Lindaweni (3) lost to Ying Chun Lin 21-17, 18-21, 17-21
Yup, big upset so far, last year runner-up Lindaweni lost to lesser known local WS
Looks like all three INA WS are sent packing at R/32, Firda is still playing against Busanan now, 16-21 / 8-15...
Is there a livestream?
Spot on familiar name ...Zhang Beiwen...but representing USA...Is it the same one who used to represent SG?
Yes is the answer. She's representing USA now.

Thank you for pointing me to the thread that allows me to know the story behind as well. The problem between athlete and national team coach do happen at BAT also but, well, I think it is common problem in the sport.
INA youngster Panji Akbar upsets his senior, 4th seed Alamsyah Yunus, 10-21 / 21-18 / 22-20.
Another seeded player is out, Ashton Chen Yong Zhao lost to Son Wan Ho.
As expected , It's not upset
SonWanHo is a military man. He is returning back to circuit nowadays and trying to gain ranking points. This is not upset actually.
Ashton Chen losing to Shon Wan Ho isn't that unexpected but Hsu Shao Wen , a relative unknown, beating Anand Pawar (8) is an upset of sorts, I should think so.
TTY not on top form.
i think the injury on the knee still bugging her
Muhammad Rijal/Debby Susanto (1) (INA) VS Lee Young Dae/Sheung Chan Shing (KOR)
watch out ! top seed may be upset.
Muhammad Rijal /Debby Susanto [Indonesia] - Yong Dae Lee/Seung Chan Shin [Korea]
12-21 21-15 18-21
not really. this Korean pair looks like a new pairing to me, they may not have an high ranking but they surely will lately...and don't forget Lee Yong Dae was an Olympic XD champion !
Not really. I've had the pleasure for seeing Shin Seung Chan and her WD partner Lee So Hee playing at the Singapore open this year. Iirc they competed at the juniors last year and I managed to watch a few clips on youtube. She's a pretty good player. Only thing she lacks is experience at the super series level of play which she has been steadily getting slowly over the year now. She's young fast and definitely a pretty solid all round player. Whether she makes a good partner for LYD though will remain to be seen over time but I think it should be interesting to watch this XD pairing even if you aren't a fan
Today's QF matches will be started on 12.00pm local time : http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/sport/matches.aspx?id=17ABDFDB-92C9-48DE-9228-5FD3B9443235
Four local MS players advanced into last eight round while KOR XD pairs have secured 5 of 8 slots, also 4 pairs in WD category.
Interesting clashes : Axelsen v Hsu JH, Son WH v Chou TC, Sung JH v Porntip, Busanan v Bae YJ.
Well, 2 INA representatives will face tough QF opponent, KOR pairs are the fave to win.
Wow! Indonesia pair upset MD WR.1
First match of QF round, top seed is stunned by INA new combo Kurniawan/Septano, 18-21 / 16-21. Well done
