Well, kido and gildeon are on fire, so it's no surprise. I still think fu, Zhang can be a.good pair

Both Srikanth and Jindapon did well to beat their better-known, more established and experienced opponents, Son WH and Sung JH respectively.

Was thinking Tago and Chen Long would never play each other again.
Kento and Jan O will have a rematch. Akane just keeps rolling. Gideon Markus and Kido feel like they want to win another super series. Both the Wangs showing why they are the seeded Chinese.
I hope Du plays better than what he did in Korea, that was below his standard.
Meanwhile...Swedish Masters started today. They are playing in Uppsala instead of in Stockholm this year. For me, there isn't as intresting participants as last year, with Kento being the highlight. But it seems like they are aiming for GP status.

The biggest upset was the loss of Mohd Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan (S1) to Lee Sheng Mu/Tsai Chia Hsin (U).
Boonsak Ponsana (S6) to Kento Momota (U)
Sung Ji Hyun to Nichaon Jindapon (U)
Saina Nehwal (S8) to Yao Xue (U)
Chan Peng Soon/Goh Liu Ying (S6) to Praveen Jordan/Debby Susanto (U), a new pair
Liu Xialong/Qiu Zihan (S4) to Angga Pratama/Ryan Agung Saputra
Goh Liu Ying was obviously handicapped by her knee problem and CPS had to cover for her and that was too much to handle. If GLY goes for surgery, then CPS has to be paired with a new partner and that would mean they have to do well to be ranked.
Akane Yamaguchi the young Japanese qualifier continues to progress and hopefully she could do well today against Bae Yeon Ju (S6). She is still a student.
Saina Nehwal continues to lose in the early rounds of her matches and it is hoped that the slide will be checked soon so that she remains in the top 8 world ranking.

Matsutomo/Takahashi will be playing against Tian/Zhao. Tian/Zhao has a 6-1 H2H advantage.
INA has three XD pairs in the top 8, pretty cool.
Li Xuerui seems to be pretty sluggish coming out of the gate, lost first game before storming back to win the second and third. Hopefully we see a more dominant Li Xuerui for today's game.

QUARTERFINALS (03.00pm, 3 courts) => http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/sp...D-905EECF07145
TV court matches (starting 05.00pm, court 1) :
1) Bao Yixin/Tang Jinhua (CHN) v Pia Zebadiah Bernadeth/Rizki Amelia Pradipta (INA)
2) Lee Young Dae/Yoo Yeon Seong (KOR) v Angga Pratama/Ryan Agung Saputra (INA)
3) Bae Yeon Ju (KOR) v Akane Yamaguchi (JPN)
4) Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thoungthongkam (THA) v Xu Chen/Ma Jin (CHN)
5) Jan O Jorgensen (DEN) v Kento Momota (JPN)
MS, defending champion and home favourite Lee CW is on course to his 10th MAS Open title, looks like Du PY will get same result here as he did last week in KOR SS. While second seed Chen Long almost suffered early exit last night, second lucky escape against the qualifiers, Lee Dong Keun (R/32) and Wei Nan (R/16). Kenichi Tago surely is much tougher opponent than those two qualifiers.
WS, China WS players dominate top-half draw and bottom half will eye Japan young sensation Akane Yamaguchi journey.

WSX-Nichaon Jindapon. I'm excited.

Let's see if Akane Yamaguchi can defeat yet another top 10 player. Pretty sure she will!
