    Yup, Sally Yeh is a famous HKG female artist.
    Another ex-wife of a tycoon (Zhu Ling Ling) is also a big fan of badminton. I am sure they will be present in the QES :)

    ok. so i am here in Queen Elizabeth Stadium in Hong Kong. matches already started. i see a few HK player as well as Robertson/Emms warming up in the practice court. i will take and posts more pics later here.

    i was told that courtside photo access is not available at least when 3 courts are in use from Nov 27-29. so photos will not be as good for these few days.

    the media room is tiny! the list of journalists and photojournalist is huge, at least 40+ people. it will be impossible to fit everyone in here. and they ran out of network cables, as well as power cable.
