    She is still being plagued by the thigh muscle injury that was sustained in April, and forced her to drop out of the Badminton Asia Championships. She hasn't made a full recovery yet. The injury could actually be contributing to her weight problem.

    Marcus/Kevin won their first match in this tournament. Not back in their top form yet, but hopefully they are getting there. Strange to say this, but they need more match experiences lol. I need to see Kevin doing his stupid antics.

    And the KOR pair was doing so well too. Not as experienced as the Thai pair yesterday, but they looked promising.

    I hope not a 3-2. Jonatan is pretty reliable and Ahsan/Hendra can close it out. Finger crossed!!

    Let go off this Kevin/Gideon thing. It should be a one off day for this talented youngsters. Leave it as it is and let us move forward.

    She is nursing an injury due to stupid camp. JPN WD are above everybody that it is more than enough to beat THA or CHN

    Maybe sending scratch pairs against the minions isn't a bad idea after all..

    Is Jonathan getting much fitter now?

    Jonatan hand is too heavy thats why he cant smash hard.

    If he can smash like LCW , he would be perfect specimen.

    Being second single could be a blessing in disguise. He still holds the key to the tie most of the time.

    Cant agree more. Super annoying to not be able to review it cleanly from the right angle...

    ThomasCup Draw will be much more exciting if Indonesia finish 2nd in the group.

    Wow JPN beats TPE 5-0, that's a little unexpected... but the 3Ks looks like the most dependable selection of MS for the knock-out round: Kenta, Kento & Kanta.

    This Korea is not strong in MD. It is a blessing if INA can win on top of the group to avoid CHN or JPN in qtr final
