A pleasant day for home fans to witness three Danish MS players cruise into last eight, most notably is Rasmus Gemke who stunned world number six Jonatan Christie with his explosive play that quite surprising the inconsistent Indonesian, 21-17 / 23-21. Gemke triumphant was followed by Viktor Axelsen and Anders Antonsen who subdue Thailand opponents straight forwardly, Khosit Phetpradab and Kantaphon Wangcharoen respectively.
Hot favourite Kento Momota repeat his Basel World Champs convincing mode over Sai Praneeth, 21-6 / 21-14, the Indian was trying his best to balance Momota excellent stroke at the beginning of second game as the Japanese committed some unforced errors but still two-time World Champion is on his element to dictate the pace, ending neck to neck circumstances. Chen Long, Chou Tien Chen overcome their second rival succefully and will set up a big match today.
Korean young sensation An Se Young fulfill her huge potential, eliminating World Champion Pusarla Sindhu, thanks to An relentless attacking shot as the Indian looks couldn't anticipate well plus many simple errors. The Korean will up against another prominent name, Carolina Marin next. Marin prevails in thrilling match against Cheung Ngan Yi.
The lefthander Aya Ohori also creating major headline, defeating Ratchanok Intanon in three games.
Korean number one Sung Ji Hyun retired in deciding game, 13-9 against Zhang Beiwen. Sung suffered tendon distortion on her left foot under the toe according to BWF news.
Men's doubles quarterfinal script is quite predictable, only Astrup/Rasmussen sent packing early. Gideon/Sukamuljo will take on complicated task, Han CK/Zhou HD. The Minions progressing without showed up on court due Lane/Vendy conceded walkover. Lower half section offering INA-JPN affairs with Ahsan/Setiawan are favoured to advance while the tie Alfian/Ardianto between Kamura/Sonoda should be equal chance.
Korea pairs rule women's doubles at the moment with four representatives, Japan banking on top two seeds while China swallows disappointment where three combinations bite the dust, only Chen/Jia to be reckoned.
Promoted from reserved list, TPE duo Wang CL/Cheng CY secure quarterfinal spot and will face HKG southpaws Tang CM/Tse YS. China powerful combos Zheng/Huang continue their domination while world's second best pair Wang/Huang had hard times to down Indonesians Faizal/Widjaja yesterday.

Saya can win today
Gao beat 3 olympic medalist and lost to a jp player at china open 2017 final. Hmm, an can have the same fate. Can she
sayaka to upset Cyf?
This is the first time minions would play han/zhou in not slow playing condition, should've won it more comfortably.
Marin vs an se young would be interesting.
fajar vs kamson should be nice ...
I know rian can be useless sometimes, but you should still mention him..
its takes 2 person to make a good pair …. I always felt that Gideon is underrated, whenever minions loses , its GIDEON , when they win its all about KEVIN.
But it is often Marcus when they lost. Why? It's his body language that is too easy to guess for the opponents.
Most opponents would target him. And he broke under pressure not his lack of skills whatsoever.
it's only quarterfinal and all MD match looks promising
If they lost is just becoz Marcus couldn't defend, they would have lost most of the time.
and if Marcus at rear court is without any threat, do you think kevin can perform at what he is best at the net...
my guess is KamSon to revenge this time
If Rian can perform with minimal errors like he did in Korea Open, I think they still gonna win
My wild guess KamSon to beat fajar and beat Daddies
Do you understand what body language is?
It's so easy to tell when he is not in form and struggling. His face and body expression are very negative, scowling, head down, excessive shouting/ celebration, no self confidence, acts as if the world is ending etc etc. Opponents won't find him threatening at all, instead it's like asking them to target him. It's something that Marcus needs to work on himself individually.
I wish he would stop throwing his racket too when he's frustating
minions just need to be in 70% of their best form to beat everyone in MD
All included in the "etc etc"s
But minions need to show the opponents that they are always 100%.
Think MD is in its best eras. All the matches are so good , so hot and sometimes controversial too . So much ego is involved . Looking ahead to 4 of the matches to day.. was able to watch LiLiu & KamSon match yesterday, its always close , a little and situations can change very fast.
Not surprised if its HanZhou vs LuYang in SF and the other probably KamuraSonoda vs AhsanHendra.
My take is LiLiu have to win this title , they are looking really antsy and agitated . They are at their second longest stretch without a title , i cant remember them being this consistent yet has nothing to show for. Its frustrating and the more they think about it.. Of course Minions will play before them.
