I read somewhere Chen yu withdraw from ABC,can anyone confirm it??
I also read Chen Yu would not play from thestar sports news:
"Meanwhile, Chen Yu is a no-show for the championships and no reason was given for his withdrawal at the team managers' meeting yesterday. His place will be taken by Malaysia's Tan Chun Seang, who will play in the qualifying tournament today."
I'm sure Yannie and Tan Chun Seang's other fans will be happy though

Slight illness won’t floor Lee
By RIZAL ABDULLAH
Top seed and defending champion Lee Chong Wei (pic) had a running nose and felt feverish but it did not stop him from joining his team-mates in a training session at the Indoor Stadium here yesterday.
Chong Wei opens the defence of the Asian Badminton Championships (ABC) men's singles title tomorrow against South Korea's Hwang Jung-woon. He won the title last year beating Thailand's Boonsak Ponsana 21-12, 21-16 in the final.
“It's just a slight running nose and slight fever. Nothing to worry about. I should be okay when the tournament gets underway on Wednesday,” said Chong Wei.
The 25-year-old Malaysian goes into the match against Jung-woon with the psychological advantage of having beaten the Korean in the second round of the Taiwan Open last year.
After the disappointing outings in the All-England and Swiss Open last month, which also saw his world ranking drop to number six, Chong Wei hopes to redeem himself in the ABC.
And he is not about to let a change in coach affect his game. Chong Wei is on his third coach in just three months. After the departure of China's Li Mao, he came under the charge of Wong Tat Meng before opting to train under Misbun Sidek just over a week ago.
“I am the defending champion and it is best that I take one match at a time. I have also just resumed training under Misbun. But it is not a bother because it was Misbun who helped develop my game during my younger days,” said Chong Wei.
But Chong Wei admitted that he had yet to come to grips with his All-England quarter-final exit at the hands of China's Chen Yu.
“Now my focus is on the ABC. And I hope not to disappoint the fans here. I like the crowd here. They played a big role in my victory last year and I hope to repay them for the support again.”
Meanwhile, Chen Yu is a no-show for the championships and no reason was given for his withdrawal at the team managers' meeting yesterday. His place will be taken by Malaysia's Tan Chun Seang, who will play in the qualifying tournament today.
i think this kinda answer ur question rite????
yes yannie will be smiling so much tat u can only see her teeths hahaha

You can find it here-------------http://www.badmintonasia.org/newspage.aspx?newsID=206

CY said he is not in good form now and will prepare for S.S.S. and I.S.S. .
So he give up the ABC 2007.
+++He was slightly injured in training.
Now we wait for Taufik to withdraw perhaps --- he, too, would be lacking in form if he had not played for a while (the same thing I said about CY and proven correct here). If he plays, I do not expect him to WIN.
to X Ball... u mean u dun expect CY to win even if he plays or u r referring to TH??
I am referring to both -- TH and CY ---both cannot win. I think I was a bookie in my previous life and that is why I have this betting streak in me.
The conclusion I made is because they are NOT tournament hardened this time round.
Taufik is not going to withdraw, he is going to the final and win against retired Chen Hong... and of course will beat LCW in quarter final (if LCW make it there)
Waha~ I salute IndoAmerican for his Accurate Guessing Everytime !! But i want to see LCW in the FINAL, please :crying: :crying: :crying:
Sure sure.....if you say so.
was hoping to see Tan Chun Seang in action.....he's the only MAS player in qualifying......sigh......
At least one good news for LCW although it didn't give big effect. TH still waiting him in QF scenario. No reason/explanation of CY's withdrawal unless suddenly injured (?), sounds mysterious. Of course, CHN top-players take more attention to tourney w/ Super Series label including CY.
CH was quoted in the Press saying he is not fit !
umm... you sound like indra..
CH (chen Hong) or CY (Chen Yu)?
Yeah you got me --- my mistake, it was CY reported not fit.
No, I'm just making a realistic probabilistic prediction. With lack of top MS players, this has Taufik name written all over it... hope he will entertain us this time.
Hahahahaha you both are damn funny!
Hmm, now just hoping that Monkey will have good results in ABC.
malaysia boleh ... final would be all malaysian .... lol maybe in MD ?
