Xue Song won the title, another "famous" MS player, or player having an English name, was Guo Kai. Unfortunately, Guo Kai lost in the early rounds.
All the players under 20 years old, should be in the tournament. The results showed that Xue Song was the one who deserved in the national team, while other teenagers in the national team (especially girls) didn't perform well. That's the reason some local/provincial players (don't have English name, or I don't know their english name) won the championship.

apologies as this is in Chinese, but has some interesting info esp on how Tian got into badminton.
while young, Tian followed his grandmother to watch his younger cousin's badminton training. he wasn't in the school/class but he started imitating the drills on the side. the grandmother managed to convince the coach to allow him in the class. afterwards, he talents shows and started moving up the ranks.
his quest was interrupt with a back/waist injury and had to take 9 months off. doctor advised him to forget about sports but he wouldn't listen.
he is a calm and thinking player and do not show much emotion. his mother can never tell from his tone on the telephone whether he won or not. during the ASO semi he mother didn't bother watching the match as most people will write Tian off and instead went to take a nap. he couldn't reach her via QQ so he called and very excitedly let her know he beat the world number one Lee Chong Wei.
(hope that summarizes it ok. anyone who spotted other details please feel free to translate. thanks!)
1992年出生的田厚威，从小运动细胞就比较发达，幼儿园时都是他带着小朋友玩游戏。小学三年级时的暑 假，由于父母工作比较忙，田厚威寄养在外婆家，跟表弟一起玩。表弟是在羽毛球传统名校——福州台五小念书， 那年暑假报了羽毛球兴趣班。表弟上课，外婆负责接送，于是田厚威就跟着一起去了。表弟在场地中间学，他在场 外跟着做动作。外婆见田厚威也喜欢羽毛球，就恳求老师也收下这个学生。田厚威不是台五小的学生，正常情况下 学校是不收的，但老师被他的执著劲头给打动了，就勉为其难收下了。
田妈妈回忆说，当时训练课有个很枯燥的环节——挥拍，教练把红领巾挂得高高的，学生就冲着红领巾挥拍。 一个多小时训练下来，其他学生只要老师喊停，立马就歇下来，而田厚威还会多训练几分钟。正是他的刻苦劲以及 崭露的天赋，在这个兴趣班他很快就被福州市少体校的教练看中了，开始了系统的学习。一年多后，他又被送到省 少体校。2004年，12岁的田厚威进入了省体工队；2007年被召入国青队；2009年入选 国家队至今。
田厚威的羽球之路，看似顺风顺水，其实不然。他经历了多次腰伤困扰，人们一度以为他要终止运动生涯。田 妈妈印象最深的是2007年的那次，回忆起那次让人绝望的受伤，她在电话那头哽咽了近一分钟才能继续谈话。 她说，2007年他进入国青队，但年底就被确诊为腰椎肩盘突出，从国家队回到福州治疗。妈妈送他去医院，当 时医生建议他，可能的话，就不要再吃体育这碗饭了。从医院回来后，妈妈安慰他，“能练到啥情况再说吧，实在 不行就算了”，本来是想让儿子宽心的，没想到竟刺激到了儿子最敏感的神经。躺在床上的田厚威，唰地两行眼泪 就下来了，之后大哭，他就是不甘心。在福州治疗康复了近9个月，他再次入选国青队。
在打法上，左手握拍的田厚威属于拉吊突击打法，速度快。在性格上，田厚威属于那种喜怒不形于色的，场上 几乎看不出他的表情变化，属于理性型球员。福建省羽毛球队总教练胡芝兰曾评价他说，“他比赛后给我打电话的 口气，我都听不出他是赢球了还是输球了。”但是这次，拿下李宗伟那场比赛，他表现出极少见的激 动。
打半决赛前，李宗伟是与国家队的乔斌交手，当时前者2∶0很轻松地赢下比赛。田厚威的实力不及乔斌，所 以半决赛打李宗伟时，无论是家人还是媒体，都认为比赛无悬念，田厚威能拿下一局就算不错了。以往妈妈都会坐 在电脑前等消息，那天她就直接睡午觉去了，结果他爆冷了。田厚威结束比赛后第一时间在QQ上给妈妈留言“我 赢了”。等了一个多小时，见妈妈没反应，他又按捺不住激动的情绪，给妈妈打了一通电话。妈妈鼓励他后，还提 醒他，“一场比赛还不能证明什么，继续努力！”

Lol! His mom took a nap during the SF?!
Bet she didn't sleep one wink.

She did slept and wasn't aware of the huge upset even when THW posted the result on his QQ weblog for his mom the message, "I won!". After waiting more than an hour without a response from her, he couldn't suppress his excitement and called his mom. His mom after expressing some words of encouragement even reminded him," Just one match can't prove anything,continue to work hard!"

What his wise mother said is true
What his wise mother said is true. THW will need to work hard to stay at his top form.
But it's great for him to have defeated World No.1, LCW. This would boost his confidence in future tournaments. But it could also add extra pressure on him, because other players are all wanting to defeat him from now on.

No need to wait further.....he lost to Anand Pawar in straight-sets.

Back to his mediocre performance of the last 3 years? Hopefully not. What happened to his strong defense today. I noticed that AP pounded down no less than 20 smashes against him. Will not speculate on his defeat. A defeat is a defeat. This defeat is part of his learning curve. A good player must not only know why he won but also why he lost.

After beating Lee Chong Wei in semi-final and claiming Australian Open title
Loses to Anand Pawar in 1st round of New Zealand Open... =="

Btw,the Chinese article posted by kwun also mentioned that Tian Houwei is considered weaker than Qiao Bin, so nobody gave him a chance against Lee CW, just able to take one set would be good already.
For sure that dramatic,spectacular victory over Lee CW has given THW a huge boost, just what every growing, up-and-coming player needs to rise further. I don't think this setback - 1st round defeat by Anand Pawar - could be damaging or in any way undo the immense gain he'd achieved. Plenty of 'capital' to draw on. Strive on with diligence, Tian Houwei !

I'm glad Australian Open is the tournament he won't forget
His breakthrough to international badminton by defeating the world #1 and taking his first GP title
