    Next up on Court 1, Ha Jung Eun/Kim Min Jung vs. Shizuka Matsuo/Mami Naito [7]. The Japanese are ranked 10th in the world, while the Koreans are ranked 28th. However, the head to head record is 3-0 in favor of the Koreans, with the last victory registered at the 2011 German Open.

    She's shorter and about 6 years older. Bae Youn Joo is the darker baby-faced one [​IMG].
    Sung Ji Hyun seems to have gotten her energy back. She was looking lethargic for some months.

    I was going to put in a last second PAW on the korean WD after watching the warmup on court 2 but I've already picked enough and only picked "sure" ones ... Wasn't sure who I saw in the German Open but looks like one of them is in the pairing this time around :D

    You replied too quickly before I could add baby-faced [​IMG]. Bae Youn Joo isn't THAT tall, LOL.

    I might be wrong, but I think it's Court 1, not Court 2. Courts 1&2 on the swissopen website = Court 1 on TS, while Courts 3&4 = Court 2, from different angles.

    Anyway, this KOR WD pair defeated this JPN pair at the German Open.

    Haha was just thinking something wasn't right there. Ji Hyun v Youn Joo is a tonguetwister all by itself already :rolleyes:
    Guess you could call it Sung vs Seung ;)

    Yes "Court 1" = "Court 2" cam and actual Court 2 at the start (of the tournament) ...

    This has to be the revenge for Linda's loss.
