    ^ exactly! They often play half heartedly.
    Of course as aforementioned here, it gives them much needed warm up and gives them some match fitness

    You are right. Based on the just concluded result we can say that both Lee Yong Dae / Lee So Hee are just playing here for fun in the XD events.

    hi hi looks like Jonathan is giving Kenta a badminton lesson. I guess his coach Park Joo Bong must be extremely angry now. Poor boy. Just joking here.

    will the koreans stop playing so many tournaments after the olympic qualification is finalised?

    Wei Nan withdrew. What a pity. I was hoping for another first round exit for LCW

    Jonatan Christie is great, totally beating the 3 years older and also promising Kenta Nishimoto.

    Wow this is going to be another exit for Japanese MS player. This time it was that unknown youngster Chong Yee Han teaching Kenichi Tago how to play badminton today. I guess Park Joo Bong must be extremely furious by now to see his 2 best MS not qualify to play in the fist round or the tournament. Just joking. :p:Do_O

    More likely that KT is self-destructing as usual. He won against Chong Wei Feng earlier (who is about 150 ranks higher than Chong Yee Han) and played a respectable first game now... But as usual he just breaks down completely at some point and loses to an arguably worse player than himself. He just brought it from 16-7 to 21-19 in the third game, further proving my point that if he can keep it together he can easily beat players of this caliber.

    But yes, it is very sad that he keeps doing this. I haven't seen him lately, just looking at the score charts. Judging from them it's presumably an entirely mental thing. The other thing would be stamina, but looking at the comeback in the third game after already playing another three-set match today that doesn't seem as likely as mental issues.

    edit: also, 2 best MS? Kenta and Tago are ranked #4 and #5 Japanese MS respectively... :S

    After second round finished at All England last month, it will be good challenge for him to take on 7th seed Chou Tien Chen tomorrow.

    The qualification was over, beside Christie three local players also secured main draw slot as well, Goh SH, Zainuddin and Chong YH. In WS category, two Bulgarian Nedelcheva & Zetchiri, US shuttler Schafer and Tommy Sugiarto's younger sister, Jauza Fadhilah advanced to next stage.

    ROUND OF 32 Order of Play (08.30am, 4 court) => http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/s...0E6107-082C-4213-9BD3-275899B78F26&d=20160406

    Tomorrow's last tie is scheduled on 11.15pm and most likely it will pass midnight due to delaying/long duration of previous matches.

    Kento Momota, Sho Sasaki, Takuma Ueda, Richii Takeshita, Kenta Nishimoto and lastly Tago who had a free-fall since last year TC.
