Danish hopeful, Boe/Mogensen also couldn't repeat their London 2012 silver medal successful story, downed by Korean Kim GJ/Kim SR.

    Mixed doubles bronze medalist of Olympic Games last edition Fischer/Pedersen couldn't capitalise their first game leading as Chinese Xu/Ma were back to their best at next two games. The underdogs Poland duo Mateusiak/Zieba produced their excellent play to beat more favoured rival The Adcocks and top group B. Joining them in last eight are defending champion Zhang/Zhao, Jordan/Susanto, Ahmad/Natsir, Chan PS/Goh LY, Ko SH/Kim HN and Kazuno/Kurihara. Indonesia has secured 1 semifinal spot due to their two pairs will face each other on today's evening local time.

    Christinna Pedersen redeemed her mixed doubles losing to win women's doubles crucial tie, beat Korean Jung KE/Shin SC and out as group B runner-up. China hopeful in women's doubles discipline is relying on Tang YT/Yu Y who managed second position in group D, they lost rubber games to Chang YN/Lee SH. As expected top-seed Matsutomo/Takahashi have perfect win in group A also another title contender Indonesians Maheswari/Polii were out as group C winner. Two remaining pairs completed quarterfinal stage are NED Muskens/Piek and MAS Vivian Hoo/Woon KW.

    We've all known that the women's singles draw is red hot, but looking at this, mixed doubled is also at the boiling point.
    If you look at the Men's doubles group results, then you know that too is going to be a bloodbath.
    That just leaves men's singles; can they step up to the plate and deliver?

    From previous years, I really don't have faith in CPS/GLY's mental ability to play on the big stage. Their performance yesterday against Tontowi/Lilyana is also abysmal and they have to play at a totally different level if they want to stand a chance. Here's hoping CPS/GLY surprises me and pulls out the performance of their lifetime to actually fight for a medal here.

    Its a matter of time before Europeans get golds, otherwise badminton might get removed from the Olympics.

    Watch out, the veteran Polish Pair , 40-yr-old Mateusiak and 32-yr-old Zieba, are playing the badminton of their lives !

    Good luck to MAS Goh Liu Ying/Chan Peng Soon, they sure need plenty of it up against the fiery in-form Poles in the QFs.

    He is living evidence that far too many players retire too early.

    Yes, Mateusiak is so fast at charging the net with his quick pushes, swift drives and soft touches, not only that, his court coverage (he's all over the place),well-placed stinging smashes and successful defense are amazing for a 40-year-old - it puts many 20-year-olds in shame.

    The Polish XD pair is playing above themselves at the best of times. I won't be surprised if they're at least thru to the semifinals for a bronze, if not the final for silver or even gold.

    As I said in another thread, CPS has to improve his serves to have any chance of winning.

    Successful challenge takes SWH to the interval with a 5 point advantage.
