    Yes she has improved rather slowly. But her world ranking has slipped though the runner-up placing here will help her regain some ranks.

    To win world honours she needs to change, otherwise she will remain mediocre and be contended with it. But if I remembered correctly, she wants to win an Olympic medal.

    Her opponents are moving further and further from her in performance.

    I visited this tournament yesterday and I was really impressed by Busanan; she showed such maturity and confidence. Next to that her technique and movement were flawless. I also witnessed some of Juan Gu's match and indeed she lacks a bit in the mental game. In the second game Hera Desi was really making it difficult for her and you could tell by the body language of Juan Gu that she was struggling.

    The Chinese ladies in the WD are impeccable. Yesterday against the Dutch girls (Selena Piek & Eefje Muskens) they weren't really as sharp as I expected (especially Bao Yixin was making a lot of uncharacteristic errors), but an 'off-day' Chinese WD would be still heads better than the top of The Netherlands in the WD-department. Their technique... unbelievable; impossible to break through their defense, razorsharp drops, neatly placed smashes. An art to watch!

    The Indonesians in the MDs are always a joy to watch. I normally don't attend tournaments as a spectator (here in the Netherlands we only have the Dutch Open which ofcourse is the only tournament where you can really see some high-end matches), but I'm glad I did and it was very inspirational.

Google is American which follows the M/D/Y format, I presume - which means 10/12/2013 is Oct 12th 2013 and not Dec 10th 2013. CMIIW.
    I don't care what format he follows; he's incorrect:

    You'd think the commentator would do a bit more research before spewing forth incorrect factual information. Oh well, it's not like this is a football broadcast with droves tuning in, but even so...

    Anyway, I didn't get to catch the final when maybe I should've. Those two players are ones I've really never heard of before this competition.

    Yup, 5 countries shared 1 title each

    CHN WD is so dominant, hard chance for others to steal WD title while WS discipline is more balance now...

    On the other hand, I'm more hopeful for Danny and Vanessa in XD.

    They combined much better this time, moving around the court with fluidity and commitment, full of spirit. They exuded that kind of inspiration and positive attitude that helped them to reduce unforced errors even when the pressure is on. Danny has been transformed and is much more confident now.

    And to be able to defeat their higher-ranked opponent in straight games to take the crown is a deserving outcome. How often do you see a SIN pair or player beat their INA opponents?
