Top seeds on point in Bangkok

There were no upsets in the BWF Thomas and Uber Cup Finals in Bangkok, Thailand, on Thursday.

Thomas Cup first seeds China were too good for Chinese Taipei, rolling them over 3-0 at the Impact Arena.

Chou Tien Chen looked as they he could upset former world number one Chen long after winning the second game in the opening match, but Long quickly ended such hopes, as Chinese Taipei failed to win another game for the remainder of the day.

In the Uber Cup, top seeds Japan were off to inauspicious start when Tai Tzu ying breezed past Akane Yamaguchi early on. But the paring of Yuki Fukushima and Sayaka Hirota leveled the tie at 1-1, after which Japan won all the remaining four game to seal the victory.
