    if she played those first 2 matchs, it would be good for her to be familiar with top competition again
    she only play last match, it's for easy earning ranking points and hide tactics against top players

    both understandable. But why spain bring 12 players and only use 6? Note that rivas still coaching marin but not spanish team anymore

    She said that she is only 60% now . Probably, that could be the reason for avoiding certain players whom she feel she could not beat with her current level. She said that she will be 100% during world championships.

    Also playing on slippery/moist floors isn't particularly helpful and may lead to yet another injury

    INA decides to field the players it has yet to field for the tie against JPN. Good change of strategy since QF is the maximum they can qualify for, unless they create an upset tomorrow if pitted against THA or KOR.

    UBER CUP, it goes to the script as CHN & THA top group B and C respectively.
    The Danes made home players run for their money yesterday who had chance to contribute winning point through WD1, Fruergaard/Thygesen but unfortunately missed the momentum in second game. Chochuwong also Busanan as well looked under pressure, losing one game before vanquish their stubborn rival.

    Meanwhile Chinese Taipei almost denied the mighty China clean sheet victory, it was second singles match which stole the show. A mental test for He BJ to experience scary escape against TPE lesser-known Sung SY, luckily the Chinese calmed down, more patient in rallies and releases lethal smash at right time in late stage of final game as her opponent has good defense and decent net shots. He was trapped in slow pace tempo game that involving tiring rallies and triggering to produce unforced errors, lack of patience and rushing to attacking.

    Japan is clear favourite to overcome INA B team whilst a more exciting tie will pit KOR v IND particularly singles department, both Kim GE & Sim YJ are beatable and no impossible for Indian young aspirant to spring upset here.

    Marin is commendable. Nobody ever came back strong like she did after her first surgery. She again came back for another run. It is unbelievable. Her love for the game is outstanding

    From 13-8 to 15-21. Mental block for PVS against the young korean sensation? H2H records playing too heavy on her head?

    One moment she's stamping her authority next, it's timid shadow of her.

    Yamaguchi looked dazed and confused from the start. Repeatedly misjudging the drift. And falling for the same deceptions over and over. Not sure if she’s injured or just burned out from all the recent tournaments but she hasn’t looked in top form as of late…

    Prasista, 18 years old girl, her father is former Indonesian MS, Joko Suprianto and her mother is former Indonesian WD , Zelin Resiana.
    Together with Komang Dewi, they are a glimmer of hope from the current women's singles sector for Indonesian fans.

    Upset by Bilqis Prasista in beating the World No. 1 Akane Yamaguchi in 2 tight-sets 21-19, 21-19. Not that the Japanese will take this seriously though.

    Meanwhile, WD1 Melanie Mamahit/Tryola Nadia also work hard in keeping the scoreline tight.

    Shocking display from these fearless INA's ladies, forcing the Japanese WD1 to a rubber-set now. And they are not even first pick.

    maybe they already had selection trials but Marin wasn’t part of it.

    It’s good she has avoided the slippery floor.

    For a coach as experienced as Kai Nakajima, it sure took a long time to figure out the winning strategy against this INA WD pair who have hard clean shots but limited court mobility.

    The JPN WD pair played so terribly sloppy…just glad to see such a crap quality match finally over.

    Japan had a subjective mentality when looking at the Indonesia squad that will play today.
