    Anus (this is how you pronounce Anders in Danish... :) ) became the champion of european games, without Axelsen it was more or less some international challenge level tournament in at least in MS category

    England won two badminton golds through MD and XD while arch-rival Denmark rules singles category. Netherlands pair Piek/Seinen shine in women's doubles event. Ellis/Langridge did well in multi-sport event, after Rio 2016 bronze medal, they bagged 2018 Commonwealth Games gold medal and topped EG podium in Minsk couple of days ago.

    Without Viktor Axelsen, second-ranked Danish star Anders Antonsen meets the expectation to beat Brice Leverdez, the latter ran out of steam in deciding game, 21- 19 / 14-21 / 21-10. Mia Blichfeldt affirms her status as Denmark number one, eliminates Kirsty Gilmour straight-forwardly, 21-16 / 21-17 who tackled defending champion Line Kjaersfeldt in semifinal.

    Just found Canada open qualification matches on YouTube:

    Looks like there is still chance even for me to play at top level tournaments :p I would beat this Mathew Fogarty in straight games.
    Honestly, it is shocking that some random 62-year old guy is play BWF World Tour Events. Can anyone really participate those?

    Lee Yong Dae is really defencing quite badly and playing mind game at receiving and servicing, didn't go well most of the time.

    They manage to win unimpressively.

    The higher-ranked and established names Lee Dong Keun and Prannoy sent packing early. The top-seed Lee lost surprisingly to the inexperienced rookie WR #712 TPE Yu Sheng Po, 20-22 / 14-21 while Japan potential player Koki Watanabe stuns third seed Indian in two straight-games, 21-16 / 21-10. Prannoy looks unfit, mishitted the shuttlecock frequently into the net, couldn't balance Watanabe speed and agility. China dominates last sixteen round with six representatives in the draw, one quarters spot has been secured in this category.

    Home darling Michelle Li as predicted has trouble to pass Korean low-ranked Sim Yu Jin in three games, experience brought the Canadian to overcome her opponent threat in third game. An interesting second round clash will pit sensational An Se Young against Japanese latest talent Hirari Mizui who beat the Korean in Vietnam IC prior to NZL Open victory and Sudirman Cup debut.

    From six to one left, that's Chinese youngsters narrative in Calgary, two of them lost to vast experienced Indian opponent, Ren Peng Bo fell short to Kashyap in tight-contested match, 21-23 / 23-21 / 19-21 then Sun Fei Xiang eliminated by Sourabh Verma in rubber games. Sun FX, 2016 WJC gold medalist doesn't meet the expectation to exploit his potential in senior years, compared with his peers Kantaphon Wangcharoen and Lee Zii Jia. Verma will meet another Chinese rival to secure semis spot, 2018 YOG champion Li Shi Feng. Couple of interesting quarterfinal ties will looking forward to Wang Tzu Wei versus Heo Kwang Hee and Rajiv Ouseph takes on Japanese challenger Koki Watanabe.

    Women's singles next big thing, An Se Young takes revenge over Hirari Mizui, dropping opening game the Korean found fine form to attack more with fast interception in next two games which going to one way traffic. Her victory will set up a big match with home hopeful Michelle Li. The surprising outcome sees the aggressive Natsuki Oie, 2016 WJC bronze medalist outclasses her senior compatriot second seed Saena Kawakami with two quick games, 21-12 / 21-10, Oie will meet China sole survivor Wang Zhi Yi, 2018 YOG silver medalist next.

    In men's doubles, a big upset occurs when top-seed Liao MC/Su CH suffer early exit to Japanese unheralded duo Matsui/Takeuchi in three games. Title contenders, Ko SH/Shin BC, Lee Y/Wang CL, Lu CY/Yang PH march on into last eight.

    That’s a brutal g3 loss for Michelle Li...even worse than Okuhara’s demolition.

    What's the score?

    Edit : NVM. The score is the same, 21-3. But, yeah, it's worse than Minions in Final BAC and NO in Final AO, as the opponent is ranked way lower and not on the same league as ML.

    • Once again the strong-determined P. Kashyap prevails in gruelling match, he eliminates Frenchman Lucas Claerbout narrowly in 76 minutes battle, 12-21 / 23-21 / 24-22, interesting to wait how his physical fitness responding for semifinal showdown against TPE #2 Wang Tzu Wei. Bottom-half of draw will witness two up and coming teenagers duel, Japanese promising prospect Koki Watanabe finds Chinese challenger Li Shi Feng. Wanatabe edges past seasoned campaigner Rajiv Ouseph, 21-17 / 21-19 while Li stuns Sourabh Verma, the Indian managed good lead in early stage of second game, 5-0 then 9-4 but losing his plot suddenly as Li started to implement tactical play and executed with attacking smash and right placement.
    • One step closer to final round for An Se Young, the talented Korean shows maturity in her shot selection beyond her age, slipped to seal straight-sets match, An injected the pace, speed up the tempo in deciding as Michelle Li couldn't have too much, no more energy left to score only 3 points. An will contest German surprise Fabienne Deprez who beat former Thailand first layered, Porntip Buranaprasertsuk. Another Korean also books semis spot, Kim Hyo Min will up against China new hopeful Wang Zhi Yi, both players overcome Japanese rival in last eight. 19 years old Wang displays persistence and patience when trailing behind 7-12 in third game, Natsuki Oie couldn't keep her consistency and began to score uncharacteristic errors, too rush to unleash attacking shots that far from accuracy, the Chinese turn the tables to grab victory, 21-17.
    • TPE men's doubles top two seeds are already out of title contention, Lee Y/Wang CL who creating badminton headline early this year to participate non-stop tournament in seven consecutive weeks, eliminated by the unranked Danish veterans Boe/Conrad straight-forwardly. But it's Japanese lesser-known combination Matsui/Takeuchi who produce stunning result here, knock out 2014 World Champions Ko SH/Shin BC, 21-19 / 21-14, the Japanese also beat more fancied rivals Liao MC/Su CH at last sixteen.
    • Korea fresh scratch pairs meet the expectation to enter semifinal, Baek HN/Jung KE and Chang YN/Kim HR, the former beat top-seed Matsuyama/Shida, 21-17 / 21-17. China senior-junior experimenting duo Huang J/Yu XH also pocketing encouraging result in their first debut and will take on Aussie pair Mapasa/Somerville for a place in final.
    • Ko SH/Eom HW are the favourite to nail mixed doubles crown, practically there's no major obstacle could spoil their party, expected to pass semifinal test, second seed Orleans Masters winners, French youngsters Gicquel/Delrue and either Lee JH/Hsu YC or China juniors Guo XW/Zhang SX in last round.

    Boe/Conrad won over Lee/Wang. This new pair seem to be doing pretty well.
    Are they still with the national team by the way?

    I don't think so. Both of them already quit the national team before this pair is formed.
