    I've to hand it to RedShuttle and kelana for believing Sun Yu can create a miracle of sort by overcoming Soldier Schenk, which she did in two straight games to boot. After dealing with Schenk's power play, she next has to grapple with the trick shots and high degree of deceptiveness of Tai Tzu Ying in the QF, can she handle it? We shall see.

    hmm, guess nothing much can the government do.. maybe cloud seeding in Singapore (reduce the haze) and Sumatra (to stop the fire) is one of the way

    Singapore's smog index hit the critical 400 level on Friday, making it potentially life-threatening to the ill and elderly people, according to a government monitoring site.

    The record level was reached at 11:00 am (0300 GMT) after a rapid rise in the Pollutant Standards Index (PSI), which measures the haze crisis.

    According to Singapore government guidelines, sustained PSI average levels above 400 on a 24-hour basis "may be life-threatening to ill and elderly persons".

    If the 400 index average is sustained over a 24-hour period, the government advises all children, elderly people and persons with existing diseases to stay indoors, keep windows closed and avoid physical exertion as much as possible. - 2013-06-21

    I wonder if they can induce rain to help reduce the PSI?

    On another note, one of the Indonesian minister called the Singapore government "childish" for complaining about the issue.....what the, maybe he needs spend a couple of days living in smoke too. :rolleyes:

    This could turn out to be a VERY interesting match. Maeda/Kakiiwa are clearly on the comeback trail with a vengeance; the CHN pair better watch out.

    MZ has discovered a rich vein of form after a 2-year lapse, I think. Time for him to hit the high notes once again.

    Reproduced from SSC homepage:


    ADVISORY FROM SINGAPORE SPORTS COUNCIL ON CURRENT HAZE SITUATION
    [TABLE="width: 100%"]
    [TR]
    [TD="class: home_text"] We strongly encourage children, seniors and persons with medical conditions or respiratory ailments, including heart or lung diseases, to refrain from participating in all outdoor sporting activities. We also urge all users to limit prolonged or heavy outdoor exertion.

    The Singapore Sports Council (SSC) will continue to monitor the PSI readings provided by NEA and forecasts by the Meteorological Services of Singapore (MSS). We will close sports facilities and cancel or postpone sports activities if the haze condition worsens.

    Meanwhile, the SSC has issued an advisory to National Sports Associations (NSAs) and Sports Events Organisers (SEOs) on the haze situation. We recommend that all NSAs and SEOs take the risk assessment and haze action plans seriously for all sporting activities in Singapore.

    Thank you.

    The Management
    Singapore Sports Council

    Saina vs Lindaweni.. Saina need to work hard to overcome stiff challenge from Linda.
    Wang Shixian vs Wang Yihan - I go for Wang shixian.
    Mark vs TMN - Go Go.... Mark..
    Rajiv vs Tommy - Its unpredictable.. Rajiv has the chances.. No offense to Tommy. He might be missing his extra-charged crowd for back-up..;)
    Li Xuerui vs Sapsiree - Can sapsiree make an "U" turn.

    perhaps, perhaps, possibly the minister was just having thought: "the land and forests are ours... the haze is yours"... if there's anything to blame, put it into the wind...
