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.
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.
