How did Harimoto drop that much in so little time?

Timo is just keeping LGY's seat in the top 5 warm as well.

Credit to Timo for overcoming all the adversity and skepticism, managing to recover from injuries and returning to the high playing standards he has shown before. I have to admit that around the time of Olympics last year, I was also skeptical about his future but now I have to take my hat off to this fantastic sportsman, hope he stays for some more years to come.

After losing to Aruna quite easily i thought he would retire. Boll seems to be enjoying his game more now.

Elizabeta Samara ( 26 rank ) is highest ranked women born outside asia. This is a little bit sad.
