    Yup, the momentum shifted after mid game interval at 11-7 deciding game, INA pair applied different strategy and minimized their unforced errors.

    Overall, it's pretty good achievement for Ahsan/Setiawan in this year. Their major threat is still Lee YD/Yoo YS in Dubai Final.

    Son WH did it perfectly for his solid defence and attacking yesterday then made Chen L wrong footed several times. MS discipline is more and more interesting now with some well-improved players emerge as the winner in last three SS, Chou Tien Chen, Srikanth and Son Wan Ho. It will be really tight competition next month in Dubai.

    My calculation for top-10 MS SS standing after HKG SS (CMIIW ;))
    #1. Chen Long (CHN), 68260
    #2. Lee Chong Wei (MAS), 63700
    #3. Jan O Jorgensen (DEN), 58250
    #4. Son Wan Ho (KOR), 54580
    #5. K. Srikanth (IND), 51520
    #6. Kento Momota (JPN), 49070
    #7. Hans Kristian Vittinghus (DEN), 45460
    #8. Tommy Sugiarto (INA), 43970
    #9. Kenichi Tago (JPN), 43640
    #10. Wang Zhengming (CHN), 41760

    Son Wan Ho's net skill was so way way above superb and immaculate.

    Yep, it shows how important net play is in singles.

    And does anyone finally know what happened during the WD, when the umpire called a let in the middle of a rally? The players seem to... agree?

    Possibly a rule violation about coaching between points and causing delay. (Picked this up from a Facebook posting)

    You should be an umpire and crack the whip. ;)

    And what are the chances of doing that in a Superseries? Better go the umpire route;)

    Or maybe perhaps I can be the one applying the salve as the tournament doctor... where do I sign up? :)

    Too right! I have done that before. Depends on the Association. HK Open has a bank of volunteers via a sports doctors interest group. Sometimes, other doctors will fill in the gaps.
