    It was obvious TA has already exhausted during the last minutes of the 3rd game

    Nevertheless, on the other hand, I also saw that faces of Xu Chen / Ma Jin were stressfull

    The CHN Pairs, seemed to carry heavy burden on their shoulders, i.e., playing before their own supporters, and the losses of WS Finale, are several factors that also support the turning points of the 3rd games. Last but not least, the biggest factor for BWF World Champs during XD Finale was lady luck .

    I think their target is not Japan Open. Looking at their ranking, Owi/Butet is not lacking point in ranking. They even has a chance to be #1 XD pair in the world if they can be the champs or runner up at China, Denmark, HK and SS Final. Xu/Ma is the defending champion at China and Denmark, and RU at Hongkong and SSP, so if they lose early, it means opportunity for Owi/Butet. Xu/Ma also the winner of French SS last year, so in order to exchange ranking point they will lose from that tournament, they enter Japan Open.

    Richard Mainaky I think said to media the target is: BWF Super Series Final, and of course the major SSP: Denmark and China Open.

    The top ranked #1, #3 and #4 (Xu Chen/MaJin, ZYL/ZN and Fischer/Pedersen) are all there in Japan Open in progress right now. I guess both China and Denmark are Premier SS events and Japan is not. There are more money to win.

    Xu/Ma and ZN/ZYL was entered at French Open SS last year, but this year the tournament is downgraded, so in order to maintain the ranking they enter Japan Open SS... As for Fischer/Pedersen maybe they enter because Pedersen's sponsor is YONEX and thus they come to home sponsor .

    Owi/Butet was busy after winning worlds with interview, kirab, and visiting Owi's hometown, maybe they would like extra time to prepare for last two SSP events, thus they skip Japan Open.

    Oh Btw, ZN/ZYL is now XD No.1 after they won Adidas China Master 2013. Congratulations for them! Top three XD ranks are very close around 89k-90k points. Very interesting race to year end of 2013.

    My apology, I heard French Open is going to be downgraded, I guess its gonna be next year. Then, I have no idea why Xu/Ma, and Zhang/Zhao is eagerly participated in this tournament despite their busy schedule from CNG and Adidas China Master 2013.

    If I have to guess is because:
    1. They would like to maintain top two XD, so the seeds will be no.1 and no.2... So the only chance they can meet each other is in the final.
    2. They would like to restore the self confidence of these pairs after recent defeat in some tournaments.

    Denmark and French Open M&Q has released, Very competitive entrance for XD department, I would say all top pair expected to meet at these two tournaments.

    Congratulation for Owi/Butet especially to get pass joachim/christina in CSSP Final. This is definitely good for their confidence next.

    Btw, i notice Owi/Butet is always professionally well dressed (more professional than Ahsan/Hendra). Their apparel keep changing (and good) and matching with each other. Must be one of Victor highest paid player in the world.
    I wonder if even bigger contract than Lee Yong Dae?

    Just to update Owi/Butet's achievement since the last update:
    8th SS title for Tontowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir + 7 GPG titles and 1 SEA Games Gold Medal make it 16 titles won by this pair since their pairing 3.5 ago. Compared to Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir (17 titles, including 2 SEA Games Gold and 1 Invitational World Cup), they just need 1 more to match them.

    Towi/Butet's titles (15 Open titles and 1 World Championships):
    Macau Open GPG 2010, 2011, 2012
    Indonesia Open GPG 2010, 2012
    Malaysia Open GPG 2011
    Swiss Open GPG 2012
    India SS 2011, 2012, 2013
    All-England SSP 2012, 2013
    Singapore SS 2011, 2013
    China SSP 2013

    World Championships 2013

    SEA Games Gold 2011

    Remaining big targets to achieve between now and end of 2014:
    SS Final, Indonesia SSP and Asian Games Gold.

    The SS titles which still elude them:
    Malaysia
    Korea
    Australia (new one from 2014)
    Indonesia
    Japan
    Denmark
    France
    Hong Kong

    and I hope they clear most of this list by 2015.
