    Don't worry too much. Shi Yuqi also recently , remember at the AE, received a hard knock at LCW's hands, humiliated and bamboozled. Now it's Srikanth who taught him a lesson he will never forget.

    I'll be a bit optimistic and think it's an isolated incident , owing mostly to his inexperience, he played right into Srikanth's hands who loves just the kind of set-up that let's him control the net, the opponent lifts as expected, and he quickly gets behind the shuttle to unleash his jump-smashes.

    I see SYQ as a hard-working and talented young player with a positive attitude, he will learn and get better over time. He is 21 years of age now, if he doesn't make another breakthrough in two years' time, then I'd say he won't go far. Let the future tell. Hard knocks like those SYQ has suffered, if it doesn't break him, will strengthen his resolve and help him realize his true potential one day, if he is made of sterner stuff.

    Bear in mind, SYQ has beaten the legendary Lee Hyun Il twice in as many meetings, the last time was just only last week in R1 of the INA PSS.

    Yup.. Cant judge a player just on the basis of 1 loss. He has already shown what he is capable of. New venue, court conditions will change and it will favour certain set of different players.

    points are not 'lost' if you don't play the same one next year. ranking is based on your 10 highest point finishes in the prior 52 weeks, unless you play the same tournament and it is held before 52 weeks has passed. ie: all england on may 31st this year, then on may 1st next year. only 48 weeks have passed but if you play your result will replace the one 48 weeks (last year) earlier.

    eventually all tournaments drop off your ranking after 52 weeks anyway. this is why injured/suspended players can fall to zero points, a la kento momota, and retired (but unfiled paper work) players are still ranked for a year.

    i'm pretty sure my interpretation of the ranking rules is correct, but i'll re-read it to make sure...

    Nah rankings dont really matter. Kevin/Gideon already lost the AUS points before the Indonesia open. They also lost the NZL GPG points.

    BWF dont actually use the tournament points - They just follow the time. If its already one year, the points are gone.

    Gill Said Srikanth is the Fifth MS to enter 3 straight SS Finals.

    Who was the other fourth? Was it Lee,Lin,Chen and Sony Dwi?

    and never see ZhangNan that frustrated with that shout. Like really never - somehow they are supposed to beat HendraTan, thats how HendraTan makes opponent feel, that they are actually better but they are not. Kamura/Sonoda is good, Maybe its their time to convert their consistency into titles.

    Okuhara is not playing with Yonex. Who makes the racket she is using in the final today?

    Akane Yamaguchi surprisingly took the second set despite being overwhelmed 5-14 at a point.

    This is the kind of match Okuhara can be leading 99% of the time but lost the match. Even she is still leading in 3rd game points 8 now..

    Remind me of Fu/Zhang match vs Kim/Kim at the olympics.

    that was an insane ws final!

    it's safe to say okuhara is 100% match fit again.

    Nozomi's experience and familiarity with her fellow junior teammate's game facilitates her victory over Akane.

    A lot of times they have faced each other. When I thought Okuhara will win, suddenly her lead disappears.
    Akane then often comes out the winner even when she was left behind.
    Glad to see Nozomi Okuhara returns to the podium as the Australian Open Champion.
    Congratulations!
