    The site has no draw or result information.
    I was hoping they would use tournament software to show the draw and results.....:crying:

    Hope Chris Lawrence is reading this post.:D

    Up-and-coming sport in America?

    Check out this Boston Globe article I just found in
    http://www.boston.com/sports/other_sports/articles/2007/05/05/badminton_its_quite_a_racket/

    It's quite a racket
    By: Nancy Marrapese-Burrell, Globe Staff

    To many people, badminton is considered a sport best played in the backyard during a neighborhood barbecue. But to others, it's a sport that requires superior hand-eye coordination, cardiovascular fitness, and intelligence.

    Yesterday at MIT, some 200 competitors in the latter group gathered for the 11th annual Boston Open Badminton Tournament, the largest field ever for the event.

    Two of those who will be playing in the junior singles, doubles, and mixed doubles are 15-year-old twins Jenn and Allison Bachner of Marblehead. The freshmen at Marblehead High School play out of the town's youth badminton program. They are coached by Melinda Keszthelyi of Hungary, who will also be playing in the Open.

    The tournament committee had hoped to have former Olympians headline the event, but instead there will be some hopefuls who are vying for a spot on the United States team for the 2008 Games in Beijing -- Bob Malaythong, Eric Go, Raju Rai, and Jennifer Coleman.

    ''It's the biggest tournament of the East Coast,'' said Keszthelyi. ''There are five regional classics plus the Nationals. Because it's $17,000 [in prize money], everyone comes here. The only higher prize money is the US Open in August in Los Angeles and [last year] that was $25,000. This year, we have a lot of international players, which is great.''

    The game is especially prevalent on the West Coast, and Keszthelyi said it's the most popular sport in Asia.

    ''Most of the top players come from the countries of China, Korea, Malaysia, and Indonesia,'' she said. ''And in Europe, it's maybe Denmark. Everybody else is below them.''

    Keszthelyi competed on the national team in Hungary, where ''the competition level is very good but because of a lack of facilities it's very hard to rent courts.''

    She believes it's an up-and-coming sport in America.

    ''In 2005, the men's doubles team won the world championships,'' she said. ''That was a very important step for US badminton. We always qualified one or two players for the Olympics but it was very hard.''

    Chandra Kowi/Daniel Gouw lost in MD Semifinal, Daniel got cramp, and couldn't move. But Chandra/Mona (I think?) will play XD final though.

    After all, all I can say is: What an Impressive Lady Mona Santoso is!!!!!!

    Final result:

    XD: Mona/Chandra
    LS: Johanna
    MS: Mike Beres
    WD: Angie/Mona
    MD: Halim/Bob

    XD - Chandra made a big difference. He played really well.
    LS - Mona's doulbe attacking style didn't work here.
    MS - Mike is very very steady. I only counted 6 unforced error from him. Raju made a lot of those.
    WD - match of the day.
    MD - The MA pair was not at the same level of Halim/Bob. However, they did put up a good fight.
