    2011 Swiss Open GPG: Sung Ji Hyun arrived at the Finals

    .
    Congratulations to Sung Ji Hyun !!! :):):)

    SJH arrived at the Finals of the 2011 Swiss Open GPG although not seeded again.

    However, she was defeated by the No.2 Seed, Saina Newhal (our current World No.4), 13-21, 14-21 in 42 minutes.

    http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/s...85F683-15A3-4E8B-8FBF-EF71992BF553&d=20110320

    After this result, I think SJH has moved into our World Top 16.

    2011 Chinese Taipei Open GP Gold: Sung Ji Hyun [4] made it to Semi-Finals

    .
    At the 2011 Chinese Taipei Open GP Gold, Sung Ji Hyun [4] made it to Semi-Finals, to be played tomorrow, Saturday 10-September.

    http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/sport/draw.aspx?id=26503535-E5EE-4868-9565-813F9F1EE73D&draw=3

    Her Semi-Finals match will be a tough one (IMHO).

    Her opponent Pai Hsiao Ma is in top form. She (Pai Hsiao Ma) has already eliminated 2 top seeds in earlier rounds (Cheng Shao Chieh [1] in Round 2, and Yip Pui Yin [5] at the Quarter-Finals)

    Good Luck to Sung Ji Hyun. :):):)

    Sung Ji Hyun [4] has made it to the Finals.

    Congratulations to Sung Ji Hyun !!! :):):)

    She defeated Pai Hsiao Ma 21-09, 21-18 in 41 minutes.

    http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/sport/draw.aspx?id=26503535-E5EE-4868-9565-813F9F1EE73D&draw=3

    At the Finals today (Sunday 11-Sep), Sung Ji Hyun [4] will be facing Ratchanok Inthanon [3].

    IMHO, Ratchanok Inthanon will be very difficult for Sung Ji Hyun to defeat.

    Talent-wise, I honestly don't think she's as good as Rat. Rat made a lot of mistakes, as she is prone to at this stage of her career. The (slightly) more experienced Sung took advantage and swept home.

    You never feel Sung nor BaeYJ are good enough to threaten the Chinese team at the moment whereas with a player like Rat, there is always a chance for an upset. Even a Chinese coach (can't remember which one) pointed out how dangerous Rat can be.

    I think Ratchanok is one of the players who has trouble with Sung's style. She beat Sung once but hasn't taken a game the other times. She has been troubling the Chinese players more. I won't deny the potential. Obviously, at only 16, Ratchanok's future looks bright, but that doesn't take away from Sung Ji Hyun. She has beaten Jiang Yanjiao, Wang Lin, and Wang Xin this year and was very close to taking out Wang Yihan. Liu Xin is the only Chinese player to beat her this year in straight games. She's coming into her own at age 20 and that's not a bad accomplishment. Lots of players still lack consistency or fitness or confidence at that stage in their career so we'll just have to wait and see.

    I must admit Sung has Rat's number. She never looks comfortable against Sung.

    Just my opinion but if you ask any Chinese coach who they would prefer to avoid, I'm pretty sure they would say Rat.

    At only 16, Ratchanok is still lacking in confidence

    IMHO, at only 16, Ratchanok is still lacking in confidence.

    Just before the match, she was telling everyone how nervous she was. She, through facebook, said: "Wish God bless me amen". :):):)

    Let's see if Sung Ji Hyun can be very close to Wang Yihan's score again

    .
    I just found out that Sung Ji Hyun will be facing Wang Yihan [1] at the coming 2011 China Masters (in Round 1);

    http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/sport/draw.aspx?id=7D2D1C4C-AB94-414D-8A62-D2138D6E6B55&draw=4

    Let's see if Sung Ji Hyun can be very close to Wang Yihan's score again.
