    CHN WS are a mess -- that why they desperately re-called Li Xuerui back to play 4th WS... but it looks like that's not going to help either?

    INA WS have learnt from JPN and gotten all these short runners with great shots and retrieval ability -- while CHN are stuck with all these tall lanky juniors they selected/trained from Li Yongbo's time by "formula", but none of whom have Li Xuerui's (pre-injury) speed, Wang Yihan's power or Wang Shixian's shot quality.

    I guess nope, Goh JW didn't make any single error in that match, wow!

    CHN v INA, 3-2.
    China scores first two points through the pumped up Chen Yufei who outplays Fitriani, followed by world champion Chen QC/Jia YF eliminate Polii/Rahayu, 21-13 / 21-19, the ending of this match was unexpected. Tailing behind 0-2, Gregoria Mariska shows inspiring fighting spirit to overcome Gao Fangjie, 23-21 / 21-16 and keeps the chance alive for INA camp. Second WD, Huang YQ/Tang JH secure top position for China after tame Haris/Pradipta who push many shots wide despite making great comeback in second game but it's too late to force rubber games. Last match, Ruselli Hartawan steals the show to down 2012 Olympic Champion Li Xuerui, 15-21 / 21-19 / 21-18.

    Your detective/reasoning abilities would lead to a failure of the legal system, not only badminton...

    Was he faulted in All England? No
    Did he serve the same way as in here? Yes
    Did he serve higher than in All England? YES.

    They were obviously not the "formula" adopted by Li Yongbo for junior development around/after London Olympics -- Li Xuerui & Zhang Ning/ Xie Xinfang were.

    Talk so much for what?

    The minions should just beat the KOR newbies to a pulp this afternoon to "prove" how good they are -- I'm sure that will convince everybody (*roll eyes*), LOL...

    Kevin was still clowning around, even right up to the end -- so I don't think he should be upset with people laughing AT him (instead of WITH him)...

    Being MDs on the shorter side (because MDs are so ridiculously tall now), the minions have to run around a bit to make up for their lack of reach -- but now that they have made it into a game/joke of "over-running" their positions to show how fast/invincible they are, can they stop themselves from playing the fool and literally put on the brakes when needed?

    yeah, only mad hatters will think the KOR newbies have any chance against the minions... but I will be glad to be proven wrong by the incredible expertise and acumen of the KOR coaches.

    Jonatan Christie will show up today after resting in two previous ties due to unwell condition, flu and sore throat. Korea fields same singles line-up when they face Thailand on Sunday, Son Wan Ho-Heo Kwang Hee-Ha Young Wong. No many options for Korea except trying the experimental pairs as Kang Min Hyuk injured couple of days ago.

    - THA v CAN (court 4) : https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/sport/matches.aspx?id=0057097B-20D5-4CF4-8E22-7138EE7565DC

    Only opening match will be interesting to watch, Akane Yamaguchi versus Saina Nehwal.

    - CAN v AUS (court 3) : https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/...0057097B-20D5-4CF4-8E22-7138EE7565DC&match=95
    A moment of breakthrough for Canada Women's team to march on to quarterfinal.

    Ginting lost a close one after leading 19-17 in the 1st. This is going to be a long match. He has to close out 2nd fast to save energy for the 3rd.
