    Agree that the WS between RI and PVS will be very interesting viewing. So glad that WS is getting so much respect these days. It really is exciting times with so many up and comers.

    Very keen to see Du Pengyu against Lee Chong Wei. He is so hard-working that I have to root for him despite the huge public pressure seeking a LCW v LD match.

    As for the other "hardest working man" in badminton, Nguyen Tien Minh... he doesn't stand a chance against the beautifully tanned and elegantly coiffed Lin Dan.

    Somehow, Fu/Cai have found ways to win despite playing at an almost all time low level. The INA pair have been up and down as well, so who knows. I will say Fu/Cai continues on.

    The match of the round. WOW! Sindhu has been laying waste to all of CHN WS while Rat has been less convincing with her wins. Since I love Rat, I will have to put her through :D

    No matter how you cut it, it's so hard to kill off BoMo. But I think today is the day. The Koreans have been stealthily knocking off good pairs and with conviction.

    Yes, DuPY may prolong the match but he's a goner. CBA mandate is for him to tire out LCW. Plus he needs hair styling from Mr. GQ Lin Dan. :D

    The second best match of the day. I would love to see Butet/Towi go through to give us more variety in the final but I don't think it's gonna happen.

    May vs the Giraffe!! A dream semi! Will May succeed once again, or will Sindhu exact revenge?

    May has the ability to create angles and smashes from out of nowhere when she's on song, but she's also more of a frontrunner. She has the weapons and the knowledge to hurt Sindhu by making her work harder at the net. And she can often do -and pull off- the unexpected.

    But this is Sindhu v1.5 if not v2. Faster, more accurate, taking the shuttle early (for the most part) patient, and most important, she has rediscovered the smash power she had during her early days, and is using it to lethal effect.

    Damn you BWF for blocking the streaming!!!!! :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Beaten in the quarter-finals two years ago by Peter Gade, Nguyen Tien Minh (pictured) was elated to finally clear this hurdle and propel himself in the semi-finals of the Wang Lao Ji BWF World Badminton Championships in Guangzhou. Nguyen dominated the first game only to see Jan O Jorgensen (pictured) surge past him at the end of the second to force the decider. Things started to go Jorgensen’s way again after the end change in the deciding game, as he caught back to tie it up at 13-all. The rallies started to get longer and longer as it appeared that Jorgensen was trying to tire out the tireless Nguyen and Nguyen was patiently waiting for Jorgensen to make errors that seemed to never come. [​IMG]
    The climax came with a marathon rally on Nguyen’s last in a string of four match points where he finally had a smash down Jorgensen’s backhand sideline called out. An exhausted and deflated Nguyen picked himself up and managed to battle through the last few points before coming away with the 21-8, 17-21, 22-20 victory. Asked what the key factor in his loss, Jorgensen replied curtly, “First set. End of story. “Yeah, I couldn’t play in the beginning of the deciding game, then I came over to against the draft and then I could make it hard for him but in the end it wasn’t enough. I’ve played like two hours more than him this week. “You can’t win a match when you can only play on one side. I’ve tried but I’ve lost nearly every game I’ve played with the draught.” [​IMG]
    “I just can’t believe what has happened today,” said Nguyen Tien Minh, “because my country is not like China, Korea, Thailand, or Denmark: the strong badminton countries. I’m the first one from my country who can get a bronze medal. Even if I lose tomorrow, I can still get a bronze medal from the World Championships. “Nobody can believe it. Even I can’t believe it. The best I’ve ever done is a quarter-final in a major event like this. I’ve won Grand Prix Gold events but never even been past the semi-final in a Superseries event. “When I changed the ends in the last game, the wind was so strong, if you hit strong, the shuttle will go out so you have to control and that tires you out. He could hit anything and it wouldn’t go out so that’s why he seemed more fit at the end. “Jan is a very strong player. He has already won a Superseries title. And two years ago in London, I also played a Danish player in the quarter-final, won the first game, had 19-all in the second and then lost it, and now here I was again against a top player from Denmark. Asked about his outlook for Saturday’s match against Lin Dan (pictured below), Nguyen exclaimed, “Tomorrow? Today, I’m already dying! Tomorrow, if I can get 15 points, I will be satisfied. Lin Dan is so strong that Chen Long only got 13 points!
    [​IMG]

    “It doesn’t matter if he hasn’t been in tournaments, his body is already very fit and he can hit the shuttle anywhere he wants to. Me, I can just do a little bit here and there.

    Lol~Seems NTM is giving up the idea of going to final. So easy win for LD today :cool: NTM had a hard game yesterday so I dont think he has enough energy to fight LD.

    There is a fair chance that LXR's express run may come to a screeching end before she reaches her destination. BYJ has a pretty good record against her (2-3 for BYJ) and considering LXR's relative unease against southpaws, she could well go down.

    Bae YJ is a solid, defensive, rallying player. The fact that she has eliminated S Takahashi and Saina shows the form she is in, I won't under-estimate her but consider her a dangerous opponent. Perhaps her remarkable defensive ability is capable of troubling and frustrating attacking players. LXR has to be at her attacking best to break down her resistance.
