    The last sixteen will bring some more entertaining shows for all badminton diehard fans, let's take a look today's highlights.

    Four seeded MS players, Son Wan Ho, Viktor Axelsen, Chou Tien Chen, HK Vittinghus suffered early exit yesterday, both title contenders Chen Long & Srikanth pushed into the limit to pass first round by their solid opponent. The underdogs will battle to go further in this premier event, Hu Yun against Momota, Rumbaka v Wei Nan and Tian HW v Srikanth should be interesting to follow.

    Last year winner, Li Xuerui will get arduous rival in this stage, none but bright talent Akane Yamaguchi who may upset the Olympic Champion considering the top-seed has not yet back to her best. Another JPN leading lady, Nozomi Okuhara will meet Intanon who produced lots of energy to dispose Mitani at R/32, tough draw indeed for this Thai prodigy.

    Some exciting duels are on the way, rematch of IND SS Final also Lee SM/Tsai CH v Astrup/Rasmussen and INA Pratama/Suwardi opposes KOR Kim GJ/Kim SR. Conrad/Kolding should learn from their losing last Sunday and do better this time while young Danish combos may trouble TPE established pair. Both KOR and INA have guaranteed 1 quarterfinal ticket each through this category that most likely will be grabbed by their aces Lee YD/Yoo YS and Ahsan/Setiawan respectively.

    Top two seed were ousted early here, big upset was created by INA back up Awanda/Istirani to stun #2 seed Pedersen/Juhl n straight-games last night also CHN young and dangerous Ou DN/Yu XH to beat Matsutomo/Takahashi as well. Another upset, Kakiiwa/Maeda once again downed to KOR pair, Chang YN/Jung KE. Maheswari/Polii still seeks their superb performance after sensational triumphant in Incheon last September, today they will up against Indian #1 Gutta/Ponnappa. Home crowd will cheer Vivian Hoo/Woon KW and Anscelly/Soong FC as last hopeful to advance into next round.

    It's not a smooth start for 2nd seed Fischer/Pedersen at first round and tougher obstacle will wait them from this stage, Lu/Huang and possibly Liu/Bao tomorrow. Hot fave, Zhang/Zhao looks sharp and should have no problem to book last eight. And INA best hope Ahmad/Natsir is expected to prevail.

    LIVE TV (court 1, 05.00pm local time) matches :

    1) Li Xuerui (CHN) v Akane Yamaguchi (JPN)
    2) Angga Pratama/Ricky Karanda Suwardi (INA) v Kim Gi Jung/Kim Sa Rang (KOR)
    3) Vivian Hoo Kah Mun/Woon Khe Wei (MAS) v Anggia Shitta Awanda/Ni Ketut Mahadewi Istirani (INA)
    4) Nozomi Okuhara (JPN) v Ratchanok Intanon (THA)
    5) Tian Houwei (CHN) v Srikanth Kidambi (IND)

    Try the toilets. But why do you want to see the VIPs?

    The VIP section is very near the Players section, so you can get a peek at the Players and probably get a pic/autograph :p
    It was just a joke anyway, they probably have tight security there and require you to show your VIP/Guest pass.

    I was ignorant yesterday and didn't know where the Premium section was, so I asked some of the guards and they told me to use the lift and go down, I did and was at the staff office, and near the HAWKEYE room. Went back to the lift to go back up stairs and I was in the same lift as Indonesia's Team Official and 2 Indonesian female players, one of them being Bellaetrix Manuputty!

    A hard battle for Fischer/Pedersen to dump Lu/Huang, 21-15 / 15-21 / 21-19. Next, they will face another Chinese hurdle, Liu/Bao.

    Right, hope to see more of it from her. Nevertheless, a good win for WSX.

    Absolutely fantastic match between China's Lu Kai / Huang Yaqiong and Denmark's Joachim Fischer Nielsen / Christinna Pedersen (the No.2 seed in XD)

    The Danes just scraped through in the decider.

    What an awful way for Lu/Huang to lose after being 14-9 up in G3, it ruined my morning.

    Lu/Huang still unable to break out against the top XD pairs Fischer/Pedersen and the like, couldn't hold their lead in the 3rd set after equalizing with the 2nd set.
