    QUARTERFINAL ORDER OF PLAY (03.30pm local time) => https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/...030112-393D-4D7C-A368-7BAC59A490EE&d=20161021

    *Match Highlights :
    - Vincent Wong Wing Ki (HKG) v Lee Hyun Il (KOR)
    - Carolina Marin (ESP) v Sun Yu (CHN)
    - Tai Tzu Ying (TPE) v Sung Ji Hyun (KOR)
    - Li JH/Liu YC (CHN) v Goh VS/Tan WK (MAS)
    - Ivanov/Sozonov (RUS) v Boe/Mogensen (DEN)
    - Pedersen/Juhl (DEN) v Jung KE/Shin SC (KOR)
    - Ko SH/Kim HN (KOR) v Fischer/Pedersen (DEN)
    - Zheng SW/Chen QC (CHN) v Jordan/Susanto (INA)

    Age seems not a big obstacle for the evergreen Lee Hyun Il who disappointed hometown boy and Rio bronze medalist Viktor Axelsen last night. The left-handed stayed calm and composed despite losing first set tamely, 7-21 but then Lee flexed his muscles to frustrate Axelsen in next two games. Another Korean MS who cruises into last eight is Son Wan Ho who brought his best to topple German fighter Marc Zwiebler, the well-determined Son will take on Chinese new star, Shi Yuqi. On top-half of draw, highly favourite Lee Chong Wei should have no serious trouble to pass Brice Leverdez, the Frenchman defeated Chou Tien Chen once again after four previous meeting victories against the Taiwanese number one. One more seeded players tumbled at last sixteen, the lacklustre Tian Houwei lost staright-sets to the on-fire Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk. Recent THA GP Gold winner will find local promising teen, the qualifier Anders Antonsen to hunt semifinal spot.

    Japan WS are doing well so far, a stunning outcome created by Sayaka Sato who downed Rio silver medalist P.V. Sindhu in close contest that spent 65 minutes of play. It's good prospect for Sato to book semifinal berth against Hong Kong's Cheung Ngan Yi. All Japanese affairs once again will pit Nozomi Okuhara v Akane Yamaguchi. Carolina Marin looks struggling in this tournament, defeated Korean inexperienced player Kim Na Young narrowly, next Sun Yu will be her opponent. It's good opportunity for the tall Chinese to beat the Olympic Champion who's not in good shape here. The remaining last eight tie will see Sung Ji Hyun meets familiar foe, Tai Tzu Ying.

    Two intriguing MD quarterfinal clashes at bottom of draw, the sensational Chinese youngsters Li JH/Liu YC will take on Malaysian duo Goh VS/Tan WK, they met three weeks ago in KOR Superseries semifinal. Reigning All England Champion Ivanov/Sozonov have tough test to bag semifinal ticket, home hero Boe/Mogensen. Current Indonesia leading pairs, Gideon/Sukamuljo are favoured to eliminate Thai pair Isara/Phuangphuapet while Pratama/Suwardi should be extra wary to face Japanese darkhorse Kamura/Sonoda.

    A big match of WD category will witness Rio OG rematch between silver medalists Pedersen/Juhl v bronze medalists Jung KE/Shin SC, both pairs won a title each post Rio Olympics in Japan and Korea respectively. Top-seed Matsutomo/Takahashi step up comfortably to last eight and find their compatriots Fukuman/Yonao today. China who's struggling to produce formidable WD once again will rely on Luo Ying/Luo Yu in this tournament, they will see the in-form Thai pair Supajirakul/Taerattanachai who diposed higher-ranked Korean opponent Chang/Lee yesterday. The inspiring Bulgarian pair, Stoeva sisters will up against Indonesian hopeful Maheswari/Polii.

    Huge upset happened in mixed doubles second round when the Olympic Champion Ahmad/Natsir suffered unexpected defeat to the unranked Chinese pair, Wang Yilu/Huang Dongping. Another gruelling match also saw Fischer/Pedersen had stern test to beat the underdog Thai pair Isara/Amitrapai. The Danish finest will set up a clash with world number one Ko SH/Kim HN, this tie should be a tight battle. China dominates XD quarterfinal with four representatives, one semifinal ticket has been guaranteed. The rising combination, Zheng SW/Chen QC will challenge third seed Jordan/Susanto while fresh partnerships Li JH/Bao YX get 4th seed, The Adcocks.

    Korean assassin Lee Hyun Il takes down Danish beauty Viktor Axelsen. If only Lin Dan was as talented as Grandpa Hyun Il.

    Grandpa is just 3 or 4 years elder than LCW and Lindan, that qualifies both of them to be grandpa themselves.:);)

    3 or 4 years is centuries in badminton terms... specially past 30. But LHI is specialist of retirement-come back-retirement scheme, which LD can study...

    let's see whether MAS GVS/TWK able to seek revenge for the defeat by CHN Li JH/Liu YC few weeks ago, or CHN pair will beat the MAS pair again to continue their good performance after the Olympic season...

    With the new 11-point scoring system, I think Lee HI can extend his career just a bit longer.

    But can he last till Tokyo 2020?

    Lin Dan's problem is absolutely not for lack of talents, in which he is prodigious, more so than Lee Hyun Il.

    But, like Devendra, I'm tired of giving excuses for him, however valid; he has only himself to blame for missing the third Olympic gold for which he is very much capable of grabbing, it's certainly within his grasp but I must say Chen Long's awesome form in Rio'16 as well as age and physical advantages may narrowly tip the balance in the younger man's favour. Enough said, all this is water under the bridge now.

    I agree, Lin Dan, should take a leaf from both Peter Gade and Lee Hyun Il how to maintain longevity and also from Lee CW how to stay motivated and disciplined in training.

    To be fair , virtually anyone in Lin Dan's shoes, would have chosen retirement after LOG'12's second Olympic gold. It's naturally so difficult to motivate oneself at the top for so long and past the normal retirement age,esp when one has already achieved so much, in fact too much, in my opinion.

    Though Lin Dan decided to carry on post-LOG'12 and kept saying he wanted to go for a third Olympic gold, consciously speaking, I believe and have to agree with Li Yongbo who once said he lacked the hunger, subconsciously speaking. I would imagine if he's not the first and only double Olympic gold medallist in MS, then it's perhaps a different story, he might just be more motivated, driven enough and train harder to break the record.

    Even more so, now that his wife is due to give birth anytime this month, Lin Dan can definitely be expected to put his family first than ever, and even more inclined to unwind and slow down as far as competitive badminton his concerned. His partaking in the CHN National Team Championships the past week is more to , partly, repay Beijing Club of which he's become a member and. more, to get his mind off some of the anxious waiting for the arrival of the baby.

    i have a feeling that since Lin Dan shifted his loyalty to Yonex, LYB has not been very supportive of him.

    Of course. LYB has always been one to push for development of younger players over longevity of seniors. Remember when he wanted Sun Jun and Dong Jiong to retire to pave way for Xia Xuanze and Ji Xinpeng, and then for those two in turn to make way for Bao Chunlai and Lin Dan.
    IMO, Lin Dan has stayed on for far too long for LYB's liking

    In the WS to be played later today my guesstimate is that Sun Yu will win over CM and Sung JH to overcome Tai TY....

    Cheung Ngan Yi beat Sayaka Sato, not that unexpected as she appeared to have improved her court coverage significantly the way she disposed of Busanan earlier.

    Perhaps, it's partly due to Sayaka Sato's grueling three-setter match yesterday with Sindhu taking a toll on her. Just saying as there's no livestream to watch for Ct3.

    it is the style of play which speaks when you step on the court.
    Many indian players struggle playing south paw players.
    Starting from Saina, Sindhu and Srikanth etc., almost every indian player struggle against lefties. India don't have a quality left handed player to practice with.

    I don't wanna take credit from Hongkong player, but I must say that Sato was extremely tired yesterday. it Might have played a part in today's match.

    Always the same. AY hits to the deep forehand corner of NO and she plays a straight drop or clear. Never does she play a cross-drop or smash cross-court... Why?
