    What has whether the Russians are coming or not got to do with FHF/CY that you have to call them noobs ? And everybody could see for a fact that the INA pair was nearly beaten by the Russians just now. Does it mean you will call Ahsan/Setiawan noobs if they had lost to the Russians just now ?

    C'mon, take it easy. It's the nature of sport competitions to have winners and losers, victors and vanquished. It's good to give credit where due, praise where deserved, irrespective who they are or where they are from.

    Really a disappointing one to Russian pair.. For a moment, they would have thought that they are going to win and then they are out... World No.1 pair escaped a great threat..

    well, on paper they were supposed to win today. but they have certainly raised a few eyebrows from their performance in the past 2 weeks. nothing to be ashamed of.

    Very unfortunate for the Russians - I was rooting for them to win and they could've if they'd kept their nerve.

    And re: WYH versus Han Li - WYH kept the shuttles flying fast and smashed a lot. Don't you just love that she knows what to do against her compatriots but when she's facing foreign opposition, it's her opponents that are doing all the attacking? If that light bulb doesn't spark, it's a straight game loss for her tomorrow.

    Even i was wondering that.. I found some of the BC members' posts disappeared.. There was a post by a member 'sen' and when i opened, i did not find it in the thread.. Now, it seems ok but still that post is missing ( i mean the post by 'sen').. Strange.. Only Administrator can do something about this...

    BC page wasn't reachable for a few minutes, then I got "Database error" when trying to post something.
    Now it works as great as always.

    there are a couple of posts by sen in the previous page. are they what you are referring to?

    there seems to have a hiccup as i was trying to streamline the database. but right now it seems to be OK.

    in XD, HKG pair LCH/CHW is through, defeating INA pair 2:1.

    they will face CHN pair of LC/BYX in SF tmr. interesting, they were supposed to meet in the qualification but both were promoted due to other players' withdrawal.... now they finally meet in SF...

    Groan. I am not able to be there today nor tomorrow afternoon. The home crowd must have been wild. Lee Chun Hei is very popular. Last year world junior champion and now in a super series semifinal with a definite chance of making the final.
