Only this thai xd can match china in og.
Speaking of which...the invincible CHN XD pair just lost g1 21-14
Taerattanachai is finally doing her share of some work!
His serve was still shaky, more often than not giving KamSon early opportunity to pressure them. But luckily their playing form seems to be top notch these weeks, like when they were marching to Asian Games final last year, so beating world top pairs is well within their bussiness.
And Fajar Alfian serves were hit by some fault calls yesterday and today, they really need to polish this very important aspect of MD game.
See. Told u xd thai is good.
well well well what do we have here....
YaSi getting pummelled? can't imagine eh
Consistency and self believe, are not exactly their strong forte up to this point. Hopefully, it's a turning point for them, they are not exactly babies anymore. OG ticket is one hard item to get when your own NT teammate legends are having a miraculous run of their own, but nothing is impossible.
I think Takeshi Kamura is well deserved to also be included as world best front court MD player of his generation. Today's final is not one of his stronger showing, but his list of achievements speak very favorably to the claim.
Oh WOW...looks like a second upset of the day.
Darn...what a spanking!
But it’s nice to see the two pairs joking around back stage
And the Olympic theme music is back!
Finally the top 1 xd pair has been lost twice to one pair, its good for the sport
Whoa? What's going on in xd match?
Zheng/Huamg bad form or Thai pair top form?
Havent watched any matches
Who are of his generation?
Anywhere to watch the replay besides bwf tv?
Intanon must be kicking herself for pinning HBJ on the ropes and instead of finishing her opponent off, let her escape and even come back to deliver the knockout blow on herself.
He's good, but I always feel his soft play lacks quality a little bit, those 3 players I mentioned are much more complete.
Hate to admit but this thai pair deserves the WR 3 spot. Yuta and Arisa were sitting on that spot for so long but never really posed a true challenge to the top China XD pairs.

Play hard. Train harder.
DIVERSITY SHINES HERE
Incheon Asian Games 2014 motto describes the winner list of KOR Open this year as five Asian nations sharing one title each, KOR-INA-JPN-CHN-THA, contemplating badminton has developed rapidly and presenting high competitive competition in almost all categories.
BREAKING THE DEADLOCK
Women's singles duel is match of the day which showcases interesting turnaround. He Bing Jiao ends her nearly three years titleless in Incheon, as she failed to create any breakthrough since then despite touted as China next big thing post Rio OG 2016. Huge disappointment for Ratchanok Inaton to blow away golden opportunity, losing four match points, 20-16, overall an excellent performance by Intanon but it's too bad she couldn't execute well at the end. The lefthander He shows tenacity, never give up attitude, at the brink of defeat she did great comeback to redeem careless play, losing five straight points 13-8 in second game. The momentum is shifted in deciding game as the Chinese leading constantly till the end, 21-17 then a buoyant He BJ throwing two rackets to the spectators to celebrate her dramatic victory.
A close battle in men's singles final, Chou Tien Chen could read well his superior opponent game plan, balancing Momota good stroke, long rally and solid defense but the Japanese is still the best and stay composed in crunch time, 21-19 / 21-17. Two-time World Champion Kento Momota consolidating his top position on BWF world ranking to continue unbeaten streak, 21 matches since Japan Open last July.
THAI DID IT AGAIN
Puavaranukroh/Taeratanachai create major upset in final day to shock the overwhelming favourites Zheng SW/Huang YQ with convincing way, 21-14 / 21-13. Thai duo are really sharp today and anticipate well yet fantastic counter attack that surprising their opponent. On the contrary, the Chinese look awkward and became error proned, totally off colour than usually excellent feat. Thailand pair should pose the main threat for China top two pairs.
Alfian/Ardianto complete their journey with gold medal, implementing smart tactic efficiently in moderate tempo with flat exchanging shot, right placement, fast interception and effective smash, Kamura/Sonoda pactically under pressure in almost entire match and couldn't develop their fast furious style plus quite weak defense this time.
Coming from behind, Kim SY/Kong HY clinch fourth crown in 2019 BWF World Tour after Barcelona Masters, NZL Open, JPN Open. This pair most likely would become Korea number one, surpassing the more established teammates Lee SH/Shin SC whom they beat today, 13-21 / 21-19 / 21-17 in the longest duration match of final day, 80 minutes.
looking at the highlights i thought RI was playing well and on the way to victory. anyway she look slimmer and faster, so good for her. hope she can steadily work herself to peak form by the time the Olympics start. she also had a disappointing outing at Rio in 2016.
must be china forum. they were upset over her defeating CFY earlier.
what about zhang nan?
