Actually busanan needs points for guangzhou. Sindhu is probably in holiday mood right now.
Well. For Wang. They just won a 750 event last week and there is nothing to fight for except for exposure
And their form is not that great. They nearly lost to goh/ chan last week.
I am actually referring to Wang/Huang's performance the whole year, not just explicitly the FCO last week. Anyway, XD is more open now with the loss of Wang/Huang.
Surprisingly WangHuang has same number of titles than ZhengHuang?
You are right in terms of World Tour titles this year. Here is the summary of their overall titles this year.
Zheng/Huang : 6 (1 WC, 3 WT1000, 1 WT750, 1 WT500)
Wang/Huang : 6 (1 BAC, 2 WT750, 2 WT500, 1 WT300)
Overall, Zheng/Huang's titles are more prestigious than Wang/Huang's
Damn... can't watch Lin Dan JC is facing Antonsen yet again. It is going to be tough for JC.

Barring any big upset, the Olympic Champion is slated to meet the on-fire former world champion tomorrow. Chen who has changed his style of play lately, implementing more offensive and tactical pattern than totally defensive all the way had tough times to eliminate Taiwanese Wang Tzu Wei, 18-21 / 21-12 / 21-14 in the quite relax atmosphere like practice session. Viktor Axelsen power pasts Liew Daren and will be challenged by local underdog, Lee Cheuk Yiu who smashes the unfit Shi Yuqi, 21-9 / 26-24, the Chinese practically can't move comfortably, lack of speed to balance his opponent high-paced tempo despite had good chance in second game but still not enough to stem Lee from quarterfinal berth.
On the opposite draw, the last eight landscape is going into the script, two Indonesia frontrunners Jonatan Christie-Anthony Ginting will up against familiar rivals, Anders Antonsen and Chou Tien Chen respectively. Ginting and Chou experience thrilling moment yesterday to turn the tables after losing opening game and almost sent packing early. At the brink of defeat, 17-20 Chou seized crucial second game against Parupalli Kashyap. 23-21 and the momentum was gone for the Indian at deciding game. Similar fashion also surged Jan O Jorgensen who can't keep his winning way in second game.
Reigning World Champion and Korean prodigy setback become headline story in second round women's singles department. Sindhu continues lackluster performance, eliminated by Busanan Ongbamrungphan. The Indian darling often dubbed as major event specialist by most badminton fans, waiting and see her feat in Guangzhou Finals next month. An Se Young going down to third-ranked Indonesian player Ruselli Hartawan surprisingly, the teenager can't figure out well her opponent game plan. Hartawan who cruised into BWF top tier event quarterfinal for the first time will take US seasoned campaigner Zhang Beiwen. The winner of this tie will find Chinese protagonist in semis, Chen Yufei or He Bingjiao meanwhile lower half draw will pay attention for Japan-Thailand affairs.
More higher-ranked pairs tumbled in all three doubles categories, Alfian/Ardianto, Astrup/Rasmussen, Fukushima/Hirota, Kim SY/Kong HY, Wang YL/Huang DP, Jordan/Oktavianti, Chan PS/Goh LY ended their quest in Hong Kong. The most stunning outcome were created by Fruergaard/Thygesen to knock out the powerful duo Kim/Kong, 21-13 / 22-20. The Koreans did well to produce good comeback in second game, 7-16 but failed at the end. Kaneko/Matsumoto also score big upset to down the in-form Indonesians Jordan/Oktavianti who gained limelight for their back to back title in Europe recently. He JT/Du Y rise on the occasion to shock senior teammates Wang/Huang, 21-18 / 21-12.

COURT 1 - Boe/Conrad (DEN) v Ahsan/Setiawan (INA)
Just curious. Anyone can tell me where I can watch court 2?
Boe/conrad just can't do anything against ahsan/hendra
Hendra you're amazing
the daddies telling the world "this is how you play against boe!"
Lmao boe's face after that change of pace by hendra, "are you kidding me bro?"
10th Final possibility for AhsanHendra this year.
OhGeez, without Minions brilliance, they can easily win more than half of those.
Well its SF now , so its another good tournament for AhsanHendra.
Aaron Chia/Soh WY (MAS) v Li JH/Liu YC (CHN)
Simply outstanding performance by the Indonesians to stamp their authority, one way traffic.
Playing like it's an exhibition match and beat them 21-11 21-11, their juniors need to learn a lot from them.
I hope Chia/Soh can break the egg against Li/Liu. Every time they meet each others, the score is always close.
Well, how about minions?
Maybe fajri since they keep losing to this particular pair
