Surprisingly SIN two other new XD pair of Terry Yeo & Yao Lei and Tan Zi Jian & Dellis Yuliana also passed the initial test by disposing of MAS/IND pair of MohdRazif Abdul Latif & Prajakta Swant 21-16, 22-20 and SIN/THA combo of Chayut Triyachart & Munkitamorn 21-18, 21-19 respectively.
I observe that Chayut has been without a SIN partner in both MD and XD for a few tournaments and it doesn't seem healthy. I wonder what was wrong?
Another misconception. If rank doesn't play a part, then the seeding is meaningless. Then there should not be any qualification rounds. Then those with very low WR should be permitted to enter tournaments and there should be no quota? I'm sure you know that the higher WR players do have advantages in any draw.
If you don't have an appropriate WR, then you may not be accepted into certain tournaments, like the SS Finals, the Olympics, the WC?
If you say that WR plays a part but upsets can happen, then I'll agree with you.
P.V.Sindhu has withdrawn from the tournament.. There is nobody to stop Li xuerui in the top branch till final.. But in the bottom half, it would be difficult for saina to face mulitiple threats..

These two can be easily tackled by Li as she has done it just two days before.. Sung Ji Hyun is out of form already... I guess Li will reach finals without any doubt from my side..
so according to you, if LXR is on fire, only sindhu can stop her ? do u think sindhu can do it ?
I recalled Lu Lan was the first person to beat LXR just after the LOG, yet till now she's nowhere to be seen and not called back to the CHN Nat'l team. What's wrong with CBA and LYB, don't they have eyes to see that anyone who can beat LXR no matter what form she(LXR)'s in must be champion material? Even some of us at BC can understand this.
I say, Tian Houwei's mother is wrong when she said to him after his spectacular defeat of Lee CW:" Just one match doesn't prove anything. Continue to work hard".
Nope, I dont think she's unbeatable but I do think that she can beat SN and Sindhu way more times than SN or Sindhu can beat her... And the fact that LXR has started collecting major titles and has more than SN and Sindhu already ? When it comes to titles, people tends to look at the bigger ones compare to the normal SS or GP titles.. So unless SN or Sindhu get a few major titles or people outside india will forget about them once they retire or maybe they can be like LCW, get many many many many titles and stay in WR no.1 for many many many many many many months, get feature in many many many many finals of major tournaments.. That way, people will remember him
