    Like this service judge much better.

    no needless and unnecessary calls.

    Flow to flow no pair can beat minions.

    My view is yesterday service call does not really affect the outcome. Thai pair was playing well, Gideon/Kevin a bit rusty and taking it too light in the beginning.

    It would be proven next time if they meet again. I think it would be another close match. Kevin/Gideon probably would be more ready

    Time to get back into form is what the indo pair needs right now. Matches like this really point out the role of Sulkamuljo in the game: player maker, point achiever. Come on Sulkamuljo get back your exuberant, over-the-top shot!!

    Damn, what an error fest from AY. She really did not deserve to win that one at all. Something I never thought I'd say: Saina looks much fitter than AY. Don't know what they're doing in those prep camps in Japan, but the food seems to be alright.

    What a nervy 3rd gam for SN. Credits to AY for a tight final passage of play

    Neither did Nehwal deserve to win. Her only win condition is unforced errors by opponent and Yamaguchi did more than enough of those.

    One sentence : Nehwal gifted this match to AY. Simple

    Haha. What an analogy: When your opponent is error prone, you don’t deserve to win

    They obviously try to ensure that all participants sprain an ankle, or at least tear a muscle. This is the second time that Yamaguchi has injured herself at this type of camp, much to the joy of her employer, Saishunkan.

    Why is that? To me Nehwal was closer to her best level than Yamaguchi who committed many unforced errors.

    Another injury? What was it this time? They seem to be champions of load control (is that the correct term? It's "belastungssteuerung" in German, meaning controlling training work load to avoid injuries) at the NBA.
    Then again, AY can easily lose 10 pounds imo, which would reduce the risk of injury significantly. It would also almost certainly make her a better player as well. Just look at what TTY achieved when she started to pay attention to nutrition.
