Opening a thread for this 3 Asian series tournaments starting with super 750 in Japan this week followed by super 1000 in China and super 500 in Korea to end with.

Decent start for us today.

Tomorrow's matches-

[R2] (7) KIDAMBI Srikanth (IND,8) vs. WONG Wing Ki Vincent (HKG,27)
[R2] PRANNOY H. S (IND,13) vs. Anthony Sinisuka GINTING (INA,10)

[R2] (3) PUSARLA V. Sindhu (IND,3) vs. GAO Fangjie (CHN,14)

[R1] Satwiksairaj RANKIREDDY / Chirag SHETTY (IND,21) vs. (3) Takeshi KAMURA / Keigo SONODA (JPN,3)
[R1] ATTRI Manu / REDDY B. Sumeeth (IND,28) vs. TAN Wee Kiong / GOH V Shem (MAS,10)

[R2] Pranaav Jerry CHOPRA / REDDY N. Sikki (IND,27) vs. HANG Ye Na / JUNG Kyung Eun (KOR,20)

Srikanth plays Wong whom he lost to in Asian games while Prannoy now plays the Asian games bronze medalists. Sindhu plays a Chinese whom she lost to in their only meeting while our doubles pairs play much higher ranked teams.

Any win by Srikanth nowadays is a pleasant surprise! Hope he wins at least a couple of more rounds here...

Only mens and womens doubles matches are being played today -

[R1] Satwiksairaj RANKIREDDY / Chirag SHETTY (IND,21) l. (3) Takeshi KAMURA / Keigo SONODA (JPN,3) 12-21 17-21
[R1] ATTRI Manu / REDDY B. Sumeeth (IND,28) d. TAN Wee Kiong / GOH V Shem (MAS,10) 15-21 23-21 21-19

[R1] Ashwini PONNAPPA / REDDY N. Sikki (IND,27) l. CHANG Ye Na / JUNG Kyung Eun (KOR,20) 17-21 13-21

Excellent win by Manu-Sumit over a top 10 pair. Expected more fight from Satwik-Chirag but I guess top 5 level pair are still quite a bit ahead of them.

So, we have 3 in singles, 1 in mens doubles and 1 mixed doubles left in second round tomorrow.

Bad day for us as only Srikanth moves thru to the QF.

At DAIHATSU YONEX Japan Open 2018 - Super 750

[R2] (7) KIDAMBI Srikanth (IND,8) d. WONG Wing Ki Vincent (HKG,27) 21-15 21-14
[R2] PRANNOY H. S (IND,13) l. Anthony Sinisuka GINTING (INA,10) 14-21 17-21

[R2] (3) PUSARLA V. Sindhu (IND,3) l. GAO Fangjie (CHN,14) 18-21 19-21

[R2] ATTRI Manu / REDDY B. Sumeeth (IND,28) l. HE Jiting / TAN Qiang (CHN,19) 18-21 21-16 12-21

[R2] Pranaav Jerry CHOPRA / REDDY N. Sikki (IND,27) l. HANG Ye Na / JUNG Kyung Eun (KOR,20) 16-21 16-21

Srikanth took good revenge for his Asian games loss but losses for others although only Sindhu's loss was against lower ranked player.

Next,

[QF] (7) KIDAMBI Srikanth (IND,8) vs. LEE Dong Keun (KOR,33)

Mixed start in China open.

[R1] (7) KIDAMBI Srikanth (IND,8) d. Rasmus GEMKE (DEN,23) 21-9 21-19

[R1] (3) PUSARLA V. Sindhu (IND,3) d. Saena KAWAKAMI (JPN,39) 21-15 21-13
[R1] Saina NEHWAL (IND,10) l. SUNG Ji Hyun (KOR,9) 22-20 8-21 14-21

[R1] ATTRI Manu / REDDY B. Sumeeth (IND,28) d. LIAO Min Chun / SU Ching Heng (TPE,13)
[R1] Satwiksairaj RANKIREDDY / Chirag SHETTY (IND,18) l. GOH V Shem / TAN Wee Kiong (MAS,10) 19-21 20-22

[R1] Ashwini PONNAPPA / REDDY N. Sikki (IND,27) l. KONG Hee Yong / KIM So Yeong (KOR,33) 10-21 18-21

[R1] Satwiksairaj RANKIREDDY / Ashwini PONNAPPA (IND,25) d. Marcus ELLIS / Lauren SMITH (ENG,12) 21-13 20-22 21-17
[R1] Pranaav Jerry CHOPRA / REDDY N. Sikki (IND,21) d. Marvin Emil SEIDEL / Linda EFLER (GER,18) 21-19 21-17

Good wins over higher ranked teams by doubles pairs of Satwik-Ashwini, Pranav-Sikki and Manu-Sumit. But, otherwise predictable results. Saina and Prannoy fell to slightly higher ranked players.

I wish they would have 16 seeds in badminton. WR 13 playing WR 11 and WR10 playing WR9 in the first round happens only in badminton.

While Manu and Sumeeth have been quite good recently, Chirag and Satwik have been generally disappointing. Ashwini and Sikki too have been on a downhill. Overall our doubles is not showing as much improvement as one would have liked to see, more so from the newer crop of players.
Also 16 seeds in a 32 player draw does not make too much sense, it robs the draw of any surprises.

Last week, Sumeet and Manu defeated V Shem Goh and Wee Kiong Tan in three games ... So Satwik and Chirag's loss is bit disappointing.
