    To some extent it is correct. But juliane is not underdog. She is performing well nowadays. She has the capability to reach semifinal but that final touch is missing. Some x-factor is missing in juliane, ratchanok and mitani etc. These three people are playing their best games nowadays. Congratz to ratchanok ... After series of failures, she atlast made a final.

    Even though LXR's H2H with Schenk is 5-1 in her favour, I'd like to see her deal with the speed and power play of the latter, esp as their last encounter ended in LXR's defeat. But I can't help feeling IR is a more dangerous opponent because she is more deceptive.

    I tend to think a brilliant attacking player can deal better with brute force than deceptive play. Interesting to note that LXR last beat IR only a week ago in the CBSL and they are scheduled to meet again on 1st Dec for the return match. Let's see how it goes tomorrow.

    As for Schenk,her victory over WYH would be more impressive had she beaten a 100% fit opponent. Never mind ,there's always a next time. Schenk ,I believe ,is good for a couple of years all the way to Rio'16, remarkable.

    Even i thought that. Nowadays, Li xuerui would have learnt the game plan of ratchanok very well as she used to play at CBSL. So, final is already decided. Rat has to improve her game multifold in order to face Li otherwise she will finish it off easily. 70-30 chance to Li

    JS was already a spent force in the 3rd game. Don't think she can play at this level for more than 2 years.

    Xu Chen's fitness problem has to do with his gastritis.

    JS depends more on speed and raw power which can make up for where she is short in skill. A very skillful player can deal with her by making her run all over the court and minimizing her attacking chances. But if you happen to be less than 100% fit, Schenk will overpower you.

    That's why I think Intanon, who is a skillful stroke player and deceptive too, is a more difficult opponent for LXR tomorrow.

    Apart from this, China's habit of top players' loosen up and testing of new players after OG (what they called OG cycle) also offers chances for non-China players to have good results against them during the period of time. Like it or not, this is the fact and did contribute to the current situation.Nevertheless, this is also good for non-China players whose confidence will be boosted, let's see how they continue to perform.
