    A star-studded cast for Paris showcase

    Superseries episode continues to one of iconic city in Europe, Paris. All Denmark Premier participants renew their mission to claim best outcome in Stade Pierre de Coubertin. The Destination Dubai Finals deadline is closer now as badminton shuttlers rush to earn more points and hunt 9,200 offering for the winners.

    2014 French Open delivered special moment for Chou Tien Chen as this tournament declared his emergence into badminton stardom, joining MS top ten elite member. Since 2007 inauguration edition, this Superseries had produced different winner for MS category. Only Malaysian hero Lee Chong Wei won it twice (2007, 2011), three legendary names also listed as gold medalist here, Peter Gade (2008), Lin Dan (2009) and Taufik Hidayat (2010). The surprising champion happened in 2012 when the underdog Liew Daren took his first ever SS title here. Danish #1 Jan O Jorgensen tasted the triumphant one year later. Three former and defending champion coming again to regain their title in the highly competitive badminton also China top ranked Chen Long who’s seeking French Open title that still missing in his trophy collection. Danish hotshot Viktor Axelsen will be pumped up to do better result and barring any upsets he’s slated to meet another bright young talent, Kento Momota at last eight.
    R/32 highlights : Chen Long (CHN) v Tommy Sugiarto (INA), Kento Momota (JPN) v Son Wan Ho (KOR), Viktor Axelsen (DEN) v Wei Nan (HKG), Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka (INA) v Chou Tien Chen (TPE), Tian Houwei (CHN) v Srikanth Kidambi (IND)

    Two-time winner Wang Shixian has challenging road to create hat-trick here as she will get tough opening round, none but Denmark Premier runner-up P.V.Sindhu. Two rematches of last week DEN Open involve Li Xuerui and Wang Yihan who will up against Fanetri and Hashimoto respectively. The world champion Carolina Marin should have no problem to enter quarterfinal and on the scenario will face Sung Ji Hyun. Indian jewel Saina Nehwal has tricky Canadian test, Michelle Li and possibly will face her nemesis Mitani at last sixteen. Former world champion Ratchanok Intanon is back after missed Denmark stop and should clear early hurdles.
    R/32 highlights : Wang Shixian (CHN) v P.V. Sindhu (IND), Sun Yu (CHN) v Nozomi Okuhara (JPN), Busanan Ongbumrungpan (THA) v Bae Yeon Ju (KOR), Li Xuerui (CHN) v Lindaweni Fanetri (INA), Porntip Buranaprasertsuk (THA) v Tai Tzu Ying (TPE)

    Lee YD/Yoo YS winning streak after bagged JPN SS, KOR SS, Denmark Premier may extend in Paris. Their arch-rivals Ahsan/Setiawan, Boe/Mogensen, Fu HF/Zhang N are still trying to bring their best feat and back on the right track. We'll see whether a string of darkhorses, former world champion Ko SH/Shin BC, INA #2 Pratama/Suwardi, two Chinese pairs Chai/Hong and Liu XL/Qiu ZH could steal the spotlight. Korea MD confirms their domination so far in this discipline to win 5 of 9 Superseries titles.
    R/32 highlights : Endo/Hayakawa (JPN) v Li JH/Liu YC (CHN), Chai B/Hong W (CHN) v Goh VS/Tan WK (MAS), Astrup/Rasmussen (DEN) v Kim GJ/Kim SR (KOR), Ko SH/Shin BC (KOR) v Liu XL/Qiu ZH (CHN)

    Korean WD reshuffle starts to deliver significant result lately, Chang YN/Lee SH and Jung KE/Shin SC gradually find their winning touch and shake little bit China supremacy. Luo twins sisters alongside with Tian Q/Zhao YL will be China best chance to bag title in this category while the newest combo Huang YQ/Tang JH is expected to spring upset againt the established pairs. Top seeded Matsutomo/Takahashi, European finest Pedersen/Juhl and Indonesian #1 Maheswari/Polii should redeem their setback last week.
    R/32 highlights : Go AR/Yoo HW (KOR) v Kakiiwa/Maeda (JPN), Chae YJ/Kim SY (KOR) v Anscelly/Soong FC (MAS)

    Defending champion Ahmad/Natsir may hope to crown first superseries title in this season here after being runner-up thrice in All England, KOR SS and just concluded DEN Premier. As usual, they’ll be one of title contender together with some familiar names, mighty Zhang N/Zhao YL, Fischer/Pedersen, Xu C/Ma J. The much improved Korean pair Ko SH/Kim HN should reprise the darkhorse role and no impossible to create another surprise here in Paris. Other Superseries winner of this season, Liu C/Bao YX also Reginald Lee CH/Chau HW looked off-form recently and still struggling to remake their winning form.
    R/32 highlights : Lu K/Huang YQ (CHN) v Chan PS/Goh LY (MAS), Shin BC/Chae YJ (KOR) v Reginald Lee CH/Chau HW (HKG)

    Some players have withdrawn according to ts.com last updated : Sayaka Takahashi (JPN), Ma Jin/Tang Yuanting, Heather Olver/Lauren Smith, etc.

    The tournament will start tomorrow with Qualification round (09.00am local time) and twelve XD R/32 matches later on the evening (07.30pm) => http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/s...62A843-4C3C-4CFD-A417-E905A95CE661&d=20151020

    Do you guys believe that both Zhao Yunlei and Zhang Nan will try or rather will qualify and play both events in Rio?!
    If they want a chance to win the MD their best choice is FuNan. I wonder whether LK/LC are in consideration for Rio. Propably not. The other pairs of LX/QZ and CB/HW have ups and downs and I can't see the potential for winning the big events. Ok, WC15 showed LX/QZ still can deliver, but Im not really impressed by them.

    In WD they have a luxury problem in a way, but ZY/TQ are still the most reliable. Luo twins are good, but I don't think they are top notch in terms of the chinese understanding. WX/YY struggle with injurys, so no real option, too. Tang Jinhua is a victim if they go back to the ZY/TQ combination. And they did not find the "perfect" partner for Tang Yuanting. Somehow I don't think pairing up with Ma Jin or Yu Yang can make a Olympic Champion combination...

    When will the team directors choose there combinations to finally pair up consistently to gain enough qualification points?!

    The Korean team seems to have found their combinations. Playing MX is just to gain more stamina for Yoo/Lee, I imagine, as they obviously aim for Rio MD gold. KSH/KHM is their shot for Rio medals in MX. Glad to see Kims are getting back to top form, too. They should battle it out with Shin and Ko for a possible second spot for Rio in the MD. And with SBC/Chae and KKJ/SSC there are two more MX combinations who are good for suprising results and troubling some of the established pairs.
    Chang Ye Na/Lee So Hee and Jung Kyun Eun/Shin Seung Chan look to be promising along the other two combos. Their problem is their low ranking so they meet top pairs in early rounds. I hope they can gain points soon ;)

    Having retained his Denmark title and the accompanying hefty ranking points, I suspect Chen Long may be inclined to take it easy here. His position at the top is so secure, nothing at stake, there's no need to push himself hard and take unnecessary risk trying to win back-to-back SS tourneys. That doesn't mean he won't want to win it but the drive and motivation to do so isn't anywhere as high as at the Denmark Open.

    Frankly, I'd love to see a Chen Long - Lin Dan Dream Final, to me, but I'm not too hopeful, mostly Lin Dan's problem, not sure he can even survive until then.

    At the same time, I'm not optimistic that LXR can do well in this back-to-back SS despite her unexpected but remarkable achievement last week signalling she is on the comeback trail.

    I'm still quite doubtful her longstanding mental weakness issue which last hit her very badly only a couple months ago at the Copenhagen WC can be overcome so soon (not for psychological injuries that failures and setbacks can inflict), not to mention it's pretty tough for anyone to win back-to-back SS tourneys nowadays.

    Another match of the day.


    Chang Ye Na / Lee So Hee won Chiang Kai Hsin / Wu Fang Chien 21-7 21-12

    Oh but then Lee Dong Keun has withdrawn. The reason is as simple as this. The BKA wanted to safe money and they knew Lee Gong Keun have no chance maybe to even pass the qualifying round hence the walkover last minute. I explain this to avoid any further rumours or speculation. So I hope no one will question this walkover.

    Sorry 2 wrong predictions for MS qualifying. Forgot about Lee Dong Keun withdrawal. Hence The qualifying 1 and 2 prediction is the wrong one. I also forgot about Kenichi Tago current poor performance.

    I think Wang Tzu Wei is a young hopeful from Chinese TPE to watch.
