Congratulations to all the winners. This time, Yonex wins them all. Below are the noteable mentions.
xd. Zheng and Huang won all their matches in 2 games. Amazing. Similar to ASY a week ago. Thai xd pair upset by china Dong.
wd. The Korean pair did well to beat the aging Japanese pair. They also upset the top seed chinese pair in semis. Fuku upset Apriani in Qtr final.
ws. Yamaguchi was upset by Ratchanok in Qtr surprisingly. Carolina did the same to TTY. Chen YF did well to beat the red hot ASY denying her a hattrick. CYF did well to finish off Marin in 2 games. Marin was leading 6 points in g2 before losing. Aging or tired?
md. Alfian top seed dissappointed again losing to the champion indian pair in qtr finals. Liang was upset by Rambitan.
Rambitan made a mistake by trying to finish off Aaron in 2 games. They did not and tires themselves in the 3rd game. Wrong strategy. Too young or eager to win perhaps.
Aaron was on form until they reached the final and lost to the Indian pair. Too tired or they tried something new to lose the game. Still waiting for the to win an at least s750 tournament like lky. Aaron smash is better now but must maintain his weights. Else, it will go down the drain again.
ms. Lzj lost miserably to Sen. He was in no mood to play at all. He will take a small break. Lky did well against local boy Chico. Again, he lost to LSF next round. Not many players can last now days.
Naraoka managed to beat syq in 3 games. lsf was no match for ginting. Crowd factor perhaps. Hats off to Viktor again to hold his fort to beat homeboy Ginting. I notice ginting seems to have issues playing Viktor. Even home crowd can't help Ginting. Viktor is now 11 to 4 vs Ginting for Head to Head stats.
