    Now I can witness LCW's R1 exit with a good angle.

    Pretty soon by 2019/2020 it'll be a top-down view, all you see of the players are the top of their heads:p

    PK can't defeat LDK? F* frustrating. Time to retire old man. Or is he there just to give company to SN during travel days :p

    I think Lee Dong Keun is massively underrated on these forums.

    Every time he loses, he has an excuse and MOST IMPORTANTLY, withdraws from the next tournament. Becoming the Milos Raonic of Badminton World it seems.

    Yes, Chen Long is in good form. So what? Go ahead and face him.

    Well, it's an infection and it is a valid excuse. No problem here.

    Ong/Tan finally won against a good MD pair.

    Odd. For a top 10 player to have such a bad H2H against a player outside the top 20.

    Yeah, he already beat:
    - Srikanth Kidambi
    - HS Prannoy
    - Brice Leverdez
    - Ng Ka Long
    - Jonathan Christie
    - Son Wan Ho
    - Lee Hyun Il

    Surprisingly.

    Well, after CL vs SK didn't happen at HK SS, it's now CL vs VA also impossible to watch here.

    So, It would be disappointing for some supporters

    I think it's a clear message from Kenneth...not to engage with Chen Long again anytime soon. I was really hoping to see Axelsen- Srikanth in the French Open but he withdrew and now no rematch of CHN open final which was eagerly anticipated,

    Aha. I get your feeling boys.
    It is a shame that we cannot see a high-profile match in these few past tournaments. Hope they can show up at Dubai at least.

    Nowhere does he mention anything about losing on Sunday because of that toe infection. On the contrary he's said to multiple Danish media that "he simply lost to a better player". He's not making up any excuse for the loss in his instagram post, he's simply explaining why he can't play in HK.

    Viktor has struggled with injuries and other problems his entire career. Nothing suspect in playing through minor injuries for the big events such as Premier Superseries and then pulling out of the minor ones. It made sense for French Open to prepare better for China Open and it makes sense this time, to prepare better for Dubai.

    Implying he's scared of playing anyone is just hilarious. He's taken part in more events than all of Lin Dan, Lee Chong Wei, Chen Long and Srikanth this year. Actually now I think of it - it's not hilarious, it's disrespectful.
