    LOL, the winner is the odd one, being short with different uniform. :D

    Yesterday was the birthday of my only favorite Japan player, Akane Yamaguchi.

    Already 22 years old, hopefully she can play more confidently on the court.

    The most memorable moment :
    - At the French Open, she won when everyone thought TTY was too tough to beat.
    - At BAC this year, when she looked a little troubled in the early rounds (always playing until deciding game), and she made one stadium silent, when she won this tournament.

    She can always surprise us with her game.
    Many people blame her for Japan's defeat at the Sudirman Cup this time. But I believe she can keep those people silent again.

    Happy Birthday to Her.
    Ganbatte !!

    Incredible Indonesia Open for Yamaguchi, beating convincingly no less than TTY and PV Sindhu.
    In the final, it was like watching Sonic playing badminton: quick and explosive,
    with a very sharp netplay, so many shuttles brazing the net.

    Big Congratulations to Akane Yamaguchi! Sindhu, with her new coach was looking fierce this time and after seeing what she did with Okuhara and Chen Yu Fei, I thought only TTY or CM can handle her. But Akane Yamaguchi did it.

    Interesting words from Yamaguchi after her second Japan Open trophy:
    “I wish I could’ve played this well in the Sudirman Cup final. The loss in the final made me learn and helped me improve.”
    That's the mark of a true champion, learning from failures.
    Her game has been really impressive the past two weeks:
    it's amazing how she can be so aggressive with her height.
    Maybe PJB should freeze her until Tokyo 2020 :p

    Congratulations to Akane's resounding victories in back-to-back tournaments, clinching the Super 1000 INA Open and the Super 750 Japan Open in 2019.

    I believed, based on current form, Akane and Tai TY are the top two contenders for the Basel WC. I think Marin is likely to skip the world champs as she's hinted and even if she decides to play, she probably won't be in top form just coming back from injury layoff. That's not to say Marin at her best is better than TTY and AY in major events, I should consider the three of them the top contenders unless Chen Yufei too can rise to the occasion to be in the running.

    And I hasten add, Akane now plays an all-rounded game, not that defensive as before nor mainly just a superb retriever to frustrate and annoy her opponents. Her attacking ability from the backline in spite of her short stature impresses me as much as her phenomenal running ability to throw everything back at her opponents.

    On second thought, I felt I must add Nozomi Okuhara's name in the mix for world championship contention. She is also an all-rounder now and capable of raising her game as she did at the Glasgow WC'17 for the crown.

    Well, you know this is not the first time I commended Akane but, obviously, you are blind to it for personal reasons.

    And, again,this time it gets under your skin ? What's your beef, Mr Cunning Linguist ?

    If this isn't trolling, what is ?
