Sindhu (IND) v Mia Blichfeldt (DEN) - Ratchanok Intanon (THA) v Gregoria M. Tunjung (INA) MEN'S DOUBLES KNOCK-OUT DRAW WOMEN'S DOUBLES KNOCK-OUT DRAW WOMEN'S SINGLES KNOCK-OUT DRAW MEN'S SINGLES KNOCK-OUT DRAW More intensity finally arrives when all categories moving forward to next round... Mixed doubles, it's highly likely we'll witness all Chinese finals in gold medal match on Friday. The possible plot twist perhaps coming from the dangerous darkhorses WataHiga who could deliver extraordinary feat to overcome their nemesis Wang/Huang despite head-to-head stats isn't encouraging for the Japanese challengers, only won of ten encounters. The Chinese is hungry for the victory after 16-month hibernation, long break absence is nothing for them as indicated by good result so far. Men's doubles, the Minions who're surprised by Lee/Wang in group meet will shift focus to keep their gold medal chance alive, clear favorite to overcome MAS youngsters Aaron Chia/Soh WY as they did in seven previous meetings. Another INA hopefuls, the veterans Ahsan/Setiawan need right tactic once again to topple the energetic and dynamic Kamura/Sonoda who could beat the Daddies on their good day. China towering duo Li/Liu should have no serious trouble to conquer Danish combination Astrup/Rasmussen. Then reigning All England champs Endo/Watanabe against the well-improved Lee/Wang duel probably is the most interesting quarterfinal tie to follow and unpredictable. Women's doubles, Polii/Rahayu have quite favorable draw than fierce competition in bottom half draw where two home pairs plus Chinese top contenders standing together. The Indonesians must maximize their effort to subdue the inconsistent CHN #2 pair Du Y/Li YH. If they could prevail, next opponent should be Lee SH/Shin SC. Nothing impossible for them to enter finale and present first ever women's double medal for INA contingent. Chen/Jia facing tough test after being drawn in competitive group stage, the Chinese duo are challenged by world number one Fukushima/Hirota, the toughest Japanese combination to overcome if we take a look to their stats. Two-time World Champions MatsuNaga meet familiar rival Kim/Kong, the Koreans potential to reach final four considering Japanese pair unconvincing performance in group stage. MS TOP SEED JINX CONTINUES A massive upset is created by Heo Kwang Hee who shocks top contender Kento Momota in two-straight games, 21-15 / 21-19. The Korean displays superb play, composed, exhibiting solid defense combined with sharp attacking smashes where the Japanese star is far from his usual best, less familiar to this KOR underdog game plan and can't anticipate Heo shots well plus host pressure contributing vital role for his unexpected outing. Believe it or not, only one top-seed in this category who could top OG podium, it's Lin Dan in Beijing 2008. *Post match Interview : Some seeded players also falter one by one, Ng Ka Long lost to Guatemala's Kevin Cordon, the man who stunned Chen Long in 2011 London World Championships first round. Kantaphon Wangcharoen also can't pass GBR obstacle Toby Penty. Both Chou Tien Chen and Jonatan Christie have hard times to overcome their valiant opponents, Brian Yang and Loh Kean Yew respectively. The most engaging MS last sixteen tie to pay attention should be two matches that involving Chinese players, defending champion Chen Long will find difficult test in his campaign to defend gold medal, Lee Zii Jia who has transformed into dangerous players, Yonex All England 2021 is true evidence. Shi Yuqi has long time rival Jonatan Christie, these two protagonists experience rollercoaster in their career and seek breakthrough in Tokyo to redeem previous setback. This meeting reminds us for 2018 Asian Games premature encounter when Christie suceeded to the Chinese heart-throb. Women's singles frontrunners start to flex their muscles against more serious threat, Ratchanok Intanon shouldn't underestimate Tunjung despite she's the upperhand in previous meetings. PanAm players Michelle Li, Zhang Beiwen could push their opponent into the limit. Another engaging duel is expected coming from Sindhu-Blichfeldt judging the Dane has significant development and beat Indian in their last encounter.
