Physically,of course,it's not a problem at all but,as undeadshot pointed out,the magnitude of that win is I believe still playing on THW's mind - he got carried away.
For Xue Song, who didn't have the fortune of that euphoria (beating LCW) and even missed out on winning the AUS final, his hunger and motivation plus levelheadedness are very much in evidence in this NZ Open. Let's see if he can win his maiden title in only his second attempt at adult int'l tournaments tomorrow.

Anand pawar played pretty well on that day against Tian Houwei who created a stir in Australian open 2013 beating World No.1 Lee chong wei and went on to win the title.
Here is the some of the bits which anand said about his win against Tian Houwei,.
"I had seen him play in Australia and had made a plan for him and it worked well. It's a fresh tournament so I didn't really think of last week but yes he did have some fantastic results winning the tournament and also beating Lee Chong Wei and many seeded players,"
"I played more on the net and a lot of flat rallies which he could not handle,"
Its clearly visible that Anand played well against him.

When Tian Houwe excitedly told his mother that he beat Lee CW, his mother encouraged and reminded him," One match can't prove anything,continue to work hard". That means THW can only say he beat LCW in the SF of the AUS Open 2013, and not that he is better than LCW. Yeah, THW still has a long way to go but age is on his side.

What a fortnight it has been for Vita Marissa as she proves that she can still win titles with 2 different young partners (Variella Aprilsasi and Praveen Jordan). She has already done a massive job in helping to nurture the talents of these 2 players, especially Jordan.
She will probably still partner with them for the remaining tourneys of this year and they could be ranked in the top 30 as they would be in the top 50 already by next week! The rest of the tourneys will include possibly:
1. Malaysia Open GPG (confirmed)
2. Thailand Open GPG
3. Indonesia Open SSP (possibly from qualifiers)
4. Singapore SS (perhaps?)
5. Vietnam Open GP
6. Chinese-Taipei Open GPG
7. Indonesia Open GPG
8. Korea Open GPG
9. Macau Open GPG
Plenty of tourneys to choose from....they could just play in at most 6-7 of them to be ranked in the top 30.

WS Final: Deng Xuan vs Yamaguchi Akane
DX won 1st set 21-17.
YA is a good player. But she losses out in terms of height. DX has longer reach and longer strides, and can intercept the ball at higher point to create a steeper and faster drop/ smash as compared to YA.
YA is one player to keep an eye on for the future, but frankly, I think in the long run, she losses out due to her shorter height (1.6m?).

2nd set: DX leads 11-6

no one updates the score

DX uses her height and longer reach to her advantage by getting to the ball earlier and playing the ball earlier. This gave YA less time to react and put more pressure on just retrieving the ball. But YA does have good reading of the game, strong foot step and good powerful placement smash.

13-13 now. YA caught up to draw level with DX
