    Watch out for these two chinese junior pairs and one of them could be the Fu/Cai replacement if they can stick together for a while.

    China may find their Fu/Cai replacement sooner than they hope for.

    CHN sent a bunch of youngsters here, the oldest being the sole WS Deng Xuan at 21 - look what they have done here so far. They sweep the XD, WD and MD in all-CHN affairs, and the sole MS Xue Song is on song to the MS Final tomorrow.

    OT: Li Na just won the Australia Grand Slam upon her 3rd attempt... she played quite steadily though her opponent, Dominika Cibulkova (Slovakia), had problematic serves throughout the match.

    And Deng Xuan came so close to beating Saina, even leading most of the way in G3. I'd attribute her loss more to lack of experience. This narrow hard fought defeat to Saina should stand her in good stead in future, instilling in her a belief that she can beat much higher-ranked, established players, and toughening her resolve to work harder and keep improving her game.

    That's good news for CHN tennis. I believe it's a matter of time CHN produce more worldbeaters in tennis, esp. in WS. The sport is gaining in popularity steadily ever since Li Na won the French Open grand slam last year. What amazes me most about Li Na is she is a late bloomer playing her best tennis this couple of years and now, at age 31, she has won her 2nd grand slam in the AUS Open; imagine the prize money she earns, puts badminton to shame. Too bad, tennis is not my cup of tea.

    This is the first time in indian history that two women's singles players meet each other in a final. This time, though it is a gpg final, it's a great opening for further improvement in this area. As usual, disappointment continues in the doubles area. Once again, china has filled many places in the final. I hope in future , many people in india will consider this sport professionally.

    I think Tennis is a better choice. Li NA just won 2.65 millions dollars for just one tournament.

    I think Sri won only because he won Game 1. Orders were to just play 2 games and not tire out the winner.

    Yup, with future players the badminton powerhouse have secured 3 titles in doubles category, only miss WS final. And then 2012 WJC runner-up Xue Song will try to win his maiden title in senior level against home promising talent Srikanth.

    FINALS (02.00pm) => http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/sp...536&d=20140126

    Only 2 nations involved in today's final : host India and China, almost all discipline will stage matches from same country except MS, save the best for last

    WS, Saina v Sindhu, both of them pushed hard effort to eliminate their opponents yesterday. The off-form Saina needs victory desperately here to end her title drought and boost confidence to perform well in next tourneys.

    No idea why you are so optinistic about prannoy. He is good player but he dont have so much varieties in his game as if srikanth has. With the current situation in india, he is the only one who can get a gpg title.
