    Well, you were singling out a country's nationals in your post that j4ckie responded too.

    Please stop derailing this thread with your "woe betide the BWF, NHS and the UK government if they don't do something about the injustice that has befallen the INA team". There was a run of good discussion on the games before your daily thread rant/bump.

    Her opponent was Sung Ji Hyun of Korea.
    She was warned for delaying . She returned to her coach and walk away from net without giving shuttle back to her opponent many times.
    She did not heed umpires warnings.
    So, she was awarded yellow card twice and red card once.

    You are aware that Europe is a continent which Britain is still very much a part of, right? :D

    Well, bwf knew when they first arrived in UK and yet they are still allowed to go to the arena for practice with other player from other countries. If bwf wanted to be serious about 10 day rule, then immediately disallowed everyone who arrive after 7 March not to practice or even play in the first round.

    Do you know how many players arrive in UK after 7 March ?

    BTW, do you all know about the significance of 10 day and it is now 10 day when earlier it is 14 day ?

    From the research, anyone who has covid, at first it was thought that they will spread it as long as they have it. It turned out that they only spread it to others maybe about 14 days since the first time they are infected. Later more research done and anyone who has it for 10 days no longer spread it.

    Remember that it is 10 days since they first get it. So for the players who are already tested negative before they come to UK, even if they have covid, they will only endangering others if they get it after their test. Then they are tested again after they arrive in UK and for those who are negative again(that means they don't get infected during the flight) so it is safe to assume they are alright.

    So even patients of covid who are still tested positive after let's say 2 weeks after their first positive test, usually the doctor may allow them out of quarantine.

    Well I do agree that NHS is doing their best to protect everyone they can, but by allowing the tournaments to proceed, dont you think they are putting everyone that is participating in the tournament at risk? Since in theory a lot of officials / players were in close contact with the indonesian / turkish players and officials.

    By allowing the tournament to continue while the venue/ people involved in it might have been "contaminated",

    Dont you think they are putting everyone at risk by allowing it to continue?
    In theory if they truly believe that safety is most important right now, and all the players might have been contaminated,

    Allowing the tournaments to continue is the most reckless thing that NHS and BWF can do right now, and they are not taking it as serious as they can be.

    Honestly, I'm so sick of scrolling through the same old discussion regarding Indonesia - With all due respect.

    I read this forum to discuss players and their performances. We've given enough attention to the ongoing issue already. Please, just let it go.

    Well, the majority seems to prefer discussing about it rather than discussing the remaining players performances. It shows something right, the popularity of the sports does not only a matter of who is playing but also who is not playing. That's what any organizer should be aware of.

    Also, it is a matter of future tournament

    I agree with this. If it is such a big health risk, why risk it.
    That's why from earlier, I have said the culprit is the government rule(which sometimes ineffective)

    Anyone who said Bwf is not liable/responsible is totally wrong. If it is such a big deal following the 10 days rule, then force everyone to come and before tournament starts, check everyone who is against such a rule.

    Yes, but the poster is saying same old talk is going on and on and on which has no power to unchange what has happened. If people want to talk about it, why not create a different thread "All England 2021 Blunder" and this thread be reserved for on court action only?

    agreed.. that topic to me has run its course and is now going around in circles. Open a new topic and bash it out there. The tournament is moving forward and we are at the semifinals today. Lets talk about that here

    Not so fast. He still has to overcome his teammate, Anders Antonsen first. If he let his guard down, Anders might beat him again.

    SEMIFINALS (10.00am) => https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/...5CD30E-3F46-4AAF-843A-EBA0677FF99C&d=20210320

    Three of four men's singles semifinalists this year are same players who repeat their feat once again, sail through into last four. Lee Zii Jia answers his uninspiring performance with a bang in prestigious All England to stun two-time World Champion Kento Momota in convincing way. The fully-focused and well prepared Lee implements exact formula, very aggressive offensive style, pushing the Japanese into back line at defense position combined with excellent net play that flat footed Momota frequently. Momota has no enough time to think more and changes tactic to stem Lee relentless fast attacking shots, his mediocre accuracy and basic errors contributing world number one defeat. Lee capitalises the situation when Momota has not found his great form yet and has bright prospect to snatch final berth, takes on the surprising package Mark Caljouw this evening. All Danish affairs at bottom-half draw as predicted will pit Anders Antonsen versus defending champion Viktor Axelsen.

    Probably, Pusarla Sindhu regains her good form gradually as the Indian scored a strings of setbacks post 2019 World Championships triumph. Sindhu dropped opening game then regrouping her focus to present much better performance in next two games, balancing Akane Yamaguchi endurance with net shot and followed up by big smashes. The Japanese knows her opponent weak link to target Sindhu backhand corner with excellent frorehand cross court slice during long rallies, it's too bad the Japanese made mistakes in critical stage including the last one, mishits shuttlecock into the net. Sindhu should be alerted for her semifinal opponent development, the in-form Pornpawee Chochuwong who knocks out Zhang Beiwen. Ratchanok Intanon also Nozomi Okuhara as well involved in hard battle to conquer their rivals, Mia Blichfeldt and Busanan Ongbamrungphan respectively.

    DEN-JPN showdown fill men's doubles semifinal line-up, the more-fancied Japanese find tough test how they book semifinal ticket, troubled by European challengers. Endo/Watanabe looked unfamiliar and difficult to read the low-ranked Christiansen/Nohr game plan, the Dane almost forced rubber games, thanks to their progressive attacking shots and Watanabe unforced errors. The more anticipated match will look forward Kamura/Sonoda against fully-confident Astrup/Rasmussen where their head-to-head stats is very close. Meanwhile Endo/Watanabe take on the underdogs, Saarlorlux Open Champions Bay/Mølhede.

    Women's doubles all Japan finals is on the cards, Fukushima/Hirota were surprised by home hopefuls Birch/Smith who bombard the Japanese with lethal smashes and energetic display but waned in following games. The top-seeds are clear favourite to vanquish Netherland pair Piek/Seinen. Another Japanese contenders, Matsumoto/Nagahara and Matsuyama/Shida will face off each other, both pairs got stiff resistance by their respective last eight opposition.

    Rio Olympic silver medalists Chan PS/Goh LY outlast French improving duo Gicquel/Delrue in high intensity atmosphere, the vast experienced Malaysians prevail at the end, 22-20. They will meet Japan back ups Kaneko/Matsutomo, the Olympic Champion Misaki Matsutomo now only focusing on mixed doubles career after her partner Ayaka Takahashi retired. Second seed Watanabe/Higashino are expected to face big stumbling block to clear, local favourites Ellis/Smith to hunt final berth.

    Clely this forum would be incomplete without you. Day in day out, you put in your time to write these beautiful summaries. It pumps up like Bruce Buffer UFC announcement before the fights. Wish you became a mod here too.
