    i have been wondering where the chinese mens team B players (such as tian houwei and xue song) have gone. they were doing well some 6 months ago, but then we don't see them in tournaments anymore.

    Part of LYB/CBA's strategy not to burn out their young players or, worse still, kill their badminton careers prematurely, I suppose.

    Lest I'm misunderstood,let me explain that my query on the lighting in the arena is not targeted at the Copper Box. It's just that once in a blue moon in various tournaments,we see players looking up at the lighting when they mishit an overhead shot as if it's the lighting affecting them. As I understand it, besides the drift, the other environmental condition affecting the player is the lighting in the venue.

    sometimes the lighting is so bright that viewers at home watching can hardly see the birdie at high speed.

    On paper scenario, former world #1 Wang Xin has bright prospect to advance into last four and likely to challenge second seed Porntip.

    On paper alone, WX could beat all WS players in this London Grand Prix using her Right hand.

    Song Xue wins his first match against Dmytro Zavadsky 21-13 21-18. I wonder how far he, and Tian, will be able to go.

    XS will probably get through to the the QF. Not so sure about THW and HY. I always have a lot of respect for the Danes, their skills, fighting spirits etc especially when they are playing in Europe.

    Will there be a chance that XS meets THW in the final, are they in the same bracket?

    Henri Hurskaininen made it to the 3rd round! I did not expect that, seeing as he lost last time he played Nan Wei But...He did play pretty well, at least score wise with Boonsak in USA and WC. Wonder if he will stand any chance against what I think will be Axelsen tomorrow...

    Lots of WO's and retires for this tournament I think.

    Had not seen any of THW's two matches. So don't know much about his present form especially when both his opponents were probably physically drained by their participation in the Czech open. Just managed to see the ending stage of HY's match in Kakibara. Impressed by his fighting spirit. JOJ and HKV are players who can trouble CJ, CL and even the two out-of-this-world players on their good day. Let's wait and see what happens tomorrow.

    Wonder if the lighting is suitable for badminton. However, from the look of it, the whole place looks welcoming. Let's hope the London GPG gets elevated to SS status in good time.
    well, i don't like the orange carpet. it's also distracting.
