Albeit not as rewarding as football, tennis or Formula 1 in terms of monetary benefits, the popularity of badminton rivals every major sport on the planet owing to its simplistic nature.

Whether male or female, it’s the relatability factor that is responsible for the popularity of badminton and its players among the masses. However, it would

The fighting victory put Fiji on the cusp of making the quarterfinals for the first time since 2007, but not quite there yet and the deal will have to be sealed in a final pool game against another underdog in Portugal.
The death toll from a Nagorno-Karabakh fuel depot blast soared to 170 on Friday as the exodus from the ethnic Armenian enclave following its fall to Azerbaijani forces continued unabated.Monday's explosion on the outskirts of rebel stronghold Stepanakert added to the human drama playing out along the high mountain border between rivals Armenia and Azerbaijan for the past week.Karabakh refugees -- their supplies of everything from food to medicine choked off by a nine-month Azerbaijani blockade -- were scrambling to stock up on fuel at one of the few functioning petrol stations before leaving their homeland.Images taken by frightened families showed a fireball the size of a football field erupting high into the night sky.It wounded hundreds and left scores unaccounted for.The separatist government said on Friday that forensic experts had been able to piece together "170 remains" of bodies that will be brought to Armenia for identification.It added that 349 people -- most of them suffering severe and critical burns -- were being treated in various hospitals across the region.Blast survivor Samvel Hambardzyumyan said he only escaped serious injury because there were others in front of him in the petrol queue."There were nine people ahead of me. If they hadn't been there, I would have been burned alive," the 61-year-old said.Hambardzyumyan's face was partially burned and his hands were wrapped in heavy bandages."No one knows exactly what happened," he said.- Outpouring of grief -The updated toll means that nearly 600 people have died since Azerbaijan launched a 24-hour blitz that forced the rebels to agree to disarm last week.The Azerbaijani offensive was both the shortest and most decisive of any conflict the predominantly Christian Armenian and Muslim Azerbaijani rivals have waged since the region's status became disputed with the collapse of the Soviet Union.The separatists agreed on Thursday to dissolve their government and become a formal part of Azerbaijan by the end of the year.The decision marked the end of one of the world's longest and seemingly most intractable "frozen conflict" -- one that Azerbaijan was able to finally win while longstanding Armenian ally Russia was bogged down in its war on Ukraine.It prompted an outpouring of grief in Armenia, immortalised in a viral clip of a Yerevan TV presenter breaking down in violent sobs while reading a separatist statement saying Nagorno-Karabakh will "cease to exist".Azerbaijan is now holding "re-integration" talks with separatist leaders while at the same time detaining some senior figures from its former government and military command.It detained a businessman and philanthropist who headed the government for four months on Wednesday, and on Friday, the deputy commander of the rebel force.Both are officially suspected of "terrorist" activities. - Empty enclave -Azerbaijan might end up taking over little more than empty homes and uncultivated fields by the time the separatist government hands over its remaining authorities to Baku.Yerevan said 93,000 of the region's estimated 120,000 people had fled since Azerbaijan unlocked the only road linking Nagorno-Karabakh with Armenia on Sunday.The exodus has been accompanied by accounts of families burning their belongings so that they do not fall into Azerbaijani hands.Refugee Angelina Agabekyan showed AFP a video of her husband setting his uniform and military documents on fire before the family joined the flood of people taking Soviet-era Ladas and beat up vans out of Stepanakert.Agabekyan's little son joyfully added his toys to the flames "so that the Azerbaijanis don't get to play with them".The episode highlights the deep mistrust and ancient ethnic feuds taring at a region that has changed rulers repeatedly over the centuries.Nagorno-Karabakh is internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan -- a status it has enjoyed since first being handed to Baku by Moscow in the 1920s.But it has been populated by ethnic Armenians since at least 2nd century BC and is viewed as a cherished ancestral home by many Armenians.- Political pressure -The region's supporters and pro-Russians staged six days of anti-government protests that they interrupted this week to help Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan focus on helping the refugees.But they intend to hold another big and disruptive rally on Saturday aimed at punishing Pashinyan for deciding not to help separatist forces fight Azerbaijan.Pashinyan has tried to deflect the blame on Russia.Moscow has deployed peacekeepers in the region that were meant to police a truce ending a 2020 war in which Baku clawed back some of the lands it lost to the separatists in the 1990s.Pashinyan called Yerevan's current alliances "ineffective" and urged parliament in next week's session to ratify a document that would make Armenia a member of the International Criminal Court.The ICC has issued an international arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin.The Kremlin said it would treat Armenia's ICC membership as an "extremely hostile" step.bur-zak/jj

The Ryder Cup is set for a fiery climax on Sunday after Rory McIlroy's row with Patrick Cantlay's caddie overshadowed the American's late surge in Saturday's fourballs which gave the USA a glimmer of hope.Rose had sunk the key 19-foot putt to halve his Friday fourballs match in stunning fashion and on Saturday the English Ryder Cup veteran repeated the trick on the 16th.
Last-gasp heroics from Jon Rahm, Viktor Hovland and Justin Rose helped Europe hold off a United States fightback to seize a record-equalling 6.5-1.5 lead after the opening day of the Ryder Cup on Friday.They equalled the biggest first-day lead in Ryder Cup history, matching their effort in 2004 and the USA's in 1975.
Eight-seeded Veronika Kudermetova upset No. 2 Iga Swiatek 6-2, 2-6, 6-4 in the quarterfinals of the Toray Pan Pacific Open on Friday.

The Russian now advances to her sixth semifinal of the year where she'll meet compatriot Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who earlier beat Ekaterina Alexandrova 6-2, 7-5.
