    China is just too strong in Sinlges dept.

    Good resurgence by Choong/Lee, I hope they get past the danish pair tomorrow.

    A Dragon the winner, a Worm the loser

    For those who judged Lee/Chong harshly when they were not doing well may have to retreat to the mountain and meditate oneself's misfortunes.

    I really really hope Lee/Chong will grab this title, although they are not my favarite team.

    LOL, retreat to the mountain, that is a bit harsh. How about facing the wall for a few hours. After all, there are a few matches left to watch (read in my case).

    BTW, now JUN Jae Youn has beaten two of the top players, Wang C and Camilla, back to back. Do you think she will come out on top again against Gong RN? Is she a new face? Who is her coach? Does anyone know something about this girl (style of play etc)?

    It might be difficult to manage three major upsets in a row...

    Look at Simon Santoso : after beating Shon and Gade in three sets each, he just couldn't make it past Bao...

    Plus after one or two upsets, the "surprise effect" is lost, so it gets even more difficult!

    Apart from these points, I think it would be nice if Jun Jae Youn made it to the final, because we tend to always see the same players in LS, so a bit of change would be great! :D

    Unfortunately I don't have a pass so I don't think I can get more photos tomorrow because taking photo is not permitted without a pass. :(

    i see similarities between Wang Chen and Camilla, both are not very consistent players. and when on off days, can hit the simpliest shots way off and gives away the whole match.

    Jun Jae Youn, at least the last couple of times i saw her play, is the consistent and control type of player. works hard and patiently and will play till you lose your own point, ala GongRN and GongZC style. Wang and Camilla always have problems with this patient type of players. we will see how she will do in the semi and final.

    this is probably one of the best tournament Jun has played. i believe she is being coached by Li Mao, the former Chinese MS coach who brought players like Sun Jun and Dong Jiong to fame.

    Nice pics, Rick.

    It looked very intense in Kim’s eyes. Are you a professional photographer? What kind of camera did you use?

    Would you say the player who seems to be giving Wang Chen the most problem nowadays is Zhou Mi? Isn't Zhou Mi more of an attacking type of player rather than a patient player?

    Thanks, Kwun for the info.

    This must be the first time JUN Jae Youn meets Gong RN. If both of them are control types of players then whoever has better endurance should win the match. JUN Jae Youn won in two tough 3-seters previously. That must have taken a lot out of her. But, I think JUN Jae Youn is a bit (or a lot) younger than Gong RN. Expecting another tough 3-seter.

    Very nice pics, Rick. There are lots of empty seats?

    OK, back from the mountain and face the Democratic Wall and balance the bible on head for 2 hours. How is that?

    Re: semi finals

    Even more entries means "dominate". The entries are not randomly picked, it's based on the ranking and result from qualification results, not a free gift.
