    it is a tall order for Ihsan to beat JOJ. He is going to play catch-up in every step of the match.

    KS is out. I wonder what happened to him? He simply need to have different training regime to revive his lost form.

    He can be given the job as a 陪训员( full time sparring partner) for the juniors. No coaching job for him. How can he motivate his charges when he can't even motivate himself all these years. Just joking.

    I am told that Malaysia is going through a very hot and dry spell. If the arena is not air-conditioned the temperature inside can easily touched 35 to 37C. Players from cold countries will be badly affected.

    Meanwhile THW is losing his plot in G2.

    He Bingjiao's inconsistency is an issue, her lack of experience in the senior circuit told; after all she is only barely a year into the senior level full-time and hadn't played enough tournaments, only a handful of low level ones, during her junior days. I should think it's normal to have ups and downs at the beginning of her career at the senior level - if only she had started competing in the senior circuit much earlier at a younger age like most of her peers.

    In the match with Sindhu, her more experienced opponent was keeping the shuttle down and/or playing fast flat drives all the time, only lifting when necessary or forced to, which time and again forced HBJ to lift, and Sindhu was ready to quickly get behind the shuttle and pounced on it. Besides, HBJ was more error-prone today than usual, another weakness of hers that needs rectifying.

    Not to worry, HBJ is a smart, thinking player, she'll get it right the next time they meet. As HBJ matures- I consider her quite mature for her age - her rise to seriously challenge the top players won't be far off, rather pretty soon.

    Strange, I seem to see an aggressive streak in Wang Shixian today playing Mitani Minatsu now.

    Also JOJ mentioned the excessive drift in this stadium during his practice sessions. Maybe foreign players not used or familiar with the conditions here , esp the young and inexperienced ones, may have some difficulty coping.

    Meanwhile Tian Houwei is also having a roller coaster ride except that he is the one staying on course in the rubber set.

    As Zwiebler mentioned last year (when I remember correctly):"The drift is so strong, we could also play outside - makes no difference". :D
