    To be honest, my childhood image of badminton was a racket wielding Indonesian. Chinese were the table-tennis guys.

    But given how Chinese win very less in juniors and are all over Olympics and World Champinships - I asked the question.

    Joshi brothers have won their matches. Two more Indians in next round. Good going so far.

    They don't play enough international tournaments for a seeded/top ranking. Song Xue must have gotten a seed based solely on his performance in the team tournament ...
    And there are not "few" CHinese players here, there are just many many Indian ones in comparison

    Basically... when the juniors are thrown into the "real battlefield", it's Charles Darwin all over again: survival of the fittest. The strong will be world beaters, the weak will be barely heard of.
    That's why for each Chen Jin/Chen Long, you have Zhou Wenlong, Qiu Yanbo, Lu Yi, etc, etc.

    So we just need to bring in some guys from CBA to other countries to take them to next stage.
    Hmmmm I doubt Chinese would allow their coaches to be hired by Indians or Thais.

    Don't know about Rituparna, but Dani should not give up without a fight. Let's see.

    All the 4 INA BS players are through to R32, where the real matches begin. I expect at least 2 to be eliminated.

    BS R32
    Rohit Yadav C.
    [5/8] vs Fikri Ihsandi Hadmadi - the seeded IND player to progress.

    Panji Akbar Sudrajat [9/16] vs Chang Tak Ching - I expect Panji to fulfill his seeding.

    Pratul Joshi vs Thomi Azizan Mahbub [9/16] - this will be a tough match for Thomi and I also hope for him to fulfill his seeding.

    Arief Gifar Ramadhan vs Kento Momota [2] - it will be a miracle if Gifar can beat the AJC champion.

    GS R32
    Sandra-Maria Jensen
    [9/16] vs Rina Andriani - the DEN girl to progress.

    Ruthvika Shivani G. vs Hanna Ramadhini [9/16] - hopefully, Hanna can fulfill her seeding.

    BD R64
    Alex Lane/Sam Parsons vs Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo/Rafiddias Akhdan Nugroho [5/8] - the real test for Kevin/Rafi will begin in QF.

    GD R64
    Maretha Dea Giovani/Ni Ketut Mahadewi Istirani
    vs Alida Chen/Kirsten Van Derk Valk - the INA pair to progress.

    Olga Morozova/Natalia Rogova vs Melati Daeva Oktaviani/Rosyita Eka Putri Sari [5/8] - ditto for Melati/Rosyita.

    XD R64
    Alfian Eko Prasetya/Shella Devi Aulia
    [9/16] vs Bowornwatanuwong Phuttaporn/Narissapat Lam - a tricky first test for Alfian/Shella and I hope they don't fumble.

    Duncan Yao/Takeisha Wang vs Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo/Maretha Dea Giovani - the INA pair should breeze through the next round.

    Nathan Osborne/Josephine Wu vs Putra Eka Rhoma/Ni Ketut Mahadewi istirani - ditto for Putra/Ni Ketut.

    Koshun Miura/Akane Watanabe vs Edi Subaktiar/Melati Daeva Oktaviani [2] - also a tricky tie for the second-seed.

    chinese players usually do not compete in junior tournaments...hence their rankings
