    Maybe too shy to reveal his face ?
    Maybe for security reasons ??? Otherwise he may have problems handling the girls at the airport? But of course Bro Deng will be around to assist!

    No BC get together = no bespectacled PBSI official pics ....... U can blame Simon for that, wakakakakaka.

    I couldn't take pics during THE CONVERSATION because we were at a very dark corner - wouldn't look right. You would only see our, err, slightly overgrown midriffs.

    WD Semi Final DEN defeated JPN

    DEN's Christinna Pedersen & Kamilla Rytter Juhl (1) were G1 down to JPN's Misaki Masutomo & Ayaka Takahashi (3) but recovered strongly in the next two games to win
    11-21, 21-15, 21-14.

    The pictures told the whole story of the bruising but exciting encounter just over an hour.

    The Japanese duo, with Takahashi down and holding on her thigh asked in agony:

    "Oh God, what are they (Danes) going to do next?" :mad:

    In reply, the Danes exclaimed loudly with ecstasy, clenching their fists and then danced in close embrace after their victory.:D

    Pedersen even offered her racket to the spectators to celebrate their win.

    A moment of confusion for Takahashi.

    For a moment, Takahashi hesitated.

    Snoopy's? or ,,,? :eek:

    WYH is a smasher!

    Caught on camera during her SF match against Han Li which WYH won 21-18, 21-12 in 39 mins.

    Which of WYH's following smashes do you like best?

    Now why does WYH seem to close her eyes when she smashes?
    Is she afraid of hitting her opponent? :D

    In any case, someone saw her at Changi Airport and thought she was a smasher even without her racket. :)

    Seeded #6, the soft-spoken TPE pair of Lee Sheng Mu & Tsai Chia Hsin exceeded most expectations when they advanced to the SF by beating Hoon & Tan #4 MAS in the QF.

    But awaiting the TPE warriors was the KOR duo of Ko & Shin, who themselves surprised many by doing as well even though they were unseeded.

    In the end Ko & Shin surrendered but not without a gallant fight.

    Lee & Tsai deserved a grand appearance in the finals, but were unable to repeat their earlier winning form and had to bow out as Runners-up to CHN's new pair of Cai & Lu.
