    I think Pedersen really should just think it as a 'gesture that make her long service become quite an antique and make her somehow special'
    hahahhaa I do really enjoy it though. some aspect in the game that we can kinda make fun of (not in a direct negative way :D)

    INA MD and XD playing vs. CHN in the final; Ginting and Rahayu/Greysia are playing vs. JPN.
    TTY vs. surprisingly Saina Nehwal.

    SWH again surprisingly lost to Sakai. I hope Ginting gets his 2nd title tomorrow.
    Minions is facing their close rival. It is going to be a great final.

    ws is the toughest competition wise, meaning there are more tougher matches to be played as you advance. going deep in back to back tournaments is no cake walk and winning back to back is harder than ever.

    Yes. Where did she appear from? I felt she's been struggling since her return, but perhaps a favourite hall reawakened her?

    agreed. however, during this tournament ranki/shetty has put the world on notice... here we come! they show incredible upside in racket skill, technique & shot selection/in-game strategy... not to mention raw power.

    from what i've seen their progress has been way ahead of schedule. if they keep it up, at 17 & 21 yrs of age, they are in a position to start dominating for a long time in 2019. i may be early on this, but in my opinion their success:
    • will inspire more indians to play doubles, like saina/pvs/srikanth/hs are doing for singles, thereby making
    • a sudirman cup trophy within 4 years possible
    • a thomas cup trophy within 4 years possible
    • og gold in 2020 & 2024 a high probability
    surpassing cai yun/fu haifeng's accomplishments are realistic.

    i agree. she looks bulkier to me. it's more like she's shedding the baby fat of youth.

    a major component of her fitness is her efficient management of movement. no wasted energy.

    on the flip side he bingjiao wastes an incredible amount of energy. case in point, her jump smash. granted, i think her jump smash technique is very good (body position, landing position, high point of contact, core snap, wrist snap), but, if you're not producing a winner (scoring the point) from that stroke at least 50% of the time you're digging yourself a huge hole in the cardio department. the cost:benefit ratio is negative. her cardio drop-off starts in the latter half of game 2's. it's the most noticeable of the top ws players. there are no long rallies with her in a 3rd game.

    actually it's the host/organizer who retains the right to sell the domestic rights. it's a way for the host/organizer to recoup costs (generate revenue). it's a tough sell for the majority of tournament hosts.

    One finalist who surprises me is Saina Nehwal.
    I never thought she 'll survive against Chen yufei in 1st round. But here she is. Beating Olympics silver medallist and 3 times world championships medallist in quarters and world championships gold medallist in semis in straight games as well and now going to meet current best in the world.
    Why not?. If ratchanok is able to beat tai in recent encounters, why can't this rejuvenated Saina?.
    Go go go....

    She's playing power and Speed in the woman's game. Very extraordinary. See RI really cannot cope with the power and speed thrown at her and unable to execute her trade mark shots. RI looks more tired than Sainal throughout the match. I predict Sainal to win the Final today. Haven't see a long time any singles ladies playing power and speed like a men's game.

    Where is the position of InFront after all?

    I'm confusing with 'host broadcast' term, in my understanding, InFront gives a host broadcast service which give the whole package of BWF's tournament broadcast to any broadcaster in any nation that bought the broadcasting right.

    The obligation to broadcast more hours (e.g QF & SF 8 matches at Super 500 tournament level, 3 addition matches compare to formerly SS tournament) is on Infront's side. In the case of Indonesia Masters, Kompas TV bought the broadcasting right from InFront.

    Maybe you could explain more in a brief about the broadcast cycle and it's relation between BWF, InFront, host country and other countries (non host). Is it possible that the host country didn't buy the broadcasting right or it's a must?

    Thanks.

    Obviously Li/Liu wouldnt care if they beaten LiuZhang just to be beaten by minions. Afterall, its all about money..Like so what if i lose today? If i win, it would be great too and why not? (Despite people thinking LiuZhang is better in matchup vs minions)

    Although with that 1-5 and lost last 5 meetings. Somehow Somewhere Somewhen in a tight matchup and quick setups like MenDouble, they should be able to win against KevinGideon.

    The life in China camp is much more complicated than 'all about money'

    Indonesia players have a high chance of taking 4 titles today. Though I think they might end up with 2 or 3. I think Takamatsu will win though so not sure what the other one is.

    Will be interesting to see how ZSW/HYQ would fare against TA/LN. Is it their first meeting?
