    Couldn't catch Satwik/Ashwini. Too lazy to watch the replay
    Anybody can comment on the match? The scoreline is ... Bad, to be polite.

    Looks like EllisLangridge has a good chance of advancing to final consecutively. No matter what, they are SS champs now. Everyone can dream.

    The Indian challenge stops at round 2 with all players either losing or retiring. Though not surprising, the manner in which they lost is concerning.
    With the exception of Chirag/Satwik all other players looked rusty.
    Especially surpried with Sindhu's early exit, despite her stint in London for "nutrition and recovery".

    Hoping for a better performance next week.

    LeoDaniel not hanging around, and duly dispatch their seniors FajarRian (maybe this is the start of regenaration) for their 1st SS QuarterFinal. Whether its S1000/SSP, i dont think they are that much different but you can say thats their 1st SSP/S1000 as well.

    I think people will always be excited for young stars to emerge. If they are truly good, i'm sure they can reach the Final.

    Apparently their opponents (Lamsfuss and Herttrich) were close contacts with the German coach who tested positive for COVID-19. BWF still let the German pair play, but Tang/Tse got advise from HK side saying they should give walkover as a safety precaution. I think BWF needs to address this point better... should have made the German pair withdraw if they were close contact with a positive case

    MD picks for tomorrow

    Goh/Izzudin
    Ellis/Langridge ( should be too strong for LeoDaniel)
    OngTeo
    AhsanHendra (tough match vs cunning Korea pair, can go either way)

    MD is the sector where the 1st time winner of SS is most likely to happen ( its about 50% chance). Also by ensuring fairplay, INA might only have 1 MD pair in WTF. cracking!.

    OngTeo might be hard, TPE Wang/Lee getting stronger than expected, especially Wang, win one point, shout one time, this kind of passion confirm they can win a match...

    QUARTERFINALS (11.00am) => https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/...541B33-2037-4644-A541-EDA77A870CE1&d=20210115

    *MATCH HIGHLIGHTS*
    - Rasmus Gemke (DEN) v Anthony Ginting (INA)
    - Viktor Axelsen (DEN) v Jonatan Christie (INA)
    - Lee Zii Jia (MAS) v Chou Tien Chen (TPE)
    - Tai Tzu Ying (TPE) v Michelle Li (CAN)
    - An Se Young (KOR) v Ratchanok Intanon (THA)
    - Lee Y/Wang CL (TPE) v Ong YS/Teo EY (MAS)
    - Choi SG/Seo SJ (KOR) v Ahsan/Setiawan (INA)
    - Puavaranukroh/Taerattanachai (THA) v Chan PS/Goh LY (MAS)
    - Lamsfuss/Herttrich (GER) v Gicquel/Delrue (FRA)
    • It's practically going to the predictable scenario, DEN vs INA duels at men's singles top-half, Anthony Ginting will take on Rasmus Gemke, a replay of All England 2020 first round when the Indonesian suffered shocking exit in Birmingham last year. Axelsen-Christie showdown will be a mouth watering quarterfinal clash tomorrow. Ginting conquers Thailand promising star Kunlavut Vitidasarn, thanks to his experience, turned the tables at crucial stages in second game. Similar fashion also demonstrated by Viktor Axelsen to overcome Thai leading man Kantaphon Wangcharoen.
    • One hit wonder for giant-killer Liew Daren here as the Malaysian fails to stem Hong Kong prospect Lee Cheuk Yiu in two straight games. Lee will take on World #8 Ng KL who involved in gruelling battle to down Wang Tzu Wei. The rapid rise Lee Zii Jia earns free ticket due to Kidambi Srikanth suffers right calf muscle injury and challenges Taiwanese top gun Chou Tien Chen for a place in semifinal, nothing impossible for the eighth seed to topple Chou.
    • Women's singles last eight will focus on two enticing ties, top-seed Tai Tzu Ying seems starting to find her formula in this tournament will be tested by Michelle Li. Then home darling Ratchanok Intanon meets tough task to tackle, Korean new sensation An Se Young. Carolina Marin has no problem to avenge her defeat in Spain last year over Pornpawee Chochuwong with impressive scoreline this time.
    • MAS has most number of representatives in men's doubles quarterfinals, one semifinal spot has been secured. Top-rated match will see The Daddies facing Koreang tricky tests, Choi SG/Seo SJ. INA never stops to produce fresh talent in this category, 2019 World Junior Champions Carnando/Marthin surprise Alfian/Ardianto and set up a meething with Rio OG bronze medalists, Ellis/Langridge.
    • Thailand favourites Puavaranukroh/Taerattanachai look struggling and quite off-form at the moment, the prominent duo will meet third Malaysian opponents, Chan PS/Goh LY. Interesting landscape in lower half of mixed doubles draw, Jordan/Oktavianti are encircled by three European pairs. DEN Open Champs Lamsfuss/Herttrich will see French youngsters Delrue/Gicquel who scored really inspiring result early 2020.

    Is this the 1st Axelsen vs JC meet since Axelsen squandered that 20-12 lead somewhere in FrenchOpen?

    isn't everyone curious as to why bwf/bat/thai health authorities are ok with letting high risk players continue?

    if this is indeed the case they owe the hk players compensation for allowing a known high risk hazard to interfere with their continuing ability to compete safely. it is a breach of contract reneging on the promise to conduct a safe tournament. it is blatant negligence.

    Its QF day..

    Looks like the only upset that has value is ChristiansenBoje (5.20). Pramel is given too much respect here, rating it as 55:45 match. Also Ginting is given more respect at low 1.30ish despite losing his last match against Gemke.

    GohTan and EllisLangridge is priced as favourites so i'm sure at least 1 of that match will have , well i wouldnt call it an upset just a different results. Other upsets like TTY vs Li Michelle & GreysAp , looks difficult to happen.

    that's such a shame.
    Michelle Li looked really strong against sung (very physical match), didn't see tty play but tty would need to be in top form to beat li.

    Looks like youtube isn't going to show any games on Court #1 and only sticking to #2. Is there any way to see the other games?

    Nevermind they're broadcasting it.
