    That is a very classy response from PV, and shows she has maturity, respect and great character. I was a bit disappointed that she seemed to lose focus midway in the second game, it could have been so much more a fight between the 2. Still both players are showing the swell of strong women's players coming up the ranks, and there will be more exciting women's matches to come.

    Surprisingly, the 19-yr-old Jeon Hyeok Jin took G1, 21-19, from the Evergreen Lee Hyun Il.

    And indeed Nozomi Okuhara bested Sayaka Takahashi for the title. At the rate the 19-year-old Nozomi is going on her comeback trail after a long injury layoff, she might well upstage her 17 year-old junior rising star Akane Yamaguchi in the near future.

    Both are relatively short in badminton terms, Nozomi being 1.55m tall and Akane 1.52 if I remember correctly, but both are fast movers with excellent court coverage and tenacity in defence to run most of their opponents to the ground. Any aggressive opponent without a penetrative and consistent attack is bound to be frustrated, annoyed and driven impatient and physically strained by these two stroke players who also make few unforced errors, particularly Akane Y.

    Interestingly, Jeon is provided with a coach whereas Lee is not, probably has to do with the latter's status as an independent player.

    Well, to little avail, as in G2 the young upstart is put in his place by the wily veteran, 21-13, forcing the decider.

    As expected, Lee HI is making his vast experience and knowledge of the game count in the 3rd set, dictating most of the rallies to maintain a healthy lead....14-8 atm.

    Suddenly just when the 15-yr younger man is theatening to make a comeback by reducing the gap to 11-14, it's now widening again to 17-11, ...17-13...18-13....19-13...

    Impressive as Lee Hyun-il's victory appears to be, Morten Frost commented that he was only troubled by Abdul Latif earlier (in R3) when he lost G1,16-21, and was 14-19 down in the 2nd before coming from behind to win it 22-20 and the 3rd 21-11.

    As predicted, Danish combos won two titles, Japan also did well here to pocket WS and MD title. The Adidas girl Nozomi Okuhara showed her amazing talent during this GPG, she and Akane Yamaguchi will be JPN leading WS soon to replace Mitani and Takahashi.

    Back to back title for the veteran Lee Hyun Il after THA Int.Challenge, will he chase Rio 2016 spot?

    ^ What I heard from Frost during his commentary, LHI is not playing for a place in Rio.
    He is only playing for his badminton.

    LHI may not play for Rio ( so he retired national team again after asian game winning team gold)

    KOREA has SWH and LDK(Lee Dong Keun)...
