    Too bad that this wasnt on the TV court. I guess Adcock/Bankier will never get the form of the WC, their last performances werent so great..

    MS:

    Some good matches tomorrow, the main contenders are still there (I.e. Viktor, Kashyap and Chan YK) would expect them, and probably Scott Evans (if he's fully recovered from injury) to make up the SF. Exiciting SF matches in prospect.

    WS:

    Shocks today in WS, Ai Goto went today (all the way from Japan for that?) dissapointing. Susan managed to take the lead in the GBR race again over Cann, Cann as expected (by me at least) lost first round, Susan lost 2nd, but still is quite badly injured so all things considered... Not many other shocks that I recall...

    MD:

    Adcock/Mills went, infact GB representation is gone. Most good seeded pairs withdrew, so not that interesting.

    WD:

    White/Wallwork went (surprisingly) leaving path open for Cooper/Gilmour. Expecting a final to contain Swedish pair #4 seeds.

    XD:

    Now that, both Russian pairs withdrew, coast is clear for a Sco/Eng vs Eng/Eng final, barring any slip ups, tomorrow's matches are no walkovers though.

    A big shock when strong fave Ai Goto succumbed to Czech Republic player. Pi Hongyan has good prospect to win here...;)

    Vile Lang currently beating Viktor, but is really using some very dirty tactics in this match...

    So Ville takes out Viktor in a strange match to say the least...

    I don't what was going on, but there were definitely some mind games going on. At some point, if I heard correctly, Ville was complaining that he doesn't get to switch shuttles because of his nationality.

    He seems to be the typical "ass on court, nice guy off court" guy. I really hate to play against those.. But the coverage provided by BE ist very good, I'd love to have some after match interviews on the SS circuit.

    Evans vs. Must interrupted due to what seems like water dropping from the ceiling

    Every time I watch Ville, there is always something happening. He knows how to get on top of his opponent mentally all the time, and of the umpire allows it, then that's fine I suppose.

    Still he is a very good player...

    This match between Evans and Must should be a very close one

    This match between Evans and Must should be a very close one.

    I would say that this match could go to Game 3. And lasting longer than 60 minutes. :D:D:D

    I think Evans could win.

    I know that, just wasn't sure if they'd moved, but seems the umpire is in a different position and the camera doesnt change.

    Seems like they just turned the camera instead of moving it
