2011 Hong Kong Open SS: Quarter-Finals Friday 18-November
Some South East Asian players are participating in the SEA Games this week, and therefore they won't be here in Hong Kong.
Congratulations to those who have made it to the Quarter-Finals.

For Live Streaming, perhaps BCers from different countries can post the links that are working for their regions. Different countries sometimes cannot use the same links. But many have found this link OK;

Hendra A. Gunawan/Alvent Yulianto Chandra  vs Ko Sung Hyun/Yoo Yeon Seong  - this might be the end of the road for AG/Alvent, but I think they have a good chance of beating Ko/Yoo. The record between them is 1-1 this year and they nearly beat the KOR pair in the Taiwan Open GPG SF, losing 18-21 in the rubber-set, having wasted a 7 pts lead after the interval! They just need to cut down on their unforced errors.

PAWing for Pan Pan?
It's interesting to find that many BCers are PAWing for Pan Pan (in the XD QF). I'm still not confident to PAW for her.

I also think Lin Dan will "give up" today. He does not want to risk meeting LCW again so soon, especially after beating him last week, even though it's an exhibition match.

Look's like CHN is preparing Hong Wei/Pan Pan to be CHN's no 3 XD behind Zhang/Zhao and Xu/Ma. Their job is to prevent pairs like the 2nd XD pair of each country, esp Nova/Butet, Laybourn/Rytter-Juhl, Lee/Chien, Songphon/Kunchala from getting into the Olympics. They accomplished that last night by beating Lee/Chien.
In MD, they have been aggressively preparing Shen Ye/Hong Wei (the HKG SS is their 15th tourney this year) and Liu Xiaolong/Qiu Zihan (the HKG SS is their 17th tourney this year!) since last year, to take over the mantle of Fu/Cai and Guo/Chai. Looks like Tao Jiaming/Zhang Nan are also being prepared now.
