It was a painful defeat for Mohd Ulinnuha/Ricky Karanda Suwardi as they squandered a 5 pts lead at 7-2 in the third-set and was leading all the way till the end. But the English pair of Chris Adcock/Andew Ellis simply refused to give up and they ended up taking the nail biting third-set 27-25.
The INA pair really needs to focus on their attack and defense. Several times they couldn't even kill the bird despite smashing it for many many times, only ended up with the bird being killed by the English pair in the counter-attack. Defense wise, the English pair is also better and they were really up for it, keep motivating each other after every pt (won or lost).
looks like this Eng pair will able to fight over Mas diamond pair Koo/Tan next week All England
First impressions of this Japanese player...he looks a bit emotional with his body language. Sharp and confident at the start but once he went behind the shoulders slumped a bit and he kinda lost his sharpness...looks like he's got it back together now.
Unfortunately for him the badminton europe stream has shortened his name to TAKESHIT on the scoreboard
Aprilia Yuswandari finally makes it to R16, taking the rubber-set 21-15.
Gebby Ristiyani Imawan/Tiara Rosalia Nuraidah also had to go through 3-sets before taking the match. They will have a tough task of beating the top-seed Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi, who has yet to be beaten by INA WD pair lately.

Thrilling end of game, despite an average level of play. The Thai lost his nerves and control of the game, but managed to push it to the overtime points at 20-19 for Zavadsky, back to 20-20. Tanongsak finally wins it 22-20 after push a high pressure on his opponent in the final rally.
