    A little tension calming relief during the interval





    But our tournament stringer is still going strong...



    We have to get good shots of the audience as well..



    The stadium is more than 90% full in this expanded arena.



    But this crowd is hard to please.

    Notice how Wang Xin is not intimidated by her opponent. This sort of action we see more from the Danes. The umpire didn't see anything wrong













    Just a few of the ladies doubles...well, can't have everything so exciting in one day.













    OK, no dancing during this particular interlude but the volunteer medical staff get a note of appreciation

    Sorry, missed out on the "very exciting" men's singles...:roll eyes:
    Oh dear, forgot to take a picture of Lin Dan.

    Chen Jin is obviously confused why team orders are not being followed...








    On to men's doubles: eagerly anticipated by all. No 1 vs No 2 in the world.

    Action is what we want - action is what we get!!



    Jung giving all he has





    Ohh, Lee Yong Dae...!!!



    Line judge doesn't want to be left out of the action



    The battle continues







    Cai Yun plays a "fake" - a dropshot but it didn't win the point..



    Wow, he does hit it hard



    And breaks the string...he throws his racquet in disgust



    Let's get a better look at the racquet - poor stringing job or mishit by the player?
    It's broken in two places..



    Pressured in defense - the play was so fast.





    Jung is still going



    And the Korean coach is really into it now



    Near the end and Fu Hai Feng shows the tension





    OK, we have an intermission here because I have more photos which I realized I just missed out on!!!!

    End of 2nd game.

    Change of clothes for the Koreans to the delight of some fans





    Still going at a frentic pace



    Fu Hai Feng shows us he's not all power with a steep half-strength smash



    Cai Yun is unhappy with the service judge



    And Fu Hai Feng has to get involved as well



    It's just so tense out there



    but this dive by Jung doesn't work out



    Cai Yun and Fu Hai Feng level out the scores



    And take the match....



    Let's quickly switch to Fu Hai Feng



    Some people are very happy







    And Lee Yong Dae is very disappointed



    The smiles continue



    but no smiling in the interview....





    Jung Jae Sung and Lee Yong Dae showing how polite they are even in defeat. They would have been the crowd favourites against any other non-chinese pair.





    Krisna and Hauge, please note - Djarum girls have some competition as well

    ......next year

    Found out that the lights actually came from Guangzhou. It's the same lighting that was used in the Asian Games. Probably the positioning is different compared to Asian Games.

    The lights were turned down in intensity after a couple of days.

    AChan, those are incredible shots. the timing for the expression are impeccible.

    AChan actually went through a LOT of trouble getting us those photos. the flash card that held those shots was corrupted and she went through a few different methods to recover the files. at the end having to get it done by a store professionally.

    so please be grateful that we get to enjoy the photos.

    No wonder it took her so long to upload the final batch! I kept waiting for AChan's posting, thinking she had to be too busy. I always enjoy the perspective of her shots! Together with Cheung's and kylee's postings, they have been a perfect combination of quality coverage of the HKO! Thank you AChan, Cheung, and kylee!

    Now give those knees a well deserved rest, must have been sore from the prolong squadding and kneeling!
