CHINA ROUTINE First badminton gold medal goes to China, thanks to their marvelous mixed doubles performance, comeback in international tournament with a bang!

Top-seed Zheng/Huang have relatively easy to topple HKG lefthanded combination Tang/Tse, 21-16 / 21-12. Huang YQ performance is on point to execute fast interception. MINIONS FALTER Major event curse keeps alive, the dominant figures Gideon/Sukamuljo can't answer their big challenge and fail to clear MAS hurdle. Credit to the confident Aaron Chia/Soh WY who play superbly, implementing attacking mode since the beginning of the match to penetrate the quite passive and under pressure, less accuracy Indonesians. Don't see the eagerness, desire to win from the top-seed, mental aspect is suspected. *Post-Match interview Luckily the Daddies did their job when it matters most, overcome the stubborn Kamura/Sonoda in three games, they apply brilliant tactic to outplay the Japanese in final game. Home representative hope in this discipline ended in last eight after Endo/Watanabe can't endure Lee/Wang fierce and aggressive shots. Li/Liu almost blew away their chance to medal quest, pushed into the limit by Astrup/Rasmussen who performing brilliant defense that frustrate Chinese towering duo. NO SURPRISE AT ALL Women's singles present quiet atmosphere, no sensational headline like other categories, all seeded players march on and will showcase enticing action in last eight. Tai TY-Intanon probably the much anticipated tie to wait between two highly talented shuttlers who have similar style of play and deceptive shots. Chen Yufei is challenged by Korean teen star the fearless An Se Young, local hopeful Nozomi Okuhara is predicted to pass He Bingjiao who has not show any stunning progress against foreign top player so far, sluggish and uninspiring when facing Zhang Beiwen. The US player retired in early stages of second game after won 21-14 and 7-9 due to ACL injury. Rio 2016 silver medalist Pusarla Sindhu takes on Akane Yamaguchi, another blockbuster duel to notice, the stats favour to the Indian who trying to redeem her dismal result in this big event. TARGET SLIPS AWAY None of Japanese WD secure final four berth, the category should be JPN stranglehold to deliver gold. This nightmarish result begins when MatsuNaga lost narrowly to Kim/Kong, wasting several match points in decider. Then FukuHiro who can’t present maximum performance, subdued by Chen/Jia in three games. At top half draw, Polii/Rahayu have prospect to get medal after involving in gruelling 97 minutes match against Du/Li and will take on Koreans Lee/Shin. ALL ENGLAND CHAMP OUT Defending champion Chen Long proves his quality for major event, the experience bring the Chinese veteran to progress further. Losing the opening tamely, it’s mental game in second set, Chen stays calm and hold his nerves well at 19-19. Lee ZJ seems frustrated in decider as his illustrious rival start to be more pro active and placing the shuttlecock in difficult position that troubling the lost focus Lee. The supposed to be interesting duel, Jonatan Christie succumbs tamely to the emotionless Shi Yuqi. A flawless net play, good tactic to construct rally, the Chinese takes command in whole match. The underperformed Chtistie looks hopeless, producing numerous mistakes and can’t overcome his nerves. Guatamalan player Kevin Cordon creates history to book quarters spot after defeating Mark Caljouw and meets giant killer Heo Kwang Hee next. Top names, Anthony Ginting and two Danish stars Axelsen, Antonsen safely through into next round.
