    )hey chaps, i really have no idea how much autogrpahs of badminton players are worth... i ran my little arse off in the HK open chasing players to sign my shirt...:D :D :D

    on that shirt, i have the signatures of... gao ling, zhang jun, kim dong moon, ra kyung min, ha tae kwon, sigit b, trikus haryanto, limpele, eng hian, lin dan, chen hong, rikke olsen, JR:)D ), boeson, jens eriksen, huang sui, zhang ning, cai yun, fu haifeng, bao chunlai, xia xuanze, choong tan fook, lee wan wah, zheng bo, lee hyun il, lee dong soo, yoo yong sung, the malaysian doubles coach (forgot his name), kim yong hyun...

    how much do you reckon that shirt is worth?

    sigh...didnt get peter gade, camilla, candra or xie xingfang...got rejected by gong ruina cuz she was all dejected after losing the final, rejected li yongbo myself cuz he's such a badtempered old fogey..

    i was accept autographs from Li Yongbo, TianBY, TangXF, Xia, GongRN (she is prettier in person!) and some others...

    but was rejected by Wei Yili. she just kinda waved me off.. :(

    Me and my G/f dont like wei yilli, she was rude to her when she ask fo rher autograph. She said she was tired, which was fair enough, but I still dont like her, Zhoa tinting (her partner, looked even moer tired, but she still signed, like her!)

    haha read some article somewhere that she gets very worked up after matches so i guess u prob picked the wrong time... last singapore open a kid approached her and not only did she sign, she brought his shirt in to the restricted player's section and got all the china team member's there to sign on it... must have been like 20 signatures!! haha she's actually quite nice i guess... haha

    I got a photo with her after one match which she had won. She sure was not pleased at the request but still obliged. Maybe because she feels tired after the match. Trying to get an autograph after she lost a match is not very tactful:D You are sure one brave person :p But if you don't try, you never know!!!

    actually Boonsak Polsana of thailand came second that time, but i didn't get his signature either.

    I caught Bao Chunlai going down an elevator and kinda screamed his name in excitement--he looked around at me like i was a retard. I managed to run down the stairs fast enough to catch him (his elevator had restricted access).

    I found Lin Dan warming up in preparation for the finals on the training courts with only sang yang and zheng bo--i asked him for his autograph and afterwards wished him good luck in Chinese, but he kinda mumbled a strange sounding reply back
    :)
