    Well, of course there's going to be frustration.

    I agree, but not for badminton reasons. ;)

    Lee Jii Zia is just one of the reasons. I was in negative mood.

    I waited for many tournaments to watch Nishimoto playing, but the matches are often on court 3 or court 4.

    Some tournaments I just have "a live score" to watch, from round 1 to round 3

    Some tournaments which have live stream video for court 1 and 2, he played and lost to at the first round.

    @terrynguyen121988
    And then, to top it off, some wanker on badmintoncentral comes along and complains that Nishimoto's playing on tv court. :D
    Sorry, I hope you know I was just joking.

    @Baddie lover
    Thanks, that's great news. SC is my favourite tournament in badminton and I hope everyone is showing up with their best squads.

    Assuming the broadcasters are paying a substantial amount of money to BWF for the 'exclusive' broadcast rights for their respective territories, if BWF comes up with the worldwide pass, wouldn't it undermine the agreement?

    I just don't care win or lose if he meet Lin Dan, this would be semi-final if both can go though.

    Of course, I support to Nishimoto to win the title but if he lose at semi final, it's still fine.

    Ah, you meant the match of Nishimoto against Lin Dan.

    It's unfortunate for Nishimoto. LJZ isn't really just any unseeded player though, he could beat CTC a few times too in his good day.

    Then the BWF is more worried of cashing in on each tournament than developing the sport by making it accessible to the largest figures.

    Tommy Sugiarto had learnt of his three previous defeat, changing tactic this time to neutralize the quite monotonous Lu Guangzu. All China back-ups continue unstable performance, only the qualifier Sun Feixiang still survived and will up against Heo Kwang Hee next. Lin Dan will face challenging test tomorrow, Sai Praneeth who troubled Kento Momota and Shi Yuqi lately. Another interesting tie to follow, Jonatan Christie facing nemesis, Wang Tzu Wei, head to head stats showing 4-1 favours for TPE player.

    Reigning Asian Junior Champion Wang Zhiyi creates major upset to outlast Saina Nehwal, obviously the Indian ran out of steam in deciding game, 21-4. Korean promising teenager An Se Young also catching the attention to edge out more experienced Chen Xiaoxin in marathon match, 83 minutes of play, 21-18 / 18-21 / 23-21. The 17 years old An will take on former China player who representing Australia now, Qin Jinjing, 2014 WJC bronze medalist. Japan squad still intact in last sixteen with hot favourite Akane Yamaguchi, defending champion Sayaka Takahashi, Aya Ohori and Saena Kawakami.

    MATCH HIGHLIGHTS
    - Lin Dan (CHN) v Sai Praneeth B. (IND)
    - Ng Ka Long (HKG) v Lee Hyun Il (KOR)
    - Wang Tzu Wei (TPE) v Jonatan Christie (INA)
    - Prannoy H.S. (IND) v Tommy Sugiarto (INA)
    - Sayaka Takahashi (JPN) v Kim Hyo Min (KOR)
    - Li Xuerui (CHN) v Ruselli Hartawan (INA)
    - Stoeva/Stoeva (BUL) v Du Y/Li YH (CHN)
    - Tanaka/Yonemoto (JPN) v Kim SY/Kong HY (KOR)

    I saw this. On match point he retrieved a smash which he thought was a winner. He looked back to his coach LMAO I think he heard Manota approaching that's why he turned around

    Ah, that explains why Malaysia and Indonesia did not bid for any of the major BWF events for 2019-2025.

    Court 3 seems exciting. Too bad it's not either on court 1 or 2.
    Matsu/Naga vs Li/Xia , one game all and Matsu/Naga leading 11-10 in G3

    Earlier, Li Yun screwed up 4 gamepoints in G2 to Gregoria, otherwise anything could happen in the decider, though I'd give the edge to GM.
