    Ikr but I would say out of all the bad habits, surely short serving would be one of the easiest to change.

    Hopefully Aaron/Soh can gain more experience from these few recent outings..
    Soh especially need more focus on court.

    She lost to Saena Kawakami in THA Open opening round last week. Hard to say that she's improved, Cai Yanyan is more potential IMO.

    I've always thought Cai Yanyan is better than her, but I think Han Yue is improving too, she beat CYY narrowly last week before losing to Saena Kawakami, and today she overcame Chochuwong Pornpawee who is a young Thai WS to watch.

    It's normal for youngsters like her, 18 years old, barely out of the junior circuit and into the pro circuit to be unsteady and inconsistent, so it's the potential she shows by the opponents she beat now and then that catches my attention. Anyway, still a long way to go for these bright youngsters.

    Both Cai Yanyan and Gao Fangjie progressed to the QFs only to face each other; otherwise I'd like to now how far they can go individually.

    35-yr-old Nguyen Tien Minh, is he the Viet equivalent of Lee Hyun Il, two good wins over Tanongsak and Sameer ? Remarkable.

    Similarly, Sayaka Takashashi and Mitani Minatsu face off each other in tomorrow's QFs in the upper half, while Han Yue takes on the INA Yulia Susanto in the other QF.

    Alas, none of our Singapore players advanced to tomorrow's quarter-finals. The survivors today all lost in straight games. Kean Yew was mesmerized by evergreen veteran Lee Hyun Il while Jia Min found China's Yanyan too strong with her attacking play. Just hope they learned something from this experience.

    Which means there is much more hard work to be done by both our players and coaches.

    Before I left at past 9 pm, I stayed a little longer to watch veteran Nguyen Tien Minh in action against young Sourabh Verma. Although he lost G1, he showed great determination and moved around the court easily to retrieve as many shots. He still used an underhand serve to great effect. I did not stay on to watch the remaining games but was not surprised that he prevailed in the end.

    At the age of 20 and 21, I do not expect them to do well at World Championship.
    They have the great skill but need more training and variety of shots.

    there appears to be some changes to how the draws are done.
    is there any current referees in our mist who can offer any wisdom abt this; abt why the bundling up of players from the same member(nation)?

    but but Kevin/Gideon during 20/21 age already won many titles, so Aaron/Soh must learn from them to be world beaters...

    QUARTERFINAL (02.00pm) => https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/...DEC522-C306-4A2A-9EC1-3C6DA23F4B33&d=20180720

    LIVE TV COVERAGE (Court 1) :
    1) Tontowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir (INA) v Lee Chun Hei/Chau Hoi Wah (HKG)
    2) Chen Su Yu (TPE) v Nitchaon Jindapol (THA)
    3) Jongkolphan Kititharakul/Rawinda Prajongjai (THA) v Tang Jinhua/Yu Xiaohan (CHN)
    4) Chong Wei Feng (MAS) v Qiao Bin (CHN)
    5) Rinov Rivaldy/Pitha Haningtyas Mentari (INA) v Goh Soon Huat/Shevon Jemie Lai (MAS)
    6) Chou Tien Chen (TPE) v Lee Hyun Il (KOR)
    7) Tinn Isriyanet/Kittisak Namdash (THA) v Mohammad Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan (INA)
    8) Bodin Isara/Maneepong Jongjit (THA) v Angga Pratama/Rian Agung Saputro (INA)


    Men’s Singles
    • Strong favourite Chou Tien Chen smooth run brought him to quarterfinal when tough test awaits, Lee Hyun Il whom he never beaten in three previous encounters, this should be interesting match to follow. Lee eliminates local star Loh Kean Yew in two straight-sets, 21-16 / 21-13. One more veteran to grab quarters spot is Nguyen Tien Minh who has Indonesian hurdle Ihsan Mustofa to step up into next round.
    • Huang Yuxiang who succumbed meekly to Sony Dwi Kuncoro last week in Bangkok meet shows contrasting display here to oust second seed Ng Ka Long in close contest, 21-17 / 21-23 / 21-17, the latter looks struggling how he passed first round hurdle, Toby Penty on Wednesday. China has one more representative in last eight, Qiao Bin who will meet Malaysian independent player Chong Wei Feng.
    Women’s Singles
    • Two Thailand Uber Cup-bound players halted by Chinese opponent, the rising star Pornpawee Chochuwong lost narrowly to current WJC runner-up Han Yue while Busanan has big trouble against Gao Fangjie. China has guaranteed one semifinal berth as Gao will cross sword with her teammate Cai Yanyan.
    • Japan also books last four ticket, the resurgent Sayaka Takahashi and Minatsu Mitani face off in this evening. Another top contender Nitchaon Jindapol is expected to sail through into final four.
    Men's Doubles
    • Two INA-THA clashes will be served on TV Court, protagonists Ahsan/Setiawan will take on promising pair Isriyanet/Namdash whilst Pratama/Saputro will face tricky rival Isara/Jongjit. The Indonesians had tough match against the inexperienced Malaysian youngsters Chia/Soh WY and almost bit the dust yesterday, 19-21 / 21-18 / 22-20.
    • Bottom-half quarterfinal is occupied by the unseeded pairs, two Chinese back-ups alongside with Chinese Taipei and Malaysian combinations.
    Women’s Doubles
    • Top-half of draw offers much more appealing contest where all seeded pairs still survive and going to the script. Kititharakul/Prajongjai will find recent US Open champion Tang JH/Yu XH, both of them met last week in opening round when Thai duo overcame the Chinese comfortably.
    • The frontrunner Sakuramoto/Takahata who had picked four titles in this year are favoured to pass Thailand opponent Chaladchalam/Muenwong. China new hopeful Cao TW/Zheng Yu have difficult test to overcome, 2015 WJC bronze medalists Matsuyama/Shida.
    Mixed Doubles
    • It’s delighted day for Indonesian badminton fans to see three pairs march on to last eight, two of them are newcomers. Reigning World Junior Champion Rivaldy/Mentari stun German pair Lamsfuss/Herttrich in three games, later on their compatriots Cahyono/Kandow defeat another GER tandem Seidel/Efler. Three-time winner Ahmad/Natsir have real test Lee CH/Chau HW for a place in semifinal.
    • As predicted, the showdown of Thailand duo Puavaranukroh/Taertt versus The Adcocks produce high intensity and thrilling battle with very tight scoreline that lasted 75 minutes of play, 21-18 / 25-27 / 21-19 for Thailand victory. The English couple led most times in deciding game but couldn't keep the momentum at the end.
