I seen Bodin play a lot of interceptions from the net as well, but he cannot read them as well as Jongjit.
They are definitely the up and rising pair, their hunger to win will ensure that they will reach there, unlike those with potential but not much hunger.
Once again,on homeground, workhorse warrior NTM was able to lift his game and by his usual grinding method wore down his opponent,Takuma Ueda (IIRC he's the one singled out by XXZ as the Japanese MS player to watch), to retain his title.
Porntip,yup,will this be the beginning of her second wind after taking the grand prix to end her long drought of title?
And the Thai MD, Issarra/Jongjit, did well to continue their form from the London Olympics.
INA Pia Bernadeth is now also playing XD after winning the WD, she may be on course to take two titles, a doubles specialist to watch out for.
