    Yesterday, I PAWed 20 entries, but scored only 10 correct. Still happy - because that's my usual results: Half right, half wrong. :D:D:D

    Today, I will pick these players (who are giving reasonable/PAWable scoring points) to win;

    Womens Singles:
    * Cheng Shao Chieh (TPE)
    * Ratchanok Inthanon (THA)
    * Li Xuerui (CHN)

    Mens Singles:
    * Wang Zhengming (CHN)

    Singles matches I am looking forward to:

    • MS - CJ v JOJ. JOJ could do PG a huge favour by knocking CJ out. I call this a 50/50 match
    • MS - LD v LHI. So many possible permutations with the outcome. KOR's best hope for MS glory could use some "help"
    • MS - WZM v SS. The third piece of the LYB puzzle lies in this match. SS has the edge and a win by him would mean keeping LD involved in the tournament.

    • WS - Saina v CSC. 2 of the top non-CHN contenders. I saw CSC labouring a little against bouncy Sayaka yesterday while Saina breezed past an injured Egelstaff. I think the fresher Saina will edge it.
    • WS - Tine v LXR. LXR had to fight tooth and nail to eliminate young Carolina Marin. Tine dismantled a disappointing Michelle Li. Tine in a close one.
    • WS - Yippy v WSX. This will be Yippy's best chance to scalp WSX, who, must be said, is showing vulnerability. The key for Yippy is patience. However I think WSX will have just enough to hold her off.

    Last but not least...
    WYH v HHY. Auntie YJ has woken the tigress up and I think she will devour poor HHY whole. HHY won't be able to outrun or outpower WYH, so just enjoy the match. All in all, a good tournament for HY. :)

    Welcome back. We miss you and your onion gifs! :)

    You have more faith in HHY's ability than me (bad me! :D). If Aunty YJ hadn't woken WYH up, it would be a closer match.

    As for JOJ, he is one of these guys that win "ugly", but nonetheless, wins. He has good mental strength and knows how to win. I think he has played quite well recently and wouldn't be surprised if he picked up a result.

    Well thank you. That's really nice. :) I miss this forum very much too, I remember waking up early just to post my paw, following livescore until midnight, haha... Gosh, it's almost 2 years.

    Haha... we all know HHY, she wants to play badminton and I think she loves badminton. :D. All the best for her today. And yeah, I recalled watching JOJ match and find his attitude is good. Like you said, he is quite confident with his ability, which I rarely find with Indonesian player lately.

    Sometimes I watched old clips while having lunch and really miss those 'spirit' from Ina players. I mean, we can't win every match but sure we can fight in every match.

    The 1[SUP]st[/SUP] round of the Victor Korea Open 2012 saw some upsets and ‘retirements’.
    Chen Long retired in the 1[SUP]st[/SUP] game, 15-20, in his match against Hsu Jen Hao and Ajay Jayaram against Wan Ho Shon with both hardly lifting their rackets.
    Lin Dan was stretched 21-18, 20-22, 21-10 by Pablo Abian.
    Peter Gade, Taufik Hidayat and Wang Xin were shown the exits by lesser-ranked rivals and so also the top seeded XD pairing of Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei who were whipped in 2 games by Chris Adcock/Imogen Bankier 21-19, 21-16.
    Nguyen Tien Minh has seen better days and bows out quite regularly in earlier rounds and this time to Kenichi Tago in 3 games 19-21 21-10 21-9. The same situation applies to Pi Honyan.
    Porntip B was a surprise loser to Gu Juan in 3 games.

    In our PAW Game thread, we have many PAWers picking Wang Zhengming to win. Let's see if he can defeat the No.6 seed, Sho Sasaki.

    Looks like Koo/Tan have modified their game a little. Much flatter and taking the offensive initiative. 11-4

    Can't believe how ordinary Fang/Lee have become since sensationally bursting on the scene 2 years ago. Everyone is beating them these days. Koo/Tan 15-5
