All England badminton 2024

Well done to Indonesia for winning 2 titles this year. One is a defending champion. Summaries below. Click on the pink links to see more.

wd. A big upset from Malaysia pair on the Chinese top seed. But the Malaysian did not manage to win the next round and lost to the Japanese 4th ranked pair. Shida did well to enter final meeting the Koreans. They lost to Baek and Lee.

xd. A dream final for top China pair vs Japanese pair. The chinese won it. 

md. The top seed indian pair was upset by Maulana and Fikri. Aaron and Soh did well to beat them in Qtr final. The top Indonesian defending champion did well to beat the Top Taipei pair in Semis who beat the Chinese young pair earlier in tough qtr final. Alfian and Ardianto did well to regain their title they won last year by beating the Malaysians.

ws. A lot of drama here. ASY did well to enter semis but was beaten by Yamaguchi. The rallies were brutal. TTY also did well to beat HBJ who gave a valiant fight even though she was injured. Carolina Marin did very well to beat CYF in 2 games with her awesome speed. In the final, Marin won the match after Yama gave up with a hip injury. Hope it is not too serious. Now we have 5 contenders for the Olympics. Marin, ASY, Yama, CYF and TTY.

ms. Another upset for Viktor again. This time to Ginting who has never beaten him for a long while. There was a controversy about the net tapping from Ginting where Viktor was making a whole lot of noise. LZJ had a good run vs NKL and LKY but lost narrowly to Sen. It is a case of wild power and over confident. In the final, Jojo won by beating Ginting. Jojo also beat SYQ after an injury call. It seems that Jojo have some luck in winning tournaments just like last year. Credit to Jojo for beating Vitid earlier.

2 scary injuries. Yamaguchi and SYQ. Who is next???
