    I think Robertson/Wallwork losing should also be considered an upset.

    Many of them shouldn't be called "upset"...

    For example GWJ bt LY, WC bt PHY. :cool:

    According to WR it is, as you know, the list follows WR, as everyone will have different opinions as to whether it's upset or not according to form, skills, etc,etc : ;);)

    Weijie GONG (WR# 69) - Yi LU (WR#34) : 22-20 21-15
    There's another CHina MS player by the name of Li Yu. WR# 124 :)


    Chen Wang - Hongyan Pi [6] : 17-21 21-13 21-12 is
    WR# 8 beat WR# 6, minor upset

    And there's also one that's not in the list = Xu Chen/Zhao YUnlei beating Tan Wee Kiong/Woon Khe Wei as Xu Chen/ZHao for some weird reason are not in the BWF list, only Xu Chen/Zhao Ting Ting, XU Chen/Pan Pan are.

    It is pretty hard to quantify on what accurately constitutes an upset. Ranking is one way to quantify (i.e. lower-rank beat higher-ranked = upset). But it's not terribly accurate at times. And it's not easy to give a good indicative ranking to scratch pairs.

    So, it turns out that for most of us, gut-feeling is the way to go. Even recent results would not help. Example: Lin Dan was amazing in recent weeks. Suddenly, on match day, he got he flu, and lost to Lee Chong Wei. Upset? I don't think so, unless it's the stomach upset variety.

    Sometimes, it's pretty easy to spot a non-upset. Just look at the PAW game. Wang Lin [11] v Xu Huaiwen [9], and almost to the last PAWer, chooses Wang Lin. Upset ranking-wise yes, but upset in the minds of the people, no.
