    nope. it's a great rule. the absence of ambiguity is always better in sports.

    Yep, especially when the replay showed Marin serving from chest height every time she was faulted. The service judge was spot on.

    Hopefully Adcocks can do better this year.
    Last year was heartbreaking, meeting the in-form Lu/Huang.

    SWH also has something to prove in this tournament, against the chaser Kenta Nishimoto.

    Watanabe/Higashino's performance in Sudirman 2017 was impressive.

    Can they do well today?

    I thought she has a dislike for Marin? I got the impression she was rooting for Yamaguchi all the way.

    Rooting for them as well. That was a cracking classic of an XD match they had last year.
