Artem Pochtarov – Luka Wraber Match Prediction | 19-08-2019

That was on my mind at the start of the third game. Close to tears following Intanons 16-21 22-20 21-10 revival, Blichfeldt conceded as much: I am very disappointed right now. She played six good rallies at the end of the second game and I didnt hit my shots well. Its too bad thats the sport.

Adopting a take-no-prisoners attitude, Intanon reeled off a series of sizzling strokes that stunned her rival and psychologically yanked the match from Blichfeldt as they crossed sides for the decider. Perilously poised at 16-19 down versus a rampant Mia Blichfeldt in the second game, and having just injured her ankle lunging towards the net, the Thai star seemed rejuvenated by the magic spray applied to her tweaked right foot.

Zheng Siwei/Huang Yaqiong barely broke a sweat against Russias Evgenij Dremin/Evgenia Dimova. India were also at the losing end against No.6 seeds, Chris and Gabby Adcock. The English duo beat Rohan Kapoor/Kuhoo Garg (21-12 21-12). However the latters compatriots, Hafiz Faizal/Gloria Emanuelle Widjaja advanced 21-16 21-4 versus Indias Pranaav Jerry Chopra/N Sikki Reddy. Second-round Mixed Doubles matches augured well for the hosts as Chinas top pairs strutted their class. The top seeds breezed by 21-13 21-10 while their second-seeded team-mates, Wang Yilyu/Huang Dongping went the distance to overcome Indonesias Ronald Ronald/ Annisa Saufika (21-9 15-21 21-15).

Others progressing in the category included Austrias Luka Wraber; Wang Tzu Wei of Chinese Taipei; Anthony Ginting of Indonesia and Denmarks Anders Antonsen who benefited from a walkover by Thailands Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk. Indias Kidambi Srikanth, who looked smooth in dispatching Irelands Nhat Nguyen (21-15 21-16), preferred to duck the spotlight but was happy with his first outing and is looking forward to tackling Spains Pablo Abian for a third-round berth. In Mens Singles, Japanese top gun Kento Momota cruised past Ukraines Artem Pochtarov (21-13 21-12) and declared himself fully fit and ready for the battle ahead.

It was nearly lights out for Beiwen Zhang also but the USA player a native of Anshan in Liaoning province got some vital support from fellow Chinese, watching in the stands, as she struggled to combat the power and aggression of Chloe Birch. At 16-16, Zhang pulled ahead to ensure a third game in which she stayed in front throughout, her trademark fluid, easy movement replacing the stiff tension that haunted her strokes in the early going. The Englishwoman was off to a flyer and strengthened her advantage from 12-5 to take the first game. She looked on track to do likewise in the second but, from 8-12 down, Zhang started to fight back while Birch increasingly sent the shuttle wide.
