    Quarters round up, and now we're down to just 2 courts

    SWH overcame SK, but the scoreline makes it look easier that it was for SWH - SK had been 5-15 down but threatened to take the game as it reached its conclusion. Probably a good fright for SWH to have.

    Ratchanok fell to Chen Yufei in what was a fair result. Ratchanok's playing simply lacked urgency

    Pusarla took out Sun Yu with ease, Sun Yu looking weary after her long tussle with a resurgent Beatrice Corrales the day before

    So it was Victor up against friend and rival Chou Tien Chen

    IMG_2666.JPG

    We were in for a long game. Victor received a warning for misconduct at the beginning of G2

    IMG_2664.JPG

    Game three, and things were tight. Would Victor choke or cope?

    IMG_2668.JPG

    He coped

    The story of how this...

    IMG_2678.JPG

    IMG_2679.JPG

    became this...

    IMG_2681.JPG

    before eventually becoming this...

    IMG_2683.JPG

    is probably one that Matsutomo and Takahashi would probably prefer to forget. Credit to them for not capitulating in G3 which many of us thought was inevitable. Expert and sensitive input from the Japan coaching after the G2 debacle.

    re-watched okuhara v. marin game 3...
    • carolina was definitely motivated
    • hell yeah she's fast
    • the pace of game 3 was unreal
    • but, like i've said before: okuhara, yamaguchi, tty & pvs have caught up to her in speed
    • ...and mental toughness
    • okuhara out played her in game 3 because she has more tools to switch the game plan and control the match

    Kamura and Sonoda continue their quest and seem to be incorporating more sublety as they go along, trouncing Madses Conrad and Kolding in two

    Crunch encounter between Carolina and Nozomi

    The victorious Adcocks were impressive today

    IMG_2696.JPG

    but, alas, Kirsty's campaign came to an end at the hands of Saina Nehwal whose cunning and experience were just a little bit too much for Kirsty this time.

    Till tomorrow,

    I don't see any mention of Nozomi's win in BWF facebook page.

    What on earth are they doing??

    I am sad Boe and Moe lost.
    I want to see them winning the title.
    They aren't young anymore.
    Maybe the late match affected them.

    Yeah so?? And what is so celebrate worthy about ensuring a bronze when you have done it multiple times before??
    She will celebrate in final if she reaches there and wins after even such a match.
    Expect her to stay stoic if the SF is as lopsided as this.

    Because at the end of the bronzes and silvers are crap metals that deserve being flushed down the loo. No one needs a memento of their losses.

    Because they care for the eardrums of their viewers.

    She is very pragmatic about her training and game. You can see from all the interviews she doesn't lose her head in fervour. There is a job to do and she wants to get it done. No celebrating beforehand. Professionalism, righ?

    Pretty sure if it were a tough 3game win in R1 with multiple deuces that required her to summon passion we would have seen fist bumps in the end and hugs.
    The quality of the game today simply didnt deserve any emotion.
    Given how heavily Sun Yu was strapped and how nervous her strokes were towards the beginning and the end, this match didnt deserve any celebration.

    Having said that there will be celebrations even after such or more mundane matches in the final, because that represents a year of hard work for an ex champ and a lifetime of sacrifices for a 1st time champ.

    Also had this been Sindhu's 1st medal there would have been OTT celebrations. None were warranted yesterday.

    I am regularly missing the 2nd half due to sleep post Monday. Hope I manage to stay up today and tomorrow.
