    Lu/Kai always finds a way to rise from losing the first set countless time already.
    I won't be surprised if the can win this one.

    SJH lacks 'it' factor like Marin. She doesn't have any edge although she is good in controlling shots, kinda like SWH.

    My predictions:
    WS: Hope my dear TTY wins, and in style!
    MS: Meh, can't decide! BSP has a lot to gain and KS has a lot to lose, because as someone said, they are Indian sportstars (fame+money).
    XD: The Thais seem to be losing control at the moment...
    MD: Hope to see BoMo win - 3 times the match experience and 12-15years elder :)

    All seem equally matched. In Mulhouse though, we have a lot more diversity and some of the most promising youngsters. A good Sunday, all in all!

    I want MD to be back to their prestigious era where all pair have their own style.
    It is no fun to see all pair playing flat game all the time.

    Strange. Misaki stopped moving her fingers while serving like I previously noticed. :D

    Misaki has two service faults. That's a sign. Ayaka playing good defence.

    XD must be the most boring sector now dominated by one country.

    Wonder why no one utilises that shot to the middle when Juhl is at the left side and CP is at the right? That proved to be effective...

    This is arguably the best WD can offer currently and yet it's so boring I might shift to watch some fanfiction series.
    Let's go CP finish it already ~ MS calling
    Although I wanted MM to win, sorry lady looks like here we depart :p

    I think Praneeth will prevail over Srikanth today.

    Japanese pair got some very telling body language when they are losing, much like SJH. Danes are having fun playing atm.

    Marin - Tai TY, they are of the same class, you don't beat players at your level all the time. Marin may get one back today.

    I'm happy with the WS top seeds overall.. If they perform at this level consitently It's not going to be long before we forget Xuerui, Shixiang, Yihan. Wish to see RI and Saina winning more, although the latter part may be just wishful thinking at this stage.

    Has any singles player successfully moved to doubles AFTER becoming a top ranker?

    nice rally!
    M/T got a couple chances to convert during the rally, but falling behind.
    Are they going to move back to the power game this next point?

    Yet another title for the Danish aunties, I've always admired how CP can do double duty at this age and still be so consistent
