    Thailand has not qualified to QF yet. Hong Kong has the same chance as Thailand to qualify. Today's match will determine who will qualify.

    Please state the fact right.

    Anyone knows how to stream court 2? I can stream court 1 from badminton channel on youtube, but cannot get court 2. The streaming links above do not work or my virus scan says, "danger!"

    Carolina Marin's screams are very annoying, I want to stuff her mouth with some socks.

    She keeps shouting non stop. to some extend even when her opponent score point she also shouted. The worse part is she kept shouting near the net loudly. Just wonder whether Goh Jin Wei will be deaf after this hearing all her shouting directed to her ears.

    It is one thing to shout when you win a point. It is bad sportsmanship to shout when your opponent makes a netcourt mistake. She is very annoying.

    Carolina Marin will win the award for the shouting queen in this tournament. I hope BWF will really give this award to her.

    Best way to stuff the mouth of Marin is for Goh Jin Wei a 15th year old to win over World Number 1!!
