    Sometimes I think this sport should be renamed to Buttminton. Smacking each other's butt seems like a norm.

    Well done! First time caught on camera? What briefs do you think he should wear? White on white? Guess the female fans are gonna play the game of spot the colour of the brief soon. Pity LYD broke so many female hearts this time.

    It means Sho only take exams on LD and Viktor is outside his syllabus, so he lost. DPY defeated SDK in IO because he had stamina advantage. On same stamina basis, it would be difficult for DPY to defeat any top 5 INA MS. TH is every youngster s dream opponent. He will play properly but would not be too upset to lose. Winning against TH is always a confidence booster so he s good for youngsters who have belief they can take him out. CWF did his homework and was even calm in closing. He and Daren Liew must have benefitted from sparring with LCW. CWF has bulked up but looks like can still improve on the strength aspect.

    That looks like the šahovnica.
    Maybe he was supporting Croatia in the Euro?
    Thanks for the nice pics.

    The most exciting match today has to be Tago vs WWK. The scores do not truly reflect the match. Some of the rallies were awesome. Although Tago never look like in trouble, WWK put up a good fight. As usual, Tago s court movements are great to watch. He will be a worthy successor to LCW, sooner or later ( more likely, later, given his inconsistency, either exit first round or last.) Derek Wong missed his opportunity to defeat Guru because he underestimated him and it s obvious no homework was done. Guru deserved his win. Team CHN suffered 50% losses, unusual outcome. The impression is if there is little crowd support, they cannot perform. If that does not get better, all CHN could exit by second round. This tournament is fascinating because it s difficult to tell who are gonna be the champions. Half of the matches will be close; the winners will be anybody s guess. There was some odd coach behaviour. After CWF s winning point over TH, coach Rashid, instead of congratulating him, gestured to CWF to hurry up and leave. Who is CWF s regular coach actually? Rashid behaved like a stepfather, like he wasn't pleased CWF made his breakthrough victory. Fire Rashid!

    If that manages to catch your attention, it proves you are still a young auntie at heart. Who would have noticed.....until now.

    Thanks aulia. I'll try my best to get some more interesting shots today. Most of the shots on my camera are photos of butts and backs. More backs than butt. I tried to capture them falling, hence the butt shot (dont think funny :D)

    Let's see how today will go. It'll be the final day of photoshoot for me. Normally QF onwards, I just focus on the games ;)

    By Julien type, do you mean protuding raisins? Hahaha! I think the other asian players are quite modestly padded, so I doubt I can get much of Julien type.

    If you want more Julien, I'll post more tonight. I have a lot of her shots cos she likes to make expressions at the linesman, spectators, so i love to shoot her photos!

    I was there yesterday, I talked with Sindhu P.V. the rising star from India after losing her match to CXJ. She's a very friendly girl, only 16 years old. The press in Singapore only focus on the Singaporeans' post match interview. They don't really bother the interview of other players. I am surprised. I was the only one interviewing her yesterday. :D

    She loves to talk! She really loves to talk a lot! I think she really like to be interviewed by someone. After the match, she walked by first, followed by CXJ, I was looking at her and she was looking at me. But, my target is to interview CXJ not her. Unfortunately, CXJ has refused to be interviewed by me (I don't know why). Then, I quickly ran to the back, fortunately, Sindhu was still there. I still can have something to write for my yesterday's article.

    When I asked a question, she can give me a very long answer. She just kept talking talking. She enjoyed being interviewed! Guess what? She is a very ambitious person. I asked her what is your goal in the future? She said she wanna become the world no. 1 and she wanna be in the top 10 within this year. She looks very happy on her face when she was talking about two months ago she defeated Tai and Schenk in India Open. What's a nice person she is. :D

    It's good to be ambitious. Gives you something to aim for.
