    Going by the score, it seemed Wang Xin had a lucky escape in G2 when already one game down and surprisingly came back strongly in the decider to take the match, 18-21,22-20,21-10 - Line K is certainly no pushover. I doubt WX can do a Lin Dan, she'll have to keep striving to play herself back into form, one match at a time. Wonder to what extent is WX match-fit at the moment.

    Not bad, Sayaka Sato, edging out Porntip 22-20 in G1 and now leading G2, 9-6.

    LGP Day 2 report

    OK, so to day 2 of the London Grand Prix, and now we have 5 courts:

    Carolina Marin (ESP) gets a warm up from Lene Clausen (DEN), and comes through 21 – 15, 21 – 13 with a few of her characteristic shouts:

    Joachim Perrson couldn’t recreate the ease of yesterday, and after trailing 11- 2 in the first game, left himself too much to do against Yuxian Huang (CHN) and went down 26- 24 in the second:

    Henri Hurskainen (SWE) played an intelligent match against a too laid back Nan Wei (HKG):

    while earlier, Scott Evans (IRL) had a good victory against Yan Kit Chan (HKG) and Rajiv Ouseph enjoyed a popular win over Vitaly Konov (UKR) and will meet Hsu Jiu Ting (TPE) tomorrow.

    The concourse has an Adidas concession and racket stringers:

    Back on court we saw Michelle Chan Ky (NZ):

    whilst the prize for the most elegant court attire goes to Sashina Vignes Waran (FRA):

    Undoubtedly the story of the day was, however, Wang Xin who struggled against Lena Kjaesfeldt (DEN), allowing Lena two match points in the second game, before coming back and then winning the third relatively easily:

    Denmark’s investment in Lena is clearly now paying off, and it is certainly now possible to see a successor to Tine.

    And now for a sight rarely seen in International Badminton – a ladies singles match between two English players:

    On this occasion the valliant Sarah Milne was the victor against Chloe Birch, but credit is due to all concerned in supporting both players, as well as Panuga Riou who lost out to Kristina Gavnholt (CZE).

    Victor Axelsen was in fine form against Brice Leverdez (FRA):

    winning 21 – 16, 21 – 15, whilst Sayaka Sato continued her comeback with a nice two game victory over Porntip:
    Name:  London GP Gold 2 Oct 2013 036.jpg

    Somebody commented on the lighting – here it is:

    didn’t notice amy players looking up at it accusingly. This venue is to be a community sports venue, and badminton clubs in the area should certainly look to establish themselves here. There was a good crowd in for a Wednesday, and the event feels like it will be a success.

    Till tomorrow,

    The qualifier Sayaka Sato surprised Porntip, 22-20 / 21-19, two close games. While the other qualifier Wang Xin survived from the brink of losing, 18-21 / 22-20 / 21-10. Line Kjaersfeldt is expected to become Tine Baun successor, looks promising.

    Two INA back up MS, Riyanto and Wisnu will face Malaysian former World Junior Champ Zulkiffli and Finnish Ville Lang respectively today.

    Zhou Wenlong, Huang Yuxiang, Qiao Bin, Tian HW, Song Xue, etc etc? Queue, kids.

    This talk of too many tournaments is lame. Players have to decide with their coaches their strategy of entering which tournaments and decide on the logistics. More tournaments means more players and more opportunities for professionals. Indirectly, it shows the game is getting more popular and more people have a chance to watch live badminton at international level.

    Of course, walkovers are not nice to see. So qualifying rounds are good backup for promotion to main rounds.

    Thanks for your alternative view. Will be very foolish of LYB/CBA to put all the eggs in one basket. Surely they have to learn from what happened to WL and WX.

    When Tan Chun Seang won G1, I thought Xue Song is finished.
