QUARTERFINAL (10.00am & 05.00pm) => https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/...A9F3CE-A822-49C8-A58A-BF165D73CB64&d=20200313
Top-seed Chou Tien Chen almost ended his journey in Birmingham yesterday, world number two got second wind after took psychologically important second game in tiring and nail baiting atmosphere, 26-24 to beat the resilient Kanta Tsuneyama, third game was one way traffic, Tsuneyama lost focus and unforced errors came more often. Another Japanese setback Kenta Nishimoto also can't advance further, lost to the aggressive Wang Tzu Wei. Chinese Taipei has assured men's singles semifinal place then Denmark players also did the same way, Anders Antonsen-Rasmus Gemke will face off today.
Lower half draw presents much anticipated match, the Olympic Champion Chen Long will be challenged by the on-fire Malaysia Lee Zii Jia, two-time winner has slight advantage according to positive head to head stats but he should be wary about Lee impressive development since the beginning of 2020. Former World Champion Viktor Axelsen was forced to think hard to dispose Indian rising star Lakshya Sen, 21-17 / 21-18. The Dane is favoured to overcome the shaky Shi Yuqi, a repeat of last year edition semifinal.
Once again defending champion Chen Yufei is China last one standing in women's singles discipline following her compatriot He Bingjiao setback, outlasted by recent Spain Masters champion Pornpawee Chochuwong in three games, 17-21 / 21-18 / 21-12. China brings six players to All England but their level of play still far from world's elite, only Chen who's improving fastly and talking much in international arena. All women's singles quarter clashes will be played on Court 1 that expecting high quality matches at stake, Chen opposes the in-form Ratchanok Intanon, Basel world championships rerun between Nozomi Okuhara versus Pusarla Sindhu, Carolina Marin takes on Akane Yamaguchi and two-time winner Tai Tzu Ying faces Thai darkhorse Chochuwong.
Men's doubles top contenders stay in the fray, the Minions will find tricky challengers Aaron Chia/Soh WY who have big ambition to score first ever victory over fancied opponent. Meanwhile Ahsan/Setiawan have third Japanese combination in a row, completed rubber games twice in previous rounds, they'll be tested by Endo/Watanabe. 2016 champion Ivanov/Sozonov enjoy their good day in All England, tackle Japan number one Kamura/Sonoda in close contest. Two more seededs tumbled, China twin towers Li JH/Liu YC continue dismal performance, can't pass teammates Huang KX/Liu C whilst Alfian/Ardianto were outclassed by home hopefuls Ellis/Langridge.
Nothing big surprise to deny women's doubles scenario, all regular pairs fill last eight line-up, Korea and Japan have three representatives each while China will banking on Chen/Jia and Du Y/Li YH to keep their momentum alive in this prestigious event. The Chinese have heavyweight opponents to progress, the Olympic Champion Mastutomo/Takahashi and two-time World Champions Matsumoto/Nagahara respectively.
The Netherlands duo Tabeling/Piek lost words how to express sensational winning over the best mixed doubles pair in the world Zheng SW./Huang YQ in two straight games yesterday, 22-20 / 21-17. It's not too big surprise if we looked the World Champions performance in opening round against the Indian pair, lack of usual finest touch. Chance for the number two pair Wang/Huang to prove themselves, out of their compatriots shadow, Jordan/Oktavianti will provide stern test for the Chinese. A delightful news for home fans to expect more as Ellis/Smith deliver excellent feat so far, outplay Watanabe/Higashino, 21-15 / 21-10 and will up against HKG southpaws Tang CM/Tse YS next.

Yes, had she beat Intanon in that WC having match points, she will have beat YeoJM and won a bronze in WC. since she never get to 1 Superseries SF, getting a bronze in WC wont be too bad.
Ws today will be very tough
prediction for tonight
MARIN over akane
PVS over Nozomi
TTY over Pornpawee
CYF over RAT
Damn they put daddies vs yuta/endo on court 2
doesn’t matter it will be way past midnight anyway...i can’t stay up that late...still need.to work tomorrow
oh wait i stand corrected....it’ll be close to morning so maybe i should sleep earlier
LZJ might hardly able to make to SF as CL is standing his way, so I predict it would be hard fight between them and the score might get to 30-29, 29-30, 30-29
This is where WS is really competitive if all 8 (7 this tournament) face each other in a QuarterFinals..
But as you can see, its quite hard for the seeded to lose before QF.
CM definitely CYF? I'll give the edge to PVS. The birthday girl NO today is no pushover in these conditions must focus on that first
QF matches are geo-blocked now in AU?
Yes it is. Just tried it with VPN and it appeared.
Where can we see court 2?
any link for PraMel match?
LZJ looks completely transformed. Much patient, calmer and better at net.
Praveen not unleashing his smashes like yesterday..
should pair butet with praveen..... melati is ridiculous
