    Too bad about the loss today. Nice to see that BWF:s youtube channel showed her match against Bae...
    On another note, this is the first time I've seen Bae playing. I'm not liking her fist pumping and looks towards her opponent. For a while there I thought I was watching Boe, Mogensen or Jorgensen.

    Fist pumping especially when facing the opponent was considered very rude and unacceptable during its early days.

    However, nowadays it seems most fans are accepting it and other antics like LD's shirt tearing and salute, as part of the drama on court that makes badminton characters more interesting to watch.

    Fist pumping and cries of victory are very much part of a player's psyche to motivate himself.

    Don't get me wrong. I don't think there is something wrong with motivate oneself through fist pumping and cries. I scream quite a lot on court as well, but never towards my opponent. The right word for fist pumping and screams etc towards an opponent wouldn't be motivation. I think 'taunt' is a more suitable word for it.

    Me too. Dislike Bae's reaction on court. Yamaguchi is still young. She will learn from this defeat and improves her skills.

    Sad to see Akane lost in early stage in All-England 2014. She should follow her team mates' footstep by playing in lower leagues to gain more experiences.

    Entering China Open Final at 17 is amazing and being rather short makes it even more amazing. I have a strange feeling that this AY being Japanese, will mature and be a discipline and consistent player and most probably will be one of the greatest WS player ever!
    I sincerely hope that her coaches and medical team will take good care of her and avoid the bane of shorter players playing the game - horrific back pain and injuries.
    Good Luck AY.

    I think she is a great player. She has a different style and I hope to see her turn into a player that will consistently trouble the best. She also seems humble and happy to be competing no matter if she wins or loses. I can't stand the grumpy, sulking, floppy hand shaking WS players at the moment like Marin and SN.

    IMHO I think she's more athletic than Mia Audina. I really like Akane's style; the truly is a 'pocket rocket'.

    I'm not so sure, Audina was very agile too. Yamaguchi is probably quicker but not sure if she has more stamina.

    One thing Audina had was deception. If Yamaguchi added the same level of deception to her game and upped her stamina she would be awesome.

    Hi there, as I predicted, Yamaguchi is in the top 10 by the end of the year! Who said I was crazy?
