along this individual event, disposed all his opponent convincingly.

    Were you there or can you quote a reliable source for your information regarding Mariska's ankle injury? I mean, if her ankle is hurt, she would've lost to Gao Fangjie who is no pushover, let alone Chen Yufei whom I believe not even Li Xuerui can beat her if she had ankle injury.

    Goh Jin Wei had some leg cramp and lost to Kim Ga Eun who, assuming she sustained some injury, conceded a walkover, didn't even want to try knowing how strong Chen Yufei is.

    Yeah, agree, INA has many good young talents , esp in MS and WS , besides Mariska who's a surprise package here, Hana Ramadhini, Firtriani Fitriani, and another one whose name slips off my mind.

    I also managed to watch part of Sun Feixiang's game against a KOR player on youtube. SFX is very promising indeed.
