    An unimpressive victory by Deng Xuan. Her win yesterday against KOR Kang Hae Won also not convincing. She has a lot of work to be done,esp her fitness.

    just managed to get a few points. DX just scraped the final game being completely exhausted. Yamaguchi had a chance but lost lacking a little luck.

    YA has strong legs. I think the size of her calf are bigger than even some of the men Badm players. If YA continues to grow taller and stronger, she will be another "young" Intanon with all the potential for success.

    Really top players need to watch yamaguchi.. Only 15 years old and she was almost nearing to win the match.. Wonder kid.

    1) Minatsu mitani
    2) Sayaka Takahashi
    3) Nozomi okuhara
    3) Yamaguchi

    And the list moves on..... Good Uber cup players are on the making...

    DX cute? Can't tell as there isn't any close-up views on livestream. Akane has big,strong legs, that explains her speed.

    She's that pretty? I didn't know, still I doubt she will go far if she doesn't improve her fitness and backhand.

    I think most tv/ Live streaming viewers will notice how obviously big Akane legs are . . . For a 15 year old.
