    Shoot. I was hoping somewhere closer to me, I volunteered last year since I was visiting for 2 months, but now I can't see the tourney :(

    ^^ If only they set up finals to be like that, but I'm not sure they will spend the time to rearrange the courts. They can, but will they put in extra work to do it? haha

    They should include a boxing ring in case the Thai players come back this year if they are over the ban... lol.

    They'll probably arrange it 3 courts across like they always do, then remove the 2 side courts, leaving the centre court for finals day and some room on the side for prize presentation and post game interview. This way they can keep the same lighting.

    Jongjit and his ex-partner Bodin got into a fight while switching sides after their first set. Bodin was the aggressor, Jongjit tried to avoid it. Issues why this happened is uncertain, but that basically sums it up.

    You can say Bodin was the physical aggressor, but Jongjit was the initial aggressor with his verbal taunts during the game. Granted Bodin should have controlled himself better and not react the way he did, but add a bit of bad history between them, and that was what happened.

    Oh, I didn't see much of the game. They put me on 'patrol' out of the arena, so I only got to sneak in a few rallies here and there. Was right on time for the first punch though :(

    Anyways, I hear Lee Hyun Il is at the CO this year! That must be pretty exciting, it's a shame I'm not there.
