    Surprise, a good start for Han Li, actually taking the opening set, 21-14.

    Ricky/Berry force rubber-set, having taken the second-set 21-18.

    Ms. Intanon, time to get a grip please. She still doesn't look like she's fully settled into this match.

    With that being said, I do think that we may get a third game.

    Can't believe it, Han Li outfoxed IR at the net with the x-court, for once.

    neither do I.
    it will be really intriguing how their team decide to place SS and LD respectively.

    Meanwhile, LXR drubs Tai TY 21-10,21-13. LXR's form is getting tricky to predict, brilliant one match, so-so the next, then brilliant again.

    Oh, and after an initially awkward start, HKV is proving to be a wonderful commentator. Intelligent with insightful things to say; I'd say he may even be as good as Morten or better.

    Somehow, I feel that Han Li either wins in two or loses in three sets.

    After all, IF (big) PBSI will call Simon for Thomas, after their decision have broken his heart

    and would Simon want to joint again?

    Thanks for telling us the co-commentator is HKV, I was about to ask.

    It seems to me that Han Li could be wrapping it up in straight games.

    Amazing, Han Li takes it in two straight sets. She appeared so cool,calm,collected, and very much in control throughout the match. Han Li at her best.

    Ratchanok played as if she wanted to leave the court early.. Nothing should be taken away from Li Han.. She played nicely without allowing Ratchanok to play her natural game.. Congrats..

    Crisis of confidence for Ratchanok - clearly we know she can beat Han Li based on their H2H, so her problem isn't a lack of skill. She looked so dejected throughout that entire match, and we know that she can play miles better than that, so we can only hope that she sorts out her mental issues as soon as possible.

    It's only the QFs, so no LCW on the TV court as he is expected to appear in both the SF and the Final. Just saying.

    I'm thinking along the same line, the Chen Jin effect is working wonders for CHN WS.

    I'd humbly suggest that IR and her coach pay heed to Morten Frosts's advice: back to the drawing board.
