    You are half correct. I was there from 6.30pm until the end of the first game of the last match which was

    but I still don't know if I will be going the next few days.

    Arrived during Xing Aiying's match.The stadium was about 30% full. There were 4 courts. Everyone were very relaxed, the crowd and the player's waiting at the arena. Liew Daren was on his phone while waiting for his turn. Many JPN and KOR players and coaches. Not too long LCW came and finished his match in double quick time. He made some unforced errors which contributed to Sai Praneeth B.'s double digit score.

    Iskandar, LD and HTH/TWK's matches were on the court furthest away from me. Can't really see much except that Iskandar got a yellow card and Liew Daren got a red card. His smashes lack sting to kill off while he also gave away too many half courts for Prannoy to score points. There was a point where he could not kill a half court birdie, eventually losing the rally and he laid on the floor.

    KKK/TBH's opponent was of a different class, hence nothing much to shout about their performances.

    The most exciting matches were the two WD ones involving JPN against

    Only 30% full to watch matches at the venue? Looks like the organisers are disappointed.

    Are you referring to the spectators or the players? Spectators, there were many aunties. I had one grandma sitting behind making a lot of comments to herself.

    As for the players, please see 3rd last photo for the one in red with the bottle. She should be from HK and look like the actress Vicky Zhao Wei. It was a sad say for the HK camp as many of their players lost.

    Sorry for the poor quality photos. Using hp. I tried to "space" the photos for better viewing but not successful.

    Weekdays are like that and without many big players. The admission fee was RM10.00. Today should be RM20.00 and Astro is showing live on Channel 811.

    There is still Takuma and maybe Hafiz next. Hopefully Sony slow recovery also include endurance to consistently at least near his top level of his glory.

    Really hoping that SDK able to face Dato LCW, so that INA Team may gauge SDK improvement. If SDK able to go back on form, INA chances of winning TC this year is bigger..

    MS QF
    Tommy Sugiarto
    [3] vs Sourabh Varma [7] - a tricky tie against the Indian player awaits Tommy but I still expect him to fulfill his seeding.

    Takuma Ueda [5] vs Sony Dwi Kuncoro - it was an excellent result for Sony in beating Nguyen Tien Minh yesterday. Hopefully, this spurs him to perform well again today.

    WS QF
    Busanan Ongbumrungpan vs Aprilia Yuswandari [4] - the Thai player is one of the many WS players coming out of the conveyor belt and she reached R16 of WJC 2011. But since then, she had beaten Xing Ai Ying and Hera Desi (at the Vietnam IC 2011) and Hwang Hye Young (at the BAC 2012). So, definitely not a weak opponent for April. I still hope April can fulfill her seeding.

    XD QF
    Riky Widianto/Richi Dili Puspita
    vs Kim Dae Eun/Ko A Ra - as always, a match against KOR will be tough. It will be an excellent result if Riky/Richi can reach SF here.

    Mohd Razif Abdul Latif/Amelia Alicia Anscelly vs Irfan Fadhilah/Weni Angraini - ditto for Irfan/Weni.

    Yup, I looked up high to the stands behind all the courts and can't find any "big" cameras except some small recorders put up by the players/coaches.

    Yes, there always have. I didn't do any window shopping but learnt from my friend that they were very much cheaper that what he bought before.

    Unfortunately, players/coaches are too busy; No time to post their videos for us at BC.

    She already injured herself in so many tournaments and forced to concede a few walkovers already. IS her injury that serious? Why don't she take a good long rest or do a surgery if possible? There's no point if she keeps participating in a tournament and forced to concede walover and lost the match like that

    Xing Aiying's wins were a big surprise. I thought she has almost given up being a professional player since she played so badly before this tournament.

    Let's see whether she could win today to enter the SF tomorrow.

    If he do a walkover, there will be 2 consequences:
    a) the spectators will throw water bottle to the court
    b) organizer will be extremely disappointed with the number of crowd turning up.

    If lcw is absent from this tournament, expect half or more than half empty seat in the stadium?
