    I don't think any of the above NZ players are in national squad.

    I am afraid he is too big headed after winning against the World No.1 last week.
    He should stay focus.

    I remember that, it was very shocking news back then. An unpredictable upset.

    Are you sure? I watched the match. LCW might be not at his 100% form, but for sure not "clearly off". LCW was at very good form as I noticed.

    here is the funny part, his father believe that he is one of the player that can win a BWF Level 1 competition....

    i can imagine that he is being put on thomas cup and pray that the other players win for him...

    first of all, LCW def was not at his peak, but his 80% is better than most of the field, which explains why/how he got to the SF at the australian open.with that said, i think THW lost because of a combination of factors.1. he must be physically drained from his participation in the AO. he was prob a bit lucky to be able to get to the finals of he AO (his path to the finals prob was not as hard fought as some others), but he did have to play SF and men's singles Final, which is 2-3 matches more than any others.2. he may have taken his opponents lightly,3. (we will never know) LYB may have asked him to do "as much as he physically could" in this tourney, but relent the finals crown to someone else such as his teammate in the AO mens singles final. so as far as the chinese mens singles team is concerned, this singles title will not be won by THW, decision made right after he won the AO. we may never know LYB's grand scheme for his chinese team, unless he decides to write a memoir.

    Riky Widianto/Richi Puspita Dili progress to the QF after beating another Chinese pair in rubber-set. Up next will be the home pair of Ross Smith/Renuga Veeran.

    too many excuses...
    the only reason why tian houwei lost was because the opponent is better than him on the field.
    anand pawar is simply better than tian in tuesday

    Riky's injury during the Macau Open GPG affected his form in the first quarter this year. Yes, I am hoping for them to lift a GP title this week.

    Give us some inside news about players and stuff, pleeease!! It would be nice to know more about the players, and what NZ players do, or work at when they are not doing badminton...
    Lol..I'm going to say I'm as bad as yours..I was last involved with the NZ players way back in like 2009! So has been a while. I see though Vicki Copeland is the sole NZ rep making it to the second round of ladies singles. When I last played Vicki, she was like this 18 or 19 year old. It was in an inter-club singles match. I was leading 9-4 in the rubber set (when we used to play to 11) when I went to hit a shot at the back of the court and then SNAP! I thought someone hit me at the back of my left leg but alas, it wasn't that..I tore my achilles tendon and was out of action for like 12 weeks after that..sigh! Happy memories! :P

    Most of the top players that I know have now retired and I see all those juniors now coming up the senior ranks! I remember poor Vicki was crying and feeling bad like she caused my injury lol. So after that walkover, my head-to-head against her stood at 1-1..darn it! :P

    Against Emma Rodgers...good lord, we had a few tough 3 set battles but she prevailed more than I did. She's definitely the better player for sure! I just happened to occassionally used the right tactic and placement to blunt her power lol..in short, the wise old lady having to outsmart the young quick fox!

    So can't provide you with much more insight than that except to say most Kiwi players are really down to earth and cool people! Those of you at the tournament should go up to them and have a chat If you do see Emma, tell her Adelina says hi from Brisbane :P

    Well, actually a couple of things kept repeating themselves in my mind when I watched the LCW-THW match. LCW seemed to have ragged breathing almost from the start of the match. And he was loath to use full-powered smashes from the baseline or thereabouts, except on the rare occasion. These two together indicated (to me at least) that there was a cautionary approach to his play. His footwork and movement otherwise, was "normal service."

    Not to take away anything from Tian Houwei, who played perhaps (so far) the game of his life.

    Yet another blow for Goh V. Shem/Lim Khim Wah as they lost in R16 to Li Junhui/Liu Yuchen.

    What a disaster for Renna Suwarno as she lost 15-21, 18-21. She was about to force rubber-set at 17-11 but was taken aback by Ayumi Mine's recovery and only won 1 more point since.

    Ajay Jayaram is down 14-21, 4-7 to Hong Ji Hoon. A very puzzling display from the talented Indian.
