    not very close. they were either hanging out in the very exclusive VIP room (with security guards at the door), or they are doing exclusive interview which are off limits.

    and there were no press conference even though all the tables were setup.

    ah well.

    That's kinda disappointing that the crowd did not have access to the players. I hope this is not a sign of badminton's future

    well, in a way, it is true. they are merely feets away. but not reachable distance.

    the ones who really want to get close, the first 50 who buy $100 worth of Li-Ning products will get to meet them and get their autographs.

    Cool. Looks like while you're hard at work shadowing LD/BCL/LYB, someone is shadowing you. They're just as excited to see/find you. :cool:

    "You can see Kwun there...", "Where, where???":D
