Biggest upset from today matches was Lin Dan crashing out!
But let´s start somewhere else:
 
Historical match
The last time Greysia Polii was in Wuhan for the Badminton Asia Championships, she could barely drag herself from the court.
That was because she and then-partner Nitya Krishinda Maheswari and Japan’s Naoko Fukuman and Kurumi Yonao had been part of an epic semi-final; the match going on for an incredible 161 minutes – making it the longest match ever.
 
Two years since then, Polii’s back, with a different partner – Apriyani Rahayu – and the Indonesians were taken the distance by local Women’s Doubles pair Huang Dongping and Li Wenmei in the opening round, 15-21 21-11 21-19.
It was a typically combative display by the doughty Indonesians, who found their Chinese opponents just as stubborn and sticking close despite falling behind by a narrow margin all through the final game.
