    Not the first time in recent memory he is having trouble closing out games ... Not even that surprised by the loss, more p*ss*d I lost track of the matches and didn't get a wager in :D. The return on HH was 12:1!

    I feel for Peter as it looks like the Olympics has come a year too late for him.

    Ya, I saw this match.
    Petya won 1st set.
    Yao Jie looked so tired trying to win the 2nd set, I thought the "ambulance" is on stand-by to carry her:D, but she still managed to win 2nd set (and Petya still looked fresh and fit).
    I thought the 3rd set for Yao Jie is a gonna because YJ "walked like an old lady" after every point. Am very surprised that Petya started making more mistakes (and showed tireness) when Petya could not finished off the points.
    Well done . . . Yao Jie (Its mind over body in the 3rd set) :)

    Yeah, it's good news for CJ, sad end for PG in this tourney...
    Hopefully PG can do well in New Delhi next week ;)

    Beside PG, another top seed and hot fave Fischer/Pedersen also have gone, two biggest upsets here.

    I'm not so surprised with Adcock/Bankier going down to the poles. Kind of expected it tbh. Henri's victory is not that big of a surprise after yesterday's match vs PG.

    Anyone else notice how upset Axelsen was about couple of line calls? Do you think they were influenced by the home crowd or were they just accidental? (Assuming they were wrong, of course.)
