    On the other hand, it would have been an upset if it were the other way round, ie, KJ lost instead! :D

    Robertson and Emms, definitely. Alven and Luluk may be #1 but they aren't so consistent and they have had a lot of trouble against Korean pairs. They are 2-3 against Ha/Kim (but one of their "win"'s came with Ha dropping out due to injury in the 2003 WC first round) and 0-2 against Lee/Yoo. Yi Jae-jin and Jung Jae-sung, on the other hand, are coming off consecutive wins in last month's nationals against the Olympic gold and silver medalists. Their losing to Candra and Sigit surprised me more than their beating Alven/Luluk, though I didn't expect that 15-12, 15-3 drubbing.

    On the other hand, Yi Yong-dae is nobody. The kid is 16 and apart from the French Open, where he reached the semis, he's only played in junior tournaments, and that includes domestic! Ha Jung-eun, who turns 18 in 3 months, is never much of a force internationally either. I missed that game but World No. 1 and this pair? How?

    I think ZHANG/ZHANG lost to the england pairs Gail/Donna is the biggest upset.
