    WITNESS LEGENDS BEGIN!
    The unusual circumstances precede All England 2020 that loomed by the uncertainty of either cancellation, postponement or other scenarios following rapid rise COVID-19 outbreak spread in Europe where German Open is one of casualties which initially scheduled on previous week in Mulheim an Der Ruhr. This oldest badminton tournament decides to go ahead as planned. Will the All England champion become the omen for upcoming Tokyo Summer Olympic Games gold medal?

    NEW CHAMP ON THE CARDS
    Men’s singles highlights the absence of its prominent figure, two-time world champion, world number one and title holder, Kento Momota who has no choice other than must skips this prestigious event due to eye surgery that impacted by car accident on 13th January 2020. A bright prospect for a series of top echelons to snatch one of most wanted badminton titles on Sunday. World number two Chou Tien Chen has flop result in last several tournaments, big question whether this 30 years old Taiwanese could regain his best when it matters most in Birmingham. Danish poster boy Viktor Axelsen did fantastic job in final 2019 and is expected to reproduce same feat once again, spurred by his successful recently to defend Spain Masters title. The rejuvenated Anthony Ginting is under the spotlight, thanks to terrific display since late last year and will be highly expected to break the jinx for Indonesia in this discipline, more than two decades ago when Haryanto Arbi clinched his second AE, back to 1994. China outlook is quite dim to celebrate another glory here, practically will banking on the reigning Olympic Champion Chen Long who exhibits ups and downs, fluctuating performance in last 12 months meanwhile 2018 champion Shi Yuqi also far from ideal form, struggling to make strong comeback post injury layoff. Other contenders in the fray based on seeding position, Anders Antonsen, Jonatan Christie and Ng Ka Long, the latter shows impressive development in most recent tournaments to catch up with world’s elite.

    NO CLEAR FAVOURITE
    China new leader Chen Yufei has complicated task in her campaign to replicate sensational victory last year, facing Korean teen star An Se Young at very early round. Women’s singles offers more complexion theory, title contention is wide open and offering unpredictable script. Xie Xingfang is the last player who created hat-trick (2005-2007) in contemporary era, describing how competitive and larger pool of talents in this category since then. Former champions Tai Tzu Ying, Carolina Marin, Nozomi Okuhara among the top candidates alongside other potential high profile names Ratchanok Intanon, reigning World Champion Pusarla V. Sindhu. A cruel and intriguing opening round will pit two All England runner-ups, Akane Yamaguchi (2018 edition) versus Indian vast experienced player Saina Nehwal (2015).

    CHASING NUMBER THREE
    Suffered shocking outing last year, crashed out directly in opening day to the now-defunct Chinese pair Liu Cheng/Zhang Nan, the Minions will reshoot another All England title this weekend. The undisputed world number one pair look slow down little bit at the moment, pressure mounting ahead Tokyo Olympic Games as their ultimate target. Another Indonesian trump cards, the evergreen Daddies will enjoy their match in Birmingham, stay away from huge pressure to defend their crown, a string of possible Japanese hurdles spreading from opening to last eight round. No one can halt Indonesia domination in men's doubles top position since 2017 edition and these top two pairs will seek third All England title.

    NEIGHBORS RIVALRY
    Repetitive winner, less competitive often resounding women’s doubles landscape that most times to witness China, Japan, Korea pairs in centre stage. China is back gradually to reclaim hegemony in this discipline, most significant signal is delivered by their biggest talents Chen/Jia despite the world number one duo still have instabilty trend to face familiar foes from Japan and Korea who powered by more than two strong pairs that creating internal competition between them who will proceed to Tokyo 2020. Top European combination, Stoeva sisters will be first stern test for the defending champions before stepping up into higher intensity starting from quarterfinal. Outside of the household names, Polii/Rahayu who look regain fine touch should not be ruled out considering their brilliant feat in Jakarta last January and pocketed Spain Masters title recently.

    ANY OTHER PLOT?
    Mixed doubles should provide the best chance for home players to steal the show, Ellis/Smith will be the main arsenal to emulate Robertson/Emms memorable victory in 2005. But an uphill task for local favourites to break Chinese solid walls, the near invincible Zheng/Huang and Wang/Huang who had great start in 2020 opening tour, unstoppable in MAS and INA Masters, undisrupted by any other participants. Interesting to wait whether All England 2020 could present different story, huge surprise at the end as both frontrunners experienced tough journey last year, the eventual champion almost sent packing by Jordan/Oktavianti while their teammates semifinal spot were denied by Malaysians Goh SH/Shevon Lai.

    JC looks like he has patience disorder. Silly mistakes coming from nowhere and so much sweat.

    I can see it (court 1) on BBC iPlayer but not on BWF YouTube - guess it's because I'm in the UK.

    I wish there was an easy way to find out where I can actually watch it being streamed. It's not available on Youtube for me, nor is it available where they streamed Indonesia or something like that earlier. Annoying. -

    Edit; And I found it. I would rather not pay 40 Euro per month since I can do without all the rest that online service channel is offering.

    It's due to the angle but drops from the camera end always look a bit loose and kill-able to me, anyone else?

    Also, An Se Young stands quite deep when receiving serve.

    OMG! An Se Young was playing like Momota! The top 10 WS must be lucky because Olympic is very close.

    Just imagine that An Se Young have 1 more years to train and take experience from tours 750+. How far she can go.

    The other players the top 10 will have another year of experience too. ASY probably has higher chance while she is still the underdog.
