Surprise surprise! So many upsets in this year’s All England 2016 as it brings to a close this year’s edition. Who on earth will expect Vladimir Ivanov-Ivan Sozonov will ever will the All England title?
Nozomi Okuhara is surely the next darling in the women single event as she wins her first title in the tender age of 21. Wang Shixian was surely a deserving winner as well but there could one be one winner only.
Many didn’t expect Lin Dan to win his 6th title but he prove his critics wrong by winning it for the 6th time beating compatriot Tian Houwei.
Praveen Jordan and Debby Susanto was another surprise this tournament by beating all the top mixed doubles pairing en-route to this title.
Misaki Matsutomo & Ayaka Takahashi made a grand day for Japan as they won the women double’s title beating the Chinese pairing of Yu Yang and Tang Yuanting. If only the Japanese men double could have won the title then it would have been 3 wins!!
Nonetheless, congrats to all winners and the Rio Olympics is just round the corner!!
