    Once I heard her call out Yuli after she made a poor shot.
    To be honest when I typed that I was only thinking about whether the first consonant was pronounced like a (english) Y or a J.

    There should be some Germans by nationality who take French names, especially those in areas near Strasbourg, where the borders had been changing hands for some time. But there is a French Julienne pronounced with a J, so I guess Julianne should be with the Y.

    Default Surprise Coincidences !!!

    This tournament is full of surprises.

    Of all the No.1 seeds, only CL survived to win his MS. The others were all knocked out in the earlier rounds.

    Except for the last match in XD, when both pairs are unseeded, all the other winners are seeded higher than their opponents. Somehow no upsets here!

    And strangely, all the four earlier completed matches have players or teams with consecutive seedings of 1 to 8.

    Bomoh or not, no wonder JS still lost in front of her home crowd!

    I have to say this tournament was really great. Amazingly good organized. This lap of honour is a great idea. Badminton needs to get more personal, showing the players as characters. Just look how the Koreans smiled when walking around, giving high-fives to the audience.
    There could be so much more done to get more insight in our sport. The badmiton world magazine is quite good, but would like to know more about our "idols and heroes" ^^

    Well, next week many more hours of watching badminton on the screen are coming, hopefully the livestream will work smoothly. And the week after some live badminton in Basel, love these weeks, even I couldnīt attend the AE bc of a matchday :/

    Agree. She is still my fave CHN WS player
