WTW up 17-14.
ah great.... Go Jo, Intan, Hanna!
Jo still leads 16-9.
Hana lost the first set to the Korean girl 17-21.
Wang Tzu Wei takes the match 21-15 in the decider. Bye2 Jeon.
Intan takes the first-set 22-20.
Roth still leads 5-3 in the second-set. Maybe it's not surprising Bayu lost to him eh?
An impressive performance by Jonathan Christie today, beating 2 opponents in straight-sets to march to the QF. His next opponent is either Lim Chi Wing or Zhao Junpeng.
Even if Jo fails to advance further, I am still proud of him. He's only 16 and he can still participate in 2 more AJC & WJC.
Roth 11 Shi 5.....really surprising scoreline.
There's a possibility CHN will have 0 representative in BS tomorrow if Zhao lost to Lim later on.
In GS, CHN will likely only have at most 2 and 1 is in danger of losing against Kim Hyo Min.
Roth 14 Shi 6....seems to be all over for Shi?
Er... He's the current European champion. Don't think he's gonna go down easily
time to take a good bed rest Jo... tomorrow will be tougher....
he bing jiao lost 1st set 0.0
I think... If the Germans (and to some extent, Russians) take badminton really seriously (as in, more of competitive sport rather than leisure), they have the potential to dethrone Denmark as the king of Europe...
Where is " child prodigy" from china?
C'mon Fabian (Roth), one more win for the semi-finals!
Kevin/Masita lost the first set and are now trailing 2-5. Hmm.....fatigue?
Battles in the QF:
Pannawit Thongnuam [9/16] vs Ihsan Maulana Mustofa [5/8]
Zhao Junpeng vs Jonatan Christie
Hana Ramadhini [5/8] vs Busanan Ongbumrungpan 
Li Junhui/Liu Yuchen  vs Fajar Alfian/Yantoni Edy Saputra
Huang Kaixiang/Zheng Siwei [5/8] vs Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo/Arya Maulana Aldiartama 
Rosyita Eka Putri Sari/Setyana Mapasa [5/8] vs Narissapat Lam/Puttita Supajirakul [3/4]
Kevin/Masita lead 11-8 in the decider. Come on...finish the match soon!
There is not much domination of a single country in this WJC. In QF, China has 8 representatives, INA has 7.
Suhandinata Cup winner, Korea has 5 only. It seems that Korea best junior players are a bit far ahead from their second best.
Taiwan, Thailand, Japan have strong presence too. Outside Asia, not much left.
This should be a good news. In 10 years time we could see badminton not dominated solely by China anymore.
Bad news is, badminton will most likely still be dominated by Asian countries.
The only possible non-Asian contenders are probably Denmark, along with Germany and Russia.
Sad, because spread in popularity =/= spread in strength
