    Now Lin Dan vs Bao Chun Lai. Pity they have to meet so early in the tournament.

    Well, Lin Dan already showed his capabilities in the last 8 in the Malaysian Open and he's just turned 18.
    Bao also 18 is WJC of course, tho China BA ranks Lin higher and he was top seed in the WJC but lost in semis to Bao.
    By comparison, the WJC runner-up who lost to Bao - Kuncoro of Indonesia, lost in straight sets tonight. He isn't as advanced a the Chinese boys but Taufik had better wake up and stop playing the prima donna, or he'll soon be overshadowed by a younger better looking chap.

    The Chinese youngsters seem much tougher because of the intense competition at home. If they slip up, there are 10 more almost as good or even better, ready to take their place. Lachimim

    Hey what happened??
    I thought u'll will it?? :p

    Quote (Lachimi):
    Oh ye Gods, after the great enemies have all been laid low by the God of diseases like a gust of contaminated wind, let Chen Hong win this one. Those muscular tighs encased in his tight mini shorts must be worth something in badminton terms? He's been tormented by too many semis and lost finals this year.
    And the charming GongZC should now have her break after losing to the 2 ugly sisters in successive majors in the last 2 months. They say bad luck comes in threes, but never you believe it: I'll wave my wand and make the midget happy in her rubber shoes!! - no glass sandals, Alas!!
    I'll not predict. I'll will it. Let it happen. Lachimi.

    hey, Gong RN & Zhou Mi are both quite pretty OK?
    and don't call her midget.........Tang Chunjue might be offended also.
    Chen Hong is suffering from 'burnt out'.........thats all. After a short while it will be OK.

    I know, I know. Bad 'feng shui' la, for CH - the court was facing the wrong direction when he played the last set. hey should have moved the building round.
    Even conjurers cannot make their tricks work every time. Right? Now I have to wait for Gong ZC to fulfil at least half my 'will'. Lachimi
