    What a day for Lee/Shin and CYF. They ginally break their jinx. It's the first WT500+ title for Korea this year. For CYF, she ends CHN WS title drought which happened for two years. Well deserved.

    Lastly, how can I not to congratulate minions? They have won 7 WT titles this year, same as last year. Minions actually have the chance to break their own record, which is already impressive.

    Indeed, but the beaten finalist give them a run for their money. Wang/Huang even almost ended their jinx, leading 19-17 at deciding game but still couldn't nailed it at the end, lost 19-21. Then it's Denmark Open dejavu for Chou Tien Chen, he stole second game but the momentum was gone in final game, Momota physical ability is above him. Last match, Gideon/Sukamuljo dropped opening game before turned the tables to attack more aggressively with their specialization high speed tempo against the less experienced He JT/Tan Q. China young men's doubles spring progessive development lately.

    Two upsets occur in women's category. Korea WD break Japan domination here, all Japanese pairs lost to Korean combinations in Fuzhou including the last one. The reunited pair Lee SH/Shin SC toppled World Champion Matsumoto/Nagahara, thanks to their superior attacking style to trouble the resilient rival. A good news for home fans that Chen Yufei clinches WS crown in top-tier tournament, all credit to this young ladies, her victory over Carolina Marin really boost high confidence to beat Nozomi Okuhara. Chen exactly can balance Okuhara agility to dictate and outmanuever her more-fancied opponent, 21-10 / 21-16, former World Champion has no answer to well-improved Chen.

    Next, Hong Kong Open Super 500 will be the last tournament that provides valuable ranking point (9,200 for the winner) as Guangzhou World Tour Finals is looming.

    I don't like the behaviour of He jiting towards his partner on court. He seems unhappy for anything. Even if he makes mistakes, he turns towards his partner to say something as if because of him, he made mistakes. Lol

    I think Tan Qiang played well in G1
    Did something happen in G2?
    I watched the match again in G3 and didn't like the atmosphere between the two CHN players
    So you congratulate yourself? :p

    Speaking of CYF, she really has improved so much. Nearly all the top ten players have bern beaten by her. In this tournaments, she breaks her jinx against both CM and NO. She also win over AY in the last two encounters. She is superior against RI. I guess only TTY that she hasn't beat yet.

    Players aside, is the crowd in this tournament quieter than other tournaments?

    The chinese coach speaks too much too animated. Im not sure if Tan is entirely happy with that. When you are tired will you actually listen? I dont think so.

    He acts like he is ZhangNan wth... Even ZhangNan never treats LC like that . I can say ZN always communicate with LC.

    Maybe 2 20 years old showing who is the boss and that is difficultz

    Seems like hanzhou doing better when facing gidsuk, better defense and shot quality also seems to be mentally stronger.

    So are they going to change the RacetoGZ2019 to just S500-1000? S300 giving 7000 points is a joke despite having so much less in prize money in any case.

    Nope
    You have to change the contract with HSBC if you want it,
    which is extremely impossible

    The minions were more focused, more synchronized, calmer, and they were using all weapons in their bags this time. It's not apple to apple comparison.

    Having said that, I think hanzhou has better team unity / respect / dynamic than this one.

    Morten and Gill were discussing about sudden death during MD final. I can only remember one match that ended 30-29 this year because it was quite unexpected.
    All England 2018 XD R32 Ahmad/Natsir vs Faizal/Widjaja, ended 29-30 in G3 to the victory of the younger pair.

    Maybe there were more?

    I am aware of that:). But I thought International Challenge isn't a part of World tour? Gill and Morten were discussing about sudden death matches in the World tour.
