I hope she can keep herself free from injury in the future. Everyone must have forgotten the shorty Nozomi Okuhara who has been rested for a long time after her injury during the Malaysia Open this year. Akane who lost Nozomi in last year's WJC has now won a SS title. Injury really costs Nozomi.
Maybe CBA has learned it the hard way and prefers to give away walkovers instead of insisting that an unfit player must play.
Someone already asked me earlier, from DEN Open Chai Biao wiil partner Cai Yun while Hong Wei goes with Fu Haifeng. Like somebody said, I suspect it's temporary, more to train the two of them in tournament conditions. The split caught me by surprise too as it was formed early this year and they look quite a good pair.
Yeah, temporary partnerships for two SS in Europe next month.

just one thing to spoil the festivities in this final....and we all know what it is...
4th SS title so far + WC, excellent performance by Ahsan/Setiawan in this year
Really impressed by Akane Yamaguchi, the youngest ever to win SS title, she has matured in her very young age, wow!
selective justice will not justify the justice but just let ppl feel like hyprocrite... sorry for using the word, but i could not find any better one...
I couldn't believe that you stooped so low to defend a walk-over in a Final event by pointing others who have done it. All of them have learned it from the master, CBA. Just look it up how many W/O have been done in events between the CHINA players. It is notoriously ridiculous across all categories. It is horrible! Yes. The Koreans did it in the last event, WD in Taipei SS. Perhaps, they did use this W/O by following CBA's example to boost their WD pairs ranking.
Today XuChen/MaJin gave a W/O to ZN/ZYL in the beginning of the event. ZN/ZYL is given the free pass to regain ranking #1. Besides, MaJin has another event to play later in WD. CBA is genius and nobody can and will do anything about it.
