    That pair, Arif/Azryn also beat Ivanov/Sozonov of RUS some time ago at RUS Open, so I expected them to pass again here.

    Nah, one of them is Indie (Arif/Azryn) who was just released from BAM a few month ago.
    Of course, the rivalry is strong.

    They are going to face Ko/Shin tomorrow in SF. The Koreans are doing very well so far.

    here are some photo I take of Ko and Shin from the rd16 match. they won quite easy and the qf also looked too easy. I think they have prepared well for their comeback. I have no idea what rackets the use, my camera zoom is not good enough. they use victor sha-960 with covered logo and apacs attire.

    Han Yue got to improve on her smashes, not sharp and forceful enough.

    Hemanth left his opponent to lead in 3rd game. Difficult to catch now.
    11-1 in the interval.
    Now 20-14 for the indonesian player.
    He won it.
    He could get only 13 points after the interval.
    His current ranking 112 will be improved.....
    He has beaten some of the good players of this tournament.

    Chen Lu/Xu Ya thumped by the 4th seed JPN WD pair, Aratama/Watanabe, after ousting two JPN WD pairs, including the top seed JPN WD Sakaramoto/Takahata.

    Once again all Japanese finals, tough job for Chen/Xu to dispose all of them, Japan WD domination is unavoidable.

    Watching these two pairs play you wonder how they'd achieve the final of a any tournament, let alone a world tour event.

    It is an error fest of epic proportions. Nami Matsuyama has been a liability the entire tournament and today it's even worse. Her serves are either direct service errors or assists and her unforced error count must be at 10 already, as per usual. The others aren't better.

    Since 14-10 up, they've done one service error and three straight return errors. 15 all.
