China Open 2019 draw
R1 : Ko/Shin vs Choi/Seo
R2 : minions or Hoki/Kobayashi
Men Double at its best.
Always an eerie tension in their. Most of the matches, you cant call who will win and who will lose except for the 2 matches where the americans and canadians are playing.
Is Ko injured? He has opted out of the Chinese Taipei open right? I hope he plays the China and Korea open. I dearly miss him and shin and i want them to play as many games as possible
Have to say i am very impressed with this new Japanese pair of Hoki and Kobayashi. Kobayashi attacks are so so steep and hoki amazing with his defense and net play. Challenged setiawan a lot in the nets during the recent BWF World Championships.
They had been relatively the "challenger" up till recently. Now that they are the WC silver medalists they have now put themselves in the list of the pairs to beat in the circuit.
Ko/Shin had given a walk over in Taipei Open. I still haven't heard what really caused it. But could be injury or unfitness on Ko's part. Might be a good decision to withdraw with China Open and Korea Open is coming up.
As in Korea Open they will play Lee/Wang R1 and possibly Fajar/Rian in R2.
Emm. But i am not sure. Didn't Ko win the first round in XD with EOM? It's not that they gave walkover before the tournament itself. That is worrying for me.
According to Badminton Times, Ko had a blister on his toe.
Great Thanks for this news. Blisters shouldn't take much time. Ko should be ready in a week
Must've been a mighty blister to stop Ko of all people from him at it
Goliath met David.

Ko/Shin's Denmark Open draw :
R1 : Hoki/Kobayashi
R2 : minions (or Liao/Su)
QF : Boe/Conrad (or Han/Zhou) or (Kim/Lee vs Satwik/Reddy)
SF : Li/Liu
Not too optimistic about this tournament with that draw and their recent Form
I don't see Ko/Shin's name in FO draw. And they are not registered in Macau Open either.
Guess we won't be seeing them much later this year.
They are not injured. They just won the National Sports Festival title today in Suwon. The Macau Open deadline was before they withdrew from France, which was in turn after their loss at the Korea Open. It may be that they had originally planned to play the 3 Super 750s and wanted the Macau week off, but then decided against Europe after losing in Incheon. In any case, they are still entered in China and Hong Kong and no doubt they will also play Gwangju. Who knows about Syed Modi? Denmark and France make an expensive trip if you're no longer funded by the national team and while they might have found the points useful, the results in Changzhou and Incheon meant Guangzhou was basically not going to happen. This is all speculation on my part, mind you.
I see. Makes sense, hard to move with limited resources.
At least I'm glad to hear they are doing just fine, no injuries whatsoever.
A fairly likely scenario, imop. Additionally, traveling to Europe means jet lag, stress, more time away from family/friends, that might have played a part too...I just hope they have a fire in their belly regarding Olympic qualification and will try to get in as the second Korean pair, even if they have no chance at being selected over the BKA combination
Ko/Shin withdrew from DO. I guess they are skipping the Europe tournaments altogether.
That's too bad.
Actually, Ko had withdrawn from the French Open and was already showing as [WDN] on ts for the Denmark Open, in both MD and XD, by the time he and Shin won the NSF MD title. However, a few days later, Shin did not play in Gimcheon's team tie on Wednesday against Samsung. Instead, Ko played MD with Shin Tae Yang and lost narrowly to Kang Min Hyuk and Kim Won Ho. Shin did not look injured the day before when he and Ko won their MD match. Samsung had overwhelming superiority in MS, though, so Shin may have been just taking it easy. Either way, we may see them back in action in Fuzhou.
Ko/Shin is in bottom half of the draw Fuzhou China.
They will play Goh/Nur from Malaysia in R1, think they should be able to win it.
Possibly Kam/Son in R2, Astrup/Rasmussen in QF then could be one of INA pairs in SF and F.
