    PraveenMelati led ZhengHuang 20-17 in AE.. they have been blowing their chances.

    Cant believe they are the top 2 pairs that will lead INA for years to come. should go and look themselves in the mirror and ask why it happened.. It was just like WahyuAde but they arent the No 1 pair of the country.

    Most INA players suffer from this. If you want to be the top player, you shouldn't choke. The top INA players like AG, minions, and the others don't suffer from this fate.

    Yeah have never seen kevin blown something like this, only miracle comebacks. of course it happened many times with fajri too.

    One explanation is i think when they reach 20, their minds wander around. Without Natsir, it will have happened a lot with Ahmad too. Its nothing about luck or bad luck.

    The situation last night with JC is 50:50 and i can accept that, he is AG champion and Ginting has been perfect with his 3 Finals so far so their flaws havent really been seen.

    Welcome to Singapore, where everyone gets treated equally no matter what prestige status or gold medals one's have in their CVs. GOATs? No.1s? WCs? Flush them in toilet because we can't see what values they hold. No one gets special treatment. You have complaints? We give you boos.

    I'd say this match is so untypical of her. In my opinion, she is that good and so too Zheng Siwei, that's why they are consistently WR1 and WC and AG champion.

    Haha, so true. Equality at its best. I guess the top players' CV got stuck in airport whenever they landed to Singapore.:D:p

    What a pity, Akane let this one get away, she should've wrapped it up in two sets. Credit to TTY for maintaining her cool 4 MP down to force the decider where she again had to come from behind to win it.

    Nevertheless, AY really impressed me, as always, not just a fantastic retriever, she can attack well too.

    For a WD match, that was a really short one. Been some time since we saw Koreans in the final.

    Hmm, PVS should be strong favourite. She completely had NO in her pocket the last times they met. In addition, NO is imo not as fast or as endurant as she used to be. Against players like PVS or CYF, who are much taller than her, tactically clever and skillful enough to really send her around court, she's going to suffer quite severly in the future.
    Only thing she's got going for her may be form at the moment.

    I think NO will win cause these two have this jinx of winning and losing one by one tournament...And PVS is also making forced errors so It doesnr seem to be in her favour

    I think Gillian is right PVS has lost the hunger for winning cause she has already gotten so much already that i guess her desire to win is just not as much as it earlier was.

    I guess she just plays now to add a ew more thousand dollars to her billion dollar account.

    I think some WS like TTY and CYF has benefited from Marin absence.

    She couldn't do much in open tournaments last year. Many early round losses.
