    I'll be looking forward to Akane Yamaguchi's progress!

    Though I think it will be quite a breeze for Lin Dan till Semi-Finals, it will be interesting to see how other players will fare against him. Everyone will be keeping an eye on him to see if he is still a threat to their paths.

    It baffles me that a defending champion( akane Yamaguchi need to go through qualifying stage, plus it is her home soil. Speaking in term of promoting badminton, it just does not make sense.

    It will be very tough for Akane Yamaguchi to defend her tittle this year as she will meet LXR in the very first round if she qualifies for the main draw. But Akane has the surprise factor on her side as this will be the first time they meet. I think LXR will win but I'm rooting for Akane to create an upset here.

    Do you seriously think so? The official sponsor is not yet announced so even if he uses Adidas products, there will be no logo whatsoever. How can people know if it's Adidas or not without the logo?
