    2011 Hong Kong Open SS: Round 1 Wednesday 16-November

    Some South East Asian players are participating in the SEA Games this week, and therefore they won't be here in Hong Kong.

    Congratulations to those who have played well on Qualification Day, and now made it into the Main Draw.

    For Live Streaming, perhaps BCers from different countries can post the links that are working for their regions. Different countries sometimes cannot use the same links.

    For our BC PAW Game, Sandy said that the thread should be out soon.

    It's going to be a long, long day.

    The first match will start at 9:00am and the last could finish around 11:00pm.

    The first match, Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei [1] (CHN)-vs-Lee Yong Dae/Ha Jung Eun (KOR), could be an upset. I believe it could happen with a 50% chance.

    They usually use 3 court instead of 5 or more. :(

    From what I know, only 3 courts are used.

    Sadly, they have shifted the venue from the cosy Queen Elizabeth Stadium on Hong Kong Island to the Hong Kong Coliseum in Kowloon.

    Fantastic... Spectators can also watch how the players do their warm-up, preparing for their matches to come.

    This is due to the need to meet BWF's requirement for a bigger stadium in order to hold a SS, according to Badzine.

    The spectator's area in the new place does look nice and dark. Good lighting conditions for the players. Reminds me of All England.

    Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei beat Lee Yong Dae/Ha Jung Eun 21-14; 21-9

    I think LYD and HJE doesn't have the right chemistry to challenge top pairs.

    LCW up nice and early for his match. Must have got a good workout against the Energizer Bunny Abian.

    HJE is quite overrated. I don't think she is the answer for Korea's top XD pair. She is good at pouting and looking all huffy though. :p

    Ooooooooo, Minatsu must have been trembling in her boots when she saw she had been drawn against Auntie Nicole. :D
