    Hooray! Minions win. They alreay break their own record last year with 8 WT titles. The match is one sided though. Kevin in the front of the net is just scary.

    Thanks to Boe/Mo, Kim/Lee and Ahsan/Hendra to make minions worked so hard before this match I supposed.
    Now they are releasing their pent up energy for not being able to score easily in previous matches.
    Last tour tournament for them. Good luck for the WTF

    Great tournament overall. I guess Japan will stay as overall winner in this World Tour this year. I hope INA can surpass CHN in the total WT titles this year.

    And more importantly, they did it in slower playing conditions. Impressive how they have improved their game compared to what they had had in Nanjing this year.

    I'm happy to see their improvement in the defense. not only it's really hard to penetrate but they knew when the right time to play a counter attacking shot. tactically they're getting better.

    A big win for Japan to scoop three titles of five finals, Fukushima/Hirota are expected winner to eliminate Korean challengers Lee/Shin despite having bad start at the beginning. The world number one pair have better tactical play, more variation shots to neutralize their opponent powerful smashes. The victory trend infects to second match when Nozomi Okuhara played superbly to edge out the error-proned Ratchanok Intanon, thanks to Okuhara excellent retrieving skill to answer Thailand ace some deceptive shots. Mixed doubles saw world number two the under pressure Wang/Huang couldn't exploit their real strength instead of being dictated by the confident Watanabe/Higashino. Without their dependable hotshots Zheng/Huang, it's hard for China to clinch title.

    In men's singles clash, it is Son Wan Ho who made blunder at the opening game, leading 10-2 then losing focus and Kenta Nishimoto scores 12 straight points to turn the tables, 10-14. Luckily, former world number one produced strong comeback in second and third game, he regains 2014 HKG Open crown with the big highlight here, defeating Kento Momota in thrilling semifinal duel. Last but not least, an anti-climax to close the curtain, Gideon/Sukamuljo destroy the Japanese duo Kamura/Sonoda in shortest duration of final day. What a record & extraordinary performance, 8 titles in BWF world circuit of this year!

    Syed Modi International Super 300 and Scottish Open Super 100 will be next tournaments to follow where we can know the complete list of Guangzhou Finals qualifiers.
