    And the Quarter Finals!
    The Pre-QF Round turned out to be a bad day for many!
    Datuk LCW was shown the door by Mr explosive Wei Nan! images (12).jpg
    The Legend Lin Dan was dismissed by Aggressive SWH!
    images (13).jpg
    The Danish hearts failed as their very own JOJ couldn't pull off against the CHN youngster XS! images (14).jpg
    Tian Houwei hardly had any answers to MZ's dogged determination! images (17).jpg
    The Korean Leading ladies JKE/SSC surrendered against the JPN marathon runners Fukuman/Yonao
    images (15).jpg
    Too much Badminton proved costly as CTC ran out of steam against the comeback man HKV images (16).jpg After KS, the CHN combo of CB/HW became the second defending champ to bid farewell to the beautiful arena of Siri Fort complex! They lost their script when the INA pair of Kevin and partner took a string of pts!
    images (10).jpg
    And this is not all,
    The likes of LXR, PVS and TS survived the scare making it to the QF!
    MS:
    The discipline has witnessed surprises after surprises as the favs were sent packing in the early days! KM #2 and VA #5 takes the flag to the mast! The veterans TS and MZ worked hard to accompany them in final 8! Wei Nan and SWH stole the spotlight as they turned the world upside pouring cold water on the speculations of yet another LD vs LCW El Classic!
    WS:
    The healthiest discipline of all! WSX once again plays the Oly Champ, her very own compatriot LXR!
    The Resplendent Indian Gem SN will have have a tough test as she plays the devotinate SJH! TTY vs RI will be a high level tactical encounter as two deception speacilists face of for a SF birth!
    PVS and BYJ should be a gruelling long match, as both of them will give it all to grab the golden opportunity!

    Must watch matches
    :
    RI vs TTY
    WSX vs LXR
    SN vs SJH
    NKM/GP vs TYT/YY
    VA vs Wei Nan
    Ko/Kim vs Zhang/Jia Yifan

    Predictions?

    WZM is in the Chinese team to record video of his teammates.
    I saw him recording Tian houwei's match, Xue Song's match and saw him moving many times in the media row with the camcorder.

    P.S : How tall is he? Looks so tall. As tall as Chen Long if my eyes are to be believed. Super slim as well.

    Camera? I bunked my classes these two days to get real insight of badminton world.

    My poor potato had to bear the responsibility of capturing Gill biased Clarke who couldn't sit any further. Almost tied with the roof.

    Goh/Tan vs the danes Mads is interesting.
    Maheswari/Polii vs Tang/Yu is excellent
    Vittinghus vs Momota could be spectacular

    All those matches are on tv! Such a good program.
    Otherwise
    Anga/ricky vs the Kims is important (for qualification to OLY)
    Son vs Tommy is two players with the same style, might be a bit boring
    Xue Song vs MZ is also perhaps not the best, but will determine if we can hope for a Xue Song vs Momota clash next round!

    MS suffers many setbacks, badminton enthusiasts need longer time to watch the blockbuster classic duel Lin D-Lee CW as both of them got unexpected defeat against Son WH and Wei Nan respectively. Another title contender Jorgensen also sent packing by the well-improved Xue Song, Tian HW and Chou TC couldn't go further in this tournament, lost to their opponents with different fashion. At top-half draw we'll see last year runner-up Viktor Axelsen against Lee Chong Wei's conqueror, Wei Nan while 2012 champion Son Wan Ho will up against 8th seed Tommy Sugiarto. The remaining highest seeded player in this category, Kento Momota will be tested by the in-form Hans Kristian Vittinghus and the giant-killer Xue Song has European rival once again, none but Germany fighter Marc Zwiebler.

    It's not out of script for WS quarterfinal, the favourites progress as predicted earlier. The tall P.V. Sindhu will face tricky test Bae Yeon Ju, head to head stats favour to the Korean but home hopeful scored first winning in their last three meetings. The battle of skillful shuttlers, Ratchanok Intanon v Tai Tzu Ying, equal chance for this tie, they're known for deceptive and unpredictable shots that awe badminton fans. Two Chinese stars will face off, Li Xuerui v Wang Shixian, their clash happens frequently in this year. The Olympic Champion Li had thrilling match against Porntip Buranaprasertsuk yesterday. Indian jewel Saina Nehwal is favoured to eliminate Sung Ji Hyun.

    Defending champion Chai B/Hong W were ousted by INA potential duo, Gideon/Sukamuljo. China is really struggling in this department as the negative trend continues for all their elite pairs, wake-up call for upcoming Thomas Cup. Current NZL winner and runner-up still manage good run, Ko SH/Shin BC will take on former world top 5, Taiwanese Lee SM/Tsai CH and Pratama/Suwardi have two-time WC bronze medalist Kim GJ/Kim SR. Malaysian top-ranked Goh VS/Tan WK will challenge last year beaten finalist Conrad/Kolding. One remaining semifinal ticket will be contested between two unseeded pairs, Gideon/Sukamuljo v Chen HL/Wang CL.

    Top-seed Maheswari/Polii should apply better strategy this time how to overcome their nemesis Tang YT/Yu Y as they never won in five previous meetings. Netherlands pair, Muskens/Piek have daunting task to meet world number one Matsutomo/Takahashi. At lower half of draw, Chinese promising combination Chen QC/Jia YF will test their capability against reigning European Champion, Pedersen/Rytter Juhl. Another Japanese contestant at this stage, Fukuman/Yonao have easy opponent this evening - local pair Sahdev/Santosh - after they dumped Korean number one Jung KE/Shin SC yesterday.

    Three China XD relatively new partnerships and one established pair advance to last eight, Liu YC/Tang JH will up against Issara/Amitrapai who knocked out 8th seed Shin BC/Chae YJ at second round, one semi ticket has been secured through Lu K/Huang YQ v Wang YL/Chen QC. And Zhang W/Jia YF have heavyweight rival, second seed Ko SH/Kim HN. Danish finest Fischer/Pedersen will meet tricky Indonesian combo Widianto/Dili.

    LIVE TV (Court 1, 02.00pm) matches :

    1) Ratchanok Intanon (THA) v Tai Tzu Ying (TPE)
    2) Mads Conrad Petersen/Mads Pieler Kolding (DEN) v Goh V Shem/Tan Wee Kiong (MAS)
    3) Nitya Krishinda Maheswari/Greysia Polii (INA) v Tang Yuanting/Yu Yang (CHN)
    4) Sung Ji Hyun (KOR) v Saina Nehwal (IND)
    5) Hans Kristian Vittinghus (DEN) v Kento Momota (JPN)

    I suspect a Xue Song / Momota semi would be better!

    Chou Tien Chen was just there to collect his check yesterday. The tanking was so obvious, it was hilarious. Chou's smash looked weaker than Wang Shixian. Chou - The Tank Engine. Very Bad Chouuuuuuuu !

    Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei didn't come to India SS to throw their matches. They would have skipped the tournament if they didn't want to win. They are both guilty of taking it easy and not maintaining focus. They needed to play at a high level as Lin Dan did at the All England final. It is difficult to maintain that kind of level consistently, once you are 30+. Wei Nan and Son Wan Ho had their fairytale moments and this will do a lot to boost their confidence and morale. This will also give other players the hope that they can also topple the legends. I won't be surprised if the legends fail to make the final in Rio. ;)
