    Hmmm... she has hit a slump at a time when the schedule is getting tighter. As far as Japan's national team A is concerned, after Korea, there's another training camp, then the Denmark and French Open, to be followed by another training camp, then the Fuzhou China and the Hong Kong Open; and finally in late November, the domestic highlight - the All Japan Championships. ... All in the space of two months.

    It has got to be tough..., and any problems will probably be aggravated by the various challenges currently faced by Yamaguchi's corporate badminton team: Saishunkan.

    Marin made it to the final in 3 games.

    Those who played in both AG team and individual events are struggling physically. How did Ginting win all his matches in 3 games in this tournament?

    I'm afraid Chen Yufei will do worse than Nozomi, probably a two-straight-set loss, no close fight.

    Both Sayaka Takahashi and Nozomi Okuhara did well to take a set off Marin each.

    Momota and Ginting played so many matches. The funny thing is they are the one in the Finals. Maybe its better to play more but Ginting's matches are so much more gruelling. That AG final against SYQ, still cant believe how he recover from that and be stronger? Its like nothing can go worse than that.

    Of course, Lin Dan. LCW has proven it. A premature question at this time, should pose it a few years later.

    That's timid of you Justin haha. Come On, its not easy to beat Chinese players at their turf. Even Gao can push Marin, i'm sure CYF have as good chance as anybody. What moret this is badminton Single's match , anything can happen.

    In any case, there are good chances China can break duck in WS and MD. When was the last time China WS won Superseries?

    Momota, without a doubt. Who else could possibly get from zero rank/zero points to World Ranking No. 1 in the space of one year and two months? :D

    Zhang/Li were dominating G1.
    I guess Wang/Huang were spent last night against the Danes.

    Go Zhang Nan!!

    Li Yinhui is one lucky girl, benefiting so much from Zhang Nan's guidance and mentorship. Even her WD game is improving significantly.

    Just now looking at Lee Chong Wei's ranking history: He dropped as far as rank No. 180 during his suspension, if that's what you mean. Momota's BWF ranking and points were, according to BWF regulations, completely erased because he was absent from competition for more than one year.
