Another veteran Pi Hongyan went the distance to take out Chloe Magee, 16-21,21-18,and 21-14.
However,Inthanon's victory over her POR opponent was one-sided. She's on course to cross swords with Juliane Schenk, a pity either of them has to be out of contention for a medal.

Pedro Yang looked like he was going to have a heart attack there

Really happy that Kevin Cordon won though

So, team GB's challenge is eliminated with the defeat of Rajiv Ouseph. Excellent work, Kevin Cordon in his favourite hunting ground .....

All these tough challenges and some upsets is good for world badminton at large. Those who were given the chance to cross swords with top players really took their chances well to perform at the highest stage.

Not bad Kevin Cordon except that Showman Sasaki is waiting for you.

although tian/zhao are ranked two in group D, isnt it still possible for an all chinese wd final? If wang/yu lose their match againts korea tonight (fixed match), that puts them in the second spot, thus they'll be playing in the bottom half whereas tian/zhao will play in the top half???

A real pity, poor athletes...
The same story propably in the MD, where it is possible to fix the QF CHN vs CHN...
Btw. if the CHN WD play each other IŽll root for Zhao/Tian, overall I hope the Danes (and Koreans) can put up more upsets like today

But MD, look at it this way....so if Cai-Fu plays to avoid their teammates....then...they will finish as runners up and end up meeting Boe/Mogensen followed by Jung/Lee in the bottom half of the draw.
That is not a very smart thing to do from the Chinese side.....

hi everyone, so Tontowi/Natsir haven't play yet today?
07-31-2012, 11:27 AM #286
i agree that they both may switch half for some tactical purpose.
scroll back then you'll find lots of interesting tactical moves such as the give-away from Mizuki Fujii / Reika Kakiiwa to Cheng Wen Hsing / Chien Yu Chin .... MANY UPSETS today Olympic jinx!!

Omg, even the Japanese pair is faking their match.
There's no way Fujii/Kakiiwa will lose to Cheng/Chen. Their h2h was amazing.
Well understandable. To avoid facing Zhao/Tian, they do have amazing record against the Danish pair.

the HK girls Poon Lok Yan and Tse Ying Suet actually have very good techniques. but mentally just kinda day dreaming most of the time. they need a better coach to whip them into playing better badminton than this.
while frankly the Japanese in general don't have the best looking strokes but they trumps everybody mentally.
