Bad MD day for China? Even their top youngsters lost in straights to an unseeded English pair.
^ So do I.
Ahhh BSP lost yet another close encounter this time to the evergreen Lee Hyun Il
It was so close throughout in the decider and the first to err, the lesser exp, lost eventually
at 19-18, Huang Yuxiang claimed the shuttle touched Zulfadli on the way out but the umpire indicated he didn't see it.
Lee Hyun Il was neck and neck with Sai Praneeth in the latter half of G3 until 19-all before he could close it out by taking the last two points. That was close.
Hmm I wouldn't be so sure about ZN and Tokyo 2020 atm at least.
Missed the ROG? I wouldn't have quoted Marcus/Chris merely as "unseeded English pair"
They were fab then, and tbh I kinda expected it
Is it just me or somebody else expected JHJ to give VA a run for money, alas I couldn't manage to watch and was actually surprised by the scoreline.
Agreed; they play some of the best MD matches I have seen this year in Rio Olympics/ Not surprised they wiped out this rising chinese pair

Nothing big upset was created yesterday in men's singles category, the strong favourite and defending champion Lee Chong Wei pulled out of this Superseries due to leg injury according to The Star Online : http://www.thestar.com.my/sport/badminton/2016/10/26/chong-wei-iskandar-out-of-french-open/ . Top-half of draw frontrunners, Son Wan Ho and Tian Houwei are slated to face off at last four but three blossoming talents Wang Tzu Wei, Shi Yuqi and Jonatan Christie may deny their semifinal plot. On the bottom half, two leading Danish players Viktor Axelsen and Jan O Jorgensen alongside last year runner-up Chou Tien Chen and 8th seed Angus Ng Ka Long passed their opening hurdle. Axelsen will take on the evergreen Lee Hyun Il while Jorgensen has Indonesian promising rookie Anthony Ginting for a place in last eight.
In the absence of some top names, it's wide open for others to grab WS title here, JPN-THA last sixtieen tie will pit Akane Yamaguchi v Nitchaon Jindapol and former champion Minatsu Mitani v Busanan Ongbamrungphan. One more Japanese representative, Sayaka Sato will up against China hopeful Sun Yu. Sung Ji Hyun, Tai Tzu Ying, Rio silver medalist P.V. Sindhu stay on course in this tournament, the latter has tough test next, the left-handed Chinese new star He Bingjiao. Sung and Tai had problem to eliminate DEN Open semifinalist Cheung Ngan Yi and Danish future player Mia Blichfeldt respectively yesterday.
Two shining pairs post Rio Games, Goh VS/Tan WK and Li JH/Liu YC ended their Paris campaign so early, lost two straight-games to European rival, Danish Astrup/Rasmussen and Rio OG Bronze medalist English combination Ellis/Langridge. Other seeded pairs stepped up to last sixteen, two-time winner Boe/Mogensen pushed into marathon match against Indonesian fresh partnerships, Saputro/Setiawan, next they will meet another challenging opponent, Chen HL/Wang CL. Thailand sensational duo Isara/Phuangphuapet will seek another breakthrough here after cruised into DEN Premier finale.
Women's doubles title contenders, the top-four are favoured to check into last eight, the Olympic Champion Matsutomo/Takahashi will set up a clash with compatriots Fukuman/Yonao, Rio bronze medalist Jung/Shin have Indonesian back-up pair Haris/Sari. Third seed and Rio silver medalist Pedersen/Juhl will be tested by the rising Thailand pair Supajirakul/Taerattanachai while 4th seed Maheswari/Polii will face Chinese Taipei combo Chiang MH/Hsu YC, both Chiang and Hsu also will feat in WS category today.
You noticed this too.
I'm very interested in the VA vs LHI match. Can VA get revenge for his loss at the Denmark Open last week?
the same innocence in all his posts regardless of whichever country the players are from!.
Definitely he is. I wonder what happened to his previous account or he changed his name?
I use to chat with him outside of this forum. i raised this to him. He diplomatically escaped without answering.
today rooting for .
prannoy over CTC
SYQ over THW
NKL over HV
SWH vs ZZ, most likely the Korean take it since he is more experience than ZZ, head to head is 2-1 in flavor for SWH...
don't think ZZ can make it ...
LHI vs CTC should b close fight
Jorg vs ginting will be interesting .. as well
Bro..you are stripping him/her "naked" with this post.
Expect another new member.
Without the big guns, still some interesting match ups.
lol.... just like the sky is blue
Dont understand why he would change his account? Is there some background story I dont know of?
Would like to know as well
