    It would appear that a few Brazillians read the weather forecast and changed their minds before catching their plane: There are numerous walkovers in today's schedule including for Women's Singles ranks number 1 Michelle Li, number 2 Rena Wang and ..... wait for it george ....., number 4 Victoria Montero.

    Updating as per tournamentsoftware:

    For some this tournament is going along swimmingly.
    In women's singles Michelle Li, Victoria Montero and Rena Wang have all made it to the quarter finals without having to play a single game! Misses Li (Can) and Montero (Mex) have at least played some doubles, but Ms Wang (USA) has yet to strike a bird in anger. Guess she's had plenty of time to visit Magnetic Hill and Magic Mountain!

    In MS, some have decided to take a more arduous route. Joseph Rogers (Can) and Alex Tjong (Bra) each required two three-game matches to have the pleasure of meeting today in the QF.
    ______________

    Now you all may go back to watching the SS finale from China.

    To put it another way:

    So, in a manner of speaking, you may say that Ms. Wang (and Li and Montero) have individually and collectively been robbed of the chance of "giving the bird" to their erstwhile opponents.

    Late night update:

    XD top guns Grace/Toby (as you can see, Toby's fallen from Grace) have an easy outing against Lino/Cynthia of Mexico.

    Grether/Reid still bossing the WD section, their opponents just vanished!

    Adrian/Derrick justifying their top billing in MD as well...

    Michelle Li doing likewise in WS

    Yuhan Tan from Belgium doing likewise in MS.

    All matches featuring Christin Tsai were awarded walkovers, as she evidently injured herself yesterday, and retired halfway through her second game against Victoria Na of Australia. Victoria was subsequently defeated by Victoria (nee Montero of Mexico) to signal a final end to her participation in this tourney.

    And that is the end of this communique. Tune in tomorrow at the same time for more news and updates. Maybe.

    Default Finals:

    The 2011 Yonex Canadian International Challenge is over.
    Winners were:
    XD Ng/Gao over Ng/Bruce
    WS Michelle Li over Lianne Tan
    MS Carl Baxter over Michael Lahnsteiner
    MD Liu/Ng over Arthuso/Paiola
    WD Bruce/Li over Grether/Reid

    So the Canadians finish winning 4/5 of the finals. But it sure was nice having so many people travel so far to make things truly international.
    (We'll see you next year , LD_rules?)

    At any rate, it is a standing offer than any worthy BC'er traveling through Nova Scotia can have a good feed of lobster on Fidget's dime. (note the adjective 'worthy' )
    Accommodation available with advance notice. (need time to clean the Lego and Barbie dolls from the pull-out couch. )
    Mmm... Lobster

    Technically all winners here were Canadian, seeing as Baxter is actually born in Canada so clean sweep

    If not next year, then 100% the following year

    Congratulations to Team Canada for doing so well at the Canadian International Challenge 2011. Although expected and anticipated, it is always a nice feeling to actually win almost all of the gongs on offer. Significantly, the WD and XD were also an all-Canada affair.

    IN particular, Michelle Li outshone the others by not only (expectedly) taking the WS title, but then she later paired up with the 7'9" Alex Bruce (editor's note: obligatory hyperbole just got used up) and as unseeded finalists, they vanquished the evergreen duo of #1 seeds Grether/Reid.

    And now, for the Page 2 version of the news.

    The XD on the other hand, has some people questioning the results. It has been suggested by some people that Toby Ng (of the #1 seed pairing with Grace) threatened his brother Derrick that he would eat up all of Derrick's share of the Christmas pudding if he got in the way. It was subsequently reported that Derrick was seen stumbling about the court like a zombie while Alex Bruce almost single-handedly rained retribution on the hapless Toby. However, as always, he was rescued in time by the saving Grace.

    Thank you Team Canada, for a wonderful early Christmas present to all your fans. God bless you all. And Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays!

    It's good to see Michelle Li lifting another title at home. She has good potential.

    The Belgians must have a lot of money if they can send their coach with them, I actually know who the guy is, but his name has slipped my mind at this point
