    Akane Smile-a-guchi! Both she and Viktor dominant since switching to 100ZZ.

    Put both AY and CYF playing single court will have trouble matching up to VA. But would be interesting :) VA would look terrible smashing those two.

    Nah, there is still a difference between male and female game. But I can bet that Yama will kick Momo's ass. :D

    but its kinda saat you see ChristinaPedersen/Juhl/FischerNielsen and then Boe/Mogensen and its whittled away one by one.

    I mean you can say MS is the biggest discipliine way way more than others and its ok if there is a replacement in MS but i cant see that. I dont know whos the new talent because its basically gone in MD WD XD.

    AY was giving CYF a taste of her own medicine, retrieving/returning all of her opponent’s shots and also making her opponent run around the court.

    For today, she came out victorious in three close games.

    Higashino needs to play better. She played so well in the first set of the AE, and that's a huge reason why Higashino and Watanbe won the AE. Not a good first half for the first set for Higashino.

    Arisa lacks soft touch at the front court, a lot of time she really just need to block the shuttle but instead she tried to kill it and they got countered.

    They are concentrating on Higashino. She’s not controlling the net.

    Chinese coach just told ZSW to slice the smashes as the Japanese are standing way back at the court… could be 1 of the key things that determines the outcome

    Substandard defense from Watanabe in this first set. The Watanabe in the first set is not the same Watanabe that had rock solid defense against the Minions when Watanabe/Endo were beating the Minions at the AE.

    And Higashino, just an overall bad first set from her.
