    I became fan of Lindaweni Fanetri for her fighting qualities. I'm waiting for her first round match against Li xuerui. The way she eliminated Tai tzu ying in the quarterfinals of BWF world championships was amazing. She saved 6 match points in the second game before taking the match in 3 games. Marvellous.

    I was expecting prannoy vs JOJ in the second round. Unfortunate , it won't happen.

    Now, Brice Leverdez and Sai Praneeth will be promoted to main round and will occupy the places of JOJ and Hans Kristien Vittinghus respectively.

    The MS draw is simply too unbalanced.

    In one half you have Lee Chong Wei, Lin Dan, Chen Long, Kento Momota, Son Wan Ho.

    While on the other half you have only Srikanth and Victor Axelsen.

    It's really close battle, rubber games for Wang TW v Ginting and Christie v Nishimoto.
