    Surprised that Qiao Bin lost to an unknown/new Korean player. Seems that Korea too has several potential future winners. Good for the game on the whole.

    It seems they are trying to increase the number of participants in the men's singles category in the world championship 2013. Let's see what happens. When compared to china, India is far far behind in all category. We wish to give a good try in every competition and Let's hope for the best..
    Pawar has been around far longer than all these new names (new except Bhat and Kashyap). He may be 3rd tier now but not too long ago he probably was nr.2 behind Anand Chetan (before Kashyap's rise as well). Think he was in the BWF training centre in the past and/or training in an academy in Denmark ... think he also used to play in the Danish league.

    are you sure about that?so is it implied that Tian Houwei won WJC 2009 (4 years ago) in the age of 16 years old????

    Hwang Jong Soo is not a young player. he has been around since 07/08...
    It's just because many bcer overrate many young china players...
    win excellently once, and then think that he is the next lindan, bao, yang yang, zhao j, sun jun etc etc
    Just like brazil in football. an 18 yo Brazillian footballer, score 1 goal, and then the club place a hefty price tag around 20 million euro. we know the story, many of them going flop.
    if you follow world junior scene, you will know that korea dont have great junior ms talent... maybe some good... but not great.

    Glad to see them switch to doubles instead of retiring outright.
    Some, like Shoji Sato, had been successful in the transition.
    I wonder how they would fare if LD and LCW were to one day partner each other.
    That should make the MD players very nervous.
    See, they were arguing about who should be playing in front.

    I just noticed:

    On the TS page for the NZ Open, is a small frame providing live tweets from the organisation's Twitter account (NZBadOpen), with links to breaking news. Pretty neat!

    Here's a classic tweet :

    @AusBadOpen ease your badminton withdrawal by following the @NZBadOpen. Better than going cold turkey

    AP beat the Australia Open Champion THW and then go on to lost the next round. It seems this is happening regularly for AP (where he beat a relatively good player and then subsequently losing the next round to a relatively unknown/good descent player).

    Anand will be 27 this year, and time is running out for him to shine. Was a good 'encouragment' for AP to beat THW but AP could not keep up the good performance. Was it lacking in skill? But definately not lacking in the experience dept.

    It's Anup Sridhar who shocked Taufik Hidayat at second round of 2007 WC.
